What’s on your To Do List for Monday! M.M Bennett Author of Honest Fame Shares Her List

Manic Monday and the start of a new week and I can hear everyone cringe with less than enthusiasm. Today, we asked our visiting author, M.M. Bennett what’s on her To Do List for Monday to inspire and get us started on our week. If I had her schedule, “riding horses in the morning” I wouldn’t have the slightest hesitation to starting my week. The rest will surprise you. Keep reading! About Of Honest Fame On a summer night in 1812, a boy sets fire to a house in Paris before escaping over the rooftops. Carrying vital intelligence about Napoleon’s Russian campaign, he heads for England. But landing in Kent, he is beaten almost to death. The Foreign Secretary, Lord Castlereagh, is desperate for the boy’s information. He is even more desperate, however, to track down the boy’s assailant – a sadistic French agent who knows far too much about Castlereagh’s intelligence network.

Friday Five - Five Things that Happened During the Writing of God's of the Machines

Friday is always a fun day at Writing Daze. Our visiting author for today is Gary Starta author of God’s of the Machines and he shares with us the Five Fun Things that Happened to him during the course of writing and publishing his novel. About God’s of the Machines Detective Sam Benson, a native New Yorker, is brash, opinionated and candid. Transplanted to work on Earth’s first colonized planet, he envisions a relatively peaceful job. But Benson’s ruthless nature might bring it to the brink of annihilation when a series of murders begins. He suspects a non-human is responsible—an android who once shared engrams with a psychopathic human. However, the detective doesn’t know other non-humans once called his new world—theirs. And as Benson obsesses with making a case against the android, he is oblivious to their return and the reason why they consider machines to be their gods. Friday Five 1 – The novel Gods of the Machines is actually a spin off or sequel to a novel called What a

My Motivation for the Labor of Love to Write “Finding God: To Believe or Not To Believe”

About Finding God: To Believe or Not to Believe Do you believe in God, life after death, or nothingness? Do you know the origins of the Bible’s New Testament? This book explores the world of science, religion, and atheism and integrates them into the aspects of Twentieth and Twenty-first Century physics. It ponders life and death experiences and includes the author’s own near death experience. Posing many questions about the realm of our existence, it stresses the importance of promoting humanity without exclusionary elements of human prejudice. These and many other contemporary issues are combined with the latest scientific and philosophic theories in the search for real truth of subjects that have brought down entire empires in bloodlust, and have each of us pondering the eternal “Why?” We are in the second century since the collision of science and religion. One is based in empirical evidence; the other is based on thousands of years of pure faith. Hang on as your perfectly ordere

Wednesday – A Writer's Words - Falling Forward by Bronwyn Storm

Falling Forward – Bronwyn Storm John Vorhaus was a writer for the television show The Wonder Years. If you ever watched the program, saw the character interactions and cheered at the genius dialog, then you’ll know why he’s a favorite writer of mine. He also wrote a book called The Comic Toolbox: How to be Funny, Even if You’re Not, and from the book is (one of) my favorite quotes: “Falling flat on your face is still moving forward.” I’m woman enough to admit I swooned at that quote—and not because I’m hypoglycemic and had waited too long to eat (and it wasn’t ’cause I read the quote, leapt to my feet in delight, and the rapid change in blood pressure left me light-headed.). Nope, I swooned ’cause it’s a damn good quote. Okay…so it took me a minute to realize he wasn’t admitting to being a klutz, and we wouldn’t meet one day over coffee at the Clumsy Clinic (off fourth and main, if you’re wondering), where we would exchange stories and compare scars. Still, the quote held me in it
