What's In The Mail and Rule of Three.

Posted by Wendy Ewurum  |  at  8:31 AM

Before I let you in on my inbox i just want to share news about a Rule Of Three Blogfest. Out of more than 300 participants, who submitted their stories, a shortlist was published. Now its left to us, the reading public, to help them out by voting for the story we like best. By the way we are very sternly asked to dig deep within our moral fibre to make sure that we vote out of merit than friendships or popularity (well it wasn't said in so many words). 

I read all 6 stories on the shortlist yesterday and thought I'm hazard a guess at who would win. All six stories can be found HERE and below are links to the ones I'm rooting for. I can categorically state that the fact that my favourite is a South African and a blog buddy is pure coincidence (I sound a bit like South African politocians here). I can assure you that moral fibre is completely raw from the deep digging **wince** I gave it as I made my decision , i'm sure you'll agree with me about the awesomeness of Misha's story when you read it.

Here's what I got recently in the mail. Lots of reading to do. I had better learn to do a weeks posts in a day.
I also noticed that there is nothing paranormal about this week's picking which is quite refreshing don't you think? :-)

I am now deep in the throws of reading Hardware bu J.L Campbell and as always she starts of with a bang.
Book Description
Camille Moyston has managed to put the nightmare of a violent attack behind her. Having forged a safe, predictable life, the last thing she needs is a cliché, oversexed Jamaican male expressing interest.
For Quinn Mayhew, life is too good to waste time chasing a haughty, irritable woman who is too cautious to accept him for the man he is, but somehow she symbolizes everything he desires in his future.
When Camille's inner fortress finally starts to crumble, Quinn is arrested for murder and everything changes...

Book Description
A passionate December love affair.
The meeting of an unexpected traveler.
The consequences of protecting a young new acquaintance.
A journey into an unknown past.
In the stories of While I’m Still Myself, Jeremy Lane eloquently describes the life changing impact of the brief encounter, showing that life and love are not shaped by an entire lifetime, but by the fleeting moments with unexpected people in unexpected places.

I really and I mean really cannot wait to read this book, it sounds so good and I've seen some great reviews.
Book Description
Caught between his job and a sick daughter, Detective Grant Matthews' life is held together with duct tape and chewing gum. Dori Connors is a person of interest in his latest case. Her ex - now Assistant Commissioner - is pushing to have her arrested. Time is not on his side. His career hangs in the balance. And he's having a hard time fighting his attraction to the curvy caterer.

Book Description
How does a person transform thoughts and experiences into a poem? "30 Poems, 30 Days: Inside a Poet's Mind"--a poetry collection with commentary--explores just that question, as a writing challenge for poet A.D. Joyce becomes a saving grace. Illustrations by CJ Tittle.

About the Author

Most know me as the author to Fabulosity Reads and in actual fact, that is the previous name of this blog. I have since then moved my books to a Wordpress self-hosted blog so that I can have a place to show a different side of me which I am equally passionate about and that is marketing and personal development. I hope you will love being here, watching me grow as I share and learn. My highest hope is that we will grown and learn together in all disciplines affecting our lives. I'd LUUURRRVE to hear from you, so don't be shy...


  1. Rule of three produced a lot of great material. I'll go check out the shortlist. Also, great books that have come for you. I have some I'm going to put in my TBR.

  2. I've read a couple of the stories so far. It'll be a tough choice. I'm taking my time.

  3. Thanks for coming by Clarissa. I only heard about this blogfest yesterday so I still have to go back and read up on it.
    Richard I think three hundred stories will take use the better part of the the rest of this year lol. thanks for stopping by.

  4. Thanks for the mention of the blogfest. Didn't know about it. Will read some of the stories.

  5. Hardware sounds pretty steamy. I'll bet that's an interesting read. I like the sound of While I'm Still Myself.

    Blogging from A to Z

  6. Kathy those stories are awesome, you must check them out. thanks for stopping by.

    Arlee _Its not steamy more than entertaining in a suspenseful sense and somehow both emotional and thought provoking for me. It a really wild read. My very very long review was done the moment I put it down. So check out Monday.

    J.L its always a pleasure.
