...a gentle story that touches the heart. ~ Judy & Marianne from Long and Short Reviews

...I haven't been so touched by a book in a long time. ~ Roberta Capizzi


Where She Belongs

She never wants to go home again.

For Jess Morgan, Destiny Falls holds too many painful memories. Nine years ago, a logging accident near the remote timber town killed her dad and her high school sweetheart. To make matters worse, her mother quickly sought comfort with another man. That choice tore Jess apart and drove her to seek a life far away. But now fate steps in, and family obligations force her return home. Before long, she’s convinced that persuading her mom to live with her in Toronto will repair their shattered bond. However, she doesn’t count on a long-ago friend re-entering her life and challenging her convictions.

Rugged forester Adam Wright believes in family, roots, and not running from heartache. Now, all he wants is to help Jess break down the walls of the lonely sanctuary she’s built for herself and heal her past hurts. It’s not until she rejects his plans for their future that he realizes his persistence is pushing her away—not at all what he intends.

Has he lost his chance? Or can he convince Jess that where she truly belongs is with him...forever?

Series Saturday: Jack Ryan by Tom Clancy

The Cardinal in the Kremlin
I'm sure you have heard the sad news on Tuesday that Tom Clancy passed away. I have mentioned in passing a few times that I really like the Jack Ryan series. It was actually the series that got me reading again after college. It also instilled in me a love for stories of espionage.

The Jack Ryan series is the best kind of series. You can pick up and read anyone of them and not worry too much about the order you are reading them. I read once that Clancy often was writing more than one at a time and which ever story he finished would be the one published.

I was like the typical college graduate - I hadn't really read much for pleasure during the 4 years of matriculation. But I have always been a big reader so without the mandatory reading lists I felt a bit of a loss as to where to start. I was too old for the authors of my high school years (though I was reading adult books then as well as the typical YA). I remember reading a few of the classics that had been assigned in high school, but I hadn't gotten to (while an avid reader, I'm also a bit of a slow reader). There was only so much classic literature that I could read at a time and I felt strange telling people in interviews that the last book I read was Hamlet.

I had watched several of the movies that the books had been made into and Mom had a few of the books that hadn't been turned into movies. So I started there and then hit up the library for the others. Over the years I have picked up copies at book sales and thrift stores. I'm not sure if I have a favorite in the series, but I do have a Top 3. I think The Cardinal in the Kremlin was the book I started with and one of my favorites. Though Jack Ryan was the quintessential hero and possibly the first book character I had a crush on, the Cardinal (aka Mikhail Filitov) was a favorite character.

It is Clancy's ability to fully develop secondary characters that also drew me to my other two favorites. From all the reports I've seen recently, Clancy's most famous book may be The Hunt for Red October. In my early days of reading Tom Clancy, I skipped the books that I had seen the movies. But I came across a copy of The Hunt for Red October at a book sale where you got all the books you could put in a bag for $3. I'm so glad I read it. So much more happened in the book than in the movie.

To round out the Top 3 Favorite is not technically a Jack Ryan series book, but John Clark - Rainbow Six. I really like Mr. Clark too.

I haven't gotten around to the Jack Ryan, Jr series, but I think I'm going to remedy that soon since I am finishing up the series I've been reading from the library. It will be interesting to see if I think the thrillers are still as great. I'm really partial to Cold War era espionage, but I think Clancy's writing will still pull me in.

I haven't tried the other series Clancy has penned. Mostly because I thought I needed to branch out to other authors and some of it was because they were more techno-thrillers.

Are you a fan of Jack Ryan? Or do enjoy one of Clancy's other series?

And just a side note - I much preferred Harrison Ford at Jack Ryan to Ben Affleck (Sum of All Fears was probably my least favorite Jack Ryan movie).

Their unfolding relationship reveals encouraging surprises for both of them, and privately each of them wonders if theirs may become a true marriage of the heart.

Excerpt: Under the Sun by Jude Ouvrard


You met Jude Ouvrard on Monday. Now read a snippet from her romance novel Under the Sun.

By the end of the afternoon, we had finished painting. To be honest, his help had made all the difference. He lent me a hand with the curtains and frames, too. Everything was finished by the time we took showers for our night out. I hadn’t expected to finish the painting in one day.

More than anything, I had enjoyed spending time with Jackson. He joked around and made me laugh. He’d been in good spirits all day, and he had done an incredible job on the walls he’d covered.

“I really appreciate what you did for me today. It was very nice and generous of you.”

“It was my pleasure, Tracey,” he said, stepping up to me.

