Rain from the sky falls

Evaporate it goes back

Cycle is endless

 

Sports and rain combine

In baseball game gets rained out

Football continues

 

No rain causes drought

Too much rain comes making floods

Need happy midpoint

Leave a comment

This week’s prompt from the Haiku Horizon site is “DESIGN” and here are my three Haiku response endeavors:  

[ https://haikuhorizons.wordpress.com ]

Start with a design

Make some changes and then more

Finished product great

 

An idea is born

Many changes then follow

New design now dead

 

Design new wealth path

Riches are now plentiful

Everyone’s equal

BOOK REVIEW # 2017-013 – I LOVED YOU IN PARIS

Leave a comment

What happens when a romance author who’s noted for writing stories set in the city of love itself, Paris; all of a sudden finds herself a character in a real life situation where her own loss of a marriage has taken place. Naturally she’s as overwhelmed as any of her character could ever be when they wind up losing their HEA, and even more so.

 

We’ve all read stories which have been fraught with forbidden love, only to find there’s been quite a bit of infidelity lurking somewhere in the background which ultimately has led to demise of a what had been a wonderful relationship culminating in divorce. And we know the only thing the female protagonist can do is to hopefully find a new HEA to be part of her life once again.

Ms. Sobanet wastes no time in communicating this broad range of undeniable raw emotions as she exposes the truth regarding her own life, making sure her readers get the impassioned journey she has experienced in her life, a roller coaster journey consisting of love, loss and ultimately a return to hope for a HEA.

But instead of having written this memoir using the typical prose format, the author has skillfully written a chronological progression of this traumatic period in her life through poetry. If done right, and the author has succeeded in doing just that; poetry can paint a vivid and emotional laden portrayal of an experience, in which the reader to left to do their own imagining of what has taken.

For having given her readers a unique reading experience about this devastating period of her life, how can I not give Ms. Sonabet’s endeavor here the 5 STARS in deserves.

Ark built by Noah.

Animals came by the twos

Except unicorns

 

Emotions ran high

Everyone made flood of tears

Not a dry eye seen

 

A big storm quickly

Dams couldn’t hold rain water

Flooded land below

BOOK REVIEW # 2017-009 – RED HOTS: A VALENTINE ANTHOLOGY

Leave a comment

The countdown has begun for the most important day for romance in any woman’s life. Are you ready for it?

If you are or if you’re not what better way can there be other than fantasizing about being in the shoes of the female protagonists in each of these 18 steamy, hot marvelous short stories covering a wide variety of genres. These stories are wonderful being read when you’re finally alone after having getting the kids off to school and your dear other half off to work. Just imagine yourself grabbing a mug of your favorite cup of Joe, and relax with your feet up in that comfortable recliner in the den or living room, listening to some romantic sweet music as you read one of these stories.

Anthologies are a wonderful way to enjoy a new story written by an author you’ve come to love, and new authors you haven’t discovered yet.

For having each of the authors helping us get ready for Valentine’s Day with their own unique style of writing how can I not give this collection 5 STARS.

Besides given the price of the KINDLE Edition [when it’s released on February 1, 2017] how can you go wrong. If you can’t wait the paperback edition is available now.

I had requested and have received an ARC mobi.file of this book and the above has been my honest opinion.

HAIKU HORIZONS WEEK # 1 – LATE

Leave a comment

This will be one of my new weekly posting entries where I will be writing about three Haikus to the prompt word emailed to me from the Haiku Horizon site   

[ https://haikuhorizons.wordpress.com ]

 

This week prompt is: “LATE”

 

Not to be on time

A shame for me it will be

When all others gone.

 

Early bird gets worm

Arrive late won’t work at all

Prizes gobbled up

 

Winter comes this year

Making season’s time askew

Will spring be on time

STATUS REPORT # 95 – 2016 YEAR END POST

Leave a comment

I can’t believe it’s been over a month since my last status report; but, here I go, doing it again by not posting the way I would like to; on a more regular basis. It’s the holiday season and you know how hectic that can be. But it’s New Year’s Eve and for the coming year I’m making a New Year’s Resolution to keep to some sort of a regular schedule in the kind of postings I do each week.

One of the things I would like to do interviewing authors, especially those who had to write in my genre of romance, hopefully once a week regarding their writing endeavors on both of my blog sites [BlogSpot.com and WordPress.com] provided I can find authors who are interested in being interviewed by me. So if you would care to be interviewed please let me know as it’s going to be on a first come/first served basis.

I looking at posting more marketing ideas some of which might only be useful to certain individuals, along with one/two new weekly items.

This year I’ve completed the 2016 Reading Challenge on GoodReads.com again. I’d set a goal of reading/reviewing 200 books and now at the year of this year I’ve read/reviewed 231 books. As a reminder I don’t accept requests for book reviews. I only read/review books I’ve won through giveaways for books I’m interested in reading, want to read on my own, and if I should receive free download of a book for having subscribed to a newsletter, etc., I read/reviewed them as well provided I’m interested in reading them. Being a Book Reviewer as you probably can tell has become quite a serious endeavor for my 2nd second career since retiring back in the middle of February 2010, and is now doing better than my desire to become a bestselling romance author. Since making my decision to be become a Book Reviewer back in August 2014 I’ve reviewed 461 books on Amazon, GoodReads and LibraryThing. My goal for 2017 will once again be 200 books, and as soon as GoodReads posts their challenge I accept it.

So far I didn’t win one of the two writing contests I’ve entered and I’m still waiting to hear from the second one.

In regards to my writing endeavors I’ve got three WIPs I’m set on completing before July 2017: an adult Contemporary romance novella entitled “His Darkest Secret,” a MG/YA Urban Fantasy novella entitled “The Secret of the Well,” and an GLBT Erotic Shape-Shifting novella entitled “The Transformation.”

I also in the midst of deciding whether I should go with a reediting of my debut romance novel, a MG/YA Paranormal entitled “I Kissed a Ghost” which if I do will result in a good period of time for the book being not available in either the paperback or KINDLE version.

I would love to read your comments so I know what you think or how you feel about my posts and activities; so don’t be shy or bashful.

Lastly, I want to wish all of my followers on this blog and your families a Very Happy and Prosperous New Year.

O X O X O X
