    Biggun: A Short Story (Zombie Horror) by L. X. Cain is a dark and enjoyably gory vignette about a new mother's struggle to save her infant daughter during a zombie invasion. Cain hits all the important points of the situation and genre with grace and Cain's descriptions of the zombies are delightfully disgusting. I look forward to reading more from the author. -SGS, Author of History of the Acelian Empire Book 1: Acelia
  • Paleo for Beginners: A Practical Guide to Getting Started with Paleo on May 15, 2015

    Paleo for Beginners: Apractical Guide to Getting Started with Paleo is extremely informative, clear, and quite friendly. Being rather familiar with the Paleo diet for years, I very much appreciated the volume of accurate information written in very accessible language. I wish the e-book had been formatted more conscientiously, however. A simple page break before the major headings would have been sufficient to prevent headings from appearing on the last line of a page. E-books are challenging to format as the e-readers automatically change text size, and extra attention should be paid to formatting them for the medium by the author and publisher.

    The Cat Who Spied On Me (The Secret Life and Career of Arlo the Barncat Book 3) by Jane Oldaker is well written and interesting. If you like cats, and books about cats solving mysteries, you will definitely love it! Oldaker does an excellent job of drawing you into the characters and the story, and I was hooked within the first few pages.
