March should be ‘Book Month’

lol… I love March… not for the number to birthday parties my family celebrates (omg, there are so many birthdays… May must be a popular time to get frisky, lol… cause ten months later my family has babies popping out… March and June, those are our baby times :P)

unlike everyone else, I entered to world in October, and I love that time of year… so I don’t love March for its weather or spookiness… nope that all happens for me in Fall…

I don’t even love March for its beauty, cause let’s be honest… it is a little sad looking out in the Kentucky March landscapes… nope… I love March for all the new books I get to read… this year, four of my favorite authors have books coming out in March… I already received Patricia Brigg’s latest Alpha and Omega novel “Burn Bright”

burn bright

an excellent work, Patricia Briggs delivered another great read… her characters are live 3D, and so real they practically jump off the page… the love story between Charles and Anna caught and held my attention from the first paragraph in the short story that entered their relationship into her world… I love getting little insights into Charles’s past and his struggles and strength… I especially enjoy seeing the ways he secretly cared for and protected Mercy (from Brigg’s Mercy Thompson series)… and Anna is no light weight character… she is damaged but her will is iron… she shows that no matter the horror of her past, her love for Charles will never break, in fact her love lifts her to a place where she has the power to save the day, protect those she loves, and be the partner that Charles has always needed in his life…

I enjoyed every page of Burn Bright, and now I am waiting on my next March read, Christine Feehan’s Covert Game…

covert game

I have been re-reading the Ghostwalker series, even though I have read each novel a number of times already… but feeling apathetic about my own novels, I need something else to kill time until my favorite authors deliver their latest reads… I know that I will eventually get back to writing my own stories, the people in my head wont allow me to ignore them forever… but for now, I am impatiently waiting for Covert Game to come out on March 20th… as well as Shelly Laurenston’s ‘Hot and Badgered’ and Lynsay Sands’s ‘Twice Bitten’, which will be published on March 27th…

with all the books coming out this month, who wouldn’t love March

Happy Wordage

R&R… Fire Bound

fireI love Christine Feehan books, so this will be mostly a Rave with very little Ranting… lol… the only rant I have to offer is my sadness over the missing sisters in this novel… I love when they all come together to save the day… woo who

but Lissa and Casmir Prakenskii make a perfect couple… both a little damaged but yearning to have that one person in their life that will  be their everything… I loved how they fought together and pulled each other back from the edge of their fiery natures when betrayal and pain touched a button…

and the peek at Viktor (the last Prakenskii brother) was great… I cant wait to see how she redeems this bad boy in the next novel… plus, Feehan opened up the possibilities for many more novels to come after we hear Viktor’s story… woo who…

passion, betrayal, and a few crushing endings for the bad guys that have been plaguing our heroes… excellent read…

happy wordage, guys… tracey

top picks from fellow readers


The recent poll for our favorite authors turned out to be a lot of fun for me. Like one person commented, it was a great way to find new authors to add to my TBR list. Though one person commented that she preferred to go into a book blind, no outside commentary.

You never know what you are going to get when you open a book. No matter how many reviews you read, your opinion may differ from the likes and dislikes of others. I have found that even the authors that I have loved for years can come up with something that either wows me beyond belief, or makes me check the front cover … just to make sure I really am reading one of their books. Not to worry, my favs … one book that leaves me wanting will not turn me away, because I know that writing is a very personal journey. We put a piece of ourselves into each book, no matter if we are writing about battling Fae, horror fright with clowns, or cowboys that know how to show you a thing or two …
ummmmm … love those cowboys … and where are all my cowboys, I ask. Man am I gonna miss Lorelei James’s main cowboy series.

Right now, I love everything to do with writing and reading fantasy/paranormal romance. From the in your face lovin’ with some vamps and shifters thrown in … Laurell K Hamilton, Lora Leigh, Lynsay Sands, Christine Feehan … to the middle ground sexy fireworks, and even a few behind closed doors for the intimates … Karen Chance, Eileen Wilks, Patricia Briggs.

Hopefully, one day, I will be able to send out this poll and have someone pick my name out of the hat. My first book is soooo close to publication (no matter if I choose the traditional route, or the self pub way of thinking) that I can practically feel it in my hands. And I am scared to death … lol … Take a look at what I’m thinking of using for the back cover, and feel free to comment …

Back Cover-

It was a small bid for independence.

She never asked for Fae assassins, uncontrollable powers, or a confusing protector that was too good looking for his own good.

But for her 21st birthday, Marin will get all that and more.

Will she be able to find a balance between the ups and downs, between the horrendous and the amazing, between the betrayals and the heart thumping romance?

I swear, my heart began to speed up just thinking of sharing that with the world. If only I could write the books, and let someone else do the promo part. Part of me cringes at the prospect of writing promos, queries, synopsis letters, etc … Maybe some those that enjoy the horror genre, and suspense, can tell me how to over come this part … because, really, I would rather face Stephen Kings idea of clowns than write another one of those right now. But until I can find someone willing to pull the weight for me … I guess I will continue to write and rewrite.

Back to the salt mines *sigh* 😛

I did managed to run across on publisher that only asks for the synopsis and the book itself. Sending my work out to Gone Writing Publishing wasn’t as harrowing as some of the agents and publishing houses out there.
http://gonewritingpublishing.blogspot.com/They are just opening their doors, and I can’t wait to see what new books they help get on the market for us to enjoy. Man, I love books. 😛

To wrap up, I will share some of the comments received from the ‘love your author’ poll …
https://lccdena.wordpress.com/I love Lee Preston and Lincoln Child. They write archaeology/history suspense novels.
https://lizajanechronicles.wordpress.com/I’m going to go new school. Mary Catherine Gebhard is an indie author who is so talented I foresee her becoming a bestseller.
Stephen King has to be my favorite author of the moment. My favorite changes as I read new and enticing stories, and Stephen King’s depth of storytelling in It will stay with me for quite some time. It’s a story that you find yourself dwelling on months later.
https://window2mysoul.wordpress.com/I have a big list for “favorite authors”, some are (no orders) Rabindranath Tagore, Bankimchandra Chatterjee, Saratchandra Chatterjee, Maupassant, Maugham, Doyle, Jules Verne, Hugo… Barbara Cartland
https://kasimskorner.wordpress.com/Can I say me or is that not humble enough? :p
Jane Austen she makes me grin foolishly and make me feel book contentment not just from her main novels but her minor works and letters
Great idea! There are really too many for me to list! But I did add a few. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog, and I’m glad you enjoy my posts. Look forward to seeing you again soon, doors always open at Jean’s Writing.
