Pardon this self-promotion post, but I guess that’s part of my job as an author with books on the market. Red Adept has posted a review of The Takers on her blog, which is aptly named Red Adept’s Kindle Book Review Blog. It’s a Kindle blog which means if you are a Kindle owner you can subscribe to her blog and get reviews of the latest and greatest titles available for the fancy-schmancy e-reading device. I’m happy to say she gave The Takers five out of five stars. Here’s an excerpt of her review:
It was difficult to find a stopping point in which to take a break while reading this novel. Every single bit of it is filled with tension and foreshadowing.
When I got to the very end, I thought I was going to be angry and disappointed, but the author managed to restore my faith with just one last sentence.
I am humbly gracious for the kind words. It’s obvious Red Adept’s blog has a significant following because the Amazon ranking jumped considerably since she posted her review. BTW – The Takers is availabe in both print and Kindle formats.
Okay, a couple of months ago I posted a poll to see what prize you guys would prefer to win in an “Oz Chronicles” competition.The Kindle won over Playstation 3, Xbox 360, the Wii, and iPhone.And this was way before Oprah made the Kindle cool.So the Kindle it is.There will be only one winner, and I’m still working out the details.What I know so far is that the competition will center around five questions pertaining to The Takers:Book One of the Oz Chronicles.I will be providing the PDF for free download on this blog soon for a limited time, but if you want to get a jump start, you can get the book on Amazon today.
Why am I doing this?I’ll let you decide with this really lame excuse to use the new WordPress poll function.
