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.

Sisters brothers by Patrick Dewitt

This is a psychological western from the San Francisco gold rush days.  You might say it is a profile of two aberrant cowboy hit men.

Eli and Charlie sister were among the most complicated characters I've ever encountered.   Charlie and Eli had an abusive father.  The impact their childhood had on there well being and on their adult behavior is a major factor in the book.  I am not fond of the cowboy genre however this book surprised me.

The plot was a bit convoluted but it was certainly interesting.  I didn't find single admirable character, I just couldn’t like the brothers or even any of their victims.  However the book is populated by a wealth of colorful characters.  If you're interested in a read off your beaten path this might be the book for you.

I recommend it.
