Planting herself deep within the club's inner circle, Charlie came to Chisolm with one goal in mind An unknown hatred fuels her mission to take them down. Pairing herself up with one of the club's bad boy's, the M. Once inside the club she had been eyeing from afar, she comes to realizes things are very different from what she had imagined them to be.
Villainizing the group as a whole for an injustice that was done to her many years earlier no longer seemed to fit with growing attachments and relationships she was forming. And then there's Clink. He may very well be the wild card thrown into the mix that derailed Charlie's plans from the get go. Originally, serving as nothing but a way in to the club, and a body to warm her sheets at night, Clink has thrown Charlie for a loop. Determined from an early age to never need a man, Charlie can't help but find herself drawn to him in a carnal and ethereal way. She's tried to fight it, to deny it, but it was in vain.
He calls her sugar A chance twist of luck placed Charlie right in the middle of club politics, where she was able to help free the club's Vice President, Jay, from serving time for murder he did not commit, but willingly confessed to in Book 2. I did read this to the end, because the main character had her own conflicts, which propelled the story enough for me.
Most of the other characters tended to appear rather flat, but Naheli had her own complexities. I like how she wavered between her determination to be the Sacrifice, and to not be the Sacrifice. This one, while having an excellent premise, failed to deliver on character development. Elizabeth Bennet accepts Mr Collins' proposal out of duty to her father and Mr Darcy realises he's obsessed with her after all. Unfortunately, that's about all the character development that happens.
Darcy's obsession doesn't develop, wax or wane. Elizabeth puts up with Collins until he decides to break the engagement. I almost wanted her to gird up her loins and start slaying zombies, but nothing so exciting happens. Why: Excellent blend of steampunk and magic. Complex characters, imaginative worldbuilding and an easy-to-read style that carries you along. It was an interesting look into the peasant life of Pre-revolutionary China. As her books have appeared on my Kobo list, at really good prices, I've been buying and reading them up.
Unfortunately, while this one started out as expected, the plot fizzled out toward's the end. I think she could have ditched the story of the daughter who went away, and just stayed with the main character. I enjoy reading them, but I tend to forget about most of them after the final page. This one had an interesting enough plot with a heroine who writes scandalous fiction in her diary.
Naturally, the diary gets lost, and wacky hijinks ensue. Worth reading once. Finish or Forget: Forget. Got to chapter eleven, and couldn't stand the company of the characters any longer. Why: They felt too contemporary, like the popular kids in high school. Not my tribe. Didn't really want to know how their HEA turned out.
It's like everything is hand-placed in front of Our Heroine Ceres so she can succeed. I don't get any sense of anything happening because of her own actions, nor did I get enough sense of the consequences for her choices. It's almost as if she's drunk too much felix felices.
The other characters feel flat. Labels: book reviews , fantasy , romance , science fiction. Tuesday, 18 July The Curse of Time. No, I'm not talking about lack thereof. That happens to us all. Recently I've been hanging out on Twitter for pitch parties and the such. Alas, most of the fun on Twitter happens when the US is awake. That's my middle of the night.

When we need to conduct business with Adelaide, Sydney, Auckland, London or New York, we've got to deal with different time zones. Daylight Savings Time, that leftover dinosaur from a time when most people did not have electric lights and the Internet, is useless in the 21st Century.
Spring Forward and Fall Back does no one any favours, and causes more problems than it solves. But I'm not here to rant about DST. It's your own bad luck if you live in a DST Zone. DST can change. It can be legislated out of existence.

I'm talking about things that governments can't change: science. Planet is round. You are on one side, I am on the other. If you're a diurnal creature like me, chances are we won't be awake at the same time. This bums me out. This affects my professional life. My ideal work day would be to get up early, get about four hours' writing time done, then spend the warm afternoon in promo and socialising. But I can't, because most of my audience is asleep during my afternoon.
If I am to be social and interact with everyone, I've got to do it first thing, before everyone goes to bed. Scheduling tweets and blogposts doesn't do me any good, because I'm not there to interact. This is not an ideal schedule, as I'd much rather spend my more brain-awake hours working on great novels, not marvelling at the witty sayings of social media. Going nocturnal for the sake of my career isn't an option at this point, as I still have children at home.

I see lots of authors having great networking success because of Twitter. It's a shame I can't take full advantage of its power simply because I'm on the wrong side of the planet. She gets paid a living wage and does not need to fear that one little medical issue could send her bankrupt.

G'day mate. But I'm not completely dinky-di, as I was born in the US; howdy. Being a dual citizen has its advantages and disadvantages. Chapter One I'm Heidi Kneale and this is my bio. Yep, I'm obnoxious. I write Fantasy and Romance, usually blending the two. I'm currently published with a reputable small press as you do when you're a Romance author and have recently gone hybrid as you do when you're a 21st Century author. Now's the time to take my game to the next level. I've learned much along my publishing journey, enough to know I wanna join all my published mates from the OWW who've done rather well for themselves.
I have a fifty-year career plan. This includes getting an agent and getting published by some Random Penguins.

PitchWars could be that one thing that helps me take that next step. So here I am, hoping to impress a mentor, then impress an agent. Many faces of me?
