Yet Another Review For Rest in Piece!

Adrienne from The Shameful Narcissist Speaks was kind enough to write a review for my novel, Rest in Piece. Here is her review, which can be found on her blog and on Goodreads.

Rating: 3/5

This is a story published independently by fellow writer B. W. Ginsburg who has a blog dedicated to it here.

My initial take on Rest in Piece was as a motif similar to the one in The Lake House (a film I haven’t seen, but I know enough to recall that spin) where two characters are living yet communicating decades apart. Ms. Ginsburg’s novel is a bit more sinister than that as Catherine Adams is trapped in a type of purgatory by a mysterious puzzle. This is more of a Jumanji vibe, if Jumanji dealt with demon possession.

What the book gets right is the urgency of Louise’s quest and fascinating eeriness of the puzzle. It’s also a swift, easy read, which is not only perfect for the mid-grade group it’s directed towards but anyone who wants to delve into a rousing paranormal tale. Mid-graders will appreciate and identify with many of the hurdles Louise faces in her effort so save the trapped Catherine, and the young girl’s fears for her parents’ reactions are logically sound. She even points this out to her father near the end, and George has to agree.

There is an over abundance of telling and exposition in this novel, which unfortunately takes a great deal of the surprise factor away. There are many shocking scenes at the end, which would have had a much greater impact with more concisely edited lines. The characters are also not overly distinctive, so I had to mentally juggle and remember who was who especially during the climax scene where numerous people were involved. George Erikson, Louise’s father, is one exception due to his often explosive temper (not violent though, thank goodness).

Despite any foibles, I’d still recommend this novel, as it was a quick, intriguing read, was quite a bit different from the norm, and I love the fantastic pun/double entendre of the title” – Adrienne, The Shameful Narcissist Speaks

Rest in Piece: Don’t Forget To Pick Up Your Copy Today!

Hey everyone! For those of you who don’t already know, I published my first book ever, Rest in Piece, in October 2016. I then published the paperback of Rest in Piece in December 2016. I have had several readers already enjoy my book and I would love to continue to spread my work with others. Please consider purchasing my book on Amazon!

Description of Rest in Piece from one of its readers:

“The Erikson family love their new house.  Louise especially loves her new room.  She has privacy, space to call her own, & the hauntingly beautiful puzzle Mr. & Mrs. Adams gave to her when they moved out hanging on her wall.

Then, Catherine Adams – who grew up in what’s now Louise’s room – makes contact with someone 20 years after she mysteriously disappeared.  But, it’s not her parents to whom she reaches out – it’s 12-year-old Louise she begs for help.

Shouldering the burden alone, Louise finds herself in a bizarre world full of the sublime & the grotesque.  A world where one wrong choice could mean the difference between life & death.

Along the way, she finds out what it means to be a young adult.  She also discovers the true support & meaning of friendship, & that, sometimes, you have to lean on loved ones to disentangle life’s riddles.” – Ariel, Writing Radiation

About the book:

Louise, though young, has never been one to believe in the supernatural, fantastical, or surreal. However, when she sees something unusual in a puzzle left by the previous residents of her new home, she begins to wonder if there really is something to the stories that only some have read about in books.

Louise soon realizes that she needs to save Catherine Adams, a girl who disappeared twenty years ago. With the help of angels and loved ones, Louise will be able to do something that she would have never imagined possible.

Questions You May Have About Rest in Piece: Answered!

Your questions, answered!

B.W. Ginsburg

Hey everyone! I know some of you may have some questions about my new book that’s out, so I thought I would answer some possible questions!

Will only young adults enjoy the book?

I honestly don’t think so. I think that anyone who enjoys a fast-paced book with a lot of supernatural and fantastical elements will appreciate Rest in Piece. While the main characters are young, I think that adults can relate to many of the themes.

How did I come up with the idea for Rest in Piece?

My grandparents had a puzzle (my grandpa used to love putting together puzzles) next to the bed upstairs that always used to creep me out, the puzzle is based off of that one. As for the plot, I just always liked the idea of things going into different worlds than their own (for example: the plot of Ink Heart and…

When twelve year old Louise Erickson finds out that she holds the key to saving a nine year old who disappeared twenty years earlier, she decides to accept the challenge. Will Louise be able to rescue the girl and the others locked away with her before it’s too late?

Rest in Piece is the debut novel by one of our fellow WordPress bloggers, B.W. Ginsburg, which made me even more excited to read and review it. After finishing, I’d say this is written for tweens. While I didn’t find it a perfect read, it was still fun and enjoyable. The action begins on the very first page and keeps the story moving forward at a pretty fast pace right up until its exciting ending. The storyline is highly imaginative and…

Rest in Piece: Description From A Reader

B.W. Ginsburg

After checking out the results from the poll that I posted a few days ago, I’ve decided to give a better and longer description of what my book, Rest in Piece, is all about! For those of you who said a lower price would increase book sales, I’m taking your thoughts into consideration. However, with how the pricing works, I can’t promise a lower price.

So without further ado, here’s a more detailed description of Rest in Piece from one of the book’s readers, Ariel from Writing Radiation! Special thanks goes to Ariel for writing this description!
