Book Discussion – Their Kidnapped Bride – Bridgewater Menage Series – Book One

Now onto the discussion…

So, I am convinced that women who write books like this are writing from some fantasy that they wish they could live it out. I just don’t have another way to explain it. A book about a young innocent girl who is sold to a brothel by her stepbrother and then bought at a marriage auction where she becomes the wife of two men? I mean, come on.

It wasn’t a bad book, but books like these are full on erotica and little story. It’s about the sex and for some reason I find a lot of these on my Kindle (what I get for downloading free books).

If you love reading a story about a girl being taken by two men, this will be right up your alley. I’m a girl who loves a really solid story that draws me in and has a lot of meat to it (not that kind of meat). This fell short for me in that department.

When will I learn to read what the book is about before reading it?

Probably never because that is apart of the joy for me. The discovery, of picking up a book and going in blind.

Nevertheless, I gave it four stars. It wasn’t horrible, just not really my thing.

What did you guys think? Leave me a comment and let me know.

Book Discussion – Highlander’s Castle – Highlander Heat – Book One

A love that can travel through time.

Hey love-bugs, as always spoilers are a strong possibility. So, if you haven’t yet read this book, go and do so and then come back to tell me what you thought.

This was an interesting story and clearly fantasy. It is nice to dream about though. A love that can move through time and space.

That’s what Anne McCleod experiences when she is pulled back in time by her ancestor Annie McCleod. The two could be identical twins which is why everyone mistook Anne for Annie. Annie quickly fell for Alex McDonald who Annie was supposed to handfast with for a year to stop feuding between their clans.

It was really amazing how Anne was so willing to jump into that makeshift marriage without knowing who the guy was. There was also a time where she uttered in her sleep about Alex never leaving her. I do which the author had touched on that some more. Like maybe that hadn’t been the first time they time traveled and switched place but were only now noticing. I don’t, that little bit was left hanging.

The fact that Anne was able to save her parents from dying in the future and bring them back with her to the past. A little far fetched, but I guess if you’re looking to give the story an all around happy ending, it wouldn’t seem so crazy.

It was a cute story and now a long read. Four stars from me.

Book Discussion – March Blues – Book Three

Hey love-bugs,

Spoilers are a strong possibility, so if you haven’t yet read this story, please go read it and come back to tell me what you thought.

Now onto the discussion…

I keep waiting for this to get good and it just isn’t. I feel like by the time I finish the final story I am going to be upset because, so far it seems like this could have all been one book instead of broken up into four small stories.

Reading it is just painful because there are so many holes in the story. It jumps from one thing to the next. Nothing is cohesive. The author wanted to tell the story and publish it as fast as possible. If that isn’t true, that it what I get when I read these stories.

It’s sad because there is so much potential there and I feel like the author just didn’t grasp that.

This series is not my favorite and I feel bad about putting you all through this.

What did you guys think? Let me know.

The next book up for discussion thankfully finishes this series up…

Getting Friends and Family Support

Hey 133 Followers,

This week I want to talk about the role friends and family play in your success.

Anyone who knows me knows that I’ve wanted nothing else but to be in the entertainment industry. My first passion is acting and it has been since I was three years old. Writing was a happy accident at the age of fourteen and I hope to one day produce and direct.

Everyone knows this. Everyone supports this. With words.

There are tons of, “I’m going to purchase your book/movie when you put it out”, “you’re going to be big”, “I will support you in any way I can.” That is until you actually ask for that support.

This is something I’m experiencing at the moment. This is not a negative towards the few that purchased my first book. I truly appreciate the support. This is more about the wide lack of support.

It’s no secret that I quit my job to pursue writing full-time (plus the job was sucking the life out of me) and when I did, I thought of ways to supplement my income until I started making income from my writing. One of the ways was creating fun t-shirts on teespring. The other was starting a Gofundme account. I felt weird about the latter, like I quit my job and then ask for donations? It’s safe to say that page did not last long (although several people do it). I then discovered a platform that made me feel less scavie. Patreon. It’s dedicated to helping artistic types fund their careers. How great is that? So, I created an account.

They tell you to share your Patreon account on your personal Facebook page. That your first patrons should generate from family and friends.

So… What does it mean when your friends and family doesn’t become a patron?

I had this sinking feeling that if I can’t even get my F&F to pledge $1 towards my career endeavors, how do I get complete strangers to do it?

