Letter from John Grisham, June 7, 2017

Exciting new letter from our dear friend, John Grisham.

Dear Reader: 

As I write this, I’m looking at all of them lined up neatly in a bookcase in my office, and I’m once again thankful that I’ve been fortunate enough to pursue this writing thing for so long.

While I intend for every novel to be different, and hopefully better, many of the legal thrillers have similar elements and themes. You can count on Continue reading “Letter from John Grisham, June 7, 2017”

Who’s That in the Cat Pajamas? (The Dolcey Series Book 1) by Soujourner McConnell – Book Review

The recent book release of Who’s That in the Cat Pajamas (The Dolcey Series Book 1) by Soujourner McConnell is the delightful story of a young girl’s struggle with the real world problem of leaving everything behind. She must move to a new town with her parents, and she is none too happy about it. A pajama-clad kitty with a secret surprise helps pave the way for our young heroine. Together, they explore what life might be like in new surroundings.

Children of all ages will be immersed into thought-provoking prose that carries the imagination to soaring, new heights. The love with which Soujourner McConnell wrote this book is evident from page one. Dolcey is magical and possesses special senses deftly tuned toward children in need of a little extra guidance. She finds such a child when she seeks out Emily. Dolcey’s tender caring leads Emily in a direction she is unsure she wants to see. But what awaits them is both revealing and tender and will leave you wanting more adventures from Dolcey.

Who’s That in the Cat Pajamas is a 5-star read and should reside among other classics on your children’s bookshelf. To get your copy today,  visit Amazon for a free Kindle Unlimited version or just $1.99 for your very own e-copy.

Book Review – My Abigail by MTW Author David Kummer

I am an unpublished writer, but am working on my first Novel.  While I fancy myself well-read, I cannot yet boast that I am “well-published.” However, I must say with amazement and aplomb that David Kummer, a 17-year old high school student in a sleepy river-town in Southern Ohio, has nailed suspense, terror, and the epitome of psychological thriller in his book, My Abigail.

Interview with MTW Author Marilynn Larew

Interview of Marilynn Larew

Author of The Spider Catchers and Dead in Dubai

1. When did you decide to seriously write a novel and why?

I don’t think anybody decides to become a writer. You’re walking along minding your own business one day when it seizes you from behind, and bam! you’re a writer for good or ill. Whether you have to get up at five am and write before getting the children off to school and you to your day job, or whether you have some hours during the day free to work, as I do, you write because you can’t not write, and you hone your skills hoping one day to become a published author.

Book Review: Cigerets, Guns & Beer by MTW Author Phillip T. Stephens

I had the pleasure of turning page after page of Phillip T. Stephens’ Cigerets, Guns & Beer well into the wee hours of the morning just to discover what happened next to the quirky main character in this delightful Mystery.

Stephens’ protagonist named by his father as simply Dodd, no middle name and no discernible last name, is a lovable, if unlikely, hero who has recently been released from prison for committing a petty crime. He arrives in the opening scene with an intriguing background as a self-taught prison lawyer Continue reading “Book Review: Cigerets, Guns & Beer by MTW Author Phillip T. Stephens”

Book Review: Zodiac – Settling the Score by MTW Author Kimberly McGath

mcgathA serial killer roamed, planned, preyed, and hunted for his next victim for decades. The Zodiac killer has never been identified, and scores of women in this country (and possibly abroad) have lived in fear for years. The True Crime story of the Zodiac serial killer you will read by Kimberly McGath recounts the horrific facts that permeated the California coastal air beginning with a twisted man’s fantasy of mega actress Annette Funicello.

Book Review: Don’t Look Back (Land’s End Book 2) by MTW Author Sherrie Frontz

If you’re looking for action in your serial killer reading stack, be sure you’ve added Don’t Look Back, Book 2 in the Land’s End series by Sherrie Frontz. In the first 5 chapters, I had already fallen in love with co-protagonist, Kellyn Grindstaff, and found her plight in life realistic and relatable in every aspect. It’s always fun to wish good things for the heroine of the story, but Kellyn and her best friend’s mom, Sam, have wonderful sympathetic pull on readers heartstrings from the first page.
