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.

STATUS REPORT # 145 / ACHIEVING A CHRISTIAN MILESTONE

Leave a comment

When I began to seriously read/review books on Amazon back in August of 2014, and shortly afterwards on other book review sites that I would eventually become a TOP CONTRIBUTOR for True Crime books on Amazon. Newer could I realize that I could ever reach being a TOP 1,000 Reviewer on Amazon, but I did around two months ago.

And today, I’ve reached yet another milestone in my second 2nd career of being a Book Reviewer. For today, June 1, 2019, I’ve posted my 100th review for a Christian book, since deciding to keep track on 9/1/18; which according to my figure is 100 out of the 226 reviews I’ve written during this time period. Today, also marks my post my 10th straight review for this genre, most of which have been books written for Christian women in mind. I feel this milestone is somewhat spectacular given I review a broad spectrum of books.

There’s a certain feeling of well-being I get in reviewing Christian books, a feeling which is somewhat difficult for me to explain. In reviewing a Christian book, I always endeavor to include at least one bit of scripture in each review I write, scripture which is in one way or other connected to the book I’m reviewing. To make sure I’m choosing the correct scripture, I feel as if I’m feeling guided through the internet to find what I’m searching, being guided by a higher authority making sure the message of review will be getting across to those reading my Christian book reviews.

Nine months is the same amount time it takes for a woman to give birth, and for her to sense the marvelous sensation. To be honest, I do have a marvelous sensation in achieving this milestone in sharing my honest opinions regarding these uplifting, faith-improving Christian books; so much so I’m ready to begin my journey in writing second hundred set of reviews for Christian books.

Given this, I would love for all of my Christian followers to check out my reviews. So here is the link to all of my reviews on Amazon, I hope you can find one which might be useful in your own lives, or to give as a gift to a Christian friend who benefit from the message a book might have to offer:

MEMORIAL DAY THOUGHTS

Leave a comment

SADNESS CAN BE CONTAGIOUS
LEslie sat in the den of her home crying.
The tears which came flowing over her cheeks weren’t ones of sadness. They were ones of the bittersweet remembrances she got as she read the LETTERS which her then future husband had sent her during his first assignment in the Middle East.
TEresa, Leslie’s daughter, sat by her mother’s side trying to console her, but to no avail.
Reluctantly, Leslie allowed her daughter to read the LETTERS herself.
Sadness became infectious because these LETTERS allowed Theresa to get to know the father she barely knew, as she now fell victim to the beautiful words in the LETTERS as well.

THE ULTIMATE ACT OF VALOR
The color PURPLE covers the entire spectrum of life itself, from the richest of people of royal blood who flaunt it in their clothes they wear, to the lowly peasant who’s mourning the death of a loved one.
The color PURPLE doesn’t make the person; it’s their acts which makes them the person. A person of royal blood who thinks himself better than those around him won’t receive the respect of those below his station, while a poor individual who regularly gives of himself will be treated in a manner normally reserved for a king.
The lack of selfishness must be maintained at all costs; and placed above everything else.
When it comes to war, an extremely small percentage of soldiers will wind up making the ultimate sacrifice and place their lives above everyone else’s, an act of pure valor which can only be symbolized by a PURPLE Heart.
Although small in size, the PURPLE Heart is worth more than a hundred times its weight in gold, merely because of what it represents.

MY CHRISTIAN BOOK REVIEWS

Leave a comment

Those of you who have followed my status reports know that since 9/1/2018 I’ve had a passion for reading Christian books, so much
so that I’d begun writing two books of my own for this genre.

In practically every review I write for a Christian book I’ve got a tendency to leave at least one scripture quote which I believe goes to what the book is trying to communicate to its readers. I love reading these books and I love sharing my feelings about them in my reviews. One thing that I’ve not done for a long, long time is to leave copies of my reviews here; which something I need to seriously consider starting to do again, but if I did, I fear I would start boring individuals with leaving so many reviews each month.

With 50% of my most recent 10 reviews being for Christian books, I’ve decided to post the links to these Christian reviews here at one time in the hopes that of those individuals of the Christian faith would read them, and then leave me some feedback here. Quite a few of these books, if not all of them are available for FREE as an Amazon KINDLE Unlimited download.

I would also love for everyone to check out the two books I’ve written. One of them is a sweet YA Paranormal romance novel entitled “I Kissed a Ghost” which would make a wonderful gift any young girl in your family or even yourself. The second book is geared more for adults and contains 100 Flash Fictions. Both books are available as a paperback or a KINDLE, and is also available to read free as an Amazon KINDLE Unlimited [KU]. Here’s is the link to my books on Amazon:

It’s time for a belated report of a milestone, and a confession regarding my writing endeavors.

There’s a lot of stuff going on with me aside from what I’ve spoken about in my updates, and it’s basically indirectly/directly connected to my having become enthralled with my reading/reviewing of Christian books [ 90 of the 214, about books I’ve written reviews for, have been for Christian books.] This erence had created a desire to write something which would fall into this genre; and I’d started to write two, a YA/NA Christian romance novella; and a book which would contain 40 item of Christian poetry, and 40 Christian Flash Fictions.

