Guest Post by John DiRicco, Author of Through

Why did you decide to become a writer? There are only 26 letters in the English alphabet.

Frosted Shadow, a Toni Diamond comic murder mystery (Toni Diamond Makeup Mysteries) by Nancy Warren

I’ve read some pretty craptastic cozy mysteries over the past several years. When the author sent this book in with a review request, I let it sit for quite a while. I just couldn’t wrap my head around how it wasn’t going to make me groan and gouge my eyes out with a spoon. I […]

The Day Before 9/11 by Tucker Elliot

Wow. I read a lot of memoirs. There are sad ones, happy ones, memorable ones, ones with a moral… this book had all of that and more. When this came in from the author with a request for a review, my first thought was, “oh man, not another 9/11 book”. I admit, that while 9/11 […]

Absolution: Book Three – Edgewood Series by Karen McQuestion

I love this series. Plain and simple. I could just stop my review there, I mean, really… anyone that’s read anything by Karen McQuestion has no doubt of her talent. The woman can write, her stuff is professionally edited, professionally laid out and, well… just one big chunk of professional. She is what self-publishing should […]
