Boom Baby Reviews is Closing

It’s with sadness that I announce I’m closing this blog. While it’s been fun, my heart just isn’t in it anymore. I don’t have the time or energy to do it, and any task has become an added stress. Maybe if my life changes in the future, I can return to it. In the meantime, this is a step I have to take.

Any books that I have agreed to review will still be reviewed, just limited to Amazon and GoodReads.

Thank you, and good luck to all.

“A treacherous and deadly world of intrigue and conspiracy…” Dragon’s Tail by Joseph Malik [Author Interview]

Dragon’s Trail

“Dragon’s Trail” (Book One of The Outworlders) by Joseph Malik

Published as… Fantasy/Thriller

Joseph Malik’s Boom Baby Blast

1. One Random Fact: I once had sex with a professional clown.

2. Fictional Character You’d Really Like to Be: Sterling Archer. No contest.

3. Your Authorial Theme Song: Adiemus by Karl Jenkins. Musically brilliant and also linguistically incomparable. The 1999 version.

A close second would be Queen’s The Show Must Go On, just for the story behind it. Holy shit, I could listen to it a thousand times. The last song on his last album, months before his death; the band wasn’t even sure if he could do it, but as the story goes, Freddie slammed a drink, said, “I’ll fucking do it, darling,” and nailed it in one take. Then pretty much keeled over and died. An amazing testament to strength and resolve in the face of death.

One step behind those two in third place would be With This Love, the Peter Gabriel piece from The Last Temptation of Christ; another thing I have on loop sometimes when I write. Jeff Buckley’s rendition of Leonard Cohen’s Alleluia is probably in there someplace, but holy shit, this is getting grim. Next question.

4. Favorite Part of Being a Writer: I love the fact that drinking and staring at the wall listening to Karl Jenkins and Peter Gabriel qualifies as “work.”

5. Name of Your First Pet (Can include family or significant others…):The first pet that was really mine was a cat named Steve. He lived to be nineteen, the grouchy old bastard.

6. Music, Television or Silence While Writing: Music. Definitely. I have a number of surgically crafted Pandora stations that I flip to depending on the tenor of what I’m writing.

7. Early Riser or Night Owl: Early riser. I’m a compulsive early-morning runner. At least, I try to be. It gets harder and harder as the rain sets in.

8. Favorite Season: This is the Pacific Northwest, where there are only two seasons: Rain, and Summer. Seriously, though. I love the 6-8 months of the year up here when it rains like a Tim Burton movie. The rest of the country calls it a hurricane; we call it “November.” We live in a renovated barn in a small fishing town on Puget Sound. Dark, tangled forest right behind us, coyotes howling at night, the salt breeze off the water, and rain hammering against the windows. Hot cocoa, a fire in the woodstove. What’s better for writing? I love it out here.

Since that’s most of the year, I guess I could narrow it down and say that I really like it the couple of weeks before Christmas. Not even Christmas itself, just the way the world turns into something beautiful and hopeful for a few weeks after Thanksgiving. The joyful music and the lights.

9. Did You Always Want to be a Writer: Probably, but I didn’t know it at the time. I’ve had a varied career, and writing seems to be the only constant in all of it. If it wasn’t a job that involved writing, it was a job that I could certainly write about.

“On her 30th birthday, Catherine Sharp has a lot to celebrate…” Uninvited by Jamie Wyman [Spotlight with Excerpt]

Uninvited

“Uninvited” (Book Three of the Etudes in C# Series) by Jamie Wyman

Published as… Urban Fantasy

Jamie Wyman’s Excerpt

Marius winced as he pulled himself up onto the bed. Winded, he lay there on his back, gasping to catch his breath.

I sat on the edge of the mattress and just watched him while the tug-of-war raged in my head. Marius had been a friend. He’d helped me out of a jam on more than one occasion and even saved my life a time or two. He’d also bugged out on me during a fight when things had looked dire. Though he used magic to conceal his horns and goat’s legs, it was another example of how Marius could never buck his nature. By birth, he was a satyr—a hedonistic, selfish creature—and by trade, or necessity, he was a liar and a thief. I’d known him for a very long time. Long enough to understand that what I saw could be an illusion. The other edge of that particular sword, however, was that watching him writhe in pain yanked at my heart.

Flynn didn’t know the real Marius, the one beneath the glamour. I’d seen that person once. The pitiable bastard had lived for centuries under a curse that rendered him impotent, unable to feel the slightest of pleasures. In time, what should have been a jovial soul atrophied and grew sour. I’d seen Marius’s truth—naked and pathetic—and no amount of anger could exorcise my sympathy for him. I’d been a prisoner once, too. I still wanted him to be free.

And now he was in my bed, a broken and bloody mess.

When his rattling breaths calmed, he rolled onto his side. His shirt stretched, the tears widening over four evenly spaced gashes. The wounds spread from his back and around his ribs. Similar marks could be seen on one of his calves.

