4.5 Stars for Curses from By Hook or by Book Blog


BY HOOK OR BY BOOK BLOG I really want to thank Kim for taking time to read and review CURSES on her blog called By Hook or by Book. Here's what she had to say: REVIEW:   Curses   is just one of those books that you come to the end and think “Now that was fun!” It’s creative, and original, and has one of the most likable main characters that I’ve come across. The book is split into three parts and I found the first two to be the most enjoyable. Martin is a character I wish I knew in real life. He’s intelligent, sweet and funny, and somehow maintains a calm demeanor even while dealing with crazy and unexpected supernatural happenings. I loved his relationship with Hannah, but his dealings with...

Dandelions Inspired 4-Star Review of Curses


JEN THOMAS ON - REVIEWER Jen Thomason's top shelf review site called Dandelions Inspired just published its in-depth review of my latest paranormal/mystery called Curses. Here's a sample of what she had to say: “Curses” is very different from anything I have read lately and is certainly a genre-defying novel. Martin’s funny and sarcastic personality, especially his inner dialogue, make this book funny and spooky all at the same time.  There are definitely some creepy elements, but Martin’s light-hearted reaction to everything that happens softens the spookiness and suspense. Ready for the entire 4-Star review? Head on over to Dandelions Inspired for the low-down. Jen's awesome review is also...

Book Review: Single Chicas


Single Chicas by Sandra C. Lopez is more than just a compilation of short stories. It’s a collection of good advice on love, relationships, and life. I like the way the author teaches the reader how to use rational judgment instead of blindly following one’s heart. Reading this book is like chatting with a close friend—someone who will tell you what you need to hear, not necessarily what you want to hear. Each story is only a handful or pages long, so you can set the book aside and pick it up later. But with Lopez’ use of stinging advise and whimsical humor you may find yourself reading cover to cover. 5-Stars for Single Chicas. Get a copy. Original link

4 Stars for Gumshoe


Ellis York is a private eye hired to find a missing person. Every character he meets has a past that keeps catching up with them -- and with Ellis. The book reads like a 1940s noir movie--something you'd expect on Turner Classic Movies. Author Michael Compton, an English professor at the University of Memphis, does a good job of capturing the mood and language of the era. An enjoyable read. 4-Stars. Original link

Shopping & More Shopping


I've almost finished my Christmas shopping for 2016. However, there's always one or two more things to consider. I'm sure you feel my pain. Speaking of shopping, I'm currently shopping my next book to publishers. Book number four is Geriatric Delinquents. Here's the elevator pitch:  Geriatric Delinquents is a rollicking, character-driven spoof about two sisters who oppose a local marijuana proposition. To their chagrin, their aging rock star brother brings his gravitas to town in support of the measure. The sisters counter with sabotage and sanctimonious resistance. (Imagine someone like Dolly Parton as the older sister, Goldie Hawn as the younger sister, and Mick Jagger as the brother.) Ger...

Book Review: Last Train from Perdition


REVIEW -- Last Train from Perdition is the sequel to I Travel by Night where we're introduced to Trevor Lawson, a vampire who happens to be a hired gun. Lawson is in the process of "turning", but he's fighting the urge for blood and trying to remain human. This sets him on a trail for LaRouge, the lady who bit him. By drinking every last bit of her blood, the vampire gunslinger can revert to human form. But Lawson has been hired by a rich family to track others. In Last Train, he and Ann are bound for Perdition in the great Northwest to bring home a wayward son. Honestly, a vampire gunslinger would never have appealed to me -- except that the story is told my Robert McCammon. Enough said, in...

Book Review - Spirits of the Bayou


REVIEW -- Luc has a gift--he sees spirits of the dead. One in particular. She's begging for help, not so much for herself, but for the others. And so for Luc, this gift feels more like a plague. Yet our protagonist can't sit idol and let children keep disappearing into the bayou. Or can he? Let's be clear, Luc isn't one of New Orleans finest. He runs with bad people. But once he discovers that he's not the only person with "the gift", he is taken in by someone who cares, and things begin to make sense. But how many children die before Luc figures out how to help them? If you like Louisiana mystique, stories of voodoo, with a few ghosts thrown in for good measure, you'll like Spirits of the B...
