Quotations On Justice

“Few will have the greatness to bend history itself, but each of us can work to change a small portion of events. It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.”

                                                                   Robert F. Kennedy

“No man is justified in doing evil on the ground of expediency.”

                                                                Theodore Roosevelt

“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny.”

                                                                Martin Luther King, Jr.

“In a democracy, justice must apply to the most powerful as well as the weakest among us. If it does not, then the experiment in democracy that is the United States of America will fail.”

                                                                Charles F. French

Who Is Your Favorite Fictional Villain?

Standard

In continuing my series of favorite characters from books, I wanted today to explore fictional villains, those people we love to hate or who capture our imagination.  They sometimes make us quake in fear and wonder about the darkness.

There are so many wonderfully written villains to draw from that the choice of my favorite is difficult. Among the many possibilities are Sauron from J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord Of The Rings, Dracula from Bram Stoker’s novel, Dr. Hannibel Lechter from Thomas Harris’ The Silence Of The Lambs, and Claudius from Shakespeare’s Hamlet. As I mentioned, there are many other possibilities. Would it be immodest to suggest my own character Maledicus from my novel Maledicus The Investigative Paranormal Society Book 1?

My choice, however, is from the book that is one of the largest influences on me as a reader and writer, and that is Dracula!

So, I ask all of you: who is your favorite fictional villain?

“This book was well written. I enjoyed the characters and didn’t want to put it down. I had to see how it would end. Loved the theme of the book! Buy it and you won’t regret it…you may want to get the second book (Gallows Hill) right away too! I haven’t read it yet but if you’re like me you will want to read on as quickly as possible!”

(http://hdcoolwallpapers.com)

It is now almost Winter, and it is time once again for a book promotion party!

I want to offer an opportunity for all writers who follow this blog to share information on their books. It can be very difficult to generate publicity for our writing, so I thought this little effort might help. All books may be mentioned, and there is no restriction on genre. This encompasses fiction, poetry, plays, and non-fiction. If I have neglected to mention a genre, please consider it to be included.

To participate, simply give your name, your book, information about it, and where to purchase it in the comments section. Then please be willing to reblog and/or tweet this post. The more people that see it, the more publicity we can generate for everyone’s books. I will continue to do these parties every few weeks.

Thank you for participating!

Promote your books!

Spread the word!

Keep on writing!

Unofficial World Book Lovers Week!

Standard

Since books are so much a part of my life–I read them, teach them, and write them, that I have decided, without any authority, of course, I am declaring the entire week of 11/15/2019 — 11/21/2019 to  be the unofficial holiday of World Book Lovers Week!

Let us embrace the week as a period of declaring to the world that we love books! And why shouldn’t we declare holidays on our own? Let us show the world how important books–all books, of any kind–are!

If you are with me on this idea, please spread the word!

I love books!
