Gotta love my sister and nephew… They raided Books A Million and gave me a pile of Dragonlance books.

A few years ago, a dear friend of mine had to change the cover of her book on Amazon due to a “slight” ( and I do mean a slight ) amount of an anal cleft. That being said, I was sent a list of ebooks on today and what did my little eye spy?Continue reading “Some partial nudity is okay”

I want to thank the folks at Pyr for the free review copy. It’s always nice to find something in the mailbox other than bills. “Keepers” by Brenda Cooper Two sisters, one from a megacity and one from the wilderness, work together to protect the wilderness and the reintroduction of wolves from a group moreContinue reading “In my mailbox: Keepers by Brenda Cooper”
