Jack is in the house

So last night I finished Jack of All Trades by K.C. Shaw. I don't know, you may have heard of her, very nice gal. Anyway, I don't know when I have liked characters that well in a long time. I can say that because most of the books I read have characters that are hard cases. The world she set up was complete and vivid and - charming is the best word to describe it. I really wanted to know what Jack and his dragon, Pepper (love that name) would get into next. If you haven't bought it go to Ancient Tomes Press and purchase a copy (or you can go to Amazon if you are so inclined) and buy a copy.

Something tells me that whatever I read after that is going to be a little bit of a letdown, so I might have to turn to a short story collection I have been eying for awhile.

Again, a fine send up of K.C.'s fine book.

It was well deserved.

Yay, for Kate.

Isn't it awesome to know talented people? It makes me feel all special.

K.C. Shaw said...

Thanks! I'm so glad you liked it.

(I have to be careful and not write "Pepper and Jack" because then people would think pepperjack cheese--and I swear I didn't notice that until after it was written and edited and submitted and accepted. Um, maybe I shouldn't have mentioned it here, huh?)

Cate- Yay, indeed!

Carrie- Around here we are surrounded by awesome.

K.C.- I actually thought of that in the opening of the book, but it was quickly banished to the back of my mind. Nicely done.

It was a great read, wasn't it. And it's always handy to have a good back up book ready.

Danielle- I think I have a large enough TBR pile that I can find something that will get me through the post-Jack and Pepper rush.
