“The Button” Blog Tour for: 9-19

I have to thank fellow RaveReviewsBookClub member Mark Bierman for sharing his blog with me! Please check out today’s “The Button” post over on Mark’s blog.  Before you go, please read Mark’s Author Bio and Amazon link below. His debut book “Vanished” earned five starts from me.  Mark is supportive of other authors, so let’s support him.


Mark Bierman:

Born and raised on a farm near Brockville, Ontario, Mark Bierman’s childhood consisted of chores, riding horses, snowmobile races across open fields, fishing trips to a local lake, and many other outdoor adventures. He was also an avid reader of both fiction and non.

Transitioning towards adulthood also meant moving from the farm and into large urban areas that introduced this “country boy” to life in the big cities.

After a short stint as a private investigator, he moved into the role of Correctional Officer, working at both Millhaven Institution and Kingston Penitentiary, until it closed.

    1. Thanks Maretha cant wait to hear what you think…its a bit more adult than the rest:) Yes thanks Mark!

      1. You’re putting so much faith in my thoughts that I feel very honoured and at the same time scared to have such responsibility to review your book, D.L.! I hope I get it right. There are reviewers out there who can cut us down without much thought as to what their thoughtless words do to knock the wind out of one’s sails. A UK reviewer said that she “absolutely hated” my illustrations in book 4 and that photographs or a professional illustrator needed to be employed. It knocked me for a six – so I try to be fair and never hurtful when doing a review. Fortunately, I know and love your work already. 🤗

  1. Thank you Maretha:) I’ve read your reviews and think you do a very good job at reviewing. It is a hard thing to do. I do not like to be mean and have had it directed at me before, too. Some can be quite personal on things that are only an opinion. I feel if I can get something out of it to improve I am thankful, otherwise I try to let it go…hard to do though isn’t it? Was this person an illustrator and maybe looking for some work? Never know. I’ve always enjoyed your books and illustrations and more importantly my grand-kids really love it! Which is why we do it! This book has more swear words than I used to using…so I’m nervous about that, but thought I had to be real with it this time.
