Warehouse 51 – A Fantastic Read on Kindle Vella

Being a Kindle Vella author myself, I decided to test the platform out to see what its like to read a book on the Kindle Vella website. I did the typical Vella reader thing and scrolled through the endless titles that range the spectrum of fiction reading. Everything from Romance to Horror, from Kings and Queens to Space Pirates to flesh eating zombies is available on Vella to be read one short episode at a time. Being the picky reader that I am, I tried out at least ten stories before I found one that grabbed my attention and brought … Continue reading Warehouse 51 – A Fantastic Read on Kindle Vella

My Top 6 Books of 2021

It’s time for my annual list of my favorite books from the past year. My total number of books read and reviewed during 2021 is slightly lower than past years. In 2021 I only made it through 22 fiction books. What can I say. It’s been a busy year. However, 22 books read and reviewed are still enough that I can easily look back and choose a few that stood out above the small crowd. These are the books that I couldn’t put down. The ones that stayed in my head and kept my imagination churning and my face smiling … Continue reading My Top 6 Books of 2021

Deficiency – Book Review

I just finished reading and reviewing this book a few days ago. Here is my review. Deficiency by S.C. Eston is a fully developed vision into the future of mankind that is both thrilling and terrifying in its impact. The story takes place on another planet but has clear ties to Earth in more ways than one. The main characters, Artenz and Keidi are an average young couple who exist in a mostly artificial world created by a network of corporations. Artenz sister, Detel is a scientist who has been doing forbidden research. When Detel goes missing, Artenz and Keidi … Continue reading Deficiency – Book Review

Book Cover Reveal for My New Book

I’m excited to unveil the cover of my new book, Caged Animals. I worked long and hard on it, trying to get it just right. I know I’m not being very humble here, but I have to say I love the way it turned out. Why shouldn’t I brag on my work. If it were someone else’s artwork I’d brag on it. And, the fact that I’m happy with it is a big deal because I’m the toughest customer I know. Many times in the course of designing my cover I was tempted to say, “that’s good enough,” but I … Continue reading Book Cover Reveal for My New Book

Oxygen – Book Review

Oxygen by John Olson and Randy Ingermanson is a science fiction suspense novel that feels akin to the movie, Apollo 13. That movie was based on a true story about a mission to the moon that went horribly wrong. Oxygen, the book, is a fictional story about a mission to Mars that went horribly wrong. Oxygen takes that story type into several unexpected directions that are thrilling and delightful. One element that added to the human drama was the fact that the crew is made up of two men and two women. This allowed for a romantic interest to weave … Continue reading Oxygen – Book Review
