FFJ’s Freebies, May 13th, 2018

While buying books to read this week, I came across a couple of freebies.

Here they are, ripe and ready for picking.

Don’t forget to read your books and leave a kind review for the author when you’re done. That is always a great way to ‘tip’ and author. That and buying their books 😀

Enjoy!

Improve a scene: Urban Fantasy story

I’m currently reading an urban fantasy tale. It’s all part of developing a stronger understanding of the expected Tropes in that genre so I can write stronger stories.

Anyway, the book is super fast-paced. WOW! As in if a story is supposed to have peaks and valleys, this one is all peaks. There’s very little time to breathe. I know authors are told to pace their stories and the action in their stories but something tells me breakneck tales are beloved by a large number of readers.

FFJ’s Freebies! April 17th, 2018

I was in cave mode last week and neglected to put up a list of freebies. For that reason, this week’s freebie list is twice as long! Here’s hoping you find something of interest and enjoy some good reads.

That being said, FFJ’s Freebies are brought to you by The Paragon, Book 3 of The Nome Chronicles series. Available for sale on Amazon and free for Kindle Unlimited users.

When love turns to hate, is there a way back?

Since her father’s death and the subsequent betrayal, Neith trusts no one. She has learned to be ruthless and will do whatever it takes to defeat anyone in her way. Having once loved Invier only adds to her determination to crush him.

Invier can’t believe the girl he sacrificed so much for wants him dead, and he’s desperate to convince Neith he’s not her enemy. But her threat is not his only concern, nor is she the only one he needs to save. In the end, finding a solution might require him to resort to the very tool he hates—violence—and, he may need to kill the one he loves.

Invier and Neith’s struggles will bring them head to head in a final and deadly showdown as The Nome Chronicles come to a thrilling conclusion in THE PARAGON.

2016: My Year in Books! Part 2

I’m going to carry on with my book reads this year. So without further ado, here are the remaining books I devoured in 2016.

The Scarlet Thread by D.S. Murphy

Blame this guy for my having listened to Fallen in audiobook lol! He apparently advertised The Scarlet Thread by piggybacking on the upcoming Fallen movie. He didn’t say go read Fallen but reading his advertising approach caused me to read both that book as well as his short story, The Scarlet Thread. I enjoyed his story, fortunately and will look out for the full novel when it comes out. The characters he created were interesting, the universe was intriguing and I’m sure the longer piece will be only better. Oh, and I’m truly jealous that he created his own stunning cover.

2016: My Year in Books! Part 1

One key piece of advice for aspiring authors is to READ, READ, READ.

While I’d heard and read that suggestion everywhere, I didn’t take it seriously until this year. As a result, I did my best to increase the number of books I read in 2016. I’d set a goal on Goodreads for 12 books but, I’m going to read 24 or 25 books this year instead.

That isn’t an earth-shattering number for many others, but for me? It’s a fly me to the moon sort of number. (Uh, I don’t know why I have Frank Sinatra singing in my head, but that’s where the moon reference came from).

So, what did I read this year?
