Digital Apocalypse

Predictions about the future are notoriously unreliable. People have predicted the demise of almost everything and everyone while others have forecast nirvana in one form or another. Yet, here we are, muddling through.

Author Ewan Morrison offers his take on the ebook revolution which he casts as a digital apocalypse. He argues that every industry from telecommunications to music to porn that has undergone a digital transformation has suffered for it and that books are next. He predicts the end of books and authors as we know them by the next generation.

I have to say his analysis is pretty glum and compelling. I just hope he ends up in the same group of prognosticators who promised us jet packs, flying cars and death rays!
Holy crap! A lot of that stuff came true! Yikes!

Back On The Blog

I haven't posted in almost two weeks because I've been pretty busy working on The Collector, my novella for The Dead Man series, the revisions to my next novel, Stone Cold and getting my third Lou Mason thriller, Cold Truth, ready to launch later this week. Let me know what you think of the Cold Truth cover.

I'll be posting more about these projects but, in the meantime, here's a great way to get your week off to a good start. Check out this Bill Cosby video and I guarantee you'll still be laughing after it's over.

Bucket List Crime Novels

Bucket Lists are a useful reminder not to put off until tomorrow what you can enjoy today. Here's a pretty good one for crime novels to read before you die.

It's a good idea to buy all these books right now and put them on your nightstand if you believe, as I do, that the secret to a long life is to never finish reading all the books you have to read before you die because, if you never finish, then you will live forever!

That's why, when it comes to books, buy early and buy often!
