The amazing K.B.Miller author of The Moon Coven Series

There are few who haven't heard of K.B.Miller author of The Moon Coven Series  by this point. Since she burst onto the scene she has been a tireless promoter of independent authors,  being one herself, even going so far as to create a video blog titled self publishing 101 on her website h  She has produced a unique novel titled Compulsion, the first of a five book set in what is called The Moon Coven Series, the set will be accompanied by several novellas two of which are out now titled Haunted Moon, and Harvest Moon.  She is off and running on another series titled Super Natural Society, and another book titled Ghosts From My Past, not to mention because she has a little attention deficit thing going on, thank God, a hosts of other projects which she's working simultaneously.  There will be children books as well as adult books coming.  She has learned the ins and outs of this complicated, now highly technological field of endeavor, for long gone are the days of a simple type writer with ribbon. K.B. Miller spends every waking moment seemingly in her pink plaid , and owl decorated bat cave working off of multiple computers at once switching between story lines and playing with graphics. I didn't mention graphics did I? That's right she learned how to do those to.  She's designing her own book covers.  She says it brings her peace. It's her down time while sipping on her favorite caffeinated beverage. She's been spotted with three open laptops in front of her all going at the same time. She's even learned the delicate art of promotions with some kick ass merchandise featuring her book titles and her highly well known twitchy witchy kisses trademark.     Keep in mind she hasn't done all this on her own.  She's had a lot of help from fellow authors, of whom she loves and adores, two of whom have collaborated with her to bring two new ideas of her's to fruition.  Barytales with Willow Cross and Jennifer Malone Wright and Once Upon a Zombie Apocalypse again with Jennifer Malone Wright.  Such collaboration has not been seen before.   K.B.Miller has a  tenacity all her own to keep going, a will to succeed, a drive to keep pushing, to learn all about the modern writing world in order to pursue her dream of being a published author, and persevere.   She deserves the respect and admiration that she is receiving, and the writing world is blessed to have another prolific author added to their ranks expanding the literary fabric of our world with her works.  We look forward to much more entertainment from the amazing K.B.Miller.

The Complete Works of Sherlock Holmes by: Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

I am so into The Complete Works of Sherlock Holmes.  I love the old stories about the consulting detective of London.  I have the old movies on VHS and I remember reading the books long ago.  The books have long since disappeared and my VHS collection is down to three.  So, you can imagine how pleased I was when me dear sweet wife surprised me with this down load on my kindle.  Here in my hot little hands are the complete works.  I can take them with me everywhere and read and re-read all I like.  Were talking four novels and dozens of short stories using language that has all but died out.  (Proper English.) There are wonderful words with four, five, and get this six syllables all over the place.  The fluidity of the writing is intoxicating.  Most of modern America is probably going to need a dictionary sitting next to them as they read from time to time. That's not to say it's a difficult read because it's not, but here you will see many words no longer in use though they ought not be forgotten in place of those that never use to exist.  There is no reference to (booty, or bling) here.  There is a good deal of older slang you probably never heard of or used yourself.  You'll recognize such words as you read  such as (trifle) which in the late 1800's meant a small matter where today it's a dessert. This is a series for an intelligent reader longing for literary mental stimulation in an old fashion detective story with  beloved  characters. There is a difference with this current telling, it is by an author named Robert Ryan who was of a mind to tell the tales from Watson's perspective putting him front and center with articulation that would rival the most eloquent diplomat.  Watson as a narrator is a superb twist with the blessing I may add of the Arthur Conan Doyle estate.   All told there are four novels and sixty one short stories.  I have now read and enjoyed them all, and will reread them over and over for as long as my kindle will last,  and you will too.  I promise.  So, in the words of the great detective "steel true, blade straight" and enjoy.

An interesting twist on a faery hunt in modern times gone wrong.  Craig, his brother, and their sister with the nickname of Pudge go tramping into the woods armed to the teeth looking for faery responsible for many a disappearances as of late.  They track them deep into the wood and open fire on the faery lights.  But, as they run out of ammo they are over run and sister strikes a deal with the faery king.  Do they survive the encounter?  Is there a happy ending?  I'll not tell you.  It'll only take minutes to read this neat short story.  It reads well.  

Zombiewood Confidential by: Mari Mancusi

I don't want to be misunderstood here when I say it reads like a Scooby Doo story.  I love Scooby Doo.  I grew up watching the cartoons.  Zombiewood Confidential is fun like that.  It's light in content.   A breeze to read through.  And, enjoyable in a zombies are real oh my GOD kind of way with a little profanity sprinkled in.  Mason Marks is the star of a zombie action movie being filmed on a desert island.  He's a known womanizer which makes it difficult to get close to the new make up artist he's fallen for despite having a girl friend he's co starring with.  Fortunately she's not really his girl friend.  That's all made up to sell tickets, but the make up artist Scarlet doesn't know that.  And, Cissy, Mason's supposed gal isn't spilling the beans.  Things get easier for Mason to put the move on though when the extras on set turn out to be real zombies raised from the dead by the director and his hired voodoo priestess.  Will Mason and Scarlet survive the real thing to see a happy ending.  Find out as you peruse Zombiewood Confidential.
