Blog tour - Cheryl Elaine's Stitched.

I'm thrilled to be part of the blog tour for Cheryl Elaine's fabulous new thriller, STITCHED. I'm a huge admirer of Cheryl's work, her NO ORDINARY GIRL, shot to the top of my list of all-time reads last year. She definitely has a vivid imagination.




Here's my review of Stitched. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

M.A. Comley Hi Julie, I've jsut instructed publishers to publish Impeding Justice and it should be out around Christmas time!!

I don't know if you know this but you don't need a kindle, you can download any kindle book to your PC, might not be too good for your eyes though!! lol

Keep in touch.
Melxx


message 7: by Julie

Julie Will they release your work in book version? I wish they will and hoping that it will hit the bookstores in the Philippines. Oh! if only i can have my kindle right now lol!
yes! i understand dan brown's books are really time-and effort-consuming, I can imagine the rigorous researches and studies they conducted during the making of the book ^^. you're so cool Mel! might as well try James Patterson's books!

Thanks for all the infos. Bless you too ^^


message 6: by M.A.

M.A. Comley Bless you, Julie for your kind words. My inspiration comes from James Patterson and now Karen Rose, I'm a thriller girl by heart.

I have read and thoroughly enjoyed Dan Brown's books, especially Angel and Demons and of course the Da Vinci Code. I tend not to read or write for that matter books with a lot of descriptions, life's too short! lol

Good luck with your writing, if you are just starting out there are a few author sites where you can upload your work and get feedback from other writers. They're Authonomy (where my novel was voted the 2nd best crime novel of all time) and youwriteon.com. Make sure you mention that you're looking for genuine feedback, but never give up on your writing. Impeding Justice started out a terrible novel but hard work and committment have turned it in to what it is today. I sold over 100 copies in the first 2 weeks of releasing it on Kindle.

So have a go and have faith.

Melxx


message 5: by Julie

Julie Sorry Mel for the delayed response. Wow, I am amazed, I wish I can write like you. Reading your work is truly a pleasure :)

I enjoyed the first chapter! ^^ It's great! well, I am not a well-rounded person when it comes to books. I mostly read YA stuffs so, I am expanding my preference now to reading more actions and reality-based adventures just like what you’ve written. The only novels that deviate from my usual preferences are those written by Dan Brown and now I am including Impeding Justice to my short list of action novels ^^, now I’m thinking of reading more just like this one. Wishing you good luck for the other installments ^^

And by the way, I am so delighted and inspired to do my stuff now more than ever. Thank you Mel.

M.A. Comley Hi, I'm in Normandy the North of France and it's a beautiful day here but very cold about 6 degrees, we've just started our winter. I'm just about to walk my two dogs, need to wrap up today.

I've never been to the Philippines it looks very beautiful though.

you should try to write, you're obvioulsy interested otherwise you wouldn't have joined the group.

I've only been writing for 8-9 years but I'm really proud of my achievments so far.

This is the first chapter of my book.

Speak soon, time to venture out now.
