Book Review Burn Out

For those that review books I am going to assume we all know the feeling. We sit at our desk. Stare at our computer. We put the title in the post. We input in the book info and stare. We stare at the computer screen and our minds go blank. Our thoughts revolve around the land of  “YAY I LIKED IT” or maybe “IT WAS OK”, but no one wants to read that. Hell, I don’t want to read that!! No one is going to think about buying a book based on a review that says “yeah, it was good…. Read more »

Announcement and Party Info!

It has been a crazy month! With the LAST Authors After Dark convention (full post coming soon) and back spasms, it has been a wild ride! First off, some of you might have noticed a new member to the team! Heather has started posting and reviewing and I could not be more excited to have someone here to help me. This level of help comes with brilliant ideas! We decided to start doing live facebook posts to read excerpts from books! Sometimes it gets weird. Sometimes it gets sexy. Sometimes it will be bad.

Book Review: Chelsea Avenue by Armand Rosamilia

Book Review: Chelsea Avenue by Armand Rosamilia

Chelsea Avenue by Armand Rosamilia is thriller with some paranormal roots. Focused on a certain location with a mighty entity, who happened to have some serious sibling rivalry issues, Rosamilia takes you on a unique journey into the dark side. Chelsea Avenue is an entertaining read. I love horror and thrillers, especially when a paranormal aspect is mingled in. The point-of-views bounced around to different characters, all of whom survived a building fire at the club Murphy’s Law  in 1987. Rosamilia does a great job tying everything together and the ending was a lot of fun and pleasantly disturbing. The only… Read more »

Book Review: Mind Magic by Eileen Wilks

Book Review: Mind Magic by Eileen Wilks

Mind Magic by Eileen Wilks is the 12th book in her World of the Lupi series. Lily and Rule face an unknown foe and we learn more about the dragons…so awesomeness all around! Wilks never seems to disappoint. With her strong world building abilities, I am one second from away from being convinced she is some kind of wizard world building genius. Creating vivid images and unique challenges for her characters after the twelfth book in a series is a hard thing to do. Pointing out things that should have been obvious, yet never occurred to me, makes me giddy… Read more »

Book Review: Unbinding by Eileen Wilks

Book Review: Unbinding by Eileen Wilks

Unbinding by Eileen Wilks is the 11th book in her World of the Lupi series. I am a long time follower of this series and Unbinding didn’t disappoint. One aspect about the World of the Lupi series that stands out as unique, is the authors ability to shift the story to other characters while maintaining a fluid story line. It doesn’t happen regularly, as most of this series does focus on the Lilly and Rule, but when she does it, it is done beautifully. It creates a new depth and allows us to break away from Lilly and Rule’s individual feelings… Read more »

Plagiarism Rant aka WTF?

I am not going rehash the entire Laura Harner plagiarism thing again, but I wanted to add some light to the issues that are going on with plagiarism in the industry. If you want to see exactly what happened with the author that plagiarized another author (Laura Harner), you should just check out Jenny Trout at Trout Nation, because frankly she is a much better journalist then I could ever be and has laid out a great side-by-side comparison of the books (yes, BOOKS) in question. Go check it out and make up your own mind about it. Plagiarism: the act… Read more »
