In today’s OneHeadlightInkbook club suggestions we bring you a collection of actual New Mexico authored novels and a compilation book of anecdotes that we think ought be on store shelves.
Local Attorney Jonathan Miller has not one but five thrillers now available on Amazon.com.
Pick-up one or all five today to get a taste of what the Albuquerque Journal calls “…the next John Grisham.”
Keep-up with the New Mexican Author/Attorney at Law on Facebook here and most of all seek out local talent at every turn – you will find it.
As we did find local wife, mommy and communications conglomerate exec. Lisa Paz. Lisa is every woman, nay every parent. We fell in love with her on a rare night out for the working mom. We found her spectacular, charming and funny – a true inspiration.
Most of us know it yet not all of us talk about it – parenting is hard, especially if you’re doing it right. In the web log of Lisa’s subtly mind-blowing realizations she chronicles all the nutty haps that turn a world upside down at the drop of potty bucket. We’ll go ahead and dub her the next Dave Barry.
Along with her humorous take she reminds us of two very important things:
1. This stuff is hilarious and not for sissies – amateurs need not apply.
2. Other parents can rest assured that they are not alone in their daily absurdities – and it’s all so worth it.
In summation, if you’ve got the luxury of carving out a little time to cuddle-up with a thriller by the fire we say go New Mexican and check out Miller.
And if you find yourself too frazzled to follow several sentences in a row just hit send, send, send on every publishers inbox requesting that our home-town sister gets herself a book deal – because that’s a read you need!
Woefully left off your Sindicator’s published list of must reads is this classic that I believe should be ranked at least number three on the list of most promoted and read books of all time (which are #1 The Bible and #2 [ironically] The Purpose Driven Life).
I’ve made mention here and there of knowing the THREE components to world peace.
Now, for the first time will I declare/suggest the full list:
1. Birth Control
2. Religious Ambiguity
3. The realization/acknowledgment that EVERYONE POOPS!!!
Seriously, here are a few simple applications:
Birth Control ≠ Spencer Pratt, Lindsay Lohan, Jersey Shore progeny
Everyone Poops ≠ Gweneth Paltrow, Victoria Beckham, etc.
Religious Ambiguity + Everyone Poops ≠ War
Birth Control + Religious Ambiguity ≠ Famine, Poverty, Disease
Everyone Poops + Religious Ambiguity ≠ H8
Put a think on the most annoying people/things in your life, recurring problems you face and see for yourself if any combination of your Sindicator’s Three Components of World Peace can work for you and yours.
UPDATE 06/07/10: “HarperCollins announced Monday that it had acquired a “candid” memoir by Demi Moore. The book will cover her life and career and is tentatively scheduled for release in 2012.” – NY Daily News Native New Mexican and genetic freak Demi Moore is set to pen her memoir. America’s first, best cougar, born in Roswell, NM is said to be in talks with New York publishing houses for the rights to her story. So says her agent Luke Janklow. -AP
Tracy Morgan’s I Am The New Black takes you through a basic human interest story where the commonalities between us, not based on race or class, but the simple sense of self that either drives us to succeed or to self-destruct, is all we really have or need to work with to move forward and upward.
Morgan recounts that woes no matter how bleak and triumphs so fleeting are ultimately not wholly defining. It’s a good think, dare I say even inspirational while easily read and entertaining. It’s his story but it’s all our lives that are poised for the sculpting – leaving one but to ask, what will I carve out today?
