Secret Diary Of PorterGirl

I was very honoured to be the first guest on my chum Dan Alatorre‘s new show, Writer Rants, to talk about PorterGirl books First Lady Of The Keys and The Vanishing Lord. Here are some edited highlights; whilst almost two hours of Daniel talking about how great I am might be good for my ego, no one really wants to listen to that. But what you might want to listen to, however, are insights into how I built up the Old College world and developed the characters, the truth about what really happened at Cambridge University and how I fell in love at first sight at the Royal Opera House…

Book Review – “The Memory Of Health”

Being Lydia!

MemoryOfHealth2

“I have been given this product as part of a product review through the Chronic Illness Bloggers network. Although the product was a gift, all opinions in this review remain my own and I was in no way influenced by the company. “

“The Memory of Health” by Edie Summers is a very interesting book. I think she had me from the start of the forward with “Dear Friend”. Why? Because I instantly felt this person wants to meet me where I am.

The 470-page book takes on many forms:

  • It contains excerpts from the author’s journal citing how her health is from day to day, etc.
  • The author has included some of her own poetry which gives a glimpse into how her illness comes out in her creativity.
  • There is some medical terminology to give substance and credibility.
  • And there is “the story”. All through the book, Edie talks about…

Featured Blog…Ms Leigh M!

4.5 stars rounded up. it took me three restarts to get into this book, but I finally got it on that third time and it was completely worth coming back to and reading cover to cover. The timing was a perfect fit, I started it July 5th, sixth months into the Tr*mp administration, and barely put it down until completed July 7th. The essays are intelligent and her breadth of knowledge is impressive – though she acknowledged the advent of Google and internet searches, the way she weaves the information together is all her. I love the stream of consciousness, I write in a similar manner, just without all the travel, facts, or famous connections. Given the current political situation in the United States, I find this book very current and almost mandatory reading. The chapters that relate to the Bush Jr./Gore election and aftermath are a striking parallel to…

Lovely 5* Review on Inkitt: This Is Why I Write. Thank You Reader!#amreading

Kim Knight_ The Author

I’ll always write no matter what, or who says what for that matter. But as a published author, when you put your work out there for the world to read, love, like or hate, you’re always wondering if readers will connect with you. When they do, it’s so motivational to keep going. The late nights and lack of sleep seem worth it all over again. Not just at the time when you were so caught up in writing, you never noticed it was 3:00 am. Thank you for this lovely review reader… My response is, well I’ll take comments about scene changing as a positive. You wanted more of the characters no problem! When a writer hears this they could not be happier.  The Romance Set in Paradise Series Book #2 will be released in July, it’s a more  “slow burner” for you.

Thank you reader!

This Adventure Ends

Emma Mills

Oh my gosh! THIS ADVENTURE ENDS is such a cute and heart warming coming of age story! This is only my second time reading Emma Mills, but she sure knows how to warm my heart! I was instantly hooked on all of the characters and emotionally invested on their lives and troubles. Sloane has just moved from New York to Florida and doesn’t have any friends…..yet! At a school party, she meets twins Gabe and Vera and her life is never going to be the same.

THIS ADVENTURE ENDS is a fast paced YA contemporary story with a lovable heroine and a great bunch of friends. When ever Sloane doesn’t know how to handle her emotions or a situation, she makes fun of it and let me tell you, this girl is seriously funny. She had me giggling and snorting through out this lovely book…

My Book Review of Journey To Aviad

Second Wind Leisure Perspectives

Book Review Journey to Aviad by Allison D. Reid original image by Allison Reid

I am pleased to share my review of Journey to Aviad, Book 1 of the Wind Rider Chronicles, by fellow blogger and author, Allison D. Reid.

Allison D Reid photoAbout the Author

Allison D. Reid is a Christian Fantasy author with a fondness for Medieval history. Her first published series, the Wind Rider Chronicles, embraces traditional fantasy elements but is also infused with deeper spiritual themes.

From the Author

“Real, three-dimensional, lovable characters are a must. A good story also has layers of meaning, so that you can read the same book more than once and catch different things each time. There should be an element of beauty and hope, but also plenty of mystery and suspense. I want to be moved by a story without being traumatized by it. I don’t deal well with dark, graphic, or tragic stories—they haunt me without mercy to the point…
