Poetry

gpagreatest poet book coverRevenge the Orgasm by: Greatest Poet Alive

As you are driving, your body involuntarily jumps. Sweat begins on your forehead and appears on your body, even though it is the middle of Winter. Inside of your left thigh, there is a tapping that is not harmful but noticeable. And you begin to wonder if sanity has departed or control of your motor skills is no longer your own. Then, the epiphany becomes clear. This is Revenge of the Orgasm.

Reviewing With Kindness

One of the things I really enjoy about Goodreads beside getting to know other readers and writers are the reviews.  I enjoy schrift-3.-redreading reviews and writing them. I just prefer to be honest but kind.  Reviewing with kindness. I don’t think having the ability to review another writer is an excuse to rip someone to shreds. I understand that you might find fault with another persons writing and I appreciate constructive criticism but tearing someone apart personally is beyond me. So you will not find that in my reviews, even the books I am not crazy about I am fair about. I just write that it is not my cup of tea but not that it is a waste of paper or some other charming statement. I have had that review on Amazon and I can tell you as a writer that hurts. I know that my writing is not perfect but to say that is just mean. To read my reviews please follow this link;   http://www.goodreads.com/review/list/4214079-sherri-rabinowitz?shelf=read

I also would like to address the general meanness on the net. This has nothing to do with me but just the general population. I cschrift 2_whiteBGan’t even read comments anymore. I will read an interview or a news story and people are just cruel not only about the article but to each other.  It happens on Facebook too, I have read a comment a famous person writes on Facebook and the followers will start to tear into each other. The person will ask that they stop doing that and sometimes they have to go so far as to remove the link, just because you’re sitting alone in your room writing on your computer does not give you the entitlement to be so wicked. I simply can’t understand it and won’t take part in it. I have had people try to do that with me but I will simply leave the discussion.  To quote a saying from the 80’s; Just Say No… To Cruelty.

jewel_3

We will have a new issue of Sherri’s Jewel Box very soon. It will be a new and exciting issue. With great interviews and beautiful pieces. So this is your last chance to see the beauty of this issue called; Love Is All Around! It is about love and the Myth of love.  For both history  lovers, Jewel Lovers, and the lovers of design this is the issue for you. Here is the link; http://sherrisjewelbox.weebly.com/

This week our author interview is with Wade Garret and his upcoming book; Genesis!

IMG_20121021_205528 (2)What was the first book you remember loving? Do you still own it?

The first book would have to be Mega Man 2 from the Worlds of Power Collection. Then Dracula, the cover just pulled me in. Sadly, I don’t own either and thinking about it now, I’m not sure why. I do own the first book I read in the first series I ever got hooked on, which is when I really got into reading: Redwall, by Brian Jacques. I’ve read and thumbed through the series so much so several of the books should be replaced with new ones. They won’t though. I love them.

What kind of books do you like to read? Do those books have an effect on your own writing?

I mainly read Science Fiction and Fantasy. More-often-then-naught, it’s the books blurring the lines between. I also read history—old textbooks and the bargains you find walking into most chain bookstores, also some gathered essays and philosophy. I mostly read for fun or to see what’s out in my medium, so I don’t dive into many really deep books anymore.  A People’s History of the United States by Howard Zinn was the last and because I do most of my reading at work during my lunch hour, well, it took me forever to finish it.

Yes. Everything affects my writing. As it should. Even if I’m reading something for fun, w/e it is, it’s also research. Like if there’s something I’ve been trying to write but can’t seem to keep on paper. Well, eventually I find w/e or get inspired by w/e and it helps me push through.

Do you remember what is the first book that touched you deeply?

The first books I remember reading were also the first to really touch me. However, those aside, it was Dune! Hands down. The scale. The dimensions and layers to the universe. The complexity of the characters. Not so much the politics though, I’m kinda already a political enthusiast. Then, as I got deeper into Dune, the core story is what set me on the path for my own book. Reading the series, I realized I wanted to tell my own version of a messianic character. His hero’s journey.

Is there an era of writing that affects you? 1920, 1800’s so forth?

As a writer, yes. The Now Era. I like blended books without fear. Comics are great for this. I also like things mixed up on purpose. I like different interpretations of history, scientific advancement, religion and so on. I’ve never been one to exclusively read, say, American Western, stories from the Renaissance or books revolving around the Dark Ages.

As a reader, no, well, for the most part no.
A specific era gives me no bonus joy, nor does it give the words greater lenience. Just make it enjoyable. It doesn’t need to be 100% for me to like it. However, as much as I like the Now Era because of the nearly limitless content. I’m not a fan of any straight-up modern stories. It’s odd. Example: I love the Jason Bourne movies. Love them! Wouldn’t read the books. Don’t care. Make it a movie and I’m there though. Now, if you put Bourne in some kinda Science Fiction/Fantasy world, yea, I’d read it all day. The twist as a reader for me isn’t setting or time, it’s beyond the normal.

