This was a freebie on Amazon and not my usual genre. I think it’s YA but turned into a murder mystery. The first few chapters before the shoplifting are boring as hell and I almost gave up as it’s full of teeny prep school dynamics with rich kids vs poor kids, etc. As a writer [...]
This is an earlier novel by Mr. Archer. Dumb title, but I picked it up at a garage sale. I enjoy his recent stuff much more. It has a slow start about the KGB and bankers and a British Army officer (plenty of background). The story has to do with an art forgery and a [...]
When Juliane flew over Peru with her mother the plane encountered a wild thunderstorm and the plane exploded. Juliane, still attached to her seat was flung out and plummeted 10, 000 feet into the Peruvian jungle. Freaky, indeed. She followed the #1 rule of survival which is follow the water courses. There isn’t much here [...]
I’ve decided to try and increase sales of my eBooks by reducing their prices. My firefighter mystery/suspense novels are $4.99 and my juvenile/chapter eBooks are $2.99. I also have a juvenile for .99 cents until June. Why? Well, everyone’s downloading the Hunger Games @ $5.00 so I have to compete and undercut Suzanne Collins. Sorry [...]
American Scott Wallace, a Nat’l Geographic writer, accompanies an expedition trying to find one of the last primitive tribes in the deep Amazon, a dangerous one, the Arrow People. FUNAI the Brazilian native affairs dept. doesn’t contact them anymore and give them pots and stuff as they are too susceptible to disease just like in [...]
I deleted the original review. I’m hoping it was the title that attracted all the spam. Dr. Seuss’s first book was rejected twenty-four times. “too different from other juveniles”. Sales of his children’s books have soared to 100 million. So, I figured I’d take a swing at The Cat In The Hat as I do [...]
Getting It Published: A Guide for Scholars and Anyone Else Serious about Serious Books by William Germano I recently wanted information on the publishing industry, so i picked up this book about getting it published. The book focuses mainly on publishing for scholars and somewhat avoids trade publishing. I grabbed it for mainly information on trade publishing. this book [...]
This is a pretty good read with a lot of dynamics going on. Lawyers and cops and victims families work together to put away a rich serial killer. Everyone knows the perp did it but proving it is difficult. As a writer and a reader, I’m recommending this one on my website too.
I expected more from this author. I didn’t really connect with the story and I don’t know why. The plot should’ve been enough for thriller category but ended up as ‘thriller lite’. Brad Meltzer has a TV show ‘Brad Meltzer Decoded’ where he unravels old secret codes and stuff, like the group who gave the [...]
