So you can read my books

Tuesday, May 21, 2013


I have TweetDeck, and I drop in when life eases up and lets me.

And what did I find last evening?

BLOOD WILL TELL by: Roland…#books

And what did I find when I followed the link?

by: Roland Yeomans

Amazon lists this one at 62 pages. Maybe I read quickly but it certainly felt more like 40. Not that it was lacking in anything for the experience. Presently this novella is being listed at $0.99.

Blood will Tell, no I don’t want to keep using all capitals, even if that is how the author wanted it.

Things like that hurt my brain.

Anyway, this is a sci-fi/horror experience that really sort of sidelines you. It’s amazing and I found it to be something that I couldn’t put down.

The main character works at a blood bank, likes his job and co-workers well enough too. Life is uneventful save for the occasional delivery that he makes which is usually a race against time to get the needed blood to someone in the hospital.

But then one day people around him begin to act strangely. Somehow they aren’t themselves, losing their personalities and much of their humor. They become more efficient and he doesn’t know how to cope with what may or may not be happening.

How does one fight an alien invasion that comes from within?

My final judgment:

Totally worth the money. Pick it up and give it a read. If you don’t like aliens, blood, or the idea of an interspecies(xenos) relationship, then this isn’t for you.
My rating: 8 out of 10 stars

That happened to be one of the nicest surprises Twitter has ever given me. 

How about you?  Have you had a pleasant surprise on Twitter?  Facebook?


  1. Oh, that's awesome! Yay you! I love surprises like that. Never fails to be a good pick-me-up!

  2. Hi Roland .. just bought it .. so it'll be an interesting read ..

    I'e never been picked up by a tweet - but someone tweeted my post of today and another blogger and I appear in a PaperLi link to the Melton Mowbray Times in Oakham, UK ... amazed me!

    So snap with you today .. and congratulations on the wonderful review ... cheers Hilary

  3. See, I'm not the only one who loves you.

    Hugs and chocolate,

  4. Very cool. I've read this and really enjoyed it.

  5. Heather:
    It certainly picked me up. Thanks for being happy for me.

    Yes, it made my evening.

    Thanks so much for buying it. All the good parts of Luke are wishes and all the bad is the truth of me! :-)

    How wonderful that your post of today got tweeted! If the blood runs leave me alone today, I will be there, too.

    Thanks for saying that. :-) And thanks for always having my back! May your husband feel increasingly better.

    Victoria of BLOOD WILL TELL approves that you liked it. And considering her ... nature -- that is a good thing!! :-)

  6. You deserve the attention! A nice surprise, too.

    I started the story, but I'm thinking of you as the MC. Is that just me or is it written that way?

    It's 'in progress' on the pc Kindle.

  7. D.G.:
    Yes, I wrote it as if I were Luke Winters. If Hemingway could do it I figured why not me? His ghost just growled "Because you're not me, scamp!"

    Thanks for starting the story. :-)

  8. Yay, Roland! That is a great review! I love those kind of surprises. They make me hopeful...

  9. Nope, no surprised for me on Twitter. I'm the one ordinarily giving them!

    But enough about me, yay, Roland! You so deserve it!

  10. That's soooooo cool!!!!!!!!!


  11. Lara:
    Yes, me too. And after a 14 hour day that my company will only pay me for 10 of them -- I could use hope!

    Thanks, Michael!

    I bragged about your posts on my blog but I will see about surprising you on Twitter now! :-)

    Words Crafter:
    Thanks for being happy for me! :-)
