Book reviews

Do you ever feel like your brain is empty and you don't know what to talk about? No? Well I do. Normally when it is blog day, I start out with an empty head and an empty computer screen and let my fingers dictate what I'm going to talk about. And sometimes I actually have something I want to share. However, I was born fourth in a family of all girls. That means that I often didn't get my turn to speak. I learned how to not speak. This makes it a challenge some days to speak. (Yes, I outgrew that in time, but there are still days . . .)

Anyway, the point here is that so many authors are looking for book reviews. It occurred to me that I should post an additional day (or two) each week with a book review. That way, even if I am having a "what am I going to pull out of my head today" day, I can still have something to write about.

So . . . {fanfare} announcing Book Reviews! Targeted mainly toward indie authors who deserve a chance to be represented (but not excluding better-known authors who I happen to enjoy reading).

In the meantime, for those of you who are following my writing journey, I've started Cinda's story. Once I got going, it came rushing through. I have some research to do - as is usually the case when writing a new story. In the meantime, the words are pouring out. Thanks to a program at the library, I can do some of my research next month, but that won't stop me from getting started!


  1. I wish I could do a decent job on Book Reviews. I certainly do enough reading. I do, however, draw a blank when I sit down to do a review. All of a sudden I can't quite remember the characters names or sometimes even the main plot of the story. It's very frustrating. Looking forward to your next book. I do enjoy your books (ha ha, except maybe not so much that one as I probably wasn't in the right mood). I do feel you are a good author.

  2. Thanks, Mario's mom. I think you'll like the next one. And while I'm waiting for my editor to go through it, I'll keep myself busy reading! (and writing Cinda's story)

  3. Would you consider reviewing the first in my Jesse Damon Crime Novel series?

    It's (very) small press, not indie.

    I am currently working on the 5th in the series.

    Here is the Amazon link:

    If you are interested, I can send you either a print copy or an e-copy.

    I lived on the south side of Chicago for a while, and I presently have 6 cats (none of them deliberately acquired)who are faithful assistants.

    Thank you!
