Great men of war makes…..

Great generals, great men of war make pisspoor lovers. Oh well, I guess we all can’t be great lovers. Someone must protect the ladies while others bed them.~ Giacomo Casanova

Giacomo Girolamo Casanova was an Italian adventurer and author from the Italian Republic of Venice. His autobiography, Histoire de ma vie, is regarded as one of the most authentic sources of the customs and norms of European social life during the 18th century.

Casanova Quote great lovers

 

He was referring to Napoleon Bonaparte when he said this. Napoleon was a great fan of Casanova.

I hope everyone is out of Imelda’s Path

We find ourselves watching out for the well-being of  family and friends again this year. There’s a deadly storm spewing in the Gulf of Mexico and has hit Texas and several other nearby states. I hope everyone is out of Imelda’s Path. And for those whom are caught up in the storm. I pray God is with you.

But the hurricane season isn’t over. Far from it. There’s another storm spewing in the Atlantic, Hurricane Jerry, it continues to strengthen as it reached hurricane status on Thursday Sept. 19,. With a potential track that could slam the Leeward Islands, Jerry is the 10th named storm and the fourth recognized hurricane of 2019 Atlantic season.

The storm’s growing power prompted parts of the Leeward Islands to issue tropical storm watches, with tropical storm conditions expected within 36 hours. Up to 6 inches of rain could fall in some areas.

THE KIRKWOOD SCOTT CHRONICLES: Skelly’s Square

 

I was reading the excerpt of this book and it seems very intriguing.  I haven’t read it yet but I’m about to read it.  This one is the next on my to- read list. I have a system that works well for limited time to read so many books.

As everyone who read my blog regularly, knows that I read every genre I can find. I don’t  have a favorite genre. I find you can learn something from every thing if you dare to look at it. I find reading a wide variety you can learn and be fully satisfied with reading…well with me, it takes more than one genre to appease my reading appetite. 🙂

Paulo Coelho- Eleven Minutes

“Passion makes a person stop eating, sleeping, working, feeling at peace. A lot of people are frightened because, when it appears, it demolishes all the old things it finds in its path.

No one wants their life thrown into chaos. That is why a lot of people keep that threat under control, and are somehow capable of sustaining a house or a structure that is already rotten. They are the engineers of the superseded.

Other people think exactly the opposite: they surrender themselves without a second thought, hoping to find in passion the solutions to all their problems. They make the other person responsible for their happiness and blame them for their possible unhappiness. They are either euphoric because something marvelous has happened or depressed because something unexpected has just ruined everything.

Keeping passion at bay or surrendering blindly to it – which of these two attitudes is the least destructive?

I don’t know.”
Paulo Coelho, Eleven Minutes

Naming Books is harder than it seems

When naming a book we want to come up with something memorable as well as chic, snazzy, and tells the storyline.

It’s easier said than done.

We all have seen and read titles of books seemingly having nothing to do with the storyline. A book’s title could be a summary of the story. The popular trend today is one word titles. One word title may work well for some subjects but not every subject.

Listed below are a few books that have gained fame from a one word title.

 

 

 

  • Island
  • Dracula
  • 1984
  • Scarlet
  • Moby
  • Frankenstein
  • Beloved

I hope Hurricane Dorian pass you by

I know that some of you are in the path of Hurricane Dorian. Sadly, it has taken the lives of seven people so far and I pray for those families. I hope all of you stay safe.

Those it hasn’t reached yet. I hope it pass you by.

Converting long novels into eBooks.

Transforming long novels into eBooks?? Is it a good or back idea?

Well, that depends on who you ask. Different people have different reading habits. Some people like long eBooks and some do not.

Most early eBooks were less than 100 pages which I think has given the impression that all ebooks are short. I have come across many that can be read in less than two hours.

However many are not. Especially, those written by well-known writers who makes a serious living from their writings. Most of their readers begun reading their works on paper therefore it’s going to be longer than a typical eBook.

I haven’t read this one yet and hope to get around to it, but it was recommended to me by a reader of my own books wanting to know why can’t my main character Ana BuFaye be more like this character?

From reading the excerpt of this book, the plot of the UnHoly Pursuit is vastly different from Loving the Wrong Man.  Well, many would say Ana is definitely in love with the wrong man.

I try to give different genres a read. You never know— you just might like it.

Stop Killing

I’m not the author of the poem but it’s true. The subject of this poem was recently being  discussed. The speaker was talking about how people do not realized that their words can cost someone their life. That if you lie on someone, causing them to be killed you are as much a murderer as  a person firing a gun, waving a knife, or any other weapon. People seemed to think if their words cost another their life they aren’t a murderer because they didn’t directly commit the act and the listener didn’t have to do it based solely on their words. That’s true but there are lot of unstable people in the world.

Foremost, people are aware they can harm another by lying. That’s why they lie. They do this to cause the person harm. If the lie cost an individual their life, then so be it.

For this very reason, in some states and parts of the world, if caught, a murder can drag you into the scenario of sharing his or her fate if they inform the courts that your words inspire them to kill or put the person in danger to be killed. Having an accomplice usually lessen their sentence or can save their life.


STOP KILLING

If you tell a lie,
And someone is killed,
You are a killer;
You have killed;
If you fan a flame
And someone is killed,
You are a killer;
You have killed;
Stop killing people;
Remember
Thou shall not kill;
Though shall not expose someone
To be killed.
Let us stop killing
One another!

Who benefits
When you kill me?
And someone kills you
For killing me?
And someone kills them
for killing another?
It all becomes stupid.

Stop Killing
