“I found myself ‘finding’ ‘creating’ and ‘needing’ time to read.”

Awfully kind praise from novelist and blogger Connie Huddleston:

I needed to read an adult book.  I chose a very good one. I found myself “finding” “creating” and “needing” time to read.  Being an historian, I have studied The Great War, now called World War I; however, that front line horror of war is hard to tell. Griffis brought the story right to me with words that created characters whom I quickly came to enjoy so much I had to read. Set in a military hospital, very near the front line, The Old World is actually the story of a group of about six characters and their existence, their human drama, during the war. The story delivers fear, horror, love,

Antifa: A New KKK for Woke DemocratsToday!

 

LibProgs have gone insane over the realization that half of America voted for the wrong candidate.  This election belonged to the Democrats.  The 1000-year Reich Reign Of Enlightenment was within their grasp.  The Living Constitution would be beaten into compliance with whatever principles (okay, whims) were agitating the Dems at the time.  Smart Science™ would be supreme, with jail time for Climate Change deniers…er, dissenters…ah, hell, call them what they are, heretics.  Journalists would once more return to their rightful places at the seats of power––no, not providing their faces as seat cushions, but it’s not an unreasonable guess.

And history would have been rewritten to reflect higher truths.  From the NYTimes with their trendy “Sex in Communist

I’ve always liked donkeys

Don’t know why.  Maybe it’s something about their faces.  They seem to take life very seriously.

Turns out in Texas (where we moved and are enjoying a great deal), there are places with more donkeys than local forage for them.  Rather than euthanize them, the state allows people to adopt these donkeys.  Basically, you are fostering the donkey on your land.

Since I hate the idea of animals suffering (see my first By the Hands of Men novel for more on that)…

 

…once we get some good green East Texas acreage, I plan on adopting.  Since they’re herd animals, it would be cruel to only have one, and so there are two donkeys in my future.

I’m going to …

Along with everything else…

With the impending release of “The Broken Return, Book 3 of The Lonesome George Chronicles,” (and Book One “The Big Bang” is on sale for 99 cents)

and a recent move to Texas…

…I’ve been lagging on updating my faithful fans with details of my doin’s.

Along with everything else (and I haven’t even mentioned the 80-year-old historic home we’re renovating or “Ringside at the Circus of the Fallen” (working title of “Book Four of my By the Hands of Men” series), I did manage to sneak in a radio interview with The Writer’s Block, out of Los Angeles. The fellas were damn kind, and had this to say:

Thursday’s interview with writer, Roy Griffis, (Griff to his

“The Broken Return”- Book Three of The Lonesome George Chronicles

The Broken Return

Book 3 of The Lonesome George Chronicles

"The Broken Return." Now available at Amazon

The story picks up right where Book 2 ended, following the leaders of the rising Resistance as they struggle to survive in what remains of a USA shattered by nuclear attack and a Jihadist invasion in the last year of George W. Bush’s presidency.

In the Arizona desert, Whistler and his tiny band of isolated fighters link up with other patriots to attack the soldiers of the Caliphate.

In Washington, congressional aides Karen and Kevin watch as an unelected government arises on the ashes of the old one and makes a secret deal with America’s enemies.

And, in California, ex-media celebrities Molly Ivins and Alec Baldwin find the will to …

Unpacking Protest Privilege

No one must stand for the anthem. Or salute the flag. Or put hand over heart. Some people consider those respectful actions.

If somebody wants to make a statement, so be it, because, you know, there’s that wacky First Amendment that protects it.

(Hey, can we go all Antifa and make disrespecting the flag “Hate Speech?”

Image result for Anti-hate speech protesters

If we do that, we’ll get all kinds of support from our betters, since Hate Speech is banned in the First Amendment…I jest, I jest…)

But if you have religious convictions against gay marriage? BAKE THE CAKE.

Do you belong to a religion that opposes birth control and abortion? YOU HAVE TO PAY FOR IT ANYWAY.

(that is, until you’ve burned …

The battle for America rages deep in the heart of Texas and from sea to shining sea, as citizens from all walks of life fight against both the invaders and the collaborators in Bringing the Fire.

Bush, who is trapped in the darkness of a protected bunker as communications with the outside slowly fail.  Determined to serve his country to the last, he undertakes a dangerous escape from the safety of the bunker.  Loyalties are tested and people die as the last elected President of the United States races to save what is …