Where do you like to write? Is there a favorite nook or corner?

I write in my Batcave, otherwise known as my office. The reason is I do a lot of walking—talking to myself—when I’m writing. I do push ups, pull-ups to clear my head. I curse at my computer if I’m pissed off. Maybe I bolt from the shower with an amazing idea that has to be punched into the keyboard. Could you see me doing some of these things in a coffee shop?

Do you prefer one genre to another?

Well, I prefer Fantasy and Science Fiction to everything else.

If we’re talking between those two…no. As I said, I like blended stories. I mean, is Dracula a Horror, a Fantasy or a Romance? Well, that’s all in how it’s written; but I like books to be all that and more. Now, this isn’t to say I don’t love books that are considered pure Fantasy or Science Fiction—the staples we’ve all read. I just don’t prefer one over the other.

Do you like the feel of a book in your hands or do prefer an electronic devises?

Got to have paper in my hands. I don’t even own a cell phone. How crazy is that? Maybe someday I’ll read from a ipad or a iphone, but till that day comes, I think I’ll always love the feel, weight, smell of a book. Now, for all those pad, phone loving readers, I still love you. No hard feelings I hope?

Can you tell us about what your working on now?genesis_po_by_zephyri-d628d1h (2)

Well, Genesis will be published later this year, likely around August—follow me at wjgarret.blogspot.com or Facebook to get all the details. I’m working to get the word out every way you can imagine. Talking with you has been a big help. Cheers! I’m also working on the sequel, which I hope to have ready to submit by the end of this year or the start of next year. Outside of writing, I’ve got a lot that’s keeping me busy. I’m going to be a dad. My first child! Don’t ask me the sex though, my wife wants to keep it a secret. It’s all very exciting.

Till next time…

This week I have an author interview with: BERNADETTE WALSH who has published four novels to date (The House on Prospect droppedImage(Echelon Press) and Gold Coast Wives (Lyrical Press)) and the first two books of her paranormal series, Devil’s Mountain — Book One of the Devlin Legacy and Devil’s Shore — Book Two of the Devlin Legacy. Here is what she had to say;

What was the first book you remember loving? Do you still own it?

I was an avid reader as a child and there were sooo many books I loved. The Nancy Drew series and the Anne of Green Gables books were favorites when I was young. As I got older I loved Jane Eyre — I must’ve read it at least twenty times — and don’t get me started on Wuthering Heights.  I think from a young age I was attracted to stories about strong young girls. Now as a writer, I write about strong women.

My parents moved to Florida when I was in my twenties and living in a tiny apartment in Manhattan, so all of my childhood books were thrown out. But I just downloaded all of the Anne of Green Gables books and am looking forward to catching up with these old friends.

 What kind of books do you like to read? Do those books have an effect on your own writing?

I read everything it feels like. I probably read more books with female rather than male protagonists. I loved books by women Irish writers. If I could write like anyone it would be the Irish writer Claire Keegan–her short stories are so lyrical they are almost like poetry. I read Gone Girl recently which I enjoyed. I love Tana French, although I usually don’t like crime fiction, but her stories have so much depth I feel they go beyond the genre. I also like the Sookie Stackhouse books for when I need a paranormal fix.

When I’m writing fiction I tend to avoid reading fiction because I find it interferes with my “voice”.  I tend to read kind of nutty non-fiction like How to Spot a Sociopath and books about fundamentalist Morman sects — not that I’m proud of it 🙂

Do you remember what is the first book that touched you deeply?

I remember reading Gone With the Wind in the seventh grade and becoming completely obsessed with it.

Is there an era of writing that affects you? 1920, 1800’s so forth?

I can’t think of any.

Where do you like to write? Is there a favorite nook or corner?

I write anywhere where I have five minutes to spare. So that means on the Long Island Rail Road, my daughter’s dance class, in the early morning before the family wakes up. I can block out just about any sound, so I don’t need a “special place.”

Do you prefer one genre to another?

Devil_s-Daughter-mockup-1 (2)I prefer to write stories with strong female protagonists. That has led me to write humorous contemporary romances, family sagas and a four book paranormal romance series about a family of Irish witches (The Devlin Legacy books). While I’ve hopped around genres my books are basically about women dealing with whatever life throws at them the best way they can.

  Do you like the feel of a book in your hands or do prefer an electronic devises?

I’m a complete convert to e-readers and have three!

Can you tell us about what your working on now?

After finishing the fourth book in The Devlin Legacy series, I am taking a break from paranormal. I have started Cold Spring, a The Devlin Witch final 300dpi (2)family saga about an Irish-American family on Long Island–write what you know, right!
