Author of the Queen City Boys books

Book grump


I often pull a book off a shelf in a book store, carefully read the entire cover and inside flaps and then decide if I want to read it.  I don’t generally read reviews or other stuff first.  So it is incredibly disappointing to make it almost to the very end of a book and find out that it is the first in a trilogy and that that the first book resolves nothing.

This is okay if I know going in it’s trilogy and have all the other books on hand.  But not so much when I’m pausing five pages before the end and getting on Amazon to try and get the other books.  The last of which isn’t even published yet.  ARG.

  1. But it was good otherwise? What was the name? Um, not that I’m supposed to be buying myself any new books. *ashamed at my weakness*

  2. Ha! Yes it was good, though really left the reader hanging. I don’t think however, that it is something you would be interested in, maybe though: The Traveler.
