Don’t Go Into the Diner

Haveaheart’s Trap by Michael Allan Scott is a 12-page story published in 2019 with the aim of showcasing the author’s writing talent. It is available for free as an author’s promotion from his website or email offers or it can be purchased from Amazon for USD 0.99 which turns it into a verified purchase. I believe that makes a difference as far as reviews are concerned.

Hugs Are for Kids

Today I am Mad by Michael Gordon has this classification on its Amazon page: Anger Management, Kid’s Books, Baby, Childrens, Ages 3 5, Emotions. So why am I reading this? There are three reasons. I like to occasionally see what materials are available for learners just starting out. I am sure all of you do also. As I watch TV feel-good shows, parents show up to discuss the importance of teaching materials young people can access. What books can parents buy for their children that are appealing and deliver a positive social message? If you (any reader out there) are serious, said concerned person must dip their toes in the pool of available resources for young people. For me, that includes books. It is not enough to look only at book covers. You might think you can judge a book by its cover or even in the first few pages. If I had done that with this book, my review would have differed from the one you see printed here. Read the books you pontificate on. (I am a contrarian about ending sentences with a preposition). So much for reason one and I can comfortably descend from my soapbox rant about people who post reviews without reading the book.

Writers Want Readers

Clara by Michelle Miller can be found as one of the Amazon Original Stories (AOS) in a collection titled The Fairer Sex. Clara is Book Five of an eight-book series. All can be read one at a time for free with a Kindle Unlimited subscription or the collection can be purchased as a set (not for free). All the short stories emphasize “short.” Clara, the fifth story in the series is only twenty-four pages. Clara is a frustrated writer looking for a reader. Can you empathize? Grab a cup of your favorite cha. Or whatever people call tea in your language.

Heidi by Michelle Miller can be found as one of the Amazon Original Stories (AOS) in a collection titled The Fairer Sex. Heidi is Book Four of an eight-book series. All can be read one at a time for free with a Kindle Unlimited subscription or the collection can be purchased as a set (not for free). All the short stories emphasize “short.” Heidi, the third story in the series is only forty pages. Grab a cup of your favorite tea. This story is longer than others in the series. You may need a refill. This is about your favorite topic, money. That is your favorite topic, right?

Melonhead is Evil

Fiction Street by Grace M. Jolliffe is a short story in the 1970s Liverpool Series. This is a very short story with only one-third of the publication devoted to the story. The other two-thirds are used to put in sample chapters from other published works. This would be extremely annoying except the story was free on Amazon, as in USD 0.00 to purchase, not Kindle Unlimited.
