1. Some genius with too much time on his or her hands pasted all the Hobbit trailers together.  I can’t wait to see this movie, though it looks like they added in some scenes that weren’t in the book to strengthen the LOTR link.  Not sure how I feel about that.  You?

  3. Alchemical Detective Back of the Book Blurb

    Coming in May, 2012…

    When Riga Hayworth finds her new client, Helen Baro, dead, she smells a set up of metaphysical proportions.  Now, to find a killer, Riga must travel from San Francisco to the underworld – and make it back alive…

    When Riga’s parents named her for silver screen goddess, Rita Hayworth, they had no idea she’d grow up to be a dead ringer for the actress.  It’s just one of the many oddities that Riga’s had to learn to live with – along with blacking out streetlights and dealing with wisecracking ghosts.

    Riga’s client, Helen, believes her husband is trying to kill her.  One problem:  Helen’s husband is dead.  Riga isn’t sure what to think.  Is Helen mad?  Is someone else trying to harm the woman?  Or is this really a case of attempted murder from beyond the grave?  But then Helen is found dead, leaving a strange haiku and Tarot for a clue, and Riga is hurtled into an investigation that threatens the detective and those she loves. 

    A paranormal mystery based in the San Francisco Bay Area, the Metaphysical Detective explores the power of the archetypes through the double lens of Tarot and Greek mythology.

     
  4. The Game Begins. Can You Follow the Clues to the End?

    I thought I’d have some fun with this and turn the trailer for The Alchemical Detective into a puzzle with an actual prize/freebie at the end.  Can you follow the clues?

     
  5. The Metaphysical Detective is Coming to the Kindle in October