My gaze danced between his eyes and lips. For the first time in years, I really wanted to be kissed. My heart fluttered in my chest, and from the way he looked at me, I wondered if he wanted it, too. Using both of his hands, Jackson cupped my face, and we simply stared at each other for a very long time.

“I really like you, Tracey. You're beautiful, but I won't kiss you now. When I do, I want it to be magical. Don't get me wrong, my sweet angel; I want it, too. More than you know.”

Under the Sun
When he whispered, he was so close that the warmth of his breath lingered on my skin. I could feel the intensity of his words. He brushed his thumbs across the apples of my cheeks. I huffed when I realized that he wouldn't kiss me, which made him laugh. Jackson kissed my forehead. His lips felt so soft and warm. I knew that he meant well; that he wanted to wait for the right moment. My heart was falling in love with this man, and I couldn't help it — not that I wanted to.


Jackson dropped his hands from my face and left to shower at his place. I stood alone in my freshly-painted living room with my heart pounding against my ribs. Feeling giddy, I danced my way to the refrigerator and ate a little bit of everything before heading into the bathroom to take a shower.

Buy Under the Sun  at Amazon

I had to find something to wear. We were going to be walking, so I had to be comfortable, but I didn't want to under-dress. Heels were not an option. My sneakers seemed to be appropriate and would go with the denim skirt and black V-neck T-shirt I’d selected. The outfit was cute and simple.

When I walked out the door, Jackson was sitting on the hood of his car, waiting for me with a beautiful bouquet of tulips. For the first time of my life, someone had brought me flowers. My eyes filled with tears, and my nerves felt like they were on fire. Jackson walked to me with the bouquet in one hand and his other hiding in the side pocket of his shorts. Looking at me through his pale lashes, his eyes simmered with desire, and he bit his bottom lip. My heart skipped a beat. I could picture him in a Ralph Lauren campaign; he was gorgeous and irresistible.

Once he reached me, he placed his free hand on my elbow and leaned in to kiss my cheek. My breath quickened; the closeness was making me lightheaded and giddy. I couldn’t think straight. He offered me the bouquet. “I got these for you. I hope you like them.”

Of course, I do.

“Thank you — thank you so much,” I murmured. “This is a first for me. I’ll never forget it.” I smelled them and closed my eyes, soaking up the emotion.

“If you don't want them to wither, you should put them in water,” he suggested. He spoke to me in a soft voice, and his hand still rested on my arm. I was impressed by his courteous manners.

“I’ll be right back.” I went inside to put the flowers in a vase. How sweet was he?

When I walked back outside, Jackson reached out and took hold of my hand. “You look beautiful.”

I giggled. “Thanks. You’re not so bad yourself.”

Summary:
Tracey Howard has put her life on hold for years to care for her grandmother. Now that her grandmother has passed away, Tracey decides to spend the summer at the beach and reflect on where she wants life to take her next. Jackson Phillips is her new neighbor, and he dazzles her from the first moment they meet. Will Jackson be able to show Tracey how to let go of old pain and embrace future happiness?

Kathy Flute: Essential Tools for Publishing Your Book

Let’s face it. Finding the right publishing agent for your book can be tough. After you’ve spent immense time writing and editing your book, it’s hard to know exactly who can help you in your mission to publish your book. When you embark on your quest to publish your book, you’ll need the right resources in order to make your experience as stress-free and profitable as possible. If you use the following tips and resources, you’ll be seeing your book on shelves in no time.

Polish Your Book

While it may come as a no-brainer, publishers won’t spend their time with written pieces that are incomplete or poorly-written. You’ll need to organize your content in a way that makes it publisher-friendly like making sure your ideas and points in the story flow well and aren’t so scattered that the plot is incomprehensive. If you’re having trouble enhancing your book, freewrite to create more chunks you can add later, or break down the main events, climax, and ending into three acts. This helps break down the rise and fall in action.

Choose Good Publishers

When searching for the ideal publisher for your book, consider what genre your book would fall under. Most publishing companies have agents that specialize in certain genres, so if you send it to the wrong one, your manuscript may go right into the wastebasket. A quick company and internet search will help you zero in on which agents could become the best promoters of your upcoming book. Feel free to read reviews and contact multiple agents in order to gauge who can handle your book the best.

