#53: The Other Side - Chevy Stevens

An original ebook short story from New York Times bestselling author Chevy Stevens featuring Psychiatrist Nadine Lavoie and Staff Sergeant Sandy McBride, from Never Knowing. Sandy is working the biggest case of her life—the Campsite Killer, who has been hunting women for almost forty years. She’s finally close to nailing him, if she can just keep her head in the game. But when an old friend calls with a lead about Sandy’s mother’s murder, Sandy is pulled into the past—a past she thought she’d closed the door on. Her life is about to get real complicated, real fast.

REVIEW:
You all know how much I love Chevy Steven's books but sadly, this is the one that I don't love. I will even go further to say I wished I saved my money. I just saw a short story by her, not bothering to read the description or anything and bought it because I love everything else I've read. That was poor judgement on my part. I would have noticed, had I read the synopsis, that I didn't really need to back-track. Honestly, my curiosity might have won out either way though.
This short story should be read before reading Always Watching. If you've already read it, then don't bother with this one, if not, then yes, read it.
The ending is whack too. Ended way too abruptly. I actually said out loud, 'What the heck?!' I just expected so much more.
I surely won't hold it against the author though. She is an incredible storyteller and one I will surely read every time. I suggest you do too!

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.


Since I had recently moved, the first thing to do was to walk around the place and see where a piece of art needed to be placed. Then it was about finding the perfect photo in my collection to hang there. Next, I was onto the website to start building the print.



Once you start, it will seem like there is too many options, but it's so easy to use. You choose the size, and within a few minutes you will be done and waiting for your art to show up.



The user interface is a simple design that you can easily get through with no hassle, even if you are not computer savvy a…

Why Upping Your PR Skills Can Help You as a Blogger

When it comes to running a blog, there are a lot of things you need to think about to be a success. Some of them are obvious, like coming up with quality content and marketing yourself well on social media, and yet they can be forgotten by a lot of bloggers.
