January Exposure by Sunny Benson

Tuesday, May 28th, 2013 review

Sunny presents a pretty good, fun murder/mystery tale that is a real page-turner. I enjoyed this story from the beginning to the end. This book belongs to the Ellie Craven series. This is a fast paced detective aficionado tale. The book contains everything to make it a fun, interesting read. All of the secrets, murder, broken hearts, and snooping are what make this (more…)

Ivory Autumn, Author of Young Adult Fantasy

Ivory, when and why did you begin writing? 

I can’t remember the exact date I decided I wanted to be a writer.  Who I am, and what I love to do, reminds me of the movie, “Alice in Wonderland.”  I have always, been “Alice, or a writer” but the more I write, paint, live, and gain experience, the more “Alice, or writer-like” I become.  My mother has always inspired me to write, and to go after my dreams. She would read to me and my siblings almost every night when I was growing up. She read us wonderful classic books that are worth reading, stories that filled our heads full of characters worth emulating.

Also, the messages I would like to share about being an author is to go after your dreams, whatever they are.  I believe that every person on earth has an inherent gift planted inside of them that will enrich themselves and mankind, if they choose to nurture that gift. Just like a sunflower seed is born to become a sunflower—your dreams, and gifts must be giving proper water, sun and nurturing for them to grow and become what they are meant to become.

Alice, that is quite different. What is the title of your book? 

I’ve written three books.

Flotsam, my YA chapter book. It’s a work of fiction inspired by my Grandpa’s WWII POW story, our pet baby deer our family took care of when we were young, and just my own imagination.

The other books I’ve written are the first two installments of my YA fantasy series, Andrew and the Quest of Orion’s belt. The first book is entitled, Rise of the Fallen. And the second book is, The Canvas War.

I’ve written my fantasy series under my pseudonym (more…)

Touch of Silver by Melissa R. Smith

A readersFavorite review

This adult paranormal story it isn’t your regular Bella meets Eduard kind of saga. It gives a very nice and interesting twist to the many vampire stories out there. It uses a refreshing, renewed and great way to entertain all the vampire readers in the world without tiring them of the genre.

Devani, a human woman who once was connected to her partner—a Sanguine named Roman, is being harassed by the Militia. Her father was the president until he retired and later died. Now his best friend’s son, London, is at the head and is making a sport of (more…)

Interview of an LDS Mystery author Loraine Scott

Saturday, May 18th, 2013

Lorraine, what does your day look like?

My typical writing day is squeezed in between all the other aspects of my life.  Several years ago, I had all the time I wanted to write and gladly, I took advantage of that luxury. Sadly, that time has passed and now, like most women, I shove my precious creative thoughts behind more serious demands. Hopefully, I will soon be back with oodles of time where I can sit for several hours at a time and write away the stories that dwell in my head. Who else but a writer (more…)

Your Family Legacy by Michael Palumbos

Tuesday, May 14th, 2013

A review

Your Family Legacy is a road map for not only success in getting money in your pocket, but also a way to leave a positive and sustainable legacy for our family. I believe if this map was to be use and carefully follow, that we too would find a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. This a Mr. Palumbos quote in his book James Allen. He had said: “The greatest achievement was at first and for a time a dream. The oak sleeps in the acorn, the bird waits in the egg, and in the highest vision of the soul a waking angel stirs. Dreams are (more…)

“Aisha” by Denis W. Schulz a review

Tuesday, May 7th, 2013

Aisha has a very different style of writing, very different from what I am accustomed to; actually it is not bad. It took me a minute to understand that this phrase isn’t bad: “Fortunately the imp grew arm-weary and after a hectic minute and a half he paused to get his breath.” Cool, nicely expressed. As English is my second language, it took me a lot longer to read this story. I had to ask, Is this phrase all right? I learned that it is fine even when is not the kind of English to which I am accustomed. Imagine that! Well, you are just going to have to read it for yourself to see what I mean. (more…)
