Reviews Wanted! Helping fellow authors!

Hi everyone! I recently did a post about reviews wanted including a poll. I looked the post over and realized that the poll was blacked out. I don’t know why?! Here is the link. I don’t know what happened to make it like that. I will try again. Here is the new poll. Please vote. I need your feedback for me and another author.

I thoroughly enjoy helping my fellow authors. If there are other authors out there who would like to join a giveaway like this contact me on my CONTACT PAGE. I can work up some new posts with promos for our books in the near future.

Here is the link to my page for all my books – children’s, MG/PT/YA and Novels for 18+. I will wait to see how many are interested before I commit to the number of free books/ebooks I will gift. My newest book, The Legend of the Taken Ones (Gateskin Chronicles Book 1) is waiting for you. Let the Adventures Begin!

This other author, Mike DeLucia, a talented writer, is also willing to provide an ebook or a paperback in exchange for a review.

Here is Mike’s link to his books. I met Mike at an award ceremony for Readers’ Favorite Book Awards several years ago. We each won an award for one of our books. We exchanged books and reviewed each other’s in appreciation. Since then I have worked with Mike to edit and review his books. They are enjoyable reads. Check out his link today if you are interested in receiving one. I don’t know how many he will be gifting at this point so hurry up and fill out the poll.

If you are interested in reading Mike’s or my books or both please contact me after you have completed the poll at and put in SUBJECT LINE – FREE BOOK FROM POLL. Also, state what type of book – ebook or paperback you choose. We will contact you.

Here is Mike’s newest book, Born for the Game, which I thoroughly enjoyed. It is definitely unique. You do not have to like sports to appreciate the creativity that went into the story line. Here are some reviews of this book.

Born for the Game


5.0 out of 5 stars This is not just a baseball story! It’s so much more!Reviewed in the United States on November 27, 2021

What if you could choose your parents? What if you could pick and choose what characteristics and talents you have? What if you could be nurtured from inception to be something special and use those talents to succeed in life? This is a book that shows us a bird’s eye view of how this could happen.

This is an intriguing premise that kept me engrossed in this story. Is this at all possible? Can we pick and choose who we want to be, what talents we will have, and how we will use them?

In this book a small man, Phineas, has big dreams about doing things as he thinks out of the box. He begins as a shoeshine boy who wheels and deals with a rich man. The rich man listens to Phineas and sees something in him that reminds him of himself. He invites Phineas to his home and listens to his ideas. The story grows from there.

The author has created an intriguing story line and shows his talent for sports play by play. He makes you feel like you are part of the game. You feel the angst of the players, their pain, their joy and their defeat. This is not just a baseball story, it is much more!

I highly recommend this story. If you are a dreamer, maybe your dream is possible one day too.

Thank you so much for stopping by to read this post. I hope to hear from you soon about your interest in our books. It is always a joy to receive reviews of books that we put our heart and soul into creating thus opening ourselves to you. Thank you for your support of myself and my fellow authors by your reviews. Keep reading and we will keep writing! Take Care!

Blessings & Hugs! Stay Safe, Stay Well and God Bless!
