Ultimate Terror, Ultimate Sacrifice (Book) - 10/27/2006 5:51:04 AM|
Patrick - This is very good. You are immediately bringing the characters alive to the reader.
A few suggestions: I see at least 7 possible chapter-breaks in the first part (before getting to CHAPTER 6). Rule-of-thumb: 1) when changing the story to introduce each character, break to a new chapter; 2) if with the same characters, and one chapter gets too long, break to a new chapter when a new day, new situation, or a new location begins in that particular story line.
By giving each character their new chapter, the story line and characters won't co-mingle and maybe get confusing.
Hope you get the idea of what I'm trying to say. I've read many books where chapters contain only a couple pages to separate diverse plots (explanations so to speak) within the whole story.
Let us know when this has been published!
Another thought...you begin by mentioning "a young boy is found dying from an overdose...and brother is running from scene" - if this is the mainstay of your novel, and if all other characters are a part of mystery of "young boy found dying/running brother", I think the first chapter should begin with his (boy's)story/introduction. Then once the other characters are introduced, their backgrounds explained, the story will go from there and all will mesh easier.

Jim, Where Are You. (Book) - 9/22/2004 5:19:48 PM
I obtained an early copy of the book and found it not only easy reading, but fairly fast paced. It has suspense, some sex, some humor, sympathy, several twists, happiness, sadness and if you are the type the ability to draw a tear. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and look forward to his next book.

A very intriguing story, that was well written; kept me wanting to read faster. If added to (deeper involvement of the many situations) this would make a great novel!

Quite a gripping story, Patrick - and quite sad how organized religion ironically often drives men farther apart than bringing them closer together - under the same God.
A division between friends (Short Story) - 3/23/2005 6:01:13 AM
This is so sad Pat. I am very lucky I live in a country where the practice of religion is left up to me. It is too bad for Gerald and mary, cause they would have made a decent couple. It is too bad, that now, in 21st century, Ireland remains divided and religion is the reason for that division. Why can't other countries, practice all rights for their consituents, instead of just a few. This story Pat, made me cry, and even more so at Gerald's death, because of some crazed lunatic's, fascination with same sex behavior. I am so glad that I am who I am, that way no one can blackmail me, tell the neighborhood my so-called "secrets," or tell my employer, who already knows. Because of the strife around the world, and we even have our problems here, I would not trade the USA for any other country. Even when the director was found dead, by apparent suicide, I was depply saddened, as I do not believe that other human beings should kill other human beings, no matter what their faults. This is a very sad, profound and very deep write Pat, and even though I enjoyed reading it, it did make me cry. May the Lord be with you always, and at your side constantly. With much love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth, & (HUGS))), Barbie

Excellent story. A very sad and traumatic story of heartwrenching events of prejudice and all that it brings and destroys.
Very Emotional good, happy and sad, fear, and many emotions.
This is really a good story!. Excellent.
I really enjoyed this.
Thank You Pat

Time out with God is time out with peace and love.
We don't always think of it that way but we need to be reminded.
This e-mail has been around a few times but it is always timely.
Like a good cup of tea or coffee, we need daily time out with God.

How to clear the snow from your driveway (Article) - 10/11/2007 7:15:01 PM
You missed this one. Move to a warm climate. I have not seen snow in years and when I did, it usually was gone by noon. My son made a snow angel, and I had to ask my husband what a snow angel was. That would work for us when we have snow.
Ann Margaret (Article) - 3/31/2007 9:28:40 AM
Very Good. Famous people aren't always so aloof. They're human and caring too. And I always thought Elvis Presley made a big mistake when he didn't marry her. Now I know I was right.
How to clear the snow from your driveway (Article) - 2/17/2007 8:48:15 PM
This is your second writing on which I have commented. I again received my money's worth enjoying your cents of humor. There is one problem you omitted. It does not matter which method you choose to clear the driveway. After you have finished, the town's street plow will immediately come through and fill up your driveway entrance once again with more snow, this time densely packed.

A very cleverly written theme. Its significance should not be misunderestimated.....
A Mind of its Own. (Article) - 10/23/2006 5:59:22 PM
Patrick: there are books, by Rita Mae Brown & Sneaky Pie Brown - Mrs. Murphy Mysteries - that each (about a dozen thus far) contains a Cast of Characters at the onset. Not sure of any other books with this "cast" used. One point on adding the "cast": if you plan on continuing to write other Sgt. Bob White novels, I'd not use the "cast". Usually the throw-away "cast", are dead-ringers on who will not be around (the guilty parties) for future novels, as I've discovered in Mrs. Murphy Mysteries.
Interesting information to learn from in this article.
BTW, I've begun reading your book-chapters, and have it bookmarked to continue reading. Will leave a few comments when I complete the reading. I like the character of Sgt. Bob White...sorta like Michael Connelly's Harry Bosch character.
Later - Micke

