CRYING WOLF (Still More)

Freedy heard a man’s voice from inside the house: “Better put your bathing suit on. The pool boy’s out back.”

– Freedy’s first appearance in the story. “And right away,” says Spence, “you’ve got me a bit nervous.”

“Heh heh,” say Admin (author of CRYING WOLF, one of his college novels, the others being HARD RAIN and REVOLUTION #9.)

    We here are enjoying the daily excerpts and are looking forward to reading Crying Wolf.
    Our stack of “to be read” grows ever higher.

    Good day to HOH, B, LL, and Staff.

    HOH: Nice to see the progress on the house. Move-in is getting closer.

    I’ve ordered Crying Wolf. (Whispering: The hardcover is only sixty-five cents at Amazon.) To answer my own question: I suppose it is a “college novel” because the main characters are students at a college.

    3:46 pm on January 7th, 2016

    I thought at first he meant that he wrote it while in college.

    HOH, The house is looking really good.

    I am worried about Tupper and Gilly’s maw.

    My daddy is back home with us! Hurray. Things do not run so smoothly without him.

    I just returned and my computer was left on with the Chet the Dog blog page up and a posting by me – not submitted that said, “Where is everyone?” I’d been gone since 11 this morning.

    Crying Wolf at amazon dot ca (canadian) is 27.53. Pisses me off, that. Of course our dollar is only worth 2 cents right now so therefore…

    DianeC: Thinking of you when I saw an article the other day about the buffalo in and near Yellowstone…

    I’m kind of crabby, think it is because I haven’t taken a walk in a couple days. Too cold.

    Hope the Royal Mum and the Storyteller are doing okay.

    At least Kat’s Pop is home.

    Dawson: Could you Order It on Kindle? $7.99

  17. dawson
    7:16 pm on January 7th, 2016

    BearSpiritDog: I could do that because, though I don’t have a kindle I do have a kindle icon on my desktop from ordering Santa 365. I have no problem reading short stories on the computer but to read a whole book on the computer is not my thing. If is was I could just read from that link I posted yesterday. I may end up doing that anyways.

    Wowser – so much happens on the blog in such a short time.

    OK, so I went in for what was supposed to be a quickie cosmetic procedure. However, once the surgeon started, she found a serious, but fixable problem. So, she fixed it. But that meant a lot more surgery than was planned. And a lot more pain. But everything is all good now, and we are thanking our lucky stars that we had a good, observant surgeon, and things down the road will all be good.

    And thanks to all of you for good thoughts and prayers

    Freedy!….YEEEEEEP!…Do the words Sociopath or Psychopath mean anything to youse?….gurgle!…When I met this guy, I was seriously worrit about Admin himself because he wrote the character as if he truly knew how a Sociopath or Psychopath really thinks, feels and works things out to be Justified….gag!

    From AJ’s facebook page…

    I’m thinking this will be my outfit for Iditarod this year. Being the fashion icon that I am.

    (He has been double-dog-dared to wear it.)

    Dear Amalia, You are being watched over by the Creator and your good doctor. I wondered why your elective surgery was taking so long. YEEP. It is so good to have you home! I am glad your doctor had the balls to go for it.

    9:11 pm on January 7th, 2016

    College!…My first reaction was Hard Rain and Revolution #9 were not “college” novels, but then my inner memory kicked in and yes by golly they are written with colleges as a back drop in one form or another…wheeze!…I think I am getting old and losing it more and more each dawg-damned-day…yeeep!

    Brag!…I can brag that I have read every single novel and short story that The Charming Mr Abrahams has written that has been published…snort!…I would really like to read his unpublished works, if there are any…heh!heh!…Someone mentioned the stuff he wrote in college. Wouldn’t that be awesome if I could get my paws on that stuff….hmmm!…This is starting to smell like a Mission….shhhhhh!

    Rio Well I know that two times two is higher than you can count. But it is 4. And a quad is four. Four of something.

    Maybe my brain does work in convoluted ways.

    Maybe caused by my helper here at the computer…
