Time is Irreverent 2, the audiobook

Time is Irreverent 2, the audiobook

Audiobooks are wonderful, but they’re time consuming to produce. I’m currently working with Nate C. Maughan, the great narrator for my new novel, Time Is Irreverent 2: Jesus Christ, Not Again! I know a lot of authors do their own narration, but I don’t do multiple voices, and I think audiobooks should be performances, not […]

Malaysian feather snake?

Malaysian feather snake?

Marty’s photo of the day #2806: Any guess what you are looking at? Is it a Malaysian feather snake? Is it an Arctic pipe cleaner fish? Is it the Great Salt Lake monster? ˙ʇɔɐɟ ɐ pɹɐǝɥ ʇsnɾ ʇɐɥʇ uɐʍs ɹǝʇ-ʇı-dɯnɹʇ ɐ s,ʇı :ɹǝʍsuɐ

Escape from Al-dog-atraz!

Escape from Al-dog-atraz!

Marty’s photo of the day #2805: Al-dog-atraz is back! Lucy is 15 years old, and we got her at the Humane Association 13 years ago. The reason her original owners abandoned her became obvious the first time we left her alone. We came home to a house totally destroyed. Every interior screen was shredded, blood […]

#10 and #11 on Amazon

#10 and #11 on Amazon

Last night the stars aligned, and Time Is Irreverent and Time Is Irreverent 2: Jesus Christ, Not Again! were #10 and #11 on Amazon in Political Humor. Now, of course, I have the new goal of hitting #1 and #2 at the same time. When the reviews and the magazine articles start coming in for […]

Bringing home dinner

Bringing home dinner

Marty’s photo of the day #2803: This is kind of a strange photo until you know what you’re looking at. It’s a coyote with her kill, crossing a road on Antelope Island, in Utah.

Laughing in the ICU waiting room

Laughing in the ICU waiting room

It’s way too early to know if my new novel, Time Is Irreverent 2: Jesus Christ, Not Again! will be a sales success, but this morning I received the nicest email from a woman in Sweden. She had been in the intensive care waiting room at a hospital, while her mother was having heart surgery. […]

A baby long-eared owl . . . awwww!

A baby long-eared owl . . . awwww!

Marty’s photo of the day #2802: For all those looking forward to spring, here’s a photo I took a few springs ago—a baby long-eared owl. Awwww!

If you really, really, have to pee. . . .

If you really, really, have to pee. . . .

Marty’s photo of the day #2801: This was the best sign I saw while visiting Italy. If you really, really, really have to pee—push here!

Caught in quick-mud!

Caught in quick-mud!

Marty’s photo of the day #2800: Years ago, on the first day of my first trip to the Amazon Rainforest, I learned the hard way to be careful where I stepped. I thought the mud along the Amazon River bank was hard enough to walk on. Instead, it was virtual quicksand—or more accurately, quick-mud. Nancy […]

Nancy’s new chair

Nancy’s new chair

Marty’s photo of the day #2799: When I was in Venice, Italy this past December, I saw this great chair in a shop window. I think Nancy Pelosi should sit in it for Trump’s next State of the Union Address!

Marty’s photo of the day #2798: Mangrove crab, photographed in Costa Rica.

Jesus would not approve!

Jesus would not approve!

News broke today that Republicans in South Carolina have introduced legislation that would make abortion in their state a felony for both women and their doctors. What would Jesus think of that? In my new novel, Time Is Irreverent 2: Jesus Christ, Not Again! Jesus time travels with Marty Mann and Nellie Dixon to the […]

Marty’s photo of the day #2796: Here’s a scenic photo, taken along the Rio Orosa in the Amazon Rainforest of Peru.

Prudish ad police at Amazon and Facebook

Prudish ad police at Amazon and Facebook

I’m always learning something. What I’ve learned in recent days is just how prudish both Amazon and Facebook are. They’re prudish, of course, because the conservative side of America is vocal about how nasty the human body is and how it needs to be covered up. Unless, of course, it’s Donald Trump walking in on […]

Arctic lousewort

Marty’s photo of the day #2795: Here’s a photo from the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, just about fifteen miles south of the Arctic Ocean: Arctic lousewort. Tough little plant.

It’s about time . . .

It’s about time . . .

Marty’s photo of the day #2793: I’ve been rejecting posting this photo practically since I started posting photos. The reason is that this aspen forest looked so much cooler in person than it does in the picture. But since I’ve been passing by this photo for so many years, it’s going up today. I wouldn’t […]
