Readers' Favorite FIVE STARS!!!

Reviewed By Ray Simmons for Readers’ Favorite
I am in awe of anyone who even decides to attempt a tale this big. I am even more in awe of someone who completes at least one book in such a saga. If Wade Garret can complete the entire Kingdom Come series he may well take his place among the literary gods of epic fantasy fiction. Genesis is book one of the Kingdom Come series and Wade Garret sets the tone and whets our appetite for the rest of the tale. At almost three hundred and fifty pages, Genesis is a tale unto itself. Yet the saga is just beginning and we can anticipate a long and exciting journey. William and Jak are the Father-Son team at the center of Genesis. They are farmers working their own plot of land in a land and economy clouded by war. When William disappears for a year without warning or explanation, we have to conclude that there is more to this farmer than meets the eye.

Genesis is such a huge tale and there are so many interesting characters that you can become completely engrossed with the story before you realize it. The writing is lyrical and Wade Garret paints the world and the people with a colorful yet deft stroke. Jak and his father William are likable characters, characters that are easy to care about, but it helps that the bad guys are so wickedly evil. This is classic good versus evil at its finest. I can't wait for the next 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 …


I have seen it. Better than expected.
