Book Review: Granny's Stories
Today, I will be reviewing Granny's Stories by Margaret Henderson. It was an OnlineBookClub.org Book of the Day.
About the Book
Here is a life story to be gleaned from tales of adventure, remarkable journeys, and interesting people. The author’s intention is to inform and inspire her granddaughters, and to leave them with an image of her as something more than the old woman they knew and loved.
Some internet research into the lists at the end of some of the sections will provide an historical and geographical backdrop to many of the lively anecdotes.
This book is full of some of the most interesting stories I've ever seen about someone's life in a long time. She organizes everything by date and time to explain events that transpired and that she lived through. It all flows easily and felt very personable because the story was directed toward the granddaughter of the author and this in turn makes it feel like she is talking directly to us, the readers.
The focus of the book is on characters, and the people she's met in her life and how they influenced her. I liked that as a focus, because often it is by examing the people that influenced us that we can learn about ourselves and each other much more clearly.
I will rate this book 5 out of 5 because of how well put together all of the stories are. The author didn't give a lot of historical backdrop, and for readers who don't know a lot about the events this can be rather confusing at times, but in general it isn't necessary to tell the story.

This short story takes place in the Graveyard of Empires and sets the stage for some of the coming action.
You put in the months of hard work and wrote something great. Well done and congratulations, and now you want to show it off to the world.
A standalone short story full of fast-paced action about a failing power plant.
I've updated my website in the last couple of days to hopefully be more user friendly and showcase the books a little bit more. I was getting tired of the old template and wanted to try out something new.
It's officially available now, and it is incredibly exciting that Raven's Peak is available for sale in audio format!
I'm about to give you all a conglomerated list of stats and other information about all of the campaigns I have run up to this point. I'll continue updating this post as I run new campaigns over time to keep it up to date!
I'll be taking questions for the next couple of weeks about anything: upcoming projects, my newest book, or any other topics. I will make a short video to post on youtube answering the questions, as well!
Here is a list of all of the various promotional options I've compiled over running all of my campaigns, and hopefully some of them will come in handy for you (or at least the ones that you end up using).
