The Franciscan Book Cover

The most internationally anticipated religious suspense-thriller since Dan Brown’s Angels & Demons and The Da Vinci Code, WR.PARK’s The Franciscan is now available for sale on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and CreateSpace. Written 14 years ago, The Franciscan eerily forebodes current events in the Vatican predicting the coming of the current Pope Francis and proves to be a timely novel more than a decade after it was penned. This is the first book in The Franciscan Trilogy.

Happy Easter!

Hi Everyone,

Happy Easter! I have baked the eggs and written a few rough drafts. Now, I have a few short hours to read before dinner at the family’s home.

What are your plans for the holiday Sunday? What books will entertain you for the rest of the weekend?

 

Enjoy!

Let’s Discuss…

Good Morning Everyone,

A couple of week’s ago, we discussed favorite genres of books. Today, let’s discuss length. Do you enjoy short stories, novellas, full-length novels or those epic 800+ page journeys?

I’ll admit, some short stories leave me feeling like something was missing or that it was rushed. However, when written correctly, short stories can provide a nice “vacation break” in between books. (Am I the only one that has a difficult time switching stories and characters, sometimes?) I feel the same way about novellas, too. 

I prefer the average length novel. Those massive books can be daunting, when you haven’t read the first page. However, when I was younger and I would have the summer off, I would set out to conquer one throughout those few weeks. I think in this day and age, not too many people have time to devote to reading the extra long tales.

What about you? How do you like your books, super short or super long?

Enjoy!

A Quote to Begin the Day…

“When I discover who I am, I’ll be free.”
                              ~Ralph Ellison

So today’s my birthday. For the first time in my adult life, I am just me on my birthday. Not a student. Not a caregiver. Just me. I am delighted to say I am a Book Reviewer, which was something I could only have dreamed of when I was younger, to be surrounded by books and to be able to talk to others about the amazing worlds book give us. But as far as who I am as a person… well, I am still figuring that out. 

Thanks for all your continued support. Have a wonderful week everyone!

Enjoy!
