The greatest game is a philosophical work of fiction, and it’s about human life and finding meaning within that existence. The author believes that we have paid the price for the intelligence we gained and become ignorant towards what is right and wrong.

The Necessity of a Winter Solstice in the life of a Writer by Boshra Rasti Ghalati

It was during what must have been the tenth time playing Uno ( in the middle of another COVID lockdown) with my nine-year-old daughter, that my mother called. If you are familiar with Persian mothers you’ll know that my first thoughts — even as a 40-year-old woman, were: What have I done now?

Getting started – the newbie authors guide to living the dream! by Craig Deegan

Advertisements

Every author had to start somewhere. They all had to sit down and jotted down their opening sentence. No doubt with shaking hands and riddled with fear, but they did it anyway. And guess what?   They’re people, just like us.  They’re no different.  They just had an idea that they wanted to share.

We are our own worst critic by Dennis Scheel

Advertisements

During our writing escapades, we often encounter criticism from friends, and even worse, from reviewers. That criticism can encapsulate everything from a scene to characters to our writing style itself. You may encounter some bitter individuals who just want to attack your work for no clear reason. I encountered this once, where someone first submitted a five-star review of my book, only to change it to one star… but what can you do? You may have heard writers say that you haven’t ‘made it as a writer’ until your first one-star review. Well, I experienced this early on (heh). The worst thing you can do is reply to it!

Don’t Touch That! by James Scott

As I said in earlier posts, believability is one of the three most important things for successful SciFi writing.  You got to think that what the person is doing in the story is something you might do in the same situation.   Or better still, is it something that makes common sense?

Lost on the Edge of Eternity by Jonathan Floyd (Book Review #1090)

Advertisements

Lost on the edge of eternity is a paranormal thriller for the young adult generation. The story begins when Brownville high counselor, Bill Fellars, meets Randy Galphin, a dead former student. Randy mentions that he and his friends are stuck between the two worlds and need his help.

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Fellar’s personality really shines in this book as he has to decide if and how he is meant to help Randy. However, the endeavour does not stop there; there are a few unfinished businesses he feels should be settled as well.

I found it intriguing to see how Fellars felt cautious not to talk about what he saw and discerning if he was taken to the psychiatric ward. The literature is unpredictable, and there are moments where you feel like you didn’t see that coming. This definitely added to the thriller nature of things.

I look forward to reading more from this author and recommend this book to paranormal story lovers.
