If we were having coffee today, I would share with you my review of a fabulous new book from one of my favorite bloggers!

To me there is nothing like enjoying a few moments with a hot beverage while reading a good book.

Let me introduce you to Hugh Roberts, blogger at Hugh’s Views and News.

Roberts says that he chose the title Glimpses because “that is what you are about to get—glimpses into the everyday lives of people who are about to be led up a path they were not expecting.”

Not only is he a brand-new author, fellow bloggers tell me he is possibly the nicest gentleman you will ever meet in person or in the blogosphere!

You can view his book on Amazon.

5 starsHere is my 5-star Amazon review:

Glimpses is a delightfully twisted set of short stories inspired by author Roberts’ blog. If you follow his blog, you may recognize a few of his terrifying tales reminiscent of stories in the sci-fi genre of Twilight Zone or Outer Limits peppered with a dash of horror. “The Truth App” is the piece de resistance in this collection of 28 stories. Roberts’ biting wit and deft tale-telling will have you reading on the edge of your…well, your reading device! A great read that will have you begging Roberts for more!

If we were having coffee today, I would urge you, readers, to support your fellow bloggers’ publishing endeavors. I am proud to know a growing number of bloggers who have self-published works. Not only am I astounded by their writing abilities, but also by their encouragement of my writing as well. Many of these bloggers self-published their first book within the last year!

  1. Thank you so much for the fantastic review for Glimpses, Terri. Not only has it made my day, but it’s made my year. I really appreciate you reading and reviewing the book. Will I be writing a second book of short stories? With a review like that, you bet. 😀

  2. So fantastic to see a review already up for Hugh’s fantastic stories Terri. Great review, and thanks so much for the mention in your suggested list of bloggers/authors. That was special. ❤
    I am anxiously awaiting my own precious, hand signed copy of Glimpses from my dear friend Hugh!!!! Only thing better than a great book is knowing the author too. ❤

    1. Thanks, Debby. I hope your copy arrives with you very soon. I’ve told Santa to get it to you quickly. 🎅 I’m so looking forward to finding out what you think of all of those stories, especially as many have been rewritten. Yesterday’s book fair was amazing. Meeting your readers is just the best thing. ❤️

      1. I’m glad you had a blast Hugh. I heard you shared a table with Judith. What a thrill! :)xo You can be sure you’ll hear from me about your book. It will definitely be one of my Sunday book reviews! ❤

    2. Yes, I was sat next to the wonderful Judith Barlow and watched and learned from her how to interact with your customers and readers. I’ve also signed up to the book fair Judith is organising for the Autumn of 2017.
      I hope we can sit to next each other at a book fair one day, Debby. I’m sure we’d make a great seeing team 😀

  3. I do like to h,all new authors but often the 📚 are in a format that makes it difficult to read. I spend time searching for them than actual reading the book. Also, I have so many to read I never lack for one. There a number of excellent books coming out next year I will be busy reading.

  4. What a great review, Terri! If I didn’t already have the book, I’d be heading over to Amazon to buy it. Here’s the line that snagged me: “. . . terrifying tales reminiscent of stories in the sci-fi genre of Twilight Zone or Outer Limits peppered with a dash of horror.” I never missed an episode of either show.

    Congratulations to Hugh for being on his way into the realm of the published author. And thank you, Terri, for the mention. I’m honored to be among such an elite group of authors (yourself included) 💖

      1. You’re welcome, Terri. Always happy to share the works of other authors. And wow! What a great Christmas present that you’re reading my book. Thank you, dear friend. Hugs and Happy Holidays! 💖

    1. Hi, Tina. Thank you for the lovely comments. I’m so pleased to hear you have a copy of Glimpses. The Twilight Zone is one of the shows that inspired me to write my short stories. Its creator, Rod Serling, is somebody who I admire and look up to. I hope to follow in his footsteps. I’ll certainly give it a go. 😀

      1. You’re welcome, Hugh. And I might add that you’re already trailing Serling ~ one footstep over the line, so to speak 🙂 May you catch up to and surpass the fellow. I’d love to flip on the telly and see The Hughsville Horrors splashed all over the screen. Geez … I just gave myself a chill … 🙂
