Hey, I'm just messaging around to introduce myself as the author of "Kyle vs Leila - Battle for the Cyberdomes" in the hope that people will shelve it! I've made the first half available free on smashwords for anyone who's interested as its got some decent reviews so far. Or there's the first chapter linked on here. Below that is a vid of me on YouTube ... just for fun :o)
I hope you are well.
I notice from your reviews that you enjoyed the Hunger Games. I have to agree with you - it's a great book!
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.
Very easy to read and you are into it from the start.
Best thing I’ve read since hunger games.
Brilliant must read book.
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 read Dreams of Joy after finishing Shanghai Girls. Our book club here is part of the larger Solivita Book Circle and the book circle Skyped Lisa See into an event so we could talk with her. She was very nice, interesting to listen to and very well versed on Chinese culture. It was a great event, and sooner or later, I will read more of her books.
I'll be interested to see what you think of A Change in Altitude. I've read so many Shreve books, but somehow I missed this one. I may take a look at it after I finish Two Rivers for book club and the Rona Jaffe book The Road Taken that I'm also reading. I'm also listening to A Breath of Snow and Ashes. So much to read...so little time ;o)
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Pie Society is already on my list of audio books. I also tried to check it out of the library for our grand tour, but it wasn't available. Of course, the offerings at Poicniana's mini library are slim some days, but they will always order something from the main library for you.
I agree that if we didn't have race, we would find something else divisive to cling to. I am just holding out for the time when middle-aged women with big hips get to feel superior!
I agree that the attitudes have gone underground. I think that anyone that thinks we are in a post-racial era is not truly in touch with what is happening in this country. There are a lot of ways to subjugate people other than making them use their own toilets. Aside from the subject matter of this book, I loved the langauage and the subtle humor of the maids. I listened to this on Audible and the readers were terriffic! I'm hoping it won't be forever before Stockett comes out with another book.
On another subject, we will be in Detroit the week of the 19th. Jackie and I were talking about dinner on the 20th and she said you may want to drive down. Let me know, and if you're bringing John or not so we can include/leave out the husbands.
