We don't really get any human interaction during the working day.
And that's why reviews are so important to us - because it gives us some indication that all those hours of torture from characters who refuse to do what we want, and take us off on tangents not imagined in the outline, are worthwhile.
I was especially pleased to see a review of my novella , Granny Smith Investigates on The Not The Baseball Pitcher Blog.
In Gary Dobbs’ latest book, we have a cozy mystery with the elderly lady and amateur detective known as Granny Smith. Though Smith is her married name and she is indeed a grandmother, she’s had the nickname a lot longer. It comes for her love of the same titled apple. Granny is as different from the Christie character as one could be. Miss Marple was a prim and proper lady of her time and Granny is a pipe smoking, heavy metal listening woman of hers. Oh, she does the grandmother things: baking cookies for sales and tending to her grandchildren.SEE THE FULL REVIEW HERE
Granny Smith Investigates is available on Amazon for the Kindle with other versions to be rolled out shortly.
As Granny says - "Wrinkles merely indicate where smiles have been."
Go get the novella now.
“It’s Miss Marple on steroids.”
A brutal murder in a small Welsh village and the police are stuck without a clue. With no motive and no real suspect the investigation soon grinds to a halt. Enter Mary Alice Smith, otherwise known as Granny Smith, the rock music loving, pipe smoking, chaos causing amateur sleuth with a difference.
Granny has a talent for mayhem and soon those talents are put to good use as our intrepid pensioner starts the unravel the case, which finds her provoking Chief Inspector Miskin as she comes up against a full scale police investigation, proving that you’re never too old to make a nuisance of yourself and that sixty three is actually the new twenty three.
Murder's never been so much fun.
