Hi, Ellen! I'm planning to do share a shelf again in 2014 and wanted to go with your shelf. I've picked out a few options (though I still need to check my library for them!), and had hoped you could also make some alternate recommendations.
Here is the link to my challenges:
Hello Ellen R,
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.
A new group has been launched, Ellen ~ we are looking
forward to your input!

I see how much you enjoyed ‘The Time Travellers Wife'. It's definitely a great book with an interesting premise and very well written.
I’m searching for readers like you who appreciate original fiction and might be interested in trying out my novel "The DEAD LOOP". It is a psychological thriller mystery about a man that dies every single day but has no idea why.
Shelfari readers say:
It is a book I found very difficult to put down...
One of the most unique and original story plots that I have read in quite a long time.
Best thing I’ve read since hunger games...
The book on Kindle is very low cost. It is also available on most formats such as Nook, Kobo and Apple.
If it intrigues you at all and you want to check it out, I would very much appreciate any feedback.
Very best wishes,
Complete Trilogy edition
I just saw your note about my kitties! Thanks for the comments. I put it in the quilt show but the competition was too tough I guess! My DH loves it and he hates seeing it off of our wall. I showed it to my quilt chapter today and got lots of nice comments. Plus I got wonderful feedback from the judges! I'lll have to post my Seminole Quilt next :-) It's being raffled for the Lake County Library's BookFest coming up in a couple of months.
