Title:  THE PURPLE LIGHT: AN HERB AND LIFE ENTHUSIASTS SURVIAL GUIDE

Author: Anthony Taylor

Number of pages: 168 pages

ISBN: 9780359415151

 

The Purple Light: An Herb And Life Enthusiasts Survival Guide is a spiritual and inspirational novel written by author Anthony Taylor.

Author Anthony Taylor talks about how he encountered the Purple Light in one of his narcotic trips and how he learnt to live with It. The author says there are different colours of light or aura. Each colour influences and governs and moulds our behaviour and the choices we make.

Author Anthony Taylor terms the Purple Light as the highest form of divine light. It is pure. It is just, generous and kind.

Initially, the author tries to ignore the existence of the Purple Light but finally embraces It. He has now remodelled his life in accordance with the tenets of the Purple Light. Author Anthony Taylor has transformed his life from that of a cocaine addict to a man of God. He now spreads His teachings and the importance of the Purple Light through his writings. The Purple Light: An Herb And Life Enthusiasts Survival Guide showcase what the author wants to communicate to the world.

In the middle of reading the book, I emotionally snapped. I got aggressive and I had trouble handling my behaviour. So, I stopped reading The Purple Light: An Herb And Life Enthusiasts Survival Guide for a while. A week down the line, I was calmer and more rational. I had figured out a lot of ‘why’ and ‘why not’s’ of my life.

In the cacophony of words and expectations that surround us, it is nearly impossible for us to listen to God’s voice or our inner voice. This book has brought me a lot of peace and insight. I can’t tell you how the dynamics changed. But I could feel a physical shift in my circumstances. I am confident that The Purple Light: An Herb And Life Enthusiasts Survival Guide by Anthony Taylor came to me for review for a greater purpose.

The one who reads The Purple Light: An Herb And Life Enthusiasts Survival Guide with an open mind and courage, will take back something positive from the book for sure.

The Purple Light: An Herb And Life Enthusiasts Survival Guide also talks about how the author Anthony Taylor sees life after embracing the Purple Light. He talks about his views on political leaders, animals, technology, people in general and more.

Indians associate the Purple Light as the colour that signifies the highest chakra in meditation. I could spiritually connect to that concept of the book.

The Purple Light: An Herb And Life Enthusiasts Survival Guide, is for those who can keep prejudices at bay. It is not for everyone although everyone should try reading it once. J. This is not just an everyday self-help book. It has taken the author years to write the book. The first part was written when the author experienced the Purple Light while the second part was written much later.  By then the author had embraced the Purple Light. Still, the story flows smoothly and the writing style remains unchanged.

The Purple Light: An Herb And Life Enthusiasts Survival Guide by Anthony Taylor can serve as an inspiration for those who want to quit using drugs and start a new life.

This spiritual and unusually special novel deserves no less than infinite accolades and a bunch of 8s. But, we at We Love Quality Books will refrain from setting a precedent.

We at We Love Quality Books give The Purple Light: An Herb And Life Enthusiasts Survival Guide by author Anthony Taylor shiny 4.5 Stars!

Book Review: Exit Velocity (The Spotlight Tales Book 2) by S Pearce

Title:  Exit Velocity (The Spotlight Tales Book 2)


Author: S Pearce


Publisher: Amazon Asia-Pacific Holdings Private Limited


Number of pages: 112 pages

 

ASIN: B079R3VTVP

 

Exit Velocity is the second book in The Spotlight Tales Series. The book is written by the prolific author, S Pearce.

Have you ever read a novel without realising that you have reached the very end of it? Exit Velocity by author S Pearce will leave you wondering about that and a lot more.

Have you ever read a novel wherein, you turn the pages, re-read chapters, just to get to the bottom of the suspense thriller? Please read Exit Velocity to feel the thrill of re-reading portions or the entire book and digging out the truth.

Exit Velocity by author S Pearce reminded me of my days in college when as a student of Criminology; I look and re-looked at pieces of evidence to find the answers.

I have never enjoyed a book so much! It is not only a suspense thriller but a book that looks into the complexes and short-comings of people. The book talks about how decisions can be fatal and irrevocable. Exit Velocity by S Pearce is a book that will tell you about how people succumb to little temptations. You will learn why revenge is more powerful than love. The novel will also tell you about why people rationalise all their wrongdoings.

