  • Tormented on Oct. 17, 2012
    (no rating)
    Tormented was an excellent story and very well written. I enjoyed it from beginning to end. Angelina is quite a complex character. Not only do others not understand or truly know her – she is about to learn more about herself than she ever imagined. The romance piece (minimal) is initially similar to a good versus bad type of situation but that isn’t necessarily the case. Since I tend to like the underdogs I love Ethan’s character. There is a great deal left hanging at the end so I am sure J Ann plans to develop a sequel. I thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of this story and each adventure was developed fully. It is easy to feel like you are part of this story and to develop feelings for each character and their roles in society. NOTE: I received a complimentary copy of this book directly from the author.
  • Freelance Writing Guide: What to Expect in Your First Year as a Freelance Writer on Sep. 25, 2013

    I have been considering looking into freelance writing for some time. For me, it seems to be the natural progression from all of my blog writing. A new way to be creative and expressive. However, to succeed there is so much more to know than just how to write. There are roadblocks that need to be navigated, technological paths that are not widely known, pitfalls to beware of etc... Christine's book is a great tool to help find the way. Anything I could have asked for is in this guide - even continuing education classes! Freelance writing also does not fit into just everyone's lifestyle - she helps through those issues and concerns too. As soon as I am ready to begin my journey - I will put so many of these tips to great use! I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
