Hi, there! On the off chance that you might actually read this, allow me to introduce myself. I’m Debbi Mack. I’m a hardboiled mystery author; blue collar writer; happy fool; recovering attorney; stroke survivor with dystonia; plus I love film, books, music, travel and cats.
Because of our shared interests, I read this really awesome book …
I loved it SO much, I wrote this review. For the benefit of those who haven’t read it, please,
pretty please, click the link to read the review, because there are important truths in that fictional story. Believe me!
But that’s not all … later, Paul posted something on his blog that I thought was so awesome, I just had to share it …
So, here are my thoughts about the cosmic joke in a nutshell. I guess. Ha!
Incidentally, here’s a blog post about the many times I’ve almost died! Ha ha ha …
Here’s some awesome shit I’ve pinned!
PS: Terry, pardon me for the general messiness of this post, but I’m in the middle of rebranding my website and blog, so … forgive me, please.
Not that anyone gives a shit. Ha ha ha …

Bob Meyer should shut the fuck up authors should quit leaving comments on blogs and just fucking write it’s hard for me to keep up with the pace of publishing these days. Having a gamey (sp?) hand puts me at something of a disadvantage, but I’m determined not to let Helen Keller totally kick my ass!
Not to mention everyone’s sheer stupidity
of the publishing industry … including mine — ha!
Sorry, I didn’t mean to digress …
This is probably just another blog post that won’t make any money! Ha ha ha …
You see I’ve practiced law and freelanced, so I’ve run businesses before.
More awesome shit I’ve pinned …
Oh, but wait … check this out … used ebooks … pretty cute … and scroll down through the comments …
Dear me! Where have I seen that face before?
Yes, I wrote a poem called Tying My Shoelaces. :-/
Well, for what it’s worth, I’ve finished up the special acknowledgments for the new edition of my first novel. Here they are:
No one gets anywhere in life without help from others. I’ve always felt lucky to have such a wonderful husband, family and friends. However, I’m starting to think maybe we choose wisely and that makes all the difference.
When first I decided to self-publish this book, I never intended to make a living as a self-published author. However, things have changed and now it’s possible for almost anyone to do so. However, if you intend to write quality books and establish a real readership, rather than simply selling downloads like commodities, this requires taking the time and effort to produce and market one’s books, as well as establishing oneself as an author.
I’d like to thank the following people for having faith in me and providing the financial support needed to publish this edition of the book: Ned Adams, Mac Cassity, Debra Hoover-McDonald, Rick Iacangelo on behalf of Mary Louise Iacangelo, Nancy Mack for herself and on behalf of Joyce Mack, Karen McQuestion, and Julie Simpson.
I think that about covers it.
PS: Lady Gaga is not awesome! Ha ha ha …
This store looks awesome. Perhaps they’ll carry my books, if I give them ad space on my new web site. Hmm …!
And, in conclusion, this quotation:
“I have made this letter longer, because I have not had the time to make it shorter.”
– Blaise Pascal
UPDATE: I’m afraid I’ll have to revise the special acknowledgments. Again! The wording isn’t just right, but it’s getting there.
And thank you, Winston Churchill!
UPDATE 2: Once again, I’ve found the perfect quote on Nik Nak’s Old Peculiar:
“Science, my lad, has been built upon many errors; but they are errors which it was good to fall into, for they led to the truth.”
