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."

Sharla Shults's insight:

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. Not ever dreaming a week later she would have over a 100,000 words written.

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.

Sharla Shults's insight:

Tips from an author who had the guts to put her life in full view for the world to 'see' the horrific images of child abuse!

Why should you read this book? Because in the face of severe adversity lies hope within a will to survive and determination to beat all odds.

Older people may find e-books much faster and easier to read than their paper editions, a new study has claimed.


While people young and old prefer reading paper books to tablets and e-readers, older individuals could find themselves reading faster and with less effort on a tablet, found researchers at the Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz, Germany.


 

Among 360 readers ages 21 to 34, no difference in reading speed or brain effort was detected between reading via a book, an e-reader and tablet.


But big differences were recorded among 21 users ages 60 to 77 when they read the same text on paper instead of the devices, TechNewsDaily reported.

Sharla Shults's insight:

Most interesting statement to me: Despite the physical findings, older adults and their younger counterparts said they got more pleasure reading from a paper book.

Significant omission here include Jim Butchers next Harry Dresden book, Kevin Hearne's hunted (due out in June), Kim Harrison's Ever After (Jan. 22) and a lot more. I know we all have different taste, but still ... these are well regarded and popular writers and should not be omitted. Yet, I am posting this because we all need hints and what might be worth reading.

 

I got Memory of LIght on its release day. Anyone who has finished it already sure is a fast reader! This is a long, very complicated book, tieing up the ends of all the books that went before, which were also long and complicated. I don't think speed reading is the way to go on this one!

I focused mainly on Broadband 4G technology and was very integral in the launch process.There are many “myths” surrounding women in technology: ·      You can’t dress chic and flashy but wear jeans and t-shirts·      You stay up all night·      You eat unhealthy food while coding or designing software
