'As writers we are wordsmiths, creating a world, characters and story through language, and punctuation is one of the tools of language. To ignore it, except for rare exceptions, to me is like Monet painting with badly mixed paints, or Michelangelo attempting to sculpt using a hammer when a chisel is needed.

Words are what we do, language is our medium and punctuation our tool. When I write, I want to take my readers to my world, to join my characters on their journey, to experience their challenges, traumas, desires. I want them to take this journey with me, without noticing the individual words, full stops or commas. I want them to lose themselves in the story, not in the mechanics of it, and this will only happen if all the elements are right.'
-- Karen Perkins

Smashwords book reviews by LionheART Publishing House

  • Bravo's Veil on Dec. 06, 2012

    A dual timeline book, 'Bravo's Veil' follows the story of two brothers, Paul and David who were separated in 1939 when the older brother, Paul, was evacuated to Penzance in World War 2. He never came home, and nearly 60 years on David decides to act on his feeling that the story he was told about Paul's death is untrue. What follows is a story full of intrigue, spies, double and triple crossing, with great characters, action and an emotive representation of how the evacuations affected everyone involved. Highly recommended. Karen Perkins https://www.smashwords.com/profile/view/KarenPerkins
  • Back Channel: The Kennedy Years on Nov. 03, 2013

    Deep, thought-provoking, shocking in places, the narrative is a little boastful in places yet in many others, very humble; which lends authenticity to what is a fascinating and gripping personal account of intrigue and political manoeuvring and shenanigans of life at the very highest US political level. Back Channel gives a unique perspective on KGB assassins, embassy socials, Lubyanka prison, the Cuban missile crisis, the jungles of Vietnam, Dr. Martin Luther King, nuclear testing and a murderous Vice President with an eye on the Oval Office. Flashes of humour and wit , together with a well-placed sense of irony, are not overdone and help to provide a thoroughly informative yet entertaining read. Highly recommended.
  • Makoti Enters the Kraal on Nov. 07, 2013

    An absorbing, emotional and chilling tale of African mythology and the practice of witchcraft, Makoti Enters the Kraal is also a fascinating account of makoti, exploring the life and culture of African family life and will keep you gripped until the last page. Ndiwe is newly married to Akha, but soon realises something is terribly wrong with her new family. The family’s cat, Madevana, appears all-knowing and sinister, and the women in the family behave unkindly and bizarrely, especially where the kraal is concerned - a place that Ndiwe is forbidden to enter. The only saving grace is Ndiwe’s love for her Akha, but even he has strange habits. For example, leaving their bed in the middle of the night to go outside to the kraal. Add to this, rumour, strange rituals and a disembodied voice, and Ndiwe realises she is in terrible danger. Highly recommended, and I very much look forward to Phangisile Mtshali’s next books. I am hooked.
