Introduction:

They are both unique and different from Holmes and Moriarty, but the resemblances are definitely there. Continue reading

My author thought this was going to be a character interview, but I don’t like interviews. I’m more of the type who just likes to talk unstructured. First, I’ll let Faith tell you a little bit about the book, herself, and her giveaway. You’ll definitely want to check out the giveaway.

Introduction:

I really wanted to like this book. As an author, I wanted to know what I could do to help my writing a little more.

Or sometimes, they were things I had heard many times before. Continue reading
