5 on the Masq Scale. Andromeda's Fall by @AOwenBooks #paranormal #romance #bookreview

This is a repost of a review from yesterday. That review wasn't picked up by Triberr, and since it's part of a current blog tour from Masquerade Tours, I'm re-uploading it. From this point, nothing is different from the other post.

Tell everyone a little bit about yourself.
My name is Dave and I'm an avid book reader, of course. By day I'm a professional in the field of Geology, though these days I spend most of my time in an office.

Who are some of your favorite authors? Books?
I like a wide variety of literature, though I favor History, Science and Science Fiction. I enjoy the occasioal Fantasy or Horror read within certain parameters. I can't really choose favorite authors as I'm always looking for something new.

Tell everyone a little bit about yourself.
I am a father of 4 who loves reading and writing fiction. I've been married for 15 years, and my wife and I frequently trade books when we're done.

Who are some of your favorite authors? Books?
I have really enjoyed reading the entire David Eddings collection, though the first book I can remember reading in its entirety was The Wishsong of Shannara by Terry Brooks. I also like to read non-fiction historical books - mostly biographies. Isaacson's Jobs and Benjamin Franklin are among my faves.

What are your favorite genres of books to read?
I like Fantasy, Sci-Fi, True Crime, and Detective Novels, as well as Biographies. As long as there's a story to get me hooked, I'm there.

Besides reading, what other talents or hobbies do you have?
I like to listen to all kinds of music. Just like words, music can transport you to a different world. Because of this, I am a DJ by trade.

Tell everyone a little bit about yourself.I'm female. I live in Toronto, Ontario. I write contemporary romance. And I love writing reviews!
Who are some of your favorite authors? Books?I'm slightly addicted to Lee Child's Reacher books . . . but I've read them all and am a little put out at Mr. Child for not writing faster. I've started reading Diane Capri's Hunt for Reacher series to keep me entertained in the meantime. Stieg Larsson's Millennium Trilogy; Jane Eyre; Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum [the latest has been on my TBR list since it came out, but I'm hoarding it for future consumption]. I've been reading a lot of indies lately . . . some good gems but a lot of . . . not gems. Trying to find a reviewing voice for such times. I don't like to be mean, but I love being honest. Differentiation is tough.

Tell everyone a little bit about yourself.
I'm a single mom of two kids, one an autistic teenaged girl, the other a rambunctious 8 year old boy. Before I had kids, I worked in the soul-sucking void that is tech support, and needed every book I could lay my hands on to avoid going insane. These days, I'm a self-publishing author and still need every book I can lay my hands on to avoid going insane (just for different reasons).

My other sanity-preserving outlet is gaming, both of the computer/video type and the Dungeons & Dragons type. I've been playing both since I was a teenager, which was longer ago than I care to admit. Let's just say my family got a TRS-80 when it was a new thing and leave it at that.

Who are some of your favorite authors? Books?
Mercedes Lackey, Dean Ing, and Jim Butcher. I do not love everything they write, but they wrote m…

The Crew Sunday Post is now The Weekly Chronicle of the Crew.

Details here.


The Crew Sunday Post had a good run with 43 issues. The rebranded Weekly Chronicle of the Crew will be very similar in some respects, but since I want to introduce new features and alter older ones, the new post will go beyond the scope of the Sunday Post as designed by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. Many thanks to her and her meme. She's got a great blog. You should check it out.

Why the Change?
The first and most obvious reason is explained by ... I guess you could call it a chemical imbalance in my brain. I'm a very logical person, analytical to a fault, so it bothered me to no end when I couldn't get around to posting the Sunday Post on Sunday. Once I did it on Monday, but even as a joke, it rubbed me the wrong way.

Isn't the name weekly implying the same thing?

Yes and no. My plan is to post every week, but if my schedule doesn't allow it …

Tell everyone a little bit about yourself.
I am an avid reader with a home library that threatens to jettison me onto the street. I am also a writer who has published prose and poetry, drama and criticism. Specialties include writing about music, art, opera, and film. I was born in Alexandria, VA, and went to Hofstra. I live in the Bronx, NY, and write for a marketing agency. I have written screenplays for corporate films, as well as scenarios for graphic novels.

Who are some of your favorite authors? Books?
I have a weakness for adventure books, everything from Jules Verne and Jack London to Louis L'Amour and Clive Cussler. I love good travel books, biographies and autobiographies with some sense of history to them, such as author George Seldes or . I also love well-written fiction, with favorite authors such as Gore Vidal, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Edmund White, Gustave Flaubert, Charles Dickens, Armistead Maupin.

Please don't treat me this way. #rant

Image
I may have my faults — boy do I — but that doesn't mean people get to treat me like some have recently. Even more so if they are guilty of the same thing they accuse me of.

An author stopped payment on an advertising package, the dispute being one of no communication. The claim was that I had not made contact with the author.

To be fair, that is a likely scenario. I'm often slow to respond, and it isn't unheard of for me not to respond at all. My email organization leaves much to be desired. I'm working on it.
