Review: “The best book ever made.”

Hyperbole. I use it often for emphasis, especially when overwhelmed with joy or another passionate emotion, so I deeply appreciate this glowing 5-star review by reader K. A. Schaefer for the 5th book in the Rowan of the Wood fantasy series: SPIRIT OF THE OTHERWORLD. Awesome! The best book ever made. The ending is the…

Book Review: A Real Piece of Work

(Reblogged from O. M. Grey’s Caught in the Cogs) I quite enjoyed A Real Piece of Work up until about the halfway point. Once the redheaded bombshell who painted nude self-portraits was introduced, and objectified so heavily, my red flags went up. Although, for a hard-boiled detective story, the misogynistic commentary was quite light. Once…

Valentine’s Day Love & Horror Stories to Share

This blog, I’m ashamed to admit, has been very much on and off for the past year, expressly against my own advice! This is what happens when an author tries to maintain two separate author personae. Not enough time. Not enough energy. I’m working on merging the two, over time. My alter ego, O. M….
