About the Book

mummys-little-angelJoanne didn’t believe that her life could become worse than it already was. She had lost everybody and everything she had loved. She was alone. Surely she had suffered enough? The press had called her identical twins psychopaths. Her Maggie. Her Annie. But she still loved them, even though one of them had killed her husband, Jeff. Joanne believed that his murder had been an accident. How could one of her girls be a murderer? She knew them better than anybody else. They were good girls really.

She just had to prove it.

The brutal murder of her god-daughter Laura had never been solved. Items were missing when Laura’s remains had been discovered: clues that could lead to the capture of her killer. One of them was Laura’s doll … the doll that Joanne later discovered in her home. Joanne is facing the most horrific dilemma of her life. Has the wrong woman been imprisoned? Could her child have used such brutality against her best friend? Or could both women be innocent after all?

She needs to find somebody for her daughter to confide in; somebody she will trust. She needs a miracle. There is only one person who can help. He is compassionate and caring, with an amazing ability to gain the trust of the most difficult patients. He is Joanne’s only hope. He is Jonathan Davies.

by JW Lawson

Once upon a time …

I had a dream. That dream was to publish my book. The book I’d been working on for many years. The book I’d created in my mind when I was just nineteen. The book I was too frightened to complete – for fear that I would be judged, criticised, even laughed at. I stopped writing and concentrated on my career and, along the way, I met many amazing people …

“Before my accident, I was a professional diver,” he said. “ I broke my neck in a diving accident which resulted in me becoming a paraplegic. But, that hasn’t stopped me at all! In fact, I’ve just sailed the world, despite my disability. And, I’m helping many others to achieve their dreams in the same way that I have.”

A beautiful, young woman directs her wheelchair towards me and smiles. “Yes, I’m going to learn how to sail,” she whispers. I bend down so that I can hear her soft voice. She moves her long, blonde hair away from her face and her eyes widen. “I’m so excited. I really didn’t believe that I’d have the confidence to do this, but I have … thanks to this hospital and the friends I’ve made here. I will sail. I will have a future and I will qualify as a doctor … someday. Her eyes fill with tears. I pass her a tissue but instead of feeling self-pity, she tells me her story. “I am the lucky one. My three friends were killed instantly in the crash and me? I am blessed. I didn’t even suffer from a scratch. It’s Ironic that the ambulance didn’t see me and ran over me isn’t it?” I don’t know what to say, where to look even. Her pretty blue eyes meet mine. “I had to stop studying for a while, but thanks to this wonderful rehab unit, I’m ready now to move on and make my dreams come true.”

The television cameras focus on the patients as they are assisted into the wheelchair accessible vehicle our Company built. I’m bursting with pride. Not for me but for them. Each and every person sitting in this vehicle has an amazing story to tell. Each and every one of them inspires me.

The following week, I meet another customer. The journalists are there, along with fifty trustees from a Charity and many dignitaries. He struggles out of his wheelchair, stands up, and taps on the microphone. Despite a speech impediment, he delivers a moving speech. Despite his profound disabilities, he smiles for the camera and thanks me for helping his dream come true. As humbled as I am with his kind compliments, I feel a fraud.

I finished my book and wrote another. And someday, the author who was scared of being laughed at … or judged, will write another book. A factual book based on the lives of the amazing people she has met who are simply grateful to be here and still have dreams. I genuinely hope that they all come true.

About the Book

01_PF_OverEasy_R19Allie Parker’s had enough. Just because she’s a dog groomer, her overachieving family of doctors and lawyers treats her like a child. She’s convinced that a successful husband is all she needs to change their attitudes. So when she and her friends come up with a brilliant new way to meet eligible men, Allie squeezes into her sister’s stylish clothes and sneaks into continental breakfast at an upscale hotel to find herself the perfect guy.

Before Allie has taken her last bite of syrup-laden waffle, she’s met the man of her dreams. But what she doesn’t know is that he’s a jewel thief who mistakenly thinks she’s his contact—and so does everyone else who’s after his stash of diamonds.

