ADVANCE REVIEW: The Stark Divide – WROTE Podcast

The Stark Divide - WROTE

Jayne Lockwood just posted a fricking AMAZING review of my forthcoming epic sci fi book, “The Stark Divide”: This is a potent tale in an era where the problems the characters are coming up against are very familiar. Namely, the refugee crisis, capitalism and politics, power play, and wars that escalate, causing mass devastation. The fate of the dying Earth is very dark indeed. In contrast, it is wonderful to see the birth and development of Forever, borne out of the asteroid Ariadne, where the seed was planted. And whilst this could easily be a bleak tale of a dystopian … Read more

REVIEW: The Great North – 4.5 Stars

Blog Header The Great North

Another great review for “The Great North“: Review Blog: Joyfully Jay Reviewer: Veronica I really loved this tasty fantasy. There’s a bit of the supernatural here, between the Old Ones making their wishes known and Dwyn’s visions of life at time of the nuclear holocaust. It was interesting and haunting, the small snatches of our culture superimposed on this desperate landscape. I found myself charmed by the colloquialisms that survived 300 years of “Telephone” in this new oral-history society. Dwyn and Mael are sweet and kind men who forge a new path that meshes with the indigenous cultures of yore, … Read more

REVIEW: The Great North

Another great review for “The Great North“: Review Blog: Drops of Ink Reviewer: Anne BarwellOne of the things I love about J Scott Coatsworth’s writing is his world building. The Great North didn’t disappoint… I became invested in the characters very quickly. Both Dwyn and Mael are likeable characters, and I liked how the author developed the supporting cast. It would have been very easy to have some of them follow a stereotypical path, but instead the author took another direction with a lovely curve ball I wasn’t expecting. I love MM fiction with strong women characters. Full Review: https://mmgoodbookblogtours.wordpress.com/2017/06/20/the-great-north-by-j-scott-coatsworth-excerpt-review/ Buy Links … Read more

REVIEW: Skythane – Rainbow Gold Reviews

Skythane

One more review for Skythane – a great, in-depth one from Marc at Rainbow Gold: I can strongly recommend this book to all who love scifi, fantasy and romance. All three aspects are combined in a wonderful way and while it took me a bit to get into the story, it was worth it to wait until the book had drawn me in. Reading this book felt like traveling to a different planet – a place the author brought to life with beautiful and rich descriptions of a futuristic city with advanced technology and an alien wilderness with strange and … Read more

Divine Magazine Loves Skythane

Skythane

This just in… and wow. *cries a little* Debbie Attenborough at Divine Magazine just posted a great five star review of Skythane: “The story flows like a river, from its source, getting faster and faster, deeper and wider until…. well, until it reaches the sea! There is no massive info dump that you sometimes get in this sort of story, it comes in drips, so you can process each drip before you get the next one. Or in my case, many times through this book, you can pull a face at the kindle and ” say what now???” when you … Read more

Another Great Skythane Review

Skythane

More Skythane reviews are rolling in: The fantastic Molly Lolly loves Skythane, and also has a special extra scene I wrote just for her: “Oh man this book was good. I truly enjoyed the world Mr. Coatsworth created. There was so much world building that pulled me into the place and made me feel like I was there… The world built in this story is expansive. I completely got lost in all of the places, scenery, and problems facing everyone… THAT ENDING THOUGH! There was a definitive sense of hope at the end of the last chapter. You knew there was more … Read more

I loved the world and its characters… Xander, Jameson, and Quince all have parts to play in this tale. It was great getting to know more about them. I loved seeing both Jameson and Xander grow as individuals… Although it is not listed as a series, the book ends with one chapter of the saga completed and a teaser for more. I can’t wait to … Read more

Review: Gravitational Attraction, by Angel Martinez

Gravitational Attraction

I just finished reading Angel Martinez’s MM sci fi book Gravitational Attraction, a title I’ve been meaning to get around to for more than two years. Anyone who knows me also knows how rare my free reading time is. So when things calmed down post-Christmas, I decided to finally jump in and read it. The story is set in Martinez’s ESTO universe. In a nutshell, Isaac is a damaged ex-starship pilot working on an independent ship. Turk is a mostly human, strapping giant mercenary who is dealing with some damage of his own. They could be the solutions to each others’ problems, and soon they … Read more

After months of believing he’s the last man standing and almost accepting the absolute loneliness that comes with it, Zeke finds Nathan injured on his doorstep. Nathan has been walking across the country with Andy, who’s…well, not what we think. He also thinks they are the last survivors until he spies Zeke. Attacked by rapid dogs, he barely makes it to Zeke’s doorstep before it’s too late. The proof that they … Read more
