Colony East: review and author interview at Underground Book Reviews

“I read Night of the Purple Moon and liked it. It was a geared more to children than I would have liked, but it was an excellently written book. Colony East is even better, dealing with some very hard issues and showing the harshness of a world gone to rot. Cramer is an excellent story teller and the prose is clean, imaginative and precise. Dialog is believable and realistic. Settings are expertly woven. This book can go page for page with those produced by Big 5 publishers, which would account for why it sits in the top twenty for its Amazon category” More

“Digesting the Words” reviews Colony East

Colony East picks up where Night of the Purple Moon left off to my utter joy. The climax of Night of the Purple Moon was full of so much suspense, that I really appreciate the inclusion of Abbey and Jordan’s return home in the novel. I was slightly disappointed that there were time skips in the book, but truly the situation never changes. No matter how much time passed by, our protagonists were still constantly in danger and constantly fighting for survival. The kids work hard with the resources they have, but there are no breaks in dystopia land and so we witness new obstacles being thrown at Abbey and Jordan.

Workaday Reads on Night of the Purple Moon

The science of the story was explained quite simply, and in a believable matter. I really appreciate that it wasn’t dumbed down for younger readers. In fact, none of the story had any of the lacking that is present in many MG/young YA stories. The characters were well developed with unique personalities, and the plot had no major holes.

Why I love beta readers – guest post at Mythical Books

Have you ever been a beta reader? Or, if you are a writer, have you tried to find beta readers to share your work with and receive feedback? As a writer, I think that beta readers are one of the most important parts of the publishing process. As a reader, you are providing an invaluable service.

Hezzi-D’s Books & Cooks reviews Colony East

This is an awesome second book in the series.  It picks up where the first book left off and we get a good look at what has happened in the world.  We see how the children are creating their own societies and how the adults are grooming the next generation.  There’s also something weird going on with the adults but no one seems too concerned until the end.

Mom with a Kindle – Author Interview

Do you like the spotlight or lurking in the shadows?

I am an observer. If I am at a party, I tend to stay on the sidelines, observing and listening. We picked up our daughter at the airport the other day. Airports are great for people watching. Coffee shops are a close second. I do like to meet and talk with people, but in small groups or one on one.
