Review: Deakin Inheritance

Deakin Inheritance
Deakin Inheritance by June Vollans

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Review by: Isla Mae Cosuelo on Aug. 29, 2012 on 4 stars "It's a wonderful book June. The main characters seem to have rather confusing relationships though. Is there going to be a sequel to this? But all in all a brilliant fast paced book."

Review by: Kenneth Holmberg on Aug. 27, 2012 on 4 stars "I enjoyed this story. It was written in such a way as to having read on to find out where it was going to take me. Well done!"

Review by: Leslie on Aug. 18, 2012 on 4 stars "I enjoyed this, couple plot holes you could drive a bus through, but they are addressed as the story runs on, at a pretty hectic pace. Great paced page turner, no silly science to escape a trap, everyone thinks their way out, and I def. want to read the further adventures of Calida; there's folks we find out about as the book grows that decidedly need to be seen. Read it straight through, so def a page turner."

Review: The Trouble with Dreams

The Trouble with Dreams
The Trouble with Dreams by June Vollans

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

As I am the author, I am a 'bit' biased about this book. Honestly, though, I think it's a wonderful story... full of characters you can truly love and an evil you can despise. Although the story may not be the "fastest" you've ever read, it does move along quickly enough. What the book has is great characters who unfold before you as they struggle with a situation that is both baffling and terrifying. The book is packed with fun as well. Who doesn't love Sandy and Gruffydd and the way they interact with others? Who isn't drawn in to the love between Phaon and Mariah? Who can't empathize with Aranor? The Trouble with Dreams is only the beginning of their story, however. I have five books in my head and am only just working on the third one. With twists and turns and surprises throughout the series, can you even begin to guess where this story will take you?

A Couple of Announcements

I am currently waiting for a text message from Facebook so that they can confirm that I have a valid account with them  Yet again.  I am thoroughly disgusted with them! Every time I turn around I am being asked to supply more information to them, supposedly to verify my account. It feels more and more like a scam to get my information from me. I've already lost one account to this bull-ship of theirs. Now here goes another one. I have a notion to shut down everything and be done with them. But first I need to get back on to let everyone know. So watch for me telling everyone that I'm finished on Facebook... because it is going to happen as soon as I can get back on to have my account deleted.

As a result of Facebook's screw ups, all of my future announcements will be made here, on my blog, or on my website. If you want to keep up with me, please make sure to "Follow" my blog. Thanks! I am also on Twitter and will see if I can link my blog to there as well.

I have just finished putting all of my books exclusively onto Amazon for the next 90 days as part of their KDP program. It will take a day or so to get "Deakin Inheritance" up there, because it wasn't on their site before, but all the other books are available there now. You can reach my novels at Amazon through my website on the "Novels" page. I'm hoping to make some money there, so would appreciate anyone who has read my novels to write a review and those who haven't read them to go do that! Please and Thank you.

I have begun to write the second novel in the Calida Tomson series. I've only just started that story and don't have a title as yet, but watch here for further announcements about it.
