Ebook Review – The Island – Jen Minkman

Its rare that I will review a second book by an author whose first book I reviewed so recently, but it shows how much I enjoyed Shadow of Time, Jen Minkman's first novel that I was so happy to review her second book, another YA story, this time a shorter dystopian novella, which is out on 1 June 2013.

Jen Minkman writes extremely well for her audience, and The Island is most definitely a book which will appeal to YA readers, there is the merest hint of romance, but it is just a hint and the story mainly focusses on the relationships and society of a group of divided people living on an Island.

Four stars, but I wish it had been a novel.

EBook Review – The Haunting at Blackwood Hall – Barrymore Tebbs

The Haunting at Blackwood Hall

The Haunting at Blackwood HallA well written classy period novel – as someone who wouldn't normally chose a period book I was pleasantly surprised with this ghostly tale. I cant say I was at any time actually scared, but the characters are well written, with flesh on their bones and enough suspense builds up through the story to keep you coming back for more!

I couldn't help but feel our main protagonist a young woman called Claire was more forthright and outspoken than a woman in her position as a governess in a large house could have ever been. But that it was needed for the ebb and flow of the story to be continued.

Ebook Review – Dark Secrets – Matthew W Grant

The Devil always gets his due!, and this YA horror is full of satanic nastiness! I really enjoyed this book, it fulfilled all the criteria for a horror book! It has as said above satanic horrors, suspense and some thoroughly nasty people, and of course some stooges who you want to scream at!

Well written and extremely well edited Dark Secrets is one of a new breed of really good high quality books making their way through the mire of self-publised e-books.

Ebook Review – CIA Fall Guy – Phyllis Zimbler Miller

CIA Fall Guy - A Spy Thriller

CIA Fall Guy - A Spy ThrillerThis author sure can spin a yarn! CIA Fall Guy is exactly my kind of book, enough action and intrigue to keep you guessing the whole time, with a decent sprinkling of romance and relationships to keep you turning the pages.

The book is well written, and very fast paced, there are times when it seems almost a little too fast, the words spat out at machine gun pace, but that I think is the skill of the author, the more you read, the more you want to read, so the faster you read!

Why Focusing on Kindle Ebooks Makes Good Marketing Sense for New Authors

As a new author you obviously want to get as many people as possible to read your book. Given this goal, at first glance it may seem equally obvious that you want to sell your ebook on as many online ebook retailer sites as possible.

I’d like to explain why this is not necessarily the best response, and to add that my opinions are based on my own experiences.

To start with, unless you are blessed with a personal assistant, you will have to be the publicist for your own book. It’s a trade-off – each hour you spend promoting your book is an hour you spend away from writing your next book.

EBook Review – Clutch (I am Just Junco) – J A Huss

Clutch - J A HussAlthough not your traditional thriller, Clutch is a rare find.  Set in the future, 2125 to be more exact you follow nineteen year old Junco Coot described as “the most foul-mouthed, unpredictable and ruthless sniper the Rural Republic” as she is dragged into a journey of self discovery.

My first thoughts were that it was slow to get started, but this was quickly dispelled as the twists and turns arrive fast and furiously, the author J.A Huss does a delightful job of drawing the reader in, with her descriptive scenes and colourful language, giving enough intrigue to keep you hanging and wanting more.
