Keep a watch for me and let me know. Thank you.

Hello Everyone,

If you see my book available anywhere but Amazon, please let me know. I’ve only given permission for it to be on that site. I’m finding it has been pirated and am quite unhappy about it. As many people may know, one of my best friends is an attorney, and I am very unhappy that my very first book is out there like this. Considering I have e-copies I want to give away very soon, this really is annoying. I’m pretty easy to get along with in regards to people reading the book, but stealing is something else. Interviewers and the like have received copies and I know they are honest. I know people can do a lot electronically to recreate the product, but it’s just wrong. This book took a year to get to the finished product.

Thank you and Much Respect

Ronovan

Excerpt from Amber Wake: Gabriel Falling by @PSBartlett & @RonovanWrites

Here I giveth to thee, the story I hath slaved over this past year. Be entertained, be enthralled, and forever more, be joyful.

Author Ronovan Hester

Amber Wake: Gabriel Falling

The autumn of 1705 brings Royal Navy Captain Gabriel Wallace to face off against an enemy within the ranks of the Admiralty itself that threatens his career, his reputation, his family, and something even more far-reaching in its plot.

Court-martialed and with Admiral Chambers, the mastermind fearfully known as the Chambers of Hell, out for his destruction, Wallace finds he has allies willing to face the might of the mightiest power on earth, with some allies in the most unlikely of places. The crew of his former command, the Majesty’s Venture, mutinies from the Royal Navy. With capture by his enemies close behind, Wallace agrees to become captain once again.

With a ship at his command, Captain Gabriel Wallace sets out to fulfill his mission, the completeness of which only he knows.

Now a pirate by situation, Wallace sets out for the Colonies and the Caribbean. Will his crew…

Live in the Now, not with the Ghost of the Past. #BeWoW

nemoMy theme this week so far has been silence. Keeping one’s silence is golden. You appear wise when not engaging a fool, even if you are a fool yourself, which in some way or other we all are.

Living in the moment for me means I don’t ALLOW those old moments to flare up my emotions to interfere with my dealings with the moments of today.

If we all ALLOWED them to happen, we would never love as we all most likely have had broken hearts.

By living in the moment we ALLOW ourselves to experience things we would have missed out on otherwise. We don’t ALLOW fears to get in the way of adventures. By this I mean foolish fears, not wise fears that bring us caution.

Living in the moment is a difficult thing to do at first. With practice it can be done.

ALLOW yourself to enjoy life. ALLOW yourself to be more than you ever imagined.

As pain is the past,

The future’s in the present,

With great hopes and dreams.

Here are some free Kindle books pertaining to living in the moment. I haven’t read them yet, but they have good reviews and I thought I would bring them to your attention. Quotes are from Amazon Book Descriptions. Click images for Amazon book page.

Be present, see the divine at work in all circumstances, and experience ordinary life as sacred. Learn to practice the art of abundance as a form of spiritual awareness based in gratitude. “

 

Much Love, Success, and Respect

Validated! #NaNoWriMo 2014

Winner-2014-Web-BannerNational Novel Writing Month

Finally had the courage to validate it today. 50, 292 words of a YA adventure book. Nice experience and now I might have some time to get back to Blog World.

I even made a cover for it. I don’t know how Chris The Story Reading Ape does it.

Yes I put his link in there because seriously, if you have an author for a significant other, child, sibling, parent, or whatever and you want to give them a gift for Christmas they would love you for life for, go there and contact Chris. A custom designed book cover is a dream come true.

My Thirst For You

An excerpt from a novel I am currently revising. The words are those of the leading man writing to the woman he loves during a low point.  I am finally embracing writing Romance and Love that I have been avoiding writing in novel form for so long. The book was written last year, but has been marinating since then. Now I am ready to make a go of it. Wish me well on this journey.

Free Book Alert! This weekend only, The WorldMight is FREE!!!!!

FREE BOOK ALERT! FREE BOOK ALERT!

I GOT MINE!

Hello everyone,

I have some GREAT news. Yeah, it’s a FREE BOOK! The heading up there might have given it away. I love free books.

 

I know you remember Cyril Bussiere, author of The WorldMight who I interviewed not long ago. Well guess what.

His book is FREE this weekend for download at Amazon! That’s right, I said FREE!! I’m downloading it and as soon as I read it I am going to put in a review of it.

