As a writer, I'm always interested in meeting new people, learning about new places because it expands my mind and often inspires new ideas. I'm sending you this note because you "love to read!" so you must be an interesting person.
If I may suggest, how about a wild ride through history, myth, legend and lore? You will learn secrets of Westminster Abbey and Stonehenge in a story inspired by an amazing real person.
My name is Otis Farmer, and I would like to invite you to take an exciting and enlightening journey in my new book, Merlyn And The Mortal's Curse, a fantasy novel where Merlyn is forced to travel to the present in order to save mankind. He must take a reluctant, modern lad back to pre-Camelot, where their action packed adventures take them around the world, through time and a dimensions.

Thank you for your valuable time and consideration! Looking forward to hearing from you soon.
HI! I was wondering if you ever got an email back from shelfari regarding the amazon link. I just emailed them as well about whether or not it's going to be mandatory to link accounts. Hopefully not. I see a lot of members are not pleased. If it comes to that I'm outa here! Let me know! Thanks!
Ben het helemaal met je eens, het boek lezen voor de film bekijken. Zeker bij The kite runner, wat een geweldig boek is dat.
Ik heb pas geleden Life of Pi van Yann Mantel gelezen, als je die nog niet hebt gelezen, ik vond het zeer de moeite waard.
Thanks for the note! "Twenties Girl" was SO good! I loved it! It's actually the only book of Sophia Kinsella I've read. I didn't read any of the shop-a-holic books. "Something Borrowed" by Emily Giffin was good. But if I remember correctly there is an order for that small series and I read it out of order. I think I would have enjoyed the books more if I would have known there was an order. Emily Giffin is a good read! I just noticed she has a new book out. Yes I am looking forward to reading "Reunion" by J.L. Penn. Sounds like a fun read. I love a good story! Thanks again for the note!

Glad you had a nice vacation! I have to confess that I have yet to visit Orlando. We are planning a visit with my daughter hopefully next year (or late this year).
I had the same reservations about Something Blue when I realized who the central character was but I was pleasantly surprised. I doubt Emily will even top Something Borrowed as her best work, but Something Blue was actually rather good. I also love Sundays at Tiffany's and It's About Your Husband. The latter is just a twinge rough in the beginning but it really picks up steam.
Glad you liked the teaser chapters! There are a few more available for reading at InkPop.com, as well as a short story I'm working on called The Cinderella Curse. If you like humor, you should hopefully like that one as the style is true to my roots (rather irreverent sarcastic type humor). It's a fractured fairy tale of sorts and shaping up nicely I think. I expect to have that one done in short order. I may be adding more similar shorts to my portfolio - all on a recommendation in another author's blog. Apparently, one key to finding some success in writing is to inundate the market with your name. He recommends very cheap (like $0.99 on Kindle) short stories galore with a mix of novels. I'm attempting to take his advice as inspiration hits.
Anyhoo, lovely to hear from you and hope you have a great weekend as well! We're currently being snowed on yet again!
Geen dank. Lekker zeg, vakantie! Hoop dat je genoten hebt. Reizen is naast lezen, absoluut een van mijn hobby's ;-).
Als je ooit nog verder gaat in de boeken van Stieg Larsson, succes en anders er is nog zoveel te lezen (heerlijk!) dus er is altijd wel een goed boek te vinden.
No thanks necessary! It's interesting to meet like-minded people out here in cyberland. Hope you had a great vacation! When you live in Bonaire, I can't imagine where you go for vacation -- some place snowy perhaps?
"Something Borrowed" is the first in a series of only two. "Something Blue" is the follow up -- good, but not as good. "Love the One You're With" was also good but not fantastic like "Something Borrowed" is. I've not read "Baby Proof," but ChickLitClub.com gave it only 5/10 - that's pretty atrocious for such a bestselling author. Not sure whether I'll read that one or not (have to admit I'm a little curious). It thrills me to no end to have been rated above an Emily Giffin novel, LOL! She's got another one out now I think, or maybe it's coming out soon - no clue whether that one is a sequel or not.
The second book is coming along as well as it can, considering I'm spending so much time promoting Reunion right now. It's a tough balancing act. I'm probably 15% or so through what I'm tentatively calling Ms. Watson, I Presume. The chapters posted on my site are the first cut. I may post some more since chapters 1-6 are done - haven't decided yet. Hope you enjoy it, but the story of course doesn't really kick in until the initial set ups and introductions are made.
As for finding a publisher ... The optomistic answer is that I'm as close as I've ever been right now. The realistic answer is no. I finally had an agent request more than my initial query so I'm hopeful that dialogue will continue, but who knows. It is frustrating beyond belief.
Thanks for reading my blog! Getting a readership there is one of the many things I need to work on but it's so hard to find the time to write there as well. And yes, Bradley Cooper is quite yummilicious! ;) But I'm no doubt daydreaming on a movie deal. LOL
Happy reading and TTYL!
