Smashwords book reviews by Danielle Christine
on May 02, 2012
I didn't think this book was going to keep my kid entertained but it did. No zombies or supernatural stuff just straight ahead action when three boys get attacked and caught by a bigger gang. One of them is taken hostage and the other two have to get their act together and rescue him. I used to read stories like this when I was a kid. It's nice to there's a few still around. Reminds me a little of Lord Of The Flies--boys left alone to fend for themselves. Good read for kids.
- How to Get Your Book Published Without an Agent. A complete guide for finding a traditional publisher and writing a successful manuscript submission packet.
on May 04, 2012
Very useful book that gives you good tips about how to submit a good quality manuscript to a publisher. I also loved the list of traditional publishers that are currently accepting manuscripts directly form authors – I thought I found “all” these publishers myself doing a google search but I was quite wrong. If you are thinking of submitting your book to a traditional publisher you should get this book.
- Marketing Strategies for Self-Published Books. Everything you need to know about local, online and nationwide marketing strategies as well as self-employment taxes.
on May 04, 2012
I found this guide to be very useful. Not only does it list dozens of ways to promote your self-published book it also gives you tips about your taxes. I had no idea what stuff I can deduct as a self-employed / home based business owner. If I had known this before filing last years taxes I would have saved hundreds if not even thousands of dollars.
Bottom line - You'll get good low-cost or free ways to market your book. Most of which I did not come up with myself when thinking about marketing my self-published book. I would recommend this book to anyone who has self-published a book – fiction or non-fiction.
- WB & The 10 Good Things
on May 08, 2012
I bought this book to my daughter - for us to read it together. So far I have been very pleased. The story is written well and besides being interesting it also has a very valuable lesson to teach to your child. My daughter likes the book too. I would highly recommend this book to your children.
- Shard of Galahad: The Camelot Prophecies
on May 10, 2012
I read fantasy books quite often and rarely am I this positively surprised as I was with Shard of Galahad: The Camelot Prophecies. The story is intriguing and well written, keeping you hooked from the beginning all the way to the end. The book reminded me of Lord of the Rings. This book is a good match to anyone who enjoys medieval fantasy or fantasy books in general. I am definitely looking for other books from this author.
- King Arthur's Legacy: The Camelot Prophecies #1
on May 10, 2012
If you enjoy fantasy/adventure books you will love King Arthur's Legacy by Lady Antiva. I am only few chapters in but this books has already delivered as I expected based on the authors other book I recently read (Shard of Galahad: The Camelot Prophecies). I would recommend to everyone who loves fantasy books.
- No Acne - The Dermatologist way to clear skin.
on May 21, 2012
I bought this book for my teenage daughter. It is a very clearly written guide on acne and its treatment. It not only describes different methods on how to treat pimples but also goes over some common myths and tips, including info about your skin and what causes acne. I was pleased with the book and would recommend it to anyone who suffers from acne.
- Boscutti's Elvis Presley (Screenplay)
on June 03, 2012
Boscutti's Elvis Presley was a comical story that made me laugh more than once. Based on a true story, this screenplay gives you a wild ride to the peculiar life and psyche of Elvis Presley. Stephen Boscutti is an interesting storyteller - he uses insightful and vivid ways to describe the scenes. If you are looking for something different, this comical screenplay delivers it.
- Duplicity - A True Story of Crime & Deceit
on June 14, 2012
Duplicity – A True Story of Crime and Deceit is an interesting true story that engaged me from the beginning. I still have hard time understanding that this really happened to someone – being married and sharing your life with someone who literally lived the most horrible double life you can imagine. The book is well written and describes Paul's story in-depth. I would recommend this book for anyone enjoying true or suspenseful stories.
- My Familiar Stranger: Romancing the Vampire Hunters (BLACK SWAN 1)
on June 26, 2012
This story looks for love in all the right places. It squeezes your heart, revs your anxiety, then leaves you with a big, satisfying sigh. Highly recommended for all you romance and/or paranormal lovers.
- MEHSIA'S MEDALLION: Gangsta Medieval
on July 03, 2012
This book is full of excitement, twists and suspense. I could not put it down after I started reading it. The storyline is excellent with intriguing characters and unexpected twists that you cannot see coming. A nice change to books that you guess the end after few chapters. The book ends in a way that I am hoping there will be a sequel. I cannot wait to read more and would definitely buy another book from this author.
- Positive Living Through Positive Affirmations
on Sep. 06, 2012
This is a fabulous and great book to use, as it has affirmations covering all categories/ areas of life. It has been very helpful to me and helped me revisit and straighten out my thinking. It serves as a great way to get an “attitude or mental check-up”. Reviewing and repeating these phrases has helped my attitude a great deal.
