Smashwords book reviews by Beaten Track Publishing

  • Glitter on July 23, 2014

    This is wonderful, and I am beyond words. Thank you, Ayla Starr.
  • Authors for Goodreads on Jan. 23, 2015

    Hilarious.
  • If At First You Don't Succeed on Aug. 06, 2015

    This is one of the funniest, yet still erotic, stories I've ever read. It's a real challenge to write comedy, and KC Faelan's got the knack. I usually stick with vanilla-flavoured fiction, which this is not, but I'm OK with that, as the love our two main characters share shines through, as they explore their relationship together. Julien and Evan are just brilliant. But I NEED more Michael! A great read - hot and hilarious.
  • The Spot at the end of the World on July 18, 2016

    Utterly devastating story, simply and powerfully told. This is the hidden side of the life of refugees and something everyone who ignorantly brandishes the anti-asylum brush needs to read.
  • Dying for you and other stories of ordinary madness on Dec. 26, 2017

    Four short, interesting observations of human-animal relationships and what they can tell us about our behaviour and mental processes. The author's bio says they're a vet, and they're quite knowledgeable in the social sciences. Nonetheless, the analyses are quite subjective, and there are a few glitches (name inconsistencies and what reads as ESL phrasing). The edition I read was titled 'Dying for you and other stories of ordinary madness', which isn't entirely apt. There's very little in the way of dying (thank goodness).
  • An English Heaven on Dec. 26, 2017

    What a lovely short read - complete and perfect in language, setting and just full of English delight, really - after the initial tragedy. Somehow, in so few words, it heals so much more than that one 'small' wrong.
