Tuesday Tips: Stand Up

I have been on a strict fitness program. I have actually already lost over 100 pounds and still dropping.

The more fit I become the clearer I think and the better, easier, faster my writing is.

I got to weigh 296lbs mostly because of my sedentary life working on the computer all day at work and then all evening at home.

Everyone at work stared getting stand up desks and I jumped on that bandwagon with a stand-up portable desk at home!

It allows me to work standing while watching TV, outside, in my office, anywhere really.

I got it on Amazon and it was only $46 delivered!

--My legs are already sore!

Sign up maybe win a Million$!

I am have an Email Notification list that I will use to keep you informed of new releases, book signings or other events. I promise not to spam the hell out of you!

Plus you will have a chance to will $1,000,000 twice a week! Seriously!

--Fun stuff!

Reading: Departure

This week I read: Departure by A.G. Riddle.

Here is the description from Amazon:

En route to London from New York, Flight 305 suddenly loses power and crash-lands in the English countryside, plunging a group of strangers into a mysterious adventure that will have repercussions for all of humankind.

Struggling to stay alive, the survivors soon realize that the world they’ve crashed in is very different from the one they left. But where are they? Why are they here? And how will they get back home?

Five passengers seem to hold clues about what’s really going on: writer Harper Lane, venture capitalist Nick Stone, German genetic researcher Sabrina Schröder, computer scientist Yul Tan, and Grayson Shaw, the son of a billionaire philanthropist.

As more facts about the crash emerge, it becomes clear that some in this group know more than they’re letting on—answers that will lead Harper and Nick to uncover a far-reaching conspiracy involving their own lives. As they begin to piece together the truth, they discover they have the power to change the future and the past—to save our world . . . or end it.

--Good stuff. Fast easy read that kind of reminded me of LOST!

Cuando Cruze se escapa de la prisión, Locke se encarga de encontrarla. Debería ser fácil hallarla… sólo necesita seguir el rastro de cuerpos.

Pero Locke ha sido investigador por mucho tiempo. Y en poco tiempo notará que está sucediendo más de lo que le han dicho...
