Guest Post by Tessa Ditner, Author of Charlie and the Latex Factory

How on earth did you decide to write about London’s fetish scene? Are you mad? This book started as my Masters dissertation. I wanted to write about controversial British artists, like Damien Hirst (pickled sharks and diamond skulls), when my tutor set us some homework. We had to interview someone in an unusual place. I […]

Texas Jack by Bart Hopkins

This is one of those books that was really hard for me to write a review of. The storyline and writing is well done, but the author seemed to get lost a few times. At least a third of the book could have been cut and the story would have been just fine. It was […]

New Coastal Times by Donna Callea

Was this a humor book or a dark post-apocalyptic novel? That’s what I was left wondering when I finished this book. And then I realized that it was… both. There’s a lot of destruction in this book, the usual level you’re used to getting when reading a good book about a dark and dreary future, […]

This Moment by Judith Natelli McLaughlin

When the author sent this book to me a couple of months ago, it didn’t immediately grab my attention, but the description kept coming back to me so I gave up and just read the darn thing since it apparently wanted to be read so badly 🙂 At it’s heart, this book is a love […]

Guest Post by Suzanne Tyrpak, author of Rosy

(Warning: adult content) Writing Rosy – a Fifteen Year Journey Rosy: A Novel began as an assignment for a writing class. A short story poured out of me, but the words refused to stop flowing and the story demanded to be developed into a novel. The first draft took a few months to write, and […]

The Publicist by Christina George

Ever wish you could step behind the curtain and see what really happens at a publishing company? As an avid reader, I was happy when I saw this book and that it’s backdrop was a NY publishing house. Even better, it falls into what I would call “chick lit” or “women’s fiction”, a genre that […]

RUNNING by Patrice Fitzgerald

I really didn’t want to like this book, which is why it probably took me so long to read it after the author sent it in asking for a review. The premise sounded interesting, but I was just kid of “meh”. I was skimming through my pile of ebooks and decided to give this one […]

Edgewood (Edgewood Series) by Karen McQuestion

The author sent me a copy of this book with a request for a review. I’ve been a fan of her work for a while now, first reading some women’s fiction which was so amazingly well done that I still gush to folks about how good it was. Later on, she sent me a children’s […]

Guest Post by Paulette Mahurin, author of The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap

First let me say I am grateful for the opportunity to have this interview with you. It’s an honor. What are 3 things that you need to get your morning going? The sunrise, I don’t like getting up when it’s still dark out; a cup of something with caffeine in it, whether coffee or green […]
