Howey Fans Do; Please Review!

Greetings, Hugh Howey fans. Let me introduce myself: I am Lisa the Erstwhile Editor and possibly Hugh’s #1 fan. (I have no intention of chopping off one of his feet…but that could change.) For some strange reason, he has allowed me permission to post on his Web site, and so I shall. For the record, let me state that Hugh Howey (HH) is the bomb and the HH’s works are freakin’ genius. Me, I’m an editor (sometimes erstwhile), a voracious reader (my boss once referred to me in public as…

Book Review: Letters for Catherine

G. G. Stokes’s Letters For Catherine tells the story of one William Hunter, a young boy coming of age right alongside his burgeoning country. Historically precise and emotionally accurate, the novel manages to bring the past alive, entertaining and educating at once. The romance, boyhood angst, and the bond between friends rings just as true as the smells, sights, and textures of Revolutionary America. Lost in most textbooks, unfortunately, are the internal conflicts present in the colonies of the late eighteenth century. Too often the war is portrayed as something…

Unreal review on Goodreads

From Sandi at Goodreads: It’s such a shame that Molly Fyde and the Parsona Rescue wasn’t picked up by one of the big publishing houses.

Molly Fyde reviewed at The Hiding Spot

The Hiding Spot is a great one. A wide mixture of YA and crossover books, well-written reviews, giveaways, events, and a lovely layout. Oh, and a grading system that is a wonderful assist for readers, and will cause most authors to fidget nervously, waiting for their work to…

Another non-SF fan becomes a “Molly” fan…

Maybe I should market this book as “YA Urban Fantasy.” Everyone is loving it, even those that normally wouldn’t read sci-fi. I just hate to think how many people aren’t trying the book because of genre. They’re missing out! Here’s the Amazon review: I wasn’t sure what to expect with this book. My husband read it first and would only give me the cryptic review of “You’ll like it.” He knows that I am NOT a sci-fi fan (he is) and I am almost strictly a mystery/true crime reader. Only…
