Book Review: How to Sue a Telemarketer by Stephen L. Ostrow, Esq.
4 Stars , Non-Fiction / September 27, 2010

(and  his alter ego, comedian Ozmo Kramer) is exactly what it sounds like, a non-fiction manual to navigate the courts when you decide to sue telemarketers for disturbing dinner, sleep or any other part of your free time.  I have heard that you can get $500 for every annoying call, but it’s not as simple as filling out a form.  This book shows you the basic steps ...

Wow, I wish I had to funds to buy every $12.99 eBook I wanted – good...

Opinion / September 19, 2010

Recently I’ve had some very interesting conversation via email with author Irene Ziegler (Rules of the Lake, Ashes to Water, ). I’ve left a comment on her blog and she contacted me by email asking for an expansion on my thoughts which, as an opinionated person, I was happy to oblige. The conversation, which is nothing more than some preliminary thoughts and a bit of venting about cost of eBooks, was very interesting and engaging. I...