The feeling of persecution is often associated with adjustment issues and denial. Author S Pearce effectively touches upon this subject.

Exit Velocity made me question two things:

1. Do all good things come in small packages?

2. Is everything sweet, wonderful?

The book is so gripping that you will not realise you have reached the end. The clues are interestingly revealed. Each hint is subtle. If you lose focus, you miss out on a hint. But I am sure, the book involves the reader to such an extent that losing concentration is impossible.

Honestly, it is one of the best suspense thrillers I have ever read. I pride myself for identifying the criminal in the first chapter of any suspense/thriller/mystery. This book kept me not only guessing till the very end, but I also re-reading portions of Exit Velocity to identify the culprit.

The tone of the book is complaining and is just right for the subject. All the characters in the novel lament and have passive aggressive thoughts. It sets the mood of the book. The dark clouds the author talks about in the last page of the book looms on the readers from the very first page.

Author S Pearce’s book Exit Velocity is not only entertaining, spine-chilling and engrossing. It is also full of information. That makes the novel Exit Velocity an informative suspense thriller.

Does Exit Velocity by author S Pearce deserve anything less than the full marks? No, absolutely not. The honey-filled suspense thriller Exit Velocity written by author S Pearce is exemplary.

WeLoveQualityBooks gives this amazing, sensational, adrenalin pumping novel, Exit Velocity, nothing more and nothing less but 5 Stars.

Book Review: From Destitute to Plenitude: Breaking Through Barriers of Poverty

Title: From Destitute to Plenitude: Breaking Through Barriers of Poverty
Author: Helene Louiesa Mynhardt
Publisher: Helene Louiesa Mynhardt (June 11, 2018)
Publication Date: May 27, 2018
Number of pages: 111 pages
ASIN: B07DNYSQRJ

 

From Destitute to Plenitude: Breaking Through Barriers of Poverty written by Helene Louiesa Mynhardt falls under the category of non-fiction. The novel takes on from the narration in Memoirs Of A Play-White The Autobiography & Other Writings.

 

The author’s story runs parallel to the story of South Africa after the end of apartheid.

 

The book mentions how Helene Louiesa Mynhardt finally finds her life partner and how they get married at a time when people’s mindsets had not changed although apartheid had come to an end.

 

In the book From Destitute to Plenitude: Breaking Through Barriers of Poverty, author Helene Louiesa Mynhardt goes against all odds to set up a debt recovery company called Sterling Debt Recoveries. She faces challenges with all her might to see her company grow. She also ensures that her employees grow with her.

 

The book lives up to its name- From Destitute to Plentitude. There are plenty of examples that confirm what an important role the right attitude plays in one’s life. The author always had the intention of making her money work harder for her. Her enterprising skills are very obvious in the book.

 

Fortune favours the brave. Author Helene Louiesa Mynhardt and her husband were rewarded for being brave and strong by the universe. They won a lucky draw on their wedding day that took care of their catering bill. The author was also able to resell her wedding dress for a no profit no loss. The story doesn’t end there. With her skill at identifying opportunities, Helene Louiesa Mynhardt purchases houses, upgrades the office furniture and makes her business grow.

 

She helps out even those relatives who were rude to her. It is an example of how the author doesn’t allow personal feelings to come in the way of doing the right thing – the true mark of a good business person. As the author grows in her life and in business, South Africa also grows as a country with reformed rules in banking and lending.

 

The book discusses the role of Standard Chartered and their stress on being an ethical bank as does the author. Even when days are tough and dark (due to electrical blackouts), the author holds her ground as does her country, South Africa.

 

From Destitute to Plenitude: Breaking Through Barriers of Poverty discusses financial terms and procedures. Those who love banking and finance will love the book. Those who love inspiring true stories would love From Destitute to Plenitude: Breaking Through Barriers of Poverty as well.

 

The book inspires us to dream and to never give up. It is brilliantly detailed and informative. Those who are facing difficulties in their business or are too scared of failing to start their own thing can refer to From Destitute to Plentitude: Breaking Through Barriers of Poverty for insight and inspiration.

