Surprised Me! Which Is Not Easy To Do!

By Tanya R Simon on April 18, 2015

Format: Kindle Edition

I liked this book much more than I expected to. I thought I would be “duty reading” as one author for another. I immediately liked the characters, and this adventure has me stoked for the next. The idea is inventive and not easy to predict what the outcome would be for characters in this situation. They are completely mismatched and that made them fit together even better. Young adult, pre-teen, or adult, all will enjoy the story and look forward to the next adventures of this paranormal team. Truly Delightful!

5.0 out of 5 stars

For those who want to travel to different worlds!

By R. Corona on April 16, 2015

Format: Kindle Edition

This is a very interesting story about a dream traveler. The book touches on the concepts of lucid dreaming and astral projection. People that are interested in these topics will get to travel along with Delilah, the main character, and follow her experiences and the characters she meets along her adventures. Overall, the story is fun and different from most plots out there. However, the dialogue is sometimes difficult to understand due to the English dialect, but it fits very well with the storyline.

5.0 out of 5 stars

A Must Read!

By Donna M. Zadunajsky on February 23, 2015

Format: Kindle Edition

Once again, author Deborah Bowman has written an extraordinary tale of a girl named Delilah who finds herself going back in time to solve cases. I found the story pulling me in, and I wanted to read more to figure out what was going on. The more I read, the more interested I became. I’m looking forward to reading more of the series. I really like her Denny Ryder Paranormal Crime Series and can’t wait for the next book to come out. This book is for Young Adults, but I recommend it to anyone in teenage years and older.

Floating in the Air

Floating in the Air

I’m floating in the air

I shouldn’t have a care

But somehow I’m odd and misplaced

I know my mouth is located on my face

But the sound of my voice comes back to me

From some other place in the room or echoed back from the ceiling

I wonder what this vertigo means; what the dizziness is revealing

I just can’t explain how I feel …

Disconnected, adrift,  lost, unreal…

Free falling…

My inadequacies extolling…

Where do I belong?

When did I go wrong?

The dream becomes the nightmare

Beware … Beware … Beware…

Sometimes it isn’t carefree

Sometimes you just can’t see

When you don’t have a care in the world

Sometimes, it’s Terror!

Writing the Melodramatic…Reincarnated from a Vampire? How is This Even Possible?

My writing with the quill from the inkwell fixates my consciousness on a time of which I cannot tell...who I am or when I dwelled...
My writing with the quill from the inkwell fixates my consciousness on a time of which I cannot tell…who I am or when I dwelled…

(A stand-alone verse…continuation of “Writing the Melodramatic”)

I am most definitely a male from a time long ago

My mind play tricks as the memories ebb and flow

One moment I am a contemporary woman in 2015

Then I sink into oblivion and grasp for esteem

As master of mine own home in the mid-1600s

I am well to do with servants at my beck and call

I am very cruel and evil to them all

The peasant woman who has joined me in my drafty, cold library

Is bleeding from two punctures in her neck so precarious

She cries out to me to stop draining her life’s blood

Her dress in torn and weathered, her boots caked with mud

She must suffer and die for attempting to flee my domain

We would have become such dear friends if only she had remained.

How can I be this creature who blossoms in the night

Turning his back on humanity and forsaking the light?

I Tend to Love the Melodramatic In My Writing and In My Creativity…I Think I Was Born in the Wrong Century!

Once upon a dark, dreary night, chaos reigned in the sky. I took up my quill as the thunder roared and the lightning blinded my eyes...
Once upon a dark, dreary night, chaos reigned in the sky. I took up my quill as the thunder roared and the lightning blinded my eyes…

I do not know exactly where I come from or why I am so sad and dramatic

There are times at night that I see a different world…by candlelight, draped in shadows

I lift the feather and dip it into the pitch black, thickened ink

I watch the fluid drip like blood from the glare in darkened windows

It is always storming, the candle flame flickering from cracks in the ancient mansion

The fire in the hearth has expired and the chill is almost unbearable

But I turn my thoughts inward in a closed fashion

To ponder on the melodramatic and scenes that are terrible

Murder whispers through the night and I continue to write

Each scratch upon the tanned skin of an animal

Reminding me of death, of ruin, of horrific sights

I think that I am safe within, yet I am so gullible

As I live my poem within my mind, my body racked with pain

I hear footsteps in the empty room and chuckle at my absurdity

It’s just the rain beating unmercifully against the leaden panes

I glance up, expecting nothing, but emptiness and levity

A figure looks down at me, standing tall and broad

How did “she” get in here, soaked with blood and shivering?

I did not hear the latch open the door; no one spoke aloud

The look on her face is horrific, and I begin quivering

I look down at myself. I’m totally reconstructed

From a modern woman of the 21st Century

To a man, dressed in finery, frightened–reluctantly

Wondering where I am and what kind of monster I must be!

THE SHOPKEEPER AND THE BOY, Delilah, Astral Investigator, Infinity Series…Episode One is LIVE on amazon.com

This new series is a fun romp through different periods of time with a hint of philosophy and Quantum Physics to show the reality of time-travel and the existence of alternative realities. A modern teenager, a Colonial American from 1774, and an intuitive, rambunctious cat make up a team of astral investigators on a mission to save lost souls and, hopefully, the future of planet earth!

This novel is geared for “tweens”/teens/YA, but marketing results show adults are just as interested in these areas of exploration. The second episode is already in the planning stages.

I hope you will take the time to read and review THE SHOPKEEPER AND THE BOY, Episode One of Delilah, Astral Investigator, Infinity series at:

There must be a way to stop the predicted apocalypse. Delilah, Bartholomew, and Molly the cat may have the answer.

One review has already been featured on the site. My sincere thanks to Donna M. Zadunajsky, author of  suspense novels: FAMILY SECRETS of the Second Chances Series; NOT FORGOTTEN, and BROKEN PROMISES.

Cover for Delilah, Astral Investigator, Infinity Series…

 

 

Deliliah, The Boy and the Shopkeeper Cover

The cover is always the last thing I do before publishing, and I change the color and fonts and picture “a gazillion” times to quote my main character, 17-year old Delilah. Any comments would be appreciated.

It should be live on amazon.com tomorrow…I hope, unless I tear the cover apart and start again.
