Saw your question in the 12X12 group. Just open a discussion topic in the group (name it Joand2girls 12X12 Plan). In the description section of the topic, enter your list of categories, just like you did for this year. Once you save it, open the topic and copy the URL. Then go back to the Where's My Thread topic and edit your reply to add the link by pasting it.
If you're unclear about any of this, let me know.
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 loved The Outlander series, although I have not finished it. I read it straight for a year about 3 years ago and can't seem to get myself to pick it back up and continue it. I have read some of the Woman of the other World series, by Harrison I like them. Lately I have really been into Charles Bukowski, read all his Henry Chinaski novels, I think I am just a little burned out on the paranormal but own a lot of them!
What are they? Yes she needs to finish the Gentry series but not sure she has any intentions of doing so, I am liking affliction but am not finished although it feels like it is full of descriptions of people. I am always open to suggestions though thanks!
I clicked the button for readers like me and found you, just wanted to tell you I did the same thing after reading the Twilight series, but haven't read as many series as you. I see you are reading Affliction and I just started it a day ago, Have you read Hamilton's Merry Gentry series? I loved it even more than the Anita Blake, but the downside is she didn't finish it and not sure she intends to which is a bummer.
Hello Joand2girls, I read Amazon has you as a member “with” Steven James “Pawn” on their shelf, so I’d like to recommend another Christian Suspense / Thriller, "The Diaries of Pontius Pilate.” It draws upon the author’s military background and has great reviews. “Diaries” is not a vanity or self-pub book, but is published by Trestle Press, a small independent press outside of Philadelphia under its imprint, Helping Hands Press, that gave a Christian novel a chance. Full disclosure - I wrote it and hope you’ll give it a chance.
Best wishes, Joe Lewis www.josephmaxlewis.com
Here's the link for the book discussion on Betrayal in Death if you're interested.
It is in the Western Romance group. Here is the link:
Me too and I couldn't be happier about it, but now I own hundreds of books and have no idea which series to start next I have a hard time just staying ahead of all the series I read regularly (probably about 40 of them). Guess that's not a bad problem to have:)
Hello, we may have more books in common than I have seen on anyone else's shelf! Great shelf - lol - gave me a few ideas - as if I need more. I started the Paranormal Romance/Urban Fantasy with the "highly recommended" (by my daughter 14 at the time) Twilight Series and have been devouring and hooked ever since.
There's a spoiler discussion for it in the Urban Fantasy group when you've finished :)