 

For this motivating non-fiction that describes the journey of the author and South Africa from destitute to plentitude. We at We Love Quality Books give From Destitute to Plentitude: Breaking Through Barriers of Poverty written by Helene Louiesa Mynhardt, 5 Stars.

Book Review: You're Everything I Need: A Forbidden Romance

Title: You’re Everything I Need: A Forbidden Romance

Title: Youre Everything I Need

Author: Mia Ford

Place of publication: New York, NY, USA.

Publisher: Mia Ford Publishing

Date of publication:  September 22, 2018

Number of pages: 432

ASIN: B07HLVZVQX

Youre Everything I need by, Mia Ford is a romance. The protagonist Cooper Ventry is a successful businessman who has lost the one he loves. He finds love again in Lexi and they live happily ever after.

Youre Everything I need has a hackneyed plot. There is no element of surprise. However, the author Mia Ford has tried her best to add as much spice as she could but unsuccessfully. The novel has love, sex, romance, revenge, a sick ex-boyfriend, good friends and anything else one can imagine. But nothing really holds the readers’ interest.

Sadly the chapters of the book are all titled Cooper and Lexi, alternately. The novel is too long and it is slow paced.

The only thing and the only thing that stood out in the novel Youre Everything I need by Mia Ford is the conversation that takes place between various characters. The conversation style is realistic and interesting. The narration which is the major part of the book falls flat.

Writing a review for this novel was tough. There is not much that one would remember about the book. It is good to read some novels that don’t hit a chord with the readers. It adds a kind of freshness in the readers’ minds when it comes to reading the next book.

Author Mia Ford deserves one star for making an effort to come up with such a long and elaborate novel. That’s one star for her hard work. The quality of conversation in the book was the only saving grace and deserves another star.

To sum it we rate the romantic novel, Youre Everything I need by, Mia Ford two stars.

Book Review: My Sister and I by Sean-Paul Thomas.

Title: My Sister and I

We Love Quality Books reviews, My Sister and I written by author Sean-Paul Thomas.

 

My Sister and I, is a Crime, Thriller & Mystery. It is a Fiction/ Women’s Fiction published by Paul Thomas Publishing. Before we start reading the novel, there is a disclaimer that reads, ‘My Sister and I, is a work of fiction. Names, places and incidents represented are either the products of the author’s imagination….’

 

And boy! What an imagination author, Sean-Paul Thomas has. My Sister and I, is a book that can’t be put down once we start reading it. We, @WeLoveQualityBooks, finished the novel in about a day and a half. Why? How? Such questions are relevant ones. And we have only one answer…

 

My Sister and I, is a book is gripping and unputdownable.

 

The novel has two protagonists. It is a narration of one of the sisters about her sister and her life. Unlike most of the children their age, the sisters have a tough and rough life. But with grit and spirit, they face the challenges. The novel talks about the special bond that twins share. My Sister and I, also highlights how differently the next generation thinks about parenting. How they always question every instruction parents give the children. It is a different question that the sisters in the novel are quite right in questioning their strict father’s instructions and learning.

 

Honestly, the father the twins had was quite a repulsive guy. He is the perfect villain that no one can identify with. Two lines are all I can give the villain of the novel. Sean-Paul Thomas, the author of My Sister and I, has done full justice to bring out the darkest shades of the character.

 

My Sister and I is a very good example of how heredity and environment play an important role in shaping up an individual’s personality. With very similar genetic composition and living in an identical environment, two individuals may turn out to be totally different. My Sister and I by Sean-Paul Thomas makes us think of another hypothesis…

 

Does self-will somehow overrule the heredity and environment theory?

 

The novel, My Sister and I, is gripping, scary, dark, and fast-paced. It is a book a book lover cannot miss reading. Yes, the book does get dark, but through that darkness, our protagonists find a new light- a new life.

 

Evil exists. My Sister and I, describes that in graphic detail. The novel, however, also points out that after every dark night there is a beautiful morning. After every storm there is peace. After every hopeless event in life, there is a crack of hope.

