Hello Angela S, 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. http://www.independentauthornetwork.com/a-j-gallant.html
Hey! I’m the author of Cyberfreak Debt which is doing well on amazon (linked below). Please shelve it or check out my author reading on youtube (also linked) but don’t laugh! Feel free to message me any time! Stu-man :-) ... @wonderboywriter on twitterhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ayWSkz0RiBshttp://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B008RM8BSG
Hey Angela! Let me know what you think of The King's Concubine once you finish. I got in the mail last week :-)
It was the first thing I put on my list for my husband to get me. If it's not under the tree I will use the gift cards I'm sure to get to purchase it right away. It looks wonderful, doesn't it?
Are you on Twitter? What's your user name? I'll follow you :-)
Let me know how The De Lacy inheritance goes. I need to know if it's one I should be reading or not :-) How do you know the author? Is she on Shelfari?
It only took me a few hours, but I've finished with Garden Spells. I thought it was great. Now I'm not sure which of Allen's works I like best :-) If only I could decide what to read next...
Hi. Yes, I'm just starting Garden Spells. I'm not much of a contemporary fiction reader either, but I do enjoy Addison Allen's books. Have you read any of her others?
Thanks for joining Angela - hope you enjoy it. Feel free to jump in any of the discussions.
Hi,It looks like we have a few books in common and we both like historicals. If you're interested, stop by and check out my Historical Romances group. Among other things I have a quizzes post and an "Upcoming Releases" post.http://www.shelfari.com/groups/74957/about
Hi Angela,Thanks for finding me! I'm not on here very often. I had actually forgotten about it. Maybe if I had more friends on here to remind me about it...I need to be prodded to spend more time reading. I'm too often on the computer or watching something on tv. I need to come back and update this soon.
Yes, Sophie's Secret is also great (it's called The Winter Sea here - I can't figure out why publishers like to change the name of novels depending on which side of the Atlantic you live on). I also recommend The Shadowy Horses, which I enjoyed just as much as Marianna. I have her other novels sitting on my shelf, but haven't yet read them.
I see you are now reading Mariana. Please let me know what you think once you finish. It is one of my all-time favourite novels! I hope you enjoy it, too.
Hi Angela. I see you are currently reading Jude Morgan's A Taste of Sorrow. I just ordered the book, as I think it sounds very interesting, so I would be curious to know what you think when you finish.
Difficult choice - I liked both in different ways. If you've seen the movie then it will be hard not to think of Nicholson as McMurphy. The story is told from Chief's perspective. Both are rewarding experiences.Richardwww.richardjayparker.com
Hi Angela. I too am glad to have found shelfari and to see you here. So far I'm having a blast interacting with others about my favorite books and books I would love to read. I think the interface is quite pleasing to look at and it also has widgets for my blog! Amazing!
Love your avatar! lol
I won't notice if it's different - for I haven't really seen the movie version. :P And this reminds me I should update my shelf. :)
