Fortune. Reveal Your Destiny…the neon sign flashes, catching my attention on a dismal, rainy afternoon. Well, why not?
 
Nashville has always been competitive. My granddaddy called it the Hillbilly Babylon.
 
He was absolutely gorgeous and supposedly had a sex problem, the problem being he couldn’t get enough. Long curly blond hair and green eyes rimmed with long dark lashes. Billie Joe Inspiration - Donny Lewis6He was so tall and slender he could’ve been an actor or model, but like the rest of us, guitar was his love. He looked more like a rock god or a movie star than a country music star. But, his looks, talent, and charm had taken him a long way from Richmond, Virginia. Sheer tenacity, ambition, and loads of old family money had made Billie Joe the current Guitar God of Nashville, Tennessee.

Exciting teaser for sure. 
Since it’s a short and I know I love everything this author has produced till now, I pushed this one up on the TBR list and dove in.

Ms Jones Official 11-13ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Exile on Peachtree Street.

Lover of all the finer things in life.

The art form I create when writing is much more interesting than anything you will ever know or learn about me. However, since you ask, I have lived in Tennessee and Georgia my entire life, except for one “lost summer” spent in Los Angeles. I was always a complex kid. My first published stories were for a local underground rock publication in Nashville. Since then, I have published articles on music, fashion, art, travel and history.

Currently, I have a music/entertainment blog @ExPatsPost.com. My debut novella, Fables of the Reconstruction, was published in 2012. Moon Rose Publishing included my novella, Magic in Memphis, available as a short story on Amazon, in their anthology, A Celtic Collection.

Edgar Allan Poe and Anne Rice have always fascinated me, although like any Southern girl, I will always idolize Margaret Mitchell for writing Gone With The Wind. I also adore the works of John Grisham, and own a huge selection of his books. I live in Midtown Atlanta, Georgia with my husband, my books, too many clothes, too many shoes and way too many stacks of notepads and journals.

October 2013 saw the launch of a novel collaboration, SEPTEMBER ENDS, contemporary fiction laced with romance, erotic and supernatural elements, bound by poetry. This novel is written with an anonymous English poet. SEPTEMBER ENDS has been labeled an “Indie Sensation” due the critical reception and international recognition the novel has received.

My newest venture is The Fortune Series. The Story of Dallas Fortune. This collection will be a series of short stories and novelettes chronicling the lives and loves of Dallas Fortune.

The release of Fortune Calling is scheduled for January 30, 2014.

So hurry and get your copy today!

Review Carniepunk: Parlour Tricks by Jennifer Estep

AMAZON | PAPERBACK

This short story had all it needs. A full story arc, fully fleshed out characters, and a scene setting to draw you right in from the start to hold you until the final full stop. If this is how this author writes I would certainly want to read more by her.
My gripe with the rest of this book is that it’s only teasers/excerpts in this book. To read the full stories you’d have to buy { Carniepunk Paperback } Caine, Rachel ( Author ) Jul-23-2013 Paperback, of which I thought I had. An omission on my part because I failed to read the description properly and just downloaded this book on the recommendation of a friend. She was right, because I loved the story by Jennifer Estep, but had I known the rest was mere excerpts I wouldn’t have gotten this one, but gone for the full version of Carniepunk, because the excerpts of the other stories make me think I would love those too.

Review The Guest by Karen Dales

cover Guest

 

AMAZON

This short captured me from the start with the scene setting and the way this author knows how to make me almost hear the monks chant. She expertly builds up and foreshadows what is bound to come, but then still surprises with the how and the who.

I loved how she made the Guest real and gave him an unexpected dept. All the other characters, even the ones who have a minor part in the whole, are not just cardboard figures but real and alive. And like I mentioned above the scenes are properly set without becoming an info dump, but rather is very much picture painting.

Yes, a very pleasurable read I would suggest to everyone who likes reading a snippet of buddhist life presented very different from what you would expect.

Review Her Older Man by Lorraine Sears

I’ve read another short, Big Red, by this author and had high hopes for this one. The writing is solid, but …

What my gripe with this one is you can read in the review below.

cover Older Man

AMAZON

A nice story, but instead of beginning at the start of it the author opted for a short info dump to begin with to bring us up to speed and then rolled out the story. An opportunity missed to turn a nice story into a great story.

I liked the romantic notion and could feel for the main characters, although I must admit the whole swooning over the man and how fantastic he looks was a bit much. However, that might just be me not being the man admiring type of person and having not much patience for women who fall to pieces when their love life isn’t what they wanted it to be.

But having said all that I must admit I liked the read, my only gripe is that it doesn’t start at the beginning.

Review Winter Promises by A.C. James

AMAZON

This short story was although highly erotic, never really satisfying in a way that tickled the reader in me. It had more a feeling of being a chapter from a book than that of a short. There was no real beginning, nor a real end.

So if you want to read an erotic scene with no real substance this is the—I hesitate to call this a book—thing to reach for. If you expect a well rounded story with a proper arc and characters that have substance look somewhere else.

However, I have to be honest, I did like it. It might not be a literary masterpiece, and have a title that has nothing to do with the content, but it was a nice read never-the-less.
