Book Review: Jennifer and Rocket by Anita Claire

Jennifer and Rocket by Anita Claire is another incredible romance novel within the brilliant stunningly series. All of the novels in The Princess of Silicon Valley can be read separately. That’s one of the reasons I love this series so much. Jennifer is tired of metro-sexual men. She wants a real man. When she eyes Rocket with the tats and piercings, she doesn’t think there’s much more to this hot man than meets the eyes. Rocket has spent his entire time, wasting it away with drinking and tons of women. But now he wants to settle down and the middle school teacher, Jennifer, is the one he wants to settle with. He takes her to an art gallery where she finally learns there is indeed more to this sexy man that she first thought. Jennifer’s story isn’t complete without the help of her college friends and her title: Princess. Anita Claire has beautifully written an adult novel that is realistically enchanting. Her characters are real, hot, and have flaws that make them interesting. I loved reading each and everyone of her novels in this exciting series. Every girl in this series has gone through their own situations and there’s always plenty of hot men to satisfy readers’ attention. I would recommend reading Jennifer and Rocket to all. I enjoyed their adventure and journey and I have no doubt others will fall in love with them too. Overall, I rate it a five out of five stars.

Book Review: Broken Pearl by Dawn Brower

Her one love is a soldier on board the USS Arizona. Rebecca doesn’t want to feel things anymore nor does she want to feel things for Joel either. She shuts herself off from her emotions and soon will end up destroying herself, if Joel doesn’t come to her aide in time. Can he help save her before it’s too late?

I highly recommend reading Broken Pear by Dawn Brower. Her novel is enticing and one that will forever lure you deep into a world similar to our very own. Her writing is of out of this world. The scenes come off the pages and the characters pop to life. Readers will be fascinated with this historical tale time and time again.

Something about Veronica makes him want to explore everything there is about her. However there’s his legacy to live up to and he plans to make a few nights with Veronica to always remember.

The Copy by Grant Boshoff is one of most brilliant and well written masterpieces that I have seen in a long time. His debut novel is one that lures curious readers deeper into a plot that takes an impossible event and leads it to be true. Readers will watch as the shocking truth of one man’s clone has significantly changed his whole life. A life he lost after awhile and was struggling to keep in one piece. Until he succeeded at cloning himself.

A journey that takes them deep into a hot debated court room dealing with the death of the same man being accused of murder. The prosecuting attorney dramatically begins questioning witnesses. This is where readers realize what is happening. Geffory Bartell made a clone of himself. Now, he’s is being accused of committing his own murder. At first his life of cloning animals went well but when he brought it out to the public that’s where everything went wrong for him, his family and his company. Pressure built up on him, until he created his clone. His clone made him realize all the he missed out with his family while trying to “keep his business going”. But as with every project, no plan is perfect. That is where Geffory finds his clone, inside of his his den, at his home holding a gun meant for shooting him. His copy.

I highly recommend reading, The Copy. It’s plot is the stunning edge of your seat story. So intensifying that readers will wonder what happens next. Did Geffory Bartell really kill his clone or did his clone kill him? I couldn’t put this legal thriller down, until I finished reading it. Once readers read the first page, they will be saying, “WOW!” A perfect must read that should be added to every reader’s to do list.  Murder, suspense, and a thrilling rush of who did it all in one perfectly designed novel.

You are probably wondering..how can you manage that?

Well, it’s simple.

The two books I am reading, are about writing fiction.

The novels I am reading are completely different genres.

This makes it possible to keep my reading straight.

I am reading, The Copy, by Grant Boshoff.

His novel is incredible! I was wowed on the first page.

Definitely recommend to readers who love strong sexy heroes.

The book I am reading right now, is called Write A Novel and Get It Published by Nigel Watts & Stephen May.

This is a must read for all writers.

No matter what level of experience you carry!

Back to fiction, I am reading a brilliant and most talented writer’s manuscript.

Lucy Mitchell aka Blondedusk has honored me with reading her work.

Her shorts whether fiction or nonfiction are out of this world & hard to stop reading.

Her words are vibrant and realistic.

They encourage readers to continue reading her work.

I think it’s because she puts passion into her writing no matter what the topic is.

Lucy can write anything she is given or brilliantly comes up with next.

She is currently working on her debut novel.

I can’t say anymore…

But, I can say this..you can find the first chapter of her debut novel within July’s Issue.

Definitely have to recommend his novels to all.

So, he has just finished writing his latest novel and I get to read it!!!!

So, what are you currently reading?

Criticism Anyone?

Image result for pictures of a big question mark

Criticism Anyone?

Every where we live with the fact that we may not excel with every piece that we have written and tossed out to the public to critic.

There are no harsher words than when one receives the bad criticism.

