Book Review – The Crimson Deathbringer by Sean Robins

Do you think the Akakies will visit us soon? I do love a good joke. Well wow, you would not believe that this was Sean Robins first book! At the end when I read his short bio and discovered he's a teacher, that made sense - because the book, especially for a first novel, is… Continue reading Book Review – The Crimson Deathbringer by Sean Robins

Amazon kdp Select & advertising – is it worth it?

   Yes! Well in my experience anyway, and I've been an indie author for three years now.  In fact yesterday I removed some of my books from various other sites - from which I had zero sales, and put my books back onto kindle select. The reason? Well to make money of course.  The main reason… Continue reading Amazon kdp Select & advertising – is it worth it?

Only 3 weeks to go…

When you've spent most of your life... and you're 57 so that's a pretty long time... thinking that you're stupid and rubbish and an idiot, it can be hard to change.  I do believe I've come a long way to getting over low self-esteem but then in times like this, that old nagging voice "you're… Continue reading Only 3 weeks to go…

Review – Antiques and Alibis, by Wendy H. Jones

I have to begin by saying I think the book cover is great!  If you want a picture to draw you into a story, this one certainly does.  Its atmospheric black and white picture of a moonlit street simply shouts mystery and intrigue, a very good start for a detective novel! As the blurb tells… Continue reading Review – Antiques and Alibis, by Wendy H. Jones

Should we go to writers conferences?

Until this weekend I wasn't sure about writers conferences, plus I have discovered I am a terribly indecisive procrastinator!  I'm not sure, I'm going, I've paid, I've canceled, I've repaid... seriously, I must have driven the organizers crazy.  (Sorry Tanja!) Before today if you had asked me about a conference I would have answered you with umm's,… Continue reading Should we go to writers conferences?

The Innkeeper’s Son ~ K C Herbel

Images shown under the Fair Use Act for Critiquing As a Christian, I love it when I find a book full of morals.  One of my all-time favorites is the Narnia series by C S Lewis.  Clive Staples Lewis (1898–1963) states that Lewis was one of the intellectual giants of the twentieth century and arguably one of… Continue reading The Innkeeper’s Son ~ K C Herbel

Ruin’s Lot by ID Johnson

Over time, many authors have painted a different image of angels and demons.  I loved the film Michael with John Travolta drinking, smoking and smelling of cookies... ingenious.  Also, really enjoyed Constantine with Keanu Reeves, which was intriguing and spellbinding.  And City of Angels with Nicolas Cage, which was lovely and moving.  These are just to name… Continue reading Ruin’s Lot by ID Johnson
