Star Wars, The Clone Wars, Rebels and Re-watching Mandalorian

Image
Getting cutie-pie overload from re-watching The Mandalorian. Finished the entire Clone Wars series and also started on Rebels. Blame that for my lack of blogging, emails, twittering, Facebook, and general socializing. Also means I have been a little slack with promos on my latest books, but I am delighted to thank Amazon for putting my International Reviews up on the Amazon.com site. When you have 5 star reviews, you want people to see them. If you get a spare moment between re-watching Star Wars or Clone Wars or Rebels or Mandalorian, whatever, check out my books on Amazon and if you like them, I would be very grateful if you could leave a review. Thank you! Here is the link:     My Books on Amazon        BARGAINS! GREAT BOOKS! GREAT SERIES! They are at bargain prices! You can buy one book at a time, or all four in the series in one bargain download.

Star Trek Discovery, Star Trek Next Generation and the F Word

Image
I'm not stupid, I know nearly every show out there uses the F word but I was kind of turned off when two characters on Star Trek Discovery used the F word. In Star Trek? I laughed and laughed.  It is supposed to be futuristic. Do they really think we will still be using the F word in hundreds of years time. I seriously doubt it. It is a bit like one of the characters turning dramatically to another and saying, "Oh by God's bones, we have a plasma coolant leak!"  In the middle ages, "by God's bone" was vulgar, but it sounds so stupid now. I'm guessing in a few hundred years the F word will sound stupid and old-fashioned too. Hey I may be wrong, after all fart has endured for hundreds and hundreds of years and shit has been around for a while. It just sounded so wrong and weird and un-trekkish. But maybe the fractious crew members needed to swear a little to hold the audience. They certainly didn't need to do that for Star Trek Next Generation. It

Watched the entire Clone Wars, Mandalorian and starting on Rebels.

My son left home today to study Architecture at Uni in Brisbane. I miss him already. Before he left we watched The Mandalorian and the entire series of The Clone Wars. Then last night we started watching Star Wars Rebels. Now I'm torn between binge-watching the rest of the series or waiting for when he might come home in holidays or for the occasional weekend.  We have such similar taste in books/tv/movies. He is my guinea-pig when I write a new book. He loves my upcoming series for middle grade kids and was the first person to read it when I completed the first draft. Even though he is now a young adult, he still loves the series and re-reads it occasionally, even as I edit and make changes ready for release. Now I need to find a publisher. Better still, I need to find the child of a publisher. I wish that the people receiving submissions for middle-grade books would just hand them to their kids and say, "Read this and let me know what you think.".  

JK Rowling - The Philosopher's Stone - Harry Potter

Image
The Harry Potter series by JK Rowling is so much fun to read. It does not matter if you are a kid or an adult, it just makes you want to keep reading - and for all the right reasons. An exciting, dangerous adventure, but good triumphs over evil in the end. I am looking forward to publishing my new series for middle grade. The Ruby Key series is coming soon with Book 1 - The Shadow Village, Book 2 - The Foreigner's Revenge and Book 3 - Lost in Biorallis.

Stephen King. 11/22/63 Review

Image
Would you recommend this book? Definitely. It is a great read. What did you like best about this book? Knowing one thing was going to happen, desperately wanting another result. What did you like least about this book? The inevitability of the conclusion of the struggle. (Love/hate relationship here.) If you were making a movie of this book, who would you cast? Will Smith. He has such a strong acting ability to portray the emotional roller-coaster the main character experiences. What other books by this author have you read? How did they compare to this book? I have read quite a few of Stephen King books. Whilst he works primarily in a fantasy genre, they are all so different. How can I compare 11/22/63 to IT, to The Dark Tower, to Mr Mercedes, to any of his novels? Which character in the book would you most like to meet? The yellow card man. What do you think of the book’s title? 11/22/63. Brilliant. Most older people will know what happened on that day. Most y
