I hope you are well.
I see from your review how much you enjoyed 'Before I go to Sleep' by S.J Watson. It's a great debut novel.
I’m hoping to find readers like you who appreciate original fiction and might be interested in trying out my novel "The DEAD LOOP". It is a unique psychological mystery about a man that seemingly ‘dies’ every single day.
So far Shelfari readers I have tempted to try it say:
‘very difficult to put down’.
‘One of the most unique and original story plots that I have read in quite a long time’.
‘Best thing I’ve read since hunger games...’
If I am able to tempt you to look it up, ‘the Dead Loop’ is available at very low cost on Kindle, Nook, Kobo, Apple etc. The first 20% can also be downloaded to try at Smashwords.com.
If it intrigues you at all and you want to check it out, I would very much appreciate your feedback.
Very best wishes,
Complete Trilogy edition
Hello Janene G,
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've started The Book Thief and The Lovely Bones, but I haven't been able to stick them out. I noticed you rated them pretty high. Are they ones you have to stick with and it is worth it in the end? I'm also asking because we have very similar taste in books...
