Review: Devil’s Nightmare by Robert “Sharkey” Pruneda

I read the original Nook version first. I’m actually reviewing the Forsaken edition.
Cleaned up nicely. I’m not sure if the extra flavor bits helped or not – they didn’t add to the setting or atmosphere; I knew the story was set in Texas. You can tell the author has a Southwestern influence.

Many nice surprises. At first I was reminded of Sigler’s Nocturnal. The two are not the same. Aaron and his new partner are not buddies.

This tale paced well. Everything happened without being rushed. There was enough tension and suspense to keep it interesting.  Every time I thought I had things figured out, switch it up!

The mystery kept going. I had my suspicions – incorrect but everything was plausible. Not everything is revealed conveniently for the reader or the characters.

Worth a read.
There’s a sequel? Why, yes. Devil’s Nightmare: Premonitions. I can’t wait.

Chris Pratt and Movie Merchandising

Miles brought up a good observation last night. Chris Pratt is the only person with 3 characters as Lego minifigures – Emmett, Starlord/Peter Quill, and his Jurassic World character.
A good point indeed. Most other actors and actresses only have one. I struggle to come up with any other multiples.

Let’s Make This Kid’s Day

Originally posted on Pearls Before Swine:

So a couple weeks ago, when I was at St. Jude Children’s Hospital, I met this very cool kid named Tyler who’s battling leukemia.  His mom happened to mention to me that he loves to see new “likes” on his Facebook page.  So how about we blow his mind and add a few more “likes” to the 2,400 he has now.

Just go HERE and click “like”.

Planet Comicon

We’re at Planet Comicon in Kansas City.
Having fun.
Seeing lots of fun costumes. Seeing a few people we knew.
So many comics. Tons of toys. Many Legos.
Kevin J Anderson is the only “famous” person we’ve seen so far despite sitting for a sip next to Celebrity Row.

Go Fund the Davis Theatre

The local movie theater is trying to make a come back. It’s been closed for a while. The last movie I watched there was the midnight showing of The Amazing Spider-Man with Miles. He’d never been to a midnight movie. He toughed it out to the end. He’s almost old enough to drive now but we haven’t done a movie that late since.

I’m excited to see the campaign rolling again. This has to be the push to get it open. When movies went almost exclusively digital, the theater couldn’t do showings with their reel projectors. By the time a reel would become available, the movie would be past its relevance. Most often there was no reel. So, no movies.

We have a theater in each direction: Warrensburg, Lexington, Marshall, Grain Valley (not sure about Oak Grove). These are all franchise houses with big movie companies behind them. Davis Theatre is locally owned. I can’t wait to see it reopen.

The campaign is here:
This campaign is raising money for “Davis Theatre Goes Digital!”

Every bit helps.
