Hey everyone,

I have a Facebook group! It’s been a while but I never really put much work into it before. However, I believe that it’s time that I do… put work into it. Like here!

  • Ask me questions about my books
  • talk to me about your favorite books without promoting them since the group is not for promoting other authors
  • Looking for a writing tip?
  • Want to say hi?
  • talk about the weather?

See you there!

Book Review: ABC Book for toddlers

Book Title:  ABC Book for toddlers abc

Since, I’m a new mother, I jump when I see books for babies, toddlers, and kids. I wanted to read this book before reading to my kid to get an idea of my reaction beforehand.

Each letter has a page with 5 words and illustrations. There were a couple of words that I didn’t think were right for toddlers- such as, ink-pot and oven (the picture if of a microwave so it threw me off), and urn. Each illustration was bright and happy and could possibly hold his attention. I love the layout, it’s simple and to the point.

When it came to numbers, I liked number 9. 😉

Conclusion: A good learning tool and will be reading it to my son when he would be more interested in things. ^_^

Before I get to the review…. Can the author email me book 3? Yes, dear readers, the series is still gripping! ^_^

To remind you, this book is about different groups of individuals – the Paragons, the Luminary, shape shifters, immortals, and humans. The first book was predominately written from Wicus’s point of view, this book (second in the series) is predominately written from Waxine’s. It was interesting getting inside her head. The author is consistent with the characters and the point of views from the humans are fantastic!

We don’t know anything more about the evil plot, though we do know more on the vampires… and that Wicus’s favorite mortal has more soul mates than originally needed.

Confession 1: I hate love triangles. There’s something about them that makes me cringe and put down a book. I like how love blossoms between the two main characters and all of the twists that authors come up to tell the same story. But, when a third person is there, it breaks the balance so in a way, I totally agree with Ozel- how would Emily choose???

Confession 2: The love triangle didn’t make me cringe! And that’s a first. I think it’s maybe the story line itself or that the book is written predominately from a third party who is not in the relationship. The third party is there to watch and do its job as watching out for soulmates to meet each other and I think that’s real hook right there.

The book has a good ending and a preview into book 3. I would recommend it to older teens of 16 and older.

Helping out one of my editors with his stories and returning to work on my phoenix book.

7. What is the best joke you’ve ever heard?

Sadly, I don’t remember any jokes but I like comedy skits from Dizel Show (Ukranian show). They are really funny! There’s one skit about how a son calls his mother and asks her for help sending him a file from his computer. His mother doesn’t know how to use a computer and takes things literally. The grandma though has Instagram! Love it!

8. What is your favourite weather (i.e. snowing, stormy, sunny, blisteringly hot)?

Snowing because I miss it. Stormy because it reminds of my phoenix story and it was an influence for a chapter or two.

Don’t have one. 

10. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be and what would that look like? I.e A cabin surrounded by a forest, near a river and the cabin will have an attic and window seat.

I would like to live in a cabin somewhere near an ocean or lake (but with easy access to stores so I could get food). In California, there’s a nice campgrounds- Asilomar- and there are nice housing close by. A good dream. 

11. If you could have a little creature that followed you around, and was invisible to most other people, but it had no powers, what would it look like?

A mix between a dragon and a cat!
