I hope everyone had a great weekend. Looking outside this morning and seeing the remnants of snow, and watching the reports of all the people not thinking about ice on bridges, I was glad I didn’t have to get out in it. I hope those of you who had inclement weather this weekend stayed safe and warm.
A new Drooling for Books review is up. John’s been under the weather and, like so many of it is seems, has had family emergencies to deal with as well. But he’s back to work and starts the New Year off with a review of Written in Time by Jerry and Sherry Ahern (published by Baen Books).
Here’s a reminder as well that Dave Freer’s Teen/Early YA novella, Without a Trace, is now available as an e-arc.
Also, Wedding Bell Blues by Ellie Ferguson is on sale for $1.99. It is available at the discounted price through our site, Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
Our spotlighted short story is Fancy Farmer by Pam Uphoff. It is free on our site and available for 99 cents through Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
Today’s Drooling for Books column by John Wagner, AKA the basset, is all about what a reviewer should do and what, all too often, they don’t do. He doesn’t touch the bad review because I don’t like how much the book costs issue. What he does talk about is how a reviewer needs to actually READ the book or short story before writing a review. Go check it out and let him know what you think. You can see John’s other reviews by clicking on the Drooling for Books link and then any of the review links under it on the left side of the web page.
