Build Me A World!

What is it about the words ‘world building’ that on one hand conjures up images of fantastical lands with mythical beings and heroes / heroines willing to face any challenge, while on the other hand it sets off my anxiety?

I have a huge stack of books beside my bed. Massive. Probably twenty or so in heavy rotation and another stack that are waiting for a bit of attention. I keep them there not so much for reading, as I used to when I was younger, but for motivation.


When I'm working on my novel, and I need to see some great dialogue, or a chapter intro that really works, that uses minimal words to paint a scene, or some heart-thumping action, I have books for that. I read them and find the…

Leo Maloney Termination Orders Code Name Cobra


This was a great week to read this novel. Leo Maloney and his character Cobra, are very patriotic guys: doing the right thing for the right reasons. The story is emotional, raw and intense. I love a novel that wears its heart on its sleeve, makes for a good read. Let’s get right to the action shall we?

“Leo J. Maloney, former Black Ops contractor, penned this action thriller novel as a quasi-memoir about the dark but arguably necessary side of intelligence that the…

Books with impact

Every now and again I read a book that has a profound effect on me. Today I am going to review two such books.

Reviewers, Part 2

I wrote last week's rant a few weeks ago during the time I was attempting to find reviewers for "Night Shadows." At the time, I didn't plan for this to go any further than one blog. However, since then, I've taken on a new assignment: reviewing books for Suspense Magazine, a monthly Internet publication. You can find more details about the magazine at I've agreed review a couple of books per month. If you're…

Sherri Hayes Discusses Hidden Threat

Sherri Hayes is available for interviews and guest posts on your blog. If you would like to host Sherri Hayes, please contact donna at thewriterscoffeeshop dot com.


Writing is a great escape for me. Growing up I loved singing and acting. The best parts of both were getting into the characters heads and bringing them and their stories to life. Nothing has changed; expect that I now do the same thing with words rather than my voice or my body.

I tend to fall…

The 6th Man David Baldacci

What can I say about a novel by a guy whose last name ends in a vowel like mine? What do you think? I wonder does he come from the old country like I do, I mean Trenton, N.J. I really don’t know; I haven’t had the pleasure and privilege of interviewing one of my favorite authors on this planet. I have read and consumed every word that the man has written that I can get my hands on. Here in The 6th Man I thought, hey, he is taking Sean King and Michelle Maxwell, one…

How I Celebrated National Teacher Appreciation Week

Did you know that this is National Teacher Appreciation Week? Don’t feel bad if the answer is no. I’m a teacher, and it wasn’t even on my radar. I still celebrated though. Here’s how:

Books to Grow By...

So many books, so little time is a common lament heard amongst we bibliophiles.  Someone once asked me, "What's a 'good book'?"  The short answer is: That depends.  The longer answer may vary as widely as the Grand Canyon.  So in the interest of "reading time well spent" I recently compiled a list of Books to Grow By, which is featured on the Book Shelf page of…

Alexandrea Weis Guest Post Recovery

The Meaning of Recovery


In writing Recovery, the sequel to my first book To My Senses, I incorporated a great deal of my experiences with the aftermath of Katrina into the novel. It was not a cathartic event but writing this novel did help me to redefine what the concept of recovery meant to me.


     I had lived in Lakeview about a half a mile from the now infamous seventeenth street canal. When we were finally allowed back into…

Brett Battles Sick

I am going to channel my teenage son here: “Sick is just sic, it is off the hook sic, basically it can’t get any sic’r than it is.” Now to understand the teenage mind just a little bit, that means it is good in a good way even though it doesn’t sound that way. For me, being the geezer that I am, I would say that it is just rad, hip and cool, peachy keano, or something along those old man one foot in the grave type things. But seriously folks, I am a big Cleaner fan, the…
