I’m writing to talk to you about the book Rain Gods I’ve just finished in greater detail.
I’m going to make a couple comments on the next book I downloaded and why I will not be reading the NLS version as well.
When you’ve read my review and comments on narration I would like to ask a favor.
I’d like to ask you keep reading to learn about how you can help Campbell and me continue the work we do.
I invite and encourage you to read about our work. If you do you will learn about what we do and why.
We thank you in advance for reading.
First Rain Gods.
This was one of the best books I’ve read by this author yet.
I know. I know. I say it all the time, but honestly this book was super awesome.
Suspense filled to the max. hard core action with just the right amount of grit.
A tad bit of romance tossed in for the mix, but the sex was left to the imagination, and I shan’t talk about my imagination. LOL!
I honestly loved this book and the ending, well it was spot on.
Here’s what NLS has to say. Then more of my thoughts.

Last night as I began to drift off to sleep I thought some more about this book.
I’d like to add some thoughts to my review.
The characters in this book were all those of whom you could really care for.
Even the bad guys had qualities that made them human and understandable.
While I could not justify some of their behaviors, their behaviors were understandable.
Like for example, the character referred to as Preacher, his behaviors were very understandable.
You learn via his thinking back to childhood memories why he feels as he feels and kills as he does.
You can in a way pity him.
The FBI agents, those guys must be hardnosed, and lock their feelings securely away else they’d never get the job done.
You find yourself asking, “Is there no room for human?”
Just when you start to think it is not possible you see just a glimpse of it, but it is only a momentary flash.
The young man and woman, Vicki and Peat.
You can totally see who they are and why they are.
You love them right from the beginning. You want to reach through the player sometimes and shake Peat but his heart’s in the right place, and as the story grows so does he.
He’s seen a lot for his young years, and you find yourself asking again and again, is war really worth all the hell it leaves behind?
Not just because of Peat either but because of Hack himself. Talk about messed up in the head, but then again aren’t we all?
Anyhow I again cannot recommend this book highly enough.
I’ve started another book, but I find the narration is such that I’m going to have to go and get it from audible.
Anyhow, yall have a wonderful day and happy reading.
Here is the NLS info on the book I’ve begun.
I tried reading this version but honestly the narration is just to me quite off putting.
The lady reading needs to learn not to make all her male characters sound like old people with womanly voices.
Just read it ma’am. Don’t try to act it.

Bubba Tails Media Kit
Welcome to my Media Kit King Campbell and I are pleased to present some wondrous stories and art work to you all. Enjoy.
Bubba Tails from the Puppy Nursery at The Seeing Eye Written by Patty L. Fletcher Told by, King Campbell Lee – The Seeing Eye Dog AKA Bubba
In this magical and love filled tail, King Campbell AKA Bubba travels to the puppy nursery at The Seeing Eye to help ready a group of puppies who are just about to embark on the fabulous journey of learning to become Seeing Eye dogs. Just as he is about to finish his tail, a wee pup becomes very frightened of all that lies ahead, and one frightfully stormy night she runs away! Will King Campbell hear the urgent call from the puppy nursery in time? Will they find her and save her so she can fulfill her destiny?
The use of Tail instead of Tale for story and Magik instead of Magic is intended for these short stories. A great play on words from King Campbell
Patty Lyne Fletcher in her own words (October 2017
About me and my crew
I’m a single mother with a beautiful daughter, of whom I am very proud. I have a great son-in-law and five beautiful grandchildren. Three girls, and two boys. I hope to be able to write more about them later on. I own and handle a Black Labrador from The Seeing Eye™ named Campbell Lee—a.k.a. Bubba Lee or King Campbell, to give just a couple of his nicknames.
About my blindness
I was born one and a half months premature. My blindness was caused by my being given too much oxygen in the incubator. I was partially sighted until 1991, at which time I lost my sight due to an infection after cataract surgery and high eye pressure. I used a cane for 31 years before making the change to a guide dog.
Where I live and work
Currently, I live and work in Kingsport, Tenn. I used to work for CONTACT-CONCERN of Northeast Tennessee, Inc. I left that position in order to spend time with family and pursue my writing full time.
Why I write.
I wrote Campbell’s Rambles: How a Seeing Eye Dog Retrieved My Life to tell the story of how going to The Seeing Eye™ and getting Campbell, learning to love, handle, and work him, then coming home and adding him to my life, gave me true freedom. I tell of how changing from being a 31-year cane user to be a guide dog handler taught me things about myself I had never known before. I tell of the wonderment I experienced when I finally took that chance.
A major goal of mine is to help others who find themselves in domestic violence situations. I also want to help others learn more about mental illnesses and how different situations and environments can drastically affect those with such challenges. I tell how training affected me physically as a result of the fibromyalgia I deal with, along with the side effects of the medications I take. I focus on bipolar disorder, on how it can go horribly wrong and cause a person to behave in ways they normally would not.
Another thing I have attempted to show is how, in certain institutional settings, attachments can develop—and how those attachments can become unhealthy for all concerned if they are not handled correctly. Most simply, I want others to know more about me.
In Bubba Tails From the Puppy Nursery At The Seeing Eye, it is King Campbell Super Seeing Eye Dog A.K.A Bubba’s turn to tell his tale.
While helping to ready a group of pups to go and meet their puppy raiser families, so they too, might one-day become Seeing Eye dogs, he tells of what it was like for him, to grow up and become a Seeing Eye dog.
My hobbies include reading, writing, music, and standup comedy. I also like nature walks, light hiking, tent camping, and fishing. No, I am not afraid to bait a hook.
Music I enjoy
My favorite types of music are classic rock, rhythm and blues, and classic country, as well as some present-day country music. I also like meditation music.
My favorite books and authors
I enjoy fantasy, science fiction, and books about the supernatural. I love the books by Stephen King, Dean Koontz, and many more. My favorite books include
Stephen King’s Dark Tower series, J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series, Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time series, and J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings series.
My spiritual faith
I am a spiritual walker. I claim no particular faith, either Christian or pagan. I simply know that there is God and Goddess, or Mother Father God, as some call her/him. I lean toward the natural approach, or Druidism (Druidry), as it promotes harmony and respect for all beings, including the environment. I am also very interested in herbs and their healing properties.
