Interview on Read For Success

Wednesday, January 29, 2014Check Out Marie Lavender and Her New Novel Hello Fellow Readers, Allow me to introduce to you, Marie Lavender. My first interview for authors of Solstice Publishing.
1. How old were you when you discovered you had a passion for putting thought to page? I was nine years old when I started writing stories.  I always had a pretty vivid imagination. 2.  Do you have a muse? If so, who (if you want to share) if not what gets you in the seat to start the process? I consider the muse an invisible entity that sits on your shoulder.  LOL.  But, really, I am inspired by anything - life, current events in the world, my observations.  And sometimes, I can't tie it down to a specific thing.  It just happens. 3.  How many hours a day do you write? On a good day, I may write off and on throughout the day.  Maybe a few hours.  On a bad day (when I am too busy taking care of the business of life to get any decent writing done), I may find the time to look through a m…

New Review!

I just ran across this review for UPON YOUR RETURN.

4.0 out of 5 starsA good Read, January 24, 2014 By  Brelliott - See all my reviews This review is from: Upon Your Return (Paperback) I enjoyed reading this story and found myself thinking about it when I couldn't get back to it. Just finished it tonight and other than a few repetitive areas I feel it was very well written. I totally enjoy that era during the 1860's in Europe. Good job Marie!

This review escaped my notice because it was only under the U.K. version on Amazon:

French Femme Fatal, 27 Oct 2013 By  Cameron Pinkerton "Cam P." Amazon Verified Purchase This review is from: Upon Your Return (Kindle Edition) Lovely story only let down slightly by the lack of history of the hero Grant.

There was so much more to be said about him. We had a tantalizing taste and a hint of titled ancestry, land and deceitful relations but it was suddenly ripped away and forgotten as the action centered on our lovely but slightly shallow heroine. I was actually slightly annoyed with her before she stood up for herself, her child and her lover.

The French atmosphere was perfectly described and some of the characters were brilliantly done. (especially her aunt) I felt I needed a little more background. I didn't understand where Fara's thinking came from. We had virtually no description of her life between when she was orphaned and being married off to the apparent h…
