review: Amazon ReviewerWatcher: Book I of The Chosen (Roh Morgon, author)
MOVE OVER ANNE RICE
If you think there is nothing new, fresh and original in vampire fiction, you haven't read Watcher: Book 1 of the Chosen, the debut novel by Roh Morgon. I am not particularly a fan of traditional vampire stories, but I found this incredible book more engrossing than anything I have read in the genre in years. The reasons are not only the suspenseful and well written tale, but its potent underlying themes.

He has worked through them in order to become successful on his terms. Now he shares the steps he took towards success. I have read other books by other authors on this topic, Julio clearly outlines the steps needed for anyone that is serious about making a positive change in their lives; others require you dig through the fluff. Julio lays out worksheets that... more
review: Soldier Magazine (official magazine of the British Army)Malcolm MacPhail's Great War (Darrell Duthie, author)
"The concept of trench warfare...is a prominent theme in this very readable work of 'faction'... The friction between HQ politics and the front line resonates throughout this tale. All in all, it is an enjoyable read."

review: Reviewed By Liz Konkel for Readers’ Favorite - 5 StarsFractured: Dereck Dillinger and the Shortcut to Oz (Eddie McPherson, author)
Eddie McPherson delivers a brilliant mash up of fairy tales and stories. Dereck starts off mocking fairy tales and detesting them because his sister wants them read to her on a loop. He doesn't see the adventure and purpose the tales have, preferring superheroes over them.
Then he ends up in this other world where he meets various characters. He even finds himself in the middle of the classic rivalry between the Wicked Witch and Glinda.
McPherson also includes brief appearances by Jack, t... more

review: Amazon.comPass The Torch: How A Young Black Father Challenges The Deadbeat Dad Stereotype (Jamiyl Samuels, author)
Samuels provides a great detail memory of his youth with and without his father, of which many of us can relate to that change in our lives. Though, not many can eloquently challenge the stereotype that has been placed on all men regardless of the circumstance. I thank Samuels for sharing his story.
As children it is not for us to know the details of what transpired with our parents. As parents we should not allow the emotions caught up in separation from our partner to impair any of our relat... more
