The Desire To Inspire

I was honoured to chat with the founder and director of this foundation, Dawn Witte.
She has such positivity in everything she says and wears her heart on her sleeve. She sees the good in everything and can always turn the negative into a positive just by her smile and speech. You can feel her love and compassion radiate from her. She has such a light inside her, that you can’t help feeling joy when talking with her. She’s all about love and wants to help and give out this positivity to as many people as she can. After my chat with her, I now think of her as an Earth Mother. Watch the video to understand why.

Who is Behind The Pen?

I chat with Linwood Jackson, a poet and author of an upcoming YA fantasy novel. But Linwood is more than just a writer. He’s a speaker of philosophy a teacher of love but not the literal kind of love.
His thoughts and beliefs can be confusing to some but he has a clear vision and that comes out in his poetry and across in the chat we have.



BIO:

Linwood Jackson Jr. is an author writing on mental and spiritual health, and on its life-altering benefit. He is someone who believes in the power of the Bible’s words when sincerely exercised and studied. Through his books, speeches, and discourses, he encourages to think and feel for self, that self-love may bloom into self-possession through the knowledge acquired from experience. This, he says, betters the personal and devotional life not only for the person but also for all around them.

An empty seat and a love that can withstand the trials of fate…

When Raquelita Muro takes the empty seat on the bus to avoid sitting beside her mother, she doesn’t expect to find the love of her life. But as the hours pass by on the journey from Texas to Florida, Raquelita knows that Matthew Buchanan is the one for her.

Except fate, the US Military, and an interfering mother stand between the young lovers and their destiny.

Exchanging letters in secret is their only hope as Matthew ships off to Vietnam and Raquelita and her family make a new life for themselves in Florida. And when tragedy strikes they will each be brought to the edge of what they can survive.

The course of true love never did run smooth, but will Matthew and Raquelita find each other again when half a world and an ocean of pain stand between them?

“The timeframe of this novel encompasses the Vietnam War, and Matthew will experience hardships that threaten his happiness with Raquelita. The subject is handled with respect and lends another level of emotion to this engaging book.

Ms. Saccenti writes beautifully. “They sat in silence, each immersed in the other. Words would only be superfluous. And as Raquelita and Matthew reposed, the wizened old oak, with its ancient, shading limbs, enclosed the lovers within its benevolent protection for a long, long, while.”

Passages such as this are throughout the book and brought a smile to this lover of words. 5 stars.”

There’s a thin line between love and revenge

There are two main players in this novel. However, even the side characters are just as important.
Joe is an ex-marine who is out for revenge and then there is Hunter, who is penned as a whore and man user, when in fact, she is the total opposite. Only when men’s egos get damaged, they find a way to fight back. Thus she’s left with a reputation she doesn’t deserve.

With a wonderful backstory and the plot coming together, the author then throws in sex and submission.
Joe is a dominant. He lives the lifestyle and has two regular submissives who he plays with.
Determined to get his revenge on the innocent Hunter, he soon discovers that she is a born submissive and is perfect for him. Someone he never even knew he was looking for.
But they both hold secrets that need to be told. Who will break first? And how much more damage can it cause to two broken people?

The author does a great job of explaining the dynamics of a dominant and a submissive relationship.
This is the perfect book for those that love reading hot sizzling sex scenes.
Who would turn down Joe’s command? I know I wouldn’t.

The author will open your mind to this world, and the amazing writing will have you picturing yourself in Hunter’s place or you guys, being the dominant Joe.
Each scene is carefully mapped out. Each character in this book plays a crucial role.
Is there a happy ending for Joe and Hunter? You’ll have to read this book to find out.
I read it in two sittings and I only put it down because I was forced to.
A great read and I look forward to more hot novels by this author.

Excerpt 

One day, several years later, Jorge was out hunting with Josie. The King’s music filled the air, and Jorge stopped and lowered his bow. Its mournful song tore into his soul with its beauty.
The musical notes had become transparent, accompanied by a myriad of rainbow colours. Every time he saw them, their beauty grew.
Josie watched him gazing into the air for a moment and then said, “You’re seeing them, aren’t you?”
Jorge nodded. He could never be untruthful to the girl he would eventually marry. “Soon I shall join the others and visit the castle to watch the King play.”
“But your parents forbade you,” she reminded him.
“I don’t want to hurt them, but the music calls me, Josie. I have no choice. One day soon, I must go.”
“Then I will accompany you. You should tell your parents what you intend to do.”
Jorge agreed, and, when they returned home, he said goodbye to Josie and decided now was the time to tell his parents.

