Reviews, Interviews and views (updated)

Thank you to blogger Cy Weiss for the 4-star review of House Divided. Weiss wrote, “The philosophical discussions of the Palestine/Israel conflict alone are worth the read, and as someone not highly versed in the conflict, I appreciated Pollak’s balanced and nuanced views. Overall four stars, a book I recommend reading for its strengths.”

And thank you to Dee of Mum’s Writings Mystery and More who posted an interview with me on her website @

And thank you to Audrey Austin of Small Town Authors for featuring me on her website for September. Here’s the link: My small town is the village of Speculator in Hamilton County New York which is where I spend my summers.

And “thank you” to everyone else who has read House Divided and contributed reviews to Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Goodreads, Facebook, etc.

I visited Market Block Books on River St. in Troy, NY for the first time. It is part of the publishing and sales operation of Book House of Styvesant Plaza in Albany that also includes The Troy Book Makers, a publishing operation with more than 300 books in print. The store’s staff are very friendly, the lay out makes it easy to find what you’re looking for, and in case that includes a copy of House Divided, they have signed copies on the local authors’ bookshelf.

Are you a member of Amazon Prime–the service that allows you to borrow ebooks to read on your Kindle? If so, you can now borrow a copy of House Divided. Unlike a library, there’s no due date so you can take as long as you need to read the book.

The Expendable Man: Still Number One to Many Readers

When getting feedback from readers, I often hear ‘I liked your latest book, but The Expendable Man is still my favorite.’ If you haven’t read The Expendable Man, it’s easy to find a copy. If you living in upstate New York, visit The Open Door in Schenectady or Mysteries on Main Street in Johnstown for signed copies. Otherwise, e-book and print versions are available from both Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
