Whispers have a way of penetrating me


I have no idea how much time has passed since I closed myself in this place. From time to time the door starts screeching on its hinges, as someone comes in. He brings in food, which I know because the plate rattles against the surface of the floor, before his footfalls fade away. Whoever he is I grant him nothing, not even as much as a glance, and I leave the food untouched.Yet even as I want to be left alone, I find myself dreading my loneliness.My heart pounds, my strength fails me. Even the light has gone from my eyes. My friends and companions avoid me because of my wounds. My neighbors stay far away.Then, somehow, I know that it is morning. I hear my troops coming back, passing through...

PROMO TOUR FOR STRONGER


STRONGERby Suzanne JenkinsGenre: Romantic SuspenseKaren Pruitt and friends came to New York on a long weekend holiday sponsored by the airlines she’d worked for, meeting FBI Special Agent Michael Calder at a bar in Greenwich Village. “I couldn’t help hearing your accent,” he’d said, a lame pick up line at best but truthful.“We’re from England,” she replied, smiling, sweeping him off his feet.His love for her took him by complete surprise. Not looking for a relationship, Michael was twice her age and a confirmed bachelor, which he later realized he should have stayed. Grumpy, crotchety, irritable were words used to describe him around the office. Everyone noticed the difference on Monday; he ...

Completing Our Toolkit


Hey Everyone,There's something I've been thinking about for a while that I wanted to share. It has to do with the number of mass shootings we have in the US. Particularly, the shootings that take place in schools, but also in general. And isn't it a testament to a horrendous failure on the part of our society that the previous sentence even makes sense? This post isn't about gun law reform, though I agree that's necessary. Instead, I wanted to consider other contributing factors. Because I think working to solve a problem from multiple angles is generally more effective than putting all your eggs in one basket, so to speak.Also, I want to be clear up front that I'm not trying to excuse peopl...

I could dub this journey, ‘The war to end all wars’


 I remove my crown, and with a heavy heart I raise my arms, and put a bronze helmet in its place. The time for words is over, except for using them to excite my troops into following me. Come what may, victory or defeat, together we will march from one battlefield to the next. I could dub this journey, ‘The war to end all wars.’ I tack my horse by putting the saddle on, then the girth and the bridle. I hold the reins, bounce gently in the stirrup, then swing my leg over, and sit down in the saddle. Then, with a select group of fighters, I ride out of the compound. Its gates creak to a close behind me. What I leave back there is the past: seven years as the ruler of a single tribe. This place...

One of No Other Kind


A great review of my dark fantasy book, Twisted:5.0 out of 5 starsOne of No Other KindByGabriel Constanson March 29, 2018Format: Kindle Edition|Verified PurchaseMs. Poznansky is a master storyteller, and artist, who is able to combine insight, nuance, place, and time, with abstract ideas, situations, and characters. To say her stories are "one of a kind" would be a disservice, as they are really "one of no other kind". Twisted is unique, yet strangely approachable and identifiable, even though the context may be within a setting unknown, or not previously pictured, by the reader. I was somewhat wary of this collection, believing it might be filled with esoteric, or philosophical ramblings. M...

Mel and the Mob: Molly V Lovell

Mel is a lawyer. She's smart, classy, and a little sassy.  And she gets herself into a bit of a pickle in this book. But with the help of her boss' teenage daughter she manages to wiggle her way out of it. Somehow, I don't think we are done with Mel and her predicaments. I enjoyed this read.  It was smart and smooth, not to complicated and stressful like some books I've read where the author tries too hard and makes the book so difficult to read it's just easier to put it down than to figure out what is going on.  Nice plot, not to many characters, and they are all likable.  I hope to see something romantic spark for Mel in the next book, without giving anything away. I would totally read th...

Special Feature: What Does Romance Mean to Me? by Bonnie McCune


Hi, readers! I am beyond pleased to announce a very special post today on ILRB. Recently, I asked both authors and romance readers to come to me with their responses to this big question: “What Does Romance Mean to Me?” I was genuinely interested in what made us all tick, what continued to draw us to the genre. Why do we love “love” so much? I wanted to dig deep into the heart of each person. And I’ve gotten some incredible feedback. Today is the next post in this series. So, without further ado, let’s turn the mic over to author Bonnie McCune, who has some things to say about the question at hand. Love at first sight. Many of us, at least the very young and very naïve, believe it happens. B...
