Twin Powers begins with Stephanie Peters being abducted from the street in Cuba. A furious dictator enlists the aid of a mercenary, the notorious Marcela, to track down those responsible – and save face for Cuba. Marcela recruits Stephanie’s father, doctor and polyglot Raymond Peters, to help in the search.

Yeah, so, the reviews aren’t yet public, but In the Shadow of Angels has received a 5-star rating from Readers’ Favorite, which qualifies me to display this spiffy emblem in advertising (and they take that shit seriously, click through to see it at full size)… Unfortunately, since their site only publishes the four and five star reviews, pretty much every book on display there is five stars.

Now that my 90 day exclusivity contract for KDP is up, I have published it on Smashwords as well, and I am rethinking the entire Amazon angle. Continue reading Smashwords vs Amazon
My latest review is up. This one is for A Mistake of Youth by Elena Genero Santoro. Overall not great, but if it’s free and you’ve got nothing else to read, you could do a lot worse.
I’ve finally gotten around to joining the twenty-first century. I now have a dedicated Facebook page and a twitter handle @DonnieJBurgess. I’m not saying they will be updated with any frequency, but they do exist.
