CEOs Don’t Cry – Joselyn Vaughn, Author

CEOs Don’t Cry – Review by Martha A. Cheves, Author of Stir, Laugh, Repeat

‘”Could this day get any worse?” Leslie Knotts muttered to herself, eyeing the watermark-circled hole in the ceiling tiles above her head. Thudding and muffled expletive rumbled from the hole. She yanked her cashmere scarf from her neck and stomped the slush off of her Prada heels. She took one look around her new office in the Carterville branch of Hanston and Boyd Accounting and gasped. This place was a mere phone call away from being condemned.

How can a city girl from Chicago be expected to take an office that is in such a rambling mess and be expected to turn it into a profitable branch? This is only one problem Leslie faces after being passed over for a junior partnership with Hanston and Boyd. Her dreams of becoming a CEO are pushed into almost non-existence after being transferred to a small town called Cartersville which exists out in the middle of nowhere. She had spent her whole life climbing the corporate ladder just to have one of her co-workers, Chuck, went behind her back and had her moved to this destitute town. Things couldn’t get any worse.

Oh but they can and they do. Leslie meets Mark, the nephew of the lady who owns the bed and breakfast where she will be staying while she brings the branch into the 21st century. Mark is a handyman who wants to start his own construction business. Leslie decides to hire him to basically revamp the full interior of the office, and she needs it finished before tax season starts in full force. Again, in steps Chuck to destroy her plans and dreams.

On top of all of her other problems, Leslie learns that there is a group in town called the Library Ladies and Mark’s Aunt Minnie is one of the ring leaders. Their purpose in life is to match unmarried men with unmarried women and their success rate is 100%. So, with Mark being single and Leslie being new to town as well as single, they make a perfect match. At least that’s what they think but Mark and Leslie have their own plans for their futures and marriage isn’t one of them. How do they fight the Library Ladies 100% success rate? You will have to read the book to find that answer.

CEOs Don’t Cry has everything needed to make an enjoyable, lighthearted romance novel. The humor provided by the Library Ladies will keep you smiling and laughing throughout the book. Leslie’s method of overcoming the obstacles bestowed on her are quite ingenious. Once I started reading CEOs Don’t Cry, I didn’t want to put it down. So what will Leslie do when the chance comes for her to have her life long dreams come true? You’ll have to read CEOs Don’t Cry to find the answer to that question.

Innovative Author Michael Robert Dyet Takes His Novel Until The Deep Water Stills to A New Level

October 11, 2009 at 4:35 pm (love, romance, Suspense Novels) (, , , , , , , , , , )


UDWS_book cover_LoRezFor Katherine Orr the words “I love you” are not enough. Only a demonstrative expression of her husband Jayce’s love can rescue their relationship. But Jayce’s personal demons prevent him from giving her this even though he knows that she is all that stands between him and a descent into chaos. Simultaneously, Bryan struggles to repair the breach of love in his life caused by the death of his daughter. But his wife, Jayce’s sister, grows ever more distant. Charismatic social activist Faith, who longs for love but fears she will lose herself in it, unwittingly becomes the catalyst for change in the lives of all four characters. The paths of these four converge toward a tragic event as each struggles to decipher the intricacies of love lost and love found. Each discovers in their own way that love is the living core of human existence and that how we love defines who we are. Until the Deep Water Stills weaves together memorable characters with a tightening web of external events. It ranges from lyrical to provocative in its narrative technique and from introspective to universal it its message. Metaphors weave throughout the narrative creating a layered and rich reading experience.

 

INNOVATIVE INTERNET-ENHANCED NOVEL FORMAT

 

Each chapter in the print novel has a corresponding entry on the companion website where readers can choose to expand their experience of the novel. The website offers secondary plot lines not found in the print novel as the characters find themselves with an actual online identity:

 

  • Katherine’s Photo Journal (text & photographs)
  • Jayce’s Diary (text & audio recordings)
  • Bryan’s Blog (under a pseudonym)
  • Faith’s Letters to Her Runaway Mother (text & audio recordings)

 

The reader can approach the book three ways: 1) Read the print novel only as it can stand on its own,  2) Alternate between the print novel and the website chapter by chapter,  3) Read the print novel first and then experience the website.

