Hot and rainy … as you might expect a Summer in Florida.
I have to admit that I felt a little sympathy for the mailman this week. On the upside, I received two books this week, but I’ve already read them, one as an ARC (advanced reader copy) and the other in ebook format.
Cuttlefish written by David Freer and published by PYR is due to hit the shelves the 24th of this month. I should have a review up by Monday. I’ll give you a hint. It’s good …
Abandoned Places: Abandoned Memories (Desert Edition) I reviewed the ebook in May (link). It’s an excellent ebook, but the paperback edition is better still. Ferguson’s photography is excellent and you can see more of her work at “Above the Norm” (link). While the title of her blog plays with the word paranormal (above the norm — get it?), she has an “above the norm” talent. Check out her links to find items that she sells, she is a one-of-a-kind artist. While you are at it, Sharon Day has a blog (doesn’t everyone?) called Ghost Hunting Theories (link) where she, oddly enough, discusses ghost hunting theories. She kicks around all sorts of topics of the paranormal with a sassy take on the subject.
I almost forgot to mention the best part of Abandoned Places, I’m quoted on the back of the book! How cool is that? I don’t want to brag but that makes at least 2 book trailers, a dozen or more publisher websites, and now a book cover. If you happen to find more of my review quotes in the wild, please let me know and I will shamelessly promote them.