It surely takes that dip into our writer’s ego.

Yes, we writers have an ego that swells to the size of our country if not bigger once we finish writing that one particular book or piece.

But once the hard criticism blows through our door, we feel like we are no bigger than the period that ends our sentences.

How do we deal with criticism that makes us feel like unworthy writers?

We take it at it’s value and view it as tho it were a teacher grading our papers.

Our teachers expect the best from us, do they not?

So do our readers.

So, when the bad criticism comes rolling in, let’s embrace it.

It can help us grow as writers.

Yes, our egos are momentarily wounded and our book sales will not be as thrilling as we all want it to be.

But, we can take that criticism and use it to our advantage.

Take a look at any book on Amazon, even my books.

You will see that all of us writers have received bad criticism.

But this bad criticism gives us another chance to improve our work.

I received a 2 out of 5 stars on one of my books.

The reader said it read more like a workbook than a guide in helping writers.

So, what did I do?

I cried…

No, I didn’t but I was indeed wounded.

I took that criticism.

Went back and rewrote my book.

Improved it by a lot.

And I now, like it way more than I did before.

So, next time you see the “bad” criticism, work it to your advantage and use it to improve your work.

Sure you can have a 5 star book or novel, and still have someone give it a poor rating simply just for not liking something .

But, always consider it as a teacher giving you another chance to improve your writing.

To soar above and beyond!

Why Did I Become a Blogger?

Typewriter Stock Photo

Why Did I Choose to Become a Blogger?

I  became a blogger two years ago because, I wanted to share my writing with the world.

Yes. That’s right I wanted readers everywhere to read my work.

At the time the only way I knew how to make that work was to blog.

Blogging became my new hobby.

Of course, I had to juggle around my schedule as a full time student.

Did It Work?

Yes, it did. Not only did I have my friends reading my work but also people from around the world.

It was great!

I didn’t expect to have people read, view, like, or comment on my blog when I first started.

But guess what?

They did!

How did it work?

It all started when my local library held a blogging 101 session.

The presenter was a children’s author.

She taught, demonstrated, and asked us questions that would show us how to become a blogger and why.

I too was an author.

I wrote over 500 poems on my Facebook page. But only my friends could read it.

I also dabbled in fiction.

So, she inspired me.

She should me what it took to start blogging, how to blog, and which type of blogging would suit my particular needs.

I was impressed.

So impressed, I got home and started my blog.

Out of all the blogging sites she gave me during that session, I choose WordPress.

And I started my first post.

I used the appropriate taglines.

The words that would tell others what my posts were about.

I started to type and posted many post afterwards.

At first I was writing as many posts as possible everyday.

That’s how I got started.

Success!

And here I am.

Two years later, a full time blogger with many loyal followers who are artists, publishers, poets, and authors like myself.

I enjoy their blogs and so, I follow them, like comment and share their posts.

By doing that, I encouraged them to come check out my blog.

And soon, I didn’t have to blog every second of every day.

Some days I never blogged at all and my views were better than when I did post.

Book Review: Frankly Twisted by Kevin 11

Picture

 

Frankly Twisted is the 2nd novel in this brilliantly well written series by Kevin 11. His writing is unique and intriguing from the first line to the last. His characters are intelligent and stunning. Three detectives going about solving a case. The novels are centered in Brooklyn. The settings are vivid and readers will find them humorous as well. Crime, fast-paced action, and scenes that will forever send readers deep into the plot’s center.  I have found each novel by Kevin as addictive as the one before it. Readers can also read his novels out of order and still be able to follow the characters and understand what’s happening inside each book. Frankly Twisted is one of the best new literature masterpieces readers will read this summer. I enjoyed reading Tales of the 23rd Precinct and now I have also enjoyed reading this second marvelous mystery piece, Frankly Twisted. A must read for all who enjoy complex crime fighting novels. I would highly recommend this to readers worldwide. Overall, I rate it a five out of five stars and look forward to the next novel by Kevin 11.

Book Review: Moonchild Dreams by Nadia Gerassimenko

moonchilddreamscover

Moonchild Dreams is a collection of Nadia Gerassimenko’s beautifully well written poems. A time when her creative poetic form wanted to free to share with the world. Her entire collection will leave readers breathless. The emotions running through me as I read on, is something that every reader has to experience on their own. To each reader her enchanting poems will captivate them from the beginning and to the very end. One poem in particular, A Flickering Light, caught my unwavering attention. It lead me on a path so dreamy and peaceful but also spoke to me about not being afraid to brave enough to face the world around even when things go astray. I know the poem will speak volumes to many readers. As we all face certain situations, where we have felt afraid to brave it through.

