Witches Bell Book One by Odette C Bell

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00CR0K4CU Review of Witches Bell Book One by Odette C Bell I liked the way this book was written, the breezy, casual conversations and descriptions. I didn't like that the entire book was written in that same style. I like a bit of change now and then. But that's a personal choice, other people might… Continue reading Witches Bell Book One by Odette C Bell

As it turns out, eco-fiction is what I write.  Okay, it's one genre… Continue reading Eco-fiction
