Review of THE RIGHT WRONG NUMBER by Jim Nesbitt

by Anita Lock       Selected as a Top Pick!       assigned

The Right Wrong Number is filled with the latest and greatest of Nesbitt’s Quentin-Tarantino wit mixed with everything gory, despicable, irreverent, and plenty of sex. Indeed, a great combination of mystery and a plain laugh-out-loud read—guaranteed to be a favorite for noir enthusiasts.


SHELFIES: Siri Paulson of Turtleduck Press

by Bill Kieffer      

Turtleduck Press grew out of a small online writers’ community. Several of us were ready to start publishing, wanted to go the indie route, and decided to band together to pool our skills, marketing power, and resources. Our mandate has always been out-of-the-box works. We started with a broader mix of genres – including poetry chapbooks and novellas – and later sharpened our focus to SF&F romance. We launched in November 2010 with three books: Knight Errant by KD Sarge (gay science fiction romance), Hidden Worlds by Kit Campbell (a short YA fantasy novel), and Life as a Moving Target by Erin Zarro (a poetry chapbook about living with chronic illness).

Review of ULTRAXENOPIA by M.A. Phipps

by Katie French       Reviewer Rating: 4 Stars       selected

Don’t stand out. Blend in. Remain invisible. These are the rules Wynter Reeves lives by. Her society is a future one similar to the future in the Hunger Games, as far as I can tell, that divides people into zones and controls them with severe rules and government control.



Review of THE TREASON GAME by Viv Doyle

by Kate Ashley       Reviewer Rating: 2.5 Stars       selected

The Treason Game will appeal to gaming fans as well as those who like reading a light and enjoyable New Adult coming-of-age story. However, if you want mystery identities to have that shocking big reveal, you may be disappointed.
