Thank You for Your Support during The National Novel Writing Month

fullsizeoutput_b18

It is the sixth day of December, and I am catching up after a month of NaNo (National Novel Writing Month) and three lovely days attending an online writers’ conference and book expo by RRBC from the first of December until the third of December. I now look forward to getting back into my routine.

 

Thanks to everyone who cheered me on during the month of November. I wrote 63,036 words on the third book of my series. Revision will start sometime next year.

 

Shalom aleichem,

While the United States wakes up and begin preparing to share Thanksgiving Dinner, some of us Ex-Pats all across Europe have eaten. Today is the special day set aside to give thanks to God for His goodness and His faithfulness.

Many thanks to Steve at Steve’s Bar and Grill in Hanau, Germany. He and his staff are a home away from home on this lovely Thanksgiving Day for many Americans. He is the best cook on this side of Europe.

 

Happy Thanksgiving, Everyone!

Take care and be safe this weekend.

From the Pen of Mae Clair

December is approaching, and with it, the release of book 2 in my Point Pleasant saga,  A Cold Tomorrow. In anticipation of the December 20th release, Kensington Publishing is running a Goodreads giveaway. This is your chance to win a hard copy of the book while helping a hard-working author out in the process.

Er…that would be me, folks. 🙂

GR giveaways do wonders for getting books noticed with increased exposure, so I hope you’ll take a moment to hop over and enter. It will be a huge help to me, so please accept my gratitude in advance.

I’m currently busily working on book 3 of the series, but I have a special fondness for book 2. I’ve heard many writers find the middle book the most difficult to write. I didn’t encounter that problem, but it could be due to my fondness for the subject matter—UFOs, Men in Black, and, of course, the Mothman. What…

Rave Reviews By Nonnie Jules

Hello and welcome to “WHO’S ON THE SHELF?” with yours truly, Nonnie Jules!  Since we are a book club, we had to offer something that included a book shelf.  A lot of interviews merely cover an author’s work or an individual’s career stories.  Here on this “SHELF,”  we get down and dirty and ask the questions no other interviewer dare ask.  We ask the questions that you want to open up a book and find the answers to on your favorite authors and fellow book club members, but no one has dared to cover them.  WE get personal!  Because when you sit on the RRBC “SHELF,” YOU are an open book!

Today I have with me on the “SHELF,” our Current “SPOTLIGHT”Author, A. M. MANAY!

NJ:  Before we get started, how does the “shelf” feel to you?  Is it comfy?

AM:  So comfy. It’s the fluffiest…

Passion & Struggle by John Fioravanti

img_0331

The High Chancellor paused and sighed before continuing. Images of Elandra Caine, the Earther doctor who saved his life, played in his mind’s eye and tugged at his heart. His flagship had been seriously damaged during the battle in Earth space and his injuries fatal. But he survived because Earther medical science was far more advanced than that of the humans from Genesis. (A passage out of Passion & Struggle by John Fioravanti)

 

Now and then you run upon a book, which throws you a curve ball and blasts you into some unknown depth, you have not experienced for years.   That is exactly how I felt when I read Passion and Struggle by John Fioravanti.  I asked myself where am I as I fell into his world.

 

Passion & Struggle is the first book of the Genesis Saga.  Fioravanti has conjured up a believable world. His world presents the scientific, the paranormal, the biblical, and the inundated fall of a declining world.  To be quite honest, I kept comparing it to the last book in the Bible, The Book of Revelation.

 

Passion & Struggle reveals. It prophesies about a future that might exist if we humans do not get it together and learn how to live on Planet Earth.

 

Moreover, Passion & Struggle will make your mind spin out into another part of the galaxy. However, be careful. This book will make you think. It will force you to compare what is happening in our world today with the content in the book. However, that is what a book is supposed to do, Right?

The Cat Who Wanted A Dog by Micki Peluso

img_0394

There are not enough superlatives to describe this delightful storytelling coloring book. It is the perfect mixture of storytelling and illustration, of a writer, Micki Peluso and an illustrator, Neva Franks, both coming together to bring joy to children and adults with a child’s heart.

The Cat Who Wanted A Dog restored my love for coloring. It forced me to go out and buy crayons. Now, I take the time to paint a picture, and these are precious moments I treasure.

Your children will enjoy this little book and maybe you will too. I know I do as you can see below from the book I purchased.

Excellently done, Micki Peluso and congratulations on the teamwork with Neva Franks. You two make a great team.

A French Girl on the Prairie by Fred Pirat

img_0330This adventuresome little book was written in French by Fred Pirat and translated from the French by Bonnie Samuels.

The story told to him by a ninety-two-year-old woman is the true story of her adventures when she first came to the United States of America and went Westward to Montana with her Mother in the nineteen hundred’s.

Marie Delos was twelve years old when she first boarded the ship to cross the ocean. At that time, she and her mother were not aware of how primitive Montana was. The infrastructure had not been established.

A French Girl on the Prairie also tells of her other travels. Therefore, if you enjoy reading about Laurie Ingalls Wilder and her adventures, then you will enjoy A French Girl on the Prairie by Fred Pirat.

Shalom aleichem,
