Let me paint a picture with words:
You are in a forest with the sounds of a flowing brook nearby. A light breeze brings in the scent of pine trees and honeysuckles. You look up and hear a woodpecker on a nearby tree echoing through the woods and it brings a smile. Never having been on this forest path you follow a peculiar trail of roses that starts on the trail and leads off into the deeper woods. It’s a strange place for cultivated roses. One rose after another; they beckon you to follow them. The scent is light and wonderful, sparkles of purple float up from the flowers into the wind and drift off.
“What on Earth?” In a hole in an oak tree you find three small bottles of honey. A single drop of honey on your tongue is so sweet and delicious as if you haven’t eaten in a week.
“That is my honey.” The voice is a big one though not threatening.
You come face to face with the big red dragon. “Oh my.”
You have a nice shelf.
I hope you are reading lots of interesting books.
Dracula: Hearts of Stone is about a suicidal Dracula (he’s a good guy in this trilogy) that must snap out of his funk if he is to help save the world from evil vampires. He's created vampire sheriffs to battle the bad guys but they're being overrun. Piers Anthony (the author) is trying desperately to get him to jump into the battle. It's a tale of vampires, wizards and romance.
Knights of the Dragon is about a dragon that hires knights to help save Leeander and a young boy that the dragon cares about.
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.
Hope your well.
I see how much you enjoyed 'Before I fall' by Lauren Oliver. It's a great story alright.
I’m searching for someone like you who appreciates the more original and interesting fiction that might be interested in trying out my novel trilogy "The DEAD LOOP". It is easy to read, emotive and a unique psychological thriller mystery about a man that dies every single day but has no idea why.
My first Shelfari reader wrote on Amazon US: ‘one of the most unique and original story plots that I have read in quite a long time... There is just something about the idea and the writing combined that from the very first few pages grabs you by the hand and tugs you along to see what comes next and fires your imagination to begin trying to figure out why it is happening.’
Part 1 is free on Kindle every 18 days or so, or $1.25 normally.
Or it’s free all the time if you have Kindle Prime!
If it intrigues you at all and want to check it out, I would very much appreciate any feedback.
I promise you that you won’t regret it!
So... i can't figure out how i like the Infernal Device series by cassandra clare. I just finished clockwork prince. I just feel like the characters are way too similar to the mortal instruments characters.
And i just started Eragon...you liked that series, didn't you??
