Hag: A Contemporary YA Romance

HAG is a teen drama that has it all. Author Rachel Reuben has not forgotten her teenage years drawing from the reader the ability to feel along with Audrey as Audrey bumps, ducks and crashes with every obstacles and problem in her young life. Audrey begins to like the company of Roddai's, someone she tried not to like while at the same time finds her ex-boyfriend, Desmond, is interested in her again. Trouble follows as both boys have a secret they keep from Audrey as bullying leads to tragedy.

I felt a connection with Audrey. My own teen years came floored back as I remembered friends who sadly didn't make if past their teen years. I loved Audrey and you will too. 5 Stars.

Dead Comic Standing
With a chance at success quelling their fears, a slew of new comics are eager to have a chance, even with a psychotic serial killer out to get them all, to step on stage following each seasoned comic murder in Karen Vaughan's, Dead Comic Standing. It's a humorous whodunit full of hilarious comedy relief by many of the future victims in this tightly written book. You get the benefit of a cozy mystery, a sizzling romance and laughs all in one that keeps you reading until the end. I so enjoyed this book! 5 stars.

Janoose The Goose: Character Quotes


https://cerealauthors.wordpress.com/2016/03/27/janoose-the-goose-character-quotes/ 
Looking out the window, Janoose was shocked at what she saw. Deedee was being chased by a fox! 
Deedee tried to fly away by flapping her little wings, but her wings were not strong enough to get her off the ground. “We better do something or Deedee will become duck soup!” Janoose said. ~ Janoose The Goose, a picture book by JD Holiday.

A Talk With Professional Actress, Singer, Model and AUTHOR, Lora Mitchell

 
Amazon
The moment Lora Mitchell sets foot on the stimulating, exciting rich land of culture, concrete and skyscrapers, it's an immediate love affair. Walk with her down the streets of the early 1960's as she paints a captivating picture of the spirit of the city, the landscape, its people, different neighborhoods and certain ethnic foods, which puzzle her.  A desire to begin a theatrical career, young, naive, unsophisticated, Lora moves into the Rehearsal Club, a safe-haven sanctuary for young, aspiring actresses model where she lives for two years.  During that time, she experiences the heartbreaking JFK tragedy and travels with four other Club members to Washington, DC for the funeral. 
Lora began a second career as a published writer. Lora won 1st prize for her poem in an anthology titled: LOVE IN NEW YORK and enjoys writing Flash Fiction short stories in the eBook titled: MISTY BLUE. Her eBook II is titled: TIME SPEAKS. (Both eBooks are collections of 100-Word Flash Fiction Short Stories).
