    Weeia on My Mind #bookreview @elleboca | Angela Kay’s Books

    Title: Weeia on My Mind Author: Elle Boca Print Length: 307 Publisher: Poyeen Publishing Publication Date: July 31, 2016 Sold by Amazon Digital Services LLC Language: English Formats:  Kindle Goodreads Genres: Science Fiction, Fantasy When we first met Danni in Gypsies, Tramps and Weeia, she was in training at the Marshall Academy.

She’s been living in a rodent-infested apartment until she’s given the opportunity to upgrade. And her first encounter with a new recruit, Sebastien, leaves much to be desired if you ask her.

    The Sixth Gate (The Gate Trilogy Book 1) #BookReview @ktmunson | Angela Kay’s Books

    Title:  The Sixth Gate (The Gate Trilogy Book 1) Author: KT Munson Print Length: 303 Publication Date: July 7, 2017 Sold by Amazon Digital Services LLC  Language: English Formats:  Kindle Goodreads Genres: Science Fiction, Young Adult, Dark Fantasy As usual, K.T. Munson does well at creating a brand new world that we can get lost in. She definitely has a knack…it goes without saying…after all, her blog is entitled “Creating Worlds with Words.” Her worlds she creates are characters in itself, which is great in fantasy since the only way we can hope to imagine what we’re reading is to delve into the author’s words. After reading several of K.T. Munson’s novels,…

    Renegades (The Praegressus Project Book 2) | Angela Kay’s Books

    Skip to content Title: Renegades (The Praegressus Project Book 2) Author: Aaron Hodges Print Length: 276 Publication Date: May 30, 2017 Sold by Amazon Digital Services LLC Language: English Formats:  Kindle, Paperback Goodreads Genres: Science Fiction, Fantasy Renegades picks up where Rebirth left off. Having read another series by Aaron Hodges, I think that The Praegressus Project three-parter is my favorite. In Rebirth, we meet Chris, Liz and a few other characters who were stolen from their lives by Dr. Halt in order for experiments to be run on them. This experiment produces dangerous results, as well as wings for our companions. Chris, Liz and the others have already freed themselves and are on the run from…

    No author is an island … | Angela Kay’s Books

    Books: Publishing, Reading, Writing I finished reading a book on marketing that, while good, worthwhile, and filled with lots of ideas and information (much of which I already use) to get your book out there and selling, it fell short, in my estimation. Yes, it discussed the importance of building a fan base and giving fans what they want, and it also suggested one way of developing your career as being to call on others more experienced in your field and essentially “use” them and their influence to get ahead (something I didn’t particularly agree with). But where the book fell short was in not once mentioning the importance of…

    Disconnected #bookreview @nick_m_lloyd | Angela Kay’s Books

    Title: Disconnected Author: Nick M. Lloyd Print Length: 465 Publication Date: March 27, 2017 Sold by Amazon Digital Services LLC Language: English Formats:  Kindle, Paperback Goodreads Genres: Science Fiction, Fantasy This was definitely an interesting book. It wasn’t what I expected by any means. Asha Kharjal is a political advisor who knows how to rewire people’s subconscious and he’ll stop at nothing to so. He’s not the villain in the book. Asha attempts to do good with his skills, but like any decent story, he falls into hot water. This is a very technical story, much like the writings of Michael Crichton. Since I don’t have a technical mind, I couldn’t grasp a good deal of it.…
