This has been a trying year, yet quite rewarding. I managed to push out my second book, I started a review blog for new and indie writers and became a correspondent for an online magazine. Literary wise I have had a successful year, but personally I have faced some tragedies.
My belief is that God only gives you the strength to face what lies ahead of you and he only gives you what you can handle. I am still here to speak to his love and grace which proves my previous statement. With that said I would like to give those authors who honored me with the opportunity to read their literary works a second chance to shine. I was surprised and disappointed that I only completed 13 book reviews. Check them out below:
First the Challenge.
Christmas is just a few days away, and I usually have my challenge posted right after Thanksgiving, but wait, there’s still time. 🙂
I know we all have our own struggles and problems, but there are others out there that have it worse, so my challenge to you is to give something back. It doesn’t have to be huge. Here are few suggestions;
- If you knit or crochet, make a couple of lap blankets or slippers to donate to a convalescent home. (I know short notice, sorry)
- Buy an extra burger and fries and give to the homeless person on the corner, or pick up a couple of pairs of nice warm socks to give them.
- Help pass out food at the food bank
- Bake extra cookies and take them to an elderly neighbor or shut in, and take the time to visit with them.

There’s always the one…
He’s one person throughout life you think about every so often, the one who leaves his unique indelible mark on you, the person with whom you need closure.
For Margaret Collins that person was Mike Taylor. After he broke her heart seventeen years ago, she left everything she knew and reinvented herself. With a new home, a new look and a new name, Riley Williams is now an up and coming journalist given the assignment to interview a Mike Taylor. She never suspected he would be her Mike Taylor. With Mike having no hint of Riley’s true identity, she must decide if she will make him pay for sins he doesn’t remember committing, or if she can wipe away the past and be with the one man who she has always wanted?

As a reviewer, I know it can be hard to review material you don’t like, but I try to be as honest as possible. Usually if I can’t give a good review than I stick with the old saying, “If you can’t say something nice than don’t say anything at all.” But this isn’t always possible, so as a fellow author I usually read this bog to remind myself that someone is going to review me as well. For good or bad they are intitled to their opinion.
I hope this helps a fellow author or two to keep their head up while trying to navigate the world of book publishing.
