  2. Just finished Tequila Rose Virginity Blues by Wendy Jane. What a fun story. Had me laughing end to end. I posted it on Amazon and within minutes they pulled it down. Here is the 5 star review

    Tequila Rose Virginity Blues by Wendy Jane

    I just finished the short story Tequila Rose Virginity Blues by Wendy Jane and could not wait to pen a few notes. First off let me tell you I loved the story. I am always on the side of those characters who have over imbibed and must now face the physical and mental consequences. Very seldom are these sessions written free of clichés. This story is an exception. The opening scene of the book is a reaction to a knock. Then there are two more, and Tequila Rose is forced to open the door. What pops in is every drinker’s nightmare. It is a handsome someone who not only knows Tequila’s name but some details of the previous night. Tequila Rose is flummoxed since she cannot remember the guy or his name.

    The rest of the story is a laugh out loud series of Tequila Rose trying to get a grip on herself and the handsome guy who knows her better than she knows him. Included are hysterical scenes of drunkenness taken by cell phone and posted on social media for all to see. To add to the laugh fest, her friend who delights in Tequila’s episodes convinces her to take part in a charity speed dating event.

    Wendy Jane will keep you laughing through the competition and then serves up a to die for ending.

    If you enjoy reading quality writing, this book is for you. I think a little bit of me fell for Tequila Rose since I have walked in her shoes.

      Hi John. Amazon ought to be ashamed of themselves and need to be called out on it. I have Tequila Rose and saw on facebook where Wendy got an award for it.

      1. The sad part is you cannot call Amazon out on anything. They totally ignore complaints on reviews.

          If we had the time, we could do something. They count on us not having or taking the time. It can be done. People have more power than we credit ourselves with. Anyway its all very frustrating. They haven’t touched me so far.

    My review of Death Song of the Sea by April Taylor is posted in Amazon – Celtic Magic
    This is a bittersweet and engaging short story of power and consequence. Steeped in folklore and ancient myth. I enjoyed reading it, and recommend it to readers who like paranormal and fantasy books.

  15. Read and reviewed A Perilouos Thirst. In a short story, it’s hard to capture a character with all his aspects. He does know what he wants–the man happens to be sitting next to him–and what he intends to do with him. As Karen Ingalls pointed out, “A most iteresting twist….” I reviewed it on Amazon.

  16. Just finished reading A Perilous Thirst by Rhani D’Chae. A most interesting twist from the usual vampire stories. Good job.

    Rhani D’Chae knoiw how to weave a tale from the first person point of view. The main character is diligent in his performance and knows what he desires in life. We begin in a bar where the first words are spoken and his ingenious mind displays who he is and what he is truly after. I’d love to see more of this character and how he plays out this undying fantasy of living the vampire life.
