Maybe Misery by C.s. Bailey
28 August 2014 14:44 (GMT)Review left under pers name pafos2109 on Amazon.co.uk and .com - couldn't find it on Goodreads?
Very good read.
I wasn't sure what to expect with this story but I was very pleasantly surprised. It's quite the story and I have to say I didn't like Talon, the main character, at all. How he got through life without being bankrupted by sexual harrassment cases is beyond me lol. However, he does find love but does he get to keep it? Well guess you have to read to find out! It's written as diary installments and I had to keep checking date cause got confused couple of times. Anyone who knows me knows that's easy to do and it was my fault not the books. How Talon is the catalyst for such catastrophe is a great read and I was very upset and sad at times - good writing Mr Bailey! Thoroughly enjoyed the book and wouldn't hesitate to get more books written by this author.
Matt Gemmell's Collected Essays now on Kindle
25 August 2014 12:35 (GMT)I've followed Matt Gemmell on Twitter for several years now and have been a keen reader of his blog for even longer. He's one of the most intelligent writers I have come across and I was delighted to learn that he has published a collection of essays on Kindle. It's called Raw Materials and, while the cover design is a little plain for my tastes, the interior will be well worth the price.

Review of Wanted #1 by Tim Arnot
25 August 2014 11:23 (GMT)Posted on Amazon.co.uk, .com and Goodreads under pers name pafos2109
Loved this story! Not the first book I've read by this author and it won't be the last either. Great characters and development of the storyline and have to say I wanted to cause physical bodily harm to the 'baddie' lol. I don't do spoilers so you'll have to read for yourself to find out who I'm talking bout! Flick and Shea - what can I say - loved these two and can't wait to read the next instalment of the story - which I've already bought! Very well written and congrats to the author, Tim, for taking me along in this story. Thank you, Mr Arnot. Job very well done.
Review. Taming The Beast Within: A New Weapon In The War On Candida.
23 August 2014 23:01 (GMT)Taming The Beast Within: A New Weapon In The War On Candida by Cash Peters
This book gives a fresh and thorough look at Candida and gives hope to sufferers with tried and tested ways of tackling it and a new theory as to the cause.
It's the thought provoking, yet at the same time very entertaining , personal record of one man's experiences, including a journal of a thirty day cleanse. He shares the whole process with the reader,sparing no details. There are even photos of the results too!
The fruit of many years research and experimentation, it is packed with information , making it an invaluable resource. I've found the answers to all my questions concerning my own struggle - and much more besides.
All in all a very enjoyable and informative read, which introduces the reader to new choices.
Maximum number of stars from me.
dull colour of screen
22 August 2014 18:13 (GMT)A few weeks ago I bought a new wi fi e ink kindle from amazon, NOT the paperwhite. Prior to this I had seen the same in Currys and formed the impression that the background was distinctly better/whiter than my original Kindle (over 3 years old with thr "grey" screen).
When my amazon ordered Kindle arrived the screen colour only seemed marginally better. I put this down to my own flawed perception.
However, today I had the opportunity to see and compare my new Kindle with a friends 18 month old kindle (again NOT a paperwhite) and their screen is much whiter than my new one, and similar to what I originally saw in Currys.
Could mine be faulty? Is it the case that screens are of variable quality?
Any response would be welcome. I still have a few days before the 30 day limit when I think I can return/exchange? it to Amazon.
Thanks in advance
Search has stopped working on my Kindle 3G e-ink
21 August 2014 11:45 (GMT)I've been getting this message on my Kindle 3G when I try to look up a book title or author etc. by typing in the search box at the bottom:
We're sorry! An error ocurred when we tried to process your request. Rest assured we are working to resolve the problem as soon as possible... followed by a phone number to ring customer services.
This means I can't find anything on my Kindle that isn't in the best-seller lists or promotions... which makes my Kindle more or less useless, since I often use it to look up specific titles and authors.
Anyone else having this trouble?

As Talon grows, so does his wealth and desire to cure the big C... Cancer.
Unfortunately for Talon, a series of events change his life for the worst leaving him a hollow empty husk, whose only care is greed.

Young adult romance - FREE
01 September 2014 17:56 (GMT)Hello UK readers
Today only, Pretty Girl is available at Amazon for free
If there were one day that she could change it would be the day she was taken.
After her parents’ divorce, seventeen-year-old Izzy Scott and her mother move to the old town of St. Augustine to begin a new life, a life beyond the media attention and the memories of the traumatic experiences that left an everlasting affect on their family.
The former ballerina is trying to adjust to the outside world without suffering a panic attack and exposing who she is - all while getting through her senior year at a new school. That’s easy to say until she meets local boy Mason Winchester, a boy with a tragic past.
Mason has a reputation for violence, but a love for motorcycles. At the age of eleven he lost his mother to cancer and from then he has been running from something, but could never really get away.
Like any other angry teenager, he just wants to be left alone and to have nothing to do with anyone else because he believed that he had nothing to offer. That changes the moment he saw what was in the new girl eyes.
Tragedy wasn't new to either of their lives but among the secrets and the memories the one thing they both never excepted was to find hope.
FREE Today - Acts of Violence
01 September 2014 14:08 (GMT)Acts of Violence is a noir, sci-fi thriller, and is FREE today only (September 1). Enjoy
http://www.amazon.co.uk... (or see my signature)
My name’s Jack Mason. I made a mistake. Took home the wrong girl. Now she’s dead. Cut up. And they’re telling me I did it.
It’s the same cop that tried to take me down ten years ago. Now he’s coming at me hard. And he’s not the only one. Cole Webster, the city’s crime lord, thinks I stole from him. Broke me out of custody just to ask me about it. Then I killed his son. Now he really wants me.
Add to this equation a government agent, and I’m a real popular guy right now. Pretty much everyone I meet wants me dead, lawfully or otherwise. There’s nowhere to run. Nowhere to hide. I’ve got till morning to uncover Webster’s trafficking operation and take the heat off me. And all I’ve got to go on is a pissed off homeless girl with a thirst for revenge.
Guess it could be worse. Can’t quite figure how.
