Every few months..amongst the awesomesauce requests I get, I also get some not so awesome ones. Some that make my face melt off like those damn Nazis in Raiders of The Lost Ark. If you stare to long at those requests you may find out the secret of Pandora’s Box but you will lose your soul. Here is a small sampling….
My book should be funny and make you smile–but if you tell people that (like I’m doing right now) it almost always raises the expectation too high………And I think the world needs more “fun” fmailies. So if you dont enjoy reading about my funny, crazy world then we would have a hard time enjoying each other’s company. I’ll bet that is not the case.
So what you’re telling me is that the book should be funny but it’s probably not. Also please proofread. PLEASE. You know, I’m not an agent but at least run it through spell check. If your request looks like this tragic mess I’m truly afraid to see what the actual book looks like.
….takes readers on a journey through pain, deception and lies, and deeply hidden secrets as Shauna Lee Holt looks for a second chance at love in the sad life she has created by walling herself off from the rest of the world…….She lives a lie and the lie, she hopes, will protect her…..She feels unworthy of his love. How will he feel, she wonders, when he finds out who she really is?
Unless she’s a serial killer, I can’t see what this horrible horrible lie could be. IF she was a serial killer, this might be interesting. This sounds like chick-lit, which I don’t read. Period. The name of the book has the word “RUN” in it. Which I do believe is what I’ll be doing.
What happens when the son of high society Boston old money marries the nouveau riche New York daughter of immigrant trades folk? Will there be smooth sailing? Will there be rough waters? Will this union withstand the test of time – or will the two lovers fall victim to the poison of power?….You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll be captivated by the characters….
The bigger question is will I care? Which I don’t think I will because I generally don’t read historical romance. If and when I do it better be damn good historical romance. I doubt I’ll be captivated and writers should be barred from the “you’ll laugh, you’ll cry” shtick.
When Kitty the beautiful, pampered daughter of a wealthy senator-falls in love……….And our female protagonist is also a warrior in her own right. Kitty is no spoiled, delicate flower-she loves to hunt and fish and ride….richly detailed, well-researched book that examines the lives affected by the Civil War.
So the main female is a pampered, unspoiled woman? Aren’t most one or the other? This book includes the word BREAST in the title but don’t get your hopes up because I doubt there will be any shown, talked about or hinted at. Again with the historical, this time Civil War. This is no Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter…
…thriller follows the increasingly obsessive behavior of a woman out of control with the fantasy of a perfect love that she can never have with a perfect stranger…. He is an unknown man with an unknown name and he is with an unknown woman, but he is the one she wants….readers will need to turn each page of this lean novel quickly to see how its mystery will ultimately resolve….
This is 50 pages…not nearly enough time for any type of character development, esp for a psychological thriller. I need meat in my thrillers. Like a jumbo sandwich full of meat….That’s a lot of meat for those people who don’t understand my meaning. I too often want the perfect life of the perfect person with the perfect family and perfect money and maybe a perfect dog or two….
Until Next Time….
