YOU are walking on Miami Beach in Florida; the sky is dark and threatening to rain. You see a handsome Egyptian man walking down the beach carrying a leather pouch over his right shoulder, he looks back anxiously, as if someone might be following him but when he does so he stumbles and falls, spilling the seeds in his pouch. Asim hurriedly picks up the seeds, counting them as he drops each one back into his case.
It starts to rain and he quickly rushes off, not knowing that he has lost a single seed. It starts to rain harder as you see something protruding from the sand, and then a beautiful red rose grows almost instantly. You must be seeing things.
You approach the rose and when you bend down to examine it something amazing happens.
“Quick,” says the rose. “Hide me before he comes back. I grant wishes and all the wishes he wants are evil ones. Please take me home with you.”
You dig up the flower and head back to your hotel.
Unrealistic or not my writing gives me hope. But with something like 50 000 books published every month it is a little discouraging. I didn’t think there were that many writers. But I continue to write and hope.
You have a nice shelf.
I hope you are reading lots of interesting books.
Knights of the Dragon:
Leander is under siege. It seems their wizard is dying. A dragon befriends a boy and hires knights to save his kingdom. Alexa is a match for any man, except perhaps for Stone; they’ve had eyes for one another for years, though neither will admit it. A dragon is born that turns out to be a wizard, a rare dragon indeed.
And there are whispers of a boy wizard.
It’s a tale of wizards, dragons, romance and knights.
I have just processed your combine for Ariana Franklin's A Murderous Procession where you mention that the author has passed away. You can add that to her author page yourself if you like?
If you have any questions, please let me know!
Looks like you have ties to CT!! Thought I would let you know about me new book which starts out in CT and whose principal character is from CT. Take a look at my website www.readpete.com or www.readpete.net for more on my book - CONFEDERATE GOLD AND SILVER. It has 2 stories within it, one that takes place in 2011 and the other which takes place in 1863. It's historical fiction and it's MUCH MORE than just a book about the Civil War. WHY IS A FEDERAL JUDGE, THE MAYOR OF CHARLESTON (SC) AND A NORTH CAROLINA FARMER NOW INVOLVED IN THE HUNT FOR THE LOST CONFEDERATE TREASURY??? Hope u enjoy what u see!! Peter F.

Hey, just browsing and I saw your bookshelf. Some good Dean Koontz. He's one of my faves and a super-cool guy as well. I actually dedicated a book of mine called RUN to him because he's been such a great guy over the years (he's friends with my dad, so I get to call him once in a while and gush about him). Anywho, cool shelf; thanks for letting me browse!
oooo you found the other Meg books! I tried at my library but will have to use interlibrary loan!
If you like the Faye Kellerman novels you might like The Mourning Sexton by Michale Baron. It is about an orthodox jewish lawyer. It has jewish terms in the back and I really have to watch some slang I used. I never knew they were bad words for the jewish!
where in CT are you? I have 2 sons and their families in Meriden. Been following the Yale murder on CNN and see pics of Middlwtown and Cromwell where I used to live and work.
I liked it a lot. Actually, the reason I didn't love it is because I kept waiting for a surprise that never came. It is actually rather straightforward. I am going to read it again in the future with less expectations. I have The Edible Woman waiting for me after I finish Dracula.
