Book Review: The Steps


51i6kp0cl2l

Buy “The Steps

The Steps by Iveta Redliha is a thriller story. I have not read anything by a Latvian author before but I have read a few Russian novels and enjoyed them similarly.

The way that Redliha weaves together the story of several interlocking lives is masterful. I began to figure out the secrets each life held, but not entirely until the end, and even then there was a major part I could not have guessed. The characters are complex and interesting and there are no holes in the plot that I could see.

Essentially, the story is of a young free spirited woman who contracts to be a surrogate mother for a childless couple, to earn money to change her life. Whether you’ll take the side of Leonora, Kurt, Nelly, or Greta is up to you. All display an unsavory side each in their own way. It’s exciting to enjoy their escapades vicariously in this story of what can happen when things don’t go as planned.

AND NOW WITHOUT FURTHER ADIEU-P. S. WINN.

INTERVIEW:

What inspired you to write your first book? – In 2012, my husband was told he didn’t have long to live. We decided to move to my hometown so I could be closer to my family. Moving fast, we almost had to leave some of the writing I had done and hid in a closet. I decided to put them in book form then and there and now it seems after 44, I can’t stop.

Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp? – I believe in hope despite odds. I like to think you will find that even when the books are supernatural or science fiction. I like to add a bit of a spiritual twist. Not religious so much as the spiritual side of hope and love.

What books have most influenced your life most? – Anything and everything I have ever read has an impact on my own works. I think this is also true of anyone I meet or anywhere I have visited.

Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing? – I hate the promotion, but the rest of writing is always an amazing journey. I love my characters because they take over the books and let me know what should be written.

Did you learn anything from writing your book and what was it? – I always learn something new. In the latest book, “Deadly Afflictions” I had to learn a lot about anxiety disorder. I love characters that overcome the flaws and problems they are dealt.

Who is your intended audience and why should they read your book? – Anyone who likes to get away from the world for a moment in time. I write everything from preschool and young adult to a lot of supernatural novels. I also think it is the readers who make the stories. Their own imaginations join with the writer’s to make a book more special than it started.

Tell us a little bit about your cover art. Who designed it? Why did you go with that particular image/artwork? – Some of the art work I draw myself, like for “Wings to Whispers” and “Viewings”. A few books are pictures I have taken and the others I use those available on create space. For the book “Viewings” the drawing of an old barn came first and the story worked around the image.

Do any of the books you write come from your own childhood? – Yes, especially my stretched stories series, which are humorous tall tales that are fun explanations for everyday things like why a cow says moo.

How do you feel when someone disagrees with something you have written? – I try to look at what they say and learn from it. The reviews that are unrealistic I try and ignore, but that can be hard. I know there are some people who write bad reviews out of meanness, which is awful, but also a fact of life that branches way beyond writing.

How do you make sure the information for your nonfiction books is accurate and up-to-date? – Mostly the internet or watching the news. I like writing supernatural books in parallel worlds when imagination is the guide and anything goes. But, I still try to maintain realism.

How long does it take to complete one of your books? – I have written 44 books in just over 4 years, so a month or two is my usual time, but once I wrote a book in a week and my 600 page book took closer to three months.

Book Review: Full Color Life – How to live a creative, balanced life


Full Color Life by Margery Walshaw is an amazing book. It is a career balancing book, but not in the typical sense. It is mostly geared toward writers and other creatives, but these principles could be applied to any type of career. As a writer, I found it extremely helpful to be reminded to balance spiritual, physical, and mental or emotional aspects of my life to benefit my creativity. Full Color Life would be helpful to any artist, writer or potentially even for dancers and aficionados of other art forms.

Part 1 of Full Color Life deals with understanding why balance is important and the different factors that may be at play. There may be fears, beliefs and biases based on or rooted in things that happened in your life in the past. Part 2 contains chapters relating to diet, fitness, schedule and relationships. All of these areas need to be individually balanced in one’s life to be most effective at whatever one chooses to do, in their career or otherwise. Part 3 is the practical application of the principles outlined in the book. Full Color Life means just that. Your diet will include vegetables of many colors. Your exercise program, your schedule and your relationships should also be similarly varied in content. Variety is indeed the spice of life and if you choose variety you will be more creative. This book as I mentioned will be very helpful to me as an author and in the many other creative hobbies and pursuits which I enjoy.

Margery Walshaw is an acclaimed lecturer and publisher with the firm, Evatopia.