Another poem, Demon Heart, will lure readers deep with its meaning. The truthful way of telling how cruel love can be. Love isn’t easy nor always as beautiful as we dream it to be. In this poem, readers can relate to the man’s heart. How it aches to have the woman’s real love and yet, she does not love him. Not for real. And so he no longer believes in love anymore. This is so realistic of what each one of us face in life.  Another poem by Nadia, Those Words is one that delves deep into our souls and defines what we have to say but cannot find the words to say it.

These are just a few out of the many countless numbers of passionate, dreamy, and daring poetry within the book. I have found each poem to be truthful. As though they were speaking to just my soul. Moonchild Dreams is an inspirational collection that should be read daily and by every reader. The poetry awakens one’s inner being with words that come to life. Vivid images springing forth into one’s mind when reading these poems. Nadia’s talent is raw and energetic. Her passion comes through each of her stunning well written poetry. I would highly recommend this collection to all readers. Definitely worth one’s time to read. Overall, I would rate Moonchild Dreams a five out of five stars.

Book Review: Rules of the Game by Lori Wilde

Rules of the Game by Lori Wilde is another incredible romance that will sweep readers off their feet and into a happily ever after. A jilted bride struggled with anything that involves a wedding. And when she is told to crash a wedding by her doctor, Jodi never expected that it would forever change her life. Trying to enter into a wedding in which she had a ticket but forget due to a stranger distracting her, her decides to cover for her.  Telling the man that she’s with him. Upon entering the wedding, Jake feels a connection instantly to the pretty redhead. She looks similar to his dead wife. Could that be why he feels so strongly attracted to this woman or it is fate leading him to his new destiny? Jodi feels the same way. She’s struggling with not liking the hot sexy stranger name Jake. Everything about him lures her in deeply. But will he be her new doom or her new hope? One night of hot passion and two troubled souls destined for one another.

I highly recommend reading, Rules of the Game by Lori Wilde. This is the second novel I have read by her and it’s just as good as the one before it. I couldn’t put this cute, funny, and intoxicating novel down until I read the entire book in one sitting. The baseball star, Jake is funny and irresistibly charming. A man that every woman could easily fall for and Jodi is the strong independent woman who goes out of her way to help everyone else. But when it comes to herself she doesn’t know how to relax or to let go. That’s where the novel heats up, with Jake showing how to live again. Both characters go through a tough past and with each other are able to move forward, that is if Jodi can put aside her fear. Overall, I rate this story a five out of five stars.

Writer’s Therapy

All writer’s need a break every now and then. Whether it’s just a moment to go for a fresh steaming cup of coffee or just simply to relax. Our writing will always be there. There’s a reason why writers enter into the deep dark waters of writer’s block and feeling overwhelmed. It’s because our creativity needs to be recharged. Read, watch TV, draw or do yoga. Then if you feel relaxed enough go back and begin writing once more. For me brainstorming ideas never shuts off. However extending my fiction pieces into much longer ones is a daunting and most stressful task indeed. I can easily extend them by writing so much, and then coming back later and adding another part to the one I wrote earlier. That helps my creativity to flow and to be able to expand. I just know it’s easier starting and harder to finish. So, take those breaks of relax time when you. If you don’t have a bunch of time, flip through a magazine or book, or thru TV stations. There’s always something there that will trigger another bout or two of creativity to finish that brilliant piece you have started.

Freelancing for Writers Beware!

Freelancing for writers is overwhelming. There are now so many places one can go to find a freelancing gig. But did you know that majority of the sites that posts all these gigs requires money for a chance to maybe be hired. With so many writers attempting to steal the same job you’re after, it’s hard to compete. Plus, for some money is an issue. It’s easy to find the jobs, but then you only have so many site coins to use to appy for the best jobs that you’re capable of doing. Then once you run out of these coins you have to pay monthly to receive so many more coins. This benefits the sites hosting the jobs but where does that leave the freelance writers? Surely, I am not the only one who sees this issue.

Freelancing sites should construct a fairer system that would allow those who don’t have the necessary means to be able to find jobs. It should be up to the employers to find the best suited candidates and not for the hosting sites to only allow those with the necessary means to apply to the jobs that are found.  How would you feel knowing that there are dozens upon dozens of jobs that you are highly qualified for and yet, you can’t apply for a single one because you’re out of the FREE coins given to you and because you don’t have the money to spare to buy more coins on the 50/50 chance of being hired?

What is a freelance writer to do? And where do they go once this becomes an issue for them. Let me tell you, as a freelancer, it’s hard to tell others what your can provide for them. Because most look to hire freelancers from freelancing sites mostly. Most turn away from a freelancer trying to run on his or her own. It’s a tough market. Most would rather pay well-know sites and freelancers than to take the chance on a freelancer who offers the same service at a lower price and is capable of doing the same exact service.

