Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
Truth be told, the first time I truly wrote a few words on paper was shortly after a break up with a beautiful mermaid, a soul whom had been my past, my future and everything in between.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I guess all aspects of writing, from the inception of an idea to the readers awe, fascinate me greatly. But perhaps beyond that, I find bliss in the multi-layered idea of creating written beauty from nothingness. It conceives an exceptional feeling.

Smashwords book reviews by Romeo D. Matshaba

  • Inspiring God's Heart on Feb. 03, 2014

    Upon reading inspiring God’s heart, I felt a sense of calmness, serenity a kind I have never felt and unlikely to feel again. Like a primate trying to catch apples under a tree, I found myself catching an unforeseen, monumental apple. What I grasped from her book was the soothing idea that, ‘respect a woman’s heart, for a woman’s heart is Gods heart’. It is rare for such aiding and alleviating ideas to be expressed so concisely and strategically. At first I believed that the book was strictly ‘by a woman, for women’. But this misconception soon changed as I realized that although I was neither a woman nor a Christian, these are just labels that conceal the hidden truth. That irrespective of what or who you are, the trifling of life challenges us all. Perhaps more so to our mother’s, sister’s and wives’. Above all inspiring God’s heart has unburdened, or at the very least unburdened the troubles of yesterday of my weary shoulders.
