Wilson #Movie

AVAILABLE NOW!
RATED R 
95 minutes
AMAZON
Harrelson stars as Wilson, a lonely, neurotic and hilariously honest middle-aged misanthrope who reunites with his estranged wife (Laura Dern) and gets a shot at happiness when he learns he has a teenage daughter (Isabella Amara) he has never met. In his uniquely outrageous and slightly twisted way, he sets out to connect with her.

REVIEW: How did I not know about this film before now?!
It was funny, in parts. Woody Harrelson, as Wilson, was a sarcastic jerk but in a funny way not offensive. He really goes through the ringer in life and love. His neurotic ways have him clinging to the one new thing he has. A daughter he didn't know about.
It really is heartwarming in ways too. He may be quirky, weird even, but he so longs to make it right with his daughter.
The ending is a bit of a soft moment too. Those tender moments make a great way to end it all though.
I think anyone who watches this will enjoy it. It will surprise you in ways too. Was it a bl…

With A Twist by J.A. Konrath (29)

Kindle: 240 KBPrint: 32 pagesASIN: B005ES6U9I
AMAZON
This award winning 6000 word short story, originally published in Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine, features Konrath's stalwart Homicide cop Jacqueline "Jack" Daniels (Whiskey Sour, Shaken) in a puzzler of a mystery.

A body is found in a man's living room, the doors all locked from the inside. The victim had apparently been dropped from a great height.

How did he die? Who killed him?

Daniels and her partner, Herb Benedict, follow a trail of ingenious clues to solve this classic whodunnit. Are you clever enough to solve it first?


About the Author J.A. Konrath is the author of the Jacqueline “Jack” Daniels series that includes “Whiskey Sour,” “Bloody Mary,” “Rusty Nail,” “Dirty Martini,” “Fuzzy Navel” and “Cherry Bomb.”

The world of the Lunar Chronicles comes alive in this thrilling continuation of Wires and Nerve. Iko—an audacious android and best friend to the Lunar Queen Cinder—has been tasked with hunting down Alpha Lysander Steele, the leader of a rogue band of bio-engineered wolf-soldiers who threaten to undo the tenuous peace agreement between Earth and Luna. Unless Cinder can reverse the mutations that were forced on them years before, Steele and his soldiers plan to satisfy their monstrous appetites with a massacre of the innocent people of Earth.

And to show he's serious, Steele is taking hostages.

Cinder and Kai, Scarlet and Wolf, Cress and Thorne, and Winter and Jacin all feature in this epic new battle. But it is Iko who must face her deepest fears when she uncovers the truth about her own unusual programming. Questions of love, friendship, and mortality take Iko on an emotional jou…
