Write A Book That Doesn’t Suck

Your Book Might Suck…
But it doesn’t have to.
You are an awesome writer with an incredible fiction story the world needs to experience. But your book… well, it kind of sucks. So let’s fix that.
Setting your novel apart from the rest is a choice.
Fiction is more than a character doing stuff in a place you’ve invented. There are rules to magic and seasons to setting and double meanings to words, and a cadence to sentence structure if you want to write a book that doesn’t suck.
I guarantee you will find tricks and treats you’ve never heard or read before in any other writing book. If not, let me know and I’ll refund your money. But if I’m right, and my book helps you to write a novel that doesn’t suck, then I’m asking you, in return to leave a positive review. That’s fair, isn’t it?
Ready to get started? Great! There are questions with space to answer at the end of each chapter to help you along your journey. I’m super excited for you and wish you all the luck in writing your novel!

An Exposé on Dark Agendas and How People Are Fighting Back   
The truth has been hidden from us while a global policy of mass depopulation and exploitation has been carried out behind the scenes for the past half-century. The author, an independent journalist, became aware of this agenda only in the past few years. She found it hard to believe, but in-depth research and the testimony of whistleblowers worldwide have exposed these strategies. They include geoengineering (chemtrails), fluoridation of water supplies, GMOs, vaccinations, false flag terrorist attacks, and economic warfare by the group David Wilcock calls the Cabal. However, despite this grim reality, a positive shift of mass awakening is occurring worldwide. Tribunals are being established to prosecute elite offenders; revelations of hidden technology like free-energy and new economic models are being put forth. The author shows how humanity is claiming its rightful heritage as spiritual beings and charts the course of our elevation of consciousness.
MASS AWAKENING gives us all real hope for an amazing future.
Mass Awakening is Shoshi Herscu’s well researched and yet profoundly personal handling of intensely shocking material, rarely covered in print. It is both a true inspiration and a much- needed breath of fresh air.
—Ada Tourtsakis
Excerpt

INTRODUCTION

My name is Shoshi Herscu, a 47-year-old woman and an independent

journalist from Haifa, Israel, who survived a childhood growing up

in three different countries: Romania, Israel, and the Ivory Coast

where my father relocated us as he worked as a construction engineer

for the “Sonitra” company. Growing up in such varied countries and

cultures imbued me with an appreciation for their great diversity and

an abhorrence for the mono-culture that is being “engineered” in

today’s world, especially in the West. And although, like most of us,

I came to trust my parents and their surrogates—education, church,

and government—I sensed at an early age that I was being sold “a bill

of goods,” or a certain life perspective and wanted to choose my own.

Living in Africa with its earthy population more in touch with

primal instincts allowed me to develop and trust my intuition

about people and agendas. After returning from Africa, I travelled

extensively with my parents in Europe at a time when traditional

cultures were giving away to the Americanization of the world. I was

a very curious child in general, reading a lot (a real bookworm) and

developing a different perspective from the people around me. I just

love learning about new places, tasting new cuisines, and meeting

new and different people from all over the world all the time. I’m

just intrigued by the diversity and new experiences to have.

It was for this reason that after my undergraduate studies in Israel

and my release from military service, I chose to obtain my MBA in

England (1994-1995). I was interested in international business, and

I wanted a more global perspective. After I graduated, I traveled the

world and got as far as Australia. I enjoyed the atmosphere there,

the great diversity of its landscape, but on the other hand, I noticed

the large number of surveillance cameras in all its cities. I didn’t

know back then that it was one of the “5-Eye Nations.” To me it

was strange, as Australia is supposed to be a democracy. So I asked

others why there were so many surveillance cameras here? People

told me that it’s for “security reasons,” but Australia wasn’t exactly

a terrorist hotspot. While I wasn’t convinced by this explanation, I

didn’t investigate further.

When I was traveling there, the then Israeli Prime Minister,

Itzhak Rabin, was assassinated. I was so shocked that I didn’t want

to return to Israel. I felt that if an Israeli prime minister, one of most

protected people in the world, could be assassinated in Tel Aviv by

a radicalized student, it was no longer a democracy and I didn’t

want to live in such a country. I cried for two days, even though I

disagreed with his views, and was ashamed to leave the house with

my swollen eyes. I did return to Israel at the beginning of 1996.

I worked as a content editor and the Webmaster of Infotour.

co.il, a site covering tourism in Israel, including attractions and

events, which was sponsored by the Ministry of Tourism. Seeing

the commercial need, I became a Hebrew-English translator in

  1. I’ve been a social activist over the years and an independent

journalist writing about these topics in my blogs. Between 2012-15, I

worked at for pCon, a computers and technology magazine in Israel

after applying for a job as a reporter and writing an investigative

report on encryption in the corporate world. Learning about how

people and companies used encrypted messages via email to hide

information and activities, I got my first glimpse into how pervasive

the control of information had become. I assumed this was a reaction

to government surveillance. I then discovered that a discrete mailing

service (encrypted) was shut off by the government, despite the

business success of this service. 1 I realized that the “Big Brother”

wants to know everything about us and wouldn’t allow any “slips”.

I followed this lead in other investigations and saw how

information was being managed and in many cases hidden from

the public by the government. From this job and others in the

technology sector, I became an avid researcher able to analyze masses

of information and to find the truth about our real reality and

connecting the dots.

