The Decalogue-my review

Quite interesting and I'm having a hard time putting this book down in fact. Its kind of surprising for me as I don't normally read crime investigation novels. I'm finding it very well written and very entertaining.

It does mention in the book that the main investigator (Priest) has OCD. I wouldn't think that it would be an issue as it would be an asset. Its part of what I think makes him a great investigator as he's putting the pieces together.

The story behind The Sea Witch

Who I am: I live in Colorado Springs, Colorado with my wife, Brandy. We've been married 7 wonderful years as of May. I'm so glad that she is a part of my life, can't say that I could do better for a wife.

There is a definite story behind why I wrote the book, The Sea Witch.

My main character, Timothy, was a wife beater when I opened the story. After a bit of time and his considering why that he no longer had a wife he came to few decisions. One of those was to take off in a completely different direction from then on. Just because you've been doing something doesn't mean that you have to keep doing it.

In too many places, women are abused still in the present day. I really wanted to do something about it, something that would help address the issue.

Two of my guiding principle's are:

1. A man should never, ever hit a woman.

2. A man should treat a woman with respect.

I've been through some major changes over the years myself that led me to the point where I am now. In 2002, my first wife passed away next to me in her sleep. When I awoke is when I found out which was an extreme shock for me. I went through an awakening after that, totally changed my course in life. This has led me to the point where I am now an author.

Another writing experiment

I don't know what I'll do with it but I tried a little more experimentation today.

Jason was peering into the PC case at the parts he just replaced. His unkempt short hair was askew at strange angles from the top of his head. Plugging in the power cord he made sure that he could hear the power supply fan begin to whir softly for the couple of moments.

"Okay, let's see what you can do", Jason said to the formerly dead machine. Double-checking the wiring first by pulling them to the sides to see better. Satisfied that all was right he hit the power button on the front of the case. The little fan on the processor caught and began spinning.

Now he turned his attention to the monitor to watch the boot up sequence as it progressed. Absent-mindedly, he ran his hands through his hair and contributed to making his hair even more askew than it already was.

When the boot sequence reached the operating system screen he turned from the screen and grabbed the cover for the case. He began to put it on to protect the electronics when he noticed some little moving lights inside. A look of puzzlement and a frown began to be displayed by Jason as he leaned closer in to see better.

More and more of the little lights began to appear inside the computer case. Still befuddled, he dropped the cover to the side on the bench. "What in the hell is happening with you?" Jason asked the computer.

Some of the lights began to escape the case and were shooting past Jason. He turned quickly trying to follow a few of them along to where they were going. He was too slow though and more darted on by. Then, a couple of the lights hit him and he felt like he was stretching one way and then the other.

Another couple of the lights entered him and his vision began to shift and warp. All of his body began to feel different as the room began to fade away. All of the lights became larger as were the parts in the computer case. The lights became clearer to his vision unlike the computer parts which also became faded and less solid.

Fart Tart Freddy by Eric Deckard

Enjoy this look at the idea behind the book of a fellow author.

I came up with my children's book idea first off because i wanted to promote a candy im trying to bring to market called Fart Tarts. A candy similier to pez but the candy comes out the butt. So i developed a whole story about these Fartin Martians from outerspace that live in the city of Flatulantis.I made the story extremely funny butt i also wanted a moral to the story so kids can be entertained as well as inspired! In my debut book Mean Methane Mikes bullying becomes worse than Rebecca Rotton Bottoms farts in class. It's up to the least powerful Fartin Martian Fart Tart Freddy to stand up Mean Methane Mike. Can he overcome his insecurties and realize it's not the size of your farts but the size of your heart or does he get blown away... Please check out my new book at you will be blown away pun intended , laugh so hard you'll make co co pebbles in your pants, and inspired never to give up.

Thanks Sincerely Eric Deckard

Excerpt from the book:" Will i dont feel lucky." Fart Tart Freddy shrugged staring across pooper pond. " At least you dont get picked on everday at school." He muttered.

Hey, it’s not easy being overweight. I get picked on too.

Sometimes I don’t even feel like going to school,” said Bubble Butt Brandon.

“Wow!” Freddy thought. “That’s how I feel every day.” Freddy worried all of the time what Methane Mike would say or do to him next. “At least you’re not barely a one on the Fart Chart,” said Freddy.

“That doesn’t mean I’m not bothered when people crack jokes about my weight.”

“Yeah getting made fun of stinks!” said Freddy.

“Yeah more than Rebecca Rotten Bottoms’ fart in class today,” replied Brandon with a grimace.

“Yuck!” Freddy blurted, and they both busted up laughing.
