Did you know I have covers for sale?

I don’t talk about this side of my life or my blog for that matter, but I actually have covers on here to sell. I am only offering them up for ten dollars, not a professional, just trying to help people get their start in the Independent Business. I wish someone would have had cheaper covers for me when I was starting out. Hopefully, I can help out a few people and they won’t have to put in a ton of money up front. Sometimes, writing as an Independent Author isn’t for everyone. I myself am about to take a break in order to pursue Traditional Publishing (my dream and goal). Anyway, above and below are two of my covers and this link will send you to the rest of them: awrenfro.com/covers-for-sale/. Thanks for letting me rant and sale for a bit. Have a great day.

Book Reviews: Angel Time and A Few Short Story Collections

at

This was a book I didn’t mean to own. I asked for the rest of The Vampire Chronicles series for Christmas a few years ago and I wound up getting this one as well. I am glad I did. This was a great read from start to finish. I am always hesitant to read new books by Anne because she has been hit or miss, but this one is well worth the time. I think Prince Lestat wasn’t as grand as the others in the series because she has moved on from writing about those kinds of stories. You can tell by reading Angel Time that she is passionate again about a certain kind of subject matter. Believe me, it shows. I am now curious about the others in this series. I might have to check them out.

Amazon

I also read these three short story collections recently and didn’t write a review for them. I thought I would give them a nod so you can check them out for yourself.

Of the three I read, this one was my favorite. Unique and different with very original stories. There isn’t a bad one in this collection.

Most of these stories were amazing, King at his best, and a few even reminded me of the old King back when he wrote “It” and “The Stand.” There were also a few that I wouldn’t read again and one long poem that I read purely because it was King. If it had been anyone else I would have skipped it. If you like King (like me) then this is a must read. Even when he is off he is still great at what he does.

Amazon

ghost-stories

This is another great collection of short stories. It is a quick read, but there are some really good ones in here. I would recommend it, especially for the upcoming Halloween season.
