Smashwords Interview

What is your writing process?
I don't really have a writing process. When I have the time to write, I sit down at the computer and let the characters guide me, unless I'm writing a Non Fiction. If the story is a Non Fiction, the facts of life tell the story.
What do you read for pleasure?
Yes, I do. I think all authors should read. Especially the same books in the genre they write in. I think this helps them become a better author and writer over all.

Smashwords book reviews by RaeBeth McGee- Buda

  • Shades of Grey on June 11, 2012

    I'm not one for short stories.... until now. I read Shades of Grey by Michael Cargill and I must say it was worth it. It's three stories of three different people in very dark worlds. The first story Shades of Grey follows the story line of a captured UK black ops agent. The main character of this one seems to be the one which is allowing the reader into his thoughts. Michael pulled me right in with this one. The second story There and Back Again is brought to the reader completely different than the first. It's focus is on a soldier during World War II which is packed with action. The third Down the Rabbit Hole is about a young boy who's abused becomes friends with his toy rabbit. This rabbit turns out to be his help in his time of need. I give this story four **** stars. I very much enjoyed it and I'm glad I had the chance to read it.
  • Zola's Pride (Southern Arcana, #2.5) on June 12, 2012

    Zola's Pride by Moira Rogers is a great short read for those who like small quick books. In fact, I feel it was too short. The short story seemed to pull me in from the beginning although it seems to leave out a lot of information I would have loved to know. The plot seemed to be well thought out as was the characters. With a touch of romance and a bit of action, I give this book four **** stars. I'm glad I had the opportunity to read it and I look forward to reading more of Moira Rogers work. I must say this author is talented and her work is intriguing.
  • Alien Species Intervention Books 1-3 on March 13, 2014

    I love this anthology. Here are my reviews on each book: Baby: raebethmcgeebuda Posted March 13, 2014 When I got Baby, I wasn't sure if I would like it because of the When I got Baby, I wasn't sure if I would like it because of the cover art. I'm really not one for a Sci-Fi type book. As I began reading I felt pain for Netty because of her life as a slave to her husband. As the book progressed and Baby was introduced, I loved the little guy for cheering up Netty and the same with Wil when he came into the story. The plot was well thought out but I had a little bit of a hard time connecting with the characters. There were times I had difficult following along because of the different writing styles I came across within the book. I did enjoy the plot because it's unique. Baby takes the reader on a journey where love, pain, and happiness are abundant. I enjoyed reading Baby and finished it quicker than I thought I would. I suggest giving Baby a try because it's easy to enjoy after putting aside the issues within the plot and characters. Echo: After reading the first book in the series, I quickly started reading Echo because I had to find out what happened next. Once again... I wasn't disappointed at all to say the least. In this part of the series it takes place many years after the first. There's also the introduction of new characters. Abby and Scotty have physical problems with their health and Echo saves them. Therefore making them part of the family. The plot was fast and kept me reading. The only thing I didn't like about it was the graphic details with Armoni and his crew. Parts of this had me needing a break because it was sort of upsetting. Therefore, I will say if you're sensitive to rape... read with caution. Other than that I loved the book. Armageddon Cometh: Due to the cover of Armageddon Cometh, I wasn't sure about this book within the series. The cover art had me a bit worried because I'm normally not one to read (and enjoy) Sci-Fi type books. I have to say that once again the author pulled me in from the first page. The book is well written and the plot runs smoothly. The action keeps your heart going causing to to flip the page. I caught myself saying "Just one more chapter." I started this book this morning and couldn't put it down until I completed it. This is a series you won't want to miss.
