MEMORIES by Steven Belden

After a horrible motorcycle accident and several days in a coma, Cody wakes up with a special gift. His new ability allows him into other people’s repressed memories. Cody and his girlfriend Tiffney go to law school and then to work for the FBI wanting to help put bad guys in jail. Working as a profiler and prosecutor, they help to break a case of a sex slave trafficking ring. I very much enjoyed this fast moving story, written is in a style that was very compelling and worth reading. I would recommend this book to many readers that like to read these books about catching the bad guy in the world.  It remind me a little of Criminal Minds.  * I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review*  4/5

The Bone Wall by D. Wallace Peach

I love gaming and I also have a love for great fantasy stories. In this book there are elements magic, mythical beasts and wonderfully imaginative kingdoms all of which are set in world where you can’t trust anyone. The thing I like about this story is that even with the elements based in the future, I still feel like it could all be possible. We meet Rimma, the strong willed twin bent on revenge; and Angel, the sweet, soft twin looking to find peace and reconciliation.  As these girls makes a choice in life the other twin’s life is impacted in some way.  If you like to read fantasy, you should check this book out. I enjoyed this book very much. * I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review*  5/5 (Looks like you’re becoming a board favorite Diane!)

We came up with a new segment name for Alysia’s reviews! Let us know what you think of the title.

Life Is Funny That Way by Sharon L Lopez

This book is very good.  It is about Jennifer and Teddie falling in love and taking on life’s journey.  I enjoyed following them through the good and bad times in life.  I would recommend this book to anyone.  It is full of ups and downs but tells about these two characters journey through life and the hard decisions that come with growing up. * I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review*  5/5

#SupportIndieAuthors, stop off for a pint of guiness edition!

Today I want to introduce you to the first person over sixty to ask to be featured. A wonderful man from my ancestral homeland of Ireland, I give you Paddy Kildarra.

My first Indie novel is ‘The Rimmer Tree’, a murder mystery set in a
fictitious UK Midland city.

Link on Goodreads:


Blurb/short synopsis.
“On a remote Sussex farm backward seventeen-year-old ANNA thinks of her baby and takes an eternity to die on a prickly rope.

Four decades later, ALAN CAIN, a man without malice but even less tact, finds a three-fingered hand violating his suburban letterbox on a bitter
winter evening.

Fractious by nature, Cain is already fighting to keep his kids and career
before he stumbles upon the same hand severed next to a headless body in a
disused Victorian pump house.

Cain soon learns he has history with the victim and not in a good way. Made
prime suspect by Detective Chief Inspector

Badman, Cain pursues his only clues while evading capture: an old mourning
card, a man called Rimmer and a back street hostel.

Assisted by a reluctant priest and an indomitable young woman, he meets
betrayal, corruption and unexpected support while unravelling the long
shadow of a forty year old injustice.”

Sixty-two. Born in Dublin. Served in the military (far away from guns).
Qualified in graphic design and ended up in public service. The Rimmer Tree
is my third novel, so I thought it was time to take a punt. It’s available as paperback and ebook on Amazon and the usual distro.

1. What do you do to keep your spirits up through a bad review?

I neither have good reviews or bad ones yet! Only recently published and not done any marketing other than set up a blog and put a link on Twitter.

Blog here:

Twitter link:

Cunning plan is to build some following before I start any hard sell. Not a natural social media animal to be honest.

2. What has been your greatest inspiration for writing your story?

Finding a hand stuck through my letterbox one dark night and learning from the cops that the sale board for next door probably attracted ID thieves who were trying to grab mail off my floor thinking my address was the for sale one. Explained why I had received a weird number of credit offers to my address in previous days for names I didn’t recognise. That’s how the germ seeded. The dead bodies came later.

3. Are there any people you feel need a shout out for supporting you?

Apart from family I tell nobody my furtive secret and use a pen name. Found Twitter followers friendly and supportive as is Goodreads so far.

4. Has self-publishing taught you any lessons that you feel will help you in life?

Self-publishing, once past the writing stage, is about a whole lot of humility and reliance on other people. No good being over-sensitive in life or nothing can be achieved.

and last, What’s your favorite color?

Sure isn’t it green.
