    Book Review: The Curse of the Thrax

    by Sabrina Ricci Book Reviews
    Thumbnail image for Book Review: The Curse of the Thrax

    (This review contains some spoilers.) This book’s description does not do it justice. Mark Murphy’s The Curse of the Thrax is a well developed, often humorous, yet somewhat deep fantasy story about 14-year-old Jaykriss and his best friend and cousin, Marda. Jaykriss goes through many challenges as a young teenager. After the death of his […]

Read through the full post to learn about her inspiration, advice for indie authors, and future plans. From the very first sentence, it is clear that R.J.

    Thumbnail image for Ebook Review: Seeing Colette

    As I was the ebook converter for this novel, I’m glad to review it. Seeing Colette is a beautifully written novella, with lyrical prose that provides vivid imagery. Every paragraph is pretty to read, such as this one from Part One of the book: As she spoke, he imagined a stone thrown into glistening water and could […]

    Dianne Sagan kindly gave me a review copy of her latest book, The Hybrid Author. Full disclosure: she used my article for IndieReader, “Why Traditionally Published Authors Are Going Indie,” as part of her research. The Hybrid Author is a great resource, and really digs deep into what the relatively new term means. According to Dianne, there […]

    J E Henderson’s first book in The Credara Trilogy, Rise of the Kraylen, was a great start to the series. It’s billed as an epic tale of good versus evil and it really lives up to the hype. The battle is between God and his army of Sitcians, angel warriors, and Lucifer and his army […]

    Ebook Review: Dorothy Through the Looking Glass (Oz-Wonderland Series)

    I have been waiting to read Dorothy Through the Looking Glass ever since I finished the first book in Ron Glick’s Oz-Wonderland Series, The Wizard in Wonderland. And book two does not disappoint. There is just as much intrigue as in the first book, and the plot thickens, as more characters’ roles in the stories are introduced. I […]

    E-Book Review: A Dangerous Low

    by Sabrina Ricci Action-Adventure
    Thumbnail image for E-Book Review: A Dangerous Low

    I liked A Dangerous Low, I really did. The prologue started out strong, with a tense, high-stakes action, life-or-death scene. And then I read on and found out that everything happens in seven days, which I knew meant the story would be exciting and impressive. The story is set in Atlanta, GA, and the protagonist […]

    This is not a typical review, since I don’t usually review traditionally published books, but I am a fan of Quirk Books and Eric Smith. I actually met Eric a few years back at BEA, where I learned Quirk Books was the publisher of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. So how can you not like them? […]

    E-Book Review: Two

    by Sabrina Ricci Book Reviews
    Thumbnail image for E-Book Review: Two

    I loved Two. Having read all of Ron Glick’s fantasy novels in his multiple series, I can safely say that his writing and complex story telling abilities keep getting better and stronger. And they already started off strong. Two is (obviously) the second book in Glick’s The Godslayer Cycle series. While I did enjoy the first book, One, much of […]

    I met the author Justin Bruystens via Write or Read—he’s an alpha and beta tester who has provided invaluable feedback. When he told me the name of his e-book, I immediately purchased a copy. It sounded so cool—a bunch of apocalyptic short stories. I was not disappointed. Bruystens has a very eloquent style. His book is […]

    E-Book Review: The Prince and the Singularity

    by Sabrina Ricci Book Reviews
    Thumbnail image for E-Book Review: The Prince and the Singularity

    The title of The Prince and the Singularity: A Circular Tale is very apt. The story has many circles, which for the most part I found fascinating. It’s another great example of the experimenting you can do with self-publishing, and I really enjoyed how the author Pedro Barrento was upfront in the beginning of the […]

    E-Book Review: The Ugly American Quagmire

    Thumbnail image for E-Book Review: The Ugly American Quagmire

    John Harnish is known for his humor and his way of pushing the envelope, as seen with his self-published “The Immortalization of Fuck” in 1972. One of his more recent books, The Ugly American Quagmire, fits this style. The whole 160 pages is basically dialogue between Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson. Harnish, who is a […]

    Thumbnail image for E-Book Review: The Wizard in Wonderland

    This is now my third review of a Ron Glick book, and I have to say, I am a fan of him and his work. The one downside is he’s started three really addicting series, but so far there is only one book in each series (though I hear the second novel in The Godslayer […]

    The author, Ron Glick, kindly provided me with a copy of his second novel, Tarinel’s Song. I had the pleasure of reading and reviewing his first novel, One, the first in a series about two sets of gods fighting against each other. Tarinel’s Song is the first in a series that involves elves, mages, and […]
