The Dark Traveler Comes

Hi Folks,

Sorry I missed posting last week, but as they say, “Life is what happens while you make other plans.”
However, we’re back on track this week. So, with that in mind, here’s what’s new for this coming week.

We are ready to release Dark Traveler at last. Our cover artist wasn’t able to meet the deadline, but our magical editor has managed to create a cover for the book. I think she’s done a fine job. So, here’s the cover.

Sometimes the thing you fear most is the one thing you truly need. Dale, a young thief on the run is surely in need.
This is an adventure story set in a medieval world. Dale is a transgender teen trying to survive on his own.
Look for Dark Traveler to appear in the next few days. I will post again when it goes live.

ROW80 check in:

I have to confess I haven’t written a thousand words in two weeks. Sigh. Life sure can get in the way sometimes. 

So, here we go again. I am going to shoot at four thousand words this coming week. I also want to get Dark Traveler up in time for the Transgender Day of Remembrance.

Well, that’s it for me this time. I will post again as soon as Dark Traveler goes live.


Book review, Keeper

Hey folks, it’s time for another book review.
This time I read Keeper by Kristine Williams. I quite enjoyed Keeper. The author has come up with a new twist on an old theme. I also love sci-fi and this is good sci-fi.
There was one plot problem that continued to bother me right up until near the end when it was all tied together neatly and made perfect sense. Whew! Keeper has action, suspense, and mystery enough to keep anybody reading through to the end.  Also, the constant attempts of the two main characters to understand each other, and themselves, provides endless entertainment. Here’s where to find it.
The one real problem I had with this book was the occasional difficulty in knowing which character was speaking. The odd “he said / she said” would have been helpful. Having said that, I am looking forward to further adventures of Alex and Evan.
I give this book four stars out of five. Happy reading.

Book Review: Stone Relics

Book Review: Stone Relics
The latest book I have finished is Stone Relics by Katy Walters.  This is another author’s first effort. I continue to be thrilled and amazed at the richness and scope of story conceived by new authors and Katy Walters is no exception. This is a rollicking good story that will hold your interest from beginning to end. The book does carry an adult warning.
Cover for 'Stone Relics'
There are a few issues to be aware of; the main characters need a bit more development earlier on. Also, the author can get a bit bogged down in repetitive police procedures, obviously a subject she knows well. Please do not let this stop you from reading this book. It is a great story with plenty of baffling twists and turns to the plot. It does hold up well, and I confess, I thoroughly enjoyed it. I look forward to further adventures of Ben and Lucy. Katy Walters is an author to keep an eye on; she is a spinner of fine tales. I’m giving this one four stars.
