Profile Information

About Me:
I've always loved reading books, so my favorite reading apparatus these days is the Kindle Touch, i Pad, and B&N nook. I will never give up the real thing because I do like holding the books as I read but for traveling, driving, waiting at appointments, I will always use one of my electronic friends.

I'm always on the lookout for that new and exciting read on a daily basis so when ever I see something on sale that's a good value I'm there to snatch it up.

I really want to get my books organized so that I can keep track of them all, so I've found a few apps for the iPad that I just love. The app I like the most is pocketpedia3, this app works with the bookpedia app on my Mac and all I have to do is sync the two and I never have to worry about buying duplicates again.

Another great reference is Read, Remember, and Recommend. I love this reference book so much and how much it's opened my eyes to the reading world.

Hi Karen, my name is Larry Rodness and I am inquiring about receiving a review on my newest YA novel entitled, "Perverse", published by Itoh Press in both print and electronic formats. Synopsis as follows:

19 year old Emylene Stipe is a 2nd generation Goth who, like every teenage girl, is trying to find her place in the world. One night she comes upon an old painting in an antique store and is compelled to purchase it. When she brings it home an image of a young woman appears in the sketch and then magically materializes in her apartment. Emylene nick-names her 'Poinsettia' and they soon become fast friends. But Poinsettia has an ulterior motive for her sudden and strange intrusion into her host's life which causes Emylene to question her whole belief system.
If there is interest I can forward an E Pub or PDF.

Hi, I wanted to greet you as I just joined the website.  I have recently published a FREE (donation based) eBook and I would be thrilled if you included a review on your site.  Here is a ditty about it:

The generous seas do roam vividly,

And sacred words spoken earnestly.

People suffer and people go to war,

I just hope these words will go afar.

On 26-4-2013 I published a FREE book,

Indeed a feat of altruism, no crook!

I suffer in silence in every moment.

I have no money to publish a stunt.

I was just hoping for word-of-mouth

And email propagation as loudmouth.

Book is at:
