HAIKU HORIZONS #43 – LINK

Leave a comment

This week’s prompt from the Haiku Horizon site is “LINK” and here are my three Haiku response endeavors:
[ https://haikuhorizons.wordpress.com ]

Two people get wed
Uniting two families
Adds links to the past.

The necklace link broke
Scattering the pearls on floor
Who’ll restring them now.

This prompt word is hard
Making it hard to create
Five seven five here

PLEASE leave your feedback.

THE CHANGEOVER IS NOW COMPLETE

TO ALL MY “SISTERS” and “BROTHERS” and LOVERS OF CHRISTIAN BOOKS

My desire to publish my first two debut Christian books has finally occurred, although I’d have loved for them to have been ready in time for Christmas. Perhaps the Lord has caused the delay so they would become available in time for my 69th birthday on Wednesday, possibly in return for all the nonfiction Christian books, I’ve been reading/reviewing that have glorified His words and His name for the past 18 months.

The two books are:

“It Had Only Been a Game”
A YA/NA Christian romance.

“Christian Short Stories & Essays”
An anthology of 50 Christian Short Stories and Essays, with each one getting written around a prompt word. The last item in the book is my testimony about the Lord guiding/supporting me as I endeavored to write these two books.

Both books are available as a KINDLE for $2.99 or can read for FREE as a KU [KINDLE Unlimited] download.

I would love for everyone to check out my two new endeavors as an author of Christian books, and hopefully, purchase a copy for yourselves or to give as a gift. I would love to write more or these books; however, I’ve still got two romance manuscripts that I been working for almost two years that I’d like to complete first.

One of my yet unfulfilled desires is to become a New York Times Best Selling author, perhaps one of these two books will make it happen.

As we begin another year, I want to increase the amount of nonfiction Christian books I’ll be reading/reviewing. Last year, 118 of the 263 [about 45%] I had reviewed had been for these books. And with the first week of the new year already passed, I see myself being able to reach this goal since 6 of the 9 [66.67%] of the books I’ve done so far all belong to this genre.

In regards to my two debut Christian endeavors, I’ve made unbelievable progress, primarily since I’ve obtained permission from the NKJV [New King James Version] publisher to use verses from their bible and what I need to do for it in my books. As soon as I got their permission, I immediately made sure all of the verses I’d used for my collection of 40 Christian short stories and essays all came from their NKJV bible. I then followed this by completing the copyright, bio, listing of my books and endeavors and the acknowledgment pages. All that is left is for me to publish the book on KINDLE, which I’m holding off due to progress I’m making with my debut YA/NA Christian romance, “It Had Only Been a Game.”

Thanks to a dream I recently had, I came to the realization I only need one more chapter to finish writing the book, which I’m doing tonight [1/9/20]. Luckily, I’ve already checked the editing of the book’s entire manuscript using Grammarly, which has gotten turned on as I continue to write. With the completion of the writing of this book, Friday, I can add the same introductory pages I had in my first book [with necessary revisions for this book], and then create the cover page for the book.

With all this happening, I’ll be able to witness the fulfillment of my dream of having both books becoming available to celebrate my birthday on Wednesday, January 15th. While I’m disappointed that I couldn’t have completed my two books in time for the holidays, perhaps this is the way and when the Lord had planned for me to release my two debut Christian books.

If anyone knows of a Christian nonfiction book with less than ten reviews and available as an Amazon KU or for free, please advise me. Also, if anyone is interested in interviewing for their website or blog, please send me a message through my FaceBook account.

As we approach the end of another year, I’d like to extend my wishes to all of my followers for a BLESSED, HEALTHY, and PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR.

To begin with, I feel a little disappointed that I couldn’t have my two debut Christian books ready for publication in time for Christmas. Perhaps the Lord didn’t have it in His plans for my writing career to have them completed at this time. I’m now aiming to have them published as a 69th birthday present to myself in about three weeks.

My fascination and enthrallment in reading/reviewing nonfiction Christian books continue as 45% of the 260+ books I’ve done this year have been for these books. I believe this serves as an indication of the kind of person I am as one reads my, at times in-depth and honest reviews. Quite a few of these books are to be read by Christian women, especially the ones that are devotional.

I still love to read True Crime books, which is now somewhat enhanced by my adoration of the Christian books I love to read/review. I’ve got to question what could have driven children to commit murders that are on par of any adult. I’ve got to wonder what could have inspired women to murder the child[ren] they’ve given birth to, and even more profound has been the revelation that men of faith could ever be men of murder [usually of their wives].

I, therefore, would love for everyone to check the reviews I’ve written on Amazon.com at
https://tinyurl.com/y83l8h4m,
that I hope you’re going to appreciate reading.

While my erotic side has become more/less invisible for the past several weeks, I like everyone to know she has re-edited her debut erotic LGBTQ/BDSM novella and is on the verge of completing her second erotic novella by the of January if not sooner.

In the past two weeks I’ve completed writing my anthology of “Christian Short Stories and Essays” by writing a personal testimony of the Lord’s involvement of taking me from the reading/reviewing of Christian books as merely one of the genres I deal with to make it a mainstay of the books I’m doing now at around 45%,

This conversion in the books I love to read/review ultimately brought me to the writing of my debut YA/NA Christian romance novella, while forsaking the writing of my two secular romance endeavors, not to mention the endeavors I write, heaven forbid, under my erotic pen name; which then brought me to writing a compendium of the 40 items I’ve mentioned at the beginning of my post today.

