I'm giving up on trade by Tareq. I'm going to review it on my blog but no where else as he's not got back to me. I'll pick another one from here soon. Just doing another book in between from somewhere else.

I had a really good and honest review last week from some unknow soul. I thank them very much because they moved me to finally stop being lazy about getting to the editing part. He gave me 4 out of 5 -stars for the book despite the whole host of editing errors. As soo as I saw his review I got on my computer immediately and spent the week nixing and fixing. And yes he was right because I found a host of errors. I am grateful that the person had the vision to appreciate the content of the story. He could easily have thrashed it as garbage. But he realised that outside of the erors it was pretty darned good.

I am truly thankful for his nonesty because that only helped me to improve my product.
Now after just letting my novel sit at the book of the Amazon e-book world I think it is a good time to finally do some promotions. You see, that was the lazy part of me again that thought you could just write a book and it would automatically be seen. It definitely does not work that way. At least this period of time has given me the opportunity to improve it.

Hoilet,
Author of "The Russian Dream," "The REDHOUSE Project," and "Surviving The Family."

How do I participate in this group? I think this is an excellent way of helping each other. I would like to receive reviews and am willing to write them for other authors. Am I required to purchase the book that I review? Please let me know what to do. Thanks

If anyone is bored tonight, I have a freeby promo finishing up and I'd be very interested in getting some feedback, whether it be a review or a comment on my FB page. It is a novella, part of a series, action/space.

Hi, I could really use a review on my novella. It is free today and tomorrow. This is a story about the gypsies who roamed Eastern Europe and Russia in the early 1900's. It is a tale of a young gypsy girl who has an affair with Rasputin. He was an arrogant man and a notorious womanizer. But he was also a gifted man of magick who studied and perfected tantric sex, and he was a healer. But Rasputin often misused his abilities to control others especially the Czarina of Russia. But....when he meets the young gypsy and takes her love lightly he will learn that he is not the only one with magical powers. This is a well researched piece, based in fact (with historical fiction woven in). I hope you enjoy. And thanks so much for reading.

Hey All you Indie Authors,
My name is Bonnie Lynn Belknap, and I have a book for you to review. It is part 1 of a four part memoir.

Dreams of America a Memoir
http://www.amazon.com/dp/B006U62CWW
In the UK: http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B006U62CWW

As an aside, I know the cover stinks, but I don't have the money to get someone to design one for me -- yet.

Also, I'm going down the list to find memoirs, crime fiction, mysteries, thrillers, and women's fiction to review, since that is what I write and read,

I had a wonderful review on .UK by an unknown, and also one on .com by an unknown. I loved the reviews. They were helpful in the sense that I had some typos in my book but did not rate it less than 4 stars because of that.
Good writing!

Almost everyone knows, or thought that they knew, that Henry VIII had six wives and every school child remembers; divorced, beheaded, died, divorced, beheaded and survived.

Fewer people know that he had at least ten or eleven mistresses and at least 4 or 5 illegitimate children but probably more. He also had many more children that did not survive infancy a not uncommon occurrence in Tudor times. He had at least 10 by his first three wives alone.

How different our history would have been if one of these had survived, been male and legitimate and became King Henry the IXth.

What hardly anyone knows is that he actually married one of his mistresses in 1538 so in fact the school yard rhyme should read ; divorced, beheaded, died, murdered, divorced, beheaded and survived

Written in the first person, Escape Company. begins with two men bound together by the same experience. With both of their wives in prison, they are fired with the same idea—how to get their ladies out.

The idea becomes an obsession, with meticulous planning involving prison routines, deadlocks, and security cameras, not to mention razor wire and some very unfriendly dogs.

Our two heroes spring their wives successfully and the idea occurs to them to form a limited company—limited to certain prisoners who merit release. So Escape Company. is born, a dedicated team of lawbreakers whose services are provided to inmates with large amounts of cash.

There are rules of course. Terrorists, sex offenders, and psychos can stay where they are, but anybody else? Well, each case is decided on its own merits.

Could such a scenario possibly work? Of course not…oh, but there was that breakout from Parkhurst not so long ago.

Wasn’t there some incident at Barlinnie? Then, if you remember, there was all that hoohah at the Scrubs…. No, it couldn’t possibly work. Escape Company is pure fiction…isn’t it?