My advice is that if you are looking for a particular service and happen to run across a freelancer on his or her own, then take the time to ask the necessary questions, ask to look over samples of work, and etc. before passing up a great opportunity that may cost you less and be as accurate as those charging more.

Book Review: The Night Ferry by Michael Robotham

The Night Ferry by Michael Robotham is a fascinating thriller unlike any other. Michael Robotham’s story is dynamically enthralling. The scenes take you deep into into its impressive plotline that will attract readers in like a moth to a flame. Vividly powerful story that will leaver readers senseless. A tale that every will want to read.

The Night Ferry tells of one woman who has spent time trying to get her life back together after being a murder suspect. She soon receives a note from a friend who is pregnant and in trouble. Will Detective Alisha Barba help her friend or will the trouble find her first? Alisha agrees to meet with her friend only to witness her friend murdered and a long chain of disturbing events that will forever haunt her. Alisha then decides to embark on a journey of truth only to submerge into a dark and most haunting world of sex trafficking and slavery. Will the truth be discovered before it’s too late? Michael Robotham uses suspense well in engaging his readers inside of troubled world. I couldn’t put the book down. His character, Alisha, is intriguing, and will have readers following her every step as she investigates the lies and dangerous world. I highly recommend this novel to every reader. A real page turner. One that will leave you gripping the edge of your seat. Overall, I rate it a five out of five stars.

Fear Fear Itself

Fear fear itself

and not the impossible,

Fear fear itself.

not the hopes that won’t ever be.

Fear fear itself,

for it makes us quiver

with thoughts of what could be.

Fear fear itself,

because it alone is our only failure.

Fear causes us to act stupid,

to make haste choices,

leaving us behind with only,

the fear of the voices.

The voices of right versus wrong.

Fear fear itself,

for it is the only doom that consumes us all.

Short Story: Madness Part 2 (Written by Me)

“Carrie, we have three new doctors coming to aid us with the injured soldiers!” I nearly shouted with joy. As I made my way over, I noticed Carrie sitting on her bed. She looked awful.

“That’s good news.” She said.

“Carrie, what happened to you? Here let me clean you up?”

I moved for the medical kit I held under bed just incase. I began cleaning Carrie’s face up then did her hair for her. “Thank you, Kim.”

“Your welcome. That what us nurses are here for. We stick together.”

“Kim?”

“Hm?”

“Can you..”

Just then doctor Bernstine came into our tent. He looked at Carrie. And Carrie looked away. Very unusual. I will have to ask her what was going on. She seemed distant. Like she was pulling away from me as well.

“What are you doing in the nurses tent, Dr. Bernstine?” I asked him head on, forcing him to look at me instead of Carrie.

“I just wanted to let you all know that the three new Doctors arrived.” And then he left the tent just as abruptly as he came in.

“Carrie, you ready for the meeting of our new doctors?” Hoping that by changing the topic from what her and I were going to talk about would help relieve whatever demons she was silently facing. She won’t be facing them any longer once I get to the bottom of this. Carrie was our best head nurse. To see her like this was a red flag to me and anyone who really knew her.

Getting up, she look wiped her palms against her uniform looked at me, “Yes, I am ready. Besides we have tons of patients that need us. Come Kim.”

Smiling a tiny bit of relief took over me. Now, that was Carrie I knew. But little did I expect of what was going to happen next…

Part 3 Coming Soon!

Have You Ever Noticed?

Spy

Have you ever noticed that the best-selling authors want you to by their books, to promote them, to read their work, and the list goes on… and yet when you send them an email stating about your book release or book promotion they send back and an email that states: Please, take me off of this.

Is that fair? Is that how all best-sellers look at us reader, new writers, and bloggers? Are we just here for their beck and call? We should do everything they need/ want us to do to help them be ever successful and yet they don’t want a single thing to do to help us become successful.

But then they would say, yes, I help my future writers out in…. way.

But if you email them about your book that you just published, that ask not to be emailed ever again about it or any other future book you may write. Yet, they keep sending us their latest book update, their book promotions, and to BUY their book. But what do we get in return? Beside paying them for yet another best-selling piece. By buying their work we continue to say, yes, it’s perfectly fine to be at your beck and call and yet when it comes to your own work it’s okay that they turn their backs with a blind eye?

Is this right? Is this what we want?

Do all best–sellers view us new writers as something that isn’t to be taken seriously?

I have helped promote best-selling authors whose work I have always bought, read, reviewed, and enjoyed. Then there are some that I have met that I have to say can’t get off their pedestals for a bit to recognize and take new writers seriously for a brief moment.

Have you ever noticed this issue?
