My Personal Review for The Love God of Indian Frybread by AJ Llewellyn

Image
First I got to say A. J. Llewellyn is one wickedly wonderful author. He has humor, sex and romance all rolled up with a pretty bow for his legions of readers. I love this author's work and when I found out I won his latest book, The Love God of Indian Frybread, I jumped around like a loon on crack in glee.

Ever Beleno loves Hollywood Memorabilia and Mummies. When he gets a chance to go to the sold out Mummies of the world exhibit at the local museum, he jumps at it...even if it with handsome but aggravating Chris Coelho. When he gets there, he finds himself coming back to one particular mummy....one that looks so lost.

He was enjoying himself until he feels someone touching him but when he looks, there is no one around. Could it be Chris doing the groping? Ever isn't sure and that is only the begining of Ever's night. Now the craziness continues when he gets home and Ever has to figure out what happened to Chris, because this sweet, sexy man isn't the annoying one he w…

WRITER'S WRITE...WRITING PARTNERS FEUD

EVEN AN ARMADILLO NEEDS LOVE
By:
Angelica Hart and Zi



The singular most important emotion a human spirit craves is to be loved. It seeks it out. It needs it. It craves it. Walk into any book store and check out the romance section, it dominates. There is a reason for that which isn't just about sensual romance. It goes back to that basic need that we long to be loved. There are many romances that play down the aspects of sexuality, take that of a story about a boy and his armadillo, a generational family saga, even a story about war, all play the emotional gambit yet somewhere in each, you will find love, be it for a pet, a child, or your country.

The further we are from love, of feeling loved, of being loved, the more isolated we become, cynical sometimes, and at its worse a life without being loved can poison the body. The closer any emotion comes to love, the more that emotion vitalizes and nourishes the body. Negative emotions seep into our spirit and spread emotional dis…

Why don't you start us off by telling us how you discovered/decided you wanted to become a writer?

I've always been a storyteller. I used to make up things all the times as a kid. I've read romance novels since high school. My mom never really said much about me reading them so I devoured everything I could find. In 2008, I was between jobs and this story kept tapping at my brain so I sat down and wrote it. The book is titled Texas Lady. After several friends read it and told me I needed to get it published, I figured what the heck.

Do you have a favorite TV show you can't miss? I rarely watch television these days, but one show I like is Ghost Hunters. I'm a sucker for ghosts.

Why don't you start us off by telling us how you discovered/decided you wanted to become a writer?  First let me say thank you for having me here today. I first started writing when I was in the fourth grade and had to write a play which the teacher thought was so good she produced it for parents, etc. I have written short stories since then.

Do you have a favorite TV show you can't miss? I love Criminal Minds and NCIS. I usually have to DVR them and watch them later.

What is your writing process? Do you outline, fly by the seat of your pants or a combination of both? I do a little of both. In the beginning I outline and describe my main characters then start writing the book. The characters and their alter egos usually take over from there. So what is your latest or upcoming book about? Give us all the details behind this masterpiece. Deadly Revenge is the second book in the series about human trafficking. It begins with the heroine going home to the North Carolina Mo…

Can Quentin and Nate use their telepathic gifts to build a relationship that will survive an unfriendly world?

Quentin Quasar has found that being a telepath is a mixed bag: it’s great when he’s catching an unfaithful spouse or tracking down a thief, but it’s horrible when his bedmate is thinking unflattering thoughts during sex. It’s no wonder that instead of saying his prayers every night, Quentin sends tendrils of thought out into the world, looking for another telepath to ease the loneliness. Imagine his surprise when he finds one—and the young man needs help!

Nate Braddock was plenty panicked at being kidnapped by fanatics who planned to “beat the devil” out of him. With Quentin’s help, and then his partnership, Nate finds the courage to take a stand against his mother’s religious intolerance and together they’ll confront an uncomfortable truth: telepaths may not b…

Static by L. A. Witt

Damon Bryce is worried sick when he doesn’t hear from his girlfriend after she visits her estranged parents, but when he checks up on her, he’s in for the shock of his life: She’s a shifter, part of a small percentage of the population who can shift genders at will. Thanks to her parents, though, she’s been forcibly given an implant that leaves her static – unable to shift – and male.
Alex Nichols desperately wants the implant removed, but getting it out isn’t nearly as easy as putting it in. The surgery is expensive and dangerous. Left in, the implant carries its own set of risks, with the potential to cripple or even kill him. On top of that, he’s carefully kept his identity a secret from more people in his life than just Damon, and his parents aren’t the only ones appalled by shifters.
Stripped of half his identity and facing serious physical effects and social ramifications, Alex needs Damon more than ever, but he doesn’t see how their relationship can …

Can you tell us a little about how you started writing; was it something you have always wanted to do?
I have been writing since I could hold pencil to paper (incorrectly as it turned out, which is why I still have a callus on my right ring finger).  As an adolescent I of course wrote interminable sappy poems, some of which were actually published.  I turned to stories as a young adult, and even a couple of novels.  But I suffered from “submission anxiety” and never got beyond sending queries.  Then a few years ago I had the luxury of a six-month hiatus when I was laid up and finished, sent, and sold my first book, Lost in His Arms. Thank God for on-line submissions!
What do you consider to be the key elements of a great story?
First, characters must be believable—by which I mean characters who don’t act out of character and who have a modicum of intelligence so you don’t spend more time rolling your eyes than reading.  Second, description must be fresh, rich, and integral to the action…
