  1. https://edition.cnn.com/middleeast/live-news/baghdad-airport-strike-live-intl-hnk/index.html It looks like it's getting worse there, unfortunately.
  2. In case anyone hasn't seen the news recently, the American embassy in Baghdad was attacked yesterday by Iranian-backed militia members and their supporters. What played out eerily resembled a scene from my work in progress, right down to the "Death to America" chants (in my book, that was a headline in an Iranian newspaper right before a similar riot). Unlike in my book, however, the local Iraqi "guards" let the militia members walk into the Green Zone, where they are apparently still camped just outside the embassy and laying siege to it. I'm still in the Middle East, but not Iraq, if anyone's wondering. I'd like to put in a prayer request for the American diplomats in the embassy there.
  3. Merry Christmas from the Middle East!
  4. I'm overseas in the Middle East and, instead of paying for local cable, use Netflix, Amazon Prime and, now, Apple TV+. I also have a smart TV which has a few Android-compatible programs and can play Netflix, etc.
  5. Hi, I'd be interested in reading it and have some familiarity with both Tennessee and England (although not York), as well. If you'd like, you could beta read the entirety of my novel, Under the Crescent Moon, in exchange. It's about 55k words at the moment.
  6. I think he was even more evil than Bin Laden. His last act of murder was to kill three of his children when he detonated his suicide vest.

  8. Yes, nowhere is really safe anymore.
  9. If you're following the news today, the U.S. just killed Al Baghdadi, the self-declared "Caliph" of Islamic State, in Syria. If you're anywhere in the Middle East (or Europe, for that matter), the next few days might be a good time to avoid crowds, etc.
  10. Maybe they just lose track of them. It's not like they had Facebook in those days....
  11. Hi -- I saw this today and just sent you the novel via email. -- B.K.
  12. Thanks for posting this. Did you ever figure out how to make the font size bigger when you compile in Scrivener? It always seems a bit small for reading.
  13. I've been using Scrivener exclusively for a year or so now.
  14. Hi, 180Turtle! Glad to hear you are interested in my book. If you'd like to be a beta reader, send me a PM with your email address.
  15. Hi, Becky. I just sent you a PM....
  16. Hi -- I tried sending you a chat; let me know if you got it.
  17. Thanks for your interest! The book is already finished and available as a PDF; send me a chat message if you'd like to be a beta reader.
  18. Just checked it out -- it's nice. I think the lyrics in most songs are what distract me.
  19. Hmm ... it looks like you can only attach photo-type attachments. What about PDFs?
