Spilling the Beans on My-Sister-the-Writer

It's my turn to join the Virtual Book Tour!

Galaxy Nomads: 
Chronicles of the MacKenzie Clan

And since it's my blog I get to choose the format. Today I'm going to reminisce a little about myself and my sister.

When we were kids, she was The Peacemaker and I was The Big Mouth. She was The Sweet One, and I was The Hard Head. And yeah, I took advantage of that, I can now admit. 

Most of growing up we were stuck sharing a bedroom. One time we had a big tiff, and I angrily stuck masking tape down the middle of the room, and DARED her to cross to my side! Yeah, I was A Snot.

Thankfully, we have both grown up, and I can see her wonderful qualities now. And I can't begin to tell you how proud of her I am. I knew she was creative, being an amazing musician. But what I did NOT know was how creative she had become at universe building. Characters, worlds, emotions and adventures, using the written word as her creative medium.

She knows I tend to be hard headed and opinionated, even now. 

So here's the inside scoop: to this day she still holds her breath to see what I've written when I do a book review for her, because she knows I'll cover it all, the good, the bad and the ugly.

That's why I was DELIGHTED when I wrote my review for Galaxy Nomads (that review can be found Here).  This is truly her best work yet. Honestly, really, truly, pinky-swear. Take it from the hard-headed older sister about My-Sister-the-Writer, Karen Elizabeth Brown.

Jet on over to either Amazon or Smashwords to get your Kindle copy of Galaxy Nomads...  you won't be sorry.

And if you need the free Kindle app from Amazon, it's right HERE (it's what I use, and it works fine). 

Happy summer reading!



  1. Yay for Karen! It's on my Kindle to read. :)

    1. Thanks for stopping by, Mary. It was a fun read, hope you enjoy it too.

  2. Wow, Retta! I'd forgotten about the masking tape down the middle of the room AND how I shivered at crossing it. But now I can smile and laugh as I remember those times. Thank you so much for the kind words and for being a tough mentor. Also, for a great book cover! (Love those old time photos!)

    1. Yeah, that masking tape story is a classic! I can laugh about it now, but it sure was "serious" business back in the day, ha ha.