The only film that grabbed my attention and held me there with an open mouth, was the amazing Lord of the Rings trilogy.

They said that whoever took that 3-book fantasy on, had to be crazy. Peter Jackson wasn’t crazy, but he was a hobbit in his heart.

His vision and attention to detail just made this magical film pop.
It was after watching the first film, Fellowship of the Ring, that the story of Becky and her magical adventure took place in my mind, heart and soul.
By the time the 1hr journey from the cinema had ended I had the names, plot, conflicts, storyline, everything written in my head. and then as most writers know, once you’re in the “zone” there is no stopping you.  By the time the second film, Two Towers, book two, The Quest was again plotted in my mind and it didn’t take long to get the first draft on paper.

REVIEW

“The Quest by Karina Kantas is the sequel to her book Illusional Reality. Becky is once again pulled from England back to the world of Tsinia where she is The Princess. Thya is Becky’s name in this astonishing fantasy world. Thya is the only one who can save her people and their land. They have been forced to leave their magical land and live in caves to survive. The world along with the characters are fleshed out even more with the addition of more monsters and characters and magic. You travel with Thya and a couple others through trials and tribulations which are expertly created to make their Quest either successful or a failure. Her magic becomes even stronger but alas there is a dark side to it that she has trouble controlling. This is a definite page turner. You will become completely invested in Thya and her companions surviving and making it back to Tsinia. The action is nonstop as Thya and her companions run into many intriguing problems. I loved both books. If you like fantasy worlds that take you away these are just the books you need.”

EXCLUSIVE EXCERPT

 City of Helkon
The door to the cell unlocked and Thya stood up. King Theon slowly entered. Almost cautiously. With his hands on his hips, he tilted his head and his eyebrows creased. The king pointed to her and then to a bowl that his servant held out. Thya peered into it and saw the same glittery substance that she had used in the throne room. It seemed stupid to refuse him. She did as she was told and, once the spell touched her lips, Theon’s words became clear.
“Rotate,” he commanded.
She turned around as instructed. A Rant pushed her hair aside, exposing her bare back and neck.
“Tis so then,” Theon exclaimed.
Thya turned around to face him. “What is so?”
He bent his head to the side, and his eyes widened. “You are not aware?” He stepped back. “Yet you possess the ancient emblem.”
“What ancient emblem? Will you not reveal the significance?” She would not beg even though she needed answers.
Theon’s sudden change of behaviour concerned her. His stance and facial expressions went from awe to surprise, then almost to fear. His head tilted again, and his hand rested on his chin as he walked around her.
“Do you not comprehend your greatness? Do you not realize who you are?”
“Of course, I am Queen Thya of Tsinia, Guardian of the Changlins.”
“Have you not marvelled at the difference with yourself and that of other Ganties? Surely you have experienced strength and a will that cannot be bested?”
“With certainty.”
“You possess the emblem.”
“What emblem?”
“Upon your back.”
“Tis naught but a birthmark.”
“Nay, Queen. You are mistaken. The mark as you name it, is an emblem of exceptional greatness. I understand now why your thoughts were blocked from me. Immortality appears with a value. I wonder what you would bestow for the quest of eternal youth?”
Nothing he said made sense to her but, before she could demand answers, the King jumped up and down and rubbed his hands like an excited young boy. “I will present you to the Bustak, as homage,” he said, rubbing his hands together as a huge smile etched on his face.
His next words were foreign to her. The magic of the spell had worn off, so she just stood and watched the Rant and the king communicate, hoping to get an idea of what was going to happen next.
Theon grinned and patted the guard’s back. They spoke briefly and nodded their heads as they continued to stare at her. She wished she understood. Who or what was the Bustak? The name raised goose pimples on her arms, and the belief that this was, again, the end of the road for her returned.
The guard led her from the cell and back into the palace. There were no shackles, no Rant gripping her arms. They walked beside her but kept glancing at her. She ignored them and concentrated on calling out with her mind. Alkazar, my love, where are you? She repeated it over and over, with no knowledge of whether he could hear her but, if he had, there was no answer.
