Book Review: Deadbeat Moms by Naomi Brunner

Deadbeat Moms by Naomi Brunner is an excellent informational novel about child abuse and neglect. Her novel comes complete with individual stories that are shattering to read about. They make you want to stand up and act out against all the abuse and neglect! I found this novel inspirational. A very motivating collection of stories that will move you. It is sad that these things happen worldwide and to many still. The book also gives a handbook guide as to how to spot child abuse and neglect. I found this to be very helpful. Deadbeat Moms is a non-fiction book that I would recommend to all readers. Everyone needs to reads this novel and to stand up against abuse and neglect! All readers will find this collection very heart wrenching, true, and very real. These are issues that need to be dealt with and this book is a great way to spread the information globally. I rate the novel a 5 out of 5 stars.

HI

Today, is the first time in two weeks that I actually feel more like my normal self. I have been struggling with a fever back in August around my birthday, after  awhile I got well. Then a member in my family got sick and passed the cold on to me. Now, I have been sick for two weeks and again my fever came. My fever has dropped slightly and I hope that when I get home and take my temp that it will be down some more or gone completely. I have been drinking cartons worth of orange juice, taking medicine for congestion, and allergy tablet and an aspirin to help my fever go away.

I am sorry for the lack of posts and reviews lately. But, I have been unlucky so far this year with getting sick. I should be up and normal soon.  I have had absolutely no energy at all to even to my online school work lately. But now, I am starting to feel better and and hopefully on the road to a full recovery.

The good news is that I have many book reviews to share with you all, later on tonight! I also wanted to share the news that so far, in my online course called, Creating Story Ideas, I have 80 students enrolled in it! I was astonished and happy to see that many taking my course. I hope all you that are taking it, find it to be very useful for you and your writing careers.  I will be adding more content to that course as well as adding more courses in a variety of similar topics. My dream is to help promote, share, and educate others in the the creative writing field. I love reading and writing and cannot imagine a world without books.

Thank you all for your patience and continued loyal support for me! No words, could paint a paint a picture of how much I appreciate all the support from you all! Thank you!

 

 

Sincerely,

Danielle Urban

Writing Prompt!

“I don’t do relationships.”

“Me either.”

A waste, he immediately thought. This woman deserved to have a man take care of her. He wanted to take care of her.

 

Write a continuation of what happens next. And be sure to mention who the woman is and why she doesn’t do relationships. And who is this man? What made him realize she deserves a man to take care of her? How does he convince her that he is that man? What happens that might lead her to lose her belief or trust of this man that she soon starts to feel for?

Book Review: What A Bride Wants by Kelly Hunter

 

What A Bride Wants is a stunning hot romance like no other! Once you pick up this novel, you won’t want to put it down! I enjoyed reading this novel by Kelly Hunter. The female character was strong, straight forward, and sassy. Especially when Ella’s love interest Cameron walked into her life. For him it was just one look into her eyes and her bright personality that melted his heart. All it took was on look at Cameron and his broad shoulders and his cute dimples to melt her insides away. Cameron is wealthy like Ella and her father but his life comes with baggage. His older brother Richard is a rapist, a stalker, and a thief. Richard has ruined Camreon’s parents family brewery and is now a wanted man. Richard went after one woman that Cameron fell in love with. Will he go after Ella too? Will Cameron be able to save Ella and stop his brother? And what happens with his parents’ business? I highly recommend all readers to read on and find out what happens! I rate this novel a 5 out of 5 stars!

Kingdoms and Empires : Species / Feros

Originally posted on KingdomsandEmpires:

I know I said that I’d discuss the various Federation Legions but that’s a bigger project then I originally thought. So I’ll continue with one of the Federation’s main rivals, The Feros Hegemony. This will be a very brief overview of them.

Okay to begin the Feros were one of the first two races to ever exist. They were given a World called Tera. Like their Angel cousins, the Feros bred several new races including the Humans. But unlike the Angels, the Feros wanted them and helped them grow and evolve. Great interstellar empires rose up and technology advanced species dominated. The Feros allowed conflict between the various races to help them advance. The Feros by nature look frightening, but they are in fact a loving, and compassionate people.

