Hello Terri B,
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.
Hi Terri !! So good to hear from you :-) Can't believe the summer is already half way over. We had such a late start, weather-wise. May was yucky and June wasn't much better. It finally started to get nice toward the end of June so we broke out the bikes and went on a few fun rides so far -- we plan to do as many as we can before the snow flies. Minneapolis is a gorgeous city, especially in the summer -- it's very bike friendly, too. We love to run & walk as well. Hope all is going well in your neck o' the woods. Thanks for saying "howdy"! talk to you soon :-)
Oh wonderful !! I would love to send you a complimentary copy -- would you mind sending me your mailing address? And then I can pop my book in the mail asap. I live in Minneapolis, Minnesota so I'm hoping you'll receive it some time next week. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org I must confess that when I read your note about your step-father, it made me tear up. Schizophrenia is such a devastating illness, not only for the person who is forced to live through it, but also for those who love them. My mom was such a beautiful spirit but was robbed of so much of her life because of it. Thank you so very much for getting back to me -- your kindness is greatly appreciated :-)
My name is T.H. Waters & I live in the city of Minneapolis, MN. I just recently published a book entitled "Ghellow Road" which is currently being offered for sale on the Amazon.com website. It is my Literary Diary that traces growing up in the shadow of schizophrenia. If interested, I'd be happy to send you a complimentary copy. All I ask in return is that you give me an honest, favorable review on the Amazon.com website if you feel that “Ghellow Road” is at least a 3 out of 5 stars worthy book. If you would prefer to read a sample before deciding, please visit my website: www.verefor.com. I can be reached at email@example.com. I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you so much for your time.
All my best--
