The artist The book Tonic. That's the predominant word that comes to mind when I consider The Dust of Uruzgan. Once in a while something happens along that is kairos - the exact thing that is needed at a particular time. Fred Smith's heartwarming book is one of those. My connection with Fred is as… Continue reading Artist Profile: Fred Smith
I deviated from the usual types of books I review (biographies and poetry) with this one. Its interesting premise piqued my interest. Did it hold up? Read my review to find out!
Another delightful collection of poetry ... enjoy my review!
This book is worthy of being launched on International Women's Day. The author is a fighter whose story deserves to be told, read and applauded. Usually I accept books to review with a deadline of a month ahead, to ensure I allow myself the time they deserve to read the books in full and write… Continue reading Reedsy Review #8
Renewal by Sandeep Nath This book captures the zeitgeist: it has so many "Aha!" moments it benefits from re-reading. Its premise is a selected audience with Guru Pranachandra, whose message the author Sandeep Nath channelled. Through this forum ten habits of renewal in three areas (Self-Renewal, Symbiotic Renewal and Systemic Renewal) are presented. The content… Continue reading Reedsy Review #7

It was a privilege to read Alex James' Buried Alive: A story of hate and acceptance. To be given permission to enter someone’s deepest, darkest times is to be trusted with their fundamental core, the inner layers that make that person who they are today. It does not escape me that I am responding to… Continue reading Reedsy Review #5

Follow this link to my third review for Reedsy: https://reedsy.com/discovery/book/making-a-stylish-exit-nicole-richmond-de-feo While this book was not my cup o’ tea - largely because of the need for large-scale editing to remove the deplorable number of errors - it reminded me of the surprise-find pearl which still graces my bookshelf, more than two decades after its unexpected… Continue reading Reedsy Review #3
Check out my second Reedsy review here: https://reedsy.com/discovery/book/blotto-jeff-pohn Unlike with my first review, I wasn’t inspired to get into the spirit of this book by following the author’s actions of imbibing copious amounts of alcohol... so I have nothing more to add. Other than I hope you are in the position to stay safe and… Continue reading Reedsy Review #2
