Reader’s Handbook 

Hi all

I came up with this idea,  the Reader’s Handbook and I want to fill it with books,  author profiles,  interviews,  reviews from zines, indie authors and indie presses.  I also am putting in poetry and some fiction, as well as any articles.  You can find the details here

I hope you can contribute something and that you pass this onto anybody who might like to contribute.  

Book Review. Dating an Alien Pop Star. Kendra L. Saunders.

Only the evil seek pleasure in taking advantage of weakness.

I love this book.

The pacing is well timed, the humour works, the characters are great and even the sci-fi elements feel realistic. There is also a few alien sex scenes to David Bowie songs.

Now available Engaged to an Alien PopStar

Author Bio 

Kendra L. Saunders is a time-and-space traveling fashionista author who writes books about magical, dark-haired men, interviews famous people, and suggests way too many bands to you via whatever social media platform she can get her hands on. She writes with good humor because humor is the best weapon for a girl who can’t learn karate (or ballroom dancing). She’s the author of the Alien Pop Star series, The Unlove Spell, magic realism novel Inanimate Objects, the dark comedy Death and Mr. Right, and the poetry collection Geminis and Past Lives.

Book Review. The Blood on My Hands.  Shannon O’Leary.  

This is an absolutely horrific book. 

Shannon O’ Leary grew up in Australia during the 1960’s. She lived with her mum, brothers and dad. Patrick O’ Leary has a split personality disorder, is abusive towards his family and a killer. Shannon O’ Leary watched him kill women on more than one occasion. 

I truly admire her mother, for eventually leaving her husband and also forever trying to protect her children, give them a normal childhood and stay working too. 

The Blood on My Hands is an excellent memoir. You have to wonder how these events were allowed to happen and why Patrick O’ Leary was never arrested. 

The resilience of this family is astounding.
