One of the Wicked: A Mick Callahan Novel (The Mick Callahan Novels Book 2)
Although he knows he needs to avoid trouble and is losing his radio spot to a right wing extremist with an IQ in negative numbers, Mick agrees because he owes Bone for saving his life during their Navy SEAL days. Mick gets some of his friends to help him watch the woman.
However, the case takes two nasty spins. Big Paul summons Mick to a chit chat in his casino in the Valley of Fire where he is told what to do or else he and compatriots will lose joints, limbs, and lives to his henchman Nikolaou Argetoianu. Also apparently Stone also stole money from a neighborhood dealer and Big Paul needs to send a loud message to wannabes even if that means killing Mick if he cannot immediately find Stone.
Even though the key cast except somewhat AA alumni Mick is never fully developed beyond one superficial trait each, the action is everything in this one sitting thriller. Get fast, free shipping with Amazon Prime. Your recently viewed items and featured recommendations.

We did go back to Borders get more that night, and we also drove to other nearby cities to check out their sales. No other bookstore dropped their prices to ninety percent off until the shelves were almost empty, so it turned out that we were very lucky that our Borders happened to slash prices while so many books were still available.
We bought well over one hundred books, many of which are still on my bookshelves waiting to be read. On one of these book-buying excursions, April and Oliver ended up in my shopping basket. I loved the dreamy blue cover art and the opening lines:. The car fishtails, rocketing into a spin.
The faster it pivots, the slower time moves. Buddy is the fixed point, the world careening around him.
At one point they were completely inseparable, but they have now become practically strangers as adults, leading very different lives. Oliver is the responsible law student and April is the reckless one. As Oliver is drawn back to the mysterious April, it poses a threat to both his own carefully constructed life and his recent engagement to a woman who is much more sensible and responsible than April. Drop me a line and let me know what some of your favorite lesser-known novels are.
And let me know what you think of April and Oliver. Hallie Shepherd is a writer, actress, and film producer. Follow her on Instagram where she celebrates the stories we tell.

This article originally appeared in Chicago-Woman on March 11, I also describe how my new novel came to me like a fly ball. Our brains automatically put things into categories. If we always approach tasks by way of the usual entrance, they begin to all look alike. When the front door to a project is wide open, it may seem like lunacy to climb a trellis to a third floor window, but your stained knees and scraped hands will have been worth it.
Imagination loves a dare. Emulate with a Twist: Painters traditionally learn their craft by copying master works. As a novelist and teacher, I sometimes challenge my students to do writing exercises in the style of the writers they most admire. How do they open a meeting? What is their manner of listening and speaking? What makes their emails distinct? What is it about their work that stands out? When you sit down to begin your next project, pretend you are that person. Inhabit her mind for a moment. Would she climb the trellis? Snake in through a basement window?
Learn from as many different tactics as you can and select the best from each. Borrow from people with divergent approaches and combine them to create your own.

Can we boost our creative goals by constraining them? Here is a counter-intuitive method of unleashing creativity by putting chains on it. Like Houdini, the imagination likes to use its wits to unshackle itself.

This talk explores artists and writers who sought out constraints to leverage inspiration. Innovation needs a boundary to push against. Shakespeare did it. Countless artists and innovators have done it. Discover how to give your own creativity a wild dare. Notice what each character chooses to carry and what that tells you about him.

Make a list of the things you carry on your body, in your purse or backpack, in your wallet, etc. Think of each item as a metaphor, a signpost pointing to something else. Maybe your reading glasses point to your feelings about aging. Maybe your keys symbolize the different compartments of your life, the places you inhabit.
Draw a line from each object to the thing it stands for.
Now add to the list the things you carry that are not reflected by physical objects, your preoccupations, worries, hopes, etc. Include any thought patterns that routinely circulate in your mind. Read over your list and circle the things that jump out at you, the ones that hold the most energy. Free write about them for five minutes. As much as possible, include details of time and place. Incorporate smells, sounds, tastes, textures, temperatures, colors and patterns—all of the senses. Allow your musings to arrange themselves into lines of poetry or a character sketch for fiction.

Use your non-dominant hand. This is a practice I learned at the Art Students League in New York, where I realized that drawing a model with my left instead of right hand made me see the subject differently. Sure, the drawings were terrible though they did get better over time but when I went back to drawing with my dominant hand, it was as if a bit of the left hand perspective had joined in.
If you keep a writing journal, try making every other entry with the opposite hand. Get up and move. Back at her typewriter, she recalls that dream and transcribes it. The scenes in my own novels usually unfold during walks in the woods with my dog. In the classroom, I try to get my students up and moving as much as possible. Physical stagnancy can cause the creative juices to stagnate, too.
Employ the power of two. Hemingway and Fitzgerald would not have been who they were without Maxwell Perkins. I regularly have my students do brief story-generating exercises in pairs or groups of three. Sometimes it devolves into silliness, friction and occasional brilliance. All are worth it. I meet weekly with writer friends to work in silence together, a practice which strikes some as bizarre, but which helps us stay motivated and on task. Even the lonely work of novel writing can benefit from company. Sleep In. All I have to do is be present and watch the scenes unfold.
The trick then is to write them down before the obligations of the day surge into motion. This is sacred time.
If your day allows it, take it. Work on more than one thing at a time. Full disclosure: I am terrible at this, but when I do manage to do so, both projects benefit. My painting teacher, Roy Kinzer , always encouraged us to have multiple canvases in motion concurrently, so that if we got stuck with one, we could move to the other. Often that shift allowed obstacles to get sorted out in the back of the brain. Upon returning to the first canvas, voila, the solution was clear. But working on several projects simultaneously keeps the mind malleable. I invite you to share your own creative insights with me on Facebook and Twitter TessCallahan.

Posted in Prompts. The elegant, gargantuan birds are constructed of shovels, hard hats, jackhammers, pliers, saws, screwdrivers, plastic accordion tubing and drills. No dice. They withdrew the commission, but the artist forged ahead with the project and the birds have been exhibited in the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine and elsewhere.
While the limited materials made the sculptures more challenging to construct, they also made them infinitely more compelling both aesthetically and symbolically. In the process, a new style of Japanese emerged that was entirely his own. He describes the experience as a moment of clarity when the scales fell from his eyes. They complained about the confines of the exercise, but promptly produced great stuff. Material is one way to exploit constraints.
