In honor of the Falling Immortality Blog Tour starting tomorrow, November 1st, and the first stop being here at Confessions of a Bibliophile, I am sharing with you the second guest post that I'd requested from Robert Downs. Robert won't be taking over the blog until tomorrow, but today's treat for you is from my new favorite P.I, Casey Holden.
So, here is Casey's advice to picking up women...
Picking up women isn’t as hard as women, or the tabloids would have you believe. I stopped reading the rags years ago after an individual, whom I’m not willing to name, was belittled for what must have been the twentieth time. Since women always seem to have the upper hand, I decided to assert some authority over these beautiful, exotic creatures by turning them to Play-
Doh with the right smile or wink. In order to do it successfully, it has to be about them, not you.
Listening isn’t just some mysterious, three-syllable word that has made its way into our vernacular through sheer will. No, it must be permanently ingrained in the male psyche for you to have a chance on the field of battle. And believe me, it will be a battle. I’ve stuck my head in the trenches, I’ve fired my guns at the enemy, and I’ve covered miles and miles of the blood-
soaked earth with no more than my smile and wits to save me. I’ll say this again because it’s worth repeating: it can’t be about you, it has to be about them. Women can smell the scent of a weak man a half-mile away, and your strength becomes your true power over them. This goes back to the days of the caveman, and it hasn’t changed over the course of thousands of years.
It’s not about being a nice guy, or a jerk, a good man, or a prick, or tall, or short, or any of the countless other adjectives used to describe men from the moment we exit the womb: it’s about your ability to retain and project power. Any woman who would say she prefers some drooling, slobbering weakling over a man is either a liar, or simply not worth pursuing. I’ve met women
who prefer puppets, and I’ve run as hard and as fast as I could in the opposite direction, because in the end, it doesn’t do either of you any good. It’s simply a disruption of the universe, and Darwin needs to strike before it’s too late.
Casey Holden is the main character of Falling Immortality: Casey Holden, Private Investigator.
The first in a series of mysteries that compile some of his more interesting cases and endeavors.
Robert Downs is the author of said novel, and while he and Casey have an interesting, yet
complicated relationship, it’s a relationship both of them treasure. A sample chapter of his
MANfiction mystery debut, as well as other interesting information about the author, or his main
character, can be located at his website.

So I am seriously bored out of my mind and not sure what I want to do at the moment other than putter about on the interwebs but I can't since the netbook died and my roommate woke up and got on the comp. Meh! I will figure something out I usually do. Also, gonna be interesting writing reviews on a smartphone until I get a computer that works or just post them on the weekends or days off if I am up before everyone else and can use a comp.
Already have a plan in the works for NaNo when that rolls around in November and then I will be working on a novel....yes I am going to attempt NaNo again and maybe this time something good will come out of it. Will definitely be looking for someone to help with editing or may do it myself and self-publish with Amazon.com or something. We will sew when the time comes.
Alright for now I have domestic duties to attend to and shall be around later.

Okay, have posted to goodreads, and Facebook and twitter, that I have no computer right now. My netbook is dead and my desktop has been dead for a while now. So until things can get worked out I will be updating a bit through my roommate's android phone and the blogger app.
Right now I am reading Trinity by Clare Davidson and Wicked by Gregory Maguire.
Anyway! Time for me to get going. Raining and thundering here, and gonna play a game on the Wii I think...or take a nap.

However, for October, I've got lots of things planned for all you wonderful kiddies out there! Some Bibliophile Eats will have some Halloween featured goodies, as well as the introduction of some of my fall favorites throughout the rest of the season.
Also, I plan on getting to some of those long awaited reviews (my pending review list just keeps growing and growing and I need to make a dent in it). I've also got a new book on my shelves that I won from a giveaway over on Natasha McNeely's blog not too long ago. I need to get to that (I've started reading my signed copy of Trinity by Clare Davidson), and I've also been re-reading Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West. I also need to rewrite a couple of reviews and repost them to Goodreads because apparently I'm not allowed to use similar wording to other reviewers in my reviews without someone reporting them and having them removed.
I've also got another guest post to put up from Voluspa Co-Author Ray, and it's gonna be a fun one. Beyond that, I've got a few reviews that I need to get finished and tossed up to the blog, so I will definitely be stepping things up here because I've been lazy lately.
Also, I've been working on a blog that focuses on my spiritual journey, and you can find it here: Sanctuary for My Soul and I'm working on that as I work on this. Just starting it, so there is still a lot to work with.
That's just an update and some of the things you can look forward to in the coming days this month in October.
For those of you that don't know what these are, they are hot dogs wrapped in crescent rolls and baked. They are very, very tasty especially if you add a little cheese to the inside. You can serve them with ketchup, bbq sauce, mustard, or whatever your favorite dipping sauce is for finger foods :) Common side dishes for this are: potato chips (any variety), french fries (my preference is seasoned wedges or the frozen checkers fries), tater tots, or whatever happens to strike your fancy.
What you are going to need:
- One package of hot dogs (whatever your preference)
- One roll refrigerated crescent dough
- Shredded cheese of preference