 

The novel My Sister and I by Sean-Paul Thomas has excellent team-work with an impressive Cover Design by Andrew Crains. The editing by Hannah Franchesca deserves a special mention. Author Sean-Paul Thomas and his novel My Sister and I, totally deserve full marks.

 

For this dark and twisted and perfect novel, My Sister and I, we @WeLoveQualityBooks can only think of one score – 5 Stars.

Interview with Author Sean- Paul Thomas for WeLoveQualityBooks.biz

An Interview: Sean-Paul Thomas

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Interviews

Author, Sean-Paul Thomas in an interview, spoke to us about what makes him the create inspiring, heart-touching and sincere novels. He also told us how his writings cross-over over various genre at WeLoveQualityBooks.biz.

 

What makes a novel stand out? Why a writer touches a reader’s consciousness more than the others? Why is the author, Sean-Paul Thomas a wonderful writer? I guess it emanates form his joie-de-vivre and his never-give-up attitude. No wonder, his novels have been recognized with award nominations, wow book reviews and excellent readership. Here are the excerpts.

 

Among the latest releases by author Sean-Paul Thomas are:  ‘The Fairy Boy of the Seven Seas: A Dark, Young Adult, Fantasy Adventure’ that released on March 23, 2017. ‘The Fairy Boy of Calton Hill 3 (The Fairy Boy Chronicles, #3) ‘ was released on June 1, 2017.

 

WeLoveQuality Books: Sean-Paul, I loved your novel The Old Man and the Princess. What drives you to write novels that touch a reader’s heart?

Sean-Paul Thomas: I just always try to write what I enjoyed reading and watching myself when I was younger. I like stories that are real and that people can resonate with, or have a certain familiarity with while reading them, but I also want them to have a touch of fantasy about them too.

 

WeLoveQuality Books: Tell us about your journey as a writer.

Sean-Paul Thomas: I started writing screenplays all through my twenties but never really had too much success with them. When I turned 30, I began rewriting those same screenplays as novels instead, and I’ve really enjoyed the process since. I think it’s improved my writing immensely to use some old screenplays as blueprints for more in-depth novels.

 

WeLoveQuality Books: How much did your background as a child from the army-background mold your writing style?

Sean-Paul Thomas: We used to travel around a lot, so my imagination was always running wild, trying to imagine the next place we were going to live in before we actually went there. It was hard too, always making friends every few years and going to so many different schools that I actually lost count. So sometimes I would rely on books to get me through the hard times of being alone while moving from base to base and settling down all over again.

 

WeLoveQuality Books: Of all the novels that you’ve written, which one do you most relate to?

Sean-Paul Thomas: I guess Sarah Smiles is the book I most relate too, as it is the book which is most personal and true to me and my family, growing up on one of the many army bases around the world that we lived on.

 

WeLoveQuality Books:  Have you ever faced the writer’s block? How have you coped with it, if you did?

Sean-Paul Thomas: Sometimes yeah. Going for a walk is good. Mediating is good too. Or just standing on your head for 30 seconds. LOL. What works best for me though is leaving half-finished sentences from where I last left off in a chapter, just so I can start writing a few words and sentences immediately, once I open up that unfinished book again.

 

WeLoveQuality Books: As a writer, I sometimes get so carried away by my day to day life, that I can’t put my creativity into writing. Other writers might be struggling in a similar fashion. What would be your advice for us?

Sean-Paul Thomas: Try and figure out what time of day you are at your most creative. Morning, afternoon or night? And put an hour aside to read through your own work and write a little too. Turn off the internet. Put your phone on silent or airplane mode, just to make sure there are no distractions and then just simply read through your own work and write too, if you can. Improve on that work and try to make it better.

 

WeLoveQality Books: The Old Man and the Princess was very well received. Please tell us about the awards.

Sean-Paul Thomas: Yes, it was nice to be nominated for my first award, even though it didn’t win, but it was still really cool all the same. It’s encouraged me now to spend more time on marketing the book further in the future and also to start entering some book competitions to try and boost my profile a little more this year.

 

WeLoveQuality Books: How about your new novel The Fairy Boy of Calton Hill? What can the readers expect from the novel?

