Meet the Author:

Marilyn R. Wilson is a freelance writer, published author and speaker with a passion for interviewing. Her career as a writer began in an unusual way: by answering a Craigslist ad from a NYC magazine. The world shifted when she conducted her first interview—she had found her passion.

Since 2006, she has interviewed over a hundred and fifty people from around the globe, co-owned a local magazine, wrote freelance for others, worked as an editor, published two books and provided author support for her publisher. Her goal as an author -- to give wings to the stories of others and to pay forward some of the many "pieces of gold" received during interviews - bits of wisdom that have changed her life. ​

Personal Opinion:

I LOVED reading this book! Really loved it. Its very inspirational and the author is very open with her vulnerabilities and issues she has had, but she didn't let them stop her from thriving and being the best she could be. A lot of the values she wrote about were the ones I tend to agree with, and I applaud her using the environmental conscientious effort in trying to stem the mass consumerism of the culture.This book came at the right time for me in my life. Also, a very gorgeous and beautiful cover.

G1038 Book Review of Death Logs out by E.J. Simon

Name of Book: Death Logs Out

Author: E.J Simon

ISBN: 9781980730318

Publisher: Endeavour Media

Part of a Series: Michael Nichols

Type of book: Humanity, brotherhood, intelligence, artificial intelligence, secrets, pope, the vatican,  murders

Year it was published: 2018

Summary:

Is Alex Nicholas really dead?

Two years since the brutal shooting of Alex Nicholas, a gambling underworld boss in Queens, NYC. But his brother, Michael, a respected CEO, struggles with a secret: his murdered brother has been communicating with him via his laptop using AI. This AI-Alex can foresee dangers in Michael’s path, and appears to be trying to help him – even controlling machinery and electronics via WiFi. Meanwhile, trouble is stirring in the historic capital cities of Rome, Berlin and Paris. Inside the Vatican, Monsignor Kurt Schlegelberger has designs to build his power and prepare for the sudden ascension of the Free Forces Party, a throw-back to the Nazis.

Schlegelberger will stop at nothing, but first he must deal with a new threat: someone appears to know the true story behind a series of murders in the US, committed by clergy to cover their tracks of child abuse within the Church. Alex’s re-appearance puts Schlegelberger’s plans in jeopardy. Dead or alive, the way to finish off Alex for good can only be to get to his close family, namely his brother Michael…

This fast-paced third instalment of E.J. Simon’s Death series will keep readers guessing to the very end.

Characters:

Main characters include Michael, younger brother of Alex who took over Alex's business when Alex has died. Michael is resourceful and intelligent. There is also Alex who seems to be evolving as the story goes on and is also resourceful, intelligent and fun loving. Of course, he also loves messing with people, and thrives on attention. There are other characters such as Sindy Steele, the killer nurse and the evil guys in form of Vatican, but they aren't as developed.

Theme:

What is humanity

Plot:

The story is in third person narrative from a lot of characters' points of view such as Michael, his brother Alex, then their paramours. I feel that points of view tended to jump a lot and it was difficult for me to understand who is talking and who isn't. It's also action-paced and there doesn't seem to be a lot of character development,. although its a different story with Alex. I also feel that the author really wrestled with the question of what makes humans humans and whether or not machines or artificial intelligence can achieve that level.

Opinion:

To be honest, I have read the prequels for the book years and years ago, which in hindsight is not good because I didn't enjoy the story as much as I enjoyed the prequels, and which does answer the question that its obviously not a stand-alone novel and that previous books are a must-read, and that all three must be read in a few sittings as possible. The story is very quick paced and somehow I couldn't really catch up to the level I felt that I needed when I read the book. Its definitely interesting and does have potential, but I feel that it should have been developed more to help the readers who are not familiar with the characters or past events become more familiar.

An Important Article: 10 Things Indian Students Miss About Home When Studying Overseas

From the time I arrived to America to now, I always found myself being involved in immigration tales as well as the fine line between assimilating and staying true to one's roots. Although the article is geared towards Indian (students of South Asian ancenstry,) I imagine that it can apply to anyone, especially towards international students.

