ReBlog – He Said, She Said: Comments on Dialogue in Fiction | Kobo Writing Life

ReBlog – Some say ‘said’ is dead but others say it’s really the only way. I’m on the fence. I’d hate to say I wouldn’t use a style of writing. I think everything has it’s place.

Overall, it’s an interesting article. It covers -ly use and letting the dialogue speak on its own but mainly focuses on using simply ‘said.’

By Nathan Dodge (A slightly different version of this article originally appeared in the eZine Reflection’s Edge) What makes a writer effective in writing fictional dialogue? Why is it that some au…

ReBlog – All The Games – Lo-arna Green

Sheri is a free spirit who picks herself up and keeps going no matter what situation she finds herself in. One thing—or person—who does manage to bother her when little else does is Link, her older brother’s friend. He burrows under her skin and stays there.

“I  don’t know how he ended up hating me as much as he does. But one thing is for certain, Lincoln cannot stand the sight of me.”

Sheri isn’t one to shy away from a challenge and she has a big one on her hands with her brother, Pat. When things worsen with Pat, she is forced to swallow her pride and enlist Link to help her, the two put aside their bickering and work together. Tensions and emotions reach epic heights.

Sheri can’t seem to commit to anything solid with sexy and attentive Drew even when he makes it clear he wants her by his side. But something is missing. A spark? Seething hatred perhaps? Is the hatred between her and Link merely a mask for passion and longing? Dive into Sheri’s journey to see if she gets her happily ever after.

ReBlog – All The Darkness – Lo-arna Green

Nate knew a life of colour when he had Stella by his side.

Now she’s gone, her life cut short, he sinks deep into darkness when he discovers who is responsible.

He leaves town and leads a quiet life keeping to himself, not feeling he deserves anything more than just merely existing, in all the darkness.

Edie is trapped in her life, made prisoner by those who are meant to love and protect her.

She is drowning in a quicksand she can’t breathe in. She’s lost her voice, her strength, her self-esteem.

When these two cross paths, they’ll both wonder if they deserve happiness. Can they make their way out of the darkness and to happiness with each other?

ReBlog – Meet the Author (Lo-arna Green Interview) – SILVER BEANS CAFE ​THE ULTIMATE BOOK CLUB

Hello to all of you out there in the SBC universe. My name is Royal and today I had the pleasure of interviewing a writer who I’m sure you all will find to be extremely fascinating. This interview features celebrated writer Lo-arna Green. Here is what Lo-arna had to say to us here at SBC when we sat down with her for her interview.

So Lo-arna let’s start the interview with this question, WHAT GENRE do you write in? Why?

Romance mainly. They were always my favourite to read. Romance and horror.

And what are the TITLES OF YOUR BOOKS Lo-arna?

Released book titles are All The Colours, All The Darkness and All The Games. They are a series, each focusing on a different character within that circle of friends. I have one more planned for the series and have a few others I am working on at the moment.

ReBlog – Meet the Author (Vania Rheault Interview) – SILVER BEANS CAFE ​THE ULTIMATE BOOK CLUB

Hi everyone, it is Jacks.  Today, I am stopping in to share an incredible interview.  I had the delight of sitting down with the very talented and highly refreshing author Vania Rheault.  I was excited before our chat to read more from her, but now after our exhilarating exchange I cannot wait for her book release!  Let’s hear what she had to say:

Hi Vania!  Welcome to Silver Beans Café.  We are pleased to have you here today.  Thank you for taking time out to meet with us.  Having said that, let’s get this interview started.

So Vania, how about we GET TO KNOW YOU better.  Can you tell SBC what genres you write?

I write a mix of genres. Right now I am preparing to release a romance/fantasy. I am also editing a contemporary romance and writing its companion. I have a five book fantasy series almost finished that I plan to edit and possibly independently release next year. I also have an idea bouncing around my head for a young adult novel. I’m not sure when I’ll get to that, though.

They all sound like great reads.  You are going to have your hands busy.

So, let’s talk about your novellas that are about to be released.  I know you mentioned that it is one cover and two books inside, WHAT ARE THE TITLES?

The titles of my indie novellas that will be released at the end of June are called 1700 Hamilton, and On the Corner of Hamilton and Main.Great titles!
