My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 stars for a recipe book? Sure enough. It's concise, clear, easy to understand and the choices of smoothie are pretty yummy looking. I've been making my own smoothies for quite some time, and I loved especially the ones with a shot of protein powder. Those are my favorites for sure. I won't review the tastes of the smoothies, since that's all personal preference, but I think the author did a great job here in presenting them.

The Serial Killer's Daughter [#thriller]

The Serial Killer's Daughter by Lesley Welsh
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Like reading the screenplay for a snuff film. If that's not okay with you, skip it. You've been warned.

The sheer quantity of sexual violence and mind-games can be a bit overwhelming to the more sensitive reader. None of the characters experience much of a growth arc. No one really wins or loses. It's just fun fun fun until everyone is dead. There is no romantic anti-hero posturing here. Hope that's not going to be a problem for you.

Why 4 stars? It is pretty well written. Gotta hand the author that.

Sweet Infected Inspirations

My character Emma, the protagonist, started out as one person and became another. It shows in the book as she evolves and transforms in so many ways from the opening butt-kicking scene to the final fight of the book. Then we get to see even more in the teaser for book 2.

I started out writing about her without really knowing her, and little clues and hints about her personality and appearance came to me as I slowly grew to know her bit by bit. I became her in spirit, since it's a first-person narrative. Every time I sat down to write I had to get into character to be sure to have the consistency necessary for a smooth plot flow.

I've mentioned a few times now that Anime was a major influence on my characters and their relationships. Every now and then I find an image on G+ that represents some small facet of Emma's character.

My reviewers think I did an excellent job. I hope you will too.
