Howell © 2017 So, with nothing better to do, I figure I’ll stop at Jerry’s place and grab a couple of drinks and a burger. Usually, I don’t go there on Saturday night since there’s a crapload of amateurs taking up what would be considered prime space. I figure since this is a Friday and close to Saturday, it may be packed, but not as crazy as Saturday. It’s the kind of place where everyone minds their business. They’re there for a good time and will likely not notice me. Even so, I go through the door, stop, and have a look around, trying not to make eye contact. I hope…

Yates INTRODUCTION During a 27-year career with the Chicago Tribune, much of it as a foreign correspondent in Asia and Latin America, I encountered my share of remarkable and unforgettable stories. Some came out of the horrendous suffering I witnessed while covering the wars in Vietnam, Cambodia, and Afghanistan. Others were generated by the bloody revolutions in Guatemala and El Salvador. Still others sprang from the wrenching political upheavals I reported on in places like The Philippines, Brazil, China and South Korea. But there is one story in my journalistic career that I treasure above all the others. That is the story of a Japanese-American woman named…

Wet hair plastered to my head, gasping, I propel myself toward my target. The 136 bus. My heel catches on a crack in the pavement. My ankle twists sideways, sending a sharp pain up my leg. Wincing, I hobble towards the stop, just as the bus closes its doors and pulls away. “Ahhh,” I scream in frustration. “Here, use my umbrella.” His voice startles me. I was so focused on catching the bus, I never noticed him until now. I must have had a serious case of tunnel vision, because he stands out a mile with his cornflower blue, spiky hair. He holds…

#RRBC August Spotlight Author – Carol Marrs Phipps
#RRBC , #RRBCSpotlightAuthor , Book Tour / August 5, 2017

It is with great pleasure ROOM WITH BOOKS introduces CAROL MARRS PHIPPS the RAVE REVIEWS BOOK CLUB “Spotlight Author“ for the month of August! What inspired the writing of Wham! Timewalker, Book 1 of the Timewalker Series? I’d have to say, this most recent series, Timewalker, was inspired by a combination of  current world political affairs, and the increasingly insane agricultural practices being carried out today, which not only poisons the food we eat, but also the land, the waterways and the very air we breathe. How sad that in “our new world order” the air in the cities, polluted by exhaust fumes and factory emissions, is cleaner and safer than what used to be fresh country air. Enough said, it is not my intention to get on my soapbox and preach to you here, but rather, to set the background for the series. Wham is the first book of a planned dystopian/scifi-fantasy/time-travel trilogy called Timewalker. It takes place in the 21st century. This world is populated by a number of races including humans, trolls elves, fairies and even the occasional dragon. The world is controlled by a new world government, but the location of the capitol and the potentate…

The Benefits of Attending a Virtual Writers’ Conference & Book Expo – at least an #RRBC one… Reblogged from #RRBC Writers’ Conference& Book Expo Conference News & Blog , written by Nonnie Jules. You’re a writer.  You realize that there is a lot for you to learn to become a great writer…heck, even a good writer.  You’ve heard about writers’ conferences but you’ve no time to attend, you’ve no money to spare, and most of them are just too darned far.  You’ve heard that they are wonderful, though, and you’d really like to see what they’re all about, so, what do you do? Well, there is such a thing as a virtual writing conference, and below I’m going to share with you some of the benefits of attending an RRBC writers’ conference & book expo. *A virtual conference allows you to attend from the comfort of your own (living room, bedroom, bathroom, your car trunk, Starbuck’s, etc…). Writers’ conferences and book expos come a dime a dozen.  I mean…just like churches and liquor stores, there’s one around every corner.  But, with the busy lives that we lead, we often find it difficult to get away to one, so the next best thing is to…
