LaVerne is love.

Has anyone heard anything lately about the western novel LaVerne was working on?

No but the web page with the ten thousand word excerpt is still up. ( I think.) You.. DO know about the web site don’t you?

I remember seeing a little snippet of it...somewhere, I don't remember where. Would you mind posting a link to it?

Also, is Spooner Briggs the guy "spoonerisms" are named after?

Hmmm, I don’t know if I should….. well OK!

It's still there although she took most of the except down. There is only about 800 words up now. But it's 800 words of deathless LaVern prose.

Incidentally I’ve emailed her once or twice to explain why I had a problem with her stuff. It’s not the writing I take issue with or her mistakes with Publish America. Sure she’s a horrible writer, her ideas are (mostly) borrowed from a hundred worn out plots and genres. MY big problem with LaVern is her supreme arrogance to self review her stuff. That’s just cheating

But, to her credit she has pulled the book and her reviews. I’m going to send her a thank you note. Anyone else?


Spooner Briggs was the commander of the 282 half-brig “The Mary Celeste.” In 1872 it was found adrift, the crew and Mr. Brigg’s family missing. There is much more to this story, most people probably know about it from innumerable Bermuda Triangle specials. The real story is just as bizarre and has little to do with strange waves or UFOs.
