Burning Down the House by Allie Gail

Having the Courage to Write

By Sara York

 

Years ago, publishing was a narrow path. Books had to fit a certain paradigm to be published. Good books were rejected because they didn’t match the house profile. Publishers knew what their readers wanted and wouldn’t stretch beyond those constraints. This attitude is what allowed Harlequin to flourish. It’s what set apart a Harper Collins book from a Bantam novel. It’s the way readers knew what to expect from an Avon imprint.

 

For the author that didn’t fit the house style, it meant rejection letters that filled filing cabinets and manuscripts stacked under the bed gathering dust. Many gave up, knowing in their heart of hearts that they’d failed and no one wanted to read their words.

 

That was a lie!

 

The world has changed. People began reading ebooks on their computers. Then ebooks had devices you could … [Read More ...]

Velocity (Flight HA1710 #2) by Sara York



I’ve been writing for a while and in the last year I’ve hit more writer’s block/dead weeks than I ever thought possible. 2016 was an epically bad year for me. I’m not sure what happened, but there wasn’t much writing. Even now I’m having terrible writer’s block over this post.

 

I’m not sure how to cure the block or if there is even a way to cure it. I’ve tried relaxing, taking days off, taking weeks off, going to the beach, drinking alcohol, not drinking alcohol, meditation, working out, music, silence, other art, coloring, painting, yard work, cooking, not cooking, chocolate, and coffee. It’s not working. I’ve kind of just given in to the block and embraced it.

 

Maybe embracing the suck isn’t so bad. I do find that my closet is organized better. I’ve rearranged my pantry. My kitchen is clean. I’ve been able to cook some … [Read More ...]

mymarine_pride_exlarge_PNG-210x336

For a man who made his career in intelligence, falling for an Afghani national in the middle of a war zone wasn’t the smartest thing a Marine could do.

Marine Captain Sean Kelley loves his country and the men he serves with, but when he meets Akim, he’s tempted to throw it all away for the mysterious man. He knows better than to chase after a local, but repeat encounters culminating in a moment of passion leave him reeling—he’ll do almost anything to figure out how they can be together.

Akim Bijan has a secret of his own—one large enough to get more than just himself killed if it’s revealed. But from the moment he first lays eyes on the handsome Marine, he’s tempted to do just that rather than hide his growing attraction to the man. Being a translator allows him access to the base and he finds Sean … [Read More ...]

Everything changes in one moment. Sara’s gift saves her life, but there are witnesses. Her secret is out. She soon meets the charming Simon and learns exactly why her parents have kept her hidden away all these years.

Warning: This book contains religious themes.
This is a well-written YA novel that is intriguing from the beginning. While the book takes a little bit to really pick
up it will keep your attention until it does.  I loved the premise that there are people born with special gifts some which become apparent quickly and others that take well into adulthood to manifest.
