OnTheNewBookReview.blogspot.com, is one of my favorite reviews for my novel Adams Point. Adams Point is the third book in the Legacy Series, which is considered by some to be a paranormal series. Me, I thought I was writing a romance novel...didn't know it would turn out to be a series. So, if you've got a moment or two, please check out www.TheNewBookReview.blogspot.com and read my review. It would be great if you would also comment on it as well. Thank You!

Just wanted to say that I finally finished editing and publishing my husband's book, "The Continuum" . It was supposed to be up on Amazon, but Amazon isn't listing it as being available, and according to them "may never be", unless, of course, I want to republish it with Amazon's BookSurge.
While I had already published with LuLu before Amazon's new edict, I see no reason to change now. My husband's book is presently listed and available at Barnes and Noble...http://www.barnesandnoble.com, as well as with LuLu.com.
Since there are many titles similar to my husband's, the best way to find his book is with its ISBN number. The 10 digit isbn # is: 1-4357-1431-8, and the 13 digit LuLu isbn # is: 978-1-4357-1431-1. There are 391 pages to the book. The tag line for the book is: A compilation of the Historical Events of Mankind on Earth: from 450,000 BC to O BC. A short blurb follows:
"The Continuum", a series of events that cannot be separated, is the author's attempt to logically and chronologically record a continuity through time and space from the creation of Earth, the colonization of Earth, the promulgation of Mankind on Earth to that particular period when the division of time occurred at O BC and the Son of God of the Universe had fulfilled His mission and departed Earth.
Personally, I think the book is fascinating, but then I could be biased.

Books are one of Mirella Patzer's obsessions, especially those that pertain to medieval eras and with
Good Morning, Miralla, welcome to my blog.
edbb: I believe my readers would like to get to know you, Miralla, would you like to tell us a little about yourself, and what inspired you to become a writer?
Mirella: The desire to write developed when I came across information on the
I discovered that the
edbb: Novels written in the Medieval Era are generally imbedded in French, English or Scottish history, what possessed you to use the Roman Medieval Era as a background for your novel?
Mirella: The market is full of medieval novels about
edbb: What gave you the incentive to create the plot and characters for
Mirella: I wanted to write a romantic suspense as a break from all the 10th century writing and research I was doing, so I decided to build my story around a castle. A Google Image Search turned up several possibilities. I chose the
edbb: How much research, if any, did you do before writing
Mirella: I’ve been deeply entrenched in researching the 10th century since 2002 and feel very comfortable there. For this reason, I chose to place
edbb: Are any of your characters in Bloodstone Castle, indicative of any people you know in real life, are any of them a combination of some, or are they all a figment of your imagination?
Mirella: All the characters are completely fictionalized and I created them all from scratch. I think this is because in the trilogy I am working on, they are all real life characters.
edbb: Since you appear to be smitten by the Medieval Era if you were given a chance or a choice to be transported back in time where would you like to go and why?
Mirella: Most definitely I would go to the 10th century and meet the characters I’ve been researching, Otto the Great, his wife
edbb: If you were a character in your novel, which one would you like to be? What is it about this particular character that intrigues you so?
Mirella: Although she is a minor, secondary character, I would love to be Smerelda the old wise woman. She is loved, knowledgeable, self-possessed and confident. All the good stuff that comes with maturity. I posted a picture of what I think she looks like on my blog: http://bloodstonecastle.blogspot.com.
edbb: Are you working on a sequel to
Mirella: I am not contemplating a sequel to Bloodstone. Instead, in addition to the trilogy of the 10th century, I’m working on a novel called Orphan of the Olive Tree, which is a short story written by a queen in the 14th century. I’ve expanded the plot and developed the characters. Once my medieval novels are complete, I’d like to write some historical westerns. I live in western
