Portent's of Mother's Gate

These poems are wonderfully rhythmic.
In a world of my own creation, they would be considered historical prophecy and repeated at every opportunity to remind us of the impeding events long before ordained.

The rhyme schemes lend ease to memorization and although these are an adjunct to other books in a series, it is worthy of an indulgent read, especially when read aloud.

I wound recommend these as must read if you are reading the author's other books and an interesting read which would call me to read the series.

Fated

The tale of Evie has already been blessed with some interesting twists. Characters are already well drawn, and the plot is moving forward with excellent pacing. I can't wait to read the next chapter and find out which wolf is Evie's fated mate. Even more important will she allow her own talent as a witch to blossom?
Hmm that sound like a great blurb, and I would urge anyone with an interest in wolves and romance to give this one a read.

Caught in an Online Game

The action and plot of this story is awesome with the mix of real life relationships that are stuck in alternate reality. This could use a quick edit for mistakes such as wrong words and grammar, with surprisingly few spelling mistakes.

Great read so far,

Radio City Awards

This is a stellar idea. I'm always one for finding ways to write new ideas and gain advice and constructive criticism. Thank you for coming up with an amazing format. 4 days to write 2500 words is a challenge and gets a writer to dig into the creative well of concepts.

I would recommend this to anyone who is working on their technique as a writer.

Book of Poems

The common theme of love binds this collection of poems.

All the wonderful and and the same time painful aspects of the emotion over the course of life are explored.

I found it thought provoking, and at the same time memory evoking of times and experiences of my own life.
Take a trip into this collection.
It is most definitely a winner.

Bound to the Killer

This is a nice little thriller.
I'm pleased to say it came in 3rd place in the Mystery/Thriller genre of The Coalition Awards.

I was reeled right into the story with the sudden kidnapping the main character endured. The twists and turns that come afterward, are horrifying and engaging.

Great character development is combine with intense description which makes events vivid in the reader's imagination.
I would recommend this book to anyone who likes suspense.

A Game of Hide and Seek

Congratulations on your 2nd place win in the Mystery/Thriller genre of the Coalition awards.

This is a fast paced detective story, in which our hero is in pursuit of a serial killer. The plot twists and turns as he tries to gather clues and in between his relationships with his fiance and his friends and co-workers are explored.

Technically, this story needs a good edit with an eye to correcting grammar and punctuation, but the problems do not detract from an excellent who done it.

The Love You Choose

Let's get the technical stuff out of the way first. Your skills are excellent and I have no complaints about grammar, etc. You've got great editing skills.

Your Title is bang on and I like your cover. The blurb reeled me right in. So great marks for those too.

You weave a complex portrait of two friends who don't even understand how deeply they love each other and how their families have given them exactly the right upbringing to make them great parents.

Lynne's unexpected pregnancy might just be the push they need to make the leap to being in love.

Keep writing. I want to know how this turns out. Will they admit that they don't need to be :;in love' to have the feelings that make for love that keeps them together for life?

Please finish the story.

Love Autumn`

I found the story line intriguing. Reincarnation or rebirth, especially when the one who is reborn doesn't remember her past life, is always a captivating way to add intrigue to a story.
This one is really good at introducing all the twists and turns it can bring. Her lover from a past life is seeking her again, she's got a love interest already in her new life. How this resolves is going to be and exciting journey.
With a little polishing through editing for grammar, flow and punctuation, this is going to be and outstanding novel.
I know I want more chapters.

While You Sleep

I realized the title was significant when I read about the dreams.

This story is well written, I love how it ends and how it brings the idea that love transcends everything to life

I'd recommend it to anyone for a good read with a strong tug on the heart strings.

The entire story centers around the main character and later ghost and her struggle to survive her father's abuse. When she dies giving birth, the horror continues as she fights to get away from his ghost.

I'm pleased to announce this story won first place in Mystery/Thriller genre at the Coalition Awards.
The tension developed as her surviving husband fights to finished their dream house so she can move on out of limbo, is artfully drawn to an exquisite tension.

As I said in my original review. This is a good read and tugs the heart strings.

I can't say enough about the world Lora Tia has built. Her imagination is superb and the flow of her writing keeps pace with action, dialogue and description easily included as she develops unique characters to populate her world. I can't wait for the next chapter. I highly recommend her work.

A feast of Consequences

An excellent mystery. An excellent romance as well. Suspense as well as we go through the fire.

There were some very minor typos along the way, but nothing more than one finds in any published work.

I do hope there is a sequel which explains why Walt was set up in the first place and brings the true murderer to justice.

I would recommend this to anyone who loves a good read.

An excellent short story about the uncertain times after a war, when men trained to kill are left to find their own way.

It takes a strong man to right the wrong.

Awesomely well written.

Theodore

Good basic concept. I'm caught in the conflict already. Highschool undercurrents are well done. Just needs a tiny bit of editing to make it truly awesome.
