  1. I love your site. Keep it up !


  2. I have written a futuristic comedy, Chocolate Chocolate Moons. May I send it to you for a review. I have received a few reviews Some pasted below. Thank you for your time and work.
    JAckie Kingon
    Molly Marbles, an overweight 24th-century Earth girl, wrote “The Joy of Salami,” an essay that won her a spot at a university on the moon. Later, after marriage and twin girls, Molly lives on Mars. After starting a new job as a security guard at the Culinary Institute, she investigates a mystery: People are ending up poisoned after eating her favorite snack food, Chocolate Moons. Kingon invents a colorful, often outrageous cast: Molly’s first love, Drew, who has an affair with CC, otherwise known as Colorful Copies; Cortland Summers, Molly’s husband and an aspiring rock legend; and Rocket, a sleazy fellow looking to make lots of money by any means necessary; and other memorable characters. The author builds a weird, hilarious universe full of witty language and unique detail. In the future, for example, Hallmark-card artwork is expensive and coveted, Uranus is home to toy factories and Mars has cities named New Chicago and Pharaoh City.
    Kingon’s prose is often as snappy as her settings; when Molly discovers Drew’s affair she proclaims, “Suddenly I feel like a pizza cut into more than eight slices. ” The story does wrap up with a satisfying conclusion. Delightful.

    Every taste of sweetness might have a bit of poison behind it. “Chocolate Chocolate Moons” is a novel following larger Molly Marbles as she’s presented with an opportunity to break from her cycle of dieting with a trip to the moon where her weight is suddenly much less of concern, and when her favorite snack food turns out to have a hidden twist, Molly has more on her plate than even she can handle. “Chocolate Chocolate Moons” is a humorous romp, sure to please many a reader.
