Jesse James: Infamous Outlaw of the Old West - in60Learning

My family is related to the James family. My great uncle by marriage was cousins with Jesse James. I have always enjoyed the stories of Jesse James and his gang. This book is not a story. It is the actual history of Jesse James before, during, and after his days as an outlaw. It also gives history or the whole James family.

In60 Learning has done a great job gathering all the information in this book. Larry G Jones narrates the book. I was not all that crazy about his reading. He seemed to pause a lot. It also seemed like maybe he was reading on a child's level.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

The Hermit's Creepy Pet
The Hermit's Creepy Pet (Single Shot Short Story Series Book 10) - Terry M. West

by Terry M. West

 

The title of this is a little misleading because the featured creature isn't actually a pet. An aspiring writer lives in a small rural town where most neighbors are renters and not long term residents, except for the man who keeps to himself and has No Trespassing signs all over his property.

 

One day the old hermit knocks on the writer's door and insists he has to show him something. He needs a witness. Curiosity wins over caution and they hike up to the hermit's property to see what he's caught. What could go wrong?

 

It's a short story dealing with fortean creatures with a Horror twist. The writing was fairly good and the characters well drawn, including the creature. Nothing too original in the plot, but a nice, quick read for the Monster Horror enthusiast.

Free Horror Book Haul
The Amulet Thief - Luanne Bennett
Mothman Dynasty: Chicago's Winged Humanoids - Lon Strickler
Darkness - Brandon Faircloth
The Lighthouse - Ron; Ripley
Surviving the Fall - Stephen Cross
Sker House - C.M. Saunders
After Party (Life After Life, Vol. #1) - Domino
Greensmith Girls: Supernatural Witch Cozy Mystery (Lainswich Witches Series Book 1) - Raven Snow
Disquietly Vol. 1 - James G. Boswell
The Hermit's Creepy Pet (Single Shot Short Story Series Book 10) - Terry M. West

So, with the category Genre: Horror to fill, did I go to my Kindle folder for Horror and choose one of the 53 books waiting to be read? Noooooo...

 

This time of year it's more fun to go to the top 100 Free Books in the Horror category on Amazon and start loading up more! There are certain authors always there that I've learned to skip past because they don't write well or their stuff always turns out to be Romance. Nothing against Romance, but it's not what I look for under Horror and I resent spaces being taken up by inappropriate genres. Advice to writers to get their books listed under as many categories as possible actually harms their reputation.

 

So, I've acquired all those pictured. The Amulet Thief might take over the Relics and Curiosities square to relieve me of an 800+ page book and one of these will fill my Horror genre square. I'm leaning towards Creepy Pet, just my sort of thing.

 

I think I may need to keep a folder for possible future Bingo selections. I even found a cozy that looked fun. I seem to be finding a lot of anthologies this year. That could be an interesting category for a future Bingo.

 

If you're into zombie dystopia, The Fall series is all up for free today. Grab them quick because free offers often end after the weekend. I can't vouch for the quality of any of these but you can't beat the price.

Still Free
East Dragon, West Dragon - Robyn Eversole,Scott C.

This is a rather funny book about two dragons - a traditional European and a Chinese dragon as well as the different cultures.  It's cute and silly.

Book Review: Robby Riverton: Mail Order Bride by Eli Easton
Robby Riverton: Mail Order BrideRobby Riverton: Mail Order Bride by Eli Easton
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Who knew being on the run from cut throat killers out to get him would be so much fun?

Rising star of the New York stage, Robby Riverton is poised for his big break. Except he has hideously bad luck. He was in the wrong place at the wrong time and witnessed a notorious New York crime boss commit a murder. And they got a good look at his face. So now his career is over and he's on the run. It's 1860, so what's a man to do? Go West young man.

Hopping the first wagon train to Santa Fe, the mob boss's men tracking his every move, Robby puts his acting skills to the ultimate test - Robby Riverton, actor, becomes Rowena Fairchild, mail-order bride! But Robby's bad luck holds out and the bad guys catch up to him in Santa Fe - except 'Rowena' is accosted by the killers on the street right in front of Trace Crabtree - Sherriff of Flat Bottom and older brother to Rowena's intended, Clovis Crabtree. So much for slipping away into the night! Now Robby must act the role of his life, convincing the Crabtree's he's Rowena while falling hard for Trace. Trace, who figured out Rowena was Robby, is determined to protect the actor, his family and make sure he doesn't give in to Robby's charms all while waiting for the US Marshall's to come and take Robby's statement.

Things don't go according to Trace's plans... or Robby's, but maybe they'll find out exactly where they're meant to be and who they're meant to be with along the way.

I really enjoyed this book. It was funny, sweet, spicy, and kept my interest. Definitely impressed by this book.
