I started reading American Psycho by Bret Easton Ellis. It is a novel about a wall street banker in the 80s, who leads a double life. I am currently at page 70, and a few things are bugging me. So far, the book is just narrating the life of the main character. As an aspiring banker, I was interested in the novel just to get an idea of what the life of a banker might be like. I know the novel probably exaggerates some of the habits of the characters, but… Continue

Karma is a Sanskrit word that means "action." Karma has commonly been considered a punishment for past bad actions, but karma is neither judge nor jury. Rather, it is simply the universal law of cause and effect that says every thought, word and act carries energy into the world and affects our present reality. Karma can also refer to the "work" we have ahead of us, which includes lessons from both our past and present lives.
Karma is one of those topics that many people know… Continue

I am determined to have a great week this week. I had a productive weekend and so far it is continuing through today (yes I realize it is only 9:30am) but let’s celebrate the small successes.
I pressed the “confirm” button on my fiction book, Stilettos & Scoundrels, to send to final printing. The book will launch March 16th, 2010. I haven’t yet decided if I’m freaked out by this or excited. I have a lot financially riding on this (hence the freaked out part) but surely all my friends… Continue

Thought I'd start off my blog with a review of the first book in the series to the one I'm currently reading.
This book is exciting adventure sci-fi at it's best! It's futuristic, post-humans-almost-destroy-the-world and pretty awesome. In places it reminded me of Orwell's 1984, Alex Garland's The Beach and the video game Fallout 3. I love all three and combined with a good handful of teen drama, this book was brilliant.
Although it is a Young Adult book it didn't read… Continue

So excited to be on Book Blogs!
I am awaiting final copy of my latest book, "Christmas Remembered". It will be available on all major online book retailers.
I am currently writing my first piece of fiction. It is a challenge, as all of my other work has been drawn from personal experience and telling that. This is a bit more difficult! Although it does come from information I well versed in. Genealogy! [It's a modern day genealogy adventure with a little romance thrown… Continue

Consider this scenario:
The plot of your current WIP has run out of steam and you've exhausted all the tricks in your bag to get the creative juices flowing again...coffee, take a break/look at it with fresh eyes, brainstorm with a writing buddy. But, *sigh* nothing has worked. You feel helpless as you watch your WIP sink slowly into the quicksand of your mind.

People are losing jobs at a record pace. The unemployment rate is the highest it has been in 26 years. As the job market continues to tighten, workers seem more expendable, and a more cavalier attitude toward workers' rights has a tendency to develop.
In an age of corporate bailouts and Wall Street favoritism, media attention to workers’ rights issues has languished. In the media Frederick T. Golder's latest work, Uncivil Rights: A Guide to Workers' Rights,
should garner the… Continue

This is my first book review... so bear with me!
Well, this is something I don't normally read. I'm more into the YA novels... being a teen and all. But I did enjoy it. However, if you do not like the medical aspect of some things you might be out of luck. This has a ton of terms I have never heard of but I think they were fun to learn.
Its about a young girl of thirteen who wants medical emancipation from her parents. Her… Continue

Here is an excerpt from The Dive:
Though they had argued many times before, Lori had never had an argument with a finer actor. Despite the fact that Lori had years’ of experience with actors, in her capacity as a television producer, she was entirely unprepared for how Michael went from Jekyll to Hyde.
Michael’s intent was to provide a shocking contrast to his prior attitude, and it worked.
Of course, Michael was… Continue

Carolina Summers Book Reviews had the following to say about A Woman's Touch:
The publisher describes A Woman’s Touch as “a riveting, emotional punch in the
gut.” I must concur. Tena Green’s psychological thriller is as demented as they
come. Don’t get me wrong, Green is a fantastic writer and she spins a tight
narrative. It’s just that the story has… Continue

In June, Robert began training for the August 20 fight with the number four heavyweight contender, Bascomb Toldere. Most fighters were reluctant to begin training early, but he wanted to keep his body in tip-top shape. He began a light schedule and worked up to heavy training.

Here is a portion of Blind Love to whet your appetite:
The party was organized in a circle with trucks on the perimeter, and a fire in the middle. All of the trucks had their tailgates open facing the fire. A couple of them had mattresses in the back for comfort. This was typical for one of their parties, but Stephanie kept having trouble coming to grips with her bad feeling. She tried to cover it up with a couple of beers that Jake… Continue