Miedo “Afraid ” is a British drama novel that readers will love! A historical setting with paranormal twists added in makes for a very enjoyable read.

Are these happenings real or not? One way to find out is to pick up Kevin Copper’s highly suspenseful novel and read on to find out! Enter Miedo’s world and see if you can understand all that happens and why. Beware, once you enter there is no return! Readers like myself will fall deeply into this dynamically interesting plot and never want to place the book down! Amazing how Kevin Cooper’s story can have such dramatic effects on us readers. The character Miedo has become the best character I have read about! I definitely would recommend to everyone to read this intoxicating book! I rate it a 5 out of 5 stars!

Book Review: The Second Coming: A Love Story by Scott Pinsker

The Second Coming: A Love Story by Scott Pinsker is an amazing tale that readers won’t be able to put down! This story was about two men. Both claimed that he was the Christ and said the other man was the Devil. But which one is really the Christ and which one is the Devil? Even today, this question is not easily answered.  Scott Pinsker has a talent for storytelling and for writing a unique plot that will capture every reader’s attention.  I enjoyed the suspense of trying to figure out for myself who was really who. The novel tells how the United States becomes split over this issue. There are the Red America worshiping one of the men and the Blue America worshiping the other. Both sides go to war fighting over to win for their “savior”.  I highly recommend reading this brilliant yet magnificent novel by Scott Pinsker. The Second Coming: A Love Story is the one book you won’t want to miss reading!  I rate this book a 5 out of 5 stars!

Kingdoms and Empires: Character – E’via (Raeina)

AMAZING AS USUAL :-)

Originally posted on KingdomsandEmpires:

Hello and welcome back. This post we will go over the Terran named E’via Eraketan, or as she was known in Rise of the Federation as Senator Raeina of the Lasran. If you are familiar with the post with Praetor D’var you will know that E’via is D’var’s twin sister. So you know that E’via is a Terran, and like her brother she too was genetically engineered to be a super Terran. But unlike D’var, E’via’s life went down a different path.

Before I go into her back story, lets go over her appearance and other biology figures. Well E’via stands 5’10” and weighs in at about 155 lbs. She was at first slender, then she got a hold of Laxur’s DNA and used it to modify herself and ended up with a body similar to Laxur’s shape. She has thin shoulder length platinum blonde hair.

Taken

All it took was just one look, and I immediately knew he was mine.

The heat within his amber eyes reflected back the same heat and desire. 

Before I knew it, he captured my lips with his. Gently kissing them softly and creating tiny little moans from deep inside me. 

Who knew kissing would have such an affect on a gal. Until Kevin, I didn’t know what real desire was. 

I took the liberty of speeding up our moment. I wanted much..much more! 

“Sadie…” He softly moaned my name by me ear.  

Feeling him harden beneath me only speed up my pulse. I could hear my heart beat drumming in my ears. 

I slid my body over his, and slip directly into place. 

For several moments we stilled, staying that that position. Almost as though we were savoring this special moment. I felt  a rush of electricity flow through me. I wanted to purr like a kitten.  When I started to move, it was driving Kevin insane. I knew he was trying to hold out waiting for me to reach it with him. But I kept  at my pace, wanting to watch and feel him shatter beneath my body. 

It didn’t take long. Just a few strokes back and forth before..

“Sadie!” 

“Aw, fuck!”

Kevin was then grasping my thighs forcing me to move even faster. I loved every moment of making the man I love come undone. I soon was on the tip of my own cliff. Falling.. into a complete overall bliss.  Before rolling over, I remember being kissed gently and the soft whisper of ..

“I love you, Sadie.”

 

It must have been morning, I could hear the the vaccum going on in the next room. Turning over I wanted to see if Kevin was awake or still asleep.  The spot next to me on the bed was empty. Only a slight dent giving away any clues that Kevin was there. I decide to get up and see if he was in the shower. Passing the small table, I peek into the bathroom. Nothing. No sign of Kevin. Where was he? Why did he leave with not telling me? I walked back to the night stand by our bed. No notes, no messages. Nothing.  It would appear that I just dreamed up last night. But I know deep down that it was real. That and the one tiny spot of blood upon the bed sheets spoke of our act from last night. Kevin did take me. And now I was his. His woman forever.  Our kind didn’t causally have sex. It was for life. We mate for life, unless one of us dies. So, the question was… Where is Kevin? And why disappear without telling me? Something in my gut was saying it wasn’t because he wanted to, but because he had no choice to.

