Modern Thinking... ancient times.

"All formal dogmatic religions are fallacious and must never be accept by self-respecting persons as final."

"Reserve your right to think, for even to think wrongly is better than not to think at all."

Hypatia of Alexandria c. 380 - 415

Mathematical genius, natural philosopher, astronomer, Hypatia was the last Chief Librarian of the Great Library before its destruction. Much loved and respected by the citizens, she was murdered by being flayed alive at the hands of a Christian mob. They were acting on the orders of the bishop of the city who was jealous of her popularity and hated her femininity.

Whatever the religion espoused, some things never seem to change...

A Reader's Review...

From Ellen on the Love Romances loop.

"I won a copy of Mr. Grey & the Hotel Ghosts (Liquid Silver) by A J Matthews during the bash... just wanted to say that I enjoyed it! Loved the idea of Grey's profession - a "ghost buster" or de-haunter.

Bitz n' Bobz...

So, nothing much happening yet. I'm in the middle of the last batch of edits on The Collector 3: Cauldron, my novel of the collaborative series with other Loose Id authors. The other titles are:- The Collector 1: Magical Chances by Mechele Armstrong, and The Collector 2: Grave Heart, by Emily Veinglory, which has just been released. Check out the website dedicated to The Collector.

I'll be undertaking more editing on Lady in White, the next in the Mr. Grey series soon.

Between Times...

I'm not the best of bloggers. Anyone glancing over the frequency of posts these last few weeks can see that. The only time I kept a diary was at junior school (4th - 6th grade in the US) and that was only because we had to. The teacher would call us up to his/her/its desk with it and read it - not out loud, thankfully - but it still felt like an intrusion. I guess that put me off keeping a diary and, by extension - a blog. Don't worry - I'm overcoming it!

So, now I have found inclination, time and energy, what to talk about? The next novel in my Mr. Grey series will be going through the editorial process over the next few weeks, with a release date in time for Thanksgiving. Appropriate, since the story itself is set on and around that time. It will be found at Liquid Silver Books, along with the other two titles, Mr. Grey and the Hotel Ghosts and Mr. Grey and the Spirit from the Sky. I have a whole raft of ideas for the sexy spook-hunters, and I'm working on a couple of storylines now. In the meantime, Cauldron of Fire, a new novel as part of The Collector series at Loose Id Books is halfway through the process, with a provisional release date in December.

Stay tuned at my website, Ajay's Den for details!

Party Poopers Lonely Hearts Club Band…

Taken from the new book "They call me naughty Lola," by David Rose, featuring genuine lonely heart advertisements in a noted London newspaper. Published by Profile Books UK. All copyrights acknowledged.


"Tired of feeling patronized by the ads in this column? Then I'm not the woman for you, little man. Today you may be benighted and insignificant, tomorrow you'll be even more so. Now, off you go. "

"Bald, short, fat and ugly male, 53, seeks short-sighted woman with tremendous sexual appetite. "

"Romance is dead. So is my mother. Man, 42, inherited wealth, seeks…"

"Slut in the kitchen, chef in the bedroom. Woman with mixed priorities (37) seeks man who can toss a good salad. "

"Bastard – complete and utter. Whatever you do, don't reply – you'll only regret it. (Man, 38) "

"My mind is a globe of excitement. My heart is an atlas of generosity. My body is a map of struggle. You can camp-out on the flat heaths, but careful where you tread and remember to close all gates behind you. Akela of desire (F 38) seeks orienteering male to 45 for nights of bluster and queuing for the showers... "
