Only one today. Pretty skinny after the last two days but, hey, we have time to read only so many, right? Free, courtesy of BookBub's Thursday email "When God burns down your house, you know it's time to move." What a great opening line. It had me hooked. 🙂 The characters are single, writer's, dealing with … Continue reading Free today Oct 3, 2019
This time it's different. I've written other posts, lamenting what could have been great writing were it not watered down with obligatory but unnecessary sex scenes. This book is the exception... the sex scenes are not here to titillate the reader. They are an integral part of the story... unfortunately. There wouldn't be a story without the raw honesty in … Continue reading Something I Am Not
It's always a special moment for me when a story speaks into my life with something appropriate for the place I'm at. Unexpectedly, this book has done just that, more than once. It feels like validation. The Presence would have caught my interest even if I was at a different point in life. Having it relate to where I … Continue reading The Presence
This is going to be another, very basic, catch up list. Distracted by a great number of compelling reads, there was not much writing going on this summer, and the lineup of finished books is growing longer. The books on this list were well worth reading and I wish there was time to enlarge on them all, as enticement. There is no time though, … Continue reading Flowers in The Snow, and more
This is the final list of Staci Stallings books in my three-part series of posts highlighting her work. Twenty books (in five years) is an impressive list of downloads, in my estimation. Part of the reason for so many is her regular willingness to offer books free or at reduced prices..... my kind of books. I'm pretty sure her books … Continue reading Staci Stallings Part 3
This will be Staci Stallings books in my-Kindle-collection part two, but first....... I have pressure building up from a major frustration and need to vent before I explode. Please, please, please, rewrite as many times as it takes before you publish. Do you know how disappointing it is to read a book that could be great if it … Continue reading Staci Stallings Part 2
Out of curiosity, after downloading yet another Staci Stallings book, I searched my downloads to see how many other Stallings books are in my Kindle collection. There have been nineteen since 2012, and only three have been mentioned in this blog. It's time to change all that. As an encouragement to writers out there, Staci's website tells the story of beating … Continue reading Featuring Staci Stallings…Part 1
Walk to Beautiful: The Power of Love and a Homeless Kid Who Found the Way Mr Jimmy Wayne with Ken Abraham This is the powerful story of a little boy who lives with unimaginable neglect, abuse and hardship and is rescued as a teenager by an elderly couple who knew the transforming power of love. It is also the … Continue reading Walk to Beautiful: The Power of Love….
I don't feel like writing... and the reason for this is not good. A blogger I follow is going through a rough patch and it is his pain that started mine. Empathy. I sense pain in others and take it on as my own. I don't mean to, I know it's not healthy - taking another's pain … Continue reading I don’t feel like writing….
This week is about books, some I loved and some...I didn't. Generally, I don't like to talk about books I dislike in a blog post (I save my rants over pet peeves for in person conversations not caught on camera) Putting dislike into words in a blog post just feels too much like a written rejection letter. I would … Continue reading A favorite book this week
