        Okay, I know that my Title is less than stellar, and don't get me wrong there's nothing wrong with Bill's work, I've just come to the conclusion that I don't have a taste for Children's Literature. So please forgive my mundane titling this week. *Caution Spoilers*

The 131 Preview Review Presents Award Winning Author L.J. Charles


The 131 Preview Interview Presents

L.J. Charles


I have worked with energy, both as a yoga instructor and as a body worker for many years. When I left that profession, I was driven to write about energy and the paranormal. Many of the situations my heroines experience are created from my own encounters with energy, its power and possibilities.
 
As to the "writing," well, that started when I was eight and penned my first book on pink construction paper with a purple crayon. It was a romance that involved a princess, and although I remember very few details about the plot, I do remember that it was illustrated and there was music and dancing involved.
 
At about the same time I created my first story, I discovered Nancy Drew and my love for reading was born. It has only grown over the years, and I am rarely without a huge to-be-read stack, and a book within easy reach.
 
Now days I write award winning women's fiction and young adult novels. All of my stories combine romance, mystery, and paranormal elements. The paranormal, because it's a huge part of my life, the adventure and romance because I haven't ever outgrown my early reading adventures with Nancy, Ned, Bess and George.
 
I live in the frozen north with my husband, whose TBR stack is taller than mine, and two felines who have been known to add entire pages to a manuscript without telling me. 

Worth Breaking The 131 Preview Review Rule.

The 131 Preview Review Presents

          Well it happened, I broke my own rule. With this novel I went beyond the 131st page! Way beyond, and I hadn't even realized it happened. There I was about four hours in and I look down on my tablet and realized I was nearly 75% through the book! I had only planned on going to chapter 14, but I couldn't pry this one out of my own hands...

131 Preview Review has a chat with Lyn Sofras our Friend from across the Pond....

The 131 Preview Review is pleased to welcome BACK

Author Lynette Sofras.


Until two years ago, Lynette worked as a teacher, running the English Department of a busy London secondary school. Prior to that she spent several years living and teaching in Greece. She gave up teaching to focus on the writing and has published three contemporary romances. The Apple Tree (December 2011), which won the grand prize in Inspired Romance Novels' writing contest; Wishful Thinking (April 2012), and Shopping for Love (June 2012). In Loving Hate (November 2012) was her first Romantic suspense. Killing Jenna Crane (January 2013) is a slight genre departure for Lynette- a psychological drama/ suspense.
         Lynette lives with her family in an early Victorian cottage in a historic village on the Surrey/London borders. When not writing, she is an avid reader, loves catching up with friends, films and theatre, or trying to tame her garden and the family's rather eccentric cat.

              After working with Lynette Sofras back in February for the first time I am so very pleased to have a chance to chat with her again, this time it is after having read her genera bending Thriller Killing Jenna Crane. Come in an sit as I  chat far more comfortably with my Friend from across the Pond.... 

A Psychological Turn of Pages

The 131 Preview Review Presents 



           Firstly, before I start my Preview Review I need to say that this has been a pleasure to read and I will surely be picking it up so that I can finish it in the future.
       
            Killing Jenna Crane, is a Psychological Thriller/Suspense novel that seems to live up to its genera without being obvious. It will appeal to a wider breadth of readers. After reading the first 131 pages I am hooked and have requested the next 131!

The Best Answers from The 131 Preview Interviews!

The last few 131 Preview Reviews have been met by... Challenges. 

I understand that life happens on all sides, but if an Interview is not confirmed, and reconfirmed days prior, even if only 2 days, I will not run with the work. That has been the case for the last few weeks, fortunately, Authors like Will Van Stone Jr and Eri Nelson, were in the wings to save my ass. This week however, was not the case. So I am on to saving my own ass, and I hope to reschedule with this weeks missed opportunity. As it was rather good.

But not to be one to ever lack for content, This week I give you a recap of sorts. I've gone through my Interviews and pulled some off the best responses I've had... So Far!... Enjoy!

The 131 Preview Presents Eri Nelson

The 131 Preview Review Presents Author Eri Nelson


Eri Nelson is a nontraditional indie author who manages all areas of her fiction, fantasy, paranormal, action, adventure, and sometimes-erotic writing. Eri handles all the groundwork of her books, even the editing. Because of this Eri strives to improve her abilities along with trying to explain to readers her far from traditional sentence structures. However, she will openly admit that typos follow her.

Join Eri and her shadowy side of writing as she takes you along to explore new desire hunger filled worlds where your mind can share in the heat of the read.

       As is becoming my niche, I have had the opportunity to do a wee bit of live Q&A with Eri... Let’s see what I can stir up in my cauldron.... (Hearty Cackle)

The Moon Calls For Love Bites and Clawed Fights



"Their kiss victimized passion and made the sheer meaning of it beg for a new definition." Eri Nelson, Heated Calls From Change. 


This statement is the embodiment that is becoming the Dearhart Clan Series.

              The Call From Within: At first glance, I readied myself for what I thought was going to be yet another venture into Twilight-like romance gag-fiction. I had resolved myself to reading it, and being honest and polite, having taken a strong stance against the sparkly vampires and their pseudo sexual furry werewolves.

               After the first chapter, I found myself pleasantly surprised that my first impression was in fact very wrong.
