For Moving In

Seriously Reviewed said "You know? Every so often you read a story that starts a little slow on the first few pages and then.....BAM it just explodes! This was one of them for me."

Kaye's Book Review Page
on which she said The book is "short, sweet, light-hearted and just plain fun."

Vince at Philosophy of Romance said "Alice Audrey’s voice is fresh, feisty, full of surprises and always fun. The author also deals with real people having real problems and she does it in a very insightful way."

Nessa at Chrysalis Stage said "If you like sweet, fast-paced romance with a hot hero and all of the misunderstandings that two people can throw at each other, then you will love this story."

Night Owl Reviews didn't have anything nice to say about it. Hey, you can't win them all.

Brenda Talley of Romance Studio said " I recommend this book to anyone. It was a pleasure to read and I shall look for more of her work in the future. "

By Guta Bauer at Murphy's Library did it twice! Once in English and once in Portuguese. I'm assuming they both say, "Life goes on, choices need to be made and we can never let our past deny us of our future. That’s just some of the things we learn from this story. "

Sandra Nachlinger said "It's been a while since I've read a novelette, and I enjoyed this quick read. MOVING IN by Alice Audrey is a sweet story (rated PG or maybe even G) laced with humor. The best friend character is a hoot! This book is a fun escape and just what I needed to read today."

If you did a review of my book, let me know! I'll be glad to link to you, even if you didn't like the book.

Suzie's House

She was serious. Ethan’s body froze.

“No.” He fumbled the soup bowl in his hand, but managed to setting it safely on the kitchen counter. “No, I don’t want you to move out. You or Emma. You know I love you both.”

Tired

He snapped and growled at anyone who came too close to his junk yard, as surly as his dog.

“Leave them tires alone! It might look like junk to you, but it’s valuable to me. Did you know I once built a house out of tires like these? Fill ‘em with dirt and they’ll keep you cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Don’t be trying to throw ‘em out!”

One day someone stole his car. He didn’t say a thing.

“Why do you care about all these used up parts, but not a car that runs?”

“The car can get a home anywhere. Us used up parts aren’t so lucky.”

Suzie’s House 383 : Innocent Until Proven Guilty

Suzie's House

When her daughter came home and announced that she wanted to move out, Sophie went into full denial. She knew it was denial, but she couldn’t seem to make herself focus on the issues. So she found an excuse to pretend nothing was happening while Emma barricaded herself in her room and waited for Ethan to come home.

Better Ethan than James.

Goal, Motivation & Conflict by Debra Dixon p.133

Hank needs to learn that it is important to be true to your own moral compass of right and wrong. Never superimpose someone else’s belief system over your own.

It’s a book on writing. Very useful, even while I’m working on a rough draft.

Halfway

I have now officially hit the half way point in my book. I was writing much more efficiently at the beginning of the month when my part time job went full time and my obligations in all kinds of places went nuts.

Now I’ve finally hit a lull in the pressure, and wouldn’t you know the writing slowed way down. I think it’s because I have time to actually think about what I’m putting down “on paper”. When it comes to writing fast, it’s never a good idea to look too closely at what’s there.

Suzie’s House 382 : Emmy, Get Out of Your Head

Suzie's House

Emma tried not to think of anything too malignant while riding home with her brother. The drive would only take a few minutes, but she was sure he’d manage to say something nasty before they reached the house.

Desperate Times

We were driving a new car, and couldn’t be sure just how far into the red we could get, on the last day of our trip when we noticed how close the gauge had come to Empty. The question was, could we make it the last few miles, or should we try to find a gas station in the middle of the night.

Though it would further drain the tank, we decided it was best to turn in at a little town and hope for the best. What we found was this – a single, credit-card-only gas pump set up with nothing else connected to it. Except a porta-potty.

What a relief! And since we were back in the states, our credit cards would work. But what an eerie feeling to come into a place where there is no sign of another living soul and find something like this.

A few weeks after we got back, I mentioned the place to my wandering son. He knew exactly where I was talking about. Apparently he and his friends got stuck there for three days while hitchhiking. They slept under school buses just down the road from the gas pump. The woman at the diner was very nice to them and gave them leftovers. He remembers the place fondly.
