This post talks about my latest writing obsession. It gives my thoughts about my writing this past year.
Sometimes life's little quirks are the perfect opportunity for something wonderful in your life. In my case a random line in a movie led to my first traditionally published novel.
This book was a surprise for me. I don't normally read CIA novels or anything remotely realistic. I enjoyed this book and was intrigued by the story line and plot. I felt like it was a paranormal twist on Jason Bourne and really liked the action sequences. I turned the pages as fast as I could for the first 200 or so pages.
This children's book was the perfect mix of humor and values. My girls were learning to take care of a "pet" without ever realizing it. Every day Riley and Carly diligently took care of their egg setting an example for any child reading this book. The writing was simple and straight forward making it easy for even my four year old to grasp the concepts. It was an instant hit.
We moved in from opposite sides. The first Mordere did not see me coming. I rushed in with my sword and swung at its neck. Blood sprayed covering my face and chest. My sword was caught on bone and the Mordere’s head hung from muscle and sinew. It was still alive and grabbing for me now. I pulled the dagger from my belt and plunged it into its heart. The creature screamed in rage. I grabbed the head and ripped it from the body as it crumpled to the ground.

Overall I have no complaints about the writing. It was a children's book written by a twelve year old and I don't know that I wrote that well at her age. The story was age appropriate and entertaining. If you need a good story to help your child with bullies this is the book for you. I'm giving it 4 stars.
Triad has realism and plenty of raw emotion that isn't always seen in epic fantasy. If you like action this book has it in scores. Aleena and Anlon killed more people than an army.The plot was well thought out and the series has potential, so I am giving this book 3.5 stars.Overall if you want an action packed novel with plenty of violence and some gore this is the book for you.
Review requests may seem like a tedious and pointless exercise but they are essential to getting reviews. Let me explain why.
Character wise, some books really surprise me because some characters can turn out to be heroes in their own right even without saving the day or slaying dragons. For me a hero is someone who acts with his or her heart and in the simplest ways tries to make the world a better place.
