    • Roger that mate. I’m not long in from my three day a week slog.;) I’ll be back over your way when I reduce the 38 emails in my Inbox.


  1. I think Paul did an impressive review of your book. I struggle to even do a book blurb, and don’t even get me started on the dreaded synopsis. I admire people who can write about a book with such finesse. I’m sure his review will boost sales of A Taste of Honey.

    • I totally agree with you on all points Kathy and I hope you’re right about the sales.:) When I first came across Paul’s blog it was the thoughtful and structured approach to reviews that caught my eye. He does a good job of feedback, even when there is a point or two to critique. I hope all is going well with that self-publishing plan of yours.

      • Things are moving a little slower than I’d like, but life has a tendency to get in the way. I was laid low for about a week with a stomach virus, then my husband was hit with the same thing. He has multiple serious health issues, so it was touch and go there for a bit. But I’m still hoping to have a collection of short stories available on Kindle by the end of the month. I hope life is treating you well and the ideas are flowing like wine. 🙂


  2. I have seen the review and read it last night. It struck me as a very thoughtful analysis of an excellent novel. Congratulations on being featured in Writing Magazine, Tom! It seems you are riding a wave of successes, and I’m very happy for you 🙂 Bravo!

    • Thank you Ramona. Yes, I agree about Paul’s review – it is very thoughtful and well-structured because he remembers to point out any issues he sees that stood out for him. It gives the author food for thought which is excellent. I’m making great progress on Acts of Vengeance these days; the sequel to Beyond The Law. As soon as it is published in the summer, I’ll be working on the sequel to A Taste of Honey 🙂
