Referendum in Ukraine

As no one can possibly have missed, russia is in the process of organizing a referendum. The fact that they organized it in another country makes it more unique. The fact that the subject is whether the folks voting in the referendum want to join the russian federation makes it even more unique. Note that my use of the word ‘unique’ is not to be interpreted in a positive manner. Continue reading →

Pricing issues

As much as I like helping others, giving away my books for free makes no sense to me. As it turned out, at bol.com I virtually did just that.

Due to the excessive amount that bol.com takes off my profit, I was giving away each book at €0.60 per copy, which is a steal on their behalf as I see it. As a result of this, I decided to no longer sell my paperbacks via bol.com but only at bravenewbooks.nl. Obviously, sales of ebooks and pocketbooks continue via bravenewbooks.nl and ebooks via amazon.com (Nuremberg and The Big Day).

That said, I am reconsidering the pricing for my ebooks. I’ll keep y’all posted.

Educate russian tourists?

Since the unprovoked invasion of and war from russia* against Ukraine, relations between the EU and russian federation have been at a historic low, at least since the cold war ended about thirty years ago. Many rich russian folks, certainly those aiding and supporting the putin** regime, have found travel restrictions to the EU and US. Continue reading →

Paperback time! (…the sequel)

The great Amazon has since a few years problems delivering print-on-demand paperback books within Europe. Sure I can order a paperback to my summerplace in Spain with no problems and delivered within days. But getting one out to Sweden, where I live, is not possible for the great Amazon. Mid 2022, they still blame it on Covid…

So I struck deals with two publishers, Amazon.com for the North American market and BreaveNewBooks.nl for the European markets. The content of BraveNewBooks is forwarded to other large bookshops such as bol.com. Continue reading →

Sovjet V2.0

Impossible to ignore today (feb 2022) is the invasion of russian troops into the sovereign state of Ukraine. Note the intentional spelling of russia without a capital first letter, as of now russia does not deserve that capital letter. ‘Troops’ in this sentence are regular army, navy, and airforce.

Preliminary reading news!

Yup, indeed, another new book is on its way!
Once again, it is by me!

Update, 2022-06-28:

The writing of the new book is done! Now there’re only a review and layout issues to address before publication. The title, you may ask, here you go:

The Deep

It will first come out as Paperback, followed by Ebook a little later.


You may want to find out more about it, or even be interested in reading it! But you’ll have to hold your horses for it to be written and published first. Even though I’m on it, it still is a work in progress and far from done. I’ll keep you posted!

Reading news!

Yup, indeed, a new book has come out!
As they do all the time…
But this time it is by me!

You may want to find out more about it, or even be interested in reading it!

What is it about you may wonder? Well, here’s a short impression:

In the final months of the Second World War, a high officer in the German army is assassinated by the German resistance in an attempt to speed up the outcome of the war. When the war is finally over, German resistance groups lay down their arms and return to regular life. With that, assassinations cease – or do they? Continue reading →

Dawid Isaak

A well known name, at least out here in Sweden. Unfortunately, not as well known abroad as that might have impacted his case greatly and positively.

In 2001, Isaak, an Eritrean journalist and permanent resident and citizen of Sweden, was working in his former Continue reading →

US healthcare

What’s all that about you’ll wonder? Hear me out and I’ll try to explain.

The former, real, president of the US had a list of things he’d like to accomplish during his presidency. Obviously, every president has that but this one had put universal healthcare on his list. The item on his list would be known as Obamacare. A lot of effort and money was put into it and a lot of US citizens for the first time had access to healthcare worth its name and affordable.
