Boy, getting reviews is like pulling teeth.  OUCH!

Though, I have to admit I never thought of leaving a book review until after I became a published author.  And I never read indie books before either.  Now, that’s all I read. 

Both of my Excalibur books have been sitting on 79 and 7 reviews for the longest of times.  I keep checking every day, hopeful some reader would feel moved enough to leave a review of what they thought.  Then lo and behold, one new review for each book on the same day.  YEAH!!

So, here are my two new reviews, both 4 stars.  And the first book now has 80 reviews.  Amazing!



4.0 out of 5 stars A well-written and excellent tale

Excalibur, the mythical sword of King Arthur.

Arthur Merlin has great powers, but he keeps them hidden. When people find out about them, they fear him.He keeps moving around the world, but when he comes to the UK,he meets with Ruth, who does not seem to fear him.

Ruth and he travel to a lake in the South of England and there Arthur feels he is being called to by something in the lake.

Arthurian legend and modern life come together in this original tale by Sahara Foley. They find Excalibur, but discover the truth about the sword is much stranger and more dangerous than anyone could imagine.


4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent writing and story-telling.

This book is the second in the Excalibur series and I enjoyed it as much as I did the first one. This time, instead of following Arthur and Daisy on their adventures out in the Universe, we concentrate on Arthur’s daughter, Pamela.

Arthur does not know of the birth of his daughter, nor that she has inherited his gifts.

Pamela feels something of a misfit on Earth as she has to hide her powers from others. If they know what she is capable of, they would fear her. One day she is whisked off to space by mysterious forces that turn out to be intelligences contained in a living spaceship. These two women, granddaughter and grandmother, tell her that her father is in danger and that he and his wife, the alien Daisy, whom he met in The Secret of Excalibur, are imprisoned.

The rescue of Arthur and Daisy involves the releasing of the Shalit from Excalibur, one of the entities known as Planet Eaters.

Pamela has to use her powers and faces great danger. She finds her true love in a most unusal person, and the twist at the end caught me by surprise.

Ms Foley has built complex worlds with strange alien creatures and a politics we can all recognise. Pamela’s change from a timid, self-conscious girl to a confident woman is believable, after what she goes through.

The writing is excellent and I have no hesitation in giving this book 4 stars.

If you’ve already read my books but haven’t left a review yet, please do.  No matter the rating.  Amazon puts a lot of weight on reviews and rankings.  It helps get our books noticed in Amazon’s overflowing catalogue of ebooks. 

Thank you. 

About Sahara Foley

Bio: Until my husband died on Christmas 2012, I never thought about becoming a writer. In fact, the act of writing a story terrified me. Don’t get me wrong, I loved reading, just never had the knack for writing. The thought of writing dialogue scared the bejeebers out of me. See, Bob was the writer. He wrote stories for years but could never get a traditional publisher interested enough to publish even one. Now I understand why, as they were unpolished outlines. Then, after 30 years together, Bob passed away and my life was turned upside down. About a month later, I was sitting around my apartment, trying to adjust to the worst event in my life, when a little voice spoke to me. Why not publish Bob’s stories? To be truthful, ever since the advent of self-publishing, I always wanted too, that’s how much I believed in his stories. But I knew I would have to fight him for every little change I made to his outlines. Sorry, honey, but they had to be done. So, I pulled out the box of stories, dusted them off, and started on a new adventure: The World of Self-Publishing. Boy, did I have a lot to learn. I finally published several short stories early in 2014, then my horror novella, It Lives in the Basement. While I was working on them, I was slowly learning the craft of writing, and getting The Secret of Excalibur ready for publication. Excalibur was my favorite story of them all, and in the back of my mind, I knew I wanted a publisher. One day on Twitter, I ran across a tweet from Creativia Publishing, and that was another game changer for me. I signed up with them in December of 2014, and it was the best decision I’ve made. One thing I’ve discovered on my new adventure, are all the really awesome and talented Indie Authors. If you find the right community of Indie Authors, all they want to do is help each other. I found that I love promoting them and their books, so that’s how I setup my blog. For readers to meet Indie Authors. Anyway, enough about me.