This article was not written by me, but was written by someone, and I agreed to share it on my blog because I feel its important to recognize and know others' experiences.

Clash of Empires by Paul Bennett Book Blast


Clash of Empires by Paul Bennett

Publication Date: December 8, 2016
Paperback & eBook; 224 Pages
ISBN-13: 978-1540666628

Series: The Mallory Saga, Book #1
Genre: Historical Fiction


In 1756, Britain and France are on a collision course for control of the North American continent. The eventual result can be described as the first world war, known as the Seven Year’s War in Europe and the French and Indian War in the colonies. The Mallory family uproots from eastern Pennsylvania, and moves to the western frontier, where they find themselves in the middle of war. Daniel, Liam, and Liza (the three Mallory siblings) become involved in the conflict in ways that lead to emotional trauma for each. The story focuses on historical events and includes historical characters. Clash of Empires is an exciting look at the developments leading to the events of July 1776, which are chronicled in the sequel as we follow the exploits and fate of the Mallory clan.

"I feel both educated and thoroughly entertained by Mr. Bennett’s debut novel ‘Clash of Empires’. Rich in detail mined from the author’s clearly painstaking research, we find lessons that should have been learned from the distant past rising to the fore once more; cannons boom, bullets fly and tomahawks spin through the air as the war builds towards a brutal climax. A fresh voice and a cracking tale. Recommended!" - Author Gordon Doherty

Amazon US | Amazon UK | IndieBound

About the Author

Paul’s education was of the public variety and when he reached Junior High he discovered that his future did not include the fields of mathematics or science. This was generally the case throughout his years in school as he focused more on his interest in history; not just the rote version of names and dates but the causes. Paul studied Classical Civilization at Wayne State University with a smattering of Physical Anthropology thrown in for good measure. Logically, of course, Paul spent the next four decades drawing upon that vast store of knowledge working in large, multi-platform data centers, and is considered in the industry as a bona fide IBM Mainframe dinosaur heading for extinction. Paul currently resides in the quaint New England town of Salem, Massachusetts with his wife, Daryl. The three children have all grown, in the process turning Paul’s beard gray, and have now provided four grandchildren; the author is now going bald.

G1039 Book Review of Stolen Obsession by Marlene M Bell

Name of Book: Stolen Obsession

Author: Marlene M. Bell

ISBN: 9780999539408

Publisher: Self published

Type of book: mystery, murder, art, curse, Greece, attraction, chemistry, trust issues

Year it was published: 2018

Summary:

People die, but legends live on.

New York antiquities appraiser Annalisse Drury recently lost her best friend to murder. The killer’s identity may be linked to her friend’s expensive missing bracelet—a 500-year-old artifact that carries an ancient curse, one that unleashes evil upon any who dare wear the jewelry created for the Persian royal family.

Weeks later, Annalisse sees a matching necklace at a Manhattan gallery opening. She begs the owner to destroy the cursed piece, but her pleas fall on deaf ears—despite the unnatural death that occurs during the opening. With two victims linked to the jewelry, Annalisse is certain she must act.

Desperate, Annalisse enlists the gallery owner’s son to help—even though she’s afraid he’ll break her heart. Wealthy and devastatingly handsome, with a string of bereft women in his wake, Greek playboy Alec Zavos dismisses Annalisse’s concerns—until his parents are ripped from the Zavos family yacht during their ocean voyage near Crete.

Annalisse and Alec race across two oceans to save his mother, feared dead or kidnapped. When the killer changes tactics and goes after Alec behind Annalisse’s back, can her plan to rescue Alec’s mother save them all?

Hold on for a heart-thumping, thrilling adventure through exotic lands in this fast-moving romantic suspense mystery by Marlene M. Bell.

Characters:

Main characters include Annalise and Alec. Annalise is best described as a talented antiquities appraiser who has trust issues and who also is hesitant in letting people into her heart. I get the sense she is an independent spirit and doesn't like depending on others. Alec is half Italian/half Greek man who is really too good to be true. As the reader is constantly reminded, he is attractive and is heaven-sent. He also has trust issues, although for different reasons than Annalise.

