Reading notes.....

Monday, May 23, 2011

I have several RVing friends who are also authors and thought I would post links to their Kindle books here. You can download these to your Kindle or to readers like Kindle for PC/iPhone/iPad/Android/etc.

The first is from Nick Russell, editor of the Gypsy Journal and a good friend. While a writer for years, it's always been non-fiction. Yesterday he uploaded his first fiction book, Big Lake, to Amazon. At an introductory price of only 99 cents, you've got nothing to lose. I downloaded it and it's on my list to read next. You can keep up with Nick and his wonderful wife, Terry, on their travel blog. If you're an RVer, you can meet them at the next Gypsy Journal Rally in Celina, OH September 26. We'll be there...hope you will be, too!

Another author you might enjoy is Brian Gore who writes old West fiction. Being an 'ole cowboy himself, he lends an air of authenticity to his book, A Matter of Honor. We met Brian last year in Colorado, just before he and his wife Heidi hit the road with their pups and motorcycles. They have been boondocking all over the west since then, you can keep up with him on either of his two blogs: RV or MC.

Oh, remember if you download and read either/both of these books, be sure to upload your review. The authors would appreciate it!

Okay, now on to a quirky author that I have enjoyed...John Locke, the Donovan Creed series. Donovan Creed is a former CIA assassin with a weakness for women and an unusual sense of justice. The books can be graphic and gritty. All his books are currently 99 cents and it's best to read them in order. So here is the list:

I have downloaded but not read his latest series, Emmett Love Western, Follow the Stone, but expect to enjoy it as well. He recently published book two in this series, Don't Poke the Bear.

I have to admit, I am getting the writing bug again. Back before my late husband was diagnosed with cancer, I was doing a lot of non-fiction writing and dabbling in fiction. I had several things published and wrote several regular columns for both magazine and newspapers. I had written several things for children and outlined a few romance novels. Maybe time to dig out my notes....

Till next time - keep on rollin',

  1. Good luck with you're literary endeavors. :)

  2. Oh Donna I do so encorage you to take up writing again... to have such a talent is a waste not to share it with others!!! Thanks for the info on the books... I love to read!
    Have fun & Travel safe

  3. I just grabbed Big Lake to read after I finish (yet another) Cara Black mystery. Since I know and love Paris, I adore her series set in various parts of Paris.

    Since they are .99, I grabbed a John Locke Creed book a couple of days ago. Was a quick, fun read.

  4. I'm always looking for anew read. I'll download them later, as you say 99 cents is a great price and it is fun to support people that people you know know .... Now that's a mouthful!


We're waiting.....
