    It was okay. I'm not really in a burning mood to continue the series right now, but I might revisit it later.

    A few chapters into:

    Enjoying it so far.

    Loaded up Stephen King's "Revival" on my Kindle for the trip over. It's a little slow about 25% in, but expect that it will pick up soon.

    That was a weird one, even by King's standards. I had mixed emotions.

    I loved John Dies at the End, and so far this is just as much fun.

    Forgive the shameless plug. My debut novel is now available. Terror, nerves, excitement! Not the book, that's me.

    A great little book that I read at the airport in Newark before arriving in Atlanta :)

    Catching up with some of the things I've been reading.

    In full disclosure, Brad is a distant cousin of mine, tho I've never met him.

    This was a freebie. (The sequel is part of a bundle on StoryBundle) Personally, I thought it was ok, but making the wife of the love interest of the main character being a raging harpy was a bit much. There also was much confusion about what was going on, and some things were never properly explained.

    A psychic mystery that heavily involves Mussorgsky's "Pictures At An Exhibition". And yes, Emerson, Lake and Palmer. So far it has been a real ripping yarn.

    Finally broke down and got progressive lenses and reading glasses, so I am re-reading my hardback collection of Harry Potter books. Haven't been able to read an actual book for the last year or two!

    Also reading Hal Elrod's "The Miracle Morning" on my Kindle - it was highly recommended by the guy who owns the gym where I work out. I am soooooo NOT a morning person, though, so this might be a complete exercise in futility.

    I don't think it matters. I'm a newbie, still learning the ropes. But as far as I know they try to price it the same across the board and I get the same percentage. Though, reviews on Amazon are a huge help in gaining more exposure.

    Hope you enjoy it, if you grab one. So far I've been blown away by the response. I was terrified, lol. I know I'll get some brutal reviews eventually, but so far, so good, so what.

    I have the opposite problem. If you see a book for day people to stay awake at night, let us know! :lol:

    Use [​IMG] at the end of the URL.

    How did you like the book? I may read that one if it's any good.