Theme:

You never know how things tie together

Plot:

The story is in third person narrative from Annalise's and Alec's points of view. The point of view happens a lot without a warning, and to be honest I found the story quite a bit confusing. As I understood it, its about a necklace that got Annalise's best friend murdered, and I thought that perhaps it would go a supernatural route. I also had hoped that Alec's heritage would be treated as more than just words.

Opinion:

I am really sorry but this book  is far more of a miss for me rather than a hit.. I did manage to get  a bit into the story towards the end, but from beginning to that point, I found myself frustrated and disappointed in the story. First what I liked is an interesting mystery of who had done it and why. The first few chapters really did start out with a bang. When the characters began emerging and showing their unique personalities, I liked that a great deal and thought that the story is definitely a hidden gem of sorts. What I really didn't like is that the author never lets a reader forget that both Alec and Annalise have hots for one another. I literally felt as if every page has a variation of  how they find one another attractive, which was very annoying for me. Towards the end, I think I got a bit lost in what was going on and why it was happening. All in all, a casual read.

G1048 Book Review of A black matter for the king by Matthew Willis and J.A. Ironside

Name of Book: A Black Matter for the King

Author: J.A. Ironside and Matthew Willis

ISBN: 978-1-946409-46-1

Publisher: Penmore Press

Part of a Series: An Arguement of Blood is the prequel

Type of book: 1050s-1080s?, William the Bastard Duke of Normandy, political power, intrigues, England, Harold, the Godwin family, battles, wars, slights, oath, Edward the Confessor, control, Battle of Hastings 1066, death, aging

Year it was published: 2018

Summary:

TWO POWERFUL RIVALS -- ONE DECISIVE BATTLE Now a political hostage in Falaise, Aelfgifa forms an unlikely friendship with William, Duke of Normandy. William has been swift to recognize her skills and exploit them to his advantage. However, unbeknownst to the duke, Gifa is acting as a spy for her brother, Harold Godwinson, a possible rival for the English throne currently in the failing grip of Edward the Confessor. Homesick and alienated by the Norman court, Gifa is torn between the Duke's trust and the duty she owes her family. William has subdued his dissenting nobles, and a united Normandy is within his grasp. But the tides of power and influence are rarely still. As William's stature grows, the circle of those he can trust shrinks. Beyond the English Channel, William has received news of Edward's astonishing decree regarding the succession.


Aelfgifa returns to an England where an undercurrent of discontent bubbles beneath the surface. An England that may soon erupt in conflict as one king dies and another is chosen. The ambitions of two powerful men will decide the fates of rival cultures in a single battle at Hastings that will change England, Europe, and the world in this compelling conclusion to the Oath & Crown series on the life and battles of William the Conqueror.

Characters:

Main characters would be AElfgifa and William as well as AElgifa's older brother Harold. AElgifa continues to remain the sharp-tongued and wise beyond her years woman whom many are afraid to trifle with, and its not because of her intelligence but also because of her appearance, as sad as it to report. Most likely, she is probably the only woman I have run across that actually never ended up having a paramour. She lives and breathes for intrigues, knowledge and for control, and unfortunately ends up in situations where she cannot use her gifts as they are meant to be used. William, the Duke of Normandy, feels friendship for AElfgifa and often uses her gifts for his own means. He is best described as tempered, stubborn and determined to avenge whatever slights he is able. He is also a capable leader and tends to judge people well in terms of helping him reach his goals. Harold in this book is happy-go-lucky as well as daring and someone who is charming and often resists listening to reason.

Theme:

Things don't go as often as planned

Plot:

The story is in third person narrative from AElfgifa's and William's points of view. The characters continue to remain the same as in the previous novel, and there are a number of memorable scenes with William and what he did during the battles. Probably because most of my readings of the road to Battle of Hastings comes from Harold's points of view, it's odd to not be in the thick among the important events, although AElfgifa does provide the Battle of Stamford Bridge. I also appreciated how clear the battles are written for the readers and that I had understood what was going on and why, which is new with when it comes to historical fiction.

