We have SIDING!!! YAY! The carpenters have replaced the plastic sheet that was covering up the burnt side of the house. What a relief that is. I spent a lot of time worrying about critters and sharks getting into the house through the large opening. Yes, I said sharks. They are jerks and will find a way. I am not sure where I got such an extreme hatred for sharks. I have toyed with the idea of being hypnotized to see if I had a bad experience in a past life with one. I don’t have any shark bite marks now, so I would assume it would have to have happened in a past life. Although, would I want to relive that experience just to find out why I hate sharks so much? Or should I just be satisfied with hating shark? Ya.. I will take the second one. Truth be told… and you guys tell no one, ya hear!!?? I know that sharks play an important role in the ocean and should be protected. There… I said it. I still hate them though. Anyway… we have siding on the house again and I am happy.

Life always brings unexpected gifts. But no one had foreseen such a deadly surprise. Is this the end of London?

Iranian Air Force Commander Major General Safawi is urgently summoned by the President of the Islamic Republic of Iran. “I have decided to send the heretic British nation a gift, or to be precise, a nuclear gift”.

Lieutenant Colonel Kabadi, a brilliant operations officer with a stellar reputation, is appointed to plot and carry out the mission. Kabadi puts together an elite team which plans and executes the President’s order.

On the day of the operation, the charge does indeed arrive in the outskirts of London, but the secret is uncovered. Within minutes, rumors of an undercover Iranian operation spread throughout the city, and eight million residents try to flee in panic, unleashing violent riots and causing many casualties.

With fear and chaos in the streets of London reaching a peak, only a miracle can save the city. Unfortunately, even the best of the British security forces seems doomed to fail. Is a new era in the making?

David Yaron, an intelligence Lieutenant-Colonel (Ret), weaves a thrilling, sophisticated story, which appears utterly realistic. Yaron’s writing, while minimalist, is full of details that only a military expert can recount, keeping the reader in constant suspense.

Death Has a Brand New Appetite…

When overweight treadmill salesman Reginald Baskin finally meets a co-worker who doesn’t make fun of him, it’s his own bad luck that tech guy Maurice turns out to be a two thousand-year-old vampire.

But as Reginald struggles with the downsides of being a fat vampire (too slow to catch people to feed on, mocked by those he tries to glamour, assaulted by his intended prey and left for undead), he discovers rare powers in himself that few vampires have… and just in time, because the Vampire Council wants him destroyed as an inferior representative of their race.
