"Josiah Stubb" - A Review - "This Book Will Stick With Me Forever!!!"

Thanks Monique!

on 8 March 2017
Josiah,Stubb,Josiah Stubb,Josiah Stubb,over and over,that name echoed in my head ever since I opened a book with the title "JOSIAH STUBB
THE SIEGE OF LOUISBOURG". I didn't read this book ,I absorbed every single page into my soul. There are books that stick with you throughout your life and this is such a book. This book has been on my tbr (to be read) list for ages,so when I finally had the opportunity to delve into it,I was blown away.The story of Josiah Stubb is a complicated,but compelling one,born in the gutter but also born with a need to better himself,no matter the cost. His ability to move forward despite all obstacles is commendable. Most would go through life bitter and vengeful because of the trials he had to endure ,but not dear Josiah,he trudged on,hoping that maybe one day his luck would turn. I came away wishing for happiness to finally find him and hold him in it's embrace forevermore.Rich with historical facts,it gives you insight into what life was like in those days,it also gives you a front row seat to view,up close and personal,what war was really like,no romance here folks,war is hell and it is evident in this tale.
At this point,I must warn readers. Beware,this book is highly addictive. An absolutely splendid read ,put forth by the exceptional author C W Lovatt. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK!!!

"The Adventures of Charlie Smithers - A Review - Edgar Rice Burroughs and Me

I've been compared to a great many authors over the years - CS Forester, Bernard Cornwell, George MacDonald Fraser and even Kurt Vonnegut, just to name a few - but this one's a first.
Thank you Sandra:

If you love anything in the likes of Edgar Rice Burroughs, you will love this book. The action was non stop, the characters were unbelievable. I could not put this book down at all and I even cried a great deal towards the end. I will not give any spoilers, but wow, this book will leave you breathless and marked for life. Never will I forget the content of this book as I know I will forever be changed by it. Great job by C W in writing this masterpiece.

"Josiah Stubb: Interim" - Cover Reveal and Blurb

Work has been proceeding steadily for the release of the next book in the Josiah Stubb Trilogy, expected to be out in a few more weeks. I can now proudly reveal the cover and offer the very talented Poppet my heartfelt thanks for its design and creation. Thanks also go out to Wild Wolf Publishing for agreeing to take this project on in the first place.

I also thought that, while I'm at it, I might just as well include what's been hammered out for a blurb, so far. This part isn't written in stone, but it should give you a good idea what the book is about.

 
September, 1758, the French fortress of Louisbourg lies beaten into the mud on the Cape Breton shore. To consolidate their victory, the British are left with what appears to be the easy task of clearing the enemy’s settlements from The Gulf of Saint Lawrence. However, although she may be gravely wounded, New France still has teeth, personified by a ruthless officer who will stop at nothing to prevent the hated anglais from advancing another step.
To oppose him is the young, but untried, lieutenant, Josiah Stubb, born in the gutter and raised into the hostile environs of the officers’ mess by none other than General Wolfe himself. Deep in the Gaspé Peninsula, pitted against an enemy who is expert at fighting in its dense forests, Josiah is riven with doubts about his own abilities, with the lives of himself, and the men he commands, hanging in the balance.

Thank you Jerry!

The continuing adventures of Charlie Smothers is very enjoyable and is well-written. It gives the reader some insight to the aboriginal people of Australia and their concepts of their world.

"Charlie Smithers: Adventures Downunder" - A Review - "Gripping and Totally Fabulous!"

Thank you Jocelyne!

on November 13, 2016
C.W. Lovatt's "Charlie Smithers - Adventures Down Under" is a gripping and totally fabulous tale where characters make you discover the Australian outback in all it's glory. It reminded me of Jules Verne's incomparable writing with a touch of humor and just enough details to unveil the panorama of this harsh but yet tantalizing country. Absolutely recommending it - Well done Chuck !Charlie Smithers: Adventures Downunder
