Highlights

If anyone reads off a Kindle or a Kindle app, have you noticed the dotted underline? Granted, I'm pretty oblivious once I'm in a story but noticing it the other day reminded me of the things I enjoy seeing from a reader. I am always so elated once I am able to see a reader [...]

Take a moment and think about the following story. This is Jeffrey - He was born with a rare disease, called Dog Ear Disorder. Normally, these abnormalities occur internally from book to book. But Jeffrey was born out of the shipping box this way. It's a crease formed went a page (or in this case, [...]

This Thursday's showcase features a blogger that always makes me take a step back and chuckle. InsidetheLifeofMoi covers a range of topics from the Man Flu to Facebook Pet Peeves. She's interesting to say the least and her applicable stories always provide whimsical imagery along the way. I don't know a lot personally about this [...]

This traditional Thursday, I am actually providing a two-for-one. Ryan Attard is a writer, blogger and podcaster I have come to enjoy. He has humor I can enjoy and make sure to strap in tight during podcasts as the topics come up from anywhere his mind chooses to travel. Humor is never far away, so give him a listen and follow him. His podcast in this blog is an interview with another author, Sorin Suciu who is equally hilarious. Thank me later.

Today I interview humor fantasy author Sorin Suciu, so prepare to have your mind blow and your funny-bone tickled.

This guy is one of the funniest authors out there. He’s a true artist and something of a reclusive genius, and I’ve had the pleasure of being introduced to his debut novel The Scriptlings, when my manager dumped the novel in my inbox and asked for my opinion.

Here’s what I told him: “Holy shit . . . hahahahaha . . . This is so cool . . . hahahaha . . . who is this guy? Hahahaha . . . I need to pee.”

I may be paraphrasing.

This interview went smooth and sailing, and I’ve been willing to talk to this guy since the inception of the show.

Here’s a rundown of what I blab about:

– Me and my problems, then I ask you to go buy…

I know, it’s not Thursday, but I missed last week and we will be waiting on a new story a little while longer. So, it’s double-up week! This week, I am pleased to share this blog by Erin Lyon. I’ve read through her posts and I always come back feeling better about myself whether through her humor or some of her self-depreciating stories. Kind of the macabre sense of humor I carry with me at times. Strangely, I think she’d do the same. Go check her blog out, now! Thank me later.

So, the connoisseur of poor decision-making thing.  People continually seem to get a chuckle out of that line.  But a connoisseur?  Really?  Since I’m a fan of dictionaries (and had to look it up anyway to see if I’d spelled it correctly), here you go:

con·nois·seur
ˌkänəˈsər,-ˈso͝or/
noun
: a person who knows a lot about something: an expert in a particular subject

I would say I qualify.  Clearly, since I am not dead or in prison, I can laugh about most of my poor decisions. And, because I enjoy humor at my own expense, here is a sampling, in no particular order:

  1. 1993 – At 20 years old, deciding to drive to Vegas to marry a guy I’d only known for 6 months…because it seemed like a good idea at the time. (Yes, I know that I said “in no particular order” and that sure as hell seems like it would be “Number…
