Readers could use our journey as a learning vehicle. The path traveled maybe the road where others have walked along the way, so THEY too are not alone., it should grab their interest to know my mind and spirit was totally out there while writing this story. And perhaps, not the most polished work at that point. Oh yes, there is sensitive language part involved.

- Backyard Horse Tales 2: Frosty and the Nightstalker
on Nov. 25, 2012
Title: Backyard Horse Tales 2 Frosty and the Night Stalker
Publication date: 10/11/12
A Kindle Edition
This story opens in the time of May 1968 at a place called Hi Lo Farms. It’s a non-fiction, fantasy tale of a horse and/or horses. And is presented in a 1st person structure – and this format is spoken from the mouth of the horse (an animal’s view). In its reading, the reader will definitely take a journey through space and time. One doesn’t have to be a horse lover to get pleasure out of its story. The book will give enjoyment to ALL who reads its tale. While reading the story, one may want to stop reading just to embrace its pictorial characters. (The Author and Illustrator have done a marvelous job in capturing the drawings, I think.) Personally, I could visualize this book being housed on every school shelf – to be read during scheduled “story time” periods.
I commend the Author for her descriptive manner. The structure is well-written, and does put one in the moment. Truly, great job for both the Writer and Illustrator.
- Uncharted Storms: Short Stories of Hearts at Risk
on April 29, 2014
It’s a Fiction of Adventurous Stories
True this story is full of romance, love, animals and paranormal events . . .
Author Jackie Anton has done it again! Jackie has written an array of entertaining stories and this is another one added to her mix. This time there’s five (5) fantastic tales rolled into one great book. The titles include: “Terra Beyond 2012,” “A Tumble in the Snow,” “Riding Lightning,” “Flash Flood Texas Style,” and “A Rainy Night.” These short stories of the heart make a great read for the YA genre. Wait, it just does not stop there adults-alike will find it an interesting read as well! The inside details of these stories I shall leave for the reader to discover. And it’s not a tough read ‘cause the book itself is only 69 pages. Easy read, right?
But I will comment on the author’s form of writing. Be assured, “It’s so detailed written.” As the story is followed, readers can vividly visualize every scene and characters’ outline through her very descriptive style. For each story told, one may feel and believe they are physically carried into the moment for which that story takes place; and lives within its scene. Now, when an author can bring a reader on such level that speaks “Masterpiece,” and sheds an insight on the author’s gift for writing.
There were a tad editing issues; and a reason it got rated four stars versus her normal five. Shucks though, that does not sway from the overall message of their story. Jackie has done so much to entertain us readers with her many stories - behind the scenes. It never amazes me the stories this author can find to come up with and the manner in which their told. By the way, she has another great storybook in store for her readers. Her title: “BYHT3: Don’t Call Me Love,” is in the works. To see the beautiful cover, one can take a peek at her Facebook Fan Page: "Backyard Horse Tales." What a way to go? I highly recommend this book. So, be sure to pick up your copy. Keep ‘em coming, Jackie!
