JK Mikals


JK Mikals first published at the age of 14, when her brother purloined a school assignment, sent it to the Readers Digest, and kept the resulting check. When Mikals learned of this some 30 years later, she told him he might as well keep the check. Currently exploring her mind and the tropics with her 15 centimeter Aztec companion, Xochitl, Mikals is known primarily for vocabulary, an enlightened point of view and an unusual sense of humor.

  • Feng Shui Assassin on Feb. 11, 2012

    It is unfortunate that the author did not do a bit of research before tossing around terms like feng shui, karma, etc. As a long time (over 40 years) student of metaphysics, eastern spirituality and related topics, I have never, even once, run across any references to karma spreading over the floor or crawling out of the corners or etc. Or of it ever being activated by a second party practicing feng shui or anything else. Maybe the author has feng shui confused with voodoo or black magic of some kind? As for karma, it is self-generated, an effect created by yourself as cause. Aside from that(more than slightly distressing) detail, and the need for a proofreader, the book was fairly entertaining. I finished it. The author spins a good tale for the most part and it actually gets better after you are well into the story. May I suggest a proofer and republishing? There's no help for the basic misunderstanding of the nature of feng shui and karma because it is the foundation of the plot, but with sexy (!) vampires and zombies on the loose, why not allow this distortion as well? Three/quarters of a star isn't possible, so I'm rounding up from 3.75 to 4. Direction to author: Keep writing! You have talent! (But please make sure you know your devices next time. It really bothers knowledgeable old fartettes like me.) Meanwhile, thank you for an entertaining few hours.
