Penelope the Pooting Spider is moving ahead. Steve says he'll have artwork for me to look at next week. Now I need help finding a publisher.
I have a review of Dead & Dead For Real. Here it is:
I really enjoyed “Dead & Dead for Real” by author Robert L. Clayton, even though ‘paranormal terrorist thriller’ isn’t usually one of my more preferred genres (don’t dislike it, just don’t generally gravitate). But I really liked the sample and Mr. Clayton’s writing style…. Pulls you right in and that opening was crazy… so I gave it a shot. I was really impressed! I really liked the action-packed world he created here and thought that he did such a wonderful job with the descriptions of the storytelling of the events and with the dynamic of Kiki (Katherine) and her partner/lover Nick… and even though there is a LOT that happens here – from ex-military snipers, ISIS murderers, Outlaw Drug Gangs… and maybe even some sort of ‘ghost or spirit’… all felt very believable, which is the craziest part about it all… You could tell he’d done his research on many elements of not only military/government warfare but terrorism tactics as well. I thought the main characters were very well done ( really liked KiKi) but some of the supporting cast felt a bit thin (just like names, but no real sense of identity), and there were some scenes that I thought could use some trimming (or be cut entirely). But there was great action from start to finish, and I was SO shocked at some things that happened (no spoilers!). I liked how easy it is to read and this is such an unusual book I can’t even compare it to anything else. Plenty of violence and language as to be expected in a book like this, but nothing horrific. Recommend for fans of military suspense thrillers with a unique angle. Would definitely read more from Mr. Clayton in the future.
