The opening story read like a long drawn out poem. If you are not into poetry that maybe a turn off. It did not bother me too much because I like poetry. I did feel the story ended abruptly.
The stories pulled at my heart strings because it was one sad story after another. I kept hoping for some fun story in the mix to give my sad heart a break.
Even when Ms Dodd managed to have a happy ending in a story she could not help herself by preceding it with a tragedy or accident.
Baa Black Sheep was a powerful story. It reminded me of the movie “Imitation of Life.”
I had to wait till about ¾ of the book to get a chuckle from the lottery story.
If you looking for fun stories this is not the book for you but if you looking for sad stories Then you have come to the right place. Choose depending on your mood. Comment | Permalink

Thinking outside the box to success
The Jetstream of Success started out as a difficult read that made me contemplate abandoning after the first chapter but I’m glad I persevered and kept on reading as I was in for an educational enlightening treat.
One would think that the title would be a sort of self-help book but instead Pencillah forces the reader to think and see the human experiences through a different prism. He takes you on wild adventures that I can only experience through movies and books.
The book is filled with motivational and inspiring quotations. I so love the explanations on love. Another added treat.
The book act as a pep talk to the ego. It can make you feel better about yourself as you seek greater heights for yourself.
There were quite a few blank pages. Don’t see the purpose for that. A few of the graphics were repetitive. Again I don’t see the purpose.

Short and powerful
This ebook was very short but it was still enough to pack some valuable punch. I have read many books on Kindle marketing and was pleasantly surprised to find some information I could actually use in my free promo days. Hornsby went straight to the story and provided information for authors using the KDP select program. She could have filled it with useless fodder to lengthen it but sometimes short and to the point is good.

An overview of Social Media
This book was an overview of the various social media tools available and links to their websites. It was rather short so I would class it as a booklet.
If you are already familiar with all the different social medias and their uses then this may not be a book for you. If you are like me, and only deal with Facebook and have heard of Twitter, but lack any knowledge of 'how to' or 'what next', then you will discover some unknowns in this book.
In spite of there being many books available on the subject there is always some bit of valuable information to be picked up especially by the novice entrepreneurial author.

An alternative to Social Media
If you don't have an author platform and you are not big on social media then this book will put you at ease. You can stop pressing the panic button. This book will not make you a killing on Kindle as the title implied, but it will enlighten you to the way you handle your business on Kindle. It does make an interesting read for an author trying to navigate the Amazon world.
