Late entry today because I stayed up late... watching "The ABC Murders" on Amazon. I had read the book... oh, 40 some years ago and remembered it well. Writing a mystery is really all about misdirection. There is a murder and you provide a number of alternative suspects with enough clues to make you think they're guilty, all the while dangling the real killer in front of the reader's eyes. Agatha Christie did this very well. This is why they still make movies and TV series out of her books today.
My name will never be as famous as hers, which is fine with me. There was an issue with Amazon, however in regard to my name. Hat's off to Sixpence for pointing this out to me. You see, I am not the only Dave Snyder who is an author publishing on Amazon. I have a very common name. At one point there were actually 17 Dave Snyders in the Harrisburg phone book, 3 of them living in East Pennsboro (Enola) alone. When you initially set up your author's page, you type in your name and a list of authors comes up and he chose the wrong Dave Snyder. This does not effect the royalties, but it does list me as being the author of his books which is a problem since I write mystery, suspense novels with gay characters and he writes faith based fantasy... well, I don't really know if they're fantasies but they are faith based, with titles like The Road To Sodom and Managing the Fold.

Definitely not something I would write. Anyway, Amazon is fixing the problem for good. I was told my titles might disappear for 1 - 3 days, but then they will be back.
And I guess we're going to have tariffs on products coming from Mexico. I suspect that till all is said and done, the Idiot Jerk will end up crashing the world's economy.
Also, from what I saw yesterday, polls do not look good for him getting his orange ass re-elected. Biden has a double digit lead in states the Idiot Jerk needs to win. In fact, states like Texas, which swallowed his shit in 2016, are now questionable... that's right, questionable. The simple truth is Americans don't want a moral degenerate in the White House. Conservatives are going to get their asses whupped.
I quite like the series "Death in Paradise", as it features a "bumbling" detective who always gets it right in the end - à la Hercule Poirot. And tariffs on goods from Mexico (and China),who would have guessed that would happen! Sounds like a really good reelection gambit!ReplyDelete
I will have to check out the series.ReplyDelete
Conservatives are going to suffer a real butt whipping.
I only hope that those Blue Voters who may not care for Joe, vote for Joe if he's the nominee.ReplyDelete
I can't have a repeat of 2016, or else I'll be moving.
Oh, they'll vote for him. They now know the alternative is so much horribly worse.Delete
I will vote for whomever the D nominee is in 2020, even if it's cap'n crunch!ReplyDelete
So will everybody else... except the conservatives.Delete
Dems have to vote for whomever the candidate is. Period. Or we’re gonna have more of the dotard.ReplyDelete
Glad you solved the problem with the page! So glad you didn’t write those funny little books! The road to sodom? Well, he should know.
Yeah, they were crazy christian tracts. They provided me with a link to his page and there's absolutely no information about him.Delete
Believe me, the dotard will be gone.
