Hello Melodee J,
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.
Dear Melodee J,
It is good to see a reader like you who is interested in diverse stories. I am quite new to Shelfari so I'm reaching out to network with readers who may be interested in my debut novel. "To Whom Much Is Given - A Novel" is now available on Amazon. “To Whom Much Is Given – A Novel” is contemporary women’s fiction. The novel's main character is a successful New York corporate attorney of African American and Jamaican descent who is part of the modern-day "Talented Tenth." She desires more than the typical professional fast track but on the road to success, she quickly learns loved-ones can become collateral damage.
For your consideration, you can also view the cinematic book trailer featuring Lawrence Saint-Victor, who appears on CBS Daytime’s “The Bold and The Beautiful,” Toni Robison-May and John J. Thomassen on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-eRM2CpqPHs.
Thanks for your time and I hope you stop by my page.
Hey Melodie! It's been a looong time since I checked into The Fari. Been too busy to read as I usually do. Just wanted to drop in and say hello. I was wondering what you have been reading lately that really had you caught up? I need a good page turner right about now. Okay lady...talk to you soon.
I am almost done it has held my attention, it's a typical story husband and wife are well to do they both snort cocaine and sometimes vicodine, his brother got money from him now he is on his death bed so he forgive him. You know that type of thing. Because we read so much it's hard to WOW us. I use to read whatever but now I am careful about what I allow in, I look at the books that you read I see that you are the same way. Now I do have a guilty read that I do every so often but I don't post those. You know she has the new book coming out and it's from the Curtis Black Series.
I'm looking for book lovers to check out my new eBook titled: Bitter With The Sweet. It's family drama about three sisters dealing with their ailing mother that ask them to do the "unthinkable". This eBook is available for Kindle, Nook and at www.smashwords.com. Happy Reading!!! For more information check out: www.dyphillips.com.