Consider Self-Publishing

While self-publishing is popular, it takes a ton of time and effort to do it well. When self-publishing, make sure your book includes effective and attention-grabbing content. If it doesn’t have that, your book has virtually no hope of selling. Also, if want someone else to edit your book, either hire or simply ask for a volunteer who will. Don’t rely on one set of eyes to find mistakes and make edits. You don’t want to send something to the printer with spelling/grammatical errors. Many self-published books, especially on Amazon, are poorly edited if they’re even edited at all.

Market Your Book

Do something like building a page on Facebook or setting up an e-mail list to start solidifying a platform for your book. Depending on if you have a hands-on publisher or not, you’ll need to actively market and promote your book by offering to do events like book signings, question and answer sessions, and book readings. You’ll also want to have an overall marketing plan in place so you can set dates and goals for your promotional activities. Lastly, you’ll want to pick a book cover that intrigues and complements your book’s story well. After all, this is the first piece of your book people will view when it hits the stands.

Finally, you’ll want to be prepared to answer any and all kinds of questions that your readers may direct your way. This way you can relate your book to a broader audience and showcase your knowledge on the subject. If you follow these simple guidelines, you’ll go from creative writer to author with your name on a book to prove it.

Waiting on Wednesday: Unremembered Things

Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases we are excited about.

Unremembered Things by Rachel Tsoumbakos

Publication Date:  December 2013

Genre: New Adult Paranormal Romance

One woman, two worlds and nothing but UNREMEMBERED THINGS separating them. 

Indiana Shamira has a dark secret that could shatter her very existence and get her killed in the process. Now if only she could remember what it is… 

Life is hard when you have amnesia. Indiana Shamira found that out the hard way when she woke one morning and found her whole life had been erased. Getting up out of bed and slipping her feet into fluffy purple slippers she could only assume were hers; she had the task of having to discover the world around her once more.

When she finds a vampire called Sam hanging from the rafters in her cellar, she knows things are about to get nasty. Not only does Sam know all about her previous life, but he seems intent on seducing her as well. Of course her boyfriend, Kurt, has different ideas – like making her open the portal to hell! 

And then there is the nagging suspicion that Indiana is not entirely human, now she can see ghostly images from the Otherworld. Or could it be from her past life? They include the flickering effigy of Kurt and a redwood forest that conjures up repressed magic. 

Not only will Indiana have to risk everything to keep the door to another dimension closed, she will have to decide whether she is ready to lose her heart to someone who has more secrets than herself. 

Set in the lush Australian bush, UNREMEMBERED THINGS is a fusion of fantasy and forbidden romance.

Promise Me Darkness

"He was my darkness and I was his light. We couldn't exist without each other."

For me, life was simple. I went to school and studied. I spent time with my friends and stayed out of trouble. I didn't drink or swear and I only dated gentlemen. I was the typical good girl with a bright future. My world seemed perfect. 

But that was about to change.

Ryder Delaney was the one imperfection in my life. He was the bad boy, the black sheep, the one your mother always warned you about. He had only one hard-and-fast rule - Don't fall in love. 

But some rules were meant to be broken.

We were best friends, inseparable since childhood despite our differences. I knew the real man hiding behind the tattoos and bad attitude. He knew all my secrets and dreams. But he didn't know there was one thing I wanted and couldn't have...him.

But sometimes Fate has a way of intervening. Soon our world collapsed. War erupted. Darkness prevailed. Alone and on the run, our only goal was to survive and to ignore the feelings we had for each other. But love is powerful...

and so is the darkness.

Review: The Hitwoman and the Neurotic Witness

Have I told you lately how much I LOVE this series? Seriously, I've tried to find a substitute and none have come close to being as funny as JB Lynn's Hitwoman series. Check out my reviews of Book 1, Book 2, Book 3, and Book 4.

You would think after 5 books that they would lose some of their pizzazz, start to feel cookie cutterish, or become predictable. But, no. I laughed through every page for the first 4 chapters of The Hitwoman and the Neurotic Witness. It's got to be the animals - they crack me up.

Book 5 begins right where The Hitwoman and the Family Jewels left off. Maggie's apartment isn't the only thing going boom and her "boss" wants to know who the bomber is. Maggie is hoping her and Patrick are going to get off and not end with Patrick getting offed. (ok, I'm not anywhere near as funny as JB). There is a pretty hot and heavy make-out session between Patrick and Maggie. The aunts and their beaus along with the scrabble tile reader are all present and accounted for. Zeke returns with a mysterious woman and even more mysterious job. For how funny the beginning chapters were, the story took a serious turn towards the end. And I'm starting to think Maggie may need to get multiple lives juggling lessons from her murder mentor. I can't wait to see what happens next.

review
I always do a little happy dance when a new Hitwoman hits the shelves and this one was no exception. If you haven't started this series yet you are missing out. It's like Toys'r'us for grown ups (turns your frown upside down). If you need a pick me up, then pick up the whole series. You won't regret it.

