Author Guest Post: Mia Mae Lynne

Author Guest Post: Mia Mae Lynne Hello readers. My name is Mia Mae Lynne, author of the contemporary multicultural romance series Southern Men Don’t Fall in Love. I would love to tell you about my journey of bringing this series to life. I started writing the books in 2008 and named the series The Chronicles of Fate. Life events happened and I had to put away the series; death of my father, 20 year marriage dissolved, unemployment, health issues, and a host of other life changing events. Up until that time, I had eight books written. The first book was titled Tempting Fate and the series was copyrighted in 2010. In 2015, the first release was published....

Review: Roomies by Christina Lauren

Review: Roomies by Christina Lauren Roomies Author: Christina Lauren Reviewer: Jen Rating: A What I’m Talking About: Holland, born in a cab and the youngest of six kids, lives in Manhattan on the support of her doting uncles, who are more like fathers. She has a masters degree in fine arts – an aspiring writing, who isn’t writing. She’s got little direction in her life, but when an accident puts her in contact with the subway busker she’s been crushing on for six months, Holland’s life turns upside down. With a little bit of the 1995 Sandra Bullock movie, While You Were Sleeping, and a little bit of the 1991 film, Green Card, Roomies...

Normally, I would have kept on going, since this wasn’t the first time someone had accidentally-on-purpose rammed into me while I was walking across the quad, thinking that it was...

Review: Terminal Alliance by Jim C. Hines

Review: Terminal Alliance by Jim C. Hines Terminal Alliance Author: Jim C. Hines Reviewer: Gikany and Una Rating: A What We’re Talking About: Terminal Alliance is a new hilariously witty science-fiction novel by Jim C. Hines.  We loved it! Mr. Hines has blended his characteristic humor, world building, and character development in a science fiction world.  The human race is actually endangered.  Humans destroyed themselves, but are being slowly saved from a devastating virus by an alien race, the Krakau.  The virus takes a thinking, reasoning, rational human being and turns them feral.  Humans have become id driven animals, reacting by instinct and fueled only by baser needs.  However, once rehabilitated by the Krakau into calm...

Review + Giveaway: The Remaking of Corbin Wale by Roan Parish

Review + Giveaway: The Remaking of Corbin Wale by Roan Parish The Remaking of Corbin Wale Author: Roan Parrish Reviewer: B. Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: Although I’ve read several titles by this author, and have enjoyed each one a great deal, I had a difficult time with both the reading of The Remaking of Corbin Wale, as well as writing this review. Evocative, sensual, and magical—I can’t remember ever reading anything like it, and wanted to love it because of that alone. Each of the five senses is teased into complicity, and the author’s general storytelling abilities are evident throughout. Phrasing such as: “In Alex’s arms, time was measured in breaths and distance in the wrinkles of the...

Green Publisher:   Severn House Publishers Released:  September 1, 2017 Series:   Ishmael Jones #4 Genre:  Sci-fi/Urban Fantasy/Mystery Author contact links:   Website Purchase links:  Amazon REVIEW Snippet: There was nothing welcoming about the house.  It looked like it had been dropped here in the middle of nowhere because nowhere else would have it.  Just looking at the building made my skin crawl.  It felt… spiritually unhealthy, as though the life within it had soured and gone off. ‘You’re frowning,’ said Penny.  ‘Which is rarely a good sign.  Should I be thinking seriously about turning the car round and making a run for...
