The Desire Bookclub

A few months back, probably 2, I finished reading a Harlequin book and found a gem hotter than the hero inside; a cardboard page.

Now, I’m 30 almost 31 and anytime I’ve ever found a cardboard page inside a book, it’s been to order something! And order something I did. In fact, it was 2 free books if you signed up for the Harlequin book club. #winwin

I signed up for Desire books, I’ve read a few and find them to be my favorite so far. I got my first 2 free books and the month after that 5 more. Needless to say, I’m giddy about this months shipment.

Behold:

The first book I’m reading from my first care package, The Magnate’s Marriage Merger, Joanne Rock. (Click the link to buy on Amazon)

Denton Little made me give a shit……..

I STRUGGLED through the first few chapters of this book. I debated giving up on it and I rolled my eyes anytime anyone asked me how it was but be it a new year, I’ve made a goal to NOT give up on books and good thing I didn’t!

Finally, around chapter 6 or 7 things began to pick up and a story started. I was interested and for the first time gave a shit about this kid Denton. After that it was a page turner; it’s a fast and easy read. I’m still undecided on if I will continue the series but that’s much farther than I was earlier this week.

Yes, I have a feeling I’ll be meeting Denton again this year.

From Wattpad to Goodreads

I under estimate the amount of good books that can be found on Wattpad.

I know this is true because I just finished a wonderful book on Wattpad then quickly went over to Amazon to purchase it (after finding out it was printed and published).

So I’ve decided to start taking a look deeper into these Wattpad novels and I’ve realized, a lot of them are on Goodreads!

For instance, my next Wattpad book to devour, Perfect Illusion by Claudia Tan.

Yup, it’s on Goodreads and there is nothing better than a good book to fill the soul and checkmark a book read on my goal.

Professional editing; for all or only the rich?

I have stories. Tons of them in all states; finished, unfished, currently in process but above all, all dirty.

By dirty I mean unedited; too many commas, confusing sentences, important details missing and anything else you can think of. I’ll admit it’s my fault. I HATE EDITING. I do and I often don’t ever read what I’ve written, just type “the end” and move on to another project that has been sitting on the backburner.

Whenever friends or family come out with the phrase “you should hire an editor,” I’ve always spit back “yeah right, like I can afford one?”

But, CAN I AFFORD ONE?

I’ve done research on a few different editors but trying to find one that has all the services I am looking for without giving away my life’s saving seems impossible.

Does anyone have any recommendations?

 

Graveyard Watchman

Well, shit.

When I started reading Graveyard Watchman, I didn’t know what to expect. I found it on Wattpad and although I don’t usually find myself being able to add what I read on Wattpad to my Goodreads, I could add this one and it pushed me off the hill of my peaked interest and into the story.

He lifted his eyes to me. I was instantly captivated. He was sheer beauty in his black, hooded cloak. Was he real or just my imagination? It didn’t matter. I had to know the mysterious man shrouded in darkness…

The chapters are short and quick, the story fast paced and entertaining. I’ve already loaded up the second book and look forward to finding out more.
