Dear blog, I have been busy writing for quite a few years now. My first story was a learning experience. It was a freakin mess. I loved the story but the way I wrote it was a train wreck in the making. But hey, it was my first story. I will return to it someday and make it right. My second story, the one I published, was also a learning experience but it was much better than the first so I gave it a shot and self published it. My third, I’m feeling pretty good about. It’s actually a prequel to the second story I wrote. Keeping track of all of this? Cause I think I just lost myself back at the first story.
So I’m pretty close to having my third book finished. It deals with characters I have come to know and care about a lot. And I even have ideas for the third book in this series in play. But I feel I need to give it a break for just a while. The thing is, I have some exciting ideas for another story. And a good friend of mine has been developing the lead character for it. She has done a fantastic job of it as well. her descriptions of Anastasia far exceed what I had imagined her to be. She understands Anastasia far better than I could have ever hoped to.
So, as excited as I am about finishing The Shield of Health and putting it up for sale for all to read, I am just as excited about starting this new project with Ashley Fontainne. When I first published The Mission I never imagined that it would lead to this. In many ways, I am living the dream.
Last year I entered a book drawing in support of a new author I had met. Ms. Ashley Fontainne was giving away a couple of signed copies of her debut novel, Accountable to None. I usually don’t read in the genre that she writes in but once I began reading Accountable to None I was caught by surprise. I found that I could not put the book down and was taking it with me to work to read on lunch breaks. With her first novel, Ms Fontainne had me reading out of my genre and liking it! As a Matter of fact, the last paragraph of my review for Accountable to None read;
Between the trailer she produced for the story and the story itself, it is clear that Ms Ashley Fontainne is nothing less than talented. I expect that we will be hearing from Ms Fontainne quite a bit in the future. I for one am looking forward to it.
For anyone who had any concerns that the Sequel in Ms. Fontainne’s Eviscerating the Snake series would not be as good as the first, I can assure that Zero Balance is as every bit the thriller that Accountable to None was. I can say that Ashley Fontainne will not be disappointing her fans at all with her second outing as a writer. Out of all the twists and exciting turns that Zero Balance takes to thrill Ms. Fontainne’s readers, there was one particular twist that really knocked me on my butt. I did not see it coming and was quite astonished when I read it. But hey, you will have to get your own copy to see where I am coming from.
Ms Ashley Fontainne has written two very exhilarating novels in her Eviscerating the Snake series, Accountable to None and Zero Balance. With both, she has proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that she is capable of writing and holding the attention of her readers. Pay attention to this Author because the future is now and I don’t see Ms. Ashley Fontainne going away anytime soon!
