Book Blast: The Failed Experiment by Mart Grams

Title: The Failed Experiment
Author: Mart Grams
Publisher: XLibrisUS
Genre: Social Science/Ethnic Studies
Format: Ebook

When the American government was founded, the Founders and Framers assumed a government “of the people, by the people, and for the people.” That government is dying. It is under the authority of not “we, the people” but rather a small elite that is trying to snuff out the great experiment of man ruling himself, the common man, the man that within the right system of government can attain his purpose to achieve happiness. Were the Framers wrong? Were the ideas of Alexander Hamilton right? Is man incapable of self-rule? Does he need to be taken care of, watched, manipulated? No! It is not a failed experiment! It is time to retake that government.


Married, two sons, had to endure sons to get granddaughters, 30 years of teaching in northern Wisconsin. Written three previous books: The Great Experiment, Economics for the Remnant, Words My Grandfather Gave Me, a fanatic of the American Dream, lives in small town with his wife Linda and their two cats, Miss Bailey and Stumpy.

Interview with V.W. Raynes, author of Twisted Venom

Title: Twisted Venom
Author: V. W. Raynes
Publisher: AuthorHouse
Genre: Suspense/Thriller
Format: Ebook

When young internist Claudia Ranelli attends a medical conference in San Francisco, she has a sexual encounter so bizarre and frightful it nearly kills her. But that isn't the end of her terror. Claudia and her cousin Dru Salinas must discover the identity of the person terrorizing them both, a quest that leads from pit vipers to modern genetics. Claudia tells a gripping story with sensitivity, a humanly scientific perspective, eroticism and a wry sense of humor.


What was the craziest or most insane thing that happened to you in the book publishing process?
The whole process seems somewhat crazy to me, no matter how it's approached. I'm glad there are more options these days, but it seems like a difficult way to make a living.

How about the social networks? Which ones do you believe help and which ones do you wish you could avoid?
I'm not much of a social networking type of person, which will probably doom me to oblivion as a writer. Blogs are more interesting to me than other venues.
What is one thing you'd like to jump on the rooftop and scream about?
I'm, not a screamer anymore, but the IRS comes close. As far as screams related to writing, I don't have any.
What is something people may be surprised to know about you?
You ask hard questions. I'm thinking of writing a short story about a woman with Herpes (with a twist, if course).
What are 10 words that best describe you?
That's nine too many. I like the work "pithy."

V. W. Raynes is the pen name of a physician practiciing in Texas
