Review of “Awethology Light” & “Awethology Dark”

Honored to have my short story “April Showers”, part of the Awethors Dark Awethology, recognized in this excellent review.

I have read an amazing number of indie books this year. When I looked back at my reviews I was surprised. The realization I had read so many started me thinking about the ones I remembered.

“The Girl in the Woods” by Gregg Olsen

Birthing a Book: The Launch of “Riddle”

On Sunday June 21, 2015 I launched my second book, “Riddle”. She “weighed” in at a whopping 326 pages. That’s quite a bit larger than her older sister, “View From the Sixth Floor: An Oswald Tale” who was a tiny 212 pages. I hope older sister won’t feel too threatened by “Riddle”; after all “View” has 48 reviews already and has a delightful 4.5-star rating … Continue reading Birthing a Book: The Launch of “Riddle”

However I think “The Railroad” is … Continue reading “The Railroad” by Neil Douglas Newton
