#ThrowbackThursday – Author Ann Charles – Book Review

#ThrowbackThursdayRenee began the Throwback Thursday meme on her blog, “It’s Book Talk” to share some of her old favorites as well as sharing books published over a year ago. Sounded like a good reason to join! Means I’ll be going back over some of my oldies but goodies, my favorite authors, and some of my favorite stories from authors you might not have previously experienced. Hopefully, you’ll find either a story or author that interests you and you’ll check them out.

Dance of the Winnebagos by Ann CharlesThis week I am highlighting Ann Charles, another terrific, prolific author who has produced numerous series, this from Jackrabbit Junction Mystery Series (Book 1), Dance of the Winnebagos, which was reviewed on Goodreads. She penned the Dead Wood (and Deadwood Shorts) series, as well as a Dig Site Mystery (two books) and novellas. The Jackrabbit Junction Mystery series debuted in October, 2011. She consistently runs approximately 4.5 stars for any of her books sold on Amazon. She has more coming in 2018.

2016 Goodreads Choice Book Awards-Did You See the Book Trailers?

Book Trailers!

I’ve written about them before, including those trailers I published for my grandfather’s books, as well as one I created for Jean Grainger, an Irish author. Ms. Grainger published “So Much Owed – An Irish World War 2 Story” on December 1, 2013. I enjoyed the book so much that I felt compelled to create a short book trailer, which I uploaded to YouTube on March 6, 2017.

Given that I’m a member of the Book Trailer Group on Goodreads, I keep bumping up against book trailers; fascinated with most. Some amateur trailers are amazing good, some professionally produced piss-poor. But everyone sees a trailer, whether movie or book, in their own eyes. So I got to wondering about the 2016 Goodreads Choice Book Awards. How many winners had book trailers? Continue reading “2016 Goodreads Choice Book Awards-Did You See the Book Trailers?”
