My Writing: My First Poem

I loved this little poem it’s got a nice flow and the rhythm near the end is AWESOME

Firefly's Journal

Oh yes, I did say poem,  while looking for some notes in my notebooks I came across some poems I’ve written a few years back. Also, I found my very first poem I wrote 15 years ago.

Oh yes, for a 24 years older, I was being spontaneous  for entering a Poetry Contest.(It was a free contest. So, I said why not try it.) I sent my poem to the place without mentioning it to anyone.

I did come in at second place, I had to sign an affidavit form and check for any mistakes before sending my poem back. My poem some suppose to get it publish.  in a poetry collection book.

The sad thing about this, there was a major family emergency, that shook my family at the same time. (This is where I  learned firsthand,  How serious  a Diabetic coma and Stroke really was. Sorry, going off the…

My First Novel – Published!

This sounds like a GREAT little read its on my TBR list 🙂

Kate Beth Heywood

I had the pleasure of self-publishing my first novel this week which was an intensely proud moment. Just signing into Amazon and Kobo and seeing it available to download is quite breathtaking really. Having the book appear at Kindle>Humour Number# 12 on Amazon was even better. And it was #9 on Kobo earlier. What an amazing feeling.

The book is called ‘Anti-Social Media’ and it was inspired by all the bullies and the trolls that inhabit our beloved social media streams. It seems as though every time a person puts even the tiny tip of their toe wrong, he/she ‘sparks’ a ‘Twitter outrage’ and the Twitter community ‘demand’ an apology. Which they usually get. The trolls; we give them an astonishing amount of power. However, it was also inspired by how easy it is for overnight fame to come to the normal man or woman on the street.

Enter my character…

‘Rainbows & Roses – Poetry & Prose’ 03

Hello again

 So today I am sharing with you one of my saddest memories. It’s in the form of a little poem to go into my forth coming book ‘Rainbows & Roses – Poetry & Prose’. The book will be dedicated to my father.

I Wish I Could Remember …

I wish I could remember
how you bounced me on your knee,
and lifted me up high, to touch the sky
when I was three.

I wish I could remember
the sound of laughter sweet.
Especially when together
sparkling, shining eyes would meet.

I wish I could remember,
when we walked upon the sand.
We paddled in the water,
While you gently held my hand.

But all that I remember
is a smoky grey dull day,
and images in photographs
before God, stole you, away.

Now the angels share your smile, instead of me.

FamilyMini me with Mum & Dad February 1961

In memory of my father

Istvan Ferenc S’ari (Died 17th June 1966)

My father was stolen away from us in a mining accident when my brother, sister & I were mere babes. We count ourselves very lucky that mum is a very strong and independent lady and managed to bring us up alone with very little support. We have a very strong family bond and although we all live far apart, we are always there for each other.

 Any feedback is most welcome. If you liked it please share it with your friends.

 Thank You 🙂

Book Ratings!

Great little blog covers many concerns on ratings. loved the images too LOL

A friend and I were having a discussion on book ratings the other day. I’ve had the same discussion pretty often with other friends who write and thought it might make a decent blog post. What is a rating, really? It’s like a tip you give your author for taking you on an adventure you wouldn’t have imagined on your own.

Amazon has a rating system of 1-5 stars, with 5 being excellent and 1 being awful. I have my own version of this, though. Here’s what ratings look like from the author’s point of view…

5* Excellent, my day was just made so much better because someone out there loved my book. I’m not just shouting into the void. Someone really gets me, and I want to take them to dinner and thank them personally for that validation I needed to get the next book finished. I feel like this…