Sean-Paul Thomas: Yeah, I just released part 3 there, so it’s continuing on from the first two books. The world is getting bigger and bolder and more adventurous, and more characters are being introduced too, so it is a challenge to keep track of what’s happening. But I’m having a lot of fun writing it and book 4 should be out later this year too.

 

WeLoveQuality Books: Some of your works are being adapted into screenplays. Isn’t it exciting to see your work in a different medium?

Sean-Paul Thomas: Yes, I’ve been adapting the books myself back into screenplays again and just slowly submitting them to different producers. I’ve had some good keen interest in a few of them, but it’s a long process, so I’m really hoping that one of them gets picked up this year.

 

WeLoveQuality Books: What do you think is the highlight of your writing career?

Sean-Paul Thomas: I’ve only been writing books for a couple of years now, so I hope all my best highlights are still yet to come, but getting some recognition for the old man and the princess was very personally pleasing.

 

WeLoveQuality Books: What are your other interests apart from writing?

Sean-Paul Thomas: I love traveling, hiking, following Scottish football and my team Hibernian FC of Edinburgh. I go to all their home matches. I love playing tennis too. I also used to be a rugby player in my twenties, but too many injuries forced me to give up playing, which I miss so much.

 

WeLoveQuality Books: Your work is relatable to a different audience and it makes an impact on everyone. How do you cross-over between different types of the audience when you write?

Sean-Paul Thomas: I just enjoy writing in many different genres. I know a lot of writers and readers prefer authors to write in just one particular genre, but I have so many different ideas that cross genres all the time that I just don’t care what people think anymore. If a story resonates with me and I feel really passionate about it and the story and the characters, then I will try to write it to the best of my ability, regardless if it is romance or a sci-fi, period, horror lol.

 

WeLoveQuality Books: Did you ever face failure in your profession? How did you overcome it?

Sean-Paul Thomas: Yes, all the time. Which is why I don’t just stop at writing one book. I want to write dozens so that my writing is always improving and getting better, and then I will assess where I am when I have around 20 or so books out. Nothing sells forever, so you have to keep coming up with new ideas, new stories, and new adventures and hope that one of them will pick up a good audience, which is why I have recently been getting into writing a series.

 

WeLoveQuality Books: Where do you draw your inspirations from?

Sean-Paul Thomas: Everywhere and from anything. Even just out walking in the mornings before I write. Sometimes a TV show or an interview I see on YouTube will inspire me, or even reading about some crazy story in the paper or on the local news, and I’m like, damn, that would make a good book.

 

WeLoveQuality Books: Please tell us where we can get your wonderful work from? I am sure, the readers would want to read all your novels.

Sean-Paul Thomas: I can leave some links below, but mostly just from Amazon right now. But I hope to be able to create a website soon where I can sell them directly to readers from there too.

WeLoveQuality Books: Is there a blog or page, your fans can follow you on?

Book Review: The Old Man and the Princess

Title: The Old Man and the Princess

Author: Sean-Paul Thomas

Publisher: Paul Thomas Publishing

Date of publication: October 1st, 2016

Number of Pages: 161

ASIN: B01M1AGJX7

 

The Old Man and the Princess written by author Sean-Paul Thomas is a Mystery, Thriller & Suspense, a Cozy mystery published by Paul Thomas Publishing. The novel is a fiction that will leave an indelible mark on its readers.

The novel is the journey that the protagonist Shersha takes from her birth till her teens. It talks about that one incident that would change Shersha’s life forever.  We see a head-strong girl move through various foster homes and a sad childhood. Most importantly, we see the fire and the courage the young girl exhibits.

The novel is also about an old man and how Shersha and he form a bond in dangerous circumstances. The Old Man and the Princess brush upon the adventurous zeal of a teenager to the dreams of a senile mind. The plot is gripping, pulling, funny, adventurous, cosy, with a surprising end.

As a book reviewer, I have read many novels. The Old Man and the Princess will always be one of my favourites. I can gift it to friends, assured that they will love it. This novel is a keeper and deserves multiple reads. I don’t think I will ever part with the novel. In fact, I would ask one and all to read it. This novel is for teenagers, parents, young adults, would-be parents, couples and everyone else. I not only fell in love with the novel, but it made me see my parents in a different light. I give them more concessions than I gave them before. For some reason, this novel made me understand a parent’s heart as well as a child’s desires, expectations and emotions. Both the parent’s a child’s feelings are not wrong. The only thing that bridges the divide is love.

