Book Reviews and a Shout out for Conduction

I know—I'm several days late for the IWSG post. Sorry about that!  It's the season for lots of music playing. I finally got an evening of no rehearsals or performances, so I'm getting this done. The question of the month is, do I review for authors or readers?  I review books for authors because I know how much reviews are appreciated and I like to help fellow authors. But I also write them with the consumer in mind. What about the book is appealing? Who would like the book? Is there anything offensive? If there are major problems, I may note them in the review, not because I want to bash the author, but rather because I am alerting the reader and hoping that the author will learn something for writing future books.  What about you? Do you review for the author or the reader? Have you ever left a negative review?

And now, a big shout out to blogger friend (who I've met in real life on several occasions), Tara Tyler! She has a new book out. The 4th of her Pop Travel series, which is very cool!  Check it out.


CONDUCTION by Tara Tyler

Sci Fi Detective Thriller or Techno Thriller

Book 4 in Pop Travel series


In 2085, cutting-edge technology is the most valuable currency, and the black tech market offers high pay-offs for diamond-level code. Jared Nertz is an easy-going ex-juicer gone legit working for Pop Travel Technologies, and just when he finishes his long-awaited Conduction project--the process of storing data in the brain--someone immediately steals it and kills his mentor, framing him for the murder. Now it's up to his lawyer/wife Miki and their resourceful friends, Geri and Cooper to prove Jared's innocence by recovering the stolen tech before the criminal killer sells it. But that's only the beginning, as they discover a darker threat when they dig deeper into the case.


Tara Tyler has had a hand in everything from waitressing to rocket engineering. After moving all over the US, she now writes and teaches math, yes math, in Ohio. She has two novel series, Pop Travel (sci-fi detective thrillers) and Beast World (fantasy adventures), plus her UnPrincess novella series where the maidens save themselves. She's a commended blogger, contributed to several anthologies, and to fit everything into her busy schedule, she economizes her time, aka the Lazy Housewife—someday she might finish that book... In addition to writing and teaching, she does school presentations encouraging young minds to reach for their goals. Make every day an adventure!
