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.

Damnificados by JJ Amaworo Wilson

This story is loosely based on a true story that took place in the Tower of David – a half-built skyscraper in downtown Caracas, Venezuela.  The tower was depicted in the TV series Homeland as a haven for criminals.  Here is depicted more as a sanctuary for the disenfranchised.  

The characters are colorful to the extreme in this tale, each with their own sad story.  The Chinaman is an enormous enforcer type while the cerebral Nacho was saved from death by an informal step-father.  The story is full of squalid scenes and helplessly hopeless people. 

I suspect the disjointed feel of the story was to illustrate the disjointed aspects of the real story.

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.
