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.
Thanks, you have some great books on your shelf too! I see you just finished reading the Baumgartner series by Selena Kitt. I really liked this series too, but I gave the 2nd book 3 stars only because my copy/ebook was full of grammar and spelling errors which pissed me off... LOL. I think I may have to reconsider my rating... it really was a good book. Henry's ebook comes out next month.
Great profile pic!
Thanks! No plans just yet. I decided I'm not going to worry about any of that for atleast another couple of months. I want to enjoy the rest of my summer and see family before I get cracking on the wedding details. We can't agree on a date. I have one picked out and his family said no, so I'm letting myself cool off and forget all that stuff until I have to LOL.
Truly it was just ok. I did finish them all because once I start a series I have to read them all. I am OCD that way. It was one for me that you could put down and not feel like you have missed anything. If you have something else to read I would. Is there anything you need? Maybe I have it. I am on the Maximum Ride series by James Patterson right now book 3. These are pretty good but they are written for young kids. If you need a break from Paranormal read The Help by Kathryn Stockett. I really liked that one.
Hey GZ, I'm looking at your shelf and I'm seeing Rachel Vincents Shifters series that I'm wanting to read and don't have any of the books as well as The Vampire Academy books. I've read the first but not any further as the waiting list is so long at the library. The Georgina Kincaid books are another series I haven't read yet and want to. Since you offered I'd thought I'd let you know a few of what you have on your shelves that I haven't yet read. So it's free to send some to me? Just let me know, if you change your mind I won't be offended! I can't wait to read something on my iPhone! Thanks!
