“BAT SHIT CRAZY Review Requests: Email Humor” by Gisela Hausmann

  I’ve been a follower of Amazon Top Reviewer Gisela Hausmann’s “how to” books for a while. Her advice on writing effective e-mails, getting book and product reviews, and more have become a staple in my library. Her latest book, BAT SHIT CRAZY Review Requests: Email Humor, is more than a collection of humorous e-mails. Using humor, Hausmann shows readers what NOT to do when writing … Continue reading “BAT SHIT CRAZY Review Requests: Email Humor” by Gisela Hausmann

“Miriam’s Hex An Electric Eclectic Book” by Paul White

Within the first few paragraphs of Paul White’s novelette, Miriam’s Hex, I hated Miriam Chapman. She was the epitome of every nagging wife I’d ever read about. Her husband, Peter, plagued by Miriam’s demands, is a weary hard-working fellow who can’t seem to catch a break. Obviously under-appreciated at work, besieged by his wife’s demands at home, Peter elicits sympathy. What follows is a delightfully … Continue reading “Miriam’s Hex An Electric Eclectic Book” by Paul White

“She’s Not Gone” by Sarah Northwood

  As a domestic abuse survivor, I was eager to read this book by Sarah Northwood. She’s Not Gone is more than a story about spousal abuse; it is also a story of survival, with a paranormal twist.   The Prologue gives no hint to the story that follows. In fact, I had to return to it after finishing the book to understand the point … Continue reading “She’s Not Gone” by Sarah Northwood

“The Forest of Trees” by Anita Kovacevic

  I’ve long been a fan of the versatile author Anita Kovacevic’s writing. With her dark fantasy, The Forest of Trees, she proves she can tackle any genre. This is a richly imaginative story filled with good and evil, fairies, leprechaun, talking trees and animals, and a plethora of human characters.   Skillfully weaving the world of fantasy with the everyday lives of a family, … Continue reading “The Forest of Trees” by Anita Kovacevic

“Blind Acceptance” by Sandra Pimentel

Often memoirs are dry re-tellings of a person’s life. This is not true of Sandra Pimentel’s beautifully written Blind Acceptance. Beginning with her early years in Quincy, Massachsetts, Pimentel paints a picture of a multi-ethnic neighborhood in the 1940’s. Surrounded by her large, Italian family, she was blissfully unaware of the war that was being fought on distant shores or the poverty of her family. … Continue reading “Blind Acceptance” by Sandra Pimentel
