This review is from: Jenny Hits the Jackpot (Kindle Edition)
The story line is creative and unique. I loved the development of the characters and the growth they both went through to reach their happily ever after. The double love triangle suspense added conflict and drama. It was a sweet romance with a sizzle of good sex and a happily ever after for the pay off. Well done.

The Lost Night Trilogy, Book One, Black Night
****
Format:Kindle Edition
In the past I’ve tended to shy away from sci-fi or futuristic romance as I have a difficult time submersing myself in them long enough to enjoy the story let alone finish it. Lori Gordon does a terrific job of leading the reader through a world which very closely mirrors our own yet she gives enough details without being over the top you know her characters are from a someplace or some time quite different from our own. The story line is suspenseful, yet she delivers resolve at just the right moment. Looking forward to the next installment of this series

HAPPY BIRTHDAY REBEL INK PRESS!

SummerLovin_Button

The theme is Summer Lovin So I thought I’d share the summer I met my husband. It was…clearing throat here…1984.
My best friend and I used to spend our Friday nights cruising up and down El Camino Real with all the other twenty-something’s. (Of course this was before gas cost $3.99 a gallon.) So one night we’re driving in my 1963 Plymouth, handed down from Dad, when we see two guys in a brand new Firebird. We pulled into the parking lot of Taco Bell, where everyone stopped to meet. I admit, that night I was admiring the car more than the driver. After a few more meetings he asked me to the movie. In the Summer of 1990 he asked me to marry him and on July 7th we eloped in Reno.
We just celebrated our 23d Anniversary and David Gordon will always be my Summer Love.

I became a Rebel in September 2011 When Rebel Ink Press accepted my manuscript Victims of Circumstance. It became my first published e-book in March 2012. It was followed by Jenny Hits the Jackpot. And for 2013 they accepted my Lost Night Trilogy with book one and two available now and book three coming soon. I am so thankful to Rebel Ink Press for helping to make my dreams come true.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY REBEL INK PRESS!

Review for Jenny Hits the Jackpot
****Modern Day Scrooge? January 22, 2013
By Lila Munro
Format:Kindle EditionAfter reading only three pages of Jenny Hits the Jackpot, I decided not only was Tyler Wells a womanizer and huge jerk, he was a modern day Scrooge. He’s spent his life hoarding his wealth of the backs of the unsuspecting, but instead of spending his days and nights in recluse, he spends them wining and dining women only to keep them at arm’s length. He soon discovers, however, that one does in fact at some point have to pay the piper.
And his payment comes in the form of eternity in a slot machine, or at least until he can prove himself worthy of a spot in heaven.
Ms. Gordon spins a classic tale of what being mean can get you into a whimsical and refreshing new paranormal idea. Not one to read tales of ghosts, goblins, and all thing which go bump in the night, I found myself drawn into the story through her use of sometimes comical situations in which a modern day Scrooge will have to pay the fiddler to dance…with Jenny when she hits the jackpot and wins his heart.
Thank you, Ms. Gordon for a very entertaining read.

Meet Author Alex Shippe, Author of beautiful imposter

Beautiful_Imposter_Fin_Sml

*Beautiful Imposter is an adult contemporary short story with mature language and scenes.
Blurb for Beautiful Imposter

Hardworking, devoted wife Jessica races home from her hectic corporate schedule to spend an unexpected take-five the boss gave her with none other than her loving husband Byron. But the gut-wrenching scene she finds on the bedroom floor knocks the wind out of her. Betrayed, angry, wounded, it’s all she can do not to drag Byron to the nearest lawyer and demand divorce. As the evening unfolds Jessica opens her heart to the man she thought she once knew, and takes a chance on love. Can they work through his infidelity? And if so, what will it take for her to forgive him? Time, it is said, can heal all wounds. Can it really . . . heal all wounds?

About Alex,
I’m a husband and father of three. My wife of 10 years has gone back to school while I’m at home trying to be . . . loads superhero theme music, stands akimbo, head turned—wait for it—Domestic Dad. By day I’m juggling kids, cooking, cleaning, errands, breathing, hitting the weights and general merriment while my wife is juggling school and her internship. By night, after I hang up the cape and cowl, I leap into a world of fantasies and heroes. I write supernatural, paranormal, adult contemporary and erotica. Needless to say, my life isn’t boring. It’s crazy. Now, if I could finish every story idea in my head that would be the ticket.

