Smashwords book reviews by Dorothy May Mercer

  • The Concrete Kiss on Oct. 16, 2012

    This is the first book I have read by David Grace. I read a lot of books by new authors. Not all are good. This one was the exception. If you enjoy a good cop thriller, you will like this book. It has mystery, suspense, serial killers, beautiful young women as victims, plenty of twists and surprises, and a cop that won't quit until he gets his man. The autistic young woman, as heroine, who is rarely verbal, but communicates on her computer is a nice addition, giving us a rare glimpse into the thought process of an autistic person.

  • Beautiful Lies on May 16, 2013

    "Beautiful Lies" a hard-boiled crime novel by Rob Loughran is a carefully written and ingenious glimpse into the mind of a thrill killer, what he is thinking, what makes him tick and how he feels before, during and after the murder. The murder scene, itself, is amazing in its detail. The protagonist Darren Elmore, owns a vineyard and winery and is a well respected member of the community, and yet the author makes us believe and understand Darren is capable of the ghastly act, merely for the thrill of doing it and getting away with it. As the story progresses we glimpse into the fascinating world of wines and winemaking. The antagonist is an equally nasty guy who attempts to blackmail Elmore. We wonder which of these two bad guys will end up the winner. As with any entertaining mystery story, the ending will surprise you. Dorothy May Mercer

    Roger Ellerton's "Self-Publishing Your Book: A Guide for First-Time and DIY Authors" is definately a "must-have" for self-publishers and authors into marketing their own books. For only 99 cents, it is a "steal," packed full of useful tips and guidance. Regardless of where you are in the process, you will find something of use. It is a quick read, but, also, a good reference work to keep around. In clearly artiuclated language, Roger give guidance in many areas of publishing and marketing, as well as numerous helpful links to other web sites. As a long-time writer and publisher of fifteen novels and numerous articles on self-publishing,, I still learned many things from this guide,including enough new marketing ideas to keep me busy for a year. Thank you, Roger, for your help. Dorothy May Mercer, Author and Publisher MercerPublications(dot)com
  • Stalking Red on March 08, 2014

    What could be better than a great romance? A great romance/adventure, that’s what. And what could be better than a great romance/adventure? One that takes place in the last frontier. Cherime MacFarlane writes from her intimate knowledge of Alaska, from the thriving city of Anchorage to remote wild places, via 4 wheel drive pickup truck, snowshoe and snowmachine, MacFarlane takes us from isolated scenic overlook to a romantic wilderness camping trip. We are allowed to eavesdrop on Native culture where everyone is related distantly and the only way to avoid 800 guests at your wedding is to make it quick, before word gets around. Throw in a mean ex-con hiding in a remote cabin, out to prey on elderly natives, intimidate innocent girls, and raid native bank accounts, a family that sticks together, where men are men who take care of their own, and a threat of frontier justice looms.