Then there’s the feeling of maybe no one really believes in you.

It’s an awful feeling but it’s what floats to the surface. I mean, it’s a dollar. I couldn’t even get one dollar from ONE person. No wonder no one else will do it, my own mama won’t.

These thoughts and feelings are not good for my depression. My anxiety flares up. I feel like I’m standing in quick sand sinking fast.

So, I had to realize something. Your family and friends do not determine your worth. If you sit and wait for them to acknowledge you, you will be waiting forever and completely missed out on making your dreams come true.

This is a sad realization but a necessary one.

You have to go out there and fight for what you believe is yours. For me, it’s my place in the entertainment industry. When at first my feelings would be hurt, now I am more determined.

I hope this courage so anyone in a similar situation. It’s very unlikely that anyone will even read this because no one reads my posts. If you do happen to read this and would like to become a patron, click the image below.

Until the next time…

  

Review: The Viscount’s Christmas Temptation By Erica Ridley

  
A cute and fun romance. Lady Amelia Ravenwood is ready to take a husband so that her brother, the Duke, will feel it’s okay to take a wife. She has chosen several prospects and needs an event to entertain them all. When the Viscount Benedict Sheffield’s Christmas party is cancelled, she works to have it reinstated and in the process finds love.

Hard to get into at the beginning. Story picks u pace in the second chapter. It was cute and fun and interesting to watch these two people fall in love. I was left wanting so much more, which is expected in a novella. The characters met, fell in love and then that was that.

I expected more to come out of the wooing process but as I said this is a novella so things are a bit rushed to get the point across. However, this is set in a time when wooing or courting was how you went about marrying. These characters seemed to almost jump right into.

It was a cute story but not one that I would pick up to read again as a just because read.

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Reviewless: Sort Of

Hey 128 followers,

I didn’t have enough time to read a book so that I could get a review up for you but I didn’t want to leave you guys hanging. I have some exciting news.

Yesterday I happened to log onto Author Central, as I often do, and I noticed that I had a new review for my book Power. So being the curious girl that I am, I checked out the review and could not wipe the smile from my face.

It was five stars!

There are times when I doubt whether I am a good writer and if my book is any good, but when I see something like that it makes me proud.

Another five star.

Not my first and hopefully not my last.

Now I’ve got to get writing because I can’t leave everyone hanging for that second book.

Check out my book below and also become a patron for just $1 and help me get one step closer to my future.

Radish Reads #1

  
Happy Friday my wonderful 128 followers,

As a writer, I think it is important to read, and I like to read. Actually, I think like is too soft a word for how I feel about reading.

On this glorious Friday I want to talk about a story I read on Radish. If you are not familiar with Radish and you read my last post, Radish is a lot like Wattpad. You write stories and share them with readers. The difference is, with Radish you can make money. Now, I’m not too sure how that works, whether it’s based off of reads, votes or shares. Plus, you have to put in an application to be consider a writer for the app (still waiting to hear back about mine by the way).

Moving on.

Like with my Wattpad posts, I I’ll not be sharing the name of the story or author.

Yesterday I clicked on the first story that popped up and I didn’t put my iPad down until I finished it. At least I’m hoping that I didn’t finish it because where the author left off at was just cruel.

There was so much going on with this story. It had paranormal entities, a bunch of mystery/triller vibes and whole lot of erotic scenes.

It was actually labeled a mystery but if I had to place it in a genre category, it would be Erotic Mystery (if such a genre existed).

It almost felt like the author wanted to tell a sex story and needed a new and fresh way to do it. A way that hasn’t been done. So, why not throw in a girl with physic abilities, a couple ghost and a murder mystery?

I’m telling, you I could not put it down and I like a good erotic novel like the next girl but it was the murder mystery that held me. I legit need this case solved and I hope that the author isn’t going to leave me hanging because it’s been months since she’s posted. Which is a downside to apps like this because you could get so wrapped up in a story and then the author decides to stop posting.

I just want to scream at the top of my lunges, “why!?”

I have been left with this big hole in my gut. It’s almost like my sister telling me that she’s going to make backed Mac n cheese for dinner but when I get to her house she’s changed her mind. I feel so empty right now. I need to know what happened.

Ugh, I think I’m going to go drown my misery in another book.

Until we meet again followers…
