  1. You got a lot of great books! I also got Outpost this week and have a few others in my TBR. Happy reading!

  2. Hi, I heard what you said about my novel One Shot Away. I can understand that you might not be interested in the subject matter but I thought your comment was a bit mean spirited. There's lots of young wrestlers out there pouring their hearts and souls into the sport and I'm hoping they will enjoy the novel. Also, those of us who love writing and reading, hey, we need to stick together. Best, T. Glen Coughlin

    1. I don't understand how my comments were mean-spirited. Like you said in your comment, I'm simply not interested in the subject matter and that was pretty much all I said.

      I also offered your book out to my readers in case there's someone out there who really wants to read your book and could be a champion for it. I'm not that person, so wouldn't you rather I give the book to someone who does want it rather than have it sit on my shelf gathering dust?

      I apologize if you thought my comments were mean-spirited and I meant no disrespect to you or wrestlers around the world. Hopefully this clears things up for you.
