STRAIGHT FROM THE HEART…

I truly enjoyed this collection of poems from Marta Moran Bishop. The deep emotions, observations, and insights come straight from her heart onto the page. “Life’s Miracles,” one of my favorites, talks about how busy society is, so focused on the television that we forget to focus on life. The poet’s style is short and simple, but abounding in truth.
The poems she wrote for her mother and sister, “A Tribute To My Mother,” and “I’m Not Ready To Lose My Sister,” are poignant, heart-wrenching, beautiful, and immensely relatable. In other poems, her sharp words for those who have hurt her pack a wallop. These poems make the reader think about her/his own life and those who have strayed, betrayed, or merely played with one’s emotions. What I love about Marta Moran Bishop’s work is that while vulnerable, she always shows her ability to rebound, to gather strength, and to help others by sharing her truths.
With an appreciative and loving eye for the outdoors, she has a keen and special way of embracing the nuances of nature.
The author’s first book, Wee Three: A Child’s World, remains one of my favorite books of children’s verse.

What a Long, Strange Ride It’s Been

By Backstage Blogs

The final book of a seven-book series, and what a long, strange ride it has been. I really had no idea what I was getting into when I picked up the first book in the series in January, but this has been a very intense, interesting, twisting and turning, jaw-dropping journey from book one through the last page of book seven.

The title is Avenged, it is the end of the series – you simply know that s&%t is going to get real for this final installment, and it certainly does. Tori and her ragtag group are going to settle things once and for all, and it is quite an all-out melee.

The FBI – we finally get to see exactly who is playing on what team, and under whose direction. This has been the most compelling underlying storyline for me probably from book one. Seeing how this one falls into line is what I have been waiting for.

Tori’s Men – who is going to make it out alive becomes the most important question, at the crux of things more than who means the most to her. Everyone knows the risks..will it be worth it in the end?

The **bleeping** Organization – finally have all of the missing pieces come together on this mysterious bunch? Can Tori possibly take on something this big?

Tori’s big surprise – I had figured it out in the last book, but how long is it going to take her to see, and what will it mean for this story? How much will this interfere with what she needs to get done?

As always, well crafted, action-packed, well written and edited, it is all perhaps most important in this final book that it all comes together, flows, and brings closure. Ms. Jacobey gets excellent marks on all of the above.

Again, for mature audiences only. For explicit violence and sexual situations. I did receive a complimentary copy of this book for review.

“I love the way Bishop’s imagination can weave such odd, and entertaining stories.” – Hidden Realms by Marta Moran Bishop

Marta hidden realms.jpg

Line Blurb
Three short stories of the paranormal and the unknown, to delight, chill, and make you wonder.
This book contains The Hollowers, The Other Side, and The Night of the Fairies, published under single stories and now together.
The Hollowers is a strange tale of Jerry’s discovery of an old box. Jerry is a man who has chosen to do as little as possible to get by. He lives in a pretend world where the main character is himself until he finds the mysterious box.
The Other Side is the story of Ed and Isle. Ed is a successful businessman until one day under the most unusual circumstances he discovers a new world. A world that holds the woman of his dreams, but can he live there, or will his learned behavior keep them apart?
The Night of the Fairies takes us into the realm of a young girl, who was adopted into the tribe, but never fit in. She sees fairies, which no one else can see and has a horror of becoming the wife of one of the tribe, she is changing you see, but into what?

Fabulous Stories!

I love the way Bishop’s imagination can weave such odd, and entertaining stories.
The Night of the Fairies shows us if we wait we will become whom we want to be.
The Other Side was just as fascinating! A man finally finds the woman of his dreams, but is he willing to make the sacrifice of a successful life?
The Hollowers was a bit more disturbing but fantastic. A lazy man, living in an imaginary world, finds a box that gives him the ultimate reward if you want to call it that.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who would like to see outcomes in different situations.

“This story is told with great detail, making the reader apart of the story.” The Void by Marta Moran Bishop

Marta the void

Line Blurb
The Void, the first true paranormal short story written by Marta Moran Bishop, is reminiscent of Alfred Hitchcock or the Twilight Zone of later days.
It will take you deep into the mind and heart of someone either living through a serious mental illness or something mysterious and dangerous resides in the void.
Many years before, Altori and her sister Helen moved into the village. Last year during the night of no moon Helen went out into the void and nearly died. A terrible disease spread through her body. She ran away to escape the possibility of death at the hands of the frightened villagers.
Will Altori survive the void and find her sister? Did Helen ever exist or is Altori suffering from a mental illness?

This is a fantastic read.

I must admit, I don’t read that much due to my work life and all the writing that I do, but when I do it’s great to read a short story that captures your imagination.
This story is told with great detail, making the reader apart of the story. Now that’s what I call a fantastic author. Any author who can get into the mind of a reader, making you turn the pages, I class that as pure talent. I do look forward reading more of Marta’s work. I would like to wish Marta the very best, but I know deep down we will be seeing a lot more of this author  ❤

“Kudos to the author once again on capturing my imagination.” – Eyes Beyond The Wall by Gary D. Henry

17 gary 1

Meet the Calvert’s, a family both blessed and cursed since the 1600s. Their first-born’s have always been males who excel at whatever business endeavor they take on—but die young, in strange circumstances, soon after they reach the pinnacle of business success. The females born to the Calvert’s cannot bear children and die young because of ill health. The latest couple in this long line of brilliant and tragic family members is Perry and Jessica Calvert. They, as generations of Calvert’s, attempted to break the evil curse. They just might… Meet Max and Terri Porter, Perry’s best friend, and younger sister. Frightened for business success himself due to his family’s curse, he planned on using his formative skills to make Max’s business dreams and plans succeed, while he comfortably stayed a silent partner.
The Porters were also godparents—the second parents—to Perry’s daughter, Connie. Because Perry’s firstborn was a daughter, he thought that it broke the long-standing family curse. However, he created another, more cruel curse, for his daughter to endure. Max buys a castle in upstate New York, where both families shared memories and lives. But this castle, built by Alonzo Antonelli in the mid-eighteen hundreds, holds dark mysteries and hidden rooms and fables of hidden treasures that lied within. Subsequent generations of sons of the Antonelli family disappeared mysteriously within the walls of the manor attempting to find the treasure. What’s behind the walls of this house that caused such pain to three families?
Accompany Connie, Perry’s daughter, as she goes on a search—a quest—to stop the curse, and to unravel the mysterious Antonelli disappearances. She accused fate for her many tragedies in life and gallantly fought it to change her lot in life and by doing so destroying the curse. She set out to rescue the castle from that unseen and unknown entity –fate.

Curse you.

Eyes Beyond the Wall is a different kind of book in which it starts out as historical in explaining a family line and the wealth they incur. A curse will plague the family. That part I will let you read about and not spoil it for you. Everything seems to run wonderfully until Constance comes along. A roller-coaster of emotions are evoked in this drama/thriller. Sometimes I had to wonder where the author got his material. But then I figured his muse hit him at different times and made the book a success. A lengthy read with well-developed characters. I recommend this book for a rainy weekend read. Kudos to the author once again on capturing my imagination.

Light the fire, grab the cocoa, and get ready for a great read!

Stranded on Vail Mountain is a well-written, gripping, fast-paced novella. I love short reads, especially those which grab the reader by the seat of the pants from the first line to the last – this one delivers! I’ve read this story twice and will read it again. This was my first read of this author’s works. I look forward to reading much more from her. I don’t write reviews often, but some stories are too good not to share.
