Friday Story: Guru’s Grace

This week I’m continuing with the Indian theme! This short story has appeared in a collection, but has never been sold on its own. I wrote this while visiting an ashram in southern India. I think you’re really going to enjoy it!   Guru’s Grace by Ruth Madison Copyright 2011 by Ruth Madison   Sumitra knew what her parents were going to ask the guru.  She was turning twenty-nine in two month’s time and they were beyond desperate to get her married.  She went along to try to be a good daughter, but in her heart she knew she could never be happy with the men her parents found and finding one on her own was close to impossible.  There was one very specific thing she needed in a man and she could never tell anyone about it. She sat...

Interview: A.N. Drea (Spiral Razor)

I am so honored to have Ms. Drea here today to tell us a little more about her novel, Shot in the Dark: A Killian McBride Novel (Volume 1). My trusted friend and vigilante reviewer extraordinaire, DevoGirl recommended this book to me and I’m glad that she did. I enjoyed it very much. (See the review from a few weeks ago). So, here is the author to assuage our curiosity…  1) Where did the idea for this story come from? The idea for this story was a long process. Killian himself started out as a character in a fan fiction. He was the result of watching too much Zatoichi and Highlander:The Series, concurrently. I tried him out in various incarnations until I found one that I liked. Jesse sort of evolved on his own, and the story went from...

Monday Book Review: The Squeaky Wheel

The Squeaky Wheel- An Unauthorized Autobiography Review… Summary: This one is a memoir, so it’s a little bit different from the romances I often review. It’s the story of how a young man goes in for an easy surgery and comes out a quadriplegic. The Good: I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this book. New injury stories are  not my favorite and I was worried that it would be very bitter and angry. It wasn’t. It wasn’t exactly chipper either, but I felt like it really captured this young man’s experience perfectly (not easy to do, even when you’re telling your own story!). It’s easy (for me, anyway) to forget that a disabled person often started out able-bodied and doesn’t know what to make of a sudden change...

Blue Moon – Is it ever too late for love?

Blue Moon – Is it ever too late for love?

I wrote the short story Blue Moon from prompts given by the Romantic Friday Writers. I continued the story over three (or was it even more?) of the themes given out each week. I based it closely on my feelings for my first love and how I’ve dreamed that he would come back to me someday. This week I got a one star review of it! That hurt a lot. But hey, I’m a professional, I can take it. I’m curious, though. What do you think? Do you agree? Read the story and let me know what you think (even better, post a review on Amazon, whether you like it, hate it, love it, don’t care!) Get it free on Kindle here, or keep reading… Blue Moon by Ruth Madison Copyright 2012 by Ruth Madison *** “You’ll never guess who’s back in town.” Cindy...
