Robert Liparulo's Comes A Horseman

Comes A Horseman, the first offering of acclaimed newspaper reporter Robert Liparulo is already receiving rave reviews:

"Robert Liparulo writes the kind of thriller other authors write in their dreams, and readers devour until the wee hours of the morning! Make way for a new master of the genre and a can't-put-down knockout with Comes a Horseman." —Mark Andrew Olsen, author of The Assignment and co-author of Hadassah.

"Robert Liparulo is one of the best writers to hit the block in a long time. Comes a Horseman is brilliantly conceived and executed. It will leave readers desperately wanting more." —Ted Dekker, author of the #1 best-selling Obsessed .

"Not for the faint of heart, this is quality writing that deserves a lofty niche within the action/suspense genre. It is well-researched and meticulously detailed, and the characters are fascinating and 'real,' the dialogue clever and altogether human, the plot compelling. What I'm trying to say is, I love it!" —Frank Peretti, author of Monster and This Present Darkness .

Frightening and fiendishly smart, Comes a Horseman is a must-read! Robert Liparulo's intense thrill ride will keep your nerves frayed and your lights on. —David Morrell, best-selling author of Creepers and The Brotherhood of the Rose

Comes A Horseman became one of Amazon’s top 100 thrillers approximately one week after release and a prominent Hollywood producer has already optioned the movie rights to this book.


About the book:
Reeling from a series of attempts on their lives, FBI agents Brady Moore and Alicia Wagner follow a trail of evidence that leads to a conspiracy a thousand years in the making. Finding clues in the dusty tomes of the Vatican's Secret Archives and the paintings of William Blake and Hieronymus Bosche, they plunge deep into a pit of evil ambition.

Trini Women

Hey all, I received the following joke in an email and simply had to share. Ladies, don't try this at home (unless absolutely necessary)

Three men were sitting together bragging about how they had given their new wives duties. The first man had married a woman from Barbados and bragged that he had told his wife she was going to do all the dishes and house cleaning. He said it took a couple days but on the third day he came home to a clean house and the dishes were done.
The second man had married a woman from Grenada. He bragged that he had given his wife orders that she was to do all the cleaning, dishes and the cooking. On the first day he didn't see any results, but the next day it was better. By the third day, his house was clean, the dishes were done and he had a huge dinner on the table.
The third man had married a Trini girl. He boasted that he told her that her duties were to keep the house cleaned, dishes washed, lawn mowed, laundry washed and hot meals on the table for every meal. He said the first day he didn't see anything, the second day he didn't see anything but by the third day most of the swelling had gone down and he could see a little out of his left eye. Enough to fix himself a bite to eat, load the dishwasher and telephone a landscaper.

Droppin' In

I haven't been around for a while. Keeping busy trying to finish a project at work since Monday. I'm about done in so I think I'll take a rest tomorrow (from working late that is). Saturday, I hope to tie everything up so that I can begin my Christmas preparations. Yup. Need to look for those curtains, finalise arrangements for Children's Christmas Treat, start looking for those presents, then there's the painting to be done, the cleaning, the shopping. Oy! *holds heads* Will continue this train of thought later.

Blessings and oh! Happy Thanksgiving to my US friends.

Well, I'm home today because quite frankly my house is surrounded by water. The rain's been falling heavily over the past couple of days and we're feeling the effects. It's the first time I've experienced anything like this. The house i used to live in was on a hill (no flooding there :D). At present the water is not high enough to get into the house. I hope it stays that way. I have really great neighbours though. They came through the water to check on us and help us move furniture (the men that is). I thought that was so cool. We're somewhat new to the neighbourhood so it was really appreciated.

On the bright side (got to look for that silver lining) I'll get to see the final game between Trinidad and Bahrain later on today. Yay!

Results:Trinidad (1):Bahrain(1)

As you can tell from above the game was a draw. We're disappointed but hey, there's still tomorrow. I've heard it said, from the experts, that we need to win by two clear goals to qualify. Here's hoping that we do.

Trinidad vs Bahrain (World Cup 2006 Qualifier)

History is hopefully in the making for my country as we prepare to play two World Cup qualifying matches against Bahrain on the 12th and 16th November, 2005. The first match will be played on our home ground so today there is a tangible air of excitement and expectation as we get ready for tomorrow’s match. Our national colours of red, white and black are very much evident today from Trinis wanting to show support. The last time we were this close to qualifying was in 1989 (?) when we lost our qualifying match to the United States (no hard feelings, people :0).

I admit I don’t really follow sports as such and don’t know much about football (soccer to some). For example, I still don’t understand what it means to be offside. I do know however that when the ball goes inside of the net it’s a ggggggoooooooaaaaaaalllllllll. We’re hoping for lots of those.

Real Men

Travelling home yesterday I saw these words written on the rear window of a maxi-taxi, “Real men seek the Lord”. Well, duh, you might say but I think that the author of these sentiments had a valid message. As far as I can tell there are more women in the church than men. Does this mean that it’s easier for women to get saved than men? If so, why? This lead me to thinking about the authority that God has placed in man. Does it make it harder to submit to God? God’s order of the family is Himself first, the husband and then the wife. Do women find it easier to submit to God than men do as a result? I know there are probably other factors that would affect this decision but I’m just thinking here.

Nevertheless there really is something special about a man that is able to put away pride and allow the Lord to direct his life. He takes his example from Jesus who despite His own authority submitted himself to the will of the Father. And hey, what god-loving, god-fearing, Holy-Ghost-filled single girl wouldn’t want that?
