Check back from time-to-time leading up to Father's Day as I am revising it nearly daily.

Grieving the Loss of a Child On Father's Day This is the first Father's Day since the Newtown school massacre and with all of the natural tragedies since then, as well as the ones we don't hear about through cancer, car accidents and the like, we have plenty of fathers (and mothers) grieving the loss of their child on this day.

a story about the power of the tongue and the need to control it

Amazon book summary:  Nothing ever happens in the small town of Marlo . . . until the residents begin seeing their private conversations posted online for everyone to read. Then it’s neighbor against neighbor, friend against friend, as paranoia and violence escalate. The police scramble to identify the person responsible for the posts and pull the plug on the Website before it destroys the town. But what responsibility do the people of the town have for the words they say when they think no one is listening? Life and death are in the power of the tongue.

The Negotiator
by Dee Henderson-- romantic mystery  -- free on the Kindle for a limited time (still on 06/15)
The vast majority of nearly 300 reviewers give this a 4 or 5 out of 5 stars
(Dads, you can read this yourself -- one male reviewer admitted to loving it!  Or, you can give it to one of your daughters and continue being a great dad :)
