Smashwords book reviews by Martin Peltz

  • The Indecent Proposal (Short Story) on June 19, 2014

    What a pleasure to read something by a real pro. It was tight and very amusing; keeping me up beyond my bed time - always a good sign!
  • Last Shift on June 22, 2014

    Talented, gritty, the scene and atmosphere are set very well. What I also like is that the reader is given room to complete the picture. I think it would be easy to get this genre wrong; but Phillips has nailed it!
  • Smashwords Book Marketing Guide on July 15, 2014

    Very Helpful. I have added a signature to my emails; and am busy putting other tips in place. IT WORKS IF YOU WORK IT! Marketing does not get done on its own; but this book has effective advice.
