SPECIAL EDITION – REMSEPWRIMO

“We never did play tea parties like other girls. We played detective. Because that’s what Mercedes read, detective stories. And she was our Sherlock Holmes.

As children, our ventures were harmless enough. Until the day Simone fell in the river and disappeared.”

“I’ve always had voices—er, stories in my head. I once said I should write them all down so someone could write them someday. I had no idea at the time that someone was me!”

BLOGWORDS – Tuesday 19 September 2017 – TUESDAY REVIEWS-DAY – BOOK REVIEW – A RUSH OF WINGS BY KRISTEN HEITZMANN

TUESDAY REVIEWS-DAY – BOOK REVIEW – A RUSH OF WINGS BY KRISTEN HEITZMANN

                                                                             

Memories don’t stay suppressed, not truly. They hover, lingering near the surface, emerging to protect us. Or to frighten us.

 

Trauma has wreaked havoc on those memories in Noelle St. Claire’s mind, driving her to seek refuge in an unknown place, with people who know nothing about her.

 

But past and present will collide, and Noelle’s life catches up with her, sending her spiraling further downward where the truth lies.

 

 

Ms. Heitzmann takes the reader into the shadows of dark memory, one fragmented piece at a time. Torment trolls across every page, even when Noelle is smiling. Something is hovering just out of sight, and Ms. Heitzmann skillfully draws the reader to that edge. I felt the panic, and press of anxiety, and I heard the wings as the hovered nearby. I cringed in the shadows. I championed Noelle from my safe space as a reader and I wept with her at the seeming hopelessness of it.

A daunting story of a hidden past, and hope that lies in unexpected places.

 

 

I purchased this book on Amazon. I offer my review of my own free will, and the opinions expressed in my review are my own honest thoughts and reaction to this book.

 

 

Kristen Heitzmann is the bestselling author of contemporary romantic suspense, psychological suspense, and historical novels, including Colorado Book Award finalist The Still of Night, Christy Award finalists Indivisible and The Tender Vine, and Christy Award winners Secrets and The Breath of Dawn that won both a Christy Award and Inspirational Readers Choice Award and was a finalist for a people’s choice award in the Netherlands. She is a fiction track and workshop teacher at writers conferences. An artist and musician, she’ll also be found hiking the Colorado Rocky Mountain trails near her home where she lives with her husband, pets, extended family, and wildlife.

“We never did play tea parties like other girls. We played detective. Because that’s what Mercedes read, detective stories. And she was our Sherlock Holmes.

As children, our ventures were harmless enough. Until the day Simone fell in the river and disappeared.”

No words yesterday, after that word count, and it being a Sunday,

I gave my brain a break from the story. Going for 3K today.

“I’ve always had voices—er, stories in my head. I once said I should write them all down so someone could write them someday. I had no idea at the time that someone was me!”

BLOGWORDS – Sunday 17 September 2017 – FRONT PORCH FELLOWSHIP – SANCTUARY

FRONT PORCH FELLOWSHIP – SANCTUARY

 

Holy Spirit spoke to me the other night. “Stop fighting,” He said. Striving might have been a better word, but He used fighting.

 

I’ve lost track of the times I’ve seen a Scripture reference to “rest” in some form or another. Proverbs 3:5-6—you know, the one that says trust in Him?—has been in front of my face countless times.

 

And then… then there was the blog, oh so short-n-sweet, that talked about how the blog was suffering because its owner was on a writing deadline. See that? Writing deadline.

 

And the other blog, the one that was way too in-my-face about over commitment.

 

So, with that said, I hereby pull back from over commitment and over-blogging. And I, uh, rest in Him. Oh, and I’m writing. Lots.

“We never did play tea parties like other girls. We played detective. Because that’s what Mercedes read, detective stories. And she was our Sherlock Holmes.

As children, our ventures were harmless enough. Until the day Simone fell in the river and disappeared.”

 

            had a couple of rough days this week, part of the RA I hate the most…

 

and since I missed posting yesterday, due to writing mode and other related tasks, Thursday wasn’t too shabby for coming out of malaise as I was…

 

 

*warning! teaser statement: Cover Reveal isn’t for a few weeks yet (early November – sorry) but my Photo Shop guru has Scarlett just about perfect – and she looks AMAZING on her cover!!!

 

 

“I’ve always had voices—er, stories in my head. I once said I should write them all down so someone could write them someday. I had no idea at the time that someone was me!”

THE BLURB:  

Are you a writer at heart? How can you tell? And if you are, how do you go about composing and selling the next Great American Novel? WRITER OFF THE LEASH answers these questions and more–all in an easy to understand, tongue-in-cheek style. This is more than a how-to book. It’s a kick in the pants for anyone who wants to write but is stymied by fear, doubt, or simply doesn’t know how to take their writing to the next level. Award-winning author MICHELLE GRIEP blows the lid off stodgy old-school rulebooks and makes it clear that writing can–and should–be fun.

 

THE FIRST LINE:

When I tell people I’m a writer, I immediately get “the look.

 

MY THOUGHTS:  

A how-to written as only Michelle Griep can write it, witty and snarky, knowledgeable and fun, it lays out the basics of being an author.

 

GENRE:

Reference, Writing Skills, Research and Publishing Guides

 

STARS:

Five, of course
