DISEMBLANCE!

I've never done this before and I'm excited.  I'm introducing a friend of mine that has written a book.  Her name is Shanae Branham.  She is and has been a blog friend of mine for quite awhile.  She also lives in one of my favorite places - ALASKA!  

Yes I have been to Alaska once and it was wonderful.  Her book is called DISEMBLANCE.

This is a little synopsis of Disemblance:

Jason Tanner lives between two worlds. Problem is, only one is real.
As a computer prodigy, Jason has spent his life with limited social contact due to his father’s secretive work on a hologram machine that can create digital immortality. When his father is murdered and framed as the Comfort Killer, Jason is targeted as the killer’s new fall guy. Having spent much of his youth living in the virtual world his father created, he must now go on the run if he is going to save himself, his brother, and the beautiful girl next door. 
An exciting, action-packed ride to a future happening today, Shanae Branham’s modern techno thriller is the perfect exhilarating adrenaline rush for a techno-savvy generation. Expertly weaving cutting-edge technology with almost unbearable suspense, she crafts a wild, white-knuckled thriller that pushes the boundaries of science. Full of intensity and extraordinary vision, DiSemblance attacks the senses as it challenges the mind and imagination.

Here is a cute video of Shanae being asked some questions about her book and what it took to write it.



Here are the links:

Just a note - all her reviews have been rated five stars so far and I've bought the book myself, but haven't received it yet.  I hope you all enjoyed this - that you learned what all is involved in writing a book - which I know quite a few of you have done - including myself.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:“To be rich in admiration and free from envy, to rejoice greatly in the good of others, to love with such generosity of heart that your love is still a dear possession in absence or unkindness - these are the gifts which money cannot buy. ”
Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1894);
essayist, poet, novelist

Hey CC!
In regard to the following on my blog:

"Did you write this? I am so glad that you asked me to read it.

I understand it at such a divine level - it means the world to me.

I am going to save it. If I decide to write a post on it - may I if I give you credit?"
----------------------------
Thanks! I'm so glad you did like it (I thought that you might :-) ) and yes, I did write it. You may use it anytime to provoke discussion (or whatever) just give me credit, alright (my name after the poem.)

I am in a writer's poetry group here but have been so busy with my life, family and all I haven't been writing nearly as much.

It is about the 'blind' times in life when you don't see (as well as you'd like, perhaps) over the hill. But one must trust.

Love ya CC and thank you so much for your kind words. This mean a lot. :-)

louvregirl, Karen
