Smashwords Interview

When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I am a full time homeschooler of two amazing kids. One is in high school, the other in middle school, so they keep me very busy. I am also an editor and proofreader with Booktrope Publishing, so I get to work with a lot of really terrific authors. I love reading, photography and going on scenic Jeep rides.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Many of the ebooks I read come to me via authors, but I'm also a member of Goodreads, and Facebook. I oftentimes review for other authors, and get the chance to read some amazing books I would not have otherwise known about because of this. There are so many different ways to find ebooks to read!

Smashwords book reviews by J.C. Wing

  • The Order of the Four Sons: Book I on July 30, 2013

    The opening pages of this novel promise the reader an engaging story…but they ought to hold on because they have no idea just how much is in store for them. This was a very entertaining read for me. There is a little bit of everything in this novel from Egyptian mythology to tales of the old West; from the supernatural of ghosts and demons to Hungarian royalty and modern day law enforcement and military. It’s impossible to sum up this book easily and that’s one the biggest reasons why I enjoyed it so much. There was so much going on, the plot of the story skipping back and forth through time and place and highlighting many different characters. The authors deserve praise for the brilliant construction of their tale. They wound through the telling of this intricate story seamlessly and, although there was a lot to keep track of, I found it not only easy to remember who was who and what was what but I was enormously entertained and intrigued throughout. There are many different elements at play here in the first installment of this new series. Suspense, fear and humor are intermingled quite well within the plot and I thoroughly enjoyed the play between the characters. Each one of them was well defined and personable. There is mystery, murder, action and history all at once and in abundance in this novel. Because of this and the well-crafted cliff hanger that ends the first book, I am eagerly carving out some time in the very near future to read the second and third books as well.
