    Of Bots and Beans #BookReview @ColinSpindler_Author | angelakaysbooks on WordPress.com

    Title: Of Bots and Beans Print Length: 26 pages Publication Date: July 28, 2016 Sold by:Amazon Digital Services LLC Language: English Format:  Kindle Goodreads Genres: Science Fiction It took a while for me to finish this review because I wanted to reread it again, as I had trouble grasping it the first time. However, once I did reread it, I quite enjoyed it. The story is very descriptive and imaginative, and Colin did a wonderful job at getting his humor across. I would be interested in seeing what other science fiction stories Colin can drum up in the future. I thank him for reaching out to me on Twitter to review…

    Life’s A Poem | angelakaysbooks on WordPress.com

    When I was younger, in addition to short stories I’m sure you will NEVER see, I was a poet. I rarely ever shared my poetry, except with my mother…of course, she claims I was “great.” Well, her opinion may be a bit biased. Either way, I wanted to post my poetry for the world to see. Just click on the links! Hope you enjoy them! I’d love to hear your comments! But don’t be too harsh! Keep in mind that they were written by a child getting her thoughts on a piece of scrap paper. And I view myself as a bit of a novelist. 🙂 I hope you enjoy them…

    Interview with Steven James @readstevenjames | angelakaysbooks on WordPress.com

    I had the honor of interviewing national bestselling author, Steven James. He is known as the “master of storytelling,” and for a very good reason. Ever since I happened upon The Rook, book two of his Patrick Bowers Files, he’s been my favorite author. I’d like to thank Mr. James from the bottom of my heart for taking his time out of his busy schedule to answer my questions. *Originally posted on the other blog I’m affiliated with, Lit World Interviews* 1) What did you enjoy most about writing Curse? In Curse, several new characters are introduced into the series. For me, since I don’t outline my books, it’s always…

    Dark Secrets | angelakaysbooks on WordPress.com

    I was probably in my preteens when I wrote this poem (and the poems that followed after!) No, it’s not the best, but I think it was pretty good for a child dreaming of becoming a writer. What do you think? Dark Secrets Something’s floating in the hall As dark as shadows on the wall Everyone wonders what you’re hiding But you can’t tell them why you’re sliding You hide the secrets in your mind You let it be unknown to mankind All of your secrets are as deep As the dreams when you sleep They fall into a cave with a locked door You never will take anyone on…

    Title: Portraits of the Dead Print Length: 324 pages Publication Date: September 1, 2016 Sold by:Amazon Digital Services LLC Language: English Format:  Kindle Goodreads Genres: Psychological Thriller I love reading books where you find yourself in the minds of the characters, whether they are the protagonist or the antagonist.

She’s taken to a place where time has no meaning and she has only the voice of her captor to keep her company. Emma’s captor sees everything that she does. He rejoices…

    The Navigators #BookReview @savvystories | angelakaysbooks on WordPress.com

    Title: The Navigators Author: Dan Alatorre File Size: 4505KB Print Length: 252 Publication Date: July 1, 2016 Sold by Amazon Digital Services LLC Language: English Formats:  Kindle Goodreads Genres: Sci-Fi Thriller Picture coming across an old machine during a dig. Then picture taking home the machine, trying to figure out exactly what it was and what it does. A group of paleontology students that came across this machine just after a freak landslide will find out exactly what the machine does.

I loved reading it the…
