A Gentleman’s Memoir ~ By AJ Linn #NaBloPoMo

A Gentleman’s Memoir – By AJ Linn

The Gentleman’s Series Volume 3

AGM- Front Cover RGB

He does it again!  Another fabulous book by AJ Linn.  This is the third book in the Gentleman’s Series, the one that tells the reader about Donovan Hart BEFORE  the book, A Gentleman’s Affair.  It will answer your questions about the Underground, the voyeuristic behavior, and the girls. Oh the girls. And the girls and girls and girls.

Once again, AJ Linn has enlisted the help of his readers to write characters into his story.  The characters were Donovan’s “women” that we read about throughout the book.  I can say that I personally had fun creating my character or characters as they turned out to be.  I did as AJ asked, wrote my characters with a little background so he would understand what I had in mind when I created them.  But, when I handed them over I knew they were then his to do with as he wished.  And boy did he surprise me!  He had told me loved the character submission and when I read what he wrote about them I was blown away.  He is truly a talented and amazing author.  Writing characters into your story is not an easy task and knowing what I do about these books gives me a greater respect and appreciation for what an author does when he puts himself “out there” like this for his readers.  Thank you AJ.  I for one, have loved reading 2 books with my characters written into the story line.

Introducing the new book Masquerade
by S.N. Williams

masquerade cover

Here is the summary from the book:

Have you ever felt like you were wearing a mask, like a masquerade mask you were at ball? I have worn one before at a ball where I felt my most comfortable in my own skin.
My name is Julia Falls. I felt like for some time now that I have been wearing a mask. I had a horrible accident and don’t remember what happened before it or even why I was in an accident. I have never felt like myself until I meet a guy I fall head over heels in love with. Chris is truly my soul mate but I still feel like things are still being hidden from me. Things get worse when my nightmares return of the death of my parents and my accident. Also dealing with raising my little sister is another stress to add to my life.
Will I ever shed the mask? Will Chris and I last through all the turmoil of lies reaching the surface? Time will only tell. Continue reading “My Review of Masquerade by S.N. Williams #NaBloPoMo”

So far…#NaNoWriMo has been good, but it is only the 6th. #NaBloPoMo

I have some friends participating in the #NaNoWriMo this month.  One in particular finally got the kick in the butt needed to work on her own book.  One that I am VERY excited to be a part of to share in the process while she writes.  I love her excitement and enthusiasm.

She has started the book.  And with each chapter I get to know more and more about the characters and plot.  Not only is SHE getting excited about her characters but I AM TOO as the story develops.  Now I am not an author but I am a blogger participating in #NaBloPoMo this month.  So I guess together we are both writing, her more than I, but I get to share her passion for her story and be entertained by her characters.  I am excited to go through this month with her.  I am excited to see what happens to the characters.  I am excited to see her being excited about her book.  I am excited about her book.  I am excited for her!

Meet New Author J.R. Gray ~ Legally Bound (Bound #1)

Meet author J.R. Gray.  I came across J.R. on Twitter in a discussion with an author we both liked.  Over time, we got friendly and started following each other and getting to know one another.  I found out that J.R. was an author working on the first book in a series.  Having read some writing samples I knew what I was looking forward t,o but never expected the awesome book that was published on March 24, 2014.  I couldn’t wait to read it and thoroughly enjoyed it.

Get Uncomfortable – Try A New or Different Genre or Author

Have you ever picked up a book or bought an eBook that was not your normal genre?  Maybe a story about a topic that was different than the rest of the books you have on the shelf?  Try it once and see what you think.  Challenge yourself to try a new genre, or a new author.

I did once.  I did it because of two of the authors in the anthology, Nikka Michaels and Eileen Griffin.   I have known these two ladies before they officially started writing books.  They have come on the literary scene with a bang!  The stories they write are amazingly hot and fun to read and they just keep writing and writing.  I am not complaining.  I am enjoying their work.

So they were a part of the anthology called Alpha’s Claim:Manlove Edition by Evernight Publishing.  This book has ten stories in it and I can honestly say after reading their two stories I tried a few others and didn’t like them as well, but honestly, this isn’t my genre.  It has nothing to do with the authors or stories, I do not read books like this often.  Well, I never have. But because of these two ladies, I read their stories and did enjoy them.  I was very proud of myself for trying something new and different. Not my norm.  But I am glad I did.

alpha claimTitle: Alpha’s Claim: Manlove Edition

Authors: Tyler Robbins, Avril Ashton, Nikka Michaels, JC Holly, Lucy Felthouse, Karly Germain, Eileen Griffin, Tamsin Baker and Giselle Renarde

Publisher: Evernight Publishing

Genre: Paranormal/Shifter/M-M Romance

Anthology

4 Stars – Recommended Read

Synopsis:

The shifters in our Alpha’s Claim anthology have one thing in common—they won’t take “no” for an answer. Whether they lead packs of their own, or whether they walk a solitary path, these alphas won’t let anyone stop them from claiming their women.
