- Free Dive - beyond the blue curtain
on Feb. 15, 2012
This debut book, by new author Stephen Francia, is well worth the read. It's a nicely written story that combines the thrills and adventure of the sport of extreme free-diving, with the drive for personal excellence. It's also a story of love and relationships - and trying to maintain a delicate balance between the two. The plot is well thought out, with several unexpected twists and turns. I really enjoyed reading this book, and look forward to seeing more by this author.
- The Emotion Thesaurus: A Writer's Guide to Character Expression
on Aug. 14, 2012
I can't say enough about how valuable The Emotion Thesaurus is as an incredible resource for writers!
Angela and Becca, impressive writers themselves, have provided in-depth descriptions, suggestions and workable ways to improve your writing through concise descriptions of every possible character trait imaginable ... and then some. They have provided verbal and non-verbal definitions; how to avoid cliches, and how to use powerful expression to make your characters come alive for the reader.
I've been following Angela and Becca at "The Bookshelf Muse" for a long time, and they know what they're talking about. I definitely recommend this book as a "must-have" for all writers!
- Alligators Overhead: The Adventures of Pete and Weasel Book 1
on Oct. 01, 2012
C. Lee McKenzie’s mid-grade book, Alligators Overhead is a delightful, fast-paced adventure story of Pete, a 12-year old kid with a good heart but who gets into trouble without even trying (and he delights in the getting into trouble part, even if not so much the consequences of his pranks) and his grumpy but brainy sidekick, Weasel. The book has a spooky old house, witches, magick and, of course, alligators, which should please young readers age 8-14.
I really liked the storyline of this well-written book. It was also refreshing to see a professionally laid out ebook without spelling, punctuation or grammar errors to detract from the story; very well edited and nice presentation, with a cover that will be sure to entice a mid-grade reader to pick up the book. I really enjoyed this, and look forward to reading other books by this author. I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.

- Isabella's Torch: A Thanksgiving Memoir
on Nov. 19, 2012
I loved Kristine's micro-story, Isabella's Torch: A Thanksgiving Memoir! It was heartwarming, lighthearted and charming - I almost felt like I was sitting at the dinner table with her, enjoying a delicious turkey dinner and listening to the friendly banter. A lovely family memory, Kristine; thank you so much for the gift of your story! ~ J C Edwards (Julie Catherine)
- Man in the Corner: A Holiday Story
on Dec. 23, 2012
I absolutely loved this short story by Kristine Lowder. "Man In The Corner" is a wonderful tale with old-world charm and that warm family feeling - I can't say much more or I'll spoil it for you, and it's definitely worth the read. I really like Kristine's plain, homey style of writing; it draws you into her world with such ease and comfort. ~ Julie
