Lisa's Friday Reviews

Why mess with the facts? READ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


As a life-long reader, my love for the written word lead me, finally, to the exciting reality of being a rising author. What once was a pipe dream is staring me right square in the face.  Not only am I a READER, I am an AUTHOR. 

Authors love nothing more than an honest review. That review can be painful, it can be encouraging, it can be exhilarating. 

This is what happened to this author last week:



VERNITA NAYLOR FOR READERS’ FAVORITE
APRIL 22, 2017 “If I had learned anything about life after Dad’s death, it was to expect the unexpected,” says Americka – aka Meri – in Bombs Bursting In Air by Lisa A. McCombs. When Meri went with her dad, a retired veteran, to see a war movie, she thought that she was being punished.

The good news is that I have several reviews ready to share AND I read some pretty awesome stuff while holed away in my mountain paradise. So... get ready to be overwhelmed with reading suggestions. No
