Of Sound Mind and Someone Else’s Body…“Are you man enough to be a woman?”

Saturday, April 20th, 2019
Of
Sound Mind and Someone Else’s Body
by
William Quincy Belle
Genre:
SciFi Romantic Comedy
 
Alan
Maitland is a successful businessman on his way up the corporate
ladder. Life is good, but life is also full of the unexpected. A
scientific experiment goes awry and Alan’s mind is transferred to
the body of Hana Toussaint, a high-class escort. Suddenly, he must
not only contend with a new identity, but with the eye-opening
experience of living as a female: how to walk in high heels without
falling; how to put on a bra without dislocating a shoulder; how to
deal with makeup without poking out an eye; and how to get along in a
society which in many ways is still male-dominated.

 

 

When
Alan discovers that Hana has taken over his body, the two of them
must work together to find the scientist who can reverse the
experiment and give them back their respective lives. Along the way,
they must cope with living as each other and learn what it’s like to
be a member of the opposite sex. And as their adventure goes on, Alan
the woman must figure out his growing feelings for Hana the
man.

 

 

Alan
faces the biggest challenge of his life which Hana sums up with one
decisive question:

 

 

“Are
you man enough to be a woman?”

William
Quincy Belle is just a guy. Nobody famous; nobody rich; just some guy
who likes to periodically add his two cents worth with the hope,
accounting for inflation, that $0.02 is not over evaluating his
contribution. He claims that at the heart of the writing process is
some sort of (psychotic) urge to put it down on paper and likes to
recite the following, which so far he hasn’t been able to attribute
to anyone: “A writer is an egomaniac with low self-esteem.”
You will find Mr. Belle’s unbridled stream of consciousness floating
around in cyberspace.

Holiday
Hijinks
Halliday
Theater #1
by
Katherine Moore
Genre:
Cozy Holiday Romance
 
It’s
Christmas, and this year Emily Halliday is trying something new at
the struggling revival movie theater she runs for her
great-grandmother. After all, how many times can you show It’s a
Wonderful Life
?
Emily
was hoping to make a little profit on “Holiday Hijinks,” her
“counter-programming Christmas” event. What she never
expected—plot twist—is that an unexpected guest will turn her own
life into a romantic comedy.
Holiday
Hijinks
is the first in a new series of cozy romances set in the
small Pacific Northwest town of Silver Birch, Washington. A short
read (15K) for a busy time, Holiday Hijinks introduces a whole
new cast of characters while bringing back “cameos” from the
“Meredith Manor Hotel” books, which are also set in Silver Birch.
If
you love movies and food and romance as cozy as flannel jammies,
Holiday Hijinks is the Christmas read for you.

HOLIDAY HIJINKS: Halliday Theater #1 by Katherine Moore is a cute and nice, Holiday Contemporary Romance. It has the charm of old town USA and the glitter of a big city. The characters are fun, realistic and you can identify with them. It is a Christmas romance to enjoy anytime.

Emily is ready to help in her grandmother’s theater, but not with the regular Christmas movies…. She wants to rock the stage with new ones.  She has plans that make Grandma nervous. But, if they are to keep the theater open, sacrifices need to be made. All seems fine until a wild man comes to town and scares the people and Emily has to fix it. After all she invited him…. Behind him, another charming gentleman comes to help, and he catches her eyes. This Christmas may bring more changes than new Christmas movies to the town of Silver Birch.

 
Born
in Washington, D.C., Katherine Moore now lives in a small Pacific
Northwest town very much like Silver Birch. She has worked as a food
writer, a caterer, and a movie extra as well as a freelance lifestyle
reporter and staff writer for magazines in Honolulu, Los Angeles, and
Richmond, Virginia.

Will Kathryn’s warmth and beauty melt George’s cold heart?

Monday, December 3rd, 2018

 

Lauraine Henderson lives with her husband, dog and cat on 68 acres of woodland 40 miles north of Portland, Oregon. After growing up in Oregon, they moved their family of three children to Utah. From there they moved to Hawaii and Arizona, finally coming back to Oregon in 2015. Their three children, two girls and a boy are all grown and live across the United States. 
 