It had been shortly afterwards having reported I’ve almost finished writing the poetry portion of the book that I started to received “phantom” excusing of me of plagiarism, copyright infringement, etc in connection to what I’ve written, threatening lawsuits, etc. were soon to follow. I say phantom emails, because responding to any them would result in a message stating the email address didn’t exist. Still, there was a validating reference which made them seem to be realistic, which caused me to shut down my creative thought process, decimating my ability to do any sort of writing. With a recent return of these emails I decide to start researching the copyright issues which with what I had written, with no positive results, I’m getting someone to query the US Copyright Office for their official opinion regarding the status of what I’ve done, which will take up to 5 business days for a response. So, because of the manner in which this has been happening, this whole ruckus is probably due to some poor unfortunate jealous individual who gets their kicks out of doing this to other people. The interesting thing about all this is that, the individual behind all of this is not bothering my sinful, erotic side of me. Hopefully, once I’ve resolved any possible copyright issue, I hope to resume ALL of my writing endeavors by the beginning of next month.

During all of this recent ADO, I’ve reached another milestone regarding my book reviewing; because on 4/26/19 I had posted my 1,100 the review. So, if you’re looking for your next book to read, or to give as a gift for a child, why don’t you check out my reviews on Amazon at https://tinyurl.com/y83l8h4m

THANKS for being here and for your kind support.

This is going to be a brief update.

At long last my dear OH is back to normal, and the painful discomfort I’d been experiencing in my left knee has subsided and I only have to use my cane occasionally.

Hopefully with this, I’ll be able to resume the writing of the two endeavors I’m currently in the process of writing; my debut YA Christian romance novella, working title, “It Had All Been a Game”, and my erotic side’s endeavor, “Becoming the Bride’s Mother.” I’m also looking to increase my presence on the internet, so if there’s anyone interested in interviewing, please contact me privately via a DM to my Twitter account or a message on my FaceBook Account.

To ALL of my Christian followers, have a GLORIOUS, JOYFUL, and BLESSED EASTER WEEKEND with your families. !!! 😊 😊 😊

My chaotic schedule of driving my dear OH for doctor appointments is thankfully over, ending at the end of last month; but for the past two weeks I’ve been having excruciating pain in my left knee. It got so bad I got forced into using a rollator so I could walk from the garage we park our car in to our apartment.

Unfortunately, with the pain from my knee occupying my mind, I didn’t have any sort of mindset to do any additional writing on none of my current writing endeavors. My erotic LGBTQ novella, “Becoming the Bride’s Mother,” still has 16 chapters, 99 pages and about 18,800 words which makes it about 54% of what I estimate will be the novella’s length at completion. My sweet YA/NA Contemporary Second Chance [Christian] romance novella for which I’ve currently given it the working title of “It Had All Been a Game” current stats are 8 chapters, 50 pages and about 12,000 words longs is about 48% completed. My three other romance endeavors are currently on the back burner, and they consist of an adult Contemporary romance novel, a YA Urban Fantasy novella with a romantic back story, and a collection of Christian poetry and Flash Fiction [having 40 items of each].

The thing which is occupying the vast portion of my time is the reading/reviewing of books, trying to maintain my being a TOP 1,000 reviewer on Amazon. The percentage of Christian books I’ve done since September 1, 2018 has dropped down to 45% from being over 50%. So, if you’re looking a book for you or your child to read, you’re invited to check out the 1,088 I’ve posted on Amazon so far.

May you and your family have a JOYOUS, GLORIOUS, and BLESSED EASTER !!! 😊😊😊

I know. I know. I’ve been MIA [Missing in Action] Again. This time for almost 6 weeks.

As I stated last time my dear OH had been undergoing four weeks of almost daily medical treatment which had been occupying my time and my mind. The treatment has end and I’m the Dear is on the mend. However, I’ve been having my own medical issues, which thank goodness are relatively minor; the worse of which has been pain in my left knee which requires an Ace Knee Brace and a cane to help me ambulate the popping of 2 Extra-Strength Tylenol four times a day.

My progress in ALL of my writing endeavors has essentially been nil; with only 4 pages, 1 ½ chapters, 1,000 words being added to my YA Christian Contemporary romance novella and only 10 pages, 2 chapters, 1,900 words being added to my second erotic novella being written under erotic pen name. As for my collection of Christian Flash Fictions and Poetry, I’m still researching a possible issue I might have with it for which I haven’t had the time to make any progress under.

The only thing I’ve been really able to do is the reading/reviewing of books in order to keep my current status of being a TOP 1,000 reviewer on Amazon.com, Something I’ve been since February 11, 2019 when my Amazon Review Ranking was 980. Over 50% of the books I’ve been reading/reviewing are still Christian books. And if anyone is interested in finding their next book to read, or a book for a child in their family, you can check out any of my 1,065 reviews I’ve from a broad spectrum of genres, here:
