Even older sister Jennifer self-destructs on social media. #SFF #MG #Amquerying #Amwriting #writerslife #QueryTip #GetPublished #NewBook

Book Review: RESURRECTION WALK (2023), by Michael Connelly.
Full disclosure: I'm a huge fan of the author. He encouraged me on my own writing many years ago (Famous authors often do that LOL).
Connelly keeps getting better at his craft. Mickey Haller is someone we've gotten to know through books and TV. Character growth is the cornerstone of any novel. RESURRECTION WALK is a master class in taking a beloved character and adding new layers to love. #TheLincolnLayer #NewBook #FiveStars

Looks like a good read for transit and urban history fans...
"This book exists to explain, through maps that I’ve illustrated, just why public transit is so bad in North America. ...It wasn’t always like this. ...LA used to have an electric railway network four times the size of the modern London Underground, and Dallas’s old electric railway system used to extend all the way to Waco, 95 miles away."

I’m excited to announce my new book, Anarchist Atheist Punk Rock Teacher is now available to pre-order everywhere: https://www.earthislandbooks.com/product-page/anarchist-atheist-punk-rock-teacher-by-dan-mckee
Out June 16th on Earth Island Books, as the blurb says: it’s a memoir exploring the various ways in which anarchist philosophy, atheism, and a background in DIY punk rock influenced one conflicted teacher's approach to the classroom over twelve turbulent and thought-provoking years.
‘Anarchist Atheist Punk Rock Teacher' is more than just a memoir of some teacher you've never met. It is philosophy of education, of anarchism, of authenticity, and of life. Throw in some personal history, the deaths of both of his parents to deal with on top of juggling all the professional absurdities that come with the job (not to mention having to teach through a global pandemic), and you have all the earmarks of a biographical classic.
Sharing frontline insights which help explain why currently one in three teachers in England plan on quitting the profession, and the first-hand experience of being one of those very statistics, this memoir of struggle, grief, philosophy and hope tells a story of why, despite all its endless frustrations and inherent contradictions, there still might be no better job in the world than being an 'Anarchist Atheist Punk Rock Teacher'.