Suddenly Allie’s world is crazily upended. And as she scrambles to prove her innocence and get back to her old life, she discovers happily ever after sneaks up when you least expect it.

Book Review

Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy of Over Easy by Pamela Ford for the purpose of an honest review.

It was an absolute pleasure to read Over Easy by Pamela Ford. This is a book that captured my attention and held it from cover to cover. It had plenty of action including manhunting, sleuthing, and lots of laughter!

Ms. Ford has created a cast of characters that is easy to relate to, then you mix in a trio of furry friends and the story is bound to get a little wild!

I love that Over Easy is the first book in a series so I can get my fix for The Continental Breakfast Club in pretty short order! You should pick up a copy. I think you’ll be very pleased with your purchase!

I definitely recommend Over Easy by Pamela Ford and give it five steaming hot cups of Room With Books coffee.

Author Q&A

author banner

What made you write a book about women sneaking into hotel continental breakfasts to try to meet eligible men?

I was at a continental breakfast several years ago, minding my own business of course, when I spotted a good looking guy in a suit eating breakfast alone. Suddenly the question, “What if. . .” popped into my head and the story idea was born. I started writing the series in third person, but quickly switched to first person because it seemed a more natural way to show the central character’s personality—and quirks.

If you are a mom writer, how do you balance your time?

My youngest child is now in college, so I have much more time to devote to writing. But balancing that time is still difficult because my daughters call 75 times a day. Okay, I’m exaggerating, but they call a lot—when they’re walking home from class or going to work or bored or making cookies or. . .

What is your favorite travel spot?

I don’t have a specific favorite spot, but I really like water—lakes, oceans, ponds, rivers. . .even puddles! If there’s a body of water nearby, I’ll like the vacation.

What childhood books inspired you to want to write books?

I was a voracious reader as a kid, so I think that libraries in general are what inspired me to write. For a while we lived in an area serviced by a Bookmobile, and I can still remember what it felt like to go to the Bookmobile every Saturday morning. I discovered The Black Stallion series on the bookmobile, which was like getting a gift since I was a city girl who was always begging my parents for a horse.

If you could go back in time, where would you go?

I don’t know if I would go back, but I’d really like to go forward. I would love to see what the future holds—whether space and interplanetary travel is commonplace and if we will have colonies on other planets.

Where do you write?

I like to shake up where I write because it helps keep my writing from stalling. I’ll write at my desk, or on our three-season porch, or at coffee shops. I really love working in coffee shops that open their exterior windows/walls in nice weather.

Sunborn Rising:

Beneath the Fall

by Aaron Safronoff

 

Sunborn Rising_Beneath the Fall_cover

Sunborn Rising: Beneath the Fall is the best vivid fantasy YA book of the year.”Entrada Publishing

 

Sunborn Rising Winning Art Work

On a distant world of forests floating on an ocean around a star,

a blight threatens to plunge all life into darkness.

But three friends seek the light.

Together, they will Fall and be lost.

And at the very Root of darkness, they will find themselves.

But will it be enough to help them find their way home?

Characters of Sunborn Rising

 

The world of Cerulean

Light and water flow from the ocean into the roots of the Great Trees, up through the boughs, and out over the lush canopy. But the once vibrant treescape has grown dim over generations of arboreal life, and the creatures of the forest have forgotten the light.

Barra, a young, willful Listlespur, finds her late father’s hidden journal, and reads about the old world and the mysterious plague her father believed destroyed it. He wrote that he warned the Elders. He urged them to take action. Those were his last words.

Together with her two best friends, Barra will explore every bark, wood, and leaf of the Great Forest to relight her world and complete her father’s story, even if she has to travel beneath the Fall.

Guest Post

Congratulations, Patricia, on the changes coming to your Room with Books website! I sincerely appreciate your invitation to guest post before you transition to more reviews than tours. Good luck! Okay, let’s get started.