The Passing of Pudge our much loved pug (Article) - 9/1/2006 12:44:53 PM
Hi Mr. McCormack,
I loved your story about Pudge! I'm sorry for you and Sonia about her passing. It was both beautiful and heartbreaking. I know what it's like to lose a beloved pet. I recently lost my cockatiel Sunny. I had her since I was 16 years old. She was going to be 9, but she passed before her birthday. I hope that you get another pug soon!. I have five other birds, but of course they don't take the place of Sunny. Loved your story, thank you so much for this beautiful tribute. Very touching!
Divide and Conquer (Article) - 4/6/2006 3:49:28 AM
I'm not sure what I think about what you have written. I was born in Australia, Irish descent from my great grandparents who were born in Dublin. I have a fire within me that I choose to credit to my 'Irishness' and I am proud of that fire and the heritage. However I wasn't brought up to think Irish at all, it was never mentioned. I never knew my grandfather as he died before I was born. I would have loved to have known him though as I hear he was a thoroughly lovely man, and I bet my Dad took after him.
I have red hair, fair skin, brown eyes, and lots of freckles lol. I definitely don't belong in Australia, the sunburnt country.
When I was growing up I was drawn to books about Ireland, and I didn't know why. I had a 'thing' about the Catholic Church and yet I was christened CofE. My father would never allow any of the family to say he was Catholic when he was in hospital for fear a priest would visit him; he never went to Church nor did he mention it. But I can remember a story of how my Grandfather hated the priests and my father inherited this hate. Why? I never found out but I imagine it stemmed from my great-grandparents and maybe what they found in Australia with the priests as well carried the hate on.
I had a very good friend, Catholic, not Irish, when I was growing up and I would go to church with her whenever I could. I can't explain the feeling I always had when I walked in the doors and sat in a pew. Even as a teenager it got to me somehow and I was always sad that my father decided none of his children would be Catholic.
I noted your comments that a lot is blamed on religion and in the case of my family it appears that was pretty much where the problems sat. I don't know why my grandies left Ireland and it's too late to try to find out except for the bit of family history we have managed to salvage courtesy of an uncle and a cousin. My father's family are almost all gone now and I don't think they know much anyhow, those that are left. Seems it wasn't a topic of discussion or of pride to be Irish.
I'm hoping to make it 'home' as I call Ireland later this year and I am excited at the prospect of standing on the soil there and thinking about a past that I never knew, but feel.
I often wonder about the millions of Irish who live overseas and why they never get the yearning to return home. I guess you had to be born there to know the reasons why. I have such a strong pull to go there and I'm really not sure why. I wear a claddagh ring and pendant and never take them off.
An interesting read for me though, some history to take in. Oh and I love Irish music - the sadness of it gets right into my soul. And then there's the other music, the beauty of it. Maybe in another lifetime I did live in Ireland. I hope so, and when I go back I will feel that I have been to the places I visit before. An exciting prospect.
Thank you for your story and I will read more soon of your writing about Ireland.
Patriotism (Article) - 12/14/2005 8:19:19 AM
You know, here in America we can come up with some very quirky bumper stickers. But the tatoos are even more bizarre. Talking about the "lap dance" thing--that was nothing like a tatoo I saw on a young woman's arm at a McDonald's restaurant in Grand Rapids Michigan that showed the backside of a nude woman with legs wrapped around the back of a man's body. What's worse. . . she had a young child in her company.
And we wonder where the kids get this stuff? Amazin', ain't it?
Politeness and Chivalry will never go out of style in my book. blessin's to ya Brother Patrick,

Patrick, I was reviewing some of your work while I was taking a break from doing some of my family (McGovern/Kennedy) research from Caval and read Ann Margaret first. This is great. I intend on reading everything you have placed in print.
Thank you for being a writer.

I once impersonated a movie star as a comedy routine, but I had no idea I was causing a public disturbance. In fact, I never learned about other people's ideas of women until I had become a mother and received a computer as a gift.
A belated New Years Resolution for the Silent Majority (Article) - 7/9/2005 10:52:18 AM
The mingling of races is in no way an advancement for society. It is instead a breaking and splitting of families and good times shared with our loved ones in the joy of happy memories and common traditions. America is mostly lost, and greatly in need of true wisdom.

Christmas Remembered (Article) - 5/8/2005 3:35:47 PM
I enjoyed this article. I know that people usually only like to read Christmas stories around Christmas but I like to read them anytime. It's interesting that just recently I had a conversation with a friend about how I long for the simpler times of yesterday when the world I do beleive was a better place to live in for many reasons. Yes, it is nice to look back on the good times. I do that quite often nowdays. Sorry for your losses. I've had some of those and I can identify.
Divide and Conquer (Article) - 3/27/2005 8:53:07 AM
A wonderful insight into the basis of the Irish problem. Seems the world over, the "culprits" are those that cause the breaks between the "haves" and "have-nots", no matter the religion or tribe or politics. Ironically, the scare tactics "...about being controlled by the Catholics...and interference from Rome" was used in the U.S. against the candidacy of an Irish Catholic for President, John F. Kennedy; fortunately, it didn't scare all the people!
Enjoyed reading this, Patrick.

