Hello guys!

I'm in dire need for Amazon reviews.  Of course I would be more than glad to do the same for you.

I specialise in education. I've written several parenting guides. If any of you is willing to read any of my books, then I can buy them and send them to you as a gift.

Whether you are a parent or simply work with kids, my guides will be of use to everyone who believes that children are our future. Their brain capabilites are infinite and as adults our role is to help them develop their potential. In my books I provide you with strategies and tools to do so and to help kids thrive. 

In my free time I read a lot of books, various genres. Please let me know if you want to receive my book.

So, that's me - Julie Elizabeth Powell (pen) ever hopeful, with a passion fo words that allow my imagination to roam where it will; or where the characters take me. :)

Thank you.

In the first book of the Sea-anan Saga, A Lost Kitten, readers meet John McCall. The second book, A Forgotten Kitten, features Areo McCall. Both of these intriguing protagonists are children of an intergalactic marriage. Now, fans of the saga will be thrilled to learn the story of how their parents get together. 

A Seacat’s Love takes readers back in time to planet Earth, where Rick McCall is committed to living the lonely life of a government spy after losing his wife and unborn daughter due to his own arrogance and poor decisions. 

Leonora, one of the top scientists on the planet of Oceana and a high-ranking Seacat Warrior, is a humanoid feline who has come to Earth to study human evolution and find similarities between earthlings and oceanans. But her expedition’s camp is stormed by the human army. 

Rick and Leonora first encounter each other at a secret military lab during the cat woman’s attempt to escape her captors. When she collides with Rick in a corridor, Leonora begs for his help, claiming that the government has been experimenting on her, and one look into the frightened feline’s pale-blue eyes is enough to stir the hardened spy’s heart. For Leonora, the spark ignites in her chest after Rick dares to defy his government and his own commanding officer to aid her and her colleague Tigif. She recognizes the nobility in this selfless act of helping strangers—aliens from another world, no less! 

Now committed to helping Leonora and Tigif remain safely out of the clutches of a wrongful government and find a way back to their home planet, Rick faces many difficult choices—but he doesn’t want to repeat the past and make another devastatingly wrong decision. His relationship with Leonora grows in fits and starts, constantly undermined by Tigif’s devious plots, and Leonora is threatened by Tigif’s increasingly forceful advances. As they avoid a massive government dragnet, fight off dangerous feline fevers, and try to retrieve the aliens’ ship, heated emotions of jealousy, distrust, and resentment that arise in the confusion put their very lives in jeopardy.

Many readers enjoy Star Wars-esque stories of conflict on faraway planets, while other readers tend to stick to epic romances. Few authors have managed to combine the two genres in such a seamless way as Jessica A. Kong has in her Sea-anan Saga. She has created a highly complex story with fully developed characters, and the themes explored here are inarguably adult, yet the reading level required is no more than eighth grade. A Forgotten Kitten zips along at just the right pace, allowing the reader to digest the complexity of the plot and interrelation between the characters without having to think too hard. The story revolves around Sev, a young, handsome prince and member of a royal family who rises to become king of the Oceanan race. Sev is raised in the midst of a vicious family feud, but all seems worth it when his adoptive aunt gives birth to a beautiful little girl whom Sev falls instantly and irrevocably in love with. But when Sev’s planet collides with its own sun and collapses, he must bear the loss of his entire family, including his love as well as any memory of her. Areo, the heroine of the story, is that little girl that Sev fell for during his childhood. She is a human-feline hybrid who has grown to hate the royal family that her soul mate hails from. She undergoes a destructive event and space travel episode similar to Sev’s, and it is not too long before she has settled her new planet and with her fellow half-bloods, created a strong, thriving society. When she is brutally attacked by Daehog, everyone in her empire is scattered throughout the universe. Where does she land but the planet that Sev is currently occupying. What follows is a continually building conflict interlaced with one of the most fervently passionate love stories seen in these kinds of novels. Kong chooses not just to write about space travel, or war, or love, or family, or even racism; instead, she chooses to combine all of these classic literary themes into one amazing story. The result is a mysterious and ultimately deeply satisfying story that only leads to the craving for more from this gifted and astoundingly creative writer. Reading should always be enjoyable, especially when reading escapist literature, and Kong has remembered this and accomplished it without sacrificing plot or characterization. The task of any science fiction writer is to take alien, unbelievable concepts and present them in a way that convinces the reader they are plausible in reality, and Kong has certainly hit the mark with her second novel in this delightfully mystifying series.

***Reviewers Needed & Free on Kindle Unlimited***

“A titillating opening to a space-opera romance series…given the number of John’s siblings, the Sea-anan saga has the potential to keep readers entertained for several installments.” —Kirkus Reviews 


Seacat John McCall labels the attack on the Sea-anan Empire as a nightmare. He escapes the enemy’s invasion, only to find himself stranded on a distant planet called Surreal. Tormented by thoughts of his family being massacred or captured by the enemy, he focuses on returning to aid them until he experiences a mind-boggling kiss that can only come from the one he is meant to share his life with. To ease the terror he feels for his family, John seeks the identity of his secret admirer. He quickly learns the true meaning of nightmare when he discovers his soul mate is of “the mist.” 

Jasira Eversole is drawn to the powerfully built outlander sitting at the king’s table. Unable to resist the need to see him again, she enters the warrior’s room while he sleeps. John’s rugged good looks and chiseled body compel Jasira to reach out and touch him. Being of the mist, Jasira knows she will not be able to feel John, but she cannot resist his pull. The richness of John’s hair, the firmness of his muscles, and the clean scent of his skin all take Jasira off guard. She swiftly realizes John is her intended mate. Now, Jasira must somehow convince the young warrior that they are two halves of one soul without chasing him off Surreal, leaving her to a lonely existence as mist.

