Nothing could prepare her to be suddenly swept onto a pirate ship by an infamous captain whose interests are a mystery to her. Forced to think on her feet, the silent girl must overcome a lifetime of servitude to survive on a ship where everything is trying to destroy her.As sea monsters, mutinies, and ghosts wreak havoc on the ship and its crew, Levanine realizes that she doesn’t have the luxury of simply surviving until they arrive at Avondella, her continent of redemption. Levanine must decide whether she will die the person she has always been, a meek nobody… or will she make a name for herself at sea?

Dawn Dagger has had a passion for reading and writing ever since she could remember. When she was six she drew and wrote her very own book, and though it hardly makes sense now, she was so proud. She has written many books, short stories, and poems since then, and continues to do so. Dawn placed highly in her two middle school years of Power of the Pen and even has her short story ‘The Haunting’ published in an anthology, She admits she isn’t good at anything physical (except some ballroom dancing), or video games, but she does enjoy a nice game of Mario Kart, a trip fishing, or just a walk in the woods. She has a knack for taking pictures of whatever catches her eye; especially brightly colored flowers. Dawn is a sucker for a good fantasy book, lives off of coffee, and loves her wonderful family and friends, and her dedicated boyfriend, Nevin, who is just like a romance novel character.
Dawn has over 70 stories started (don’t believe her? Just the other night she rattled off the 37 stories she’s actually named and what they’re about to Nevin because he wanted to know) and that doesn’t include short stories or poems. She has lots of writing to do, and is excited for what’s ahead!

I’m not sure I can answer that. I guess it’s a way of expressing and researching issues and parts of life that I’m interested in. I certainly never expected to be obsessed (more…)

Today we have Dorine White the author of The Emerald Ring visiting our blog.

Hello Dorine. What makes you passionate about writing?

I think it is more about the story than the writing. I love amazing plots full of magic and adventure. I sink myself into the stories and just let my imagination fly.

This is a very well told tale, in a made-up world quite different from those fantasy lovers have seen before. It has a well thought out plot with interesting characters, both human and otherwise. I find the writing fluid even when the author chose to make each scene a new chapter. Some readers may find it a touch disconcerting (more…)

Across Eternity by Aris Whittier, review for readersfavorite.com

This author picked a great theme, one that many adults wonder about and would love to read. (more…)
