October 2014 Is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month
Domestic violence has generated enormous press with the NFL the last few weeks. However domestic violence is not limited to over paid athletes. Domestic violence plagues ordinary people, every single day. I am offering the Kindle version of Mommy's Black Eye FREE from October 1st to October 5th to promote awareness of domestic violence.

Caught In The Crossfire by David Drake
A selection of short stories that feature Hammer’s Slammers, the most celebrated mercenary tank outfit in military science fiction.
I generally don’t read books of short stories. I always make exceptions for my favorite authors. David Drake always entertains and frequently causes poignant reflection. Military scifi sounds as if it is just a literary rendition of the first person shooter video games. Drake paints characters that are not always likeable but they are almost always memorable. Slick Des Grieux is a tanker that you would love to have in front of you, definitely wouldn’t want behind you and covering your back wouldn’t be an option. However if you want to define the meaning of hell for the opposing forces, his name would be synonymous with the devil. A memorable and highly un-likeable character, Slick is just one of Drake’s creations. .
I recommend the book.
