Psychic Undercover (With The Undead): a new book by Amie Gibbons

A good read to have on a laptop or a tablet while traveling to SHOT show. 360 pages of urban fantasy entertainment with serious issues addressed at the same time.

Vampires aren’t the only things that go bump in the night…

Singers are a dime a dozen in Nashville, so despite her mama’s urging, psychic Ariana Ryder’s working her way towards a career in law enforcement at the FBI, one tray of fetched coffee at a time, instead. She’s got an extremely handsome boss, a dancing partner among the lab techs, and a solid year as the team rookie under her belt…

Right until the director gives her a big break, working undercover as a singer at a club to investigate why it’s being targeted by a serial killer. This might have worked better if the club didn’t happen to be a vampire nest.

Now, with the vampire’s investigator, Quil, on her case, the jurisdictional battle isn’t the only thing heating up as they race to solve the case before the killer strikes again!

The cover is a collaboration between Julia Marie and I.

360 VR viewer for LG phone

My phone came with a VR headset. Other than viewing spherical or panoramic images, what else is it good for? Does anyone make games or other programs that would benefit from the headset? Can it be used as a viewer for stereo pairs?

This is why gun ownership remains a political controversy

All other concerns — hunting, sport, even self-defense — are secondary considerations to people who do not wish to be ruled…and to the fiends whose self-worth depends on ruling others.

Top grade firearm training in Nashville, February 2017

The awesome Tatiana Whitlock will be in Nashville February 18-19 to offer two courses. I recommend her coaching very highly — she’s an amazing shooter and no less amazing teacher, able to work with new learners or to improve already competent shooters.

The courses must have a minimum number of students in order for her to be able to come to Tennessee, so please sign up early. Bringing a spouse or a partner is recommended by me — if you might fight together someday, makes sense to train together. The classes will be at a 35-yard indoor range, so weather won’t be a factor.

I endorse Tatiana Whitlock as a superb trainer.
