Cold Angel Days! Mystery, sci-fi, intrigue. By Clive Johnson.

I love being back in the realm of Dica, with all of its cold walls, castles, mystery, sci-fi and intrigue. I’m back with Falmeard and Geran. This is a series that’s always changing, you never know what’s around the corner or up the stone steps. It’s the fourth book in the series and I wasn’t disappointed. Cold Angel Days puts Falmeard and Geran and her sister prescinda to the test of family and love. Clive writes a tale in his own style of writing. Grab a cold drink or hot one sit back and relax and dig in to this poetic like story. I say poetic because Clives words are in a world all their own. If you haven’t read one of his books, please do so. The Dica series is one of mystery, sci-fi and a love story like no other. Clive has a map that’s actually a work of art, but it’s meant to help understand where your looking and traveling through this series. Once again I’m impressed Clive.Image

Brian was a white dude and Ebony was black. Ebony made it clear she wasn’t interested, but Brian invited her to the VIP section after they were done playing. Of course she thought he was cute enough but not her type and the white girls next to her wanted him, they were staring her down when Brian was talking to her, she mentioned this to Brian, but he said he wanted to talk to her not them. Ebony didn’t go to the VIP section. She told the girls about Brian, they said she should have gone. One day she arrives home to find lawn care people working in the yard.

A look at a writers life and his women friends. PASSION by Kevin Swarbrick


This is a story rewrite of two of this authors first books, Louie Has Landed The Early Days and the Second Encounter. It’s a story of the author and the relationships he’s had with women. It’s full of love and deception at its highest level. The feelings he had  for these ladies and what they put him through was intense enough to wanna write a story. I can’t imagine what he was feeling reliving it through words written for everyone to read. I’m sure it was his outlet as it is for most authors. After going through a up and down relationship that was abusive at times, you have a hard time trusting people. Mark meets Sarah at a pub he was at with his friend, he thought she’s was beautiful. He couldn’t help but look her way every now and then. There eyes caught and Sarah walked over to Mark and there banter between them was a hit from the beginning. They exchanged numbers and texted. Mark couldn’t keep his excitement about Sarah to himself. His friends reminded him what he just went through and to take it slow with Sarah. Will Mark listen, find out by downloading your copy today. While I found the story very intriguing and full of fun, crazy at times and couldn’t wait to turn the page to see what’s happening next, I could only give it 4 stars because it has editing issues. That didn’t take away any of my pleasure while reading this awesome story. Thank you Kevin for sharing what was a hard but true life for you with all of us. I would recommend this read to anyone who likes  a fun at times sad, crazy kind of read.

Rocks you to your core!! Nocturnal Ember by Helle Gade

I knew this author was one to look out for, I was right. Her first poetry book(Silent Dreams) touched my heart and soul, I could feel her words. Nocturnal Embers is even better. The cover pulls you in first, then her poems of pain, seasons, innocence of children and dreams rock you to your core.The dreams that pull at your head and heart written for all to feel. The photography was a great surprise, when you look at the photos after reading the poems you can see her words in them. The author took those photos! Not many words on the page, but powerful enough to feel her message. I have total respect for this author showing and sharing her inner pain. Some of my favorite poems are, ( Writing) this poem reminds me of all my author friends and how they make us readers feel. Memories, just beautiful. Child’s soul, a reminder of our childhood and us now. Helle sticks to her roots of Nordic mythology throughout the book. Please hit that button, if you don’t you will never feel her words. Thank you Helle for sharing your beautiful words with us. I would totally recommend the author to anyone who likes to feel what they read in a poem.Image
