Mr. Sharma boasts of high book sales, largely related to his success in using social media as a marketing tool.

I wish I'd read it before I attempted to market by own stories. I appreciated that the book was full of practical tips that could easily be implemented. The book wasn't overwhelming in its magnitude - most of the tips were simple and I loved that

Review: Song for a Soldier

Synopsis Song for a Soldier follows two couples through World War I. Both start out with the promise of young love but find that war and separation can be cruel marital companions. While one couple survives, another does not. The fictionalization includes the Christmas truce of 1915 and highlights the power of friendship to end conflict. Review This is a sweet yet tragic tale about the human cost of war. The characters and storytelling is heartfelt and well-constructed. I enjoyed seeing a well-known story retold through fictional characters. The moment of the truce is as touching fictionalized as in any other representation I’ve seen. That said, it was a challenge to portray something s

Book Review: A Clean Sweep

There are some books that just work. They hit you at the right time and in the right frame of mind. A Clean Sweep was one of those books for me. From the opening sentence, I knew that I was going to love this novel. I quickly put aside the ARC version and went to Amazon to buy my own copy. This fantastic, funny, and thoughtful book follows the adventures of Emily, Tabitha, Celeste and Susan, as they rush about in the overwhelming pursuit of the perfect relationship. Each character is beautifully drawn. Their angst is paired with well-executed humor. I hopped happily inside their world and let the author take me on a crazy ride that left me spinning happily as the carnival sparkled around me.
