Americans’ appetite for reading books — ones you actually hold in your hands — has not slowed in recent years, says a Pew Research Center survey.
Latest from my new book over on my Author blog
in this excerpt, Tony is given some monumental news…
I was normally out after school, either on the sports field or spending time with Ruby, but I remember I came home straight after the school bell one day because Dad had told me they wanted to discuss something. I don’t recall being particularly apprehensive, we had talked a lot about what I would do after school, and assumed it was going to be another one of those discussions.
But when I got to the house I saw mother’s car outside, with Mother in it. She told me, in a very clipped voice, that Ben was already inside and that I should hurry. I went in to find the 3 of them, Dad, Mrs. KMcKinley and Ben all sitting round the kitchen table. “ I won’t beat around the bush,” Dad said, “ but I wanted you both to hear the…

A week or so ago I started to get emails from my success plan online – supposedly from “real people” but the fact that they all say EXACTLY the same story makes it just so incredibly obvious that it’s spam. I am reporting them all, but, just in case any of my readers fell they might be real, here is what they say:

Around Half a year ago my better half lost his job and it turned our world upside down.
I became so fearful and didn’t know what we would do in order to generate an income. We were

My personal entire world appeared to be coming crashing right down and it was splitting my heart
just visualizing how we were going to care for my lovely little girl.
Just as I was at my smallest point I got this e-mail. I basically believed

video clips and acknowledging it did not cost any money to start I chose to give it a try.
Within my very first 7 days I produced $688. The very next few days I produced an additional
$895. We could not believe it. This was real money into my bank account
and my life began to change. Inside a few months I started off earning more money
in a single full week than my better half earned in a full four week period. And i’m
able to do everything in the house.
In order to learn how I performed this simply just check out the web page listed below.
I have received 71 emails from people who all are the “senior writer” at this company, all of them stay at home mothers and all of their husbands lost their jobs 6 months ago. All of them.
I mean, if you have to spam, maybe you could try something different, to make it at least a bit believable. OK I just ghad to rant for a bit, your regularly scheduled programs will now continue.
