Who Am I?

Who am I?

Why I am different?

Specially unique

Never under estimated

Always expected perfection from me

But can’t they see it is showing

Through the cracks of my soul

That I am not perfect,

That I can only handle so much

That I am just a human

With only so much strength

Left inside for

I am only me

The one every treats different

Like I am some type of miraculous event

That happened so many years ago

Look at me, can’t you see, the pressure is building

Upon my shoulders to strive my best

At all your wants & needs

I am about to crack, go colliding, spinning out of control

Please somebody release my soul

Just tell me why you treat me so

I wonder is it because I am not of part of you?

Why I am so different, my hair color is off, my eyes are not the same,

Does anyone know who I am?

Does anyone even care?

Why can’t you just tell me?

Honesty is the core to life’s injustice

But there you are treating me

Like I am some angel in disguise

As if I was not made from you.

Cover Reveal…It’s Now My Time: Coffee, Poetry & The Past

It's Now My Time_ 1 (2)(1)

Throughout this book, you will meet with me on several occasion for coffee while I tell you about the events that shaped my life and how they affected me. I hope I did justice to my family.
I don’t remember every detail of my past and wish people wouldn’t ask. I blocked out a lot and what is mentioned here is what I remember how things were. I know that I am the last girl out of the original family I was born into, that everyone has left me here to face life by myself.
I don’t know all the facts about my dad’s suicide or why my brother shot and killed his best friend. I don’t know all the details that surround my mom’s car accident or the car accident that my sister died from or what started this chain reaction. I don’t even have all the answers to why my daughter had to pass away in the middle of the night. But I do know that each of these events changed my life forever and created me to be the person I am today. I don’t know understand why my family was chosen or why we were put through this hell.

Author Ellie’s Bio:

I’m Ellie Douglas, and like you, I love horror, everything about horror, the goriest and most gruesome of horrors is the ultimate. I can’t get enough. So much so that I write horror. That need to be graphic, and explicit with my horror scenes makes me stand out. I give what I want to read to others, so now they can enjoy a true horror story.

I’m not all about just being graphic, I also build characters that the readers will love and or hate, so they can feel pulled right inside of the story that they are reading. It gives me so much enjoyment when I hear remarks like, ‘You made me want to puke,’ ‘I have nightmares every damned night –thanks,’ and ‘Quentin Tarantino and Steven King made a baby, YOU!’ when I hear comments like that, I know then I’ve succeeded, that also pushes me into writing more and becoming even better.

I’m fun loving, generous and very mysterious. I enjoy spending time with my family, and have four children to keep the horror writing alive. I enjoy helping others and volunteer my services to help Autistic children, I love cosplay and the chance to dress up as a monster, zombie or some other gritty character is fun, oh so much fun.

I love summer, and well…I hate winter. I live in New Zealand and feel often too far away from all the cool stuff going on in the world. I love helping people all the time. I’ve got my hands dipped in a few things, I write books, but I also make professional book covers for other authors, I also create adult coloring books and I have a gambling app that I designed on the apple store 🙂 I’ve always got a project going, be it writing or creating, that is who I am and I love it 🙂

My ultimate aim is to give back, paying it forward, to constantly better myself and give the audience amazing stories. Let me scare you…

Bellamy Foster leads his group of survivors on a perilous journey. Not only must he find a sanctuary for them all, but he is also on a quest to find his twin brother, Calloway.

Currently being stalked by raging, hungry, vicious zombie dogs, they become aware of a new, more sinister, threat. The infected SB-16 coma patients are now becoming vile, ravenous, and monstrous human zombies.

Will the survivors find a new sanctuary in time to save themselves and what remains of the shattered world around them?

Hounded 2 is an explicit horror – full of spattered slaughter, love and loss, fast-moving action, and a maze of unexpected destruction, that is sure to keep you turning pages late into the night. In this, her second novel, Ellie Douglas proves there’s plenty of rot to ooze out of the zombie genre.

My Review on Toxic Desire:

on May 22, 2017
Format: Kindle Edition
This book was packed full of excitement and steamy scenes and murderous plots. Throughout the story is every type of chaotic events a reader would want, The pace of the story is in full force. Ellie’s writing is so engrossed with talent on creating each chapter of charters that just continued to build till the end. Ellie’s imagination had to be captured onto paper for all of us to enjoy her characters of Toxic Desire, the overall feeling of the book is a turbulent ride of flashbacks with the urge to get even.
The cover of Ellie’s book is what drew me to choose this book to read. Her color scheme was eye catching and the image of the city with a lurking view of a girl intrigued my thoughts of wanting to read her book. The title definitely fits the book with toxic desire of wanting to get even and rage of hate.
I give big kudos to Ellie for her writing is so easily paced and so chair griping. I would highly recommend anyone who is looking for a hot steamy murderous read to grab her book and enjoy over a weekend read!

Q1. Tell us something interesting about yourself.

I am a new work-in-progress writer who is figuring this out as I go. I wrote two chapters and emailed them to a couple of friends and they raved about them so I plucked up the courage to share them publicly. That’s how In The Coming Time on Facebook came to be. As I wrote and released more chapters, I wanted to grow my audience and so Twitter was the next step. I met so many authors that had advice and experience to share. It was amazing. Someone pitched the idea that I needed a site to properly share my work. They were quite correct and now I run my blog as well! It’s been such a positive experience to grow and share.

 

Q2. What does “being creative” mean to you?

To me, being creative means taking the step of turning your thoughts into a tangible thing you can share with the world.

 

Q3. What are your greatest sources of inspiration?

I love all science fiction, but by far, I have been a lover of Star Trek and Gene Roddenberry’s vision of what humans can become since I was very young. It’s rare when you find a philosophy that believes we can be more than we are and aren’t doomed to die out as a selfish failure of a species.

