Review of "The Poison of Thorns" by Robert Dennis Wilson

Well, with Christmas over, I finally got to sit down and finish reading Robert's novel. With working on possible book covers, I was pressed for time and was only able to read specific sections of the book in order to gain ideas for the cover art. I finally finished reading it.

Robert has crafted an inspiring story of how two brothers can suffer the same past, but end up following two separate life paths. The spiritual quality of this story is marvelous. As I read various chapters of…

Graphic Novel Friday Amulet The Cloud Searchers

Amulet is a really good YA graphic novel. I am jumping into the story a little late with book three, but so what, this is just fun. I want to get all the info out of the way first that way we can just discuss the

graphic novel and enjoy ourselves.

“In the third installment of the thrilling Amulet series, Emily, Navin, and their crew of resistance fighters charter an airship and set off in search of Cielis, a mythical city believed to be located…

Success Stories: The Key To Success Is Within Everybody's Reach

The greatest success in life is not measured by fame or wealth but rather by the state of happiness and contentment you experience throughout life's ups and downs.  And so a most accurate instrument of measure when it comes to success is the number of times you smile a day...  

And since smiling is free and effortless and reaching, that state of 'well' being is within everybody's reach...

All you need is to discover the fountain of eternal youth, the one that will have you…

Digital short Satrurday A.J. Pompano The Sanibel Slouch (My First Kindle Read)

I know it isn’t Saturday, and yes I am happy to admit that The Sanibel Slouch by A.J. Pompano is the first read on my new Kindle. Am I trying to brag? No, I am fortunate to have received it as a gift from my children. What I am trying to do is bring this blog and my reading habits up to speed. I had plenty of doubts about whether I was going to enjoy using this device to read. I mean to not hold a book in my hands and enjoy it. I have to say it was a win-win for me as I got…

Karl's Fiction

     Hi, my name's Karl Larew.  I'm a semi-retired history professor at Towson University, specializing in military history and philosophy of history.  I have six novels on; one of them is also on Barnes and Noble (Nook) and Smashwords.  I'm talking about "Candles in the Window," a psychological study of the sex/love lives of a bunch of college students at the University of Connecticut in the 1950s.  Feeling the generation gap, they form an artificial family for mutual…

Matt Haig The Radleys

I am not a big vampire guy and really don’t read that much of the genre. My saying anything about this being a typical vampire novel would be incorrect and impolite. What this novel is though, is just plain flat out

fun and a very good read. The Radleys try to be the every neighbor, the middle

of the road couple, the average family, but they are anything but that; they

are abstaining vampires. Fun, frivolity, family soap opera, fast paced action

are what…

A Thrilling New Book With Mojo

Review by Lauren S. Smith

When you've got time to curl up on the sofa and remain uninterrupted for awhile, pick up Kris Sedersten's new book, Mojo - a mystery-thriller with mind-griping paranormal overtones. In "good versus evil" thrillers, Mojo is one that you won't want to put down until you turn that very last page - and you might discover that you've been holding your breath for awhile.

Book Review - Demon: A Memoir by Tosca Lee

For me, it’s hard to find compelling Christian fiction that can hold my interest. I became a fan of Tosca Lee when I met her about a year ago at a writer’s meeting and purchased a copy of Havah: The Story of Eve.

Havah opened my eyes to how beautifully Christian fiction could be written

without coming off preachy. In the same lines of Ted Dekker, Tosca knows how to

write compelling fiction…

Auld Lang Syne

It's interesting to see where your mind takes you when it is lulled back into familiar routine. Today at my job I had the old song, 'Auld Lang Syne' stuck in my head. At least, I had the melody and some of the words. I decided to look it up, to learn a little about this 'Auld' song to see what it's origins were. I was surprised to find that it dated back at least to the 1600's in Scotland. A gentleman named Robert Burns found some of these old verses and translated… Continue