(From the book)




J.A. Ironside (Jules) grew up in rural Dorset, surrounded by books – which pretty much set he up for life as a complete bibliophile. She loves speculative fiction of all stripes, especially fantasy and science fiction, although when it comes to the written word, she’s not choosy and will read almost anything. Actually it would be fair to say she starts to go a bit peculiar if she doesn’t get through at least three books a week. She writes across various genres, both adult and YA fiction, and it’s a rare story if there isn’t a fantastical or speculative element in there somewhere.

Jules has had several short stories published in magazines and anthologies, as well as recorded for literature podcasts. Books 1 and 2 of her popular Unveiled series are currently available with the 3rd and 4th books due for release Autumn/ Winter 2017.

She also co-authored the sweeping epic historical Oath and Crown Duology with Matthew Willis, released June 2017 from Penmore Press.

Jules now lives on the edge of the Cotswold way with her boyfriend creature and a small black and white cat, both of whom share a god-complex.

Matthew Willis is an author of historical fiction, SF, fantasy and non-fiction. In June 2017 An Argument of Blood, the first of two historical novels about the Norman Conquest co-written with J.A. Ironside, was published. In 2015 his story Energy was shortlisted for the Bridport short story award.

Matthew studied Literature and History of Science at the University of Kent, where he wrote an MA thesis on Joseph Conrad and sailed for the University in national competitions. He subsequently worked as a journalist for Autosport and F1 Racing magazines, before switching to a career with the National Health Service.

His first non-fiction book, a history of the Blackburn Skua WW2 naval dive bomber, was published in 2007. He now has four non fiction books published with a fifth, a biography of test pilot Duncan Menzies, due later in 2017. He currently lives in Southampton and writes both fiction and non-fiction for a living.

Opinion:

The previous book, AN ARGUMENT OF BLOOD, has set the bar very high when it comes to this book: I think I expected for this book to contain a lot of Aegilfa, and much to mine disappointment it doesn't contain much of her. While the events have very high stakes, (the future of England, and the deciding ruler,) I don't think this book had as much sparkle as the prequel. Previous times when I have read about the road to Battle of Hastings in 1066, most likely the narrator was Harold, thus I knew next very little about William Duke of Normandy beyond the fact of his birth. Probably for the first time I've actually read a tale from William's point of view. I also think that both books need to be read immediately after one another because when the time period is long between the readings, a lot can be lost between the space (for one thing I was confused with which characters were important,)

G1034 Book Review of The hope fault by Tracy Farr

Name of Book: The Hope Fault

Author: Tracy Farr

ISBN: 9781910709436

Publisher: Aardvark Bureau

Type of book: Australia, last 100 years, life, family, complexity, relationships, first love, shifting roles, science, role of science, weekend, selling house,  party, secrets

Year it was published: 2018

Summary:

Iris’s family – her ex-husband with his new wife and baby; her son, and her best friend’s daughter – gather to pack up their holiday house. They are there for one last time, one last weekend, and one last party – but in the course of this weekend, their connections will be affirmed, and their frailties and secrets revealed – to the reader at least, if not to each other. The Hope Fault is a novel about extended family: about steps and exes and fairy godmothers; about parents and partners who are missing, and the people who replace them.

Characters:

There are no villainous characters, and there are no perfect characters,but instead these are people and not specific archetypes. People who are imperfect yet perfect, who are somewhere in-between rather than all white or black. Having said that, its a bit difficult for me to describe one person as one way, and the other as the other way. Suffice to say, the characters are important to one another in their lives and are creative and make use of their creativity. They also treat one another civily and more as friends. (Where in the world will you get ex-spouses together who are friendly to one another, especially when one of them is married with a baby and an almost adult son? And where family did not get torn by divorce?) I really do need to re-read the book to fully grasp the complexity of the tale.

