Smashwords book reviews by Shaina Richmond

  • Wives in Service on Dec. 26, 2010

    I just finished "The Conjugal Clock" - the first novella in the book - and I absolutely loved it. This author knows how to tell a story. It's a unique, creative concept - the idea of this clock. I'm usually not into such masochism but I thoroughly enjoyed the story and can't wait to read more of her work. She's obviously a very intelligent woman and it shows in her writing.
  • Where's the Money? on March 15, 2011

    I'm very grateful to Ruth Ann Nordin for this book. Marketing is by far the most overwhelming part of self-publishing, if you're trying to make a living. She confirmed for me what I already thought I knew, and also helped set me on a clear path to focus on channels I hadn't really thought about. I've already seen a difference and I just bought the book last week. This book is definitely worth the money. She simply tells her story of what worked for her and what she wishes she had done sooner. The helpfulness of the book makes me overlook the few little grammatical errors. :) Thank you, Ruth Ann Nordin! I wish you continued, and even greater, success.

    Trine Daely has written some truly exquisite poetry. At times it's quite dark, but it's gripping and emotional. I dare you not to feel when you read this. It's open, raw, and beautiful.

    I saw this "brand new" on Smashwords when I logged in and decided to read it immediately, already being a fan of James Pollard. I'm glad I did. This story leaves me with unanswered questions, but in a good way. I think this story is well told. I love the way Mr. Pollard describes the raw emotions of the main character. I would say more but I don't want to spoil it. Very well done.
  • The New Days: The First Son on Dec. 13, 2011

    This is one of the few zombies books I've read, and I have a feeling that all others may pale in comparison. This book has heart. It's engaging, and hard to stop reading. The father / son relationship in the book made me forget that I was actually reading a zombie book. Categorizing this book as a "zombie book" is an insult to the writer. I'm a life long horror fan, and this book far exceeded my expectations.
  • Circle City: Lord of the Wolfen ~ Book I on Dec. 13, 2011

    I haven't read a lot of shape-shifter books. I have a feeling that this book maybe isn't what most readers are accustomed to reading about wolves of the shape-shifter variety. But for someone like me, I found this story - especially the grittier aspects - to be realistic and intriguing. I like the author's attention to detail, and her realistic use of dialogue. Horror and erotica are two of my favorite genres, and this book definitely has both. A great read.
