Ronel is a brand-spanking new indie author. She loves creating fantastical worlds set in the future, the mythical, and the horrific. Translate: She writes science-fiction, fantasy and horror novels.

Her life story is not particularly fascinating, but her love of technology, PC games and writing is. Beside writing, she spends her time slaying rendered baddies in the form of robots, gangsters and aliens - with any weapon that happens to be at hand.

Ronel has published her first science-fiction trilogy, the Corrupted SUN Script and is hard at work on her next sci-fi novel, The Seventh Glitch.

When she's not writing, she's gaming, and when she's not gaming she's either sleeping or eating, as these are prerequisites for a continued life on plane

Part of any journey includes trying new things. My first three books took place during the slow extinction of mankind. My next two novels unfolded in a dystopian world similar to ‘1984.’ For my upcoming books, I’m doing something completely different and publishing an epic space fantasy trilogy that I describe as a combination of […]

Myself and the other mods have been surprised at the enthusiasm members have shown for the 'one time only' genre specific review rounds that have been set up for the 100th group celebration.

Which leads to the question, should the group move to genre

Make Your Husband Your Boyfriend Again by Julia  Black

This quick, easy read had quite a few helpful tips about how to reignite that spark between you and your husband. Although some of the tips were common sense, some were quite ingenious.

Overall, I found the book helpful. I quite enjoyed the anecdotes

Something goos will happen to you between 12 in the morning and four o'clock pm tomorrow, it could be anywhere. Get ready for the biggest shock of your life.
If you break this chain YOU will be cursed with relationship problems for the next ten years. Send this to fifteen people in fifteen minutes!!
