  • Spinward Fringe Broadcast 6: Fragments on June 19, 2011
    (no rating)
    This series of books is the best. I was so dissapointed that I did not have another book to read in this series. I look forward for the next. When I picked up the first book, I could not put it down. And so it was with the next, and the next, and the next. I spent all my spare time reading them. I read the whole series in a little over a week. I want more.
  • Time Travel Adventures Of The 1800 Club: Book VII on Dec. 19, 2011

    This is a very interesting series and I enjoy it.
  • Last Flight Out of Oz on Feb. 08, 2012

    I thought this book was slow at the beginning, however, it picked up the pace rather well. The charcters were pretty good. The story was right on. I enjoyed reading it. I have thought often in the last few years about where technology is leading us, and I agree with what the authors imply.
  • Formerly Brandewyne on March 19, 2012

    I really liked this book. A good story.
  • Rover Flight on March 19, 2012

    I like this book. A deightful story. Quite humorous at times.
  • Call of Descent on March 29, 2012

    This was quite an adventure. Good story. Loved it.
  • The Garden Wall on March 29, 2012

    Sorry, but I did not enjoy this book enough to keep reading.
  • Dawn - at eventide on April 01, 2012

    Absolutly fantastic. Love and Peace. Just what this world needs.
  • Depth of Deception (A Titanic Murder Mystery) on April 03, 2012

    I really enjoyed your book. I liked the way the character came forward in time. Payback is a bitch.
  • Homicidal Honeymoon on April 09, 2012

    A very quick, cute story.
  • Memoirs of a Reluctant Archaeologist: A novel on April 10, 2012

    I liked the book as a whole. It was slow and boring at times. I am glad I kept reading. I really enjoyed the character's personal problems with her family and how she finally handled that. I was intrigued with her struggle with her professional and social problems and how she finally comes to grips with those as well, realizing that in persuit of ones happiness, one must a decision to change.
  • What Lies Buried on April 13, 2012

    I liked it. It just goes to show us we need both sides of the "story".
  • Paranormal Investigations 3: Don't Open After Dusk on April 17, 2012

    This is not as good as the first tow books in this series. I kind of enjoyed those.
  • The Lovely Shadow on May 09, 2012

    Serious, with quite a bit of humor, love, and the paranormal. A very good read.
  • A Perfect Madness on May 09, 2012

    A good story of all involved with the WWII. Well written. I really enjoyed it.
  • Birthright: The Evolution Chronicles Book 1 on May 21, 2012

    A pretty good book for the price.
  • Sins of the Father on May 21, 2012

    I liked this book even though I am still confused about a couple of things. Bowen's plight is heart wrenching. By no fault of the author, I thint I may have to read this again to really understand the parts I am still confused about.
  • #3 Shades of Gray: Cerberus Versus Pandora on May 26, 2012

    I am still reading this series. So I guess the author is keeping me interested. But compared to other books I read on Smashwords that are excellent and cheaper, I would say this is priced to high.
  • #4 Shades of Gray: Sisters on May 26, 2012

    The story keeps me interested enough to enjoy.
  • #5 Shades of Gray: Night of the Twilight- The Chimera Strain on May 26, 2012

    I have read the previous books in this series and have enjoyed them enough to purchase the rest. However, I don't like the direction the author took the story in this book. I hope I am not disappointe with the rest of the series.
  • #6 Shades of Gray: Dawn of the Twilight- Outbreak on May 26, 2012

    Ok enough with the zombies. Get back to original good stuff.
  • #8 Shades of Gray- Land of the Twilight- Closing of Days on May 26, 2012

    Well this series peaked my intrest in the begining, now I have had to much of the zombies, and wish I had not paid for the rest of these books.
  • #9 Shades of Gray- Rise Of The Gorgons on May 26, 2012

    Finally the zombies are gone. Hopefully, for good. The story is getting back on track. But really, killer kids, come on.
  • Once Upon Another World on May 29, 2012

    I really enjoyed the story. Lots of twist annd turns and surprised. Lots of gramatical errors, but it does not take away from the book. Look forward to the next book.
  • Deep Crossing on June 02, 2012

    Good story, easy to follow,a little surprise at the end, although I had a feeling earlier on.
  • Black Mountain Affair on June 04, 2012

    Excellent. I loved it. Great charachter, good plot, very exciting, a good mystery (although I guessed who the murderer was accurately).
  • The Twisted Strands of Time on July 10, 2012

    I am really enjoying this series. However, I am no critic. I am annoyed with the errors, only because it takes time to go back to read the sentence again to understand what is being said, and then sometimes I still do not get it. All that said, I enjoy the storyline and where it seams to be going. The author is talented, and imaginative, but so much is going on that I am left sometimes confused. As I said before, I am no critic, but I know I enjoy reading. I enjoyed this, and I am left with anticipating the next book. Keep up the good work.