Inspiration is an odd concept. I never seek it out. I don’t know what it would look like if I ever found it. And no one thing has ever been entirely responsible for anything I’ve created. Inspiration is less about “that thing” that inspires, and more about your receptivity to being inspired. While it’s true that an inciting event or sight might affect you tremendously, your insides have to be unlocked and unguarded to experience it. People frequently ask me about my inspirations, and I do my best to answer in a straightforward manner, but having this guest post opportunity, I thought it’d be fun to give a more complete, albeit less straightforward answer: Everything and nothing. From a dust mote hanging just so in a ray of light to firemen rushing headlong into a burning building, on a given day, either could make me weepy — though I’ll never admit to it: *sniff* “Allergies.” On another day, with a syringe full of liquefied emotion plunged straight into my heart, the most effusive response leaving my lips might be, “Ouch.” Hyperbolic maybe, but I think the point is clear. Inspiration depends on me.

External factors definitely matter too, but as collections of moments strung together over time instead of a single instantiating event. Space exploration, rather than walking on the moon. Travelling, instead of that one trip to Germany. So, while stories almost always occur to me as flashes of inspiration, the experiences responsible are varied and numerous, and in that precious flash, they’ve come together in a new way, that I was lucky enough to observe. After all this time of writing, I can unreservedly say that music and stand-up comedy are always close to my heart, and that I’m more open to those forms than any others. I’m listening to Hum, The Very Old Man, right now, and I’m absolutely positive that demarks the end of this post.

Thank you so much for reading, and for indulging in this roundabout explanation. I guess I was inspired. Did anyone see what did it? 😛

Try a New Genre and Win Book Blitz

New Genre Contest Graphic

@BookEnthuPromo

How It Works

This challenge starts on July 2nd, and ends on July 30th, so you have a month to get reading.

PERSUADE US . . .

We’re all different and what we like to read is no exception. However, sometimes it’s fun to change things up a bit and try something new. We’re going to help with that, by giving the first 200 lucky readers to ask us an ebook for free. All we ask is that the book they request is in a genre they don’t read, or read a long time ago and drifted out of.

Each participating author will offer ten books for free (we’ll give you a list of what’s available). But if you don’t manage to get in fast enough and there aren’t any books left, don’t worry, you’re still eligible for the Take a Walk on the Wild Side contest. Find a book in a new-to-you genre, whether at the library, from a friend, or if you want to support the wonderful authors involved in this contest by buying one of their books, so much the better!

Read the book—the contest runs for four weeks, so you’ve got time—then write a paragraph on the contest’s Facebook group about what surprised and delighted you about the genre you just read. You can also include a short paragraph on the genre you usually read and why you love it. Help convince other readers to give a new genre a try!

We’re going to encourage people to like the paragraphs that inspired them to read a new genre, and the five entries with the most likes will go to a well-known book blogger (with names redacted) to choose the winner of the $200 gift card.

BE A CHATTERBOX . . .

This is one place where being a chatterbox will get you sent to the top of the class, not to detention. We want people talking about the books they’re reading, swopping recommendations, and generally connecting over new genres, so we’ve got a $50 gift card prize to the person who interacts the most on the Facebook group.

Good luck, everyone, this is going to be a lot of fun!

And here are the amazing authors involved in sponsoring this contest:

Marilyn Brant
Robin Bielman
Kelsey Browning
Zoe Dawson
Michelle Diener
Cynthia Eden
Jennifer Estep
Misty Evans
Maggie Mae Gallagher
Lori Handeland
Mary Hughes
Shona Husk
Rachel Johns
Dale Mayer
Nancy Naigle
Christina Phillips
Edie Ramer
Elle J Rossi
Barbara Samuel
Therese Walsh

We’ll be posting a profile on each author and the books they have made eligible for the giveaway on the Read a New Genre Facebook group on July 2nd. As stated above, the first 200 people to request the books on offer will get them for free, thereafter, participants will have to source their own books, either from the library, a friend, or if they’d like to support one of the authors sponsoring this contest, so much the better! Only one free book request per person, so as many readers as possible can benefit.
