Author Interview #112: Blow Me by Lennie Ross

September 11, 2012
By

Blow MeOur interview today is with Lennie Ross, author of Blow Me ($9.95), which has 4.6 stars on 17 reviews. Before we get to the interview, here’s a brief description of Blow Me. Author Lennie Ross makes her debut as a Chick Lit novelist with a tale of sex, dating and disappointment in the City of Angels.

Blow Me is the story of three single women—all hovering precariously close to forty, and stuck in a lifestyle that they have long outgrown—who were on a mission to have the perfect life: the amazing career, the baby, the house, the husband. Not having achieved any of their goals, their lives are in complete chaos and their only hope now is to be rescued through marriage or by a Hairy Godfather. Situated in the shallow world of Los Angeles, this provocative novel in the style of Sex and the City provides a humorous, edgy look at aging, dating, and being single in the City of Angels. Blow Me is Lennie’s debut novel and recently won an award for Best New Chick Lit Novel at the 2012 Indie Reader Discovery Awards.

Interview with Lennie Ross

Congratulations on your recent award. Not bad for a first time novelist. How does it feel?

Thank you. It’s pretty unbelievable. I’ve been a writer for a very long time and have always had confidence in my writing, but it is a wonderful feeling to know that my work resonates with my readers. . I’m always so grateful when readers take the time to review my work. Feedback is so important to writers. At least, it’s important to this writer. Receiving the award was a wonderful surprise, and hopefully will help me launch my next novel.

1. What inspired you to write Blow Me?  What do you want readers to takeaway from this novel?

I read a lot of Chick Lit and I find most of it is situated in New York with lead characters that live unrealistically glamorous lives. Read more »

Top 6 Reasons Bounties Are A Good Thing in the NFL

September 10, 2012
By

A guest post by author Stephen Woodfin (visit his blog) or see all of his books.

Top 6 Reasons Bounties Are A Good Thing in the NFL

A few days ago, a three member NFL appeals panel lifted the suspensions of four NFL football players for their alleged participation in a bounty program which would have made cash payments to them for inflicting injuries on targeted players.  NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell had originally issued the suspensions of New Orleans Saints players Jonathan Vilma and Will Smith, Scott Fujita of the Cleveland Browns and free agent Anthony Hargrove as a violation of the “conduct detrimental to the game” rule.

As a rationale for its ruling, the panel gave these justifications.

  1. “NFL fans don’t read Romance novels.”
  2. “It’s time the NFL became more like the NHL.”
  3. “Everybody knows NFL quarterbacks are a bunch of overpaid sissies.”
  4. “We may reconsider our decision if LeBron James makes his much anticipated move to the NFL.”
  5. “All the NFL players have agreed to be nice to each other from now on.”
  6. “These are Saints, not sinners.”

Can you think of some other reasons why bounties are a good thing?

Stephen Woodfin is the author several books including Last One Chosen, The Sickle’s Compass, and Money is Thicker Than Blood. He has served as class counsel in national cases that included millions of people. He is the author of five fast-paced legal thrillers, and hopes these books will not debunk the myth that he actually knows something about the law.

Amazon Unveils $119 Kindle Paperwhite with a Built-in Light

September 9, 2012
By

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos unveiled the $119 Kindle Paperwhite WiFi eReader at a Santa Monica press conference on Thursday. The 3G edition will cost $179.

The Kindle Paperwhite might be a game changer in a variety of different ways.

1) This new Kindle Paperwhite eReader supports a higher resolution and better contrast. This is the first time this readability issue has been addressed in recent models. This will make the Kindle even more enjoyable to read.

2) A built-in light (similar to the most recent Nook). This is probably the best feature. However, it will sure change the booklight market for ereaders.

3) An 8-week battery life even with the battery on. Wow!

This could be a real game changer. People might actually upgrade their old kindles and this looks to be a slick device once it gets into users hands who don’t have Kindle.

Think Well & Prosper: A Critical Thinking GuideYour life and business IQ will increase as you examine and implement the ideas that flow from the distinctions provided in Think Well & Prosper. ~ Dr. R.D. Clarke, DDS

Hello Digital Book Today readers. Think Well & Prosper: A Critical Thinking Guide by Steve Bareham (click to see all of his books or visit his website) is our featured book for today. This book covers the process of thinking and the benefits it has on the outcomes in our life. Remember that thinking is not the same as intelligence. Think Well & Prosper: A Critical Thinking Guide will give you get better outcomes in life by doing the steps of critical thinking before you make a decision. Just in time for students going back to school. Many of the reviews mention that this would be a great process to teach to our children instead of waiting until they are older in life. Think Well & Prosper: A Critical Thinking Guide has been reviewed 4.7 stars on 15 reviews. Let this guide help you in your life and career.

“This is something all parents should teach their kids because it isn’t covered in school and what a tragedy that it’s not. I’m already analyzing my thinking processes more carefully and it does make a difference in the confidence I have in my planning, problem solving and decision making.” ~ Barb Mode, Amazon Reviews

“This book is a great guide for learning critical thinking skills. It’s really got me thinking about thinking and has given me new tools to improve mine!” ~ Danny, Amazon Review

Book Description: Do you want to be happier in life, advance more quickly in your career, and profit more in business? If you answered “yes,” think about how you think, because the way you work your brain holds the key. Do you know how to think critically? Remarkably, few people think about how they think. We tend to focus on thinking outcomes: decisions, plans, conclusions, and judgments. But these are the latter stages of thinking, so the focus is backwards and responsible, in large part, for results that aren’t always optimal.

Think Well & Prosper provides insights into the steps and structure of critical thinking. Read more »
