I posted the May 23rd Samson Effect Newsletter on Authors Den. If you get a chance, check it out. I bring you up on the latest news in my corner of the world and I highlight a cool new feature from Google that will allow you to make free directory assistance calls. Love 'em or hate 'em, Google has some pretty cool things going on.

Grieving over his wife's inexplicable descent into madness, a college professor endeavors to find clues in her family history to explain her sudden violence.

Romance is also a vital part of Derek's trademark style and his novels generally appeal to men and women alike. Recently he authored Secret of the Dragon's Eye, his first novel aimed at the young adult market, which met with instant success and outstanding reviews, followed by Secret of the Dragon's Breath, the second in a series of 6.

Interesting Sites

Reader's Circle: If you've been looking for a way to connect with local book clubs, this is it! With an international database of in-person groups, users can easily find a club or start one of their own. This is a great way for readers and authors to connect.

Dedicated to our Defenders: What a great site! Dedicated to our Defenders is a group that collects donated books from authors and readers and ships them to our soldiers overseas. Our soldiers put their lives on the line everyday for us, yet they can find themselves with a lot of downtime. This organization helps them pass their downtime by providing free books to them that they can read and then pass along to their fellow soldiers. I am a member author and have donated to them. You can send them books to help with their mission. You can even purchase The Samson Effect and have it mailed to them. They will make sure it gets to the soldiers.

Free 411 Phone Info By Google: How much do you spend on 411 information calls on your phone? $1.00? $2.00? How about making them for free? Google has just launched its new directory assistance with a toll free number and no charge for the service. Not only that, but you can have the service send your cell a text message with the info and you can even have it send a map of the location. How cool is that?

The number is 800-GOOG-411 or 800-466-4411
