New Release: “The Yiddish Gangsters Daughter” by Joan Lipinsky Cochran

Excerpt, “A gripping family drama in which a daughter has to confront the mystery of her father’s criminal past. Gritty and realistic and hard to put down.”

Good review, good sounding book 🙂


The Yiddish Gangster's Daughter (A Becks Ruchinsky Mystery Book 1) by [Lipinsky Cochran, Joan] Daughter was just released on and print.

A woman’s life is endangered when she learns her father was a member of the .

Since separating from her philandering husband, Boca Raton writer Becks Ruchinsky has struggled to build a closer relationship with her quirky and contentious father, Tootsie, who lives in a retirement home. One evening, as she and her father are relaxing on the home’s front porch, an elderly woman accuses Tootsie of having murdered her husband fifty years earlier.

Tootsie admits to ratting on the man, who’d cheated their Jewish syndicate boss out of thousands of dollars, but denies killing the widow’s husband. He also admits to having friends in the Jewish mafia and shares stories about his experiences. But the more time she spends with her father, the more convinced Becks becomes that Tootsie is lying…

One Heart

Short, simple, beautiful 🙂

Via author Regina Puckett

sad girlOne Heart

Regina Puckett


We dance without touching

We hold on without clutching

We twirl around without moving

We say yes without approving

You and I are two worlds apart

Two bodies but only one heart

Your Own Uniqueness

Your Own Uniqueness, by prolific writer Regina Puckett – a short wonderful poem 🙂

Regina Puckett

49212313 - small cat with big angry male lion shadowYour Own Uniqueness

Regina Puckett


Do you ever try to be someone other than you

Twisting yourself inside out to be someone new

Until one day you look at yourself in the mirror

All you see is a confused imposter and a bad error

So what do you do now with this confused mess

It’s time to figure out who you are and confess

That you were just fine with who you were before

So discover you and let your own uniqueness roar

Find Something

Wonderful poem & thoughts from author Regina Puckett 🙂

Regina Puckett

Find Something

Regina Puckett


I came into the world – weary

Often downhearted and teary

I waited with such anticipation

Expecting something from creation

But each day creation waited for me

It wanted more than for me to just – be

It actually expected me to mark my place

It wanted me to put a smile on my face

To paint in bold strokes and a glad heart

To offer a helping hand and take part

And on those l days when I’m tired

Find something to keep me inspired

Re-branding Instagram account

Rebooting this not just cause of the great street photography shots from Tom Plevnik, but also because he’s pondering some adjustments in regard to his various media presences – hope that’s the right word 🙂 . Well worth a look into his newest #BWPhotography, plus maybe you’ll have some insight to offer him – all the best everyone! 🙂

What does one do when they decide to focus more on a specific genre and less on what they’ve built their feed and following on? Do you keep your previous posts public so new followers get a sense of where you come from, or do you demolish your feed with proverbial dynamite and start all over? Do you ditch your old account entirely and create another one, starting the process of gaining followers all over again? Or do you try to juggle multiple accounts, all displaying a different side of your work?

Btw… 48 days till Warszawa

Unusual poem. Susanne writes horror and suspense so was always wary line to line, lol; still thought it intriguing enough to want to repost – hope u give the short poem a quick read, and maybe a long thought, wondering: why? 🙂



I’m having a bad dream,

no, maybe a nightmare,

of a washing machine.

It wakes me up at night.

It rumbles and whispers.

I hope it won’t take flight.

It’s moving and grooving

to a beat of its own,

that is far from soothing.

It’s a horrible sight.

A machine set to hard.

It’s ready for a fight.

I scream into my pillow.

“My clothing is all too clean,”

then I weep like a willow.

I read book 1, really enjoyed it, and just thinking about a follow up makes me smile. There’s wry humor and real danger in Christoph’s first tale and based on the included excerpt in this post, looks to keep on continuing 🙂

The paperback copies can already be purchased from

If you want an ARC (Advance Review Copy) I can send you the mobi file.

In a few weeks from now Eurovision will take place in Lisbon, so when better to release this book?

Here are the blurb and an excerpt:

On her return from a cruise ship gig Bebe Bollinger learns that fellow Welsh singer Bonnie Tyler has decided to enter a European Song comptition for the UK. While Bebe jealously watches the pre-publicity trail for ‘Eurovision’ in Malmö, a string of ‘odd accidents’ endangers several participants of the competition. This stirs her desire for playing detective again but also a curiosity to check out the suitability of Eurovision for her own career.
