“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.”
“It is hard to fail, but it is worse never to have tried to succeed.”
Garrett’s Bones by K. D. Dowdall is a book that will satisfy readers from the young to the, may I say, more experienced and older. Dowdall combines suspense, intrigue, excellent character development, themes of the forest and spirits, along with a well-paced and well-developed plot into a book that resonates with power and beauty.
This novel is both a coming-of-age Bildungsroman and an exploration of themes of good against evil. The main characters, Garrett and Anna, are young and have a complex relationship throughout the book. It is one of the strengths of the novel that Dowdall creates multi-dimensional characters whose hopes and dreams, fears and anxieties, strengths and weaknesses permeate the tale.
Additionally, this book speaks of the supernatural as well as history, love as well as hatred, and life as well as death. I was moved when I read it, and I consider it to be an extraordinary novel. I give it a 5 star, full-hearted, unreserved recommendation! This is a book to be put on everyone’s to-read list!
Garrett’s Bones by K.D. Dowdall will engage your imagination!

In our current political climate, in which the Press has been attacked as somehow against the people, it is important to remember that a free Press was seen by the founders of the United States of America as a crucial element to keeping the nation free. Other thinkers have argued for the maintenance of the free Press as a necessary aspect of battling tyranny and supporting freedom. The Press is one of the institutions that must be preserved if the nation is to remain a free democracy.
One of the writers whose work most clearly illustrated the abuse of power and the effects of the suppression of the Press was George Orwell.
In an example of the use of the free press itself, Teddy Roosevelt said, in an editorial in The Kansas City Star, 1918:
Perhaps the most important words about the Press come from the paramount document for the country: The Constitution of the United States of America, The First Amendment:
I am very excited to say that my horror novel, Maledicus: The Investigative Paranormal Society Book I is now in the humanities library, Linderman Library, at Lehigh University in Bethlehem, PA! This is something for which I am very grateful and deeply satisfied. I have been connected to Lehigh University for many years; I earned my M.A. and Ph.D. degrees in English Literature at this school, and now I teach there as an adjunct professor.
Having my novel included in the new books section is a serious honor, one of which I will be proud for the rest of my life.

Contemporary Fiction from author Rebecca Laclair
Words strung together mean something
Vent into darkness, be held by silence.
I have a few words for you.
Bookish and nerdy
even if hidden behind clouds, a sunbeam will always bring light.
"I live in two worlds; one is a world of books."
A haven and sanctuary for the words that drip from my mind like a faulty tap, to find refuge on blank pages akin to squatters within empty houses.