The Multi talented Ann B Author Brings Readers Three Exciting Books And All Three Are Vastly Different

September 11, 2009 at 1:19 am (Ann B Keller, dragons, fairies, historical, Magic, poetry, romance, scifi, Suspense Novels, western) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )


BriggenIn the first book of this exciting sci-fi/fantasy trilogy, Briggen, the brawny warrior prince, is plucked from a hostile planet by the powerful wizard, Quinhelm, beginning his desperate plunge into the midst of an interplanetary war. Briggen and Quinhelm rush home as the powerful Xandoth and their allies surge across the galaxy, killing and laying waste to everything they encounter. As Briggen confronts the evil Sorceress of Endih, squabbling nobles and an assassin on his home planet, the great dragon Ephereon abducts the good sorceress, Telana, instructing her in the ways of magic. To her astonishment, Telana learns that she is the Chosen One, the one foretold by the ancients to lead the people of Mantasi to a stunning victory. Telana joins forces with Briggen as they battle the Xandoth for supremacy over the planet. Will magic and courage triumph over the powerful forces of evil?

 

Devils CrescentIn The Devil’s Crescent, hardened bounty hunter Diego Montoya descends upon a small Texas village in the midst of a cloudburst and boldly plunges into the life of beautiful, small time cattle rancher, Maggie MacNaughton. Diego is a man haunted by a past filled with death and disappointment, a nobleman fleeing from the dictates of his demanding father and an arranged marriage. When a U.S. Marshall asks Diego to infiltrate a gun runner’s operation, Diego reluctantly agrees, shadowing the powerful land baron, Morgan Lansing. Morgan’s efforts play into the hands of a group of Mexican nationalists, who quickly claim the land vacated by the terrified settlers until only one parcel stands in the way of their march toward the border — the one occupied by Maggie MacNaughton. Diego and Maggie match wits and wills as the danger mounts. Only their reliance upon each other has the power to save them from a swift and certain death.

CrenellationsCrenellations is a marvelous collection of poetry that will enchant and inspire the reader to the greatest of human emotions. This is a seamless journey from the mist-enshrouded hills of Scotland to the peace of the Cathedral at York, from the mysterious Stonehenge to the sparkling vision of a fairy bower, and from dragons and wizards to the simplest of Earth’s creatures. May this journey be but the first step as we stride the path of greater knowledge, embracing all that we are and all that we may some day become.

The Path Toward Home By D.C. Jennings

August 18, 2009 at 9:22 pm (Suspense Novels, Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , , , )


PTHHurricane Katrina was a killer. Its passing destroyed not only homes and cars and boats, but it took a good chunk out of Gulf Coast people as well. Battering their hopes, shattering their dreams, drowning their already shaky security.

Cherisse Bernard’s family had been lucky. The storm that swept so violently through the south had missed their homes completely. Wind damage was minimal, flooding was nearly nonexistent, the death toll was at zero and unlikely to increase. But how long would that—could that—good fortune possibly last?

Now was the perfect time for Cherisse to make her move. She had three weeks in which to drive down to Louisiana , pack up her widowed mother and sister and get them safely ensconced in her Kansas City town-home before the next big storm blew in.

What Cherisse hadn’t planned on during those next three weeks was falling in love.  And not just with a man, for Lonnie Gaspard, Jr. was all that and more, but she also falls in love again with her birthplace. Cherisse learns that her hometown isn’t simply a spot on a map. It’s a people, her people, and the struggle to survive life’s storms is what keeps communities like hers alive and thriving despite the difficulties of living in hurricane country.
