Okay, your used to the drill by now no doubt and probably see no reason to read this first bit of waffle. Which is fair enough because I’m not sure why I’m writing this first bit of waffle. Other than as a little introduction to the three indie novels I am throwing up short reviews, based on the Amazon reviews I posted for them today. You may recognise the 4th novel in this little list, and the review for it isn’t written by me, its included purely because it’s a new review from this week and a bit of nepotism does no one any harm (also because its the 18th review on amazon.co.uk for Cider Lane and I am so close to the magical 20 reviews I can almost taste it…)
Geordie zombies, is this key side on a Saturday night
Grim up north it may be, but it’s also fun in a frivolous entertaining bloodthirsty way. The walking dead meets Auf Wiedersehen Pet, and a mad survival nut shows why planning for the apocalypse is not that mad an idea in the first place
The Victorian world can be a grim place, and if you fall off the edge it’s even grimmer. Even if you can raise the dead. Archer manages to make her world feel real an draws you into it so well for a while you forget it isn’t real
And finally this week, this little review of another indie novel which won an award once, the review is by someone else clearly, as I am not that nepotistic.
