Sparks in the Wind by Shirley Meier
With great joy, I want to announce the re-release of Shirley Meier’s book, Sparks in the Wind.
I had a lot of fun editing the book. I also came to love the characters. Shirley has written a book which is exciting, uplifting, and well, incredible. But rather than believing me, why don’t you read it yourself?
Sparks is currently available as an ebook from:
Barnes and Noble
We are working on getting Sparks into the Sony and Diesel stores as well, and if there is enough requests, we’ll look at going to a print run.
Now I’m editing The Clarion by Michael Badillo. A long with writing a half dozen more short stories

Danger – Microsoft Inside
Ever wonder why Microsoft has historically been so bad at crushing bugs? I think I know why.
Me and my junior editor, Kleopatra
Kleopatra and I have been laughing ourselves silly. Everybody got the Apple announcements from Tuesday September 10, 2013 wrong.
Not just wrong, DEAD WRONG.
Like a lot of people, I’ve been following the NSA Spying Scandal closely. In fact, I’ve been following it for several years, since before I first ran into Barrett Brown. Seriously. The leaks about go back a long way, and most writers appear to have missed the implications.

Vic Toews, MP for the riding of Provencher, has handed in his resignation both as Public Safety Minister, and as Member of Parliament.
A couple of days ago I wrote about Ballmer’s impending retirement. One of the points I made is that Ballmer appears of have made the choice, that he isn’t being pushed out. A lot of writers have effectively written Ballmer off as a spent force at Microsoft.
Then Microsoft buys Nokia’s handset division…
Ever see those ads – SPEED UP YOUR PC NOW!
Ever take a close look at them?
Compare the image with the Blonde model too
The image with the Brunette model. Being models, they are pretty. But…
This ad is aimed at Windows users, and the women are using Macs. Due to the small size of the images, it is hard to be certain, but the Windows 8 Desktop doesn’t seem to line up properly with the physical screen.
You think they’d at least pick a Dell or HP computer for the ad, wouldn’t you? Would you really trust someone that can’t even use the correct computer in an ad? I wouldn’t.
