Required Reading

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

Books I have authored.

Many times I receive books for FREE to give them an honest review. I do not get paid to give a good or bad review. Spotlights are promotional and should be regarded as advertising for the book spotlighted. Regardless of where or how I got a book, my review will be as honest as I can make it.

Hidden Things by Doyce Testerman


Calliope Jenkins has a serious chip on her shoulder.   She takes no crap, no how, no way from nobody.   When her best friend and former lover “disappears” she is forced to ally
 herself with unlikely allies some of whom may not exist.

This is either a psycho thriller or a fantasy horror or maybe both.   Testerman does an excellent job in crafting the unlikeable character of Calliope Jenkins.   Calliope makes a porcupine seem warm a cuddly.   She does her best to keep anyone from getting close.  Is she a wounded bird or a pterodactyl?   She keeps company with a clown or is Viktor really a clown.  

What things are hidden?  Do we all have hidden things?   Testerman develops both his characters and his story as psychodramas.   There is a wealth of pondering as well as a good adventure in this book.  I really liked Mahkah for reasons that will be self evident if you have followed any of my recommendations.

I highly recommend it. 
I enjoyed the book.
