Smashwords book reviews by Tonya R. Moore

  • Media Whores on April 11, 2010

    Made in DNA’s style is bold and tongue-in-cheek. Originally delivered in a series of potent, Made for Twitter one-liners, Media Whores is a completely refreshing and impressive read. While Media Whores is most definitely not appropriate for kids, kittens or cowards, I’d definitely recommend it to the mature reader who’s on the lookout for something Not Pedestrian and quite entertaining to feed the brain.
