Smashwords book reviews by Leroy B. Vaughn

  • Weasel: An Author's Parody on July 29, 2012

    Call me crazy, but I thought that this little parody was a cute idea. I think all of us that have tried to become writers feel the frustration that this person must have gone through. Good job.
  • Tatsie, the Thick-skinned Bushman on Aug. 07, 2012

    Very interesting. Well written. An unusual story and insight into a culture that most people including myself are not familiar with. Good job.
  • The Kid on Oct. 25, 2012

    Good, well written flash fiction.
  • Soldier on Nov. 09, 2012

    Wow. This is one powerful story. I was sure I was reading a story from a soldier that was suffering from P.T.S.D. I could almost see him holding a gun to his head, while I was reading. Good story, great writing.