And this novel is all about love.

The novel made me understand that a bond between a parent and a child is unbreakable. And dreams do come true. As long as we don’t give up on ourselves, luck will not give up on us. Primarily, Old Man and the Princess by Sean-Paul Thomas made me realise that there is a guardian angel watching over us. It’s someone we can never identify, but if we think hard, we realise there is someone who has protected us, the best they can. It is also an assurance that whatever might come our way, it could have been worse if an invisible power didn’t guard us.

I loved Old Man and the Princess by Sean-Paul Thomas. However much I try as a book reviewer, I can’t remain objective towards the novel. That’s because I loved it. I loved it so much that even after months of reading it, I think about it every day. I have already read it more than once and I am looking forward to a re-read.

This novel is for the keeps and for re-reads. To sum it up, Old Man and the Princess by Sean-Paul Thomas absolutely deserves a five star.

Brooke Williams and The Leftover- An Interview

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Interviews

Brooke Williams spoke to us about her new release, ‘The Leftover’ at WeLoveQualityBooks.biz.

 

It’s not easy to write a love story. To add a comic flavour to love is even harder. Love can be such an emotional roller-coaster! Brooke Williams and her book ‘The Leftover’ make you see love otherwise. If there are any perfect love stories in the world, where there are” no big tragedies and love wins after all, ‘The Leftover’ will deserve a glorious mention.

Book Review by Welovequalitybooks.biz for The Leftover_Brooke Williams
Book Review by
Welovequalitybooks.biz for The Leftover_Brooke Williams

‘The Leftover’ by author Brooke Williams has released on September 1, 2017.

 

This romantic comedy has already received 30 reviews on Amazon.com with an average rating of 4.6 stars. How did author Brook Williams come up with such a superb novel? Read this interview to find out more!

 

WeLoveQuality Books: Brooke,  your novel ‘The Leftover’, released on Septemper 1st, 2017. How does it feel?

Brooke Williams: Great! I’m super excited! I got the contract for this book a year and a half ago and we’ve spent a lot of time working on editing and the cover etc. I feel like the book just got better and better and I can’t WAIT to share it with everyone!

 

WeLoveQuality Books: What are the things that you are doing to promote ‘The Leftover’?

Brooke Williams: Anything and everything I can. I have several book signings lined up for the fall, for one. I have been on many different blogs and am reaching out to reviewers. I have to admit, marketing is not my main talent, but I’m trying!

 

WeLoveQuality Books: Megan, the heroine of the novel works at the radio station. You have been a radio announcer yourself. How similar are you and Megan?

Brooke Williams: I get a lot of characteristics for my characters from me or people I know and Megan and I are a lot a like. We both wear glasses, for one, and we both feel more comfortable alone than in crowds. I think I deal with my introvertedness” better than she does, but it’s still there! I don’t swim well, either, which is something that comes into play in a very big way for her!

 

WeLoveQuality Books: What did you like most about being a radio jockey?

Brooke Williams: It’s sounds strange, but being on the radio is a very good job for a closet introvert like me. I talked to thousands of people on a daily basis, but in reality, I sat in a room by myself, basically talking TO myself. So it felt like I was alone and that worked out well for me! It was fun to get to go to all of the concerts and actually meet the bands too.

 

WeLoveQuality Books: How have you adapted the learning form your job with the radio, into your writing?

Brooke Williams: I’ve always loved to write so it was a perfect segue. And I’ve heard that you should write what you know and since I spent a decade in radio, I know that world pretty well! I was able to take that experience and write it into a book to make it more real.

 

WeLoveQuality Books: Your previous book was associated with reality television too. Are you a reality television buff yourself?

Brooke Williams: I do like a good reality TV show every now and then! Specifically Survivor and The Bachelor. I wouldn’t say I’m a buff because those are the only two I watch regularly, but they do fascinate me! Sometimes I wonder what the shows would be like with someone like me on them. And that’s kind of where the books come from! That idea evolving.

