Cormac....Social Networking...Etc.

Hey all,

I've taken a break from helping to spotlight the new novels of various author friends. Just too much freelance writing to do right now, as well as family matters.

Have any of you read any novels by Cormac McCarthy. He is a new favorite of mine. I finished The Road in a very short time and then read Outer Dark. I've now picked up Child of God and am starting into that adventure.

Let me know if you've read Cormac....I'm interested to hear what you think.


P.S. Here's another question for you. What are your thoughts on author blogs, facebook, and all that? I have my own beliefs/opinions, but would like to know what you think about your favorite authors having their own blogs and facebook and twitter accounts.

What is it about these social networking things you like and don't like?

Novel News from Author Cheryl Wyatt

My friend Cheryl Wyatt has worked very hard at the craft of fiction writing and it shows in her new novel, A Soldier's Devotion.

This is the story of U.S. Air Force pararescue jumper Vince Reardon, who was headed off on a lifesaving mission until a too-pretty lawyer crashed her fancy car into his motorcycle—sidelining him for two weeks. Vince could barely accept Valentina Russo's heartfelt apologies. Ever since his brother was wrongly convicted—and killed in prison—Vince has lost respect for lawyers. But wait—is that Val volunteering at his refuge for underprivileged kids? If Vince isn't careful, this lady of the law might just earn his respect...and his heart.
