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.
  • Tips on Emigrating to New Zealand on Aug. 03, 2012

    This book is well written and informative. I was just looking at free books to compare a few and stumbled across this book. I enjoy travel books, even though I will probably never go to New Zealand and I don't have to work any longer, so I don't need a job. I met Burt Munro years ago and he was mentioned in the book. I even like Texas. Good job on the detail and the information.
  • 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.
