Authors Need and Want Honest Reviews

It has been brought to my attention that some readers are having problems leaving a book review on Amazon. Here ya go:
1. Go to Amazon.com
2. Type in the name of the book you wish to review.
3. Click on the book title.
4. Click on a review star or scroll down to "write a customer review". and click on that.
5. Write your review in the space provided.
6. Click submit.
You will be given a message that your review is under review (yea, I know...redundant) and that you will receive an e-mail notifying you when your review is approved for publication.
A book review is generally two paragraphs detailing your thoughts on the writing and subject matter of the book. Reviews are extremely important to the public success of a novel and especially crucial to an author's state-of-mind.
All authors appreciate a positive review, but honesty is the best compliment a reader can give a writer.
Please consider reviewing the books you read. Amazon is only one of many on-line venues. Good Reads is another place that accepts reader reviews.
Thank you for allowing me to practice my teacher skills while continuing to recover from my recent retirement from the educational sector:)

My Challenge:
I review daily but not always for my WV author friends. I vow to post review more frequently. How 'bout you?
Game On!

CBD and MS

We warriors are a resilient breed. After speaking extensively with a CBD enthusiast over the weekend, i finally bit the bullet and bought the "good" stuff...all in the name of research. Things have changed a bit since my first CBD experience, including the flavor. This particular product comes in natural (an earthy flavor), peppermint (self-explanatory), and cinnamon (Yum!).Because particular brand (Hempworx) has ONLY two ingredients : CDB and hemp seed oil.   I decided to document my experience here, so if any of you are interested we can discuss our personal journeys. As you all know, MS is an expensive condition that requires careful thought to additional treatments and related expenditures, most of which are not recognized by insurance companies and/or medical professionals; so, every experience is a financial gamble. I started my new "treatment" on Saturday, October 26, 2019. The instructions direct you to take two-three drops under the tongue twice a

BORED? ARE YOU A COUCH POTATO?

                                                                 Bored? Are you a couch potato? If you are already prone to this malady, the following information may be dangerous in encouraging this behavior. This writer is not responsible for damages done. As a result of today's blog topic,  my personal couch potato activities are responsible for the lack of yesterday's post. In an attempt to justify my actions, I blame Netflix (in the name of research).  The best way to prove a fact is to test it, right? Yesterday I definitely put Netflix to the test by watching hours of Safe, a one-season Harlon Coben creation that whetted my love for crime/mystery/action-based entertainment. Harlon Coben is an American author whose work I have enjoyed immensely over the years,  discovering Safe as Coben's break out into film became that much sweeter when The Five caught my attention another series of his own. I will finish The Five today (unless some saves me) so that I can

The origin of a dream

                                                      September 2011 brought a new challenge for me as a public educator. I was to teach seventh grade for the first time. One would think that this could not possibly be much different than the eighth graders to whom I was accustomed; but, any instructor of middle-grade students is aware of the maturation occurring within the bodies and minds of these youngsters. It was only for one year that I added a class of seventh-graders to my curriculum. I needed a new idea or two in designing my daily lessons. A solution came to me early on. This group of seventh graders was particularly bright. After only two weeks of participating in ou8r weekly Friday Journal Sharing, a student had the audacity to ask me  to share my writing with the class.  "We know you're writing, Mrs. McCombs. You've even got a special journal to write in," James said. "And sometimes I see you laughing at what you're writing." The perceptive