 

Q4. Do you have any current or future projects?

I am constantly working on In The Coming Time. There are seven completed chapters up on my site and an eighth in the works. I am also, always in search of authors who would like to do interviews for my site as I do my part to support the writers community. I do have a short story series I am starting but it’s too soon to share.

Q5. What is the relationship between your speaking voice and your written voice?

They argue quite a bit, in person I have the awful habit of being a potty mouth sometimes and I don’t want my work littered with it.

Q6. What is the best advice you have for other authors?

As a newbie myself, all I can say is that every single person I have ever asked that exact question to answered: READ. Read a lot, read across genres, read fiction and non, and then read some more.

 

Q7. Why did you start blogging?

I started blogging as a way of having my work organized, a central place for people to find my chapters. It evolved through my attempts to get more traffic to my site and to give back to the friends I’ve made in the community. It’s been a fantastic journey and I’m grateful to everyone who’s been willing to share their work with me or leave a comment on my chapters. And, as an added bonus, I’ve received a bunch of positive feedback on my personal experience posts.

 

Q8. Do you have any blogging tips?

The best thing I did was to check out other bloggers. There’s literally a blog out there for EVERYTHING, including how to blog. I don’t claim to be an expert but a good amount of research will go a long way.

 

Q9. Who is your favorite author? And why?

There are so many… If I had to pick a single writer it would be Michael Crichton. I became a lover of sci-fi as a kid watching classic black and white movies and Star Trek reruns with my Dad and I remember watching Andromeda Strain. It scared me, but it fascinated me as well. As soon as I was at an old enough reading level I was given Jurassic Park and that was it. I had to read them all. I don’t know if I can perfectly explain it, something just clicked. Today it’s about the memories of sharing a love of his books and movies with my Dad.

Book Review: Timothious Smith Incomplete Poems

51PT-g6oDLL._SY200_

Welcome Timothious Smith!

He was born in North Kansas City, Missouri on 28th day of a cold October morning in 1961 at 10:35 a.m. to a TWA agent and his housewife.
He spent the first 18 months of life growing up in North Kansas City, Missouri in a small house next to the railroad tracks. He has fond memories of the trains that went by the house that rocked him to sleep as they traveled by as well as the yellow curtains that hung over the window by his crib.
At this time his family moved to a small college town north of Kansas City, Missouri called Parkville. That same year his brother was born and changed his life forever as he became the big brother. Two years later on Christmas morning another brother would be born. In growing up Timothious and his brothers were often read to by their mother. Their mother tried to read the normal children’s books of the time but they craved for more. Often they were happy when being read to from whatever their mother was reading at the time. This meant that bedtime stories where normally something from Edgar Allen Poe or the like.
When he turned four his parents had enrolled him into pre-school where he met two important childhood friends who would influence his life until Junior high school. During these years he would spend the majority of his time trying to fit in with the crowd. Being shy and reserved he would be overshadowed by his younger brother in the social clique of school as his younger brother was out-going and loud.
Though he was only an average athlete in most sports he found that he had a knack in middle distance running. In the 9th grade after running a heat for the 100 yard dash and finishing 4th knowing that he would not run varsity that year he elected to run the 800 yard dash. Falling in love with longer distances, his first run longer than a mile was the Pepsi 10,000 meter in 1977 in which was also Jim Ryun’s first race since his injury in the Olympics.
Timothious continued to run for many years after that including several marathons which his fastest was 2 hour 27 minutes and 13 seconds. It was after that marathon that he injured his knee in a wrestling accident. He wasn’t to compete in any races after that though he continued to run.
He grew up having a normal life in a small Midwestern College town called Parkville. If you can call having a steady diet of Edgar Allen Poe, Robert A. Heinlein, Walt Disney, J.R.R. Tolkien, Edgar Rice Burroughs, Isaac Asimov and all the X-Minus One and Green Hornet radio shows he could find normal.
Besides writing sci-fi he also writes mysteries, suspense, poems and screenplays.

Blurb:
When you find an old notebook you never know what you will find some times. I was going through what I thought was a notebook with my first book of poems in it. Instead I found a few poems that I had left out for one reason or another. Which leads to this book and it’s title. This is a group of poems that I wrote over several years about several different subjects. Mostly about relationships and love. I hope you enjoy these poems.
My Review:
I have read other books by Timothious but I can say this is my favorite. It rings a bell with life, love, and nature mingling together to form beautifully penned poems. Three of my favorite themes. I like his rhyming scheme and the flow his poems are as gentle as a mountain spring. The rhythm beats like a lyric more than a poem.
My favorites were “Elf Princess” with lines such as “Elf Princess have you put a spell on me? My heart swells like the raging sea” or in the poem “When thou Touch I,” with the lines “In the near past I had lunged.” ‘Opening a closed heart door.” Timothious writing of love so wanted and pure but so sad and heartbreaking at the same time.
I recommend this book to any poetry lover or to anyone who wants to dip there hands into poetry will find a good book poems and also learn from the poet too.

My Review with my 11 year old Autistic son, Hayden:

As a parent’s view it is always fun to read a book with your child. And, this book of Susan’s was no different. I enjoyed reading this book with Hayden just as much as he enjoyed listening to it. We talked throughout the story for he always asks many questions when a book is being read. We laughed as well at several different parts of the story.

Prince Alfonso was a cute little tortoise that woke up one morning and found no breakfast in his bowl. He adventured throughout the garden in seek of something yummy. He met new friends who offered their help in trying to fill his tummy.

My son especially liked Alfonso and Jeremy.

As a parent, I highly recommend this book as a joyful time to bond with your child by reading a cute funny tale about Alfonso the Tortoise.
