Jane Dougherty Writes

This post is something of a blast from the past, or possibly the start of another series of guest post.

My guest today is Jane Routley whose novel, The Three Sisters, was released recently. This is from Jane’s press release.

The Three Sisters by Jane Routley


Historical Fantasy with feisty female Characters

“A captivating read” Sara Douglass

Yani, warrior woman, brave, strong, able to pass as a man, who will do anything to find Elena. Marigoth, powerful female mage, determined never to grow up, equally committed to finding their missing sister. In a country oppressed and cruelly ruled, the fate of many people lies in the unsuspecting hands of these three women.

MY REVIEW: Oyster A boy with potential By Rosalind Minett

Catherine Rose Putsche Book Blog

A boy with potential
By Rosalind Minett
This is an outstanding short story that I managed to devour in just one sitting. Rarely does an author so courageously expose truths, realities and day-to-day struggles of a boy who finds it difficult to fit in to society.
Jake tells us his disturbing story from a first person narrative which gives the reader a real insight in to his tangled thoughts and feelings that you can somehow sympathise with him and understand his unbalanced mind, while nervously anticipating what he will do next. Jake has quite the back story, as he comes from a dysfunctional family who put his safety, health and wellbeing at risk which results in him being moved from one adoptive family to another before he ends up in the Home and yet another Home before he commits his greatest atrocity in his short life so far.

“Dog Bone Soup is the poignant tale of a dysfunctional family struggling to survive in America in the 50s and 60s, when most others were on the crest of a wave.

Chris The Story Reading Ape: The Man, The Ape, The Legend…

The Linden Chronicles


Chris The Story Reading Ape…Whaaaat?

When I first encountered Chris Graham, the man behind “The Story Reading Ape” I inquired as to what in the world was a story reading ape and how did he come up with that name?  He politely referred me to his about tsra page to explain the circumstances of his unique designation in the Blogosphere.  After all, everyone has to develop  their own brand…right?

On one of my next encounters with Chris, he introduced me to his favorite “characters” who back up his really mean emails reminding authors to send him their stories so that he can feature them on his blog.  At this point, I really became curious as to what this cyber person was all about!  As you can imagine, I in fact raised an eyebrow when he sent me this!!


As I continued to read on, I learned that Chris Graham…

The Big One…………………..Chapter 36

Untold Stories

The sound of the explosion of a couple days back was still on Abe Yoder’s mind but he never mentioned it to little Emily. Life was hard enough for the three year old little girl without troubling her any further. She seemed to be adjusting to her new living situation very well but there were times at night that Abe could hear her mutter in her sleep for her mother and father. Abe remembered his old Amish grandpa say that you could take the boy out of the country, but not the country out of the boy. This saying he was sure would hold true just the same for a little girl and her family. The morning was warm and sunny as Abe watched Dave and his girlfriend head off up the ridge. Emily had been wanting to explore for a number of days now and so Abe decided to…

Dracula Untold – thoughts and review, Oh My . . .

The Light-Bearer Series by Emily Guido

10616252_307722532746559_1630660148443650798_nOkay, I believe I’m a Paranormal Romance Connoisseur.

Others would say I’m freak about the genre.

However, I choose to believe that we all have little quirks. This is mine.

I love Paranormal Romance!

I religiously read novels, watch movies and TV, and even go to plays of the Paranormal Romance genre.

So, with that little bit of embarrassing fact being divulged, I’m going to share with you my experience from watching the new movie, DRACULA UNTOLD.

Art-Parkinson-Luke-Evans-Dracula-Untold-VladI really loved the premise of this movie. Instead of the regular, run of mill evil Dracula . . . this Draculahad a mammoth cause to conquer.

The relationship he has with his wife and child is loving and downright heartwarming.

dracula-untold-5Yes, and I was brought to welling up as the story developed between the family.

This story of Dracula was not of selfishness or wanton evil, it was about being able…
