Day Two Authors and Bloggers Against Piracy Blog Tour

Now, that's some sad statistics, isn't it? If we 'borrowed' food from a grocery store or restaurant, we'd be arrested. If we 'borrowed' from any sales place, we'd be arrested.

Years ago, I bought a magazine. It had an article on how to save money. I hadn't delved into professional writing yet, but I was insulted by one of the ways to save: share books and magazines. I'm not saying this is totally wrong, but think about the money the companies would lose if we all shared all our books and magazines.

Sure. Borrow your friend's book if you want to read it. Leave a review for the author. If you really enjoyed the book, get your own copy, but don't use freeby sites that pirate books.

Rebekkah Ford (Beyond the Eyes, Book One)

Blurb: Paige knows evil exists in this world, but she never imagined it would want something from her.

In the small town of Astoria, Oregon, surrounded by deep forest and endless mountains, another world thrives . . . a menacing one where dark spirits dwell in soulless humans. Seventeen-year-old Paige Reed lives in this lush, picturesque setting. She's not your average teen, though she appears to be. Not only is she heartsick, but she's been receiving cryptic premonitions from a ghostly voice since the age of four. After she hears a haunting message about herself, supernatural occurrences begin to confuse her.

Nathan Caswell seems to peer into Paige's soul, evoking a magnetic energy between them they cannot deny. They're connected. But he's no ordinary guy. He tracks dark spirits and becomes alarmed when they set their sights on Paige. 

When two power-hungry malevolent beings make demands on her, she realizes then the fate of mankind rest in her hands. Her world quickly turns inside out where the impossible becomes possible, and in the end she's faced with a life changing decision that will not only alter her existence but the world as she knows it.

Can a deeply troubled teen overcome her own demons in order to fight those lurking about? With the past and present colliding, Paige must make the ultimate mortal choice. Will it be the right one?

Bio-  Rebekkah Ford grew up in a family that dealt with the paranormal world. Her parents Charlie and Geri Wilhelm were the directors of the UFO Investigator's League in Fairfield, Ohio. They also investigated ghost hauntings and Bigfoot sightings in addition to extraterrestrial cases. Growing up in this type of environment and having the passion for writing stories is what drove Rebekkah at an early age to write tales dealing with the paranormal world. Her fascination with the unknown is what led her to write the Beyond the Eyes trilogy and Tangled Roots.

Rebekkah resides in rural North Dakota, in a farming community of about 1,800, and loves where she lives. She has an irreverent sense of humor, adores coffee, and yummy food makes her happy. She loves books, history, antiques, animals, connecting with her fans and other authors, and watching her favorite TV shows.

Book Review Slightly Off the Mark by Mark R Hunter

I just finished one of the most enjoyable books, Slightly Off the Mark, The Unpublished Columns by Mark R Hunter.

The book is available in Kindle for $1.98 or paperback for $8.75.

I've been a fan of Mark's works for years. Check out his Amazon page for all the books he's written:
Amazon Mark R Hunter
While you're there, be sure to click the follow link.

Mark has a great sense of humor, and it shows up in all his writings.

In 'Slightly Off the Mark,' he has taken a collection of his unpublished articles and made them into a book, and they are indeed very funny. I read the entire book with a smile on my face when I wasn't laughing out loud - which was quite often.

Mark covers a wide variety of topics in this book and somehow finds humor in everything he writes.
I thoroughly enjoyed the sections on the winters in the Midwest, the Oz books and museum, and his political/anti-political stories.

I thought of putting excerpts here, but you really should read each article to catch the true and full humor.

I liken Mark to Mark Twain's quirky sense of humor so you know I loved reading this book.

Each article is short - 2 to 4 pages and each one is definitely funny and well worth your time.

Take a moment, purchase the book, kick back and have fun reading this delightful book.

I recommend it to everyone. Kudos, Mark, on another successful book.
