A Promise of Forever by MaryEllen Brady (Book) - 6/22/2012 7:17:49 PM|
MaryEllen Brady has written a real page turner. I just finished reading this book but please don't tell anyone; it's our little secret. I've always been told that guys don't read romances. Whoever said that was wrong. I like other genres, don't get me wrong, but when I saw this book I just had to give it a shot. And I'm sure glad I did.
'A Promise of Forever', what a fantastic title. To me, this book has everything in it that a good romance could have-of course there is sex, but it's not raw and it's done tastefully; all the human emotions are there as well-there's love and lust, anger, extreme happiness, heaps of jealousy for sure, the bonds of friendship (the for life kind), the love of family. It's all there. I don't know if being stubborn is a human emotion but that's in there too; after all, aren't we all a bit stubborn at times. Everyone can relate to this book in some form or fashion; I know I did.
I won't tell you the story line because I don't believe in ruining that for any reader. But I would encourage you to read this book; it's really very well-written. I'll let you in on another little secret. I recently met the author and I think she's a wonderful lady; she's genuine and kind-hearted and her personality is reflected in her writing; that's another thing that makes this such a great book. And the editing is just fantastic. I'm a stickler when it comes to the English language and believe me, I looked and I couldn't find any mistakes.
I hear through the grapevine that she's in the process of writing two more books. And if they're anything like 'A Promise of Forever', I'm afraid I'm going to have to read those as well. And I'll probably write another review but whatever you do, don't tell anyone I read these books. If the guys find out, I'll never live it down. Do yourself a favor, relax with a cool drink and read MaryEllen's book today. You`ll be glad you did.

How Hard Could it Be? a poem for my dad and for me (Poetry) - 11/9/2012 4:06:55 PM
Ron...Thank you. My DAD was special for sure. It`s been 3 whole weeks already and I think about him all the time. I miss him so very much. It`s funny how, when you`re a kid, you think your DAD will live forever. I grew up and I realized that I was wrong. I only wish I could have retired and had the time to go on trips with my mom and DAD. Alas I will retire in January. But my DAD had a massive heart attack 27 years ago so we were lucky that he was with us for that long.I realize that but it doesn`t make it any easier. I am planning to write a story about my DAD after I retire, including stories from my whole family. Thanks again Ron....D

While Reading by Terry Kay (Poetry) - 6/16/2012 12:28:46 PM
Brilliant writing. I wish I had read those writers, dreamers of men, but I haven't them all. I am out spinning my own tales on the wings of none.
