Behind…

Okay, so I have fallen tragically behind on my reviews, although I have been reading still. It’s just that time of the summer, where the kids are getting bored with summer, errands and chores that were put off at the beginning of summer need doing, and everyone wants a piece of your time – so the constantly growing list starts to look daunting. (This sounds like the good premise of a short story…)

But, I am not to be put off, even if the task is challenging – it just needs to be re-imagined and put into a different format to make it easier to read (or do).

So, without further ado, the list of books that will be pending review (please note that links to the reviews will be available as the reviews become complete):

Mourning Wood – Volume 1: Fiction

Mourning Wood - cover

A rousing romp through short stories, author Michael Wood guides us through his early works. Although the stories would stand alone as in an ordinary anthology, the commentary that Wood adds at the beginning of each installment adds not only depth and focus, but also color to his creation.

The first volume in a two part series, Wood revisits 14 unique stories in all their original glory. Some stories are obviously better than others, and are introduced sequentially, from his earliest works to his more current acts of fiction. An introduction to the second volume, Mourning Wood – Volume II: Non-fiction, is at the end of the book, tempting the reader to wonder about the next installment.

We can only hope that Mr. Wood continues to practice his craft, and release further, newer works.

Sydney’s Song (Sneak Peek)

cover art – Sydney’s Song

A new preview from author Ia Uaro, Sydney’s Song is an illustrated look at life in Australia.  I was granted a Sneak Peek at the first few chapters by GoodReads, and I wanted to share it with you, too.

Spattered with slang and raw, honest emotion, this is a fast read. You get the feeling that Sydney is so much more than she admits to herself. A girl on the verge of womanhood, looking to escape her current life, Sydney’s Song is a compelling read and sure to please.