Meet Jude Ouvrard

Jude Ouvrard
When I was in elementary school, I started learning a second language; English. I didn’t like the teacher and I had a hard time remembering everything she was saying. I could barely make the difference between "how are you" and "who are you". It was my least favorite class.

When I started high school, my parents enrolled me in a private school. During my first English class, I realised that I was behind everyone else and I hated it. After a few classes, the teacher noticed and decided to be the one who would make a difference in my apprenticeship. She offered me to be part of a program where I could buy books for a cheaper price and they would help me improve my English. I remember buying a few books about movies that had come out in that period. She also suggested that I start watching TV in English so I would get used to the sound and I did. I was a really big fan of Beverly Hills 90210 at the time so I started watching the English version. I can’t say that I was able to understand everything but slowly, words started making sense and I was able to understand. I also started watching The Fresh Prince of Bel Air and I loved it. That year, everything changed, I started loving learning English. I was buying magazines for teenagers and doing as much as I could to learn and I finally caught up to my classmates.

By the time I was done with high school, my grade had improved considerably. I was able to read in English perfectly. I could watch my TV shows and understand everything they were saying. Sometimes to achieve your goals, you have to change your habits and that’s what I did. started watching TV, listening to radio, and reading in English. Slowly, I was able to learn and understand the grammar and vocabulary. It took time but I did it.

****

I started writing stories when I was nine or ten years old. I was very creative and I always had storylines coming together in my mind. I used to write before bedtime and I would hide my notebooks in my wardrobe. I kept them a secret. My great-aunt was an author, Hélène Ouvrard. She wrote quite a few books in French. A few months before she passed away, I remember telling her that I wanted to be an author, like her. I was inspired by her talent for quite a while.

In my teen years, I was hanging out with my friends, snowboarding and doing other things and writing wasn’t a priority. I remember writing poems when I was around fourteen years old but that’s all I did for a couple of years.

Buy Under the Sun at Amazon

At seventeen years old, I had my own apartment in Montreal when I decided to write again. I was now writing on a computer, always in French. I spent many nights writing my first story. I was hooked again.

A few stories and a number of years later, I started reading novels in English. I found myself addicted to reading. I could read day and night and survive on only two hours of sleep. I read tons of romance and supernatural. I started participating in Facebook groups where other people would hang out and talk about books.

In 2009, I was in maternity leave and I decided to write my first story in English. It was a disaster, a lot harder than I thought. I never shared that story with anyone but I knew that it was the beginning of something I wanted to do. I never finished the story. I decided to continue my reading because I had heard that reading could help with my writing, so I concentrated on that for a few months.

In 2012, my son was now three years old and he started playing and drawing on his own. I had a little more time for myself so I began writing a new story. For this one, I had a pre-reader, a beta reader and every week, I would publish a chapter on a fanfiction website. I knew my English wasn’t perfect but I had a lot of followers and they didn’t seem to mind. According to the reviews, they liked my story. This story marked the beginning of my dream.

Months later, I heard that Renaissance Romance Publishing had an open call for a beach read anthology. I decided to submit my story. I had little hope that they would pick me but I took the chance. I started writing at the beginning of February 2013 and I gave up that same week. Why? Because I didn’t think I could do it, I didn’t want to waste my time and I didn’t believe in myself. For two weeks, I ignored everything about it until my friend, Tracey, forced me back into my writing. I had only one week left to write it, get it pre-read and edited. Well, I did it, and I sent it to the publisher. I didn’t expect anything before 6 weeks as they had mentioned on their website. Later that night, I received an email from them telling me they wanted to contact me via Skype the following Sunday. I was nervous, it was driving me crazy. I had to wait a few days before the call. When the time finally came, I kicked everyone out of the house and waited for the call that changed everything. They wanted my story; they wanted to work with me. I was astounded and overwhelmed. It was a new beginning for me.

Seven months later, I’m about to publish my second novella with Renaissance Romance Publishing, it’s called Wonderland. I’m also working on my first novel, Body, Ink, and Soul and I’m hoping to publish before the end of 2013.

I know my English is still not perfect, but I’m grateful that I had a teacher who believed in me. Without her, I probably wouldn’t have worked as hard as I did and I probably wouldn’t have been able to publish my first novella.

Never stop believing in yourself, have faith and work hard.
