Holy Island by L.J. Ross – Book Review

holy island
As a general rule I never post a review if the book (in my opinion) only merits one or two stars. I gave the following book one star on Goodreads and two stars on Amazon as the one and two stars respectively mean the same thing – “I did not like it.” So why do […] The post Holy Island by L.J.

Book Review: Sacrificial Lam by Gary Guinn

Book Review: Sacrificial Lam by Gary Guinn
Sacrificial Lam by Gary Guinn My rating: 4 of 5 stars Thoroughly enjoyed Sacrificial Lam by Gary Guinn. He certainly knows how to write suspense. I know it’s a cliché but this really was a “page-turner.” Reminded me of John Grisham and James Patterson. What, for me, makes it a slightly unusual thriller is the […] The post Book Review: Sacrificial Lam by Gary Guinn appeared first on Stephen Bentley. Original link

Indie Authors – Are Your Books Selling?

are your books selling
Well, are they? Are your books selling is a personal question to many indie authors. It is not a question often asked in public. It’s almost like asking a stranger, “Are your teeth false?” The reason I raise the question is twofold. One, I was recently contacted by an indie author who asked for help […] The post Indie Authors – Are Your Books Selling? appeared first on Stephen Bentley. Original link

Is Smashwords smashing words? I have discovered a lot about Smashwords. It’s a great tool for indie authors and many probably don’t use it or understand it.

I did try it out in the early […] The post Smashwords Smashing Words? appeared first on Stephen Bentley. Original link
