#Amazon amalgamates US & UK reviews?

This week, while checking something on my Amazon UK book page for THE PRINCE’S MAN, I got a shock. Instead of the 49 reviews it’s had for some time now, suddenly it was showing 77! I know it’s selling steadily, but that’s a lot of new reviews all of a sudden, and I was eager […]

#BookReview – SOUL DESTROYER by Elicia Hyder #paranormal #angels

First, the good news: I’ve started writing again! I’ve begun both a Rustam short story, and a Caledonian Sprite novel. Both characters are immense fun to write, and just at the moment, Cassie Lake’s sassy, snarky outlook on life resonates with me. The downside is you’ll have to wait a bit longer for the final […]

Continuing to catch up on my reading, I’m also catching up on my reviews.
