My SECOND KINDLE REVIEW!

From Amazon.com 

Thanks Jayra:

"Wade Garret's Genesis: Book One of the Kingdom Come is one of the most epic sci-fi books I've read this year. The characters are so realistic that they almost feel tangible. Although I feel that the dialogue can be improved (I think it's just me not being used to dialogue written like this), the characters' personalities are something I can actually associate with, which is great.

Though the novel is quite long, Garret's talent made me flip through my e-reader like a steam engine, almost non-stop, and I finished the book in a few days. However, the prologue with Black didn’t really catch my attention as much as the actual first chapter did, but I’m pretty glad that I didn’t drop the novel as the chapters after the prologue makes up for it.

With each scene painted in full colours and vividness, I can imagine each event happening in my head. If you like books with great detail, you will like how Garret explained his world from how the buildings line up on the road to how some characters choose to wear their clothing.

Even though I'm not usually a fan of past tense and third-person in writing, I was still astounded by the amount of detail and effort put in the making of this novel. The different point of views of the characters were confusing at first, when views switched from character to character, but I got used to it, and truth be told, I actually liked it.

All in all, this is one novel sci-fi fans shouldn't miss. Thanks Garret for sharing your story with us and I'm looking forward to the second book."

Finally, my review of Star Wars: The Force Awakens

This is going to be a stream of thought, rather than a planned out, book-report style review. I hope to cover several points, but, if I miss or neglect some, I'm sure you won't care—you've already read far too many reviews of this movie anyway. So, does it really matter that yet another unknown is throwing his Two Cents into the wind for whoever to read? I didn't think so. And, to further the point, the next time something like Star Wars gets placed in my lap, maybe then I'll have real room to critique. This is just for fun and because I'm a geek. For me, blogging about this stuff is the next best thing to sitting around with friends and going over and over all the little details for hours on end. I mean, I'd like to stay married. :)

Ok, first things first: I enjoyed this movie. To me, it was a solid B (reasons to follow) I enjoyed the return to Old Movie Magic. I enjoyed the equal mix of CGI and FX and Costumes and Settings and all that jazz. It was good.…

The NaNoWriMo Diet—Guest Post: Michael R. Fletcher Author of Beyond Redemption

  The NaNoWriMo Diet


It's tempting to let this devolve into a humor piece and talk about my love affair with whiskey and how sometimes, when my brain won't shut-up and let me sleep, I bludgeon it into submission with liberal doses of Jameson. But no. I'm gonna keep this serious. Well, mostly serious.

My suspicion is that successful writers all have at least a little OCD. Who else would sit for hours on end mashing away at the keyboard with their face? What, you don't type like that? Weird.

Smarter writers (or at least those capable of obsessing over more than one thing at a time) will pay attention to their physical and health-related needs as well as their daily word count. Unfortunately I'm not one of those. I can either obsess about my health or work on a book. In the past I would write a book and then, in the time between writing and editing, exercise like mad in an attempt to shed some of the gained pudge. I used to joke that I gained ten pounds with every novel …

New Amazon Review.

4 Stars: Slow-Burning, Subtle and Unique!
by Author Dave de Burgh








Wade has written a considered and carefully crafted tale here, one that merges different genres not only well but in interesting and exciting ways.
He allows his characters to grow in the reader's mind, giving them to space and time to continuously define themselves, while also expanding and exploring the world they live in without dumping info on the reader or bogging down the narrative.

His tale also creates new cultures and magic while subtly twisting our own history, so don't be surprised if you read about something that sounds familiar.

My only issue is that the book is a slow read, but that may be because I'm used to reading fast paced tales - one thing is for sure: this is a novel that builds subtly and consistently, showing Wade to be a writer and storyteller who has great control and a vast imagination.
