Giving Thanks That I’m a Writer

Giving thanks that you're a writerThis is my favorite time of the year—a time to reflect and give thanks. This season reinforces how lucky I am to be a writer. It doesn’t matter if you’ve published or not. Pause for a moment and think about all that is great about being a writer.

by Sharon Karaa
Genres: paranormal romantic comedy
Available from and Amazon UK

Lauren Rutherford, the last descendant of the witch, Matthew Bulmer, stands alone to face a challenge to the death by three damned souls. Well. Almost alone. Agnes, her long dead ancestor, and the amazingly sexy male witch Daniel are here to help. Will they succeed and end the curse forever?

Book Excerpt:

“Ahh, you missed me, Lauren?” Satan sniggered, and I felt the familiar tug of attraction at his handsome features, naked chest and bulging loin cloth.

I started to chant, and this time, he changed in front of me, his glamour fading and leaving behind a four-foot-eight balding man with a thin frame. He was so thin and small, the loin cloth now looked like an oversized nappy.

I couldn’t help it. I laughed. Natalia smiled. Agnes, standing outside the immediate eyesight of Satan, waved her hand back and forth, shook her head and mouthed “No!” at us. I realised she was trying to warn us off and I looked quickly back at Satan. He growled and then looked down at himself.

“Awe damn it,” he said, sighing. “All right, you’ve got me,” he muttered, jumping down from the throne and almost losing his loin cloth in the process.

“Every character has their own lovable quirks and just about jump right off the page with such brilliant personalities.” – Sky, Amazon Reviewer

Authoright – Authorwrong?

authoright-logo@2x1A recent inquiry in a group I belong to prompted me to do some investigating into Authoright, a company with offices in both the U.S. and U.K, which offers publishing and marketing services to Indie writers and authors.

They listed the services they offer, from various levels of editing, book covers and web design to marketing package choices that range from regional to international (North America and the U.K.). The first red flag for me was that they did not publish any prices on the site. Continue reading “Authoright – Authorwrong?”