After being a professional bookkeeper for over twenty years, she turned her hobby of writing into her first published novel in 2016. She loves to write inspirational romance and romantic comedy and hopes her readers will be both entertained and uplifted by her stories. When she’s not writing, she’s working her way through online university, loves to paint (watercolors, oils, and acrylics), sew, knit, crochet, make beaded jewelry, and read (of course!).
George Stone can’t wait for the Christmas season to be over and his employees, especially his executive assistant, Kathryn Gleason, focused once again on their work. When a missing report requires George to stop in at Kathryn’s parents’ home the day before Christmas Eve, he ends up as an unexpected guest. Between the haunting journals of his late grandfather and the unsettling dream of an unhappy future, George is swept away by the magic of Kathryn’s charm and her family’s love. 
 

 

Will the Spirit of Christmas show George the happiness he’s missing and will Kathryn’s warmth and beauty melt his cold heart?
 
 
 
 

 

Snippet:
Had she ever seen George’s eyes sparkle like that? Maybe when he’d been
angry. But he wasn’t angry now and Kathryn pulled in a deep breath as she found
herself drawn into George’s deep brown eyes and matched their intensity.
Time slowed. “Oh!” Kathryn’s foot slipped and she fell back, landing
softly in the cold blanket of white. George relinquished his snowball, followed
her into the snow, and held himself above her while he shook cold, white
crystals from his knit hat over her face.
“Stop! Please. You win.” Kathryn laughed. “I give!”
“What do you give, Kathryn? What do I win?”
George asked so seriously, Kathryn had to look carefully to make sure
he was still teasing.
“What do you want, George?” Flirting wasn’t really her style, but he
brought out the tease in her.
George’s eyes flitted over her face, stopping at her eyes and then
moving on to her mouth. Her lips parted of their own accord and George leaned
in.
“Oomph!” George grunted when three little bodies all jumped on him and
pushed him against Kathryn. “I’m sorry. Are you hurt?” he asked in her ear,
barely above a whisper.
“I’m great,” she answered, the eyes glimmering back at him with
unfulfilled promises.
George licked his lips and pushed the kids off his back. Kathryn was
fairly certain she heard him say, “Later,” before he turned and pretended to
attack his assailants.

Exit Signs for you and me…

Thursday, February 9th, 2017
Exit
Signs
by
Patrice Locke
Genre:
Romantic Comedy
 
Researcher
Tracy Price is trying to find a dead writer and forget a live
musician.
Rock
star Jesse Elliot is sure Tracy is demented, and she believes he
wouldn’t recognize the truth in a lineup of Bibles. Their only hope
is to stop trying to read each other’s minds and start speaking
their own.
Anyone
who has ever had a crush, felt betrayed, or been forgiven will
appreciate Tracy’s struggle to claim the life she never knew she
wanted. 
Goodreads * Amazon
Jesse lunged toward me. It was too late. I had already launched. He reached out but
didn’t connect. Instead, I broke the trajectory of my upper body by
grabbing him at chest level and sliding down. He was pushed backward
into the table, which stabilized our ungainly host-parasite tableau.
He softened my landing so that physically I was fine, but my pride
was ready for intensive care. 
Heaped at his feet, like a demented penitent, I hugged his knees, my face pressed flat
into his thighs. I might as well stay down. What’s worse? To
stand up and face you, or remain here, nestled between your legs?
What do you think?
Then, the finishing touch: I erupted into
nervous, snorting laughter. He guessed there was no serious injury. 
“It’s nice to see you, too. You are okay, aren’t you? Can you stand?” He
reached for my arms to unwrap them from his legs and help me up. I
jammed my eyelids together to conjure up a do-over, but no such
luck. 
I would have to deal with it. 
He held my elbows in his hands. “I guess we were both in a hurry to see each other.” 
I do appreciate your attempt to lighten the mood, but you are standing SO close. I
can feel your body heat. Or is that mine? By the way, you smell tart
and fresh, like a lime.
 
I stared at his shoulder. My dignity meter was stuck on empty. 
“Enthusiastic greeting. Thanks for that.” He was blatantly amused. 
“It was nothing.”
I stepped backward to regain a semblance of independence. Don’t
mock me. But, you did go to all the trouble to bring your hair. And
your eyes. I might forgive you for witnessing my disgrace. That
hair.
 
 
 
As
a journalist, Patrice Locke wrote a lot of stories with unhappy and
even tragic endings.
Facts are facts, and a writer doesn’t mess with facts.
But fiction is another world. Patrice began writing novels, where she can
control the endings and make them as happy as she wants. The best
thing about fiction, she says, is having time to think before her
characters speak, so they can say the things most of us only come up
with after the perfect moment has passed.
She loves to write, read, and watch romantic comedies where life always
turns out the way it should. Her only obsessive relationships are
with semicolons and Oxford commas.
Though she doesn’t like to brag, Patrice is an award-winning artist. She won
a gold and diamond watch when she was 13 for decorating a turkey
drumstick bone to look like Batman. Alas, that was her last
recognition in the fine arts.
Patrice lives in Albuquerque, New Mexico, not far from her daughter Kaitlin,
eight hours from her son Trevor, and way too many miles from amazing
grandsons Alexander and Zackary.

