For me, the point of Transcendence was Ehd's experiences without the ability for what we consider "normal" communication methods. Most of Beh's experience can be inferred through Ehd's eyes. The reader might not know the specifics, but the emotional reactions are clear to Ehd. I think writing it all from Beh's POV would actually end up detracting from the Transcendence experience. :) (less)

There were a variety of things int he box: a solar powered ereader with a lot of books of local edible plants, vitamins and vaccinations, and yes, something to make her sterile when she decided she'd had enough babies. The box was completely biodegradable, so it wouldn't have survived the test of time. :) (less)

Birthright by Shay Savage
"There are lots of twists and turns in this well written, small town mafia romance with the H/h both aged 25. It has a slow burn romance with some steamy scenes, lots of angst, drama and a couple of uncomfortable murder scenes. It's nowhere near as vi" Read more of this review »

Shay Savage answered Shaun Stone's question: Shay Savage
Honestly, I avoided most of the problems by limiting the viewpoint to primarily just the two main characters in a very small area. I did do a lot of research on prehistory Pecs, Hungary area, mostly for edible flora and fauna of the time. I didn't ha See Full Answer

“I wonder what I will do if she doesn't wake up, and I don't have an answer. As I lie back down next to her and pull her into my arms, my stomach growls, and suddenly I know exactly what I will do. If she doesn't wake up, then I will just lie with her until I don't wake up either.”

Mo Is that the FINAL cover for the Bastian book? Not at all how I imagined them. I actually hate it.

Renegade ♥ Hi Shay - thanks for the add! :)

I read "Otherwise Alone" yesterday and really enjoyed it. Your writing pulls me right in and doesn't let go until it's darn good and ready. *grin*

Looking forward to Evan's journey - it's going to be a wild one, I'm sure...
