Year One at NAF

With this little post our blog began.   JANUARY 15, 2010 This is our official birthday, even though you’ll find a few posts dated prior to this.  That’s because when we started, several of us moved and back-dated posts from other locations. So we missed our anniversary last month.  But now I wanted to give you […]

An Unexpected Thumbscrew Review

I feel a bit like Anton Ego from Ratatouille. Food was his life. And after many years of enjoying food, he developed a refined pallet for only the best. But there was so much bad food out there, that he couldn’t help but become cynical and over critical with each new review. Although my opinions […]

Alpha Redemption: Winner, Review, and Interview

The Winner (If you don’t know what all this Alpha Redemption stuff is about, read THIS and THIS.) In the last of our numerous posts to help promote NAF’s own PA Baines and the release of his book Alpha Redemption, it is time for us to give you a review and an interview. But not […]

Alpha Renamed and My New Personal Website

One of the things I’m doing in the run up to September 1st is building a personal website so that I can promote myself and my writing. Please drop by and have a look, and tell me what you think. It can be found at: http://www.pabaines.com The planet on the front page is the work […]

Celebrity book deals, donuts, and answered prayer

I have moments of weakness. I’m a lot better than I used to be but I still have a problem handling lucrative celebrity book deals. I have been at peace with the whole me-not-yet-published thing for some time now, but there’s something about celebrities being fawned over by publishing companies that irks me to the […]
