Dark Return is the sequel to Belterra, Time After Time, and takes place about ten years afterward. When Belterra was populated long ago by a select group of humans sent here by the ancients in the hope of saving the human race, the indigenous race of bat-like creatures called the Batrach were forced into the ocean and underground sea caves by a giant force field. The force field has now weakened. The Batrach have emerged from their watery prison and they want their planet back.

Awesome! Strong Women Warrior Lead! Fantastic!

Wow and more wow! This was fantastic! So emotional in many ways. Captivating at every turn of the page. Excitement, mystery, action, surprises and true love brings this story altogether. I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough. I was not disappointed by any means at all, it was awesome.

Angela an unexpected affair 3

Years of emotional abuse have ended. The divorce is final, it’s over. With not even a child to tie her down, she is free to open a business. Freedom comes at a cost. She is alone and can’t go to his family for comfort as she used to.
Addison hired a student. He’s gorgeous, competent, and if she was ten years younger… but she’s not and he’s her employee. Still, she can dream, can’t she?

First time I listened to this story was in the Christmas Treasures short story collection and I was not disappointed. Angela has a great way of building characters that are very relatable with strong females and this book is no exception. She leaves you turning pages waiting and hoping and hooks you in. I’ve read all her work and looking forward to even more!

Buy this book and look for her other work!…

“I can’t get enough of Lawrencovna’s books.” – Out of the Woods: A Mother Goose Legend (The Never Lands Saga) by Andi Lawrencovna

There was an old woman who lived in a shoe;
She had so many children, she didn’t know what to do.
She fed them all broth without any bread;
Then whipped them all soundly and sent them to bed.
~Mother Goose, The Dorling Kindersley Book of Nursery Rhymes (2000)
She took them from the woods, and she took them from dells, from hamlets and homesteads and across the wide world, she found young orphans, those abandoned and left on their own, and gave them a home.
And all she asked for was a little piece of their soul in payment…
Whoever said nursery rhymes were harmless?

I can’t get enough of Lawrencovna’s books.
I can’t stop reading Lawrencovna’s books. She has a way with her writing style that makes you feel like you’re right there with the characters. You’ll feel sympathy for…

Things To Consider When Making Your Characters Suffer #MondayBlogs

Lucy Mitchell

Have you ever had to inflict pain and suffering onto one of your much loved fictional characters?

Have you ever reluctantly tipped a bucket full of life crapover two characters who have just found true love and as you you were doing it felt like you were betraying two old friends?

Have you ever struggled with your emotions while writing a scene where your character suffers and that scene ends up lasting only a few unbearable tiny paragraphs?

Before I published my debut novel Instructions For Falling In Love Again characters in my stories rarely suffered.

If I did have to inflict pain on a character it would last a paragraph at the most and then I would spend 3 lengthy chapters making things up to them.

I have been known to write a paragraph of character suffering and then at editing stage revise the hell out of that…

Serialists: How Male and Female Serial Killers Differ – by Sue Coletta…

Chris The Story Reading Ape's Blog

Male and female serialists differ in many ways. By the end of this post, you decide who’s more ruthless.

The media attaches cutesy nicknames to female serial killers, like Giggling Granny, Jolly Jane, or Tiger Woman.

For males they use epithets that beget terror, such as Night Stalker, Flint Serial Slasher, and Jack the Ripper.

With female serialists, however, the victims never view her as a threat until it’s too late. Thus, it’s a mistake to underestimate a woman hellbent on murder.

5 Editing Terms All Indie Authors Should Know #GuestPost by Claire Jennison

Ritu Bhathal

As a writer, we have the craft to create worlds, characters, and their stories. Inside our heads, those stories run like an all-singing, all-dancing movie. (Well, they do in mine…) but do our words convey this same effect for a reader?

Often, we are so close to the story we have created, it is hard to spot where we may need to make changes, add or remove items, spot crutch words (Oh, I have compiled a list, a mile long, of mine).

This is where editing comes in.

And as an Indie author, I remember the mind boggling at the different aspects of editing; the different stages that your book baby goes through, to become a polished piece of prose, ready to be presented to the world.

With this in mind, I am delighted to invite professional editor, Claire Jennison of Penning and Planning to step up and give us…

Character Building: How Much Planning Should I Do? (PART 1) – by Angela Ackerman…

Chris The Story Reading Ape's Blog

Writers Helping Writers:

Not sure how much brainstorming needs to go into each character? You’re not alone.

It’s a struggle for many, and unfortunately, there’s no single “right” answer. It really depends on the character’s importance in the story, their function or role, and the writer’s own process.

A rule of thumb might be to dig as deep as you need to in order to understand what is motivating them in the story.

But honestly, what does that look like?
