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.

Abandon by Blake Crouch

Indiana Jones meet Stephen King.  The author clearly demonstrates that human emotions are far more frightening than paranormal activities.   Abandon, a lost mining community and missing population and modern treasure hunters combine in this eye opening mystery.

An estranged father and daughter,  some paranormal ghost busters and greed driven desperados travel to Abandon, each seeking something they think they lost.

Crouch shows humanities basic instincts haven't changed from 1893 to the present.

The author does a terrific job in creating both the environment and the climate for this book.  The interaction between the different groups and the motivation also provides an interesting twist to the story.  About the time you think you have the  plot figure out the author throws in another twist and makes you rethink your whole theory.

Excellent book which I highly recommend.

Web site:

This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
