New Review for Daddy Issues

September 16th, 2013 · No Comments

Original here on Amazon. I was quickly consumed by “Daddy Issues.” The characters, the settings, the altogether-too-close look inside Wagner Siebenthaler’s mind–I was hooked from the start. But as I realized there would be no storybook ending for the cast (yes, I’m one of ‘those’ people), I really didn’t want to read on. Fortunately or […]

The original is here. “I usually read horror novels and found this in the thriller/mystery category in the Kindle store. I realized right away that this was not up my alley but I liked how the story was written so I kept reading. Overall I enjoyed this quick read. The only things that annoyed were […]

Only then will you understand what happened and why

June 26th, 2013 · No Comments

I’ve always had a hard time explaining why I like to write fiction – at least succinctly. Fortunately, while putting the final touches on Daddy Issues, I came across this passage near the end of A River Runs through It. Mr. Maclean’s characters explain why I write better than I ever could. “You like to […]

Another nice Daddy Issues review – “Powerful and Disturbing”

June 12th, 2013 · No Comments

The original link here. Having been familiar with this author from his prior foray into historical fiction withWrath – the life and assassination of a United States Governor, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect when I found that he had taken on an entirely new subject in this book. And to be honest, it’s […]

A new blurb for Daddy Issues by Stephen England. If you like thrillers (or just good storytelling) give his Pandora’s Grave a read. “In a story as powerful as it is provocative, McEwen paints a brutal, unflinching portrait of life in middle America” — Stephen England, author of the Shadow Warriors series

Daddy Issues Review: Another killer book by Howard!

May 29th, 2013 · No Comments

On Amazon here. “Admittedly, I’m a huge fan (as in, I have all of his books). This book is a total departure from his usual fare, but yet – it still has what I like about Howard’s books: Soul and a character I can relate to. Don’t hesitate to pull the trigger – it’s worth […]

Daddy Issues Review: Look in the mirror.

May 27th, 2013 · No Comments

On Amazon here: “Take a look in the mirror in between chapters of this one and ask what you’d do in the same circumstances. McEwen weaves a tale of a guy who is as “every day” as the rest of us. The problem is, however, that Wags’ personal nightmares keep coming back to him. He […]

Daddy Issues Review: A gritty, modern cautionary tale

May 20th, 2013 · No Comments

On Amazon here: “Scrolling down my list of read books, it’s pretty clear that Daddy Issues is not at all typical for me. I tend to lean toward escapism for my reading, thinking that I get my fill of reality from the actual real world of day to day life. Which is to say, I wasn’t sure […]