 

A couple of quick things from Cyril about the book that I didn’t ask him before. Yeah, I did an author interview and I didn’t ask much about the book. We know lots about Cyril though. Yeah, I still hate him . . . smart, plays guitar, and speaks French with the accent.

RW: What genre doecopyright_Cyril_Bussiere_All_Rights_Reserveds The WorldMight fall into?

CYRIL: The WorldMight is a fantasy rich of mysteries, romance, and mysticism that unfold in parallel stories.

RW: Tell our Reader Friends about those parallel story perspectives.

CYRIL: One follows a mysterious prince walking the world in search of a mystical word; a word that has never been said, a word that would free his love from the clutches of a mythical beast. With love as his only fuel and compass, he will go further than humanly possible and overcome countless dangers and obstacles arising both around him and from within.

The WorldMight also follows the story of Aria, the reluctant princess of the Kingdom of Alymphia, her best friend, Cassien, the weapon master apprentice, and her brother, the king-to-be Prince Hobgard, as they get ready for the upcoming Fall Passing Festival. The celebrations are fast approaching and merriment can be felt throughout the kingdom. But events that occurred decades prior are about to come crashing on their lives; events involving terribly powerful beings, the beloved and wise Master Baccus, and Aria’s father, the good King Hedgard.  And once all is said and done, their world will be changed forever.

 ~~~

 

I want to thank Cyril Bussiere for this quick description of his book The WorldMight that you can’t find on his website or Amazon, just right here.

Remember July 26-17 you get The WorldMight FREE at Amazon for download. And when you finish reading it, be sure to give an honest review as thanks for the book. No, he didn’t ask me to say that. But hey, wouldn’t you want your friends to give a review?

Hunger No More! Author Amira Makansi-The Seeds Trilogy-A New Kind of Hero

Mira Makansi Author

Katniss Who? That’s what every new somewhat dystopian YA book with a heroine likes to say, “We’re going to make you forget Katniss.” The main character of Remy Alexander in The Sowing is not your typical stereotype. She is much different, and that’s only part of what is intriguing about the story. There are other concepts you can read on The Professional Project Site. They do a better job of explaining it than I could. I write about writing. You know, those who can do, those who can’t teach or write about it. Well I’m a former teacher who writes about writing.

A blurb? Comparing Hunger Games and The Seeds Trilogy is like comparing a Jackson Pollock painting and a Van Gogh. Both are visually appealing and entertaining but one gives you something not quite as real as the other.

 

The Who: Amira Makansi

The Personal Blog: The Z-Axis

The Professional Project Site: The Seeds Trilogy with the publication of the first book The Sowing: The Resistance Has Begun.

 

I recently spoke with Amira Makanski, the middle 1/3 of the Mother and Daughters creative team behind The Sowing: The Resistance Has Begun, Book One of the The Seeds Trilogy, and was much impressed with her passion for what she does and her being real. I could tell right away that her book is as half as full of spirit as she is then it will become a standard of measurement. She’s a very open and engaging person and the experience was entertaining, a pleasure and informative. I learned about her book The Sowing available to purchase in print and e-book.

 

Her story has personal characteristics and concerns that a true writer cannot but help but put into their creation. This isn’t just a fantasy for her, it is a heart felt, and well thought out world she has created. And she didn’t do it alone. Her co-authors and creators are:

 

Elena Makansi at her personal blog Citizen Fiddlehead

 

Kristina Makansi of Blank Slate Press and Tree House Author Services

 

I won’t go into details about the book, I leave that to you to visit their the official site which does a great job of explaining the YA and NA mix of adventure/science fiction/romance and overall inner/outer life struggles/turmoil of its main characters. The site gives a great overview of the story, the background, and even has character profiles and discussions about the world’s technology and shows some of the artwork with the characters.

I will say the world in some ways is almost a possibility which makes it even more of a must read.

There are twists on characters that will appeal to you, I even identify heavily with one of them. No character is one dimensional it seems. In a way it keeps you wondering what the person might do next in a given situation.

 

The heroine is not the typical cookie cutter versions of recent years and after reading the biographies of the authors you will understand why.

 

The only thing I would change about this project would be to have my name on it instead of theirs.

 

This was not an interview or review but simply someone impressed by a creator and creation and wishing to share it with other creators and potential readers. It’s out right now and the sequel is out this fall. Read it now so you aren’t behind.

Visit the site. You’ll enjoy the tour and enjoy the author bios.
