Return of the Blood Darters (Book) - 1/1/2012 8:47:32 PM|
Part two- after reading part one Blood Darters I had no choice but to read this one....OH my Lands! she has to move and she is happy to do that. Ellen now has enough money to buy her own home with the money. She even promised Josh the blazer when he turned 18 years old. They were all happy and on their way to find a new home and a better life.
Ellen's and her kids life seemed to be getting better, she had two other problesm and that was she had ended up with the Truman kids. She had no choice but to being them with her when they left Mountain view. Ellen knew she had to adopt them and do the right thing in her life and it was on that day to the couthouse she met a man who simply was breath taking. Ellen knew this was the right move after she meeting the young lawyer."
However after I read more into the book it was becoming clear trouble was back or something dark has followed her there. What did those ugly creatures want with ellen and wy did they follow her there? This book becomes more intense with every page filled with mysteries and who are the bad and who are the good ones---you have to read and found out who these tiny fish like creatures are truly after, but I did found out nothing would stand in their way.
You have to read the first book to follow Ellen and children on a journey of their life...yes I said life and death."

Tattoo Granny (Book) - 12/20/2011 11:02:04 AM
I bought this book after hearing all the reviews from other people who were at social events and several were at my church. Some of the members had bought copies of tattoo granny because it read about all ages, even mentioned the elderly one lady said. I thought it sounds a bit silly with a title called tattoo granny, but I will not judge a book by the cover so I read it myself.
Now I bought the book and read it and now I know why people were talking so much about this tattoo granny. This book is funny and the character's names cracked with their names. ( Breathalizers) Wow I thought. It caught my attention from the very first line after Jessie loved his grandma so much that when she passed away he placed a tattoo of her on his arm. What kid would do that? I wondered but I still had to find out why, so I kept reading to find out answers to all the questions in my mind."
Yes I wondered the same thing as his friends did. What about his tattoo would be there for the rest of his life even on his wedding night. I read more into this crazy funny comedy called tattoo granny a book I thought I would never read. It took me back to the time about my own grandparents who I miss dearly. Tattoo granny was not only ink in this story, she was becoming more real everyday and like she said "Everything happens for a Reason."
I would recommend anyone to read this book. It is funny and full of the wildest things as tattoo granny takes you on a wild ride...so you should give her a chance like I did. I was not fully convinced at frist till I started reading it."

Beatrice Willems Janice..finished reading your book...Granny Sublett reminded me of my 72 yr old Grandma..I loved the names in the book..like"Breaththlyzer"..I found it to be very well written..intertwined with human emotion and love of family...Interesting slant on the "relationship with a spirit"...the Tatoo having a heart of gold..Good angle on the Fading tatoo and then finally disappeared...I especially liked the phrase..."Everything happens for a reason...Nothing stays the same..." So true in life... . Anyone can and will relate to the book.....nice ending..where he Tattoo returns for a last farewell..but (could come back..It was fun reading the book.. ....Again....Very good Job!! Congrat's.. greetings , Beatrice :))

Since I'm a Brit, it took me a while to get used to the language in this story, but I was sufficiently hooked to work at it - and enjoy it. But it seems to have the same story several times, so I'm guessing there was a problem with the software?

With a bit of editing, (puncuation, captilization) this will be a very intriguing book. (The first few paragraphs were a bit confusing as it kept switching from present tense to past tense ..... but that's a easy fix and exactly where editing would be a plus.)
Good luck. You have a vivid imagination and your story is going to be well received.
Blood Darters (Short Story) - 10/29/2010 6:38:04 PM
Blood Darters-the tittle, Ellen Garvin epitomized the plight of the everyday single mother: fresh from a toxic marriage, trying to raise her children the best she could, and ultimately desiring a do-over in the form of a fresh new start in town. How serendipitous that this fresh new start simply fell in her lap. First, by being befriended by a friendly machanic with more secerts than he owned socket wrenches. Nest, an invitation to stay in a sprawling country home free of rent until she got back on her feet. Atlas, all things come with a price. The beauitful country home that had lovingly taken them in had actually wanted something in return: dreams, imaginations, souls. None of which Ellen was willing to let go of, at any cost. Even if it meant disrupting the one hundred year rivalry of two undead brothers, lying dormant in the basement. Waiting to finally avenge their destinies, one Good and one Evil,Will this house claim all of the ouls of its current inhabitants? Will Ellen muster the last bit of engery the House hasn't depleted of her in order to reclaim her family and get out alive? Or will the blood darters continue their century long reign over the house on Heart Stone Road?
