Hello Judy, join us at Good Reads Café
This is a Readers’ and Writers’ group. Open discussions, debates, critiques and self-promotions…
All book genres are welcome. If you like thrillers, I write suspense, crime, mystery.
We're running a Kindle books promo, join us in the top Discussion, Amazon Book Sales for Authors.
Sorry I don't. I have Snow Angles, Sara's Song and Silver Bells. I recycle the books as soon as I read them. I give them to friends, the library or donate them to the hospital. I am trying to be more faithful in keeping up with Shelfari. If you see something I am reading that you want, let me know.
Thanks for joining the Mystery & Suspense group! Tell us something about you in the Introduce Yourself discussion topic and who are some of your favorite authors in this genre.
Our current books for group discussion are Kisscut by Karin Slaughter and Now You See Me by S. J. Bolton. Our next books for group discussion are Void Moon by Michael Connelly and 1rst to Die by James Patterson. Discussion topics will be posted on August 22.
Lastly, we feature authors each week, proving background info along with their bibliographies. Be sure to check out the author of the week recommendations section and add any you'd like to see included. Here's the link: http://www.shelfari.com/groups/84079/discussions/408111/Author-of-the-Week-Recommendations
My favorite is "The Client" and the movie was just as good as the book. "A Time to Kill" is good, too. There was one book I didn't like and found boring but I can't remember it now--been on the PC too long tonight. :) It might have been "The Firm' that I found a little dry. I haven't yet read, "The Pelican's Brief'.
Hi Judy! Yes of course I remember you! I wondered what ever happened to you.
We have not been to our cabin in the Adirondacks for over a year! We are going to sell it eventually, but we have to do some work on it first.
We just don't really have time to go up there anymore :-(
It was good hearing from you.
Lets not loose touch.
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.