As I wrote in the last item mentioned above, I stated that

“…Giving testimony is the ZENITH of a person’s faith in the Lord. While the willingness to give testimony is a marvelous event in a believer’s life, the value of the testimony grows intensively only if it’s shared publicly with others…”

Thanksgiving Day threw my hopeful writing schedule awry and I didn’t do any writing like I had planned. I’ve just got over 92% of my debut Christian romance already completed, and now hopefully with the Lord’s guidance in my writing this endeavor, I’ll be able to time that elusive final period in the manuscript by the end of tomorrow, Saturday, November 30th. After this, I’ll then start an almost around-the-clock editing process using a program other than what my Microsoft Word program provides.

And in thanking His guidance with all that I do in regards to the Christian faith, I’d love for everyone reading this post to consider what is written in PSALM 103:22 [NKJV]

“Bless the LORD, all His works, In all places of His dominion. Bless the LORD, O my soul!”

AMEN !!! 😊😊😊

STATUS REPORT #151 – AND MY FIRST PUBLIC TESTIMONY REGARDING THE LORD

Leave a comment

Once again, it’s been a month since my last status report, but there has been nothing that I really felt important enough for me to write out. However, recently I’ve felt the urge to finish writing my first two Christian endeavors ahead of all my other 3 endeavors.

I still have a predominance in reading/reviewing Christian books with about 44% of the 237 books I’ve done so far belonging to this genre; and since my last report of the 22 books I’ve reviewed, over 40%, have been for Christian books. In writing my reviews for these books, I always endeavor to write ones which engage potential readers in knowing how I feel about what I’ve read. An example of this can be found in a book I’ve reviewed a few days ago, William Dika’s, “Who Am I in Christ: 59 Truths to Build Your Identity in Christ”

https://www.amazon.com/review/R15ESZ5ZJ5K94X

However, more importantly, has been the review I wrote for Angie Dent’s “Covenant Keeper 2: Stories of God’s Promises to Every Believer” where one of the short stories resonated so much with me that I felt compelled to share my own testimony in regards what happened to me because of the Lord.

https://www.amazon.com/review/R2CYJGG5MN3A5H

I would love for everyone to enjoy reading these two reviews, and the rest of my reviews so they can find their next book, especially Christian book to read. To find all of my reviews, simply click on one of the above links and then click on my name at the review itself.

With my inclusion of scripture in most of the reviews I write for a Christian book, individuals have been repeatedly asking me in personal messages which Christian faith is mine. Each time I get asked I simply have to tell them that an individual’s faith, including mine, is a personal and private matter. I tell them it’s far more important to look at how an individual portrays themselves to be and what they’re saying publicly. I tell them just read my review for a Christian to see where I’m coming from and the kind of person I am, spiritually. AMEN

If anyone would like to interview me regarding the reviews I write or the two Christian books I’m in the process of writing please feel free to contact me.

The first of my debut Christian endeavors is a collection of 40 Flash Fictions, Short Stories, and Essays involving the Christian faith, written around a prompt word – I only need to write one more item. The second is a YA Christian romance novella, entitled “It Had All Been a Game” – this story is now about 88%, with another 4,500 words still anticipated to be written before I can type that elusive final period in the manuscript.

I know. I know. It’s been almost a month since my last post and even more since my last Status Report. To begin with, since both my dear OH and myself are senior citizens, we both had to deal with family and personal medical issues [nothing at all serious]; but they did take a few hours on several days to get everything handled.

I’ve hit another milestone in regards to my reviewing of books since my last post – I’ve hit 200 books and have updated my Good Reads Reading Challenge target, by increasing it to 250 books by the end of the year. I’m also fast approaching my having read 100 Christian books so far this year, my current percentage in books for this genre now stands at about 45%, and I can definitely see myself having read/reviewed 100 Christian books with the next 10 days. If anyone is interested in reading my reviews for Christian books or any other genre, here is the direct link to my Amazon profile:

I hope you’ll enjoy reading what I’ve written for my reviews, especially the reviews I’ve written for Christian books most of which include scripture.

I had started to post copies of each of the reviews I write. But then, I came to the realization that this blog would have slowly been turned into merely the Robin Leigh Morgan Book Review site since I wouldn’t essentially have any variety to my posts besides my reviews. [No one had taken my offer to interview authors on this blog.]

Since I’m approaching reading/reviewing my 100th Christian book, I figure it might be a good time to start adding a new feature from time to time to this blog which would spotlight one of the Christians authors whose book[s] I’ve read/reviewed. I hope you, as one of my blog followers will enjoy having this new feature on my blog.

As far as my writing endeavors are concerned my adult Contemporary romance, “His Darkest Secret” is almost 90% completed, and my YA Urban Fantasy, “The Secret of the Well” is almost 70% completed [this book is also a stand-alone sequel to my debut YA romance novel, “I Kissed a Ghost.”

As I’ve mentioned previously, with all of the Christian books I’m reading/reviewing, I’ve decided to write 2 Christian books of my own. The first is a YA Christian romance novella entitled, “It Had All Been a Game” and the second is “Christian Short Stories and Essays” a collection of 50 items.

Hopefully, if everything goes as planned, I’ll have all these writing endeavors published by the end of November. In the meantime, why not check out all of my books on Amazon.

If anyone would like to interview me as an author, as a book review or both for their blog/website just send a message to my FaceBook account. Just enter my full name to start the interview process – THANKS]

So, in closing my dear followers have a BLESSED WEEKEND for your families !!! 😊 😊 😊

Don’t be shy I would love hearing from you, so please leave a comment.
