Shadow of the Drill-review

A great review of Shadow. Please check it out, if you get a chance.

Kylies Bookapalooza

Shadow of the Drill is a very good, intense, and graphic story of a very sadistic killer; vigilante may be a more appropriate term.
Decker, Rudy, and Charlene make up the lead group and while they weren’t necessarily relatable they were very likable, and that is just as important in my book.

The story is slow going, but interesting enough that you want to keep readin. Around 80% in, shit gets intense and your heart starts thumping. You’re not really sure what’s going to happen and who will live or die.

This is around the same time that things get very graphic. I’m not one to get squeamish easily but I was cringing a few times. The writing is very well done and detailed, and you can almost feel the pain of this certain character (not naming names or specifics to avoid spoilers).

Over all I’d give this book 4…

Novy's Son by Karen Ingalls
* * *
From his early childhood, Murray Clark sought love and acceptance from his father, who was raised as the bastard child of a famous artist. Murray struggled with jealousy toward his younger brothers, and he questioned the morals and values of people around him.

As an adult, Matthew lived life his way, with years of lying, womanizing, and heavy drinking. Though married four times, did he ever find unconditional love? Would Murray’s high intelligence, his love for his two daughters, and his unique philosophy of life help him rise above his demons?

This is a behind the scenes look at one of my absolute favorite books. When I read Jazz Baby, I was swept away by the story and totally captivated by the character of Emily Ann. This is a book worth reading!

BEEM-WEEKS-PICI am so honoured and delighted (in Brit English I’m chuffed to bits! 😉 ) to be introducing one of my all-time favourite Rave Reviews Book Club authors today! Beem is a writer after my own heart – his characters and scenes leap off the page, straight into your heart and mind, triggering wonderful evocations of time, place & emotions. He’s also a massive supporter of other authors through his work as custodian of the RRBC catalog in his role as Review Co-ordinator, recording each and every review put up online by our wonderful members, not to mention his tireless promotion of others on social media. So glad to be your first first host on this tour, Beem, training that RRBC Spotlight on you and only you!
Take it away, my friend! 😀

Why I Choose to be an #Indie #Author #RRBC #RWISA

This is a fabulous article by Indie author, and founder/president of Rave Reviews Book Club, Nonnie Jules. If you are holding your breath, waiting for that traditional publisher to find your book among the thousands of submissions that they receive, you should pay attention to what she says.As for me: Indie loud, Indie proud, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.


The main reason is INDEPENDENCE.  I remember as a child dreaming of becoming a writer.  As I got older with a bit more knowledge under my belt, I dreamed of one day becoming a published author.  After having read many stories of how authors were rejected over and over again, and how hard it was to break into the publishing business, after a while, the thought completely left my mind.

Then one day (later in my life), I read an article about a self-published author who had become a New York Times Bestseller.  I’ve told the story before of how I reached out to her, how we communicated back and forth until I got to the part about her sharing with me her secrets, then all conversation came to a screeching halt (another reason there is now RAVE REVIEWS BOOK CLUB, where support and non-competition are both high priorities)…that’s…