Theme:

Complexity of family is related to complexity of the world

Plot:

The story is told in third person and first narrative from multiple characters' points of views. The third person narrative takes place in the present day of Rosa's daughter's family and friends, while the first person narrative is of Rosa. I also think its the first time in a long time that I question the choice of having third person narrative for everyone but Rosa. The tale is of details,  of small significant happenings, which means its of a family and friends getting together and just doing ordinary everyday things during the weekend. There is nothing earth shattering, although quite a number of things are left unfinished and are likely to remain unfinished in the novel. What is also unique is Rosa's point of view because instead of going from start to finish, the story is finish to start which makes it a challenging read. (Never having read that sort of tale, because I am more used to beginning or media res,) but it begins with events from the time Rosa is 100 to the time she is born and it focuses a lot on specific events of her life. I think I found it challenging mainly because I had to remember the previous events going backwards instead of forwards.

Opinion:

I had very fond memories of my college years, and one class in particular taught me a valuable lesson: to see the disciplines of humanities and science as not different but ultimately the same. The stories I read in that particular class have truly underscored a wonderful writing style when the author is talented in both "disparate" fields. Reading THE HOPE FAULT put me back into that wonderful time of unlimited time and possibilities and of complexity of the world.  This is truly a unique story of everyday life, and of one life in particular and the secrets it holds and doesn't release. A wonderful multi-layered story that deserves multiple re-reads.

This was given to me for an honest review

G1041 Held Together; a true story of love's victory

Title of the book: Held Together; a true story of love's victory

Author: Jenny Q

Publisher: Self published

Publishing Date: 2018

ISBN: 978-1-54392-841-9

Summary:

In January of 2014, Joshua Tree's beloved village herbalist, Jenny Q. suddenly became seriously ill and rapidly descended into a coma with slender chance of survival. The shock of this news initiated an overwhelming outpouring of love, wit, service, practical magic and sharing of spiritual wisdom between those in her intimate desert community. Indeed it seemed that the entire group became one in their desperate effort and race against the clock to save her life.

While the words of others in the community tell the story in this book, it is Jenny's own insightful writings that provide a fascinating window into a range of rare experiences. She gives us a unique glimpse into the mysterious worlds encountered while in a coma, the absolute alteration of losing one's legs, the subtle venom of PTSD, the nightmare of withdrawal from prescription opiates, and the maddening frustration of having to re-learn basic skills previously taken for granted such as the ability to walk.

This is a story of love and tenacity which speaks to the power of a mother's connection to her child and of the fierce determination and dedication of a lover who, faced with unthinkable tragedy during the tender stages of a new and beautiful relationship, managed to create a sacred moment amidst the ravages of sepsis and the wounds of surgery to propose to her best friend.

Though Held Together ruthlessly explores dark and often fear-filled places, it is ultimately a celebration of human will, the value of community and the power of love. This book will inspire and light a path for every person caught in a struggle against all odds.

Personal Opinion:

Very often in many books, one finds a story in acknowledgements that it takes a village to write a book, and very often those villagers are more at the background than at the front. In this book, however, it really did take a village to tell the story of Jenny Q, an amazing and resilient woman who survived so many odds. In a number of ways, this is my first time in reading a memoir about an amputee, and a lot of things about her thoughts and experiences surprised me and educated me. Her friends and family heavily  advocated and fought with her through spiritual or physical means. There are many voices in HELD TOGETHER, many points of view, and all of them are focused on Jenny Q. What I find remarkable is perhaps the structure of the book, how in beginning of the tale, Jenny Q's friends and family tell what happened and their reactions, but as the reader reaches the end, more and more is told by Jenny Q and her life partner Myshkin. More than anything, its memoirs like HELD TOGETHER that will restore hope in these fractured and turbulent times.

G1033 Book Review of The Austin Paradox by William R Leibowitz

Name of Book: The Austin Paradox

Author: William R Leibowitz

ISBN: 9780989866293

Publisher: MMG

Part of a Series: Miracle Man is a prequel

Type of book: Medical thriller, deadly disease, morality, questions, medicine, terrorists, pharmaceuticals, secrets, intelligence, politics, modern times

Year it was published: 2018

Summary:

REVERED BY MANY, REVILED BY SOME
BUT NONE CAN DOUBT THAT ROBERT JAMES AUSTIN IS REMARKABLE

THE AUSTIN PARADOX is Book 2 in the award-winning, critically acclaimed, New York Times Best Selling MIRACLE MAN series that chronicles the remarkable saga of Robert James Austin, the greatest genius in human history, whose medical cures saved countless millions. A fully "stand-alone" novel, THE AUSTIN PARADOX can be enjoyed without having read the series’ first book.

