Spiritwood by George Wise - Book Review

This book gave me those goosebumps all up and down my arm while reading this book. But the funny thing is that, it was one of those books that once you started to pick up on the story line you did not want to put it down. I got to say it was creepy, scary, crazy good, but just to be honest not a book that I would pick up again. Every character in this book was connected to a forest and an ancient indian story contained within. It takes you a minute to connect the dots and the authors gives you very provocative scenes that will have you putting this book down at the same time picking it up just to get more.

The first character you meet is Jed and his vibe was very hard to read. He is an prominent artist who makes huge reset in his life by buying an house in Spiritwood to get in touch with his artistic roots. From here, you start to learn of all the characters and you see how they all become connected in this quaint little town. Janet is young woman who is very frail and in a marriage that had me feeling sorry for her.   Henry was the one person who was creepy to me but kept me guessing.

Sinful Secrets By M'hogany - Book Review

Secrets? Yes there are tons of them throughout the book that I like to call an error in miscommunication, but the sinful part is where you completely lose me.  The way I saw it there was only one sinful person in this story and he just got beneath my skin because his secret was the reason that everything and everyone around them was affected.  In this story the book centers around a young woman named Symone who I saw, had a good life, a nice family, and long term goal that is starting to become fulfilled.  She even finds the need to help out a friend and I found that this woman had everything she wanted except she had a hidden desire, a hidden voice that took the help of her friends to find.

What's Your Totem?

What’s Your Totem? by Melissa Price Have you ever had the occasion to keep noticing something? Perhaps it’s an item or an animal that appears wherever you travel or whenever you visit a particular place. This phenomenon surged into my life last week at the Southern California coast. While it wouldn’t be entirely unusual to view a dolphin, a seal, a sea lion, or even a shark in those waters, would it make you think if you saw only one of those species – repeatedly? How about continually? Whether I was walking, standing on the beach, or looking out from the pier, a seal came to greet me. Daytime or night, regardless of the spot where I found myself, seals appeared. Aptly named, Seal Beach was where I had my sendoff encounter with the largest of any I had seen. Strolling along the pier on a clear cool evening, I leaned...

Is the Indie world headed for a literary Armaddeon?

There are titans vying for control and Indie authors are like the David's of our time. The titans don't go by the names of HarperCollins or Penguin Random House. Those folks are still in shock that we dared to, with the help of Amazon and Smashwords, come forth like a dark horse and break every fence that exists with the e-book phenomena, but they may have the last laugh. Anything that builds too fast can have weak legs and the sheer weight may bring it tumbling down. Thousands of writers have been walking in the desert for years with no home for their novels. Finally, they had a mechanism to share their hard work that had been shunned by the old guard. Even insightful authors who wrote for big houses saw the opportunity. They took their backlists and tried again in the new frontier. Their fans followed. No more waiting two...
