Right – Book Review

Right

This is a standalone romance, however it does feature characters from Jana Aston’s previous book, Wrong. You do not need to have read Wrong to enjoy Right, however I recommend you do. Not only is it is a great read, it also gives you the opportunity to get to know the brilliant Everly and of course the beginning of her story.

Becoming a Writer in Your 40s, 50s, and Beyond

hands elderly

 

by Lauren Sapala

Age can be a touchy topic for artists of all types. There’s a glamorous myth that says all the geniuses come into their talent at a young age, and by the time they’re 30 they have already reached astonishing heights of prowess.

But like so many other sexy tales that figure into writing mythology, this one has little basis in fact.

Confronting Destiny – Book Review

The Book Review Directory

confronting-destiny

Confronting Destiny is a fantasy novel by self-published author A.L. Tesh following the story of two young cousins, Kaleen, Melena as they learn to hone their respective skills and prepare for an upcoming battle against the Karogs, a rival Kingdom.

Like all good characters in a fantasy novel, the girls each have their own special abilities; both are remarkable fencers,  Melena is part elf, giving her extra agility and fine-tuned senses, and Kaleen has an inborn ability to control the aether, a force much like that in Star Wars. Kaleen also happens to be a reluctant future Queen, struggling with the decision to rule her realm or keep her freedom.

by Teagan Berry

A little while ago I finished up the first draft of a manuscript. Since then, I’ve tried (and failed) multiple times to pick up another unfinished first draft of a project that’s been sitting around for the past few months. Needless to say, it hasn’t gone well.

I’ve maybe managed to hash out a few hundred words – and that’s probably being generous. The words just aren’t flowing like they were while I was working on the other manuscript. At first, I thought it was just because I wasn’t quite sure where to go with the new story from where I’ve left off. But it isn’t that, and it’s taken me until now to realize that lack of plot isn’t the problem I have. I have the post-project funk.

OMG!! I just could not put this book down… Daisy and Kas… Holy Hell!! What a pair!

Right from the start you get to meet Daisy Smith, a tough young woman who is doing her best for her and her brother with the horrible cards that they have been dealt in life.  As she is barely keeping their heads above water, a too good to be true job brings them into a downward spiral that they never expected.