In this emotionally-charged medical/psychological/conspiracy thriller, author William R. Leibowitz takes the reader on an unpredictable action-packed journey. The suspense doesn't let up as the fast paced twisting plots unfold and Austin battles Big Pharma which views him as their worst enemy, a CIA Director who is hell-bent on exploiting his genius, terrorists who lose control of a biological weapon, and a bevy of corrupt politicians and oligarchs.

William R. Leibowitz has been lauded as a "mastermind storyteller with a unique literary voice" and has been favorably compared by readers and critics to Michael Crichton, Robin Cook, Stephen King, John Grisham and Ken Follett.

THE AUSTIN PARADOX opens with Austin having lost his extraordinary intellectual powers in a laboratory explosion that was intended to kill him. Still in the prime of life, the blast cuts him down at the pinnacle of his brilliance and robs him of his tools. The greatest genius in history now struggles to find meaning in a life that has become devoid of purpose. 

Embarking on a journey of self-discovery in an effort to regain his abilities, Austin struggles with private demons that threaten his sanity, a government obsessed with controlling him, and metaphysical forces intent on destroying him. When ruthless political and business interests align to pose an existential threat to humanity, Austin is thrust into the maelstrom.
 
Doubted even by those who love him, Austin confronts a harrowing paradox as time runs out to save mankind from extinction.

THE AUSTIN PARADOX is the sequel to the critically acclaimed, award winning novel, MIRACLE MAN, which was named by Amazon as ONE OF THE TOP 100 NOVELS OF 2015, a TOP 10 BEST SELLING THRILLER and a TOP 10 NEW YORK TIMES/AMAZON BEST SELLER.

Characters:

Main characters include Robert "Bobby" Austin, a talented and savant man who has previously discovered cures for many incurable diseases. He is best described as dedicated and loyal no matter what happens to him and is basically seen as a saint, although he tends to be in denial about what happened to his lab in the previous book. He is also suspicious of media, and of government and pharmaceuticals. Other prominent characters include Gunther Ramirez who works as an assassin with important networking skills and also works for Colum McAlister who has personal vendetta against Austin. Colum McAlister is in charge of a pharmaceuticals company and cares more for money or blackmail rather than human life. There is also the doctor Mahmoud who has his own secrets and who agrees to develop the deadly disease as well as allowing himself to be blackmailed. There are some other characters, but I feel it would be more fun to discover them on one's own.

Theme:

The cure might be worse than disease

Plot:

The story is written in third person narrative from a lot of characters' points of view. Most of the time the readers are with the villains rather than the heroes, which tends to humanize Austin, or make the readers realize that Austin is not as omniscient as we are led to believe. It also simplified the plot and made it easier to follow. While from time to time Austin does have a voice, most of the book is voiced by his enemies and few times by the two women who love him most: Christina and Susan. Time tends to pass quickly in the book, and few times I was confused as to how many months or years passed since certain events have happened (For example when disease mutated to when Austin began to figure out the cure?) I do look forward to the future books if possible, and hope to see Austin's children being featured as prominent characters.

Opinion:

After finishing the first book, THE MIRACLE MAN, I immediately dived into this one. Yes, the previous one does need to be read in order to understand what is going on, but even if the reader doesn't, the book does a good job in informing one of the heroes and villains. While the previous book seemed to have Austin without limits, this one strongly reminds the readers that Austin is only human. Austin's past is glossed over and doesn't hijack the story. I found the story to be exciting and couldn't wait to see what happened next. In other words, THE AUSTIN PARADOX is a true medical thriller in my eyes.  Unfortunately I'm not sure of the accuracy of the jihad religion or their beliefs, but its a pretty scary thought about how a disease can be bred to control the population.
