How do you know?

In the middle of this book I'm reading, I felt something was missing. The writing is exceptional, the setting is great, and the characters are well layered. Still, something is missing. I wish I knew what it was. I'm going to finish it since I'm more than halfway through it.

So my question is, how do you know when a book is great? How do you know when the author has nailed the story? As an author, I know I love every book I write. Some readers agree while others disagree. At the end of the day, I'm satisfied and proud of my work. On the other hand, when I can say "Wow" at the end of the story, then the book is excellent.

I hope you all have a Happy Thanksgiving. It's less than a week away and before we know it, Christmas will arrive. What am I grateful for this year? I'll make my one year fitness goal in two weeks. It wasn't so much a goal to lose weight or even look a certain way, but more to keep my word to myself. I'm grateful that I was able to do that for me. There's no harm in being there for others. It is better to give than to receive, but I also advocate taking care of oneself too. If you're empty and have nothing to give, how can you be there for others? That's my nugget for today. :)

Beyond Repair? Cover coming soon!

It was love at first sight when Malik and Sydney met. Once they became husband and wife, the world was theirs for the taking. That was their past, but life has knocked them down. Things are different now. They're scarred. The day their world fell apart remains in their memories. No matter what, they can never forget when everything came crashing down around them. There is no doubt the pain is great, but can they come together before it’s too late?

They have been going through the motions for almost two years. While everything appears to be fine on the outside, heartbreak lingers on the inside. What can they do? They seem to be drifting further apart with no hopes of return. Is the damage too great for them heal together? Will love be enough or are they beyond repair?
