People who actually read the book, love it!

People who actually read the book, love it!

Yesterday I posted a couple 1-star reviews to demonstrate the difficulties of writing liberal books when conservatives, who haven’t even read the story, try to bring them down—as if they were doing a favor for Trump. Today, I’d like to post some of the shorter 5-star reviews for my latest novel Time Is Irreverent 2: […]

Marty’s photo of the day #2860: We travel to the Everglades for this photo I took of a white peacock butterfly.

Bearing false witness

Bearing false witness

Since I have placed multiple liberal-political-content warnings on the Amazon pages for Time Is Irreverent and Time Is Irreverent 2: Jesus Christ, Not Again! I have slowed down the negative reviews from right-wingers. Still some, who have obviously not read the novels, trash them anyway: This one was posted today for Time Is Irreverent: “Seriously. […]

Great horned owl

Great horned owl

Marty’s photo of the day #2859: I took this photo last year and didn’t have to go far to shoot it. This great horned owl landed in a tree right outside the picture window of my second-story writing room. Needless to say, writing slowed down dramatically in my room for the hour or so she […]

Snowy Sedona

Snowy Sedona

Marty’s photo of the day #2858: Several years ago I was on a college speaking tour that routed me through New Mexico and Arizona. I loved that tour! This photo is from a snowing morning, when I made a stop in Sedona between college shows in Arizona.

One brave frog

One brave frog

Marty’s photo of the day #2857: This tree frog, in the Amazon Rainforest of Peru, was fearless—letting me approach to within inches of her face.

Marty’s photo of the day #2856: Here’s a scenic shot from northern British Columbia.

Martyman celebrates National Beer Day

Martyman celebrates National Beer Day

Today is National Beer Day, and Martyman and his little cowfriend, Brett Calve-in-naugh, intend to celebrate the day to its fullest. I’m not sure why Martyman enjoys hanging around with Brett Calve-in-naugh so much. All the cow does is moo and proclaim over-and-over in a whiny voice, “I drank beer with my friends. Almost everyone […]

Female red-winged blackbird

Female red-winged blackbird

Marty’s photo of the day #2855: This is a female red-winged blackbird. Photographed in the Bitterroot Valley of Montana.

Martyman and unfuckupable banana bread

Martyman and unfuckupable banana bread

Aah. . . . Martyman is being nice and cutting banana bread for himself and the Republican Jesus. Oh, wait! He knows the Republican Jesus won’t drop his guns, unless someone pries them from his cold, dead hands. With the Republican Jesus unable to hold any food, Martyman will get both pieces. Well played, Martyman! […]

Castle sacked? Build another one!

Castle sacked? Build another one!

Marty’s photo of the day #2854: What happens if you are a Spanish aristocrat and your first castle gets sacked? You build another one right next to it. (Photographed somewhere along the back roads of Spain.)

Peacocks and turkeys

Peacocks and turkeys

Marty’s photo of the day #2853: Wild turkeys are just rude! A rafter of them live next to my house, along with a few wild peacocks. The peacocks are incredibly shy. In fact, I’m not even positive how many there are. While I’ve been able to photograph the peacocks a few times, I’ve never been […]

Spanish ruins

Spanish ruins

Marty’s photo of the day #2852: Having visited Spain, France, Switzerland, Andorra, and Italy, I have to say that I enjoyed Spain the most. The reason is that Spain feels less touristy, and it’s easy to get into rural areas, away from the crowds. Also, you can be driving a back road and all of […]

Montana moose

Montana moose

Marty’s photo of the day #2851: “I’ll just stand here behind this tree, and we’ll pretend you can’t see me.” (Moose, photographed in my “front yard” several years ago.)

Just how selfish are Republicans?

Just how selfish are Republicans?

Just how selfish are Republicans and their conservative Christian base? When liberal Democrats talk about the Green New Deal as a way to save our planet and make life better for our children and grandchildren, Republicans on Fox News, AM-hate radio, and the internet answer by spewing fear that the Green New Deal will prevent […]

Great blue heron

Marty’s photo of the day #2850: Great blue heron, photographed in the Bitterroot Valley of Montana.

Marty’s photo of the day #2849: Here’s a little slice of summer in Montana for you.
