Smashwords book reviews by Chris Longmuir

  • Bones In the Tree on July 12, 2011

    This novella was a really satisfying read. I enjoyed Karen's take on life after a marriage breakup, followed her on several disastrous dates, and loved her relationship with Bones. I really felt drawn in by this character and shared her anguish at her role in the loss of Bones's home and rejoiced with her when she found happiness. A lovely satisfying read which I read right through without stopping.
  • The 10-Minute PR Checklist - Earn the Publicity You Deserve on July 28, 2011

    Anything to help promote a book is welcome and this book provides an informative and interesting guide to the process without burying you in too much factual detail.
  • Trafficked: The Diary of a Sex Slave on Aug. 18, 2011

    This is a book that must be read. It is the story of Elena who is kidnapped and trafficked to work in the sex business. It is a dark, hard-hitting story that pulls no punches. Written in the first person, in the form of a diary similar in style to the Diary of Anne Frank, it takes the reader right into the mindset of Elena. The reader shares her distress, her worries, her pain, and her fears. It succeeds on all levels as a story and I wouldn't be surprised if it became a classic. I have no hestation in recommending this. Sibel Hodge is a writer to watch.
