Review Of Momnesia From A Testosteronic Point Of View: I’m going to admit right up front that, for a very long time, I’ve avoided books by women authors. Before you light the torches and round up the mob, let me add that the reason was, because I read almost exclusively for pleasure and escape, I found that books by women writers were too… well, nuanced. I’m looking for things to move along and not linger so much on the touchy-feely stuff. Okay, I’m generalizing but you get the idea. Nothing against women per-se, Lord knows, I just wanted a bit more testosterone in my reading material. I was perfectly happy with this approach until I met author Kathy Reichs a few years ago and spent a little time with her and her husband Paul on a...

Southern Ideal Home Show in Raleigh September 21-23

Southern Ideal Home Show in Raleigh September 21-23

  Yep, there was yet another home improvement-oriented show in Raleigh, this one at the NC State Fairgrounds. There are at least four of these shows each year, and it gets tougher each time for me to differentiate among them. But I’m not disparaging them because I still show up at every one, Lord knows, as do a lot of people. And these shows must be productive for the exhibitors because I saw many of the same companies that were downtown two weeks ago at the Home, Hot Tub et cetera Show. This Southern Ideal show at the Fairgrounds was bigger than that one – I counted nearly two hundred-sixty spaces in the Graham Building and over one hundred-forty in the Exposition Center.   There were the usual cooking demonstrations, wine tastings (Duplin...

Author on Tour, New Release!

You may recall a while back, when I posted about my experience visiting the Southern Women’s Show. It was there that I met Lori Verni-Fogarsi, author of “Momnesia.” A few months later I actually reviewed the book, which is contemporary women’s fiction (not my usual reading genre). My Review of “Momnesia” From a Testosteronic Point of View. Since our initial acquaintance, I’ve gotten to know Lori a bit more and am now participating in her Online Blog Tour for her new novel, “Unexpecting.” Read on, and don’t forget to enter to win a free copy of her book, (below) as well as checking out all of the other festivities she’s got going on!
