Always Consequences Sample Chapter 5

5“So you think the woman could prove to be a problem?” Umar inquired.
Coetzee’s face remained cold. “I do.”
Umar smiled. “More than she’s worth?”
“Yes.”
 “Smile my friend! She’s a prisoner like the rest. Nothing more, nothing less. Just a young woman.”
Vincent shifted his stance, a slight indication of his disagreement, keeping his thoughts on the matter to himself. “Are we done?”
Umar’s amusement faded. Seriousness set in once more. “How long until the building is complete?”
“Not long. I can persuade the men to work quicker. It would be sooner, than later.”
Umar nodded, “Good. Do it. We shall move them to the warehouse under the cover of night when it’s done. Leave the trailers there. The idiots will assume they are still inside.”
Vincent nodded and stood at attention, remaining as still as he always did. Umar grinned. The man he faced was a formidable opponent, a solid wall who made people think twice about crossing him. His hard exterior couldn’t be broken through, no matter how hard som…

Book Review: What To Do Before You Say "I Do."

I usually don't do too many reviews on my own site. I stick with Goodreads, or where I bought them. Mostly Amazon. But I thought that this book definitely could use a personal review on my site, as well as the other sites. It's just that good.



This book, What to do Before You Say "I do" looked promising from the description and it didn't disappoint. Whether or not you're in a relationship now, or sometime hope to be in the future, this has a lot of great information on learning who you are as a partner, who they may be, or who you will be compatible with. As well as why you may be having such a rocky relationship currently.

There are mini quizzes for you and a partner to take, or just you (as I did) to determine more about who you are in specific ways. Like one on whether you are an optimist or pessimist, and to what level. If you're low, medium, or high.

I love that Susan didn't spend the entire book talking about things and just went straight to the…

Weekend Writing Sat-Sun (May 25th - 26th) Tag #wwab to join in.

The two I will be working on this weekend are:  Dark Illusions: The Final Chapter (72,664 words) and Hope of the Future (70,464 words). Now, the DI book is technically not the furthest behind, but last week, I worked on Hope and The Sorceress so I'm going to do the DI this week. Also Hope because I didn't get to work on it as much as my head started killing me and my eyes were sore.

Special Announcement: I'm going to start work on the book cover for the next in the Dark Illusions Series (Dark Illusions: The Next Chapter) and I wanted to make a special note regarding it because of the people who were gracious enough to allow me to use their faces. I am also grateful for the opportunity to call them both friends. Love them both.

In exchange for blata…

Furthest two behind are Book Five of the Sorceress Series (63,621 words) and Hope of the Future  (65,582 words). Now I can dive into the Sorceress book like I've been wanting to since I last left her. Had so many ideas and they are still fresh and anxious to go since I stuck with working on the others. It's been two weeks since I worked in it, last week was the other two, so that shows how long the craving can last! haha
