  Recently I was reading over A Reluctant Assassin (more on why later) and I found myself wondering what it is that some of my reviewers don’t enjoy about the story. I mean, I had to pull myself out of it to search for the specifics I had opened it looking for (again… more on … More A Reluctant Assassin: is the gender ratio imbalanced or just right?

Those of us who write for small presses or indie publish tend to forget that the New York Times Bestselling authors and the USA Today Bestselling … More Looking back, Reading Troll reviews, and feeling a kinship I never expected with an author whose league I am nowhere near!
