Casualty of Court: Meet the Cast

Well? Have you met the cast? Hurry! Release Day is fast approaching! 😉😉

Author_Iris_Chacon

March 21, 2018, is release day for the new L.S. Fellows mystery novel, Casualty of Court, and the clever author has provided readers a unique, enjoyable way to get a peek inside the upcoming courtroom drama with some twists.51mzj5ohwml

The story is told by — and from the POV of — four principal characters. So, rather than just read a snippet from Casualty of Court, why not take a peek at Meet the Cast? This shorty links the prequel to the bigger story and offers an insight into what each character wants from the upcoming trial.

The Cast

Fern.

He will not break me.

It’s been eight months, eight long months since Jorge—or as he is really known, Stefan Pereira—tried to drown me.

At last, it’s time to see him get what he deserves. But, it also means I have to go back to Portugal too. Don’t get me…

Subtext #amwriting

Writers, you’ll definitely want to check out this post AND save the link! 😉

Life in the Realm of Fantasy

A good story is far more than a recounting of he said, and she said. It’s more than the action and events that form the arc of the story. A good story is all that, but without good subtext, the story never achieves its true potential.

Within our characters, underneath their dialogue, lurks conflict, anger, rivalry, desire, or pride. Joy, pleasure, fear–as the author, we know those emotions are there, but conveying them without beating the reader over the head is where artistry comes into play. The subtext is the hidden story, the hints and allegations; the secret reasoning. It is the content that supports the dialogue and gives private purpose to the personal events.

These are implicit ideas and emotions. These thoughts and feelings may or may not be verbalized, as subtext is most often shown as the unspoken thoughts and motives of characters — what they really…

Award Season – the BLU:RBS are here …

Lynne has such fun posts! Check it out! 😉

Just 4 My Books

After the Golden Globes, the BAFTAs, the NTAs and now the Oscars, it seems only appropriate to give some recognition to another form of entertainment: READING!
So, here’s my nod to Award Season, with my own specially-crafted statue:

BOOK LOVER’S UNION: RECOMMENDED BOOKS STACK

or the BLU:RBS, as I affectionately call it 😉

Now, before anyone takes this at all seriously, it’s a fun post designed to show off my books and those of my author buddies. No nominations or voting took place. It’s just for laughs 🙂

Let’s get started:

The BLU:RB statuette for best cover goes to: FORBIDDEN COLOURS

Forbidden Colours

What if your memories were not your memories? What if the drug hailed as a cure became a curse and ultimately your destruction?
Midori Yates works for pharmaceutical giant KLD. The launch of new drug Centoria has revolutionised the treatment of amnesia, with outstanding results. Trials exploring its use…

The Name Game continues …

Nothing like good friends…except friends who are also writers! 😁💜

Just 4 My Books

If you read my previous post, you’ll know I’m a tad curious about how the names we’re given as babies can later reflect who we are.

Pardon? You haven’t read it? Then you’ll not be aware of my “life-taking” qualities then … you’d best take a look back, quickly now … I’m “overpowering” too 😉

I mentioned there was someone I wanted to feature, someone who truly lives up to her name. This lovely lady is a fellow author, she’s a member of the same Women’s Fiction writing group, and she just about epitomises her name with her generosity, warmth, humour, mild coffee addiction, and kindness. She’s also – I’m delighted to say – a great friend of mine, who makes me laugh, cry and repeatedly bang my head on the desk … 

Please, let me hear a huge cheer for Felicia Welch-Reevers, aka the author, Felicia Denise.

Supporting Indie Authors

Great thought-provoking post for anyone who downloads ebooks! 😉

Just 4 My Books

Picture this – you see a book you’ve had your eye on for a while is suddenly  “FREE” for a limited time.

Do you snap it up, keen to get your mitts on it, and pat yourself on the back for nabbing a bargain?

Assuming it lives up to your expectations – which, naturally, are extremely high – would you then one-click another by the same author? Even if it involves spending a few pennies?

In answer to all the above, I’d say  YES each time. One can never have too many good books, can one?

But, what about those “PERMA FREE” books, designed to hook you in, again hoping you’ll become a fan of said author and buy – as in pay for – more?

Do they work?

If something is permanently free, do you still attach the same value to it as something that is only free for a…

Guest Post: Reading Outside Your Identity and Why it Really Matters by @Natasha_Lane1 #guestpost #diversebooks #discussion #tuesdayblogs #diversity

Excellent guest post on reading diversity and identity – you should stop by! 😉👍

Reads & Reels

Reading outside our own identity… A topic that’s sure to ruffle a few feathers but is so important nonetheless! Here’s what Natasha has to say about it.

Some of you saw this title and immediately clicked. Others saw this blog title, rolled their eyes and prepared for the usual.

Well, before you knock this post off as another rant about needing more characters of color (actually we need more authors, too) and the necessity of diversity, give me a minute and let me explain some things to you. Maybe it’ll change your mind about the own voices movement or get you to read an author who looks/believes differently than you.

Okay, to kick things off, I need to let you know I have an issue with the word identity.

Too often in America, when we talk about identity or diversity we limit our thinking to only race, specifically black and…
