The Price of Freedom: In Search of the American Dream
Author: Elizabeth Devine
Reviewer: Mark Davis
Cultural transition is always difficult. When it is fraught with extreme hardship and the loss of love ones the path is that much worse. Elizabeth Devine’s factual novel, The Price of Freedom, reflects on life in an Italian village prior to World War One. As the guns of war approached disruption in day to day routine was inevitable. Many sought refuge in America. This required uprooting families and long arduous journeys to a place which held the promise of better opportunities for all. Sadly many never realized the full dream. The author artfully describes how several generations of immigrants finally found redemption in a land far from home. As The Price of Freedom eloquently reveals sometimes the cost of a journey far exceeds the rewards envisioned. This novel provided me with a new appreciation for the elements my forebearers faced as they took passage to the country I call home. An exceptional book for anyone’s library.

Betrayed is a novel which moves from the pleasures of the bedroom to the episodic politics of the boardroom. Set in the fictitious community of Lakeland, Taylor Long’s placid family life is interrupted by accusations she murdered two co-workers. Entrapped by circumstance the protagonist has more than enough reasons to want her employer dead, as mounting evidence points in her direction. Thematic throughout this well written novel are numerous events which prevent the main character from moving above the proverbial glass ceiling. Author Elizabeth Devine’s plot twists keep the reader on edge as the story plays out to its surprising conclusion. Betrayed kept me riveted to my chair chapter after chapter. This is one book that should be in your collection as it is in mine. Sold by Amazon, Lulu and Barnes and Noble.
The Devil’s Concubine by Sebati Edward Mafate
Dark forces are thematic throughout this well written novel by Sebati Edward Mafate. Protagonist, Raymond Pata, decides to break with his family and move to California. His ultimate goal is to sit atop of the music industry. Influenced by the cultural dynamics of his Haitian origins, including mysticism, he moves through the circles of life until evil overwhelms his entire being. In order to support his dream he connects with a carjacking ring stealing high end vehicles. Living in the shadows of life Raymond becomes exceptionally talented in his second career, auto theft. Entrenched by the powers of darkness Raymond takes to ritualistic killing of those who yielded their vehicles to him. Symbolism is well utilized by this author to foreshadow future occurrences. The Protagonist’s eye for beauty is his final downfall as Hell paradoxically targets him. Author Mafate cleverly weaves a story rich in detail displaying a soul that thrives on carnage and the very blood of other human beings. This page-turner was difficult to put down even for the most human of circumstances. No doubt The Devil’s Concubine will fly off the shelves as readers become aware of it.
BOOKS WITHOUT BOOK REVIEWS HARVEST NO MINDS
Books sitting in cyberspace or on dusty shelves deserve to be seen.
Authors must take the next step in order to garner an audience. Small budgets do not allow most authors expansive advertising venues such as utilized by media giants. Professional book reviews draw out the essence of the work and literally speak to potential buyers. One or two sentence reviews transfer little information and do not draw in an audience. Superbbookreviews.com provides the author with an energized book critique and posts it across many internet sites for one low fee. Commentary is unique and balanced providing the reader with a sense of the book without giving away its core. Superbbookreviews.com also proofreads books at nominal fees to assure the author the book is ready to be submitted to the publisher. Superbbookreviews.com an author’s best friend.
A huge problem for many editors, proofreaders and book reviews is the delinquent author. After a fee schedule is agreed to, with the payment expected at the completion of the work performed, the author decides to play financial charades with you. My Paypal account is corrupted in some manner or form. Another approach is they do not return your e-mails once you indicate the work is completed hoping you will further reduce your fees. Still another format is I will pay you if the book sells. These and many other scenarios may be hard to contemplate yet they happen more than one would think. The obvious resolution to this problem is to get your money up from instead of utilizing the honor system and obtaining it on the backend. I have utilized the honor system because most authors who have asked me to help them are honorable people. Yet I am rethinking my approach. It is no fun when a person stiffs you for nominal fees requested. My question to the audience is: Should you collect your fees up front or request payment at completion of the work?

Pictured here is part of the cover from my book Obamacare: Dead on Arrival, A Prescription for Disaster. This book was mocked when it first came out by many in power presently. They do not mock it any more. Dead on Arrival generated many radio interviews yet Fox refused an interview unless “big bucks” were handed over to them. The book foreshadowed the disastrous outcome for a piece of health legislation that was never ready for Prime Time. Jump forward four years to view a legislative effort whose shadow is no different than the horrific law it is suppose to replace. Wherever you stand politically replacing one disaster with another is just wrong. Similar to Nancy Pelosi’s famous statement “we will find out what is in the legislation onced it is passed into law” the same will occur with the current offering. I am glad it was rejected. As a conservative I am disappointed Congress could not do better. Mark Davis MD manager of bestproofreadingeditingbookreviews.com firstname.lastname@example.org
Books have lifespans. Some last for a few seconds in time others a literal eternity. A book review of note and some advertising may be all that is needed to move it off the digital shelf. Maybe the time has come for a professional book review. Mark Davis MD manager of bestproofreadingeditingbookreviews.com email@example.com
