Our Daughter Has A Secret (and We Can’t Tell You What It Is)
My wife and I can’t say what our younger daughter does for a living. It’s not that it’s hard to describe; it’s that we’re not allowed to say. She might as well work for the CIA (but she doesn’t, although of course I would say that even if she did). What I think I can…Read More
Scott Brick Supports New Writers (Like Me!)
I have previously written about my admiration for Scott Brick, the world’s greatest and most awarded audiobook narrator. And my appreciation that he found the time to create a fantastic audiobook out of my novel, MURDERING LAWYERS. Recently Scott posted a blog on his website www.brickbybrickaudiobooks.com, the first in a series, in which he highlighted…Read More
The Pros and Cons of Almost Dying at the Happiest Place on Earth
I’ve put off writing this post long enough; it’s now been over 6 months since I almost died in Disney World. And no, the root cause was not, as one Australian co-worker guessed, a particularly tall and aggressive Goofy. Or an extra-jerky ride on Space Mountain. Or even (fill in other Disney joke here). I…Read More
Scott Brick Approved This Message!
In my last blog I gushed about how thrilled I was that my narration idol had exceeded my expectations in delivering a consistently entertaining, often exciting audio version of my novel MURDERING LAWYERS (now available for sale on Amazon and Audible!). Since I posted that blog, at least 3 newsworthy things have occurred: 1. I…Read More
(Scott) Brick Kills At Murdering Lawyers!
Lots of people can read (even in 2017!). Fewer can read smoothly aloud (think back to the last time you participated in “responsive reading” in church or temple). But in my humble opinion, only one person can flawlessly perform every nuance of a multi-hundred page book, creating an appropriate sense of underlying menace while still…Read More
“Murdering Lawyers May Slow Down Your iPhone!”
“‘Murdering Lawyers’ May Slow Down Your iPhone” was the message that a friend received recently when trying to download my “MURDERING LAWYERS” mobile app game from the Apple App Store. That’s not something that anyone wants to hear, for at least 2 reasons: 1. speed can be of the essence when one is trying to…Read More
Who Could Say No To Satan After School?
Once again Satan seems to be on a winning streak in our court system. It seems that no one can (legally) say “no” to having an “After School Satan Club” in their place of child learning. Or at least not if they’re one of the nearly 5000 schools that already have a Good News Bible…Read More
USPTO Protects Its Own From Murder
In a previous post, I told the story of Apple’s surprising level of concern for the danger which could be posed to attorneys by my MURDERING LAWYERS mobile app game. It is perhaps less surprising that the staff at the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO, comprised largely of attorneys) has now expressed trepidation about the…Read More
Notwithstanding Misleading Headline, Lots of Demons Still Running Big Law Firms
Imagine how excited I was when a helpful reader forwarded me the link to an article on the AboveTheLaw blog entitled “Which BigLaw Firm Had An Actual Exorcism Performed At Its Office?” (read here)! Naturally my first thought was “great; one down, hundreds to go…” Then imagine my disappointment when I read the article and started to…Read More
MURDERING LAWYERS can be fulfilling and collaborative fun, even on your phone!
Several people asked me to “elaborate” on the trials and tribulations of creating a mobile app game with no prior experience or aptitude. I’m happy to do that, since the experience was fun and creatively rewarding (money to follow), and since I just finished working with my developer to create a kick-ass 15-second promotional…Read More
