I hope that the season finds you warm and reading. It is so cold outside. You have an interesting shelf.
It’s hard to believe that it’s 2013.
Dracula: Hearts of Stone (Dracula is a good guy)
We start with a shiny new pot of boiling water and add too many evil vampires, and not enough of the good biters. Toss in one suicidal Dracula; add a cup of mayhem and a dash of romance. Stir in some red sheriffs. Oh yes, and a pinch of mirth. Stir lovingly and you have a novel by A. J. Gallant. If it sounds like the recipe for you then you must read Dracula: Hearts of Stone.
Please check out my author page for excerpts:
Unrealistic or not my writing gives me hope. But with something like 50 000 books published a month it is a little discouraging. I can just picture my book underneath that pile being crushed. I didn’t think there were that many writers.
Just saw your review on The Hobbit. Funny, I think it was my 4th grade teacher that read us the book as well. We loved it so much we made her read it again. Then there was a rush on the book in the library. I didn't get to read it myself until the 5th grade lol. Hate to think how my life would have turned out if my teacher hadn't read that.
Hello, I have not yet read the book, but given the controversial nature of its topic, I am unsure as to what level of assurance I have that the ratings reflect the artfulness of the book and not the degree to which the religious beliefs of the the reader where offended.
Have you been able to give voice to your dislike of the text beyond the mere "didn't like it" ?
I have four cats as well. I've got two senior citizens (both are about 12 years old) and two younguns (they'll be two years old in September). I raised the two younger ones from the time they were three weeks old. I agree that kittens can be really destructive. Mine loved to climb the curtains.
Thanks for liking the pic! It came from Cute Overload, one of my favorite websites.
Actually, the cat sanctuary I work in is really good. It's in a private residence and 4000 square foot that houses 120 cats. There are 19 rooms in all. The cats are cageless, but some are confined to rooms because they get picked on by some of the other cats. The ones in the rooms have actual (human) beds, while the others that run around sleep in baskets or on changing tables, all with blankets. Many of our cats are senior citizens, so they are in a safe and secure place to spend the rest of their days.
