The Sugar House- Jean Scheffler

This is a fantastic historical fiction that beautifully tells us so much about the social history of Detroit from 1915 until the early 1930s. These were years in which the City was growing to be the combustion engine of the United States of America and then laboured through the hard years of the the 1920s, to only grow…See More

Orphan of the Olive Tree- Mirella Sichirollo Patzer

This is a well written romantic novel, rather let down by a poor final edit. The infrequent typos jarred particularly deeply because Patzer's writing is so very good. I can't help but think that the author was badly supported by her editor(s) and meddlers.From early on in this read I was rooting for the 'nice'…See More

Life Drawings- Philip Newey

This is a study of a mix of characters in life's emotional pressure-cooker, the boiling mass of hormones, memories, fears and pains that make us all. We come to know the two main characters very well and to build convincing pictures of many of those around them. We see that we often become far more than we might…See More

King's Warrior- Jenelle Leanne Schmidt

This is well written, though it needs another edit to cut out sentences that repeat rather more than advance the dialogue. The story leans towards the happy ending fairy-tale rather than harder fantasy, not that that is a fault. What it does mean is that this book is, in my…See More

A Mug's Game- C.J. Swanson

This book is written in a lively, energetic style that bounced me through the story. The narrator is Swanson's main character, one Jimmie Barlow. The voice feels to me, though I am fairly long-in-the-tooth, to be a very authentic male teenage/young adult one. Seeing as the author is both female, and of nearer my age…See More

It's Just Lola- Dixiane Hallaj

Dixiane Hallaj is a particular good writer of social/historically placed, politically pointed, drama, both in her creative fiction and as in this case in the writing of Biography augmented with fictional reality. In fact, most biographies contain some invented content, and/or augmented interpretation. There are going…See More

Lumière- Jacqueline Garlick

Lumière is a delightful book. I particularly loved the start: the steam elephant. I hope he reappears in future stories.There are only two factors making this book less brilliant than its potential. Firstly, there are far too many deadly situations from which Eyelet `only just' escapes. She ran just fast enough too…See More

Losing It All- Marsha Cornelius

Cornelius sets the reader right into the tough trough of a city’s squalid underbelly. We can imagine ourselves looking into the concrete underpasses of whatever modern urban environment we may know, as a similar story could be written there a thousand times. The ending may be less kind, less relieved by love, but the…See More

Desolation Run- James Snyder

Reading this very competently put together, adult, adventure thriller very much reminded me of the Wilber Smith books I once devoured. The continents that provided location may be different, but the landscapes are not so dissimilar. Snyder has a similarly smooth ability to…See More

11 Oak Street- Graham Cook

This book is a stunning indictment of a corrupt and vindictive legal system, which is not set in a failed State, or in a corrupt totalitarian regime, or in some particularly troublesome period of history, it is set in the `legal' system of the State of California and its judicially semi-autonomous counties. I am not…See More

Ripple, A Tale of Hope and Redemption- E.L. Farris

I am not sure what one more review can add to a book that has been so positively endorsed. However, I feel compelled to try. Apologies if I add nothing worthwhile.This is highly competent story telling that explores some of the worst abuses of the psychological and physical power often wielded by sick individuals. This…See More

Eternal Destiny- Tahlia Newland

We reach the top of the climb, having started up the `spiritual' mountain of Newland's metaphysical creation in the first book in the Diamond Peak series. Life's path is never easy for anyone if they are to fulfil their potential, the greater our gifts the more that others' normally expect us to give. So it is with the…See More

Sequela- Cleland Smith

I am finding it hard not to be over complementary. Smith has a sure-footed competence as a writer that has helped her put together a very original and highly entertaining book. This near future science fiction cleverly links the progress of science, the general `progressiveness' of social norms, at least in Britain and…See More

Lobo- David Gordon Burke

It is rare that I struggle to put a book down, with Lobo I really let my life outside the book slip. I'm a slow reader- so my list of 'must do yesterday' got very long.

This is a well written book that oozes with the author's passion for his subject. The backdrop is the…

The Trouble With Celebrity- Charlie Bray

When you have had too much of the press, magazines, the paper towels we call newspapers and TV going on and on about nothing more than their favourite luvvies and an infamous and usually talentless army of variously damaged and or synthetic egos, then that…

Hi Richard and thanks for taking the time to visit irregular therapy! And thanks for your very honest feedback. If you don't mind telling me, what made you see my website as business-like? The layout? The material?

Thanks for adding me as a friend. And you're absolutely right. As self-publishers, we should all support each other, no matter the genre we write in! Hope you don't mind, I am now following you on twitter and will definitely check out your website and your books..
