Review Me Part 2


I wish and hope that this year has started in a grand style for you and that will carry on like that all the way through and even further! No reason for me to complain, because  I continue to get your reviews  and that means you are reading my book  A World Without Color , which is the greatest reward and a gift to any writer! When I read books before I didn't realize how important reviews are. Even if it is just one sentence. As long as they are honest and you speak from the heart. With  your review  you recommend the book you loved and enjoyed reading and you also help bring more readers through the complicated Amazon algorithm. Putting it simply, the more books you buy, the more reviews y...

Review Me


I don't want to prejudge it, but there is a great chance—and hope!—that you've read  A World Without Color , my first book I published this summer in English. And if you read it as an e-book or paperback, there is even greater hope you liked it! At least this is what I like to think, haha! But  did you share your thoughts  about it with someone? There is a simple way for everyone to hear what you think of my true story of the last three days I spent with my cat. For that you need an  Amazon  or  Goodreads account through which you can post your review that can range from a simple sentence to a small article, depending on how impressed you are and motivated to test your own writing skills! Wh...

Depraved Desires – An anthology


WOAH….STOP THE PRESS!!! HOLY SHIT is this book HOT and very twisted! As you all know I am not into reading romance and this is not romance but believe me when I tell you that cold showers are needed when reading this book! Is it dark? YES! Is it twisted? HELL YES! Do I recommend it? ABSOLUTELY!!! There are 27 tales in this book and not one of them disappointed me. Most of the authors I had not heard of before but sometimes we all know that this can be a delightful thing as we get some new reading material and get to know new friends. Most all of my friends have heard of David Owain Hughes who wrote All Wound Up. He has a story in this anthology and this story alone is worth getting the book....

Read all about this worldwide bestselling book.

p1
The Pussers Cook Book is something of an anomaly. It is a book which satisfies the intent of its concept, yet reaches far beyond. To explain, the original idea behind The Pussers Cook Book was a simple one; to create a book containing the most loved, traditional meals, served from the galleys of the Royal Navy during the 1960’s,70’s and 80’s. These are the dishes the old sailors, the veterans, speak of and reminisce about. This is the food which powered the Royal Navy, the Royal Marines, the WRNS, the Fleet Air Arm and the Royal Fleet Auxiliary for well over three decades.   Apart from giving the recipes for such favourites as Pot Mess, Babies Heads and Train Crash. The Pussers Cook book tal...

Looking for a good book?


  Avid readers are always looking for a “good” book. Of course what makes a book good to one reader is not necessarily going to appeal to the next, but we all search for that sometimes elusive read that will have us turning the pages into the wee hours of the night. We read reviews, seek out books on-line, watch for our favorite authors latest releases, and most importantly look for suggestions from fellow readers for word of mouth is said to be the best advertising off all.   And so I present three books I’ve read recently for your consideration.      French Rhapsody by Antoine Laurain A letter that arrives 33 years late, a rock band that missed a chance to touch fame, the members of that g...

Getting even more personal with Matt Hickman


It is no secret that I think Matt Hickman is an amazing writer. His book Amnesia was my number one book last year and for good reasons. If you haven’t read it you are really missing an awesome story. From his stories in anthologies to his writing with other authors one thing is certain he has wicked talent. I’m telling you he is one to watch. Not only is he a writer but he is a great friend and an incredible dad. His pictures with his kids always make me smile and bring back fond childhood memories. If you haven’t met him you need to do so right now. Please welcome Matt Hickman back again to Roadie Notes……   1. It’s been awhile since we talked what new books do you have out now? Latest relea...

Silence Fallen by Patricia Briggs


I absolutely love the Mercedes Thompson series by Patricia Briggs. Her newest book is Silence Fallen. I enjoyed this book as well. There has been a lot of talk (i.e. complaints) about one aspect of the book. I'll just say it didn't bother me at all. I wasn't shocked or did I figure it out. It may have been because I had read a lot of the reviews already, but just saying, it wasn't a big deal for me.     Silence Fallen was a good book - not my favorite in the series but still good. I didn't like the fact that Mercy and Adam were apart so much in this book, but the storyline was interesting and the action fast-paced.     If you haven't read any in the series, you need to start at the beginning...

Retweet Groups ~ The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly


The use of social media for an author is important during this age where we are competing with so many others to sell our books. Gone are the days when an agent and/or publisher would fete an author with trips to expensive restaurants, book them on national talk shows, or send them on whirlwind book tours to prestigious bookstores.   Wow! That sounds like it would have been a lot of fun. However, today’s author faces a different situation when getting word about their book out. Promotion budgets at the Big 5 are often reserved for well-established authors or celebrities. Those of us considered mid-list are consigned to setting up our own promotion daily and often have a miniscule budget in w...