The Wrong Side of Magic ???

Thursday, November 17th, 2016
Hudson Brown stopped believing in magic long ago. That is, until the day he is whisked away to the magical land of Logos by a curious compass given to him by his off-beat neighbor, Charlotte.


Hudson discovers that Logos is a land ruled by words, thoughts, and memories. A fairy might ferry you across the river for the price of one memory. But be sure to look out for snarky unicorns, as they will see through those who are not pure of heart.

Not understanding the many rules of Logos, Hudson is quickly saddled with a troll curse. Charlotte, who, along with her father, was banished from Logos, can help get rid of the curse–but only if he agrees to find the lost Princess of Logos in return.

 
 
 
 
 

 

Janette Rallison/ CJ Hill writes books because writing is much more fun than cleaning bathrooms.  Her avoidance of housework has led her to writing 26 novels that have sold over 1,000,000 print copies and have been on many reading and state lists. Her books are fantasy, sci-fi, and romantic comedy because hey, there is enough angst in real life, but there’s a drastic shortage of humor, romance and hot guys who fight dragons. She lives in Arizona with her husband, kids, and enough cats to classify her as eccentric.

Top Ten List about Janette

 

1) She writes books instead of doing housework. (This is only fun if you’re the one ignoring the dishes.)

2) She has five kids and is still (mostly) sane.

3) Her favorite book as a child was The Phantom Tollbooth. It’s the reason she wrote The Wrong Side of Magic. She wanted to do a book with fun word play and fantasy characters

4) She had a crush on Richard Hatch (Apollo from Battlestar Galactica) and so if she’s describing a brown-haired hero in one of her romance novels. yeah, it’s probably him.

5) She can’t say no to a stray cat, if the ones residing in her back yard are any indication

6) Double-jointed elbows

7) Has a collection of dolls, teacups, and china–proving that her inner child is a Victorian old lady

8) Has seen every version of Pride and Prejudice ever filmed. (The full-length BBC one is the best.)

9) Was born on her grandmother’s birthday.

10) Is the mother of the Odd1sOut creator

Love under Construction

Love Under Construction blurb

What do you do when your boss makes someone else the lead on a big renovation project that should rightfully be yours? You quit. On second thought, that might not be the best idea, but Charlee Jackson has never been one for second thoughts. Instead, she lands a big contract of her own. She’s jumping into her new life—work boots, tool belt and all. Now she just needs to form a company and hire contractors and buy supplies and get an office and not fall in love with her former boss’s son. Yeah. Definitely not that last one.

51a+BEDXopL._SX336_BO1,204,203,200_

You can’t date someone who works for you, but now that his dad let Charlee walk out the door, Peter Elliot is considering his options. Charlee was their top renovation expert, his best friend’s sister, and the only thing that made the drudgery of running a large construction business bearable. But how do you date a competitor, especially one your father is trying to drive out of business? It would be stupid to make your dad angry right before he retires and hands the company over to you. Right?

When Charlee and Peter are scheduled to work on the same Indulgence Row house, their feelings and priorities are put to the test. They need to make a choice, and they better be quick about it, because the whole mixture is curing fast and threatening to crumble to pieces.

My Review: 5 stars

Love Under Construction by Danyelle Ferguson is a delightful clean romance that will help you escape your life for a few hours. It is the kind of book that you want to read on a lazy day with a cool drink in the summer or a hot cocoa in the winter. Either way you will find it a great escape from your everyday life. The ending will make you say “Ohhhhhhhhh” and sigh.

Love Under Construction is a great story about two normal people that need to sort out their feelings for each other and their personal ghosts. It is fun to see how Charlee, the main character grows and the different things she learns and the progress she had during the telling. Peter also has some growing to do, and they need to learn how to relate to each other.

Being her own boss means a lot of pressure falls on Charlee’s shoulders. This is a pressure that heightens when she discovers that Peter, her brother’s best friend, may have feelings for her. However, the problem only arises when Peter’s father comes between them, out of revenge, and pandemonium breaks loose.

Love Under Construction is a clean book even for YA, but it is intended for adults. Enjoy…
