June Review Round Up

June has been a crazy busy month for me. In addition to making all of the arrangements for the release of “Pete and the Persian Bottle” next month, I have been preparing my manuscript for “The Bird” (Murder/Mystery with a comic twist) for presentation at the ASA “Meet the Publishers event”. I have got some reading in though – all four star stunners:

****  “Trumped – Beyond Politically Correct ” by Peter Davidson

****  “Jen Air” by J Coutelier

****  “The Eye of the Sibyl and other classic stories” by Philip K. Dick

****  “All Fall Down” by Matthew Condon

May Review Round Up

May was another month when I got through fewer books than usual. I am really busy preparing my manuscript for my murder/mystery comedy novel for a “Pitch to the Publisher” day in late June, and sorting out the printing and release arrangements for “Pete and the Persian Bottle”, so sadly I have less time to read. Having said that I read some great books this month:

****1/2 “Seven Flowers and How They Shaped Our World” by Jennifer Potter

***1/2 “The Judgement” by D.J.Niko

****   “Los Angeles: A Portrait of a City” by Jim Heimann

***     “Derek Percy: Australian Psycho” by Alan Whiticker

****1/2   “Chasing Chaos” by Katie Rose Guest Pryal
