So Many Books. So Little Time. Let's Review!

Archive for the month “July, 2016”

Make August WRITE A REVIEW On AMAZON MONTH @TerryTyler4 #AugustReviews

A very good idea! Let’s all do this, and make a general habit of leaving reviews. It actually DOES move the books up in Amazon’s ranking, making them easier for readers to find. Love an author? Leave a review!

August 2016 is Write An Amazon Review Month! By @TerryTyler4 #AugustReviews

rosie gardening 02 facebook wp

 

On Monday 25th July, book blogger Rosie Amber wrote this post encouraging readers and writers alike to post a short review on Amazon for any book they’ve read and enjoyed ~ following this up, Terry Tyler is starting this initiative along with other writer-bloggers including Rosie, Cathy from Between The Lines, Barb Taub, Shelley Wilson and Alison Williams.

 

The idea is that, from August 1st, everyone who reads this uses their Amazon account to post just one review on one book that they’ve read (but feel free to carry on if you get in the swing!).  You don’t even have to have read it recently, it can be any book you’ve read, any time.  The book does not have to have been purchased from Amazon, though if it is you get the ‘Verified Purchase’…

Chapter 27: Victoria

Thursday 25th September

Victoria was lonely. It was a week since she’d arrived and she hadn’t made any friends yet. She sensed most of the women resented her. Probably because she was Seth’s favourite, she told herself, pushing away the memory of two days ago.

She hadn’t seen him to speak to since then.

She thought it would be so different being in a commune; that she’d belong; be accepted for herself. Not as Richard’s stroppy sister, or her parents’ difficult daughter, which she knew was how they thought of her, but as one of the community here; as Seth’s girlfriend. It wasn’t turning out like that; not yet anyway. Two of the girls in the dorm had already complained about the amount of time she spent on herself instead of her taking on a share of the work. Well, stuff them, they could get lost. She…

#ExcerptWeek – Harbinger by Marcia Meara

And while I’m sharing excerpts, here’s one more from Harbinger: Wake-Robin Ridge Book 3, which I posted on The Write Stuff recently. Enjoy!

Thought I’d squeeze in an excerpt of my own, if you guys will indulge me. This is a scene from Chapter 3 of  Harbinger: Wake-Robin Ridge Book 3. Hope it gives you a shiver or two, and you get a small hint as to the kind of man Cadey Hagen is, along the way. Enjoy!

Morganton, North Carolina

EYELASHES FROZEN, EACH gasping breath a snowy plume in the frigid night air, the boy ran for his life. Heart pounding, he scrambled up the wooded slope, terror driving him faster and faster.

There! Just ahead, a warm light glowed in a small window. Home. Safety. Only a few yards more.

He lurched forward, sure he was going to make it, now. His heart sang with joy, even as his foot slid on an icy patch of old snow, and he went down hard…

#ExcerptWeek – Another #Harbinger Excerpt on Carmen’s Blog

Had a chance to share an excerpt from Harbinger on Carmen Stefanescu’s blog. Carmen is a writer in Romania, and I’m very grateful for the opportunity to share with her followers. Hope you’ll check it out.

The Write Stuff

e9b3da6713b2c2c542fa3df6db739ba8One of my inspirations for the Birdwell drive.

Just wanted to share a brand new excerpt from Harbinger, for those who’d like to read a completely different type of scene. This one features Mac and his adopted son, Rabbit, hiking up a long, deserted mountain driveway to an abandoned cabin. I won’t go into the reasons they’re headed that way, because it would involve spoilers, but I think the scene might capture your imagination, anyway. Hope you’ll take a minute to check it out, and my heartfelt thanks to Carmen for having me as a guest on her blog. (I’m still trying to get my head around the idea that someone in Romania is posting a sample of my work. What a world we live in!)

Check out the Excerpt HERE.

#TuesdayBookBlog – Wake-Robin Ridge Reviewed by Cathy at Between the Lines

Wake Robin Ridge_kindle cover4

I’m breaking the rules a bit today, in order to share a lovely review of my book, Wake-Robin Ridge, by Cathy at Between the Lines. I was so pleased to find it this morning, I just had to share, and I hope you’ll bear with me while I shamelessly toot my own horn. (Okay, I’m really letting Cathy toot it, but you get my drift.) Check it out, if you would. And then, if you haven’t started reading this series, go grab Wake-Robin Ridge. It’s the first of three–so far–in my mountain series. (We’ll talk about the Riverbend series another day.)  😀

Thanks for indulging me!
