I Went Back to High School Today

I went to hand deliver some signed copies of Shadows to former teachers of mine at Sanford High School. I wrote about both of them in the acknowledgements section of the book, and the only one that was there today was Nancy Kane, my junior year creative writing teacher. A lot has changed in the past three years or so, and the English curriculum at the high school is so much different – in a good way, of course.

She told me about the students that I’ve inspired to try to get their work published. It was incredible, and I felt so important. She asked me to come speak with her Creative Writing II class next year, and I happily accepted. Even though I’m awful at public speaking, us writers have to stick together and I’ll be more than happy to tell them about my journey into the author world and answer any questions they have for me.

For those of you who don’t know quite yet, Shadows was published about three weeks early. It was sudden and unexpected, but I spoke with my publisher to get it done early because I may be doing a book signing at a local Books a Million this summer. The book needed to be published so the store could see if they’re able to get the book in stock before they can set up the event. I’ll also be trying for Barnes and Noble, which is an almost two hour drive from me, but will be worth the experience!

I’ve received a 5 star review from Kelly Smith Reviews that stated:

“This is an amazing story of bravery, inner strength and survival.”
“I love this book and I’m sure others will as well”

So you can purchase Shadows on Amazon here:

Paperback:

Kindle:

Also, if you read, please let me know what you think of it! A few sentences in the review space would be more than enough and greatly appreciated! All reviews and feedback will be used to help me with this next book! I’m (at the time of this post) at #78,516 for my rank on the amazon best sellers (which is the best I’ve been in a long time, I was in the high 600,000s) and I want to see how high up on the rank I can get! (hoping for top 1,000s at the worst, top 100 would be golden)

The Memory Closet Book Review

The Memory Closet by Ninie HammonI recently had the pleasure of getting to read The Memory Closet by Ninie Hammon. I wanted to start off with saying Ninie is an incredibly talented author. I can only hope to someday be half the writer she is.

Anne Mitchell has experienced something terrible. Something so traumatic that her mind has erased all memories from before she was eleven. The first thing she remembers is being hands down in the dirt and she doesn’t know how she got there. Suffering from Amnesia, Anne embarks on a battle with the “Boogie Man” – unknowing how dangerous that may be. Is she willing to risk her sanity to dig up a past so awful that her mind erased all memory of it? Is it time to open the memory closet and reveal the “Boogie Man”?

The Memory Closet is a book that will keep you wondering what happened and each time you think you know the answer, Ninie throws another thing at you that makes you doubt your conclusion. Even when it got towards the end and I thought FOR SURE I was right, I was wrong again and Ninie threw me through another loop.

This book not only kept me on the edge of my seat white knuckling the armrests the entire time I was reading, it also drew emotions. I found myself rooting for Anne the entire time, and pitying her as she got closer to her answers. There were plenty of times where I stiffled a laugh (and a few I burst out laughing from the comfort of the charting room at work at three in the morning – don’t get me started on how embarrassing THAT was.) and even times where my heart broke for the characters.

Ninie is a captivating writer that leaves you wanting more at the end of the chapter. I will certainly be reading more from this author.

Thank you again, Ninie! I’m honored to have had the chance to not only speak with you, but to also read your work.
