Interview with H.G. Reilly

interviewwithhgreilly

Hi guys! Now, normally I don’t do this kind of post on Reveries anymore (this is more of a Reveries Reviews thing), but I decided to post this interview here because I’m the owner of this blog, and I can do whatever I want on it. Besides, sometimes it’s fun to read about other authors than me. I know you don’t believe it, but it is. Seriously.

Okay, I know, I know … you read about other authors … and I find that intensely disloyal of you … but we’ll move on from that distasteful revelation (*glares at disloyal readers for a solid minute*) and talk about H.G. Reilly of Wilted Rose.

My questions will be like this, her answers will be like this (don’t worry; you’re not blind … there’s nothing to see), and my comments will be like this.

Like Journey to Love (you can find my review on Reveries Reviews. Check it out; it’s a fantastic story! And I’m not just saying that; it’s inspiring!), Letter of Love was a nice story that I really enjoyed, despite it not being exactly what I expected – it was very sad!

Despite its shortness, the plot was well-rounded and well-written. I got a full sense of what was going on. I also got a good sense of the setting.

The Silent Blade by Jesseca Wheaton

Hi guys! It’s time for a review of The Silent Blade by Jesseca Wheaton! I’m a proud member of her blog tour, and today is my scheduled posting day, so I’m posting when I wouldn’t usually (according to my new schedule … which I should mention to you sometimes includes no weekend posts unless I’m publishing a novel). You can also find an interview with Jesseca on Reveries Reviews.

The Silent Blade by Jesseca Wheaton

Dromiskin, Ireland. 925 A.D.

Eira has no greater desire than to see her life returned to what it once was—before her older brother Kevin’s sudden disappearance four years earlier. But the simple life she hoped for seems unattainable; on the contrary, her life is about to get all the more complicated.

 When she suddenly finds herself and Willem, her twin brother, taken captive by someone who claims to be Kevin’s enemy, things go from bad to worse. It soon becomes clear that she and Willem are to become bait in a trap set for Kevin, and Eira knows she must try to warn him. But how, when she herself is a captive?

 As mysteries of the past are unveiled, and loyalties are revealed, Eira realizes how precious her friends truly are. And when mortal danger threatens those nearest to her, will she be able to trust God with the lives of her friends and family?

The Viscount of Maisons-Laffitte by Jennie Goutet

Hi guys! I won’t be online for most of this week (we’re  going camping!), so there will be no posts Tuesday or Wednesday, and probably not Thursday either. We’ll see about Friday. Maybe an excerpt of The Lady of the Vineyard (which, by the way, I’ll be publishing September 10th of this year!), but we’ll see.

Is there such a thing as Prince Charming?
Chastity didn’t take a teaching job in France to find hers, but a woman can dream, n’est ce pas?

If the father of one of her students—the Viscount Charles Jean Anne Monorie de Brase—is the best local example of princes, Charming or Otherwise, Chastity is ready to put aside any thought of falling in love again.

As much as she would prefer him to keep his distance, it seems there is no avoiding each other. With the ongoing pressure of a repentant ex-boyfriend, a nefarious drug dealer, and an art heist that spans the decades, Chastity and the viscount are thrown together by circumstances she would soon rather forget.

As the intimacy between Charles and Chastity deepens, they must decide if their love is enough to bridge the gap between their disparate worlds, and if happily ever after can exist outside of fairy tales.

Introducing Reveries Reviews

Reveries Reviews

As you may have noticed, there have been a lot of reviews on Reveries recently. As you may or may not know, this was not meant to be a reviewing blog!

Sure, a review a week doesn’t hurt. I’m an author, and introducing you to the books of other authors is a lot of fun for me! But other things were meant to be talked about on this blog, too.

Writing, for one thing … and life … and poetry … and … and puppies. WHERE HAVE ALL THE PUPPIES GONE? LONG TIME PASSING! (points for you if you get the reference … and, no, there will be no prizes for the people with the most points …)

So I intend to move most of my reviews to a new blog I’ve created with Blogger, Reveries Reviews. On this blog, I will also be featuring interviews with authors and other bloggers, cover reveals, guest reviews, and more book-related posts.

(Note: Reveries Reviews has switched from Blogger to WordPress!)

If you want you know more about it, let me know in the comments! 🙂

When seventeen-year-old Clara Boutwell married her dashing coworker, William McDonald, she was convinced her life was near perfect. The journey before them as newlyweds in the great city of Chicago was promising and exciting. But a frightening disease soon takes William in its grip, forcing them to the clean air of the western frontier in a desperate attempt to save his life. But pioneering doesn’t prove to be easy, with miles between neighbors instead of fences. On the eastern Washington prairies, the McDonalds face hardships and trials in a new world where everything is tested, from physical endurance to emotional strength—down to their relationship and faith in the Lord.

This novel tells the incredible true story of Clara and William, the great-great grandparents of the author, in a sweet narrative full of laughter, tears, and the struggles of an early pioneering family. Prepare yourself to share in their experience as you read this account of a pioneer family in Washington state, and see their lasting legacy that has endured into the fifth generation.

Beyond All Dreams by Elizabeth Camden

Hi, I’m back from camp, guys! Good to see you all again! *gives everyone hugs* What? After all that “truth or dare,” I’m basically fearless! I hug random people and sing for them and dance and lick trees! I AM AMAZING!!!

Beyond All Dreams by Elizabeth Camden

Anna O’Brien leads a predictable and quiet life as a map librarian at the illustrious Library of Congress until she stumbles across a baffling mystery of a ship disappeared at sea. She is thwarted in her attempts to uncover information, but her determination outweighs her shyness and she turns to a dashing congressman for help.

Luke Callahan was one of the nation’s most powerful congressmen until his promising career became shadowed in scandal. Eager to share in a new cause and intrigued by the winsome librarian, he joins forces with Anna to solve the mystery of the lost ship.

Opposites in every way, Anna and Luke are unexpectedly drawn to each other despite the strict rules forbidding Anna from any romantic entanglement with a member of Congress.

From the gilded halls of the Capitol, where powerful men shape the future of the nation, to the scholarly archives of the nation’s finest library, Anna and Luke are soon embroiled in secrets much bigger and more perilous than they ever imagined. Is bringing the truth to light worth risking all they’ve ever dreamed for themselves?
