About

Bio: I love to read paranormal romances. I do all kinds of crafty things like crochet, sew, draw (most of the images and graphics I use are either drawn by me or created in Photoshop or Illustrator) and find new ways to use duct tape and then I write about it all. Oh and I can be a bit of a jerk but a likable one. About My Book Reviews My reviews will always be honest and to the point. Well, maybe not right to the point because I tend to go off on tangents and sometimes you may think I went way off course but I usually have a point to make and get back on topic eventually. I use adult language…of course, I do. I’m an adult. When I say adult language, I mean it can get a bit raunchy and that could offend some people. I mean, it’s not like I drop the *f* bomb all of the time (that’s reserved for rare occasions) but I use colorful language to describe things like calling someone a dick wad or a snaggle twat. If that offends you then you might not want to read my reviews. Also, I’m going to write my honest opinions of the author’s work because it bothers me when I read reviews that are all roses then I spend money on that book and find out it bites wrinkled demon wienies. I’d rather hear the truth about my work than hear a critique that is trying really hard not to hurt my feelings. Here’s where I go off on one of my tangents to prove a point or to give you an example of what I’m trying to get across. I had a Photoshop class where the instructor who, in my opinion, needed to focus on his career as a graphic designer rather than being and instructor. He was great at Photoshop but a teacher he was not. He would get up in front of the class to show us how to do something but then get lost and show us all kinds of other things that had nothing to do with our assignment for the week. We as students had to just guess at what he really wanted us to do for the assignment. Our reading material gave us a better idea than what he would give us. When our assignment was due, he would show each of our work up on the giant monitors in the front of the classroom. My work was always completed and ready on the due date but at least half the class if not more would not have anything ready and tell him that they didn’t understand what he wanted so he would extend the due date. Those students would then have seen what all the rest of us had created and they would build on it and come up with even better work. When going over our work, he would always say things like, “The use of color is creative.” Or some vague crapola that could mean, “Wow! That’s fantastic!” or “That reminds me of neon vomit.” He never gave his honest opinion. Then he would give me a B- on it. A B- is about the lowest grade you can get on an art project when you have followed instructions and turned it in on time. Getting a B- on an art project is like getting a D in math. In order to stay in the program of Graphic Design, you have to earn all As and Bs as a final grade in each class. So, when he gave me a B-, he was really saying, “That sucked big donkey dick.” But then he would never be available to actually go over what he really did not like about my project. If he could have just told me what he really thought while it was up on the monitor, I could have improved upon it and turned it in on the extended date and received a better grade. So, yes, I think it is better to hurt someone’s feelings and tell the truth than to tell them you like it or worse give ambiguous reviews that say, “The book was an adventure.” What the heck does that mean? How does that help the reader determine if the book was worth reading or not? What if the author reads the review and thinks it means that they did a great job and then goes on to write a few more books in the series only to have no following because while the book was adventurous, the characters had blah personalities and were unlikable. Who knows, the author could read an honest review that tells them what stinks about the book and change a few things in their next book in the series. Heh heh, I am really full of myself now, thinking that a famous author would read my reviews but you never know.

  1. Hello, Ms. Dragonlion64!

    I adore the attitude in your bio and would be delighted if you might consider reviewing my novel, CURSE ME NOT, which was recently published by Champagne Books. Since you love paranormal romance, you might enjoy the new and southern twist I’ve brought to the genre.

    CURSE ME NOT introduces southern unsophisticate—and prematurely menopausal—Elzetta Swan. In addition to ill-timed hot flashes, she’s gained the ability to see auras and the more lucrative ability to clean revenge curses from those auras. Embracing the gift faster than grass through a goose, she’s about to finish her first year as a licensed “bodywasher” with a trendy new lifestyle in Knoxville, Tennessee, and a countrified inner child that’s skipping all the way to the bank.

    Then a routine cleansing turns preternaturally ugly. Suddenly finding herself in over her head, Elzetta begins to suspect a powerful invoker has come to town—one who’s hooked on the rush of setting particularly nasty curses—and that he’s visiting at the behest of a mysterious local’s serial hunger for revenge. As she attempts to track down the culprits, Elzetta will face two fateful confrontations. Each will threaten her new life and the hallelujah hankering she has for the reluctant white knight who’s helping her, but together these confrontations could do much worse. They could create in Elzetta a vengeful rage all her own.

    I would gladly forward you the ebook in whatever format you prefer. (www.elizabethfisherauthor.com)

    Hope to hear from you and keep up the attitude!
