That's a Harry move if there ever was one. Well, if prefaced with "being chased by (insert evil thing here)".
Maybe that's where his inspiration comes from?

Perhaps Jim finds it less embarrassing if it happens to Harry too.

Or if he's trying to be cool.

*Puffing out my chest and straightening my back, I wheeled around suddenly, whirling my coat like a cape trying to look menacing.
Well, as menacing as one can be while slipping in motor oil and smashing my face into my car mirror.
"Smooth, Harry" I thought through the throbbing pain in my face. "Real smooth".

LOL! It's a Karma party! Thanks, y'all, both for the Karma given and the Karma intended.

I'm still plowing through The Hollows. On #8 right now. Since #4 I've been reading them back-to-back.

Wheeeeee! Karma Party!
Thanks for the K!
I'd continue the story, but I'm busy writing my first steampunk novel entitled "Artificial Scarcity". The title references the long wait I force upon my fans so that they'll appreciate my next work.

Cool New (to me) Unban Fantasy series...

After completing Silent Echo I decided that I quite liked J.R. Rain's writing style. So I grabbed up a copy of the first book in a series of his named 'Vampire for Hire'! The book is titled Moon Dance and is of the genre, Urban Fantasy, which makes it a prime candidate for "stuff to read between 'The Dresden Files' releases". Samantha Moon is a wife, a mother of two, and is a PI. She is also a vampire!! Well, I'm 3/4 of the way through it and have decided to TBR the rest of the series!

On a slightly different note, I got another freebie from Amazon this morning (I've gotten over 360 freebies from Amazon and Smashwords since early in July) and have decided to make it my next novel to read. It's in a sub-genre in which I've read quite a bit over the last few years. Native American cops and PI's. The book is called Tall Man in Ray-Bans (John Tall Wolf #1) by Joseph Flynn.
