April 2022 #WordPrompt – Green

A few moments ago, I chanced upon WordPress.com’s “What’s the Word” newsletter. Like last month, I instantly saw this month’s #Wordprompt.

Review by The BREWer: “RAT” by Priscilla B Shuler

RAT by Priscilla B. Shuler My rating: 5 of 5 stars This was not my cup of tea, but I didn’t mind. Coming of age was not my go to type. Yet, instead of the rushed storylines or depth-less characters I dread from the genre, what I got from Shuler is a fast-paced yet insight-filled…

Favored by Priscilla B. Shuler My rating: 5 of 5 stars Forget about what the perfect manuscript is. Unforgettable writers get away with breaking the rules from time to time anyway.

What Could Be Next?

Space Bound : Zero Hour by Luigi Robles (A Mini Review) My rating: 4 of 5 stars Fain had been too excited. It’s quite seldom that his dad had been coming home. Thus, his visit was all worth the while, enough to give up the chance to play with his team for their supposed sure…

Here’s one for the more-technical mind.