You would of landed in prison eventually, it would of not been worth it either, Know a friend who's son is having this problem with an internet friendship supposedly, that was an undercover police lady. Do not be trapped with the tangle of life, you did good to let her stay and get cold in her life. I admire you for doing it, and don't feel guitly, it was a bad scene you came across. You would of hurt your wife and your family too. Sometimes you cannot help others especially that kind of person.
Intimate moments with a special person (Poetry) - 6/9/2008 3:25:31 PM
Had a good time talking with my hubby Tom, We always could talk things over and agreed before marriage that that is what would hold our marriage together. It lasted til death parted him from me, a very sad time, I felt I had to go with him too and soon, but now 8 months and still grieving but still here. He will be waiting at the pearly gates for me to enter in, that is a nice thought to keep me going. Thanks for the write, so romantic and sentimental. We both were that too and life was worth living then with him.
The Touching of my Heart (Poetry) - 6/9/2008 3:22:50 PM
Good tale of love and love that lasts and lasts until eternity. I had it too but he left Aug 17 07 to go with the angels in heaven and his Lord and Savior. He is in my spirit now too and I will love him always, He was so touching a person to me and sounds like you treat yours as he treated me. Nothing can keep love from growing, but death. Yours is still growing, I am sure.
I'm Rich (Poetry) - 6/9/2008 3:19:35 PM
Rich without all the money, but the feelings and the love that you have for her. Friendship means a lot and that is what life is about too, being friends and keeping them and trying to please them and letting them know things as this write says.

What happened Patrick? There is so much hustle and bustle today. People don't take time to know one another before the relationship that perhaps should not have been is ruined by making a move too soon. This is so wonderful. I feel like singing 'how much is that doggie in the window, the one with the waggly tail, I do hope that doggies for sale'. While I walk and hold hands. (SMILE)

You did right, you should in no way feel guilty
As a retired Police officer, That was part of my duty
"The prostitutes" and believe me,in her mind
she thinks she's doing good. I know it was cold
so is her heart deep inside,
if she has a pimp He's God To her
think of this, as if you were talking to a priest
looking for absolutions, Believe me.
some of the answers, of these other honest reviews
would have been the least of your problems.
Peace be with you

Dear Mr. McCormick, I was deeply moved by this outstanding piece you have penned here. I can relate every line so well to my own life and, like you, feel so grateful to those who have touched my life from childhood to the present. I especially loved the feelings you convey about your children and when, at last, you found that special person who made your life complete. I truly enjoyed every moment of this.

Fine write! Patrick, this reads like a song--I can practically hear the music. It's a fine thing to be grateful for God's gifts, and the pain that you've felt makes them all the more precious...

(sniffles) this is soooooooooo great Pat. And you are so right too. Intimacy does not mean having just sex. It means having a relationship of trust, of communication, of laughter, of sadness, of raising your children the best you know how. Giving presents that don't cost too much, but having the thought of giving him (her) something nice. This and many other things are what an intimate relationship is all about. May the Lord be with you always, and at your side constantly. With much love, peace, & (((HUGS))), Barbie

This is so soft, so romantic, so strong, so peaceful, a loud strong message of true love and all that it is. So beautiful it brings tears to my eyes. Just sways gracefully into my heart. Your heart beating peacfully as is your mind, and now mine.

Beautiful and Strong.
Thank You Pat for showing me and teaching me when true love comes along, I now will know.
Love Tracey xoox

sad write, but understandable
today in these times it is very hard to follow your heart, your car could have been impounded your picture shown on John's t.v. arrested for just trying to help and not alot of people would have believed you, alot of things could have happen or she could have gotten in warmed up and gotten back out, very little chance you would have saved her life (from her life choice not in the time it would have taken to warm her bones) just goes to show your good heart
enjoyed your write
The Lone Lady-of-the-Night in the Cold (Poetry) - 3/7/2005 6:44:17 PM
Excellent Poem. Very emotional on everyone's parts. Anger fear guilt, quetions, reassurance, sadness, many emotions/thoughts. Excellent.
A piece of your book I read, as excellent by the way.
Thank You Patrick.
love Tracey xo

The Lone Lady-of-the-Night in the Cold (Poetry) - 3/6/2005 7:42:31 AM
Pat this is very good, and I do agree with your friends. A pimp is not far away, if she is standing all alone, and if you only provided a little shelter, it would for the time spent, not the services had, that you would have been forced to pay for. If they would legalize prostitution, and control it under city standards of health, then it wouldn't be bad, and maybe all the rapes you hear of, would drop very considerably. But in this case that you write about, I agree with your friends, you kept on going, because you did not wish to get beaten, robbed or both. May the Lord be with you always, and at your side constantly. With much love, peace, & (((HUGS))) ... Barbie
