Book Blast: Muddy Minutes by Rima Jbara - Win a $25 Gift Card






Title: Muddy Minutes
Author: Rima Jbara
Publisher: AuthorHouse
Genre: Mind, Body, Spirit
Format: Ebook


“Sand rasped incidents in my life, causing an abrasive outcome. Down came the rain, smothering me with mud and splattering me with my tears, creating a pool of sorrow that I swam in. An intervening energy took over me. I felt weightless as it pushed me through murky incidents. As sand and rain danced as one, it tormented me, leaving smearing mud on my days. Devastation overcame me with a magnitude that quivered my being. As I soaked in this salt water, my life remained damp for some time.” ‘Muddy Minutes’ accentuates a phase in the life of actress Turquoise Colmenares which depended on one decision that would change her present and maybe her future, considering that it is impossible to satisfy everyone. Brave acts and scenes of perseverance gained her incessant admiration, and unveiled a subject that many actors dreaded about. She walked through her blown away dreams and tossed hopes with grace. She dared to live through all the muddled moments. Rima Jbara’s message in this novel is to help you experience the joy of being alive, and the completeness that gratitude can bring with fortitude, conviction and integrity.

Rima Jbara spent most of her childhood writing short stories overflowing with fantasy, and by the time she was 14, her first novel was released. Through her writing, she has given her readers a rare glimpse into her obscure world. The author released her evocative novel ‘Hope’ after five years of hiatus and obsession, and says, “I took time to experiment.” It contained gloomy and bitter self-conscious thoughts and dialogues that cemented Rima as a writer that has gone very deep to discover the inner most emotions in women and the ability to penetrate their souls. She wrote her bleak novels-on paper in shadowy rooms which only emphasizes the extreme infatuation of her art. An unconventional author, without an end declares her own death will comply while writing. Deeply troubled characters were created by Rima, and the complexity in these characters arises from her. The author’s life was tailor-made for her writing and sustains its passion in the pages; but she is best, when writing about herself. Visit the author online at www.rima-jbara.com

Book Review: My Brain is Out of Control by Dr. Patrick Mbaya



ABOUT THE BOOK:

Formats: Ebook
Pages: 76
Genre: Biography/Autobiography
Tour Dates: October 23-December 15

Although Dr. Patrick Mbaya’s illness caused a lot distress and nearly took his life, the emotional symptoms of the depression he developed helped him understand and empathize with patients and how they feel when they become ill. In My Brain is Out of Control, Mbaya, fifty-five and at the peak of his career, shares a personal story of how he suffered from a brain infection in 2010 that caused loss of speech, right-sided weakness, and subsequent depression. He tells how he also dealt with the antibiotics complications of low white cell count and hepatitis. He narrates his experiences as a patient, the neurological and psychiatric complications he encountered, how he coped, and his journey to recovery. Presenting a personal perspective of Mbaya’s illness from the other side of the bed, My Brain is Out of Control, offers profound insight into battling a serious illness.



MY REVIEW:
Even though the title of this book is My Brain is Out of Control, after getting to the end you will realize that this couldn't be further from the truth. Dr. Mbaya has been through so much, and remarkably been able to overcome all of it and become a better person. It was hard reading what he had to go through and how he had no control over any of it. But in the end he came out on top and was able to see things from a new point of view. A must read. 


ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Dr. Patrick Mbaya is a medical doctor specializing in psychiatry. He is a consultant psychiatrist and honorary clinical lecturer in psychiatry at the University of Manchester, United Kingdom. He has a special interest in mood and addiction disorders.

Character Interview with Julia Carson of Charlene Whitman's Wyoming Tryst






Our guest character today is Julia Carson from Charlene Whitman's WYOMING TRYST. Enjoy the interview!
 

What is your name?

Julia Carson

What do you look like?

I’m young—sixteen—and I have pale skin, light hair, and freckles (which I’m not fond of). I’m also tall for a girl and that makes me self-conscious.

You come face to face with your worse enemy. How do you react?

I do come face-to-face with my worst enemy. He’s the sheriff of Laramie, and he throws me in the state penitentiary because he hates my father, Lester Carson, a rich cattle rancher. He wants me dead and almost succeeds in killing me. But my love, Robert, and the good doctor, Tuttle, make a way—a dangerous way—to get me out of the prison.

Do you have any phobias? What are they and how intense are they? How have they impacted your life?

I don’t have phobias but I have severe asthma, which almost kills me a couple of times. But I can’t complain. It’s because of my asthma that I fell in love with Robert.

What scares you?

Thinking Robert has abandoned me.

How would your parents describe you?

Na├»ve and too young to know what’s best for me.

Are you faith-oriented? 

Yes, if I didn’t have my faith in God, I would never get through this harrowing ordeal.

About the Book:

Title: WYOMING TRYST
Author: Charlene Whitman
Publisher: Ubiquitous Press
Pages: 360
Genre: Sweet Historical Western Romance

BOOK BLURB:
Two ranching tycoons. A decades-old feud. A sheriff bent on ridding the town of lawlessness . . .
In the midst of the trouble brewing in Laramie City in 1878, Julia Carson yearns to be free of her parents’ smothering and wonders whether she’ll ever find a man worthy to love in such a violent town rife with outlaws.
But when Robert Morrison sneaks onto her ranch the night of her sixteenth birthday party, Cupid shoots his arrows straight and true. Aware that their courtship would be anathema to their fathers, who are sworn enemies, Robert and Julia arrange a tryst.
Yet, their clandestine dalliance does not go unnoticed, and forces seek to destroy what little hope their romance has to bloom. The star-crossed lovers face heartache and danger as violence erupts. When all hope is lost, Joseph Tuttle, the new doctor at the penitentiary, is given a letter and a glass vial from Cheyenne medicine woman Sarah Banks.
The way of escape poses deadly dangers, but it is the only way for Robert and Julia to be together. It will take the greatest measure of faith and courage to come through unscathed, but love always conquers fear.
