The Russell Show: My Reaction to the Video "One Man One Cup."

This is a reaction to a video that some of my friends wanted me to make. I have to admit that I was quite freaked out by what I saw.

As part of my summer promotion, and with many more to come, I'm giving away copies of my short story anthology for a limited time only. This is in eBook format only which is perfect if you have an eReader. If you don't, you can either ask for a PDF copy which is great for laptops and PC/MACs. Or you can do what I did and download the Kindle and Nook software for free from Amazon or so that you can read eBooks on your iPAD, Android, iPHONE, Blackberry, or your PC.

You would've noticed that Unsavory Delicacies is still for sale on Amazon,, iTunes, and other sites. Why, You may ask? Believe it or not, some people would rather pay the $1.47US because they don't believe in getting something for nothing. Oh well, I can't change people's habits, can I?

In order to get your free copy, just email me at russellbrookswriter (at) gmail (dot) com, type UNSAVORY DELICACIES in the subject, and let me know if you'd like the PDF, MOBI, or the ePUB format. And feel free to write a 2-5 sentence review on Goodreads, Amazon, Barnes, and/or even your blogs to let me know what you think of it. Oh, and one last thing, some book bloggers had complained that I should've warned them not to read this on their lunch break. Since I don't want a lawsuit on my hands, I'll write this:

DISCLAIMER: Some content may be unsuitable for readers with weak stomachs. Not reading this while eating is strongly recommended.

And for those that don't know, Ridley Fox, from Pandora's Succession makes an appearance.

Happy Reading everyone!

Review - Paris is a Bitch, by Barry Eisler

It's been a while since I read a story with one of my favorite characters, John Rain. It was a welcome return. Again, Rain is faced with a complicated relationship with his girlfriend, Delilah - a Mossad agent - who won't leave the spy business when Rain is trying to get out of the Assassin-For-Hire business. What's even more complicated is that while eating at a gourmet restaurant in Paris, Rain suspects that they are both being watched by a group of hitmen.

This is an excellent dose of Rain in order to prepare us for his return in Eisler's upcoming thriller, THE DETACHMENT.

What do you know, Maybe the rest of the world wants to live in the 21st Century.

Author Jeff Rivera.
It's been barely a week since a groundbreaking decision was made in New York State that allows homosexuals the right to marry. I would like to share with you another victory for a same-sex couple in the country of Costa Rica.

In my previous blog post, I asked for everyone's help to support my friend and literary associate, Jeff Rivera, and his partner, Giovanni Alexander Delgado Castro, in their fight against a casino. Apparently the casino staff had threatened the couple that they would be escorted from the premises after they were spotted touching their hands while they were seated at one of their tables. I want to thank all of you that took one minute out of your busy schedules to send emails to the Costa Rican authorities expressing your disaproval with the way Rivera and Castro were treated. According to Rivera's Website, they received overwhelming support from all over the planet. Furthermore, a victory of this nature has never been won in Costa Rica.

For both Canadians and Americans who are and will be celebrating the respective birth of their nations on July 1 and 4th, this will also be a time to celebrate a victory against hatred and intolerance.
