Tired of ordering in Thai food and watching a Netflix on Saturday nights? Don’t despair. Finding true love isn’t impossible as long as you view the entire world as one big singles bar. Walking your dog, practicing yoga, riding mass transit, buying a book, even visiting a friend in the hospital can lead to the woman of your dreams.
Critically-acclaimed novelist/playwright Gary Morgenstein provides the romantic roadmap in his new book, How to Find a Woman...Or Not. We interviewed Gary to find out why men have a hard time finding that right woman and how his book can fix that.

Unbelievable as it may sound, but an incredibly lucky novelist by the name of James Hayman had his first book published by a major New York publishing house. St. Martin's Minotaur, in not one but a two book deal, made The Cutting their lead title for July 2009.
To begin the book campaign, they assigned a staff publicity person to help promote it. In the month before publication, Minotaur sent nearly two thousand advance reader copies out to reviewers, bookstore owners and other key influencers. This certainly paid off because The Cutting was named to the American Booksellers Association... Read More
What would happen to our society if the horrors of so many movies were to become reality and the rotting corpses of the dead began to roam the Earth, hungry for living flesh? Who knows?
