Bones to pick

So, I’m trying to understand why when I get excited about writing reviews, that I get on two lists, and then get X-ed off both… not sure it makes sense to me. Either way, hopefully in the next months to come, I’ll actual receive a book for review… Also, completely unrelated… what is with people in a Christian industry holding such grudges and bitterness?

The Hunted by Mike Dellosso: CFBA

My book hasn’t arrived yet, but when it does, you’ll get a review! – MJ For now here is this from Mike, himself! Seeing this, how could you not want to read it? Hi Margaret, In the mean time, why is my book a must-read? It’s a page-turner thatpacks a punch in the theme department.

For a writer, that’s the greatest compliment I canget, knowing that someone (a someone who isn’t even a reader) set asidehours out of their busy schedule to read my book.

Set in the Blue Ridge Mountains, much like the story of Christy, the mountain people live fascinating lives, continuing their traditions from their ancestors Welch land. One of the traditions that is continued on is that of the Sin Eater. It is the same sin eater tale that is told through that movie The Order, but so much more real to life. It is so hard,. . .