I enjoy traveling. Seeing new sights and sites. Eating new foods. Sometimes torturing myself with something that’s so heinous that I might regret it later, especially if there’s a record of it on someone’s cell phone. I enjoy reading a wide variety of books, from Kahlil Gibran to Hemingway to Tolkien to Gibson. I can handle just about any song. And on the not so rare occasion I’ll add it to my constantly growing music library.
I’ve been a graphic artist, art director, newspaper designer, and in the near future I’ll be starting a new career as a therapist. School first!
And, I’m well hung. No, you filthy head. I have reproductions all over the house. I like art and cultural artifacts. Monet. Renoir. Remington. Behrens. Kumeyaay. Italian.

Why does Alex Write you ask?
Before embarking on this adventure of writing adult contemporary, supernatural, and erotic romance I was a full-time graphic artist and newspaper designer. When those jobs went south, I took some time off to regroup. I spent a few months doing the odd job every now and then and took on some contract work but found the hustle pointless, and more like hobby work rather than a steady paycheck. One day I turned to my wife and said, “You know, I want to give erotic romance a try.” She was skeptical when I brought it up. Writing erotic romance is not like writing fantasy or science fiction, which I like to write. But sexuality and sex has always been her biggest criticism of fantasy and sci-fi. Ultimately, she said go for it. She knows me. When I put my mind to it, I’ll do it. She’s been my number one supporter throughout this whole journey. My teenager likes to crack jokes whenever she can, which needless to say is quite often.

If you’ve ever been by our place you know that I really enjoy cooking. I wasn’t always this interested. Before, I couldn’t do much except throw stuff into the microwave and hope it cooked at the right temperature. But necessity is the mother of invention, right? My wife went back to school and I donned the apron. Eventually, we started inviting friends over. Some of my meals were a big hit. We kept getting requests for repeats, which I’m happy to do. I’ll cook for friends any day.

Within our house we’re a family of five so you can imagine how difficult it can be trying to please everyone’s taste buds and appetites. My oldest is a vegetarian, so making sure there’s a no-meat option is critical. Most of the time I can keep everyone happy, but when one of my kids gets a hankering … Oh, lord it’s trouble. Not me, though. I’m easy. I’ll eat just about anything.

One of the questions I get asked is: From where do I draw inspiration? Most, if not all, of my story ideas come from conversations I have with my wife or friends, and some of those started out as threads with authors and readers I’ve met on social networking sites. It’s rare for me, in this genre, to start with an idea. I like to know what people think and feel about what makes a relationship work or what fails it, from a woman’s perspective as much as the guy’s perspective. I want to know what about the situation makes them laugh, urges them to knock some sense into a person, what is arousing, what is off limits, and then ultimately what makes it into the bedroom. Every person’s sexual wants and needs are different, just as much as sexual experiences are different. In this regard quantity does not imply quality. Reaching a fully satisfying orgasm may or may not be dependent on the prowess of the other lover. If you’re horny enough, a quick rub can get the body burning. Still, aren’t we all looking for that perfect mate who understands our wants as if that lover possessed an uncanny telepathic ability to interpret every little twitch or moan we make? I like to write about those moments, those truly open connections. That’s where the filters fall and we learn who we really are and what we really want when we decide to invite someone into our most intimate spaces.

One of the biggest and most rewarding challenges I face as an author is achieving honesty while allowing myself to be vulnerable without sacrificing willpower. To that end, I write about characters that challenge me. I write stories that challenge me. I write because I am a student of life, and to learn about life it must be confronted on the page, where it’s safe to be vulnerable. I write because I am still learning who I am.

That takes listening.

I can’t create fictional characters without understanding why these characters are important . . . why they would be important to anyone. Though these characters are fictional, the situations and conflicts they face can be real to someone who may be going through a similar life experience. My hope is that these characters are useful. No one is perfect. Everyone make mistakes. Fiction is an interesting mind space. It’s private. It’s often quiet. We invite these characters into our emotions and either learn from them or reject them. Either way, we learn something. We learn about our humanity, our human nature, and we explore at our own pace. Life is too important to rush it.
