Top Ten Tuesdays #5: Author Duos That Shouldn’t Happen

Top Ten Tuesdays #5: Author Duos That Shouldn’t Happen

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly blog hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. I’m not a huge fan of collaborations between popular authors. Truth be told, I feel it’s cheating if more than one person is writing a book. Then again, the only collaborations I see now-a-days are with James Patterson and it’s well […]

Rick. Ezekiel. Gregory. Negan. Each man holds the fate of their community in their hands… and WAR is on the horizon! Let me just say, I think this volume should have been titled “Rick Half-cocked.” I say this because Rick does something so stupid, he not only nearly gets himself killed, but he gives away […]
