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.

Reserved for the Cat by Mercedes Lackey


Again I will mention my fondness for anthropomorphism. The telepathic cat in this story is a major protagonist. This book is one of the Elemental Master novels but as enjoyable as it was, I feel it is the weakest of the series. I did enjoy it but it read more like a young adult book that the previous books in the series. The lack of cooperation between practitioners of magic certainly reflects the inability of many talented people to work together to solve a problem. There is magic, animals, creatures, drama, intrigue and art involved in the story. I do recommend it, but arm yourself with a secondary book if you are on a long flight as you will breeze right through it.

Hi, just wanted to let you know that there is a web site that seems to be taking your content and republishing it. I heard from a friend on Twitter (Chrisbookarama) this morning that her blog was being used like that, and on that site it lists the blogs that have been added, and your blog is listed. You may want to confirm that - the site is http://bookfreak.starreviews.info/

Hope you can get it resolved if you didn't want your posts up there.

I filled out contact forms for the designer and the person listed as responsible for the code on the bookfreak site. Probably akin to spitting in the wind. The sites seem to be pushing ways of increasing traffic. If they linked back to the author's site that might be considered reasonable. Simply ripping off other peoples work is unacceptable. Thank you for the heads up.
