Deadline - Professor John H Dunning

This story got my attention very early on and kept it the whole way through. It was a good story. I really like the way it sounded like an old detective novel only it is about a journalist. Walker is just starting work at the Tribune in New York but before he gets there he happens to see a fire and hears people screaming at a small carnival. A circus tent was on fire, the fabric going up like paper. He went to help and a fireman asked for his help carrying a small body out on a stretcher. It was the body of a young girl and seeing her young form affected him deeply. Later, as the number of deaths increased, he kept tabs on the story and was surprised to learn that no one ever came to claim the young girl's body. He had been given another story to work on but he wasn't interested. He began trying to figure out the identity of that little girl who was eventually buried in a pauper's grave by the coroner. He knew there must be a big story there and there was. It was so big in fact, that finding out might cost his life.

A Baby for the Billionaire - Victoria Davies

Walker has a surprise bundle that was not expected. He has not idea what that will do to his life from here on out. He calls in his best friend as an expert for help.

Clara has left the mother instinct behind, or so she thought. With helping Walker, she is finding what she wants more than her current life. Should she step up and tell him too?

This was such a sweet and sexy story. I do love best friend stories, and this was a delight to read. The characters have a solid connection, lots of sparks with heat, and lives of their own. Makes for a really great read.   I give this a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

***This early copy was given in exchange for an honest review by its publisher and Netgalley.

The Case for Easter: Journalist Investigates the Evidence for the Resurrection - Lee Strobel

Definitely the shortest book I've ever read, but possibly one of the most important. The author sets out and makes a very compelling and convincing case by interviewing experts in the field on the subject of the Resurrection as described in the Bible. This made a big impression on me, and I hope it does for others who read it as well.

Being a Journalist is all about Sharing the Truth

Journalism is a virtuous and honorable profession. The first and principal requirement of The Society of Professional Journalists Code of Ethics is "to seek truth and report it." It is their duty to discover the truth and share it with the public. Even though we are living in a corrupted world filled with lies, still journalists need, to be honest, stouthearted and assertive when they are gathering, reporting or interpreting certain news or information. When Joel Landau found his spotlight, he immediately knew that nothing can hold him back from it. However, some journalists don't necessarily strive to seek out to truth, regardless whether it is for their own personal gain, usually financial, or because they are reluctant to dig deep because of fear of the consequences. For Landau, and probably for many others, this is one of the best parts about this occupation.


Sharing the truth


Studying source journalism can provide you with plenty of career opportunities in newspapers, magazines, social media, television, radio, Internet multimedia, corporate and community journalism, from which you can choose from. Once you complete your formal education, you need to develop and enhance your understanding of the global field of journalism, since it is a must for every journalist. This includes learning the ethical standards and best practices that are needed for the process of newsgathering and compiling a news report. Such processes usually require peer-to-peer feedback, issue investigation, and active projects. Joel Landau, one of America's leading news respondents, loves being a journalist and has never doubted his choice to pursue a career in media.


Apart from seeking out the truth, Landau loves being a journalist because it allows him to see what's behind the scene, he gets to find out things by talking with all kinds of people and attending meetings that are usually closed to the public. All of these helps him form his own firm opinion and see the whole picture, and not just the filtered, refined result. Being a journalist comes with a number of perks such as being able to interview or talk with speakers and get first-hand information that others may never hear about, meet incredible people and be invited to exclusive events that are only for a selected group of people.

Landau Offers His Tips for Aspiring Journalist

Making a living from writing can indeed be tricky, but as times change it is becoming easier for people to pursue a writing career. There's more to a career in writing than being a journalist or novelist, especially nowadays when the business is booming. The first and foremost rule for every aspiring journalist is to never limit their career to stereotypes about what writers can do. With more than ten years of experience in this business, Joel Landau has become one of the leading news respondents, known for exploring various writing fields. His advice to those who want a career with words is to broaden their horizons and be open to even some less-known options.


In areas like web writing, internal communications and new business, most big companies have been employing their own writers for years now. The task of these writers is to help those companies win over new clients and contracts. Although your writing options should never be limited, still Joel Landau considers starting out as a specialist in a particular subject as an actual advantage. Acquiring some kind of training in order to be better and more creative writer can also be beneficial. However, getting a degree isn't always the answer because when it comes to making it as a journalist unfortunately there isn't a specific course to study, or a fast career path to follow.


Nowadays there are many courses that can help you refine and polish your writing skills, and of course there are also the old fashioned studies in English Language and Literature which can also help you start a career in journalism or creative writing. Joel Landau for example studied Political Science and Government, but that didn’t limit the course of his career, and although he started reporting in the legal industry, later on he was able to move to new topics and interests. There are number of ways to get started, and regardless which way you choose the most important thing is to be passionate and driven. Once you enter the world of writing, you’ll see those endless options that are waiting to be discovered.
