Review by Lisa Jack, 06/20/10

"Dream Zone is an excellent read. The stories were exciting and kept me wanting to read more and more. I loved how she made a difference in the lives of the people she encountered. We can all learn a thing or two from what Janise experienced."

DREAM ZONE Excerpt - Chapter 12

Chapter 12

Janise could feel soft lips kissing her and began to kiss back when she finally started to wake up and opened her eyes, … to Randy! She blew out and said, “Yuck! What are you doing in here? Get out!”
“What do you mean? I told you I would see you in 15 minutes. It’s been 15 minutes.”
“Fine, you would see me, not kiss me. What is wrong with you?” She rubs his saliva off her mouth. “I’m not that kind of girl. Get out or I will scream.”
“And just who do you think will come to your rescue? Everyone knows the plan, but you apparently,” he bluffs. “And just whom do you think you are talking to like that? I own you!” Randy walks over to the bed, lies down, and pats the side beckoning Janise, “Come here.”
“Sorry kid, you don’t own me and I’m not coming to you. Get up and leave or I will wake the whole house.”

Randy did not want her to scream. He wasn’t sure how he could convince her to spend some sexy time with him. She was feisty and it was a turn on. He knew he only had one night to be with her.
“Why are you being so mean? There are a lot of girls who would love to be with me,” he threatens.
“If that’s the case, go to them. Leave me alone. I really have no interest in you.”
Starting to get frustrated Randy said, “Would you rather work in the fields 14 hours a day? Yeah, maybe that will teach you how good it is to be here with me. I can also consider selling you off again. Nobody likes a stiff-necked slave.”

Slave. The most hated word in world history. It’s bad to be a slave, but it’s even worst when you forget you’re a slave. The thought of going to work in the fields wasn’t a problem. Being very physical Janise could handle hard work. The problem was the possibility of being sold away from Lomax. She despised him for even bringing the thought up.

DREAM ZONE Excerpt - Chapter 26

I wake up to a loud clacking sound. I open my eyes to see a very colorful bird watching from a tree approximately 50 feet away. I look around and think to myself, “You’re not in Terra anymore.” I sit up and fan my arms to let the bird know I am alive. I’m not sure if it a vulture or not. It reminds me of the bird that promoted a cereal long ago. A toucan I believe they’re called. The bird doesn’t move. Fine. Stay there. I’m going to look around. I stand up and take in my surrounding. It is breathtaking. I am now on a beach somewhere. Palm trees galore and sand for miles. I actually get excited and start to run down the beach giggling. I’ve always loved the tropics. I had told myself when I retire it would be somewhere with lots of palm trees. The sun is high in the sky and I began to thirst. In the short time I’ve been awake I hadn’t noticed any houses or huts or dwelling of any type. I had walked about ½ mile in both directions, staying close to shore in case a boat came by. I am unsure if I should scream out to bring attention to myself. I don’t want to drink water out of the sea. From watching a popular reality TV show, I know you are supposed to boil it first. I wonder how much of that show could help me now.

New Lower Price as of July 11, 2011 !!

Attended an Author Meeting Tonight

I went to a meeting with several local authors tonight. It was very informative. We have a lot of ideas to promote reading and writing in Oklahoma via book and poetry readings, book signings, and scholarship for students, plus more.

I'll be sure to let everyone know when we have an event.
