GoReadMe! – an idea on Crowd Reading


Susan M. Toy.

The marvelous Seumas Gallacher posted a status update to Facebook, a joke really, that had me laughing out loud here in my little trailer …

“…thinking of doing a GoFundMe thingy for a movie about my ‘To Be Read’ pile on my ebook Reader… calling it ‘Kindler’s List’… all contributions welcome… J”

Then an idea struck me – “What if,” I thought (those great little words that lead to the beginning of many great ideas, stories and novels). And I wrote a message to the kind sir himself, running past him first the kernel of…

Unwrapping a Marriage: Book Review

unwrapping a marriage

Unwrapping a Marriage

By Reana Malori & Michel Prince

**A collaboration from two of your favorite Multicultural / Interracial Authors. Just in time for the holiday season.**

What do you do when the love that once set you free, feels like it’s holding you prisoner?

Sterling and Elizabeth Jackson have built a life most would envy. A beautiful home, two wonderful children and a very comfortable lifestyle. Yet something is tearing them apart. With divorce looming, they are trying to make it through the holiday season for their family.

With clashing schedules, demands from employers and two busy kids, the former lovers have managed to stay out of each other’s orbit, at least for a while. But Fate, or maybe their well-meaning family, has set them up on a collision course.

Past memories bubble up to the surface and there’s nothing to stem the flow. What once was amazing has turned hurtful and full of pain. But is that the real story? Is it too late for a couple who once lived and breathed for each other to find their way back?

There’s a thin line between love and hate. Will Sterling and Elizabeth be able to mend a love that seems broken and lost, or will the final pull on the holiday ribbon unwrap their last chance to save their marriage.

Available on Amazon September 13, 2016, just in time for the holidays!

Note: I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

My Review: With their marriage unraveling at the seams, Beth and Sterling are trying to hold it together until after the holidays. Overworked and facing daily temptations from an attractive client, Sterling is frustrated by his wife’s animosity. Stressed from trying to juggle a demanding job, two kids, and scouting responsibilities, Beth is too tired and busy to deal with her husband. Past resentments and a years of miscommunication have pushed this couple apart, and neither of them believe that even a Christmas miracle could heal the rift between them.

Anyone who has been married with children can probably relate to huge portions of this story. The authors bring to life the raw emotion and pain of a marriage in distress. I’ve been there, struggling to raise children while working full time and participating in numerous activities with my kids. It’s exhausting in a way I can’t explain, but the authors of this book have perfectly described how it feels to have so much on your plate and to feel the other partner isn’t doing their fair share. This story is also filled with hope and sexual expectation. It’s about love, family, and devotion. It’s also realistic. When a marriage is in crisis, there is no quick fix. Unwrapping a Marriage is real, passionate, and heartbreaking in a way that will bring tears to your eyes. I wholeheartedly recommend it.

My Rating:

5 stars

Pre-order a copy of Unwrapping a Marriage on Amazon.

KAI Presents… Sally Cronin!

Kev’s Author Interviews Presents:

Sally Cronin!

Hi I am Sally Cronin and am a writer. Over my career in various industries I have written everything from advertising copy to million pound budgets (sometimes there is a hint of fiction in everything!) I made a radical career change in my early forties and retrained as a nutritional therapist. I began writing about health and my first book was published in 2001. I had written a few short stories and poetry from childhood but it was not until 2003 that I wrote my first fiction book. Since 2013 I have been blogging alongside writing my books and I feel a great deal of personal and work satisfaction in writing in any format.


Kev: What’s your latest book called and how did you come up with the title?

The R's of Life

My latest book is called The R’s of Life – A guide to survival…

Kevin Brennan – update on a new novel and introducing a new way of publishing!

Kevin Brennan introduces his new novel on Reading Recommendations!

Reading Recommendations

Kevin Brennan has been promoted a number of times on this blog because he keeps writing and publishing great books, which is a good thing for readers like me who love the way this author writes his stories! He’s also part of the Reading Recommendations Revisited, a select group of authors who always give back as good as they get in the promotion department. Now Kevin is back to tell us not only about his latest novel, but of a whole new way to look at releasing and distributing said novel that I think is pretty nifty!



It’s a road picture (with pictures)…

It’s the novel you buy straight from the author …

It’s a novel about self-realization and vengeance …

It’s a novel about the pointless journey of a grieving young widow — Sally Pavlou — and a lovestruck private investigator — Clive Bridle — looking for…

What is your latest release and what genre is it? My fifth novel, The Moon is Real, has recently been published by Urban Farmhouse Press. It’s literary fiction.

Quick description: On April 1, 2011 (the day the Harbour Bridge tolls closed), two hitmen have arrived in Saint John from Montreal to kill a local drug dealer, Eddie Smythe, who has not paid up. Smythe and a pal do their best to elude them. Connecting storylines include Eddie’s uncle who has lost his grip on reality and finds solace in the portrait of his dead sister, as well as a love story between failed poet, Charlie White, and Prin, a street-smart prostitute trying to raise a child. These two characters were first introduced in my 2005 novel, The Dirty Milkman, and I’m revisiting them six years later.

Ultimately the story examines that thin line between what’s…

Spam, spam, spam, spam…

Jane Dougherty Writes

On August 16, Devastation, the second volume of The Pathfinders, goes on general release. To celebrate, there are going to be special offers. First is a new low price for Abomination.


If you feel like splashing out you can get it here

Amazon UK

Amazon US.

You know what it’s about, you know it’s full of nasty plot twists and unbearable psychological suspense, so why not treat yourself?

Alternatively, you could wait for the 16th and the FB party to see if the offer gets any better.
