A Poetic Journey | The Write Room Blog

A Poetic Journey | The Write Room Blog | Water the mind - READ | Scoop.it

The following poems are tied together by a common theme. They were taken from my book of poetry called What I Found in the Dark. But they also follow each other chronologically. Think of each of these poems being written by one man regarding the same woman. Watch the story develop. Get a sense of the love involved. And I hope that maybe, just maybe you will get a sense of what it was that he found in the dark.  - Clayton Clifford Bye, 05/02/2014 -

Sharla Shults's insight:

Clayton Bye is a writer, editor and publisher. The author of 9 books and a varied collection of short stories, poems, articles and hundreds of reviews, he has also published (under the imprint Chase Enterprises Publishing) 3 award winning anthologies of excellent short stories by some great talents from around the world.

Emily Guido is a very New Young Adult, Paranormal Romance Author. She was inspired to start writing "The Light-Bearer Series" because one day she got an idea of two characters of light and dark who needed to have their epic romance story told.

Successful #FreeKindle Weekend–It’s all in planning ahead…

Successful #FreeKindle Weekend–It’s all in planning ahead… | Water the mind - READ | Scoop.it

"I didn’t plan to be a writer. As a matter of fact, I feel funny calling myself that even though I have written and published my first novel. As I’ve said before, I’m an CRNFA, a certified RN first assistant specializing in open heart surgery."

 

Surgery is meticulous, precise and focused, requiring attention to detail and pre-planning according to the needs and condition of the patient. New procedures, new technology, and anatomical anomalies with the patient (weird quirks with their anatomy) require everyone involved in the surgery to plan ahead to insure it’s success…well, I used that same mindset with planning my FreeKindle promo.

Solidarity or ‘supremacy’? by Bryan Murphy | The Write Room Blog

Solidarity or ‘supremacy’? by Bryan Murphy | The Write Room Blog | Water the mind - READ | Scoop.it

Many of you reading this, especially if you live on the American continent, are likely to be the children or grand-children of immigrants, if you are not first-generation immigrants yourselves. You will know all too well, from family history or direct experience, the heartbreak that migrants feel on leaving their homeland, and the hardships they withstand when trying to build a better life for themselves and their family in a new country.

Sharla Shults's insight:

Bryan Murphy is a man of Kent who left the United Kingdom shortly after graduating and has spent most of his adult life elsewhere, notably in Italy, Portugal, Angola and China. Since retiring from his most recent job, as a translator within the United Nations system, he has concentrated on his own words, publishing many poems and several e-books. He welcomes visitors at http://www.bryanmurphy.eu .

Their attraction was electric. Their affair explosive. And their love devastating to those around them.
Despite being happily married, Taylor Allen found herself deeply attracted to singing legend and eligible bachelor Larry Davis. But, it remained a simple infatuation until she finds herself in the front row, center seat, at one of his most anticipated concerts. Their eyes meet and electricity arcs between them like a summer lightening storm. But, living a fantasy that millions of women dream of could come at a steep price."

My guest author this week is Trish Jackson. Trish has the singular honour of being the first author I’ve interviewed who knows how to shoot a UZI submachine gun, let alone sleep with it under her bed. There must be a book in there somewhere. But, for today, welcome Trish! Tell us a bit about what you’re working on these days.

 

First, a big thank you to you, Mary for having me on your blog and for asking such thought-provoking questions.   I'm currently writing a new romantic suspense novel, Impassioned. This is a very intense story revolving around my protagonist's relationship with a serial killer. I'm also working on edit-1 from my publisher of my upcoming romantic suspense/comedy novel Kickassitude. This is a sequel toRedneck P.I. and every time I read it again, it makes me smile.
