Leave a comment

Man’s height is too short
To cheat he wear special shoes
Attract women now.

Sad, down in the dumps
Need a guy to come kiss me
Help lift my spirits.

Can’t reach an upper shelf
Hubby comes to lift me up
Dinner can be cooked.

Would love to hear your feedback.

GETTING BOOKS TO READ FOR FREE

Leave a comment

Those of you who know me know that besides being an author, know that I’m a rather voracious Book Reviewer who has a policy of not accepting requests to review a book:

http://mypennameonly.blogspot.com/2014/10/my-selection-process-for-reviewing-books.html

I currently have 834 reviews on Amazon with an Amazon Reviewer Ranking of 1,422.
If I don’t obtain a copy of a book personally, I get them through the myriad of giveaways authors have through their FaceBook, blog/web site, which is in additional to the old standard GoodReads and LibraryThing. Recently I’ve found my way to the giveaways Amazon has on its site, and they’ve proved to be a far more fruitful site in obtaining books.
If you go to the giveaway site you’ll find a vast variety of products being made available. As with all giveaways you find several kinds of giveaway for books. While some are a simple click the ENTER button, others require you to follow someone or view a video for 30 seconds before you’re permitted to hit the ENTER button.
As for the giveaways themselves, there are several varieties. Some are based on being entered in a drawing at the end of the giveaway, some are a random selection [every eligible entry has 1 in 100 chance to win, up to 2 winners], and some are based on being the nth request to enter the giveaway [every 50th eligible entry will win, up to 10 winners.] It is this type of giveaway which might cause you to want to check what’s happening with the book giveaways. I’m saying this because on more than one occasion I won a giveaway because of the following: [Every 2nd eligible entry will win, up to 50 winners.] As you can see only 100 individuals need to enter the giveaway before the giveaway has ended, which theoretically could be in about an hour considering all of the individuals looking at the giveaways.
As I’ve stated, I’ve found the Amazon giveaway site to fruitful in obtaining books, I’ve won 13 books so far in the past 14 days. Here’s the link to the Amazon giveaways:

I hope this information has proven to be useful

I’m happy to say I’m finally get back to being my old self. I’ve picked up on the speed I’m reading/reviewing the books on my TBReviewed pile. I’ve now got 834 reviews on Amazon from a view variety of genres. Hopefully I’ll be able to obtain the goal I’ve set for myself for this year’s GoodReads Reading Challenge of 250 books. I’m going to post a somewhat new source from which I’ve been getting free books to read. It’s the summertime, so if you’re looking for the next book for you or your child to read, why not check out all of my reviews at:

While my own writing endeavors are still on the back burner, my erotic side has finally added about 1,300 words to one of her current endeavors, which now hopefully can be completed by the end of July. Once it’s ready to be published I’ll need to check out the publishing process from KINDLE/KDP is like, create a simplified cover design on my own.

I would love for you to check out both of my two books which are FREE with KINDLE UNLIMITED, so download and peruse them as I can use the funds to help me self-publish my endeavors.

HAIKU HORIZONS #40 – FLAME

Leave a comment

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

The bright candle’s light.
Welcome sight cold winter’s night
Warm one’s fingertips.

She’s his only flame.
Death came and took her away.
Heart needs mending now.

Flame from campfire.
Toast marshmallows on long twig.
Childhood days recalled.

Would love to hear your feedback.

I seem to sleeping less during the day than I’d stated in my last update; at the same time I’m feel I’m still sleeping more than I believe I should be. On the other hand, I lost some weight and it’s staying off; but I’m still overweight and I want to lose about 15 lbs. by the end of July, with an additional 15 lbs. by the end of September; and definitely want to back to what I’d weighed 25 years ago by the middle of November when I said my I do to my dear OH.

While I’m still not reading/reviewing as many books as I did from January to April of this year; I’m still about 23 books ahead of schedule according to GoodReads in meeting my target of 250 books read/reviewed by the end of the year. You’re invited to check out my 280+ book reviews on Amazon here:

All of my writing endeavors, including that of my erotic pen name {Kathryn Heart] have screeched to a halt since the end of April. Hopefully, still dry spell will come to an end as I’m attempting to get back to writing one of my erotic pen name’s endeavors; and that I’ll be able to self-publish my first erotic novella by the end of July. This unfortunately kills my dream of receiving my first RWA milestone pin for having published 5 books in the romance genre by the end of this year.

Both of my two books are FREE with KINDLE UNLIMITED, so download and peruse them as I can use the funds to help me self-publish my endeavors.

My best wishes to you and yours, and THANKS for your kind support.

HAIKU HORIZON #39 – PLANT

Leave a comment

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

Mary’s quite contrary.
She does planting in the night.
She hates midday sun.

Dishonest cop plants drugs.
On the first available fool.
Arrest record’s high.

Gramps has work ethic.
Won’t leave plant till whistle blows.
Gramp’s totally deaf

I want to hear your feedback – THANKS

GETTING THE BOOKS I REVIEW

Leave a comment

For those of you who’ve been following my blog for some time know at times I can be quite a voracious reader and reviewer of books; for as it stands now I’ve got 820 reviews posted on Amazon.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/profile/A19QLCLVPLZH0B

One thing about my reviewing of books is that I DON’T ACCEPT any requests to do a review. The vast number of the books I review either come from the giveaways on GoodReads or LibraryThing, others come from the numerous of giveaways on the internet. I only enter a giveaway for a book if the book interests me, which leaves the rest of the books I’ve reviewed being bought by myself.

Although Amazon has been having giveaways on their site for quite a while, I’ve never bother checking them out, until about 10 days ago. Amazon’s giveaways are for a vast variety of items aside from books, but I’m only interested in those that are for books. But, regardless of what the item is, the giveaways are broken down into two categories; those which require that you either follow someone on Amazon or watch a brief video, and those which have no entry requirement; I always look for those without any requirements. The site address for these Amazon giveaways is http://www.Amazon.com/ga/giveaways .

The no entry requirement giveaways are then broken down into two formats; those in which all entries are place in a pool with the winners being selected at the end of the giveaway, and those which have instant winners. In the instant winner giveaways, an Amazon box appears, you tap on the box, the box opens, and you know whether you’ve won. The wonderful thing is that if the book is a KINDLE edition, the book is delivered immediately to your linked KINDLE address, [so make sure you’ve got one even if it’s the KINDLE App for PC like I have.]

Since I’ve been entering these Amazon giveaways for books, I already won four times, which is not too bad.
