Hello Lynda Patriarche,
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.
If you like Koontz, Cussler, Crichton, Flynn...you might like Catch.
A woman abducted by a mysterious organization. A troubled man trying to outrun his past. A power so terrible it possesses the ability to rip away the very fabric of the universe itself...
I hope you'll check it out : ))
Available on Amazon for 0.99c for Kindle (or just check out my profile for more info)

I run a blog called Number One Novels (numberonenovels.blogspot.com) to spread the word about debut authors. On the blog I interview debut authors and run contests to give away their new novels. Running Monday, June 27 through Sunday, July 3, Number One Novels is interviewing Nan Rossiter about her debut novel, The Gin & Chowder Club (with a contest for a chance to win two copies of the novel). If you liked J. Courtney Sullivan’s Maine, you might enjoy Rossiter’s debut novel. I'm trying to find new avenues for garnering more attention for authors launching their career. If you're interested in debut authors of genre fiction, I’d love to become your friend.
This is an awesome site! Now I can creep on you and steal all your wonderful book ideas. I get very bad choosing a book anxiety so I think this should help. HAHA Keep me posted on new reads! I saw you read 10,000 white women, did you like it? I couldn't put it down. Love and miss you!