I thought of the many versions of Marius I’d known over the years, the layers of masks he hid behind. When we’d met, he had been a lecherous playboy type, his suits always pressed and shoes shined. He’d also been an ally. A warrior with a gleaming saber, eyes aglow with magic. A con artist with sticky fingers. I’d seen through all of it once. I’d seen him naked, metaphorically—a tortured, withered, malnourished soul. Well, okay, I’d seen him physically naked, too, but I hadn’t exactly wanted to at the time.

But he resembled his truest self as he lay there on my bed. Holding his stomach, eyes clenched tight with pain, he once again tried to moisten his lips.

“Didn’t know. Where to go,” he said, his voice dry as sandpaper.

I sighed and said nothing. In the small bathroom attached to my bedroom, I filled a glass with water and soaked a washcloth. I had no intention of playing Florence Nightingale to the bastard, but he was visibly dehydrated. And he was getting blood on my sheets.

When I returned, he was still, breathing in a reedy but steady rhythm. My tuxedo tomcat, Linux, had come out from his den beneath the bed to curl up against Marius’s feet and administer purr therapy. The cat looked up at me with his golden stare, as if to say, I’ve got this.

I left the glass and washcloth on the bedside table where Marius would see them.

Music began to blare from the next room, an electronic bass beat that called to my blood. Outside of that door were people who gave a damn about me, people who didn’t think about how they could use me. Some of them, like Flynn and Karma, knew about the other world I navigated—a place of magic, mythical creatures and all-too-real gods. The rest of them remained blissfully ignorant.

I closed my eyes and made a promise to myself: for the next few hours, that other world would cease to exist, even if I had to drown it in a flood of whiskey and red velvet cake. For one night, I’d be normal.

About the Book

On her 30th birthday, Catherine Sharp has a lot to celebrate: a great IT job in Las Vegas, a growing mastery of technomancy, and a deity or two on speed dial. She’s barely had a chance to blow out her candles when she finds a half-dead body on her doorstep.

Marius.

For centuries, the satyr has lied, cheated and swindled the upper crust of several pantheons in service to Eris, the Greek goddess of Discord. However, he has angered his mistress and found himself vulnerable. With bloodthirsty gods and monsters after him, Marius runs to the only person he hopes he can trust: Cat.

Despite his previous betrayal, Cat still harbors a soft spot for Marius. Helping her means taking on demons and deities, but telling him to fend for himself leaves Cat wrestling with feelings she’d rather not think about. The birthday girl has a choice to make, and it isn’t a simple one. She must weigh the sins of his checkered past against their strange chemistry. Matters of the heart clash with the politics of divinity and family business. Everything hinges on the answer to one question: can she trust him?

“We said, HELL YEAH!” Taiwan and Japan in Ten Days by Morland Matthews [Spotlight with Excerpt]

Taiwan and Japan in Ten Days: Don’t Forget the Kit Kats

“Taiwan and Japan in Ten Days: Don’t Forget the Kit Kats” by Morland Matthews

Published as… Travel Memoir

Morland Matthews’ Excerpt

Sandra interrupts my trance like state to tell me that two seats just became available across from her. I nod and tell her to take them. I pull our bags from the overhead compartment and move them to our new location. When we settle in I lower the tray of the seat in front of me to rest my iPad and continue writing.

After a few moments of chatting and writing about our trip the ticket agent, Sandra was worried about, finally walks into our train car. She smiles, bows and despite her short stature looms, to the best of her abilities, over the passengers in the first row. She seems experienced and in control as she meticulously asks everyone for their ticket. I elbow Sandra in the arm and tell her to get her ticket ready. I did not want the agent to think we were stowaways.

Sandra did not immediately respond to my gentle yet decisive blows to her arm because she had headphones on, and her eyes were closed. When she does come to she has the audacity to point up and tell me that her ticket is in her bag. I say ok and wait for her solution. She then, cunningly albeit half successfully, droops her eyelids, ears and corners of her lips in a ploy to convince me to stand up and get it for her. Just as I was about to tell her to stand up and get it herself, the second part of her long term strategy to reprogram me into being her service droid was activated. I remembered that she had washed and folded all of our clothing a week earlier. I therefore reconsidered my response and decided to perform one of my many generous deeds on this trip and got her the bag.

When the ticket agent asked for our pass, I proudly displayed my JR PASS and point to Sandra. Our rail passes are exclusively available to travelers visiting Japan from foreign countries for sight-seeing. I wanted the lady to know we were “special” JR PASS holders and should be treated accordingly. At this moment, the ticket lady leaned over me and began to speak. I assumed she was leaning over to welcome me to Japan and wish us a pleasant trip. Instead, she informed us, through extensive trial and error, that we should not be on the train, and that we need to get off at the next stop.

Specifically, she tells us, something that I misinterpreted to mean, that we need to be on the Nozomi track. After delivering the disappointing news she proceeds to check tickets down the aisle. Undeterred, I carefully read the JR PASS instructions on the back of our ticket and discover that we are not allowed to use the Nozomi track. I then walk up to her, with a huge mental smirk and attempt to educate her on JR PASS policies by showing her where it clearly states that we are NOT supposed to be on the Nozomi track. After my display of brilliance, she tells me, “You are right and guess what, you are on the Nozomi train right now.” I say, ok my bad and proceed to sit down with my mental grin askew.

