Anyone interested in a great Summer read? The action is non-stop and characters are very colorful - Brooklyn, New York.
Albert Ruddy read and loved it. He win two Acsdemy Awards for Executive Producer of The Godfather and Million Dollar Baby.
The book is "Johnny Bad Ass " by me, the biglefthook.

My novel Stir It Up: The CIA Targets Jamaica, Bob Marley and the Progressive Manley Government is recently out on Amazon. Highly praised by Roger Steffens, founding chair of the Reggae Grammy Committee but no reader reviews up yet. Who will be the first?

Lawman by Virginia Llorca
If you lost your husband in the line of duty, would you take a chance on another lawman? Maybe it is what you are used to. Maybe you think it is not worth the trouble to get involved just to end up alone, no matter how much you love each other.
Lily falls in love, but won’t commit to someone in a dangerous job, someone who puts his duty to his country before his family. Forget what Shakespeare says about honor. Go defend your nation, but leave me out of it.
How would you choose? Would it be worth your while to have those few precious moments of happiness? Tim is not going to wait for her to decide. He is always in command.
Could you stand up to him?
Lawman by Virginia Llorca is a fast-paced racy modern love story that will keep you wondering whose side you are on. Lily will certainly try your patience. It is available for electronic readers at Amazon, free to borrow with no due dates at any time.
Free download from 7/31/12 through 8/04/12

Many people ask me how I use life experiences in my writing. The answer is MANY WAYS. I recently edited my mother's memoir CAN WE COME IN AND LAUGH, TOO? That is a true memoir. The short stories in my book THE MAFIA FUNERAL AND OTHER SHORT STORIES are a mix of true, based on true story, inspired by true story and fiction with scenes inspired by true stories. Then there is plain fiction.
Writer's have great license when it comes to how they tell their stories. The just released WHO'S GOT THE MONEY? is pure fiction, but it was inspired by true experiences and CONFESSIONS OF A COUGAR, to be released in September, is what's called "creative non-fiction." Mostly true with a few embellishments.
If you are a writer, do you work in all, most or some of these generes? Writers and readers...which do enjoy reading the most?

Do you really know how you would handle it? Are you sure? What would you do—what could you do if your first love, the guy that taught you everything about love came back into your life? What if he never really left? You married someone else, you have kids, you made the good and moral decision to be faithful, to move on. But this guy is always there for you when you need him the most, and he is so deeply embedded in your heart and soul, there is no saying no. Can you love two people with complete passion? Do you feel something must be missing somewhere? Maybe not. Sacred Sin, by Virginia Llorca a modern, racy love story lets you decide what is right or wrong, because Jenny can’t.

Please let me know what you think :-)

Agree with the Sherlock comments. The BBC series is overhyped. Solid acting, bad translation of Conan Doyle. You can take that from an Irregular.

@ Tammi - i read the original Sherlock Holmes stories when i was a kid and got back to them after i streamed the Jeremy Brett series. I do not like the new 'Sherlock' at all as a Sherlock Holmes show. As a mystery series set in modern day London it is okay but when i watch it i just don't believe whoever wrote it ever read Sherlock Holmes stories.