Historical Fiction

My name is Rose and this is my story. 

 

1830:  Talk of Railroads

Chapter 1

 

 

Today,I was outside standing out on the balcony of our small front porch. My father and two other men were discussing the rumors of railroads. A transportation that can get you anywhere you wanted to go. I was fascinated by their discussions. My father didn’t mind me listening in as long as I remembered to obey my mother. It wouldn’t be too long before she called me back in the house to do “lady” stuff. As a ten year-old girl growing up during this time era I was easily distracted.  

“Rose?”

“Rose Abigail Weston!” 

There was my mother calling me. Only she came out and grabbed my hand to lead me away from my father and the other two men. 

“Yes,  Momma. I was coming.”

“Don’t start lying to me Rose. We both know you would rather listen about railroads than sew needle point and do embroidery.” 

Momma was always right. She knew me better than anyone else did. Once Momma had me back in the house, I was stuck doing boring work. But as Momma would constantly tell me, I am a young lady that will marry a man someday. And that I would need to know how to work and act like a lady. Today, I was making a quilt. It was too hot to do patch work. But the sooner I did it, the sooner I can excuse myself. That’s what my Papa told my Momma. If I did as I was suppose to then I can be awarded to do what I wanted as long as it was proper for a lady. 

Besides Momma had enough to keep her busy. My two older sisters Mary and Kayla are at the age where they are marriageable. Momma has been helping them prepare their trunks and getting them ready for their first season. I do not have to worry about all that for another six years. Walking back outside, I search for my best friend, Micheal. Micheal is a year older than me. But he doesn’t care. He says I am the only girl he enjoys being around that doesn’t giggle, when he talks to me. The girls don’t giggle at him in a way to hurt him. The girls my age have a crush on Micheal. It’s funny to watch him being surrounded by them all. He hates all the attention. 

“Pss…”

Turning around, I see Micheal hiding behind the great oak tree.

“So, how was sewing lessons?”, Micheal asked me. He knows I think of the work as boring. I rather talk about trains and other cool things. 

“How many girls asked you for their hand?”, I replied back. Micheal gave me a stare that said you know the answer to that one.

Laughing, I swat his arm and ask him a million questions about trains and how they work. Micheal is kind enough to answer all my questions and he listens to me. Unlike my family does. They are all so busy doing this or that. There is always some kind of work that needed to be done.

“Trains are going to be coming here soon. But it takes a lot of man power and a lot of cash.”, Micheal informed me.

“You really think they will come here?”, I asked hooked on his every word.

“Yes, I do.”, Micheal answered me back.  Smiling like he was does makes me want to smile back just as big. I didn’t know smiles were contagious, but with Micheal they were. He and I would sit there under the tree and watch as people went by.

Testing the Reader in You!

Read the short passage then answer the questions.

-Narrative The following passage is adapted from a short story written in the 19th century.

Monsieur Chantal stopped. He was sitting on the edge of the billiard table, his feet hanging, and was playing with a ball with his left hand, while with his right he crumpled a rag which served to rub the chalk marks from the slate. A little (5) red in the face, his voice thick, he was talking away to himself now, lost in his memories. After a slight pause he continued: “By Jove! She was pretty at eighteen–and graceful– and perfect. Ah! She was so sweet–and good and true–and (10) charming! She had such eyes- blue-transparent–clear–such eyes as I have never seen since!” I asked: “Why did she never marry?” He answered, not to me, but to the word “marry” which had caught his ear, “Why? why? She never would–she never (15) would! She had a dowry of thirty thousand francs, and she received several offers–but she never would! She seemed sad at that time. That was when I married my cousin, little Charlotte, my wife, to whom I had been engaged for six years.”