This serendipitous misfortune meant that Sandra and I were illegally coasting on an express bullet train. We were in fact stowaways. She and I refused to feel guilty over the matter because this minor convenience was the least Japan could do for us after afflicting us with several bad experiences. So far, The Land of the Rising Sun has surprised us with a menagerie of unreasonable expenses, cold and rain. We were expecting Japan to be the highlight of our Asian tour but by this point Taiwan came out on top in every category. It was wonderful.

We expected the entire trip to be fascinating. Still, with so many questions, it was normal to feel heedful the night before our long awaited journey to East-Asia. Can a person pack their necessary essentials, for a ten-day trip overseas, into one book bag? In just a few hours I would know what airplane vegetarian food consists of and whether my idea that not sleeping for the sixteen plus hours of travel would help us beat jet-lag. More importantly, I would finally get the chance to evaluate common queries, myths and stereotypes about these wonderful nations: especially those related to vegetarianism, technology, health, poverty, views towards American minorities and westernization. Further clarity over these matters was just over the horizon, almost literally.

About the Book

In 2015 Will a former housemate and good friend invited my wife Sandra and me to visit him and his cousin in Taiwan and Japan. We said, HELL YEAH! These are not countries that the average Hispanic American of African descent gets to experience, especially those who grew up in a low-income household in Brooklyn, like we did. The language barrier, costs and distance make it a challenge for most people to visit. We were eager to evaluate some common questions, myths and stereotypes about these wonderful countries. Specifically, those related to vegetarianism, technology, health, poverty, views towards American minorities and westernization. This book is an account of the wonderful people, food, customs, surprises and challenges we experienced during our ten-day visit.

“Choices can seldom be undone…” Promise Trail by Shirleen Davies [Spotlight]

gets—vivid settings, memorable characters, love, and lots at stake. Shirleen
Davies knows how to bring the old west to life. You feel as if you’ve traveled,
with the characters, to the frontier. I hope there will be more to come!” Book Review
 
Bull Mason has
built a life far away from his service in the Union Army and the ravages of the
Civil War. He’s achieved his dreams—loyal friends, work he enjoys, a home of
his own, and a promise from the woman he loves to become his wife.
Lydia Rinehart
can’t believe how much her life has changed. Escaping captivity from a Crow
village, she finds refuge and a home at the sprawling Redemption’s Edge
ranch…and love in the arms of Bull Mason, the ranch foreman. For the first time
since her parents’ death, she feels cherished and safe.
In an instant their dreams are crushed…
 
Bull is resolute in his determination to track down and
rescue Lydia’s brother, kidnapped during the celebration of their friend’s
wedding. He’s made a promise—one he intends to keep. Picking the best men, they
are ready to ride, until he’s given an ultimatum.
Choices can seldom be undone…
 
As their journey continues, the trackers become the prey,
finding their freedom and lives threatened.
And promises broken can rarely be reclaimed…
 
Can
Bull and Lydia trust each other again and find their way to back to the dreams
they once shared?
Promise
Trail is book six in the Redemption Mountain historical western romance series.
It is a full length novel with an HEA and no cliffhanger.

 

Excerpt:
 
Bull
wanted to rage at the world, shout that Lydia was his and no other man had the
right to her. Watching her disappear into the tent with White Buffalo was too
much to bear.
When he
started to push from the ground, a hand clamped across his mouth before strong
hands pulled him away from the ledge, wrestling him back to the ground. Luke
and Travis worked to control what could be a deadly situation if Bull acted on
his emotions.
As he
struggled to gain freedom from their hold on his arms, Tat and Johnny dropped
to their knees, each grabbing one of his legs, holding him still.
“We will
get her back.” Luke stared at his close friend, his gaze unwavering as hate
poured from Bull’s face. “Going in there now will only get us all killed, and
Lydia will still be with White Buffalo.”
Bull
shook his head, his body convulsing as he tried to wrench away from their
grasp.
“Dammit,
Bull. You have to get control. Besides, we have something White Buffalo
doesn’t.” A small grin pulled up the corners of Luke’s mouth when Bull’s eyes
went wide. “Now, if you’re ready to listen, we’ll let go.”
Bull
cursed, stopping his attempts to break free. The others backed away when he
stood, not knowing what to expect from a man who’d always been slow to anger
and reticent to use his fists. He turned to Luke, a look on his face none of
them had ever seen before.
“You tell
me what we have that will change any of this.” The look in his eyes was
hostile, yet pleading. He needed to hear a solution, something that would take
away the pain seizing his heart.
“There’s
nothing that will change what we just saw, but we do have a way to get her
back.” Luke watched Bull’s eyes narrow. “Unless you won’t take her back after
what you saw.”
“Hell
yes, I want her back. I don’t care what he does to her. She’ll always be mine.”
