MI

I've been writing since I was 10. Just trying to get the chance to start my career. I have one book published under my belt, but I hide it under an invisible cloak along with my shame for naivete.

Looking forward to reading more!

I know we're not supposed to judge a book by it's cover...but this one delivers. The story unravels beautifully, threading through every character. The writing is descriptive, but not overbearing. Very punctual, I was impressed with the spelling and punctuation. Grammatically equivalent to a traditionally published novel. Though I've not finished reading as it is currently a work in progress, I breathlessly await for more updates.
The only downside is the POV switching with characters. Sweety M could get away with writing it in third person, just so we get clarification on who's who when we're switching scenes. I don't feel this book is one where we need to be too emotionally attached since there are multiple MC's, and part of the fun of a mystery is letting the reader connect the dots themselves with context clues. Just a thought.

As Twisted as Black Mirror

If you love Netflix' Black Mirror, then you'll love these short stories. These are the kind of stories to get you thinking while waiting with bated breath for the twist you know is coming, that always wraps up the story and leaves you feeling chilled, thrilled, or dazed.
My only problem is that I wish the stories were a bit longer, but then I;m the sentimental type of reader for character development. JB Ezar does an excellent job with his writing style and helping the reader to get to know the character despite the brief excerpts that they serve.
Should seriously consider writing a novel. I'd buy it. Short stories or nah.

Pure Gold

I just finished reading where there's only two excerpts, so I'm going to be waiting for more but this is everything poetry should be. Raw. Deep. Pure emotional gold. My favorite type of poetry has always been the kind to sound like a whisper, a low voice raw with emotion succumbed to the flow and rhythm of words as in awe. This was absolutely beautiful and I'll be waiting for more.

Heartbreaking

I haven't finished reading all of them yet, as they are mostly in sequence, but I am compelled already to write a review about this lovely series of poems that come together to form a story.
While there isn't much rhyme, some of the greatest poems in history are ones that capture the human heart and emotional brokenness that comes with losing someone you love. These poems unravel like a thread, and you feel you are spiraling out of control with the speaker in writing.
Salted tears is not for the faint of heart.

Reads like a published novel!

I'm going to start by saying I'm not too big a fan of erotica. It's always a hard genre to get me to fall into. My limit of experience/knowledge/taste doesn't go beyond Nora Roberts and Eloisa James.
But if you like erotica, this one's worth the read.
The first thing to pull me in is the technical writing style, composition, and format of the story. It's written well enough to be perceived as a published novel. (Normally, this is what grabs my attention. Some have a first line, a first hook. Me? Professional writing style.)
So I continued reading past the first sexual encounter we are thrown into, and I am immediately intrigued that it is by the male's point of view for the most part of the story. I'm a HUGE fan of this since reading Jamie Macguire's Walking Disaster, the sequel to Beautiful Disaster. Given that it's a YA novel instead of an erotica, this hyped up the experience of Craving Ali for me.
I thoroughly enjoyed it everything about this story, give or take a sex scene but it's...yaknow. An erotica. That's what an erotica is.
Unlike some of the other cheesier PUBLISHED eroticas I've read that have no form, no character arc, let alone a story or plot line, Craving Ali explores all of that and more, giving the characters arcs and a depth as well as amiable personalities that make them likable, lovable, and relatable. You gotta get this one published, girl. You have someone who'll buy the novel RIGHT...HERE.

Finished reading with a Heavy Heart

One of the hardest things any writer can accomplish is how to catch the heart. To manage to pluck the strings that are so sensitive yet so fickle when it comes to understanding how another feels. This is a tragic tale with a bittersweet ending, leaving you hanging and hoping as you are carried with the MC through her journey of grief for the first few days of her lover's death. Think if P.S. I love you showed the more heart-wrenching side of a funeral instead of a cheerful wake of Irish whiskey and song.

Very poetic

The writing is beautiful and poetic. Descriptions comparative to old literature. I'm usually into dark poetry like poe but these were pretty good! Very emotional

More Context PLZ

I really enjoyed reading this story. Not a huge fan of fantasy, but I loved the western feel to it. Kind of reminded me of the John Wayne movie UNDEFEATED with Rock Hudson.
Anyway, the writing style is fantastic. It is written very professionally, albeit maybe a little too much dialogue.
My only problem with it is that there needed to be more story in the story. I like to fall in love with the characters I read, but it was hard to follow who's who and what's going on due to how the story starts. I'm used to reading stories that start in the middle of conflict. It can be very interesting when coming up from one side's perspective, especially if you find out later the other side was less controversial and it makes you think. The premise of the fantasy war going on between Wolfe and Elf was interesting, as I'm used to the elves being portrayed as the all-powerful good guys and from their perspectives they're everything innocent when from ancient tales I hear they were more a corrupt kind that died out due to their own arrogance.
Well, a theory, anyway. Keep writing, though! I would love to read more of this story

A sweet short story

I usually don't care for short stories, but lately I find myself growing ever fonder. I'm discovering the unrecognized talent that comes with having to create characters the reader should care about, a plot that has all 3 acts, and a writing style that whirls the reader into a captivating ride.
It's something I find difficult, but Sabrina pulled it off in this short story. We get to recognize the feelings of the protagonist for her lover and peek into her thoughts and emotions as she speaks/thinks as if writing a letter. The ending had the gut punch I was hoping for. The only reason I didn't rate higher is because I thought it could've been a LITTLE longer, even for a short story, and I like to develop feelings for all the characters involved. I did enjoy this piece, and will be looking into more of her stuff.
