This isn’t the first time reviewing a C. Billie Brunson’s book, in fact, the very first book review on Scribble’s Worth was of “Heart of Malice“. Since Heart of Malice was launched in 2015, we can definitely say that Mrs. Brunson has done her homework with diligence, because “Six Strings” is a total PUNCHER. I must admit that I rarely get spooked, specially through a … Continue reading Six Strings By C. Billie Brunson (The review)
It IS true that one should never judge a book by its cover, and as a writer and reader, I follow this advice, BUUUUUUUUUTTTTT, I can and WILL judge this cover. IT IS GLORIOUS! I have never seen, as far as I can recall, a cover THIS beautiful, I mean, LOOK at it! It’s magical, a masterpiece on its own and for the first time … Continue reading Last Of The Gifted – Spirit Sight by Marie Powell (A Review)
First things first, the cover is something to look at, twice. Simple, yet full of texture and vibrancy it comes off as something thought-out and identifies the book. The second thing that I loved was the title: “For Poetry’s Sake“, both for the implication and the pun (I assume). Once you open the book there is a small, yet, very cute dedication to us, the … Continue reading “For Poetry’s Sake” By B. T. Harris
The Names That Survived is a short-story that is… light and deep. A story about identities, names and the acceptance of one’s culture and roots are showcased with their problems and implications that strikes home to the Black community and general immigrants that go to America in hopes to become and be accepted as “white”, while suffering repression and death. It’s about self-discovery and going … Continue reading The Names That Survived By Mackenzie Littledale
“DEUCALION SELDOM SLEPT, but when he did, he dreamed. Every dream was a nightmare.” 14 words in, and you are already demanding answers to the questions: – Who is Decaulion? // What does “Decaulion” mean ? // Why such a name? // What kind of insomnia gets you to “seldom” sleep? And when he does, why is it always a nightmare? // How does he … Continue reading “The Prodigal Son”, the perfect beginning of an epic book series
I know, I know, it’s kind of late to post this, but…. I have no excuses so here we GO! In our first year, more like 8 months actually, we reviewed many awesome writers and their books, such as J-Man, C. Billie Brunson, Steven McKinnon and Matthew Johnson. Although all of the above are great authors, there is only one spot for the Scribble’s Worth … Continue reading Book of The Year Award 2019 Edition
Shadow Folk and Soul Songs is nothing more, nothing less than a rhymed revolution. A call of pride. A shout to remember the value and the strength of all Negroes, the African-American culture and a screeching appeal to the understanding of a nation as a whole. This short, very well woven work is powerful and deeply honest. As a reader, you feel the emotions that … Continue reading Shadow Folk and Soul Songs (The review)
Have you ever read a book that you wished it never ended? Yes? Then this is another one. Yes, this is a self-help book, but contrary to many out there this one is as original, as straightforward as it gets, and, funny enough, you are connected to Leil’s words from sentence one, which proves the efficacy of the whole book. “How to instantly connect with … Continue reading “How to instantly connect with anyone” By Leil Lowndes – (A review)
Imagine a very young and talented writer that waves fabulous stories with the down-right potential of becoming classic best-selling titles, but struggles with his career (and life) so much that he becomes depressed because the only thing he encounters is failure, eventually quits and the world never hears about his name, or his stories, only because he failed to acquire one simple skill. Is it … Continue reading The single most import skill in writing.

The … Continue reading Errors, a collection of short stories By J-man.
