Mysti Parker will hopefully be with us next week to talk about her new WIP which will go into the hands and hearts of her BETA readers.  I finished her book one in the Tellenmere series and have the following tales in hand.

Here is my review and the link to picking it up on Amazon ~

A Ranger'sTale: Tellenmere, Book One is a stand alone tale. I bought and read when coin brought it into my kindle.  Parker's characters entwine the reader into one more chapter, just one more, and one more... finding a reluctance to leave, and then thankfully finding there are more tales to come.

There is a vulnerability to the heroine, a dilemma of two loves, a nasty parent, and an unexpected villain - it is how she twines the events together and the lovability of her major and minor characters that want you to go back into Tellenmere.

It is free to read, now - I would snap it up while it is and start the journey into a great series.  Yes, I bought them all.

And here is the cover:

Mr. Steven F. Freeman, Nefarious

Steve Freeman, author of Nefarious, book one of The Blackwell files finally sat down for an impromptu interview which your can read on my site, Paul and Paula's Books. Please check out this fairly new author and get on his ride while you need not run to catch up.

My reviews are always five starred because they are the books I finish, there are many I do not.  I also do not appreciate reading the story in a review, so my reviews will not reflect that either.

Nefarious is the first in the series, The Blackwell Files:

When I picked up Nefarious {hard copy, author signed}, I did not realize I would be in it for the long haul. This book, set in wartorn Afghanstan has many facets to draw different readers.  Like Horror, I seldom read war stories, but there was a fast connection with the main characters that had me hooked.  There is a mystery, there is suspense, there is a love story, but... going in, knowing this is a series, with a very satisfying stand-alone story, is a delight.

Mr. Freeman is a beginning author with a bright future. I have bought his second book, Ruthless, and his third, T Wave, which just gives me time enough to be ready for his fourth, Havoc, that is due out in August or September 2012.

He's an author I recommend and getting in on the ground floor is the best - it is apparent, he will prove to be, not only a proficient but prolific writer

Fistful of Bullies, part two

Fistful of Bullies by Paula Shene, part two
Part one at: http://thepeacockwriters.weebly.com/1/post/2014/03/fistful-of-bullies-part-one.html#.UynGOPldXVR The K-9 boys and girls were invited to witness a reenactment of a bullying episode that lead to the Naga dragon family move to Nixietown, a haven for the Faeries and their Friends.

 ~~~~~~~

 As the pack settled down to watch, the leading majorette turned the corner, holding her baton high, and the signal for the parade to begin. The float adorned with pixies, dressed as flowers, each flying around the float showed a young dragon playing tag with another, their laughter ringing out in a song of joy.

 The following floats showed a mom or a dad each working at their tasks, music of happiness from the dragons and the singing of the pixies in flight.

 A band of Elves and Pixies rounded the corner fighting, their music angry clashes, bangs, and booms and in the midst a float showing the parent dragons weeping out a song of despair.

 More bands dressed in raggedy clothes, they sang of losing work and home, moving into the poor part of Dragontown, without welcome.

We have no work and cannot pay our bills, 
All our garments are tattered, 
The house we call our home is gone, 
No welcome for us, 
Far too many roam in the caves, 
The ground is bare, 
no food to be found, 
All is stripped from the hills, 
All around us is poverty and despair


 An Ogre dressed in fine clothes, laughing, demanding the little they still had, while waving his gold cane. He, the ugly visitor knocking at the door of each home.

 “Intermission time,” sang two colorfully clothed faeries. They flew over the audience from back to front, finally hovering in front with a sign saying, Ten minutes to Pageant Part Two

 “I am glad they stopped,” Sophitia said, still with tears in her eyes, as they again sat to watch.

 “This is a true story, Sophitia. The family has moved here. It must be a happy ending if they moved to Nixietown,” soothed Shadow, “Listen… do you hear that? The music is happy.”

Playful music sounded as fairies and pixies flew around a float showing the young dragon building a castle in the sand. Suddenly, the music changed, the float stopped and in the sky appeared three larger, but young dragons.

 The music clanged as they dove at the young dragon, flattening the castle. Young Biscuit Naga fell to the ground and the other bigger dragons nipping at him.
