Book Review: The Nesting by C.J. Cooke

Oooh I really liked this one… From the opening pages I was completely drawn in. I couldn’t tell what the genre was supposed to be – horror? supernatural? psychological? family drama? thriller? – and loved that about it. Continue reading Book Review: The Nesting by C.J. Cooke

A Change in Schedule…

So life is busy. Weirdly, wildly busy. And as a result I’m having a hard time getting three posts up per week these days… Henceforth, for the foreseeable future at least, I will be shifting from a three-day-a-week post schedule to a two-day one. I will be running posts on Mondays and Thursdays, going forward. There may be a few oddball posts that pop up on Wednesdays or Fridays in the coming month or so, given my lead-time, but generally speaking this will be the new production schedule.

Thanks for understanding!

Today I want to tell you about two new books I’ve come across. The first is VERY intricate and definitely not a beginner book; the second is great for all ages. Both would make wonderful holiday gifts! Continue reading Book(s) Review: Kaleidomorphia by Kerby Rosanes and Coloring the Zodiac by Christina Haberkern
