Blog All About It Challenge ~ January 2018 - Winter

I DREAM OF WINTER
When I heard about this challenge, my excitement levels went up a notch. Why? This was a great opportunity for me to start having discussion posts on my blog. However, when I discovered the prompt for January would be winter, I scratched my head and wondered what I have gotten myself into.  What could I possibly write about winter, having had no experience with the season? You see, I from the island of Jamaica, which does not experience the four seasons. Instead, it is either sunshine or rain, hot or cool and the threat of hurricanes between the months of June and November. Now there is a topic I could write extensively on, but that is a story for another time.
Throughout my life, I have had the pleasure of meeting persons who provided me with their varying views on winter. In addition, I have seen photographs of what winter looks like. I know this can never compare to the real thing, but for I have no choice but to experience it through the eyes of others. Growing u…

INTERVIEW WITH KHALED TALIB @KhaledTalib

Image
Today I have the pleasure of  hosting Khaled Talib on the blog. He will sharing important information about his latest novel  Gun Kiss
You’ve written three novels, but none except Gun Kiss has a splash of romance. Why?
Blame it on an old movie that I watched one evening. A famous movie star who starred in it also reminded me of a pre-university friend who in some ways resemble the actress. Unfortunately, we lost contact. Recently, I approached a newspaper reporter in Singapore for help to find her. He published a story about my novel in relation to finding her. I wanted to give her a copy of the novel.  I named the actress in my novel Goldie St. Helen. The protagonist is Blake Deco. 
As a male author, did you find it difficult to write a POV from a woman’s perspective? 
Well, I didn’t dress up like Tootsie if that’s what you mean, but I did spend time making observations. I also tried to delve into a woman’s mind to weave in emotions, thoughts, reflections and the things they talk about i…

GUEST POST: ELLIS SHUMAN - THE BURGAS AFFAIR

Image
I am pleased to welcome Ellis Shuman, author of The Burgas Affair, to Totally Addicted to Reading!


What Inspired Me to Set My Novels in Bulgaria
My crime thriller, The Burgas Affair, is set in Bulgaria and Israel. Why Israel? That setting can be attributed to the fact that I moved to Israel at the age of fifteen with my family and have lived here ever since. But why Bulgaria?
Most readers would probably not be able to locate Bulgaria on a map. I had never been to Bulgaria and knew nothing about the country when my job was relocated to Sofia, the capital, for two years. Bulgaria? Of all places in the world! I didn’t speak Bulgarian and coming from Israel, I wasn’t prepared to face the harsh winters of Eastern Europe.
