New e-mail update, a book review, and fun links with some useful writer links, WIP. If Time serves me well.....

 I'll be catching up on a little more reading, writing and editing.

I had a period reading other authors for a solid few months, and it served as a great inspiration to my own creating and editing. I'm still reading, but I've slowed down some in order to focus on some writing. My book review selection today is:

Innocence by Dean Koontz.

What an extraordinary story. It wasn't easy jumping into this book right away. I had moments of picking it up and putting it down. Hard to grasp at first with the eeriness and the way Dean Koontz tells the story in past tense, then present in alternating chapters. Soon enough, I was completely captivated and could not stop reading. It was different from anything I have read. The unfolding concept toward the end is well worth sticking through it to get there. It has so much depth it makes you think about certain things on other levels. The writing is excellent and memorable. The essence of this story stayed with me long after. Highly recommend it.