In 2013, I started seeing news alerts on covert topics such as

Geoengineering, Chemtrails, and Solar Radiation Management

(SRM), which I ignored for months. I just didn’t give any thought

to these alerts. They appeared too farfetched. My mind was, in the

parlance of technology, just turned off to these indications. Then

something struck me. I looked up at the sky one day and saw that

there were strange cloud shapes like cobwebs; some were spread

across one part of the sky but not in another, and there was no

uniformity in their shapes. I also noticed white tracer lines that

started “swelling” in the middle of the summer where in Israel

we’re supposed to have blue cloudless skies for at least half a year,

and definitely during the summer. I started taking pictures when

I came upon pink clouds. Yes, pink. One day I was so shocked

that it was dark at noon in midsummer that I was speechless. I

took endless photos as evidence for my followers on Facebook, who

apparently weren’t aware of this phenomenon because it wasn’t being

reported—or was it being suppressed?

The riveting second installment in the Edj series.
How do you stop an enemy that can see the future?
After the harrowing events of Herrig’s World, Edj is hot on the trail of D’Orneo. His pursuit leads him to Villalba, a world of tropical island paradises where over a hundred thousand luxurious resorts cater to every whim or flight of fancy. Fortunes are won and lost on Villalba twenty-nine hours a day in the casinos that never close. Gambling on anything for anything from cards to shark fights, dice to gladiators; if it can be wagered on, it can be found on Villalba.
Edj arrives to find that the once powerful economy of Villalba has ground to a halt. A new drug, Peek, grants users the ability to see the future. The casino industry is in tatters and the new governor is at wit’s end. Suspecting that D’Orneo is somehow involved, Edj plunges into an investigation. Going undercover as a member of the galaxy’s premier drug cartel, The Revenants, a group of beings who prolong their lives by harvesting body parts, Edj begins to unravel the truth.
What he uncovers has larger implications than anyone could imagine. With his cover blown, his guardian, Sam, neutralized, and his enemies able to see his every move before he makes them, can Edj find a way to stop Peek from becoming a weapon capable of bringing down the Empire?

My Thoughts

Another home run from Timothy Burns in the Edj of the Empire series. Kudos to him for taking the same characters and kicking both their journeys up a knotch, but also giving them new purposes and taking them to the next level as characters. This was a elevated book compared to the first which is exactly what a series should do from one book to the next. Flawless. Fun.

My Thoughts

Thank you Roberto Arcoleo for bringing to life such a wonderfully vivid Sci-Fi world. This is a very fun journey, it has adventure and other-worldliness while weaving in mystery and romance. It’s a mix of a lot of different things and I was pleasantly surprised by the way Roberto Arcoleo was able to connect them all. It’s a very well paced and balanced book.
About the Author

 photo Roberto_zpsyoufebha.jpg

Roberto Arcoleo was born in New York City, Queens to be exact, into a working-class Italian-American family. Roberto’s father was a hardworking, grumpy, and reserved restaurateur, his mother a warmhearted, talkative hairdresser.
Roberto was a bit of both. He grew up in Astoria in a two-bedroom ground-floor apartment with one younger brother, his parents, and an invalid grandmother. His early years were tumultuous and confused. Roberto never felt that he fit into the molds that were laid before him. His early extended family home life was chaotic, and his teenage years were worse. After the Catholic grammar school, he continued on to a Catholic high school. He hated them both.
As a teenager, Roberto felt more and more apart from his surroundings. He withdrew into his own world. To onlookers he seemed full of bravado, but he was timid and reserved at heart, always feeling out of place. He started lashing out at the world with violence as mark of distinction. He found a home within street gangs and hard drugs at fourteen. Roberto started living on the streets at fifteen, but was soon taken in by a schoolteacher uncle who lived on Long Island. His uncle held him captive from his own devices until he graduated high school.  Later, in college, he studied psychology hoping to find answers. Still troubled, he didn’t find the answers he needed in the text. He gave up his clinical ambitions for more underground alternatives. The same uncle gave him his first camera, and he discovered photography.
Under a name other than Arcoleo, he obtained recognition as an artist. He received his MFA from Brooklyn college and later saw his art reviewed in the New York Times. Roberto’s work has been acquired by major collections. Among them Brooklyn Museum, the Chrysler Museum, the Museum of Fine arts in Houston and the Museum de l’Eysee, Lausanne Switzerland. He was the first artist working in photography to be given a one-person exhibition at the Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art; he was awarded a stay at the American Academy in Rome; and his work is presently in the National Gallery of Art.
He always had an urge to write and his late mother was always asking for his first novel. He told her he had to wait until he was called from a special place.

Can she overcome her fears and look beyond her own perceptions to accept a greater love?
*Contains Sexual Content*

My Thoughts

This book just completely blew me away. I loved the wit and humor but the elements of dark and creepy were very apparent also. I loved the PNR the best. Paranormal Romances are my favorites and this one definitely fit in with the ones I love. I thought Dayna was such a great leading lady, Brit Lunden really gave her life and a purpose and made me connect with her from the start. I think there are so many elements to this book you will not be expecting and it will really hit on so many levels after you have read. It’s wonderfully done!
