Am I a broken reader?

Image result for going crazy

Am I a broken reader?

I write this because well… I guess I read, and LOVE, what I see so many hate. Loathe, reject or deny.

Let me start by saying, this post is NOT about anyone. Its not what anyone said or did, but I what I keep stumbling across as the “norm.”

Growl. I can’t tell you how many posts I’ve run across where some say, “Oh for the love of baby kittens, NO MORE GROWLING.”

Me?

I fucking love it. Done right, if he growls at her, it shivers me timbers. Am I broken?

Millionaires and surprise babies. There are some who say, give me MORE! Some places actually push that troupe.

Me?

What the ever loving fuck? I’m so damn broke and menopausal my head can’t even begin to wrap around that. Not even for a minute. Am I broken?

First vs Third? Again, I’ve run across countless posts, from readers, agents and even editors. Heck, even crit classes. AVOID first.

Me?

LOVE it. I often write 1st POV and more often, read it. When done well, you become that character for their story. Don’t get me wrong. If there are many emotions from many characters I think 3rd is best to better get this across to the reader. Am I broken?

There are so many DON’TS that are my DO list that I’m lest wondering…

Am I a broken reader/author?

Weigh in. Gimme your thoughts. I’m curious.

So far I’ve been quiet this year. LOTS of home repairs going, other projects in the works and general life interrupting events.

HOWEVER, I do have a new release, well, a rather bundled RE-RELEASE. that for the 1st time is available in PRINT!

Three white tiger shifter stories, bundled together!

To Yank a Tiger by the Tail (Bk2)
Blurb: When tiger shifter Dax’s brother Fin, decides to welcome his brothers mate Zhara, with streaking across the meadow, he created a hailstorm of fury, not laughter. Adding to the fated melee, Dax’s ex fiancé, Sparrow, bursts upon the scene with hopes of a reconciliation.

Heartbroken and wary, Zhara bolts…straight into the arms of Starl, wolf shifter and brother to Sparrow.

Will yanking the tiger’s tail destroy the couple for good, or will Dax unsheathe his claws for the fight of life and mate?

Howl at the Holly (Bk3)
Blurb:New Yorker, Charisma Moon let a dream howl right past her for the prospect of an advancing career. Now, it’s less than a week until Christmas, she’s single and she’s … fired! She believes in the magic of Christmas, but not even a miracle can restore her broken heart or the one she shattered, namely Starls.

But in a town that holds both Tiger and Wolf shifters cohabitating peacefully, anything is possible… including forgiveness.

Good Luck!

Ahh, Thanksgiving… complete with ghosts of holidays past. Those being humiliating memories of last year’s revelry gone wild: jail cells, a tattoo and rose left on Kristi James pillow by someone she can’t remember.

Toss in two brothers who, while loving, had needled her with vivid imagery on what might have happened during that fateful rendezvous at the local HoJo’s. Seriously, what’s a girl to do? She’d run like hell from Harpers Ferry back to her apartment and job in Alexandria.
She’s praying this year’s holiday ends a bit more traditional. But between exploding turkey’s, cranberry fights, and the winter storm threatening to lock them all together for

God only knew how long, she’s fairly certain her Norman Rockwell hopes have flown the coop.

Adding another layer to this casserole of disaster, the high school boyfriend—who’d cheated on her two days before prom—returns, claiming to have made a horrid mistake all those years prior.

Amid all this, what has her heart flip-flopping is catching her best friend Simon getting cozy with his latest girlfriend.

Thing is, she isn’t sure why its bothering her so badly.

Sometimes it takes coming home again… to discover how lost we’ve really been.

Hurricane Hermine & Writerly Update

 

HELLO from the dark ages! Day 5 and there are still 14,000 some without power. Things in town are rather wonky as stores restock their shelves from having to toss their foodstuffs. The cell phones are for the most back up, though occasionally still a little slow and yesterday we lost internet until late in the evening.

But guess what?!! The town has been gracious. Everyone. So for all the bad press we get, strangers opened doors, ppl randomly made offers of hot food, showers or even dips in their pools to cool off. Even hot, tired and stanky from desperate needs of showers, the citizens of Tallahassee stepped up, stayed optimistic and jumped forth to help their neighbors.

Most common request we received were dips in the pool and charging of cell phones.

Our loss was the pool pump motor. Sucker won’t come back on which means a green pool until the hubs can get time off to replace it. Also, a ceiling fan oddly won’t come either. Power is up and down. Popped off this morning, but sprang back on quickly. (YAY!!!)

Utility crews have worked ROUND THE CLOCK getting power restored. Their families haven’t seen them since this storm hit, and MUCH GRATITUDE goes out to all of them.

THANK YOU GUYS!!! (And Gals!)

Now onto writerly related events.

Through the month of September Amazon has placed both, Books one and two, on super .99 sale! Yep, grab up Swamp Magic (Bk1) or Under the Full Moon (Bk2) at this amazing price.

My shifters are locally found critters and my heroes don’t turn into, but rather take on the unique qualities of these amazing underdogs of the southern region.

Swamp Magic (Swamp Magic Series Book 1) by [Romans, Bobbi]

Under the Full Moon (Swamp Magic Series Book 2) by [Romans, Bobbi]

Bk2: http://tinyurl.com/zp6nofs

5.0 out of 5 stars Love renewed!, August 14, 2015
This review is from: Under the Full Moon (Swamp Magic Series Book 2) (Kindle Edition)
Grace is such a beautiful and kind hearted soul. She is powerful in her own right. The fact that she might be able to find happiness in Damien, after all that she has lost, is precious. Now only if they can find the time to find out between someone trying to hurt her, kidnap her, or kill her.

 

Also, mark your calendars about the upcoming October 20th, 9 PM EST, Halloween Party at Writerspace featuring the authors of Loose Id, Publishing! Prizes will be awarded at the end of the party.

Wish me luck as I jump back into a semi routine state and hopefully finishing up this yet unnamed, super hero story.

Bobbi
