Thank you,

I bought New Coastal Times. I am reading it now. I am sure I will be giving you a stellar review, from what I've read so far.

I decoded and explained away all the inaccessibility usually attributed to Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.; his book is considered a classic but just too hard. But not after my inserted definitions, asides, legal terms, and Latin translations: The annotated Common Law: with 2010 Foreword and Explanatory Notes (Legal Legends Series) . Hope it is useful for college students, summer reading before law school, and law students and scholars. I am a law prof with a JD and PhD and have taught Holmes for 23 years to students who "get it" once I translate him to modern eyes. I also made sure to proofread the source material well, unlike any version sold or free today -- all trace back to a bad scan job missing words from the inside margins and attribute to Holmes such words as "docs" and "modem." This edition is useful just for being the actual, complete words that Holmes wrote.

The Pen Pal

This review is from: The Pen Pal (Volume 1) (Paperback)
Shaymus O'Shea is the kind of people we wonder about when we hear disturbing news stories of people's disappearances and seriel killers at large. We wonder what kind of monsters commit such cruel and senseless killings. We associate them with the worst nightmare we have had. Sure, there have been many studies about the psychology behind the profiles of seriel killers. Some say it is a disease. It is as if anything we human beings don't like can be blamed on some anomolies of our body and mind.

Read Richard Banegas' "The Pen Pal", and you will be disturbed and shocked. Remember "Silence of the Lamb"? Remember Joseph Congrad's "Heaart of Darkness"? You will get that. But you will also get something else. "The Pen Pal" takes a unique perpective to a crime story and reveals something completely unexpected. The story has a slow start and for a while you may not recognize what you are reading. The setting is early 20th century in the countryside of Irland. It reads like a tale of the growing up of a boy, surrounded by a large family. You can smell, hear and feel the life of the people in this little town.

And then subtly, you feel something creeping up. Only you can decide what you read, because you will be led through a dialogue, not about somebody else, but about you, as a human being. Only you will decide what you learn.

The author has the pungent style that reminds me of New Yord Book Bestseller author Augusten Burroughs. He does not just write, he engraves, spits, and shouts out his words.

This review is from: The Pen Pal (Volume 1) (Paperback)
I have read all of Richard's books and find this one to by my favorite by far. His character development is amazing and his writing style is a natural rawness that makes you feel like the story is being told to you in person rather then reading it in writing. There are a wide range of emotions that the characters feel throughout the book and as you read it, you feel those same emotions. Its reviting, captivating, and a story worth reading and sharing with others. I believe Richard has talent to go far in the literature world and look forward to seeing what else he publishes.

Want to read a story you just can't put down? then the Pen Pal is for you. See a free sample before you purchase.

Hi, I read somewhere that if Amazon is no longer carrying a certain book or the publisher decides to axe a certain book, then Amazon will automatically take away those books off your Kindle.

Is this true? Will I be able to keep the books even they went out of print or whatnot?

Hey Donna,

I just got done reading New Coastal Times. It was great! I left a review reflecting just how great it was. The review should be there within 48 hours. Thanks for a great story! Never stop writing.

Is it possible to download e-books from other sources, ie the public library?

In reply to an earlier post on Jul 30, 2010 10:04:23 AM PDT
Barb: There are other sources of ebooks. Thousands of titles in Kindle and other formats are available for download at Smashwords (http://www.smashwords.com/)...including my own modest science fiction and fantasy efforts (http://www.smashwords.com/profile/view/sgoldin). Happy reading.

Since Amazon has a Kindle shop button could they move Kindle books to the back of an author's list of books or just have them on the Kindle button? I look for books and the first thing that pops up are Kindle editons of what I am looking for. I do not like the idea of Amazon giving preference to their Kindle edition sales.

Barb, do you mean books to the Kindle. Our library has audio books that go to the MP3 player.