(20) I looked at M. Chantal, and it seemed to me that I was looking into his very soul, and I was suddenly witnessing one of those humble and cruel tragedies of honest, straightforward, blameless hearts, one of those secret tragedies known to no one, not even the silent and resigned (25) victims. A rash curiosity suddenly impelled me to exclaim: “You should have married her, Monsieur Chantal!” He startled, looked at me, and said, “I? Marry whom?” “Mademoiselle Pearl.” (30)” Why?” “Because you loved her more than your cousin.” He stared at me with strange, round, bewildered eyes and stammered, “I loved her–I? How? Who told you that?” “Why, anyone can see that–and it’s even on account of her (35) that you delayed for so long your marriage to your cousin who had been waiting for you for six years.” He dropped the ball which he was holding in his left hand, and, seizing the chalk rag in both hands, he buried his face in it and began to sob. He was weeping with his eyes, nose and (40) mouth in a heartbreaking yet ridiculous manner, like a sponge which one squeezes. I felt bewildered, ashamed; I wanted to run away, and I no longer knew what to say, do, or attempt.

Suddenly Madame Chantal’s voice sounded on the stairs. (45)“Haven’t you men almost finished smoking your cigars?” I opened the door and cried: “Yes, madame, we are coming right down.” Then I rushed to her husband, and, seizing him by the shoulders, I cried: “Monsieur Chantal, my friend Chantal, (50) listen to me; your wife is calling; pull yourself together, we must go downstairs.” I caught him by the hands and dragged him into his bedroom, muttering: “I beg your pardon, I beg your pardon, Monsieur Chantal, for having caused you such sorrow–but–( 55) I did not know–you–you understand.” He squeezed my hand, saying: “Yes–yes–there are difficult moments.” Then he plunged his face into a bowl of water. When he emerged from it he did not yet seem to me to be presentable; (60) but I thought of a little stratagem. As he was growing worried, looking at himself in the mirror, I said to him, “All you have to do is to say that a little dust flew into your eye and you can cry before everybody to your heart’s content.” I went over to Mademoiselle Pearl and watched her, (65) tormented by an ardent curiosity, which was turning to positive suffering. She must indeed have been pretty, with her gentle, calm eyes, so large that it looked as though she never closed them like other mortals. Her gown was a little ridiculous, a real old maid’s gown, which was unbecoming (70) without appearing clumsy.

My Sadness

Writing is my way,
The only thing that brings me joy every day,
And now it’s slowly being taken away,
What’s sad it that I have no say,
My dreams are like that of clay,
Only I can create the way,
Oh, but it’s washed out like the color gray,
Hovering upon me like a stray….

Literature Prompt

In the story of “Gilgamesh,” the characters of Gilgamesh and Enkidu share a relationship that is often seen in buddy flicks.  Can you think of any buddy movies in which two seemingly different people become friends and participate in all kinds of action?  Or can you think of seemingly different characters in a movie who end up working together?  For instance, I am thinking of Maverick and Ice Man in Top Gun or Edward Cullen and Jacob in the Twilight saga.  Explain why it was important for Gilgamesh to have a counterpart.  Your response should be a minimum of 150 words, be grammatically correct, and written in 3rd person.

Book Review: Carlita’s Way: Out of the Dark into the Light (Vol #1) by Carlita Hodges

Carlita’s Way: Out of the Dark into the Light is a story of a woman life as a wife of famous man. A man who spiraled downward fast. He didn’t care about his wife or his family. The book told of how this woman survived through it all. The cheating and abuse from her husband. This novel sparked my interest from the start. It captured my whole undivided attention as I read on. How our lives can be perfect in one moment and then completely turn upside down and inside out is what the story tells us readers. It shows us how the ugly sides of life that many go through that most never see or ever hear about until it happens to them. And this one women went through it all and survived the worst of the worst. This is one story that readers should pick up and read. Not all stories are meant to be super happy with perfect fairy tale endings. This one is a realistic and stunning novel of a real women’s life and experiences as they occurred. Carlita Hodges’s novel depicts real situations and real side of life. Her words send lessons to readers. These lessons make us readers more aware of what and how reality can be. I highly recommend this novel to readers all over. I rate this book a 5 out of 5 stars.
