In the Woods
In The Woods - Jessica Mallory,Thomas Washburn Jr

by Thomas Washburn Jr

 

Three children, Travis, Timmy and Abby, find a cave in the woods and make it their secret clubhouse. Though they are close friends, approaching puberty introduces complications, especially after Abby gets her first boyfriend.

 

This started out like a sweet story of childhood friends coming of age. Then one day Travis finds a secret door and things go horribly wrong.

 

This was a short story that could have been developed into something more interesting. As it was, it became tacky and cliché without even an end twist to recommend it. The writing itself was good but there was a lack of plotting or explanation and in the end, it seemed like someone's first efforts.

 

The quality of writing gets it an extra star.

Rereading my work, pt 2
The Naga Queen's Heart - Mallory Kellogg

I really enjoyed writing about Basilla. She's so fun to create. Bold, loud and bossy, yet very loving and kind. I have to get the kinks worked out for the final book. I have the climax down, but there's a lot that needs to lead up. I tend to do my best writing when I get over some sort of illness.

Rereading my work
The Dragon God's Son: 1 (The Gods of Myth) - Mallory Kellogg

I've been really sick with a migraine since my surgery. Wither I'm nauseous or I'm in so much pain I wanna die. Sorry I haven't been around much. I'm getting better, thank God.

 

Anyway, I have been rereading my works because I can't remember a lot of the details. I really want to finish this trilogy so I need to get as much correct as I can. And of course I found a few type-o's. Man, i never can get them all.

The Lady From The Black Lagoon by Mallory O'Meara
The Lady from the Black Lagoon: Hollywood Monsters and the Lost Legacy of Milicent Patrick - Mallory O'Meara

A powerful, moving biography about the life and works of Milicent Patrick, the uncrowned First Lady of monster design and the artist responsible for Universal's iconic Creature of the Black Lagoon.

Mallory O'Meara brings her personal heroine to life and light with the dedication of a true detective, as Patrick's story holds mysteries beyond how she had her brightest moment snuffed out by Hollywood's sexist motion picture industry, and proves herself to be as strong as her subject matter.....exposing how very little as changed over the years. She deserves widespread acclaim for giving back Milicent Patrick to the world, and placing her in the limelight she earned but never knew in life.

Truly two incredible women. Get to know them.

Highest possible recommendation.

Really engaged me
Beauty and the Brooding Lord - Sarah Mal... Beauty and the Brooding Lord - Sarah Mallory

What if the assault on a woman has a lasting influence? What if attraction didn't just wipe out trauma?  Not something handled often in romance novels but this one did.

 

Serena Russington wants to go to Vauxhall with Sir Timothy Forsbrook when he plies her with alcohol and takes off for Scotland.  When they stop for the night he assults her but doesn't get very far before her screams attract the brooding Lord Quinn.  He rescues her and brings her home to his house.  She's very traumatised but finds that Lord Quinn is a comfort.  When she returns to her older brother and his wife, who are her guardians.her assulter does everything in his power to paint himself as the aggrevied party and to paint her in a very bad light.  Her sister-in-law reinforces how she thinks Serena behaved very badly.  Eventually Quinn offers for her hand, but what she finds with him is less rude than his reputation would suggest.

 

Lord Quinn is such a good character, he's so patient and understanding and really wants the best for her, even if it does take him a while to realise why.  

 

Loved it, could barely put it down, really enjoyed the read and would recommend it.