 

WeLoveQuality Books: What do you think makes reality TV addictive?

Brooke Williams: I think people can see themselves in some of the characters. With scripted shows, there’s all these gorgeous actors and things go according to the plan on the script. But with reality shows, you never know what’s going to happen and at least some of the people are more real. Anyone can get on the show!

 

WeLoveQuality Books:   In ‘The Leftover’ each and every character of your plot was very strong. How tough was that to achieve?

Brooke Williams: Characters are hard to form because I’m not the type of writer who plans things out. I let things unfold in the story. So the characters come as they come and that’s that! I don’t really plan them out. I had no idea how large of a role each character would play when I started writing them (other than the main two, of course). So I was lucky that they fleshed themselves out enough as the story went along!

 

WeLoveQuality Books: The Leftover had no negative character, as such. How difficult is it to write a story where there are no villains?

Brooke Williams: Well, Andrew was sort of a bully character, but he got what was coming to him so that was satisfying. There doesn’t really have to be a “villain” in a romantic comedy. The push and pull of the story revolves around the couple and whether or not things will work out for them.

 

WeLoveQuality Books: The character in your novel, Andrew. Do you think he will ever find soul mate?

Brooke Williams: Maybe he and Wendy Weathersby (the host of the show) should get together!  I think he could come around. There’s something in his background that makes him the way he is today. If he went back and dealt with those issues, he could be a stand up guy that some lucky girl would be pleased to have. Perhaps that’ll come in another book…

 

WeLoveQuality Books: Now ‘The Leftover’ has now released. Are you working on your next book, yet?

Brooke Williams: Honestly, not really! I do have a short story coming out in November called “Another Backwards Christmas.” But that might have to be it for a bit for me. I’m a freelance writer professionally and I work on blogs and web content etc for clients. I have two young daughters, one of which is in school, the other just in preschool. So time is very limited. I’ve found that once I get my freelance work in, I don’t really have time for other writing at the moment. That being said, my youngest will start kindegarten next year and I have all sorts of ideas floating around. So with any luck, soon!

 

WeLoveQuality Books: Brooke, when you’re not writing, what do you like to do?

Brooke Williams: Write. J hahaha It’s my favorite thing to do! But when my girls are around, I don’t. We like to camp on the weekends. We have a little motorhome that’s really fun. I also love to read, which I do when I dry my hair in the morning and that’s about all I have time for these days.

 

WeLoveQuality Books: ‘The Leftover’ is a mature and ethical. What is your message to the ones searching for love or for those who are striving to make their love last?

Brooke Williams: I really wanted this to go beyond the love story and work on self-confidence. My main character, Megan, really doesn’t have any. But we see through the story her confidence in herself build. She realizes that she’s a good person just as she is and that she doesn’t have to change herself in order to find love. She shouldn’t, in fact! That’s a lesson anyone should learn. You should be loved for who you are. Anyone who loves you for any other reason doesn’t deserve you.

 

WeLoveQuality Books: Please promote this perfect love story.

The Leftover‘ is a scintillating romantic comedy penned by author Brooke Williams.

 

A young, promising, talented and lonely girl Megan Malone unwillingly accepts the offer of participating in a reality show. She has had high expectations love. Yet, she has no hope of finding the perfect one.

 

Her social incompetency burdens her. Megan’s fear of facing the new world shackles her. Her love for her sister works as an indefatigable impetus. It empowers her to challenge her social awkwardness, her physical limitations- to bloom as a more confident person.

 

Cane Trevino is irresistible! Every girl swoons over him. Every guy is awed by his personality, kindness, and charm. Cane hides a deep hurt! He has withdrawn from the world. Albeit, the world beckons him. Does he have the strength to break free from the pain?

 

‘The Leftover’ delivers realistic characters, original situations and a love story throbbing with happy possibilities. The other people in the novel add zing, fire, hatred, laughter, and adventure!

 

The storyline is compact, engrossing and believable. The novel underlines basic values that bring out the integrity of humanity. The happy-go-lucky novel, ‘The Leftover’ was seriously a fun read! ‘The Leftover‘ is unputdownable. I read it in 36 hours- straight.
