I’m always learning and this time I learned how to post on a place called Wattpad. I posted a promo for my book, Am I Real, that includes the first chapter.

Go there and read the first chapter.
I recently edited Am I Real again. It is better than before and can be downloaded again if purchased before so that you have the best copy available at either Smashwords or Amazon (using the update ability from Amazon).
Yes, my editing was rough and the story was written for myself. It was only when someone told me I should publish it that I took that next leap. I didn’t have even a beta reader at this point. I have learned much since that time and promise my next book to be even better.
Am I Real was re-edited about six months ago. If you have it from Amazon please use the Update to make the story better.
A wonderful review of Am I Real on Goodreads. It is another five star. This makes me so excited that this person cared enough to write what they did about my first novelette. Click on the link below.
I am pleased to announce that my first book, Am I Real, got its first Five Star Review. It was an unbiased review from someone that liked science fiction. I was shocked she liked it that well. Read her review on Goodreads.
Five Star Review
As many of you know, my first book, Am I Real, was mentioned in the USA Today section called Happy Ever After.
In celebration of this, I’m offering a peek at one of the hot scenes. I know three lines isn’t much, but you need to book to really get the entire story of Horus and Faith and the question, Am I Real.
These line take place when she has just woke him while she explored his body. Her innocence is evident in the scene it is taken from in the story. (This is actually four sentences in the book.)
Faith looked at the organ, touched her finger to the tip where the slit was, pulling a drop of his fluid from it; watched the glass-like, sticky, slick strand extend from it before finally breaking. Softly blowing on his erection, she witnessed more fluid come from the tip. The sight of it was breathtaking and lovely.
I have no idea if Joyce Lamb will ever see this blog post of mine. If she does, I pray she realizes how much of a miracle the addition of my book to her article was for me. I didn’t even know about being included until Sunday night when others picked up on it. So, forgive me Joyce Lamb for not thanking you sooner.
Am I Real is the first book I have published. It is the first book I placed a piece of my soul into. I didn’t want a book of only sci-fi, erotica romance or a lesson . I wished to combine the three and create something special. I can only pray I did this with Am I Real.
I don’t count myself as a great writer. I count myself as someone with a story to tell and a unique voice in which to write it. I break rules that I know I shouldn’t in order to make script that flows and is nearly lyrical in form. I try to write romance without the purple prose of old but with a little of the stylings of the old masters. I wish to make the readers know and experience the emotions of the characters during their times together and sense the love between them. Whether I accomplish this or not is up the the reader.
It is a miracle for any first time author to be in the spotlight, let alone the spotlight of a woman such as Joyce Lamb with her qualifications and awards. Her article left me stunned to even think that my book was posted on Aug. 22, 2013 with the other great authors she reviews and posted about in USA Today’s Happy Ever After section.

I thank you, Joyce Lamb, for placing my book in with these great others you posted in the article. It is an honor and a humbling experience when someone does this for a first time author/publisher.
This makes me feel honored and humbled to me mentioned in this article for my first book, Am I Real.
