Good idea for times when there emergencies, adult kids moving out or anyone looking to start "fresh" with their own place. Anytime you need to double check the information it's here in the book and you can apply what you or your family's needs are. Nice job with this!
Wow! I sure wasn't expecting what happened in the story. Excellent piece of writing with well fleshed out action. I'll definitely be watching what Mr. Rogers comes up with next.
Thanks for a great read.
I recently discovered the author on another website and am pleased to see her here. I love her other books and highly recommend to everyone. Good solid plot lines, character development and above all you won't want to put any book down that she's written.
Very nice job with your story! I liked that you began with a bit of a negative streak in the main character and by the end of the story she'd turned out to be very young but pretty wise.
You did an excellent job portraying the main character's feelings as well as her personal growth during a brief period of time. I look forward to seeing more of your writing.
Great Story! You engaged me in the plot from beginning to end. I'm thinking I'd like to see a bit more of this world as the people work together to overcome their circumstances and stop the slaughter for good. Loved your idea!
What a treat this story was! I love all the fickle and fey that life has to offer. It's always been the writers of the world who spark one's imagination and you certainly did that! I hope you try more stories along this line. Very creative and magical.
Wow! I was so not expecting the story to down this path. In the beginning it felt like a nervous meeting between two people who didn't know each other very well but had agreed to meet. It sure caught me off guard. I'll definitely be waiting for more.
i liked your story. You did a good job with the plot line
(unexpected and good ending) as well as developing your two main characters. This is a good read for a break.
Thank you for sharing your writing.
Excellent story! I wasn't expecting the ending at all. This story reminds me of an old Twilight Zone, and just like that writer, this author made sure to keep the suspense building and delivered a whammy of an ending! Definitely a good read. I will be watching for more, and thankyou for sharing.
Wonderful job with your book! I totally hated to leave off long enough to sleep. To me, that defines a great read. Thankyou for sharing it with all of us and yes, I will definitely be watching hopefully for a "next in the series" to come along. Good solid plot, character development, some interesting side stories and good use of descriptive phrases that lure the reader more deeply into the story.
Good story! It could've used a bit more detail perhaps about the world that the main character woke up in to give the reader a bit more, however it was good in it's own right. Short, sweet and to the point.
This is the second story I've read from this author. I like the author's style and how he pieces a simple story together that leaves the reader wanting more. This short could easily be made into a novella or more. Nicely done!
Very well written story! You did a good job with the back story and weaving the plot. I didn't realise until the end what would happen. You have quite a talent with horror and should definitely keep at it. Thank you for sharing your story.
Girl on a Rock: a short story
on April 21, 2012
I really enjoyed reading your short fiction piece. It was a good solid story and very well written. The only complaint I might have is that it left me wanting more:) Thank you for sharing your story!
Wow! Parents beware:) This story was excellent in that it portrayed the emotions of the main character in such a way that it was very easy to see how important good parenting is! You did a super job with your story and building the characters. Not only was the story a great read, it left me with insight as to how parents can so easily fail their children. Thank you for a brief glimpse of what parents should never never be.
Your short story about your mother and how she lived that last year of her life, how you dealt with that as well as other members of your family touched my heart. I took care of my own mother for the last 10 years of her life and in doing so was blessed with a closer relationship with her, understanding where she was at and most of all, accepting her death as a natural progression of life. Thank you for sharing your story! I would imagine that many readers would benefit from the truths therein.
Thank you for sharing your story. It was very informative and clearly straight forward. I think it's terribly sad that people have such difficulties accepting friends and family who might be a bit different. I also believe that those who look beyond and into the soul truly are blessed and will never be stuck in a "box." How wonderful you were able to move forward in your life, make an important decision, act upon it and find acceptance, peace and love.
Wow! This story gripped me and held me tight until the end. Good job with your plot & how you carried it out. This is outstanding and I will definitely check in to see what else you come up with. Thank you for sharing your work
I was introduced to your writing on B&N with 'Shadow Games.' I've read a few of your books and have to say you've done a great job world building, character building and keeping the reader (me) thoroughly engaged in the process. It's always a treat to come across an Indie author with talent. I read anywhere between 5 - 10 books a week and am always on the lookout for good authors. I've marked you as a favorite and hey, thank you for sharing your work! It's always a treat to read something by you.
I liked your story very much. Sometimes it's a good thing to see through the eyes of a child so one can understand without the "clutter" of an adult mind. Thought provoking and heartwarming.
Thankyou for sharing
I just got done reading 'Nora's Sun' and I have to say it was an excellent well-written short story. The author did an outstanding job of building her world, the characters and the plot. I am looking forward to reading anything else this author writes.
Thank you for a great read.
Very good job with your story! I liked the ending but even more so, the thought process of the two parents. Francis
Porretto has a good idea with the use of Hitler. I agree that perhaps a Ted Bundy or another serial killer would've worked, however I do feel that Hitler got the message across.
I liked your story. You did a great job fleshing out your characters and even though the story was short, you had an excellent plot. I'm looking forward to reading more of your work. Thankyou for sharing!
You did a wonderful job with your story. It touched things within me that I haven't thought of in years. It also reminded me just how terrific my dad was before he was gone. It's also a gentle reminder to cherish what we have because it can disappear so quickly.
Thank you for sharing.
