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.
Hello eissme, from accross the pond in England.
I've only been to New York once, but loved every day of it!
I see from your review of 'Before I go to Sleep' by S.J Watson that you like a great supsense novel.
I’m searching for someone like you who appreciates the more original and interesting fiction that might be interested in trying out my novel trilogy "The DEAD LOOP". It is easy to read, emotive and a unique psychological thriller mystery about a man that dies every single day but has no idea why.
I’ve persuaded a random Shelfari reader to try it and they kindly wrote on Amazon US: ‘one of the most unique and original story plots that I have read in quite a long time. The description of the settings of the various lives/deaths of the main character are so well described and well written that I can vividly see them in my mind as I read along.’
Part 1 is free on Kindle every 18 days or so, or 99c normally.
Or it’s free all the time if you have Kindle Prime!
If it intrigues you at all and want to check it out, I would very much appreciate any feedback.

reality two years later,which involves a spiritual death experience.
This touching and terrifying true story is not only about me.It is also about... you.
