New Review: Scars of a Survivor by Katherine Pearsall on Wattpad

I’d like to introduce Kathryn Pearsall and her short-story, Scars of a Survivor. My review is here: http://katepolicanisreviews.wordpress.com/2012/04/12/scars-of-a-survivor-by-katherine-pearsall-on-wattpad/

Or read it here for free: http://www.wattpad.com/story/746185-scars-of-a-survivor

What is Wattpad? I’m figuring that some of you are wondering about it. I found Wattpad long ago while looking for free ebooks to read online.

Wattpad is a cool, free book site specifically for electronic devices. It is in a simple enough format for phones. I said this in a previous post, but I didn’t say that Wattpad writing is often done in a post-as-you-write format, entered in installments as you go. Also reading is free and posting is free!

(I posted a first installment of my own story up there in early March  http://www.wattpad.com/3660393-the-silver-collar-part-1/intro)

If any other Wattpad authors would like a review, I’d be happy to read your writing. I’ll do a “mini review” and possibly feature a few stories per post.

New Review: Disposable People by Ezekel Alan

Disposable People

by Ezekel Alan

Ten year old Kenneth Lovelace often went to bed without dinner. Instead of feeling hunger, however, what he mostly felt was fear and shame, knowing that his family’s poverty was the reason he had no food. Kenneth also recalls his bitterness whenever his parents locked him out of their tiny, one-room house to act on their ‘urge’. This was in the 1970s, when Jamaica’s socialist regime was dragging the country into bankruptcy, and when an Old Timer had told him that he was cursed since birth.

Beginning with his earliest memories, “Disposable People” traces the life of Kenneth Lovelace, now a consultant living in the USA. After a string of failed marriages, bad relationships and other misfortunes, Kenneth looks back at his life in his old, hateful village with hopes of finding the roots of his latest tragedy. What comes out is a story of mischief and adventures, sex, prejudice, evil spirits, adversities and, progressively, violence.

Synopsis:

Luke MacIsaac is dead, and not restfully dead. His death has come the way he always feared it would: in the claustrophobic, underground heat of a Cape Breton coal mine. He had suspected it would end this way, had embraced it even, so while his body is buried, his soul settles into a watery existence of endless waiting.

But in short order the placid waters of his afterlife turn to rolling seas of time and memory as his violent past plays out again for him. Images of war, childhood abuse, and the tortured life of a brother he loved and failed threaten to inundate him.

More than anything, he wants to escape.

In his confusion and pain, he senses a kindred spirit in Astrid, a newborn struggling to stay alive. Luke helps her in hopes she may one day be the one who brings him out of his purgatory and into a new incarnation.

He discovers too late that Astrid’s soul is linked to his hellish past life. Now he must experience all the anguish they went through together, and watch helplessly as Astrid goes through sorrows of her own, before the two of them can finally meet in this world and find peace together.

Thea Atkinson is a writer of character driven fiction; call it what you will: she prefers to describe her work as psychological thrillers with a distinct literary flavour. As in her bestselling novel, Anomaly, her characters often find themselves in the darker edges of their own spirits but manage to find the light they seek.

She has been an editor, a freelancer, and a teacher, but fiction is her passion. She now blogs and writes and twitters. Not necessarily in that order.
