Reader Reviews

I promise none of these people were held at gunpoint or paid for their lovely comments. I’m humbled that anybody has read my work, and extremely grateful to everyone who leaves a review – even a bad one!

Author Daley James Francis comes out of the gate strong with this debut novel and I will be watching for additional reads as I like his style.

R. Wilson, WALKING UP A SLIDE

In this sometimes cynical, often poignant while funny read, we travel back in time to being in our early 20’s when life is full of promise and hope.  Well, except in this case. Written in first person we get a comical look (and sometimes bittersweet look) at those early adult years. Struggling to make ends … Continue reading Beverly Clark, WALKING UP A SLIDE

This book was greatly master-pieced with the greatest of characters and the details were so vivid and to the tee as if I could close my mind and see what I was reading.... My favorite line in the book was Amy took Fluffy the Penguin for moral support when she went out on an adventure … Continue reading Marie Sharp, THIS BOOK BELONGS TO

A very funny and entertaining read. Really refreshing to have a Rom-com from a young male's perspective. Great stuff!

Language is on the Blue side, but, this is a book for grown ups. If only by age and not in behaviour! Similarly enjoyed this book and am looking forward to future releases. Independent publications like this should start to shake up the somewhat stagnant world of creativity that we currently live in. Keep an … Continue reading James Paul Smith, WALKING UP A SLIDE

James Paul Smith, WALKING UP A SLIDE

A laid back read from the perspective of a wholly believable main male character. Crude and rude in places but never forced, just all part of the natural flow of conversation that makes you feel nostalgic with the brilliant attention to detail. I felt almost sad when it ended (although the ending is SO frustrating!) … Continue reading Callie Barter, WALKING UP A SLIDE

Daley James Francis's debut novel had me giggling like a small child. The story perfectly captures the painfully familiar moment in an adolescents life when your heart is broken for the first time. The story is a good length and it was refreshing to read a 'Rom-Com' from the guy's perspective and what's more interesting … Continue reading Lee Tomes, WALKING UP A SLIDE
