What have you been working on
My partner and I have been working on a story that I set in Harlan, Kentucky, after riding up there with my uncle to take a tractor trailer load of Christmas gifts to a church there in town. I began the story “Long Cold Winter”, soon after arriving back home. It is the story of a woman named Jessica Robbins who is almost killed by a sadistic serial killer. He chooses his victims out of the phone book and then pursue them relentlessly. When his unsuspecting victim has shown him everything he wants to see, he strikes In deadly fashion. But he has met his match in Jessica. She won’t go down without a fight.
As an Author what does writing mean to you?
Simply put I love to write and create a theme that is enjoyable to read. Nothing gives me more joy than to write a great story or pinning some of the most controversial poetry ever written, and this is just one side of mine, and Jerriann's poetry. On the other hand, we have a soft side as well. We write about anything: from the beauty of a flower to the colonization on the moon. We strive to express our feelings in what we write.
Just Believe is a collection of poems and stories featuring unusual themes, having that sense that one should just believe and not ever give up on hope, or on the belief that much is out there that goes beyond common thought or reasoning, and isn't always easily explained.
Talbot Mc'Near investigates the 50 year old mystery of the double disappearances of Reba and Bradley Delton at their farm which is known to be haunted to those living in Sharps Landing, North Carolina.
What happened all those years ago, and what does a 500 year old ghost of Conquistador Joachim have to do with the Delton missing persons case as well as others that went missing in the area?
this is a very funny and amusing story, and I must say I about laughed my head off and this story I know took a lot of hard work and dedication, on writing a comedy and Jerriann did it perfectly I gave it five stars and it was well deserved. Author JD Couch.
Jerriann Law has done a brilliant job with this work of Fiction. It keeps you turning the pages, with a plot and story line unlike anything I've ever read. The Characters are well crafted and it is an over-all well put together horror story. I'd recommend this story to anyone looking for a scary read that offers more than just a scream-fest; this story has some unusual twists. Author JD Couch
Jerriann Wayahowl Law pieced together a fine work of fiction in Red Slippers; a bit of a Ghost Story with just a hint of a thriller telling three different perspectives over a simple pair of shoes setting on a porch. This is truly worth reading; if you love a great suspense story then Red Slippers is the story for you. I gave it a well deserved 5 Stars, Author JD Couch.
A number of stories and poetry within, all written with a shared enthusiasm about steampunk; and the authors range from first-timers to some who know the genre well.
I found the best stories later in the book, although a couple had typos. I rate this four stars, because it had so many authors that to give it 3 stars over all would be unfair, I think.
It was considerate of the publisher to include all the entries, since some authors admitted to being their first story ever.
Thanks for the free copy...if you're not aware of how fun steampunk can be, this collection will certainly show you it can be quite delightful.
