T.R. Robinson I, Win by Win CharlesI Win by Win Charles. This is a positive uptempo young woman's memoir despite her limitations. At twenty four she has achieved so much, far more than many of us.

Michael Staples Hi There,

I recently wrote a book about my life, narrating a story about the impact a traumatic childhood can have on the way in which a life unfolds. I wove together lived experience with the mytho-poetic language of the unconscious, and the story follows me, in my early teens, as I board a bus for one of the most dangerous places in the world: wartime Vietnam. My early family drama crafted an inner world of fantasy, masking my ability to see the reality of what he has gotten himself into.

You can check out my book here: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...

And if you'd like to review I can send a free copy :)

Deeply appreciative,
Michael

Fiona Malkin Hi. Do you love the sea? Would you like to read my story?

I have written a deeply personal true story describing my gradual involvement and eventual true bonding with the beautiful old fishing boat - Shemaron.

"Make no mistake; this is a love story – and a tempestuous one at that." (review Argyll Ad).

Having a moderately successful business and two grown up children, I thought my life was fairly settled. I was unprepared for the impact that my husband’s purchase of an old fishing boat would have. Shemaron: A Beautiful Endeavour is the story of my growing involvement on a practical, historical and deeply romantic level, whilst dealing with the inevitable frustrations of renovating an old boat. The turbulent and intimate interaction between fishermen and the sea is often considered alongside personal observations made from the deck of the ring net boat Shemaron, whilst experiencing the truly inspirational experience of being at sea. Poetical prose and historical interludes are woven into accounts of voyages undertaken whilst my husband and I have enjoyed guardianship of this historical boat

Please email me - fiomalk@hotmail.co.uk - info - Good Reads, if you would like to review my book. I am willing to send a free hard copy. Looking for reviews in US & UK.

Lord.of.the.Paper Mad About Men

Blurb
Meet Madelyn!
“Attractive in shape, slightly exotic, well-travelled and young at heart.”
And you’d think these brilliant qualities enables a woman to have a stable dating
life, or at least decent relationships but.......... men aren’t so modest anymore. From gym trainers to tinder and even date a black guy with a job.com, follow Madelyn on her outstandingly witty chronicles in the pursuit of a real man.
My thoughts
Mad about men is a giftedly quirky read, it's the perfect book to curl up with when you need a hell of a good laugh. It’s perhaps one of the funniest things I’ve read since Sophie Kinsella’s Shopaholic. I absolutely adore the personal emails to and from her best friend, Chloe and the weird texts from ‘Not-Tyrone’ men (A book reference for which you HAVE to read the book.)
I think I know what I’ll be re-reading every Valentines.

Thank you, Lord Of The Paper! I appreciate you and I'm glad you "get" me.

Bob Green Mad About Men: A MENmoir: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...

Mad About Men makes me want to be BFFs with Madelyn Morgan. A) Because she has adventures that I will never have in my life and B) so I can tell her that her love life is a hilarious train-wreck to her face over a few cocktails.

The book is a sweet, intimate and vulgar look at a busy, successful, single mom's sex life and her search for Mr. Right AND Mr. Right Now. It seems she can't decide which and that's perfectly OK. We all get a little nutty looking for the D and the description of her various methods of doing so is both maddening and amusing because we've all been there. Mad About Men is so riotously well written that I could barely put it down. It does get a little jumbled in spots but that just adds to the craziness.

If you need something to feed your Sex and the City fix, stop right here and prepare to laugh your ass off.

Lonna Cottrell-Thompson Here's my memoir. Read and review, if you choose...or just read...or discard. It's goofy, dark, humorous, insightful, and takes place in the 1990s.