I'm seeking reviews for my Urban Fantasy novel. It contains vampires, werewolves, magic, dragons and holds a lot of mystery and adventure.

I currently have three (5 star) reviews on Amazon and I'm looking to receive more feedback from readers or reviewers, because as an author, I'd like to know if I appeal fans of this genre.

If you're interested, please email me at:

yzavela.narvaez@gmail.com

and I'll send you a PDF copy.

In return, I'll be more than happy to review your book in return if it's in the same genre but please, NO EROTICA                                                           or SAME SEX GENDER THEMES.

Also too, book 2 of my series is available for pre-order and I'm looking for reviews for that one as well. 

HAPPY READING, EVERYONE :)

by David Russell author of Self's Blossom.

25-6-2015.

"This monumental work, really breaks down literary categories in the quest for truth. The Lost Chronicles of Sophia are the 'Gospel' of Mary Magdalene, expressing Goddess values, apparently destroyed when fanatical Christians wrecked the library of Alexandra, terrified of the claim that Christ's ...true teaching was communicated to Mary Magdalene, rather than to his Disciples, and that Mary Magdalene was his lover. The novel is concerned with the rediscovery of this book, its resuscitation and application of its fundamental lessons - to replace Patriarchal tyranny with Matriarchal truth.

Involved in the physical, and metaphysical quest for the Gnostic truth of this book is a 'star-studded' mass of world mythological entities . . . Greek, Nordic . . ."

"There is tension between the feminists' pacifist ideals and the possible need for force to eliminate the patriarchy. Many of the women were mistreated, and longed to 'get one back' on their abusers. Their number includes Hecate, who embraces darkness and evil, but has right on her side because of her past suffering, just as, in Dualism, a Snake can be a Saviour, and the Devil God's alter ego. All the 'godly' characters have 'flawed mortal' characteristics which make them convincing. Dualism/contrariety is prominent in the main characters: "I am everywhere loved and adored, and everywhere condemned and despised . . . formless yet with infinite variegated forms".

"The author reflects on 'cyclic time'; there is an angel 'walking backwards into the future'. "Thousands of years of history had already happened, were yet to happen and were happening." Mooniana oscillates mythological antiquity and contemporary life - world politics - and today's popular culture - including pop stars and Bollywood cinema, linking the occult to the everyday. The characters also drift out of, and into, their own bodies. As a 'bridge, it focuses on fashionable 'New Age' cults, including a 'free school' - the Albatross Boarding School, as well as a hippie commune and an experimental theatre in Verona - featuring a wide video screen plus music, dance and drama events which melt into spiritual/mythical areas."

"There are two parallel love stories: Joanne Voegrin, a harpist, becomes obsessed with her teacher, Paul Vallidin, while Christiane Wulff develops a fascination for Oriental Studies professor Franz Abel. Each woman holds her beloved in of awe, whilst feeling a degree of irritation with their seeming pedantry and pomposity. Both couples oscillate between their mundane personalities and their mythical entities - Joanne became the mystical Sophia."

Comment by Miranda Moondawn on June 27, 2015 at 6:15pm

"There is an in-depth exploration of transcendental eroticism, including the practice of coitus reservatus. The six offspring of Zeus are challenged to share 'the Philanderer's son without any jealousy or rivalry between you . . . if you can do this, I will grant each of you your deepest and most ardent desire - including usurping the Throne of Olympus. Another ritual includes a suitably androgynous Hermes figure who is, however, an object of some suspicion, perhaps a 'two-faced' intermediary between the Goddesses and the male Ruler. There is a beautiful Sapphic consummation. On another occasion, Ashok, a male 'initiate' is supposed to abnegate his maleness in order to bond with a group of six sisters - become a seventh sister. But he must somehow regain it in order to overturn the patriarchy: "Without his arrogant, ambitious ally (his Daimon), how could he write the Sisters' narrative?" Also, the Goddesses had initially held a stance of neutrality, which they were forced to abandon through being outraged. They had to take on some of the terminology of their adversaries: "In your name we shall avenge you, and destroy the destroyers, wiping every last vestige of the tyranny and greed of the cult of the one God from the face of the planet." But it still remained necessary to 'create a neutral zone on earth'.

There is some questioning of the relationship between earthly and spiritual love: "Joanne seemed oddly unemotional. Either she was glad to rid of a romantic rival, or else she was very advanced in Yogic detachment."

"Some quite perceptive searchings of the relationship between art and 'real life': "For Lorely's characters, life could only be a play. These chaotic characters would find themselves again in real-life situations which were, in reality, only external mirrors of well-rehearsed internalised rituals and narratives." There had previously been a reference to Kierkegaard: "A man writes a novel in which one of the characters goes mad. At some point in the story, the one writing the novel goes insane too, and he finishes the work in the first person." Similarly, fictionalising can be a two-way process, as Paul tells the sisters: "Just as I am writing your story, you are writing mine . . ."; "They were both poets and would meet in each other's poems and stories which were just as real." No omniscient narrator here!"

"Part of the conclusion is presented in dramatic form, which adds a further, living dimension to the focus of the theatre venue. Characters described in narrative become characters speaking for themselves; third persons become first persons. This further accentuates the hypnotic effect of the many dance rituals portrayed in this work.

"The author treated the 9/11 attacks as a sort of Armageddon, a symbolic destruction of the old patriarchal order. This interpretation, I feel, was totally appropriate to the time when those incidents took place - but perhaps less so, in terms of what has passed under the bridge since then. She makes a minimal reference to the rise of the Islamic state; perhaps some updating would be in order."

David Russell
