Starting Book Reviews

After much deliberation, well maybe not much, I’ve decided that I will begin posting reviews of books that I read. At first, I was going to limit this only to books written by independent authors. But I decided that I really shouldn’t limit what I review. After all, I’m of the opinion that anyone can write if they put their mind to it. Why should I differentiate with authors? Also, the genre of the book will vary, but only slightly. I tend to lean towards science fiction for my reading. But here and there, I will read other genres.

As for my review layout, it will go something like this:

  1. I will have an intro paragraph that briefly states the basic story.

  2. I will then break down the review into three sections: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly. (Somewhat cliché, but I felt I could cover everything in the book this way.)

  3. My overall feeling on the book.


I do not intend to have any star ratings or point systems. My thought was I should be able to convey my opinion on the book and give you a good idea of my feelings without limiting it to a rating.

The reviews will begin now, with the current book I am reading. I will not go back to books I have read in the past. So the first review will be Sue Ann Bowling’s book, Homecoming. I am in the process of finishing this book. So, you can expect to see the review in the next week or so. Until then, Happy Reading!

How to Make a Face Mask

The United States' president and some governors are now recommending people wear a face mask to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. They're also asking that the N95 masks be reserved for healthcare workers as they help those who are suffering from the virus.

In light of this, you might be wondering if you can make one yourself?

In the video below, my wife demonstrates how to make a reusable face mask for you and your family. Though this won't guarantee prevention of the spread of the virus, it is in line with what we're being asked. Every little bit can help!


Quaratined or Stuck at Home? Here are some free books.

The global crisis regarding the COVID-19 virus (or coronavirus) is affecting anyone and everyone. Whether you get the virus or not, in some way, our lives are being impacted. Schools are closed. Parties discouraged. Social distancing encouraged. Entire countries in lockdown. Toilet paper being bought up like it's gold. The list goes on and on.

Pretty stressful stuff for sure. Something out of a movie or book. Something none of us have ever experienced to the point that it might be surreal.

You probably find yourself stuck at home right now, looking for something to do. Netflix, Disney+, video games, books. Those are probably keeping everybody company.

I'd like to give you something to occupy your time while you wait this thing out. So, starting today until the end of the month (or possibly longer depending how all of this goes), you can read any of my books at no cost. This option is available through the Smashwords website using the coupon code listed below. (This coupon cod…
