The Woodcutter by Kate Danley

I read this book while holidaying in Cypress. I finished it in two days which is a reflection of how good it is. I can spend months reading a book I’m not keen on and have been known to cheekily take a sneak peak at Wikipedia for the synopsis to bluff my way through a Reading Group evening…. The story was beautifully written and at one point I thought to myself it was like poetry. I’m not a fan of poetry normally but the way the story unfolded evoked emotions…

Review of Blackrayne by Nathyn Brendan Masters

I was asked to do this review on the Amazon discussions site. I didn’t want to because I don’t think I should do a review unless I can honestly give four or five stars.

I am extremely forgiving of spelling and grammar errors, so if you find any,…

The Night Watchman Express by Alison DeLuca

I enjoyed this one! As an independent author, I am eager to help and read other indie authors. I set up a Fantasy Kindle Book Group on Kindle on Amazon discussions and also belong to the ABNA Writers Group on Facebook. Now I’ve read quite a few books over the months and I came across some books which, ahem, I was very disappointed with but Allison DeLuca’s book is most definitely NOT in that category. The Night Watchman Express kept me interested throughout the book. This is the book that…

How not to respond to a review / Rebecca Black / Libya/ Japan/Ceri Clark/ Connie J. Jasperson/ Alison DeLuca/ Marilyn Rucker Norrod/

How not to respond to a Review The internet was abuzz with how not to respond to a review this week. An author had submitted her book to a reviewer and took exception to what the reviewer said. Now I don’t condone what the author did. It did seem very unprofessional to me but I don’t know what is happening in her private life. She just seemed to have lost it. The thing with reviews in my limited experience is that people either get your story or they don’t. This…
