- Erra More & the Sibitti
on Oct. 12, 2011
Erra More is the sequel to Erra. In this book, Poppet introduces us to each of the Sibitti, God's special angelic forces, seven in all, and their relationship to the main character Sarah The story is written in first person.
We first hear of the Sibitti in the first book Erra, where we find out that Sarah has a very special destiny. In Erra More, we find out Sarah's relationship with the Sibitti, and their major role in bringing about the fulfillment of prophecy. It is Sarah's responsibility to retrieve seven crucial keys, ( which at first she does reluctantly) hidden at the beginning of time and doing so takes her on one wild adventure after another! Each adventure with a different gorgeous, sexy and definitely delicious Sibitti!
Poppet has masterfully woven drama, humor, excitement, desire and much, much more into this marvelous work. It was an enjoyable read, one that will make you regret reaching the end and leaving you wanting more. Once again Poppet has floored me!
- Broken Bones
on Oct. 24, 2011
Broken Bones is a collection of twenty short stories. Some humorous, some thought provoking and some nostalgic ( my favorite Grandma's Scarf) This is a showcase of the author's talent, which is quite impressive. I enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anyone looking to take short breaks from their humdrum, in a comfy chair with a cup of coffee.

Raven was a delightful surprise. From the moment I picked up the book until the day I regretfully reached the end , I thoroughly enjoyed it. It may be targeted for young adults, but this book has appeal for all ages. The storyline was engaging and original. The quality of writing reflects the insured future of this writer, and that is successful. Honestly, I didn't want to put it down, so when I found out the is a sequel I was excited. Keep up the great work you have a follower and a fan in me!

Hmmm What do you do when the freezer is empty? Jackie Williams' new short story Road Kill explores some new possibilities. If this is a taste of her writing skills, then you should look forward to the rest of her work! I enjoyed this and so will you.

Well, I did it I read a book out of my normal genre. Djinn is my very first horror book, and I must say, I was introduced to the genre right! My perception of what a good horror story is; one that gets your heart racing and keeps you on the edge of your seat. This book did this for me and more. The dialogue was rich. It is written in first person from two perspectives. Each perspective was of a well developed character and it was also enlightening.
I have read many possession accounts, but never from the viewpoint of the one possessed. All the emotions of fear, confusion, and disbelief were masterfully woven into an easy reading and very entertaining story. I have come to the conclusion, that every other horror book I read from now on is going to have to be held up to a high standard, now that I have read this book. If you like horror you will definitely love this book. I did!
- Cassandra's Heart
on Nov. 17, 2011
A little spice and a little magic. Cassandra's Heart is an easy reading delightful book the that you will enjoy. Directed toward young adults, it explores the reintroduction of relationship love after a lost. A totally enjoyable read. I liked it and so will you!

Erra has a twin bother, and he is just as sexy and handsome. The delicious Sibitti are back too. Shar is about love, trust and surrender. It is set to run parallel with the first Erra book. It gives us another glimpse at the glorious ones and the secrets of their legends. It is the story of a homecoming. I have come to the conclusion, that there is no subject that Poppet cannot masterfully create into a best selling novel. Once again, job well done Poppet! Now it's just a matter of time until the next great Poppet book comes out. I can't hardly wait!

After a night on the town, four friends decide to finish their Halloween celebration with a seance. After all, it's just a game, right? The four find out soon enough, that's not so, in this tale that will scare your socks off.
The story is set in beautiful Cancun, Mexico surrounded by turquoise seas, and ancient Mayan temples. The gods are back, and they have a mission for Usha. That's if everyone doesn't die first! This book kept me on the edge of my seat, tantalized all my senses, and brought forth every one of my emotions. And then it brought to life my biggest fear! All I can say is WOW! I loved it. In my opinion this is Poppet's best work so far, and since all of her work is best selling material that says a lot.
- Flesh & Blood
on July 12, 2012
I am so impressed. I have not see talent such as this since To Kill a Mockingbird. This story is set in the same era and has the same flavor but... it has uniqueness that the author brings to it. It has all the elements of a true, good work of fiction. Well developed characters, emotion, anticipation, and the ability not to let me put it down until the end. This is my first reading from this author,and it is definitely not my last. I highly recommend that you read this and continue reading this author's work.
- Dance Macabre
on Dec. 20, 2012
An interesting book that explores conundrum of middle age and still being single with all of it's frustrations., including blind dates. The main character in this book is very interesting. She very unusual life experiences that cause her to have a rather different perspective on life and on relationships. But in many ways, she has the same fears and doubts as everyone else. I enjoyed this author's style of writing and found the storyline interesting. Her characters had depth and her descriptions of Miami life took me to a place I had never been before with clarity. I enjoyed this book.
- The Wrong Side of Right
on May 29, 2013
Sometimes we hurt ourselves because we are too terrified to feel good. Honestly, how many of us get this life thing right? If you are looking for a book that has sweet romance don't bother reading this book. This is the story of a soul searching for his place in this world when he was brought up to believe he would never fit. He makes choices some good, some self destructive. But each choice he makes brings him closer to the realization that he always did fit. There is a place for everyone. I found myself weeping and laughing and cheering. Would I read this book again? Yes, in a heartbeat.
- Crystal Shade: Introduction
on July 27, 2013
Life is nothing more than a series of profound and mundane moments intertwining in concentric circles in the sea of life. What is profound to one is mundane to another and vice versa.
Reading “Crystal Shade: Introduction” released me from a mundane moment and elevated to me to a profound one. Although this e-book was created as a promotional tool to introduce the reader to the Auralight Fantasy Series Crystal Shade, it is a work of art in itself.
Not only is there a personal message from the author and a very generous excerpt, but included throughout the book is stunning original artwork.
Now is your chance to not only find out about Auralight Fantasy, but to also sample a bit of a true visionary’s work.
What else can I say but, Bravo.
