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.

Tenderloin by Court Haslett

This book was based in the Tenderloin of San Francisco.  It is set in the time of Jim Jones and the mass suicide/mass murder in Guyana, 1978.  The story is peripherally related to that event and the fixed election and ensuing murder of Mayor Moscone and Harvey Milk.

Sleeper Hayes is an ex-hippie who dabbles deeply in drugs, drinks and gambling.  He also is an unrepentant fixer or perhaps do-gooder.  His efforts to do favors for friends who are in trouble leads him to getting shot, stabbed and beaten.

Sleeper helps enough people that he has people in the strangest places owing him favors.  The author's description of the life of the Tenderloin residents is colorful.

This was loosely historical fiction.

I enjoyed the book.


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