The Appointment – A Book Review

Luke P. Narlee’s The Appointment

Getting Through Anxiety

Copyright: 2017
Rating: 5/5
My Synopsis:

The country is in lockdown and Jacob Johansen is one of the few people who isn’t totally devoid of feelings, emotions, and memories. In this scary and lonely time, Jacob receives a letter that offers an opportunity of a lifetime. But can it be trusted? If Jacob decides to take on this special offer, will he be happy with the results, or will he regret his choice? All this and more will be discovered in Luke P. Narlee’s novel, The Appointment.

My Review:

Luke P. Narlee’s novel, The Appointment, is proof that a treasure trove of fantastic indie authors exist. If ever a book can prove a reader wrong that an author must be well-known to be talented, it is The Appointment. The novel is fresh, fast-paced, thrilling, and doesn’t contain a single dull moment.

From start to finish, The Appointment keeps its…

Goodreads Sci-Fi and Fantasy Week: Why I Like the Genres

This week on the site Goodreads, they’re celebrating the genres of Sci-Fi and Fantasy – two genres that I like very much. While I’m not a huge fan of sci-fi books per say, I am a fan of science fiction movies. I’m also a fan of fantasy books.

I think one of the first sci-fi movies I ever saw was Back to the Future, a movie that has been my favorite for as long as I can remember. I love the characters, the plot, and of course, the idea of time travel. Do I believe that it would ever be possible to travel through time? No. Do I think it’s an awesome concept? Absolutely!

I’ve seen many sci-fi movies and TV shows – Back to the Future, Jurassic Park, Jaws, Spider-Man, Superman, AI, Armageddon, ET, Quantum Leap, too many to name. In addition, I’ve read many fantasy novels and short stories – Ink Heart, Harry Potter, Wicked, etc. Science Fiction and Fantasy are two of the most imaginative genres out there!

That’s the great thing about fantasy and science fiction – almost anything goes! It’s fun to play around with reality and see what one can come up with. Let’s face it, sometimes we want to think about other things besides what happens in our daily lives. Fantasizing about the ‘what-ifs’ can be an entertaining thing to do as long as the what-ifs don’t cause us stress and anxiety.

Perhaps my love for fantasy and science fiction is why the two books I wrote are of the fantasy genre. Fantasy is so much fun to write! With fantasy, you can just let your mind wander and see what it comes up with – some of the best stories come from thinking outside the box!

Like fantasy, science fiction is extremely flexible when it comes to what you can do with it. The strangest concepts can be molded into amazing stories if done so properly.

Real life is far from boring – exciting things happen all the time. However, I think we can all agree that once in a while, it’s fun to imagine a world where fantastical and supernatural things occur. I really do believe that science fiction and fantasy are two very important, fun genres. They both help to open the mind!

What are your favorite sci-fi and fantasy movies and TV shows? Favorite books that fall into these two genres? What science fiction and fantasy concepts are your favorites? Here is are some sci-fi and fantasy shows, movies, and books that I recommend:

My First Published Book, Rest in Piece!

As many of you already know, I am officially a published author! My first book, Rest in Piece, is available on Amazon.com in two formats: e-book and paperback. I thought I would give you all some information on each format and why you may be interested in reading my novel!

WHAT IT’S ALL ABOUT:

“Louise, though young, has never been one to believe in the supernatural, fantastical, or surreal. However, when she sees something unusual in a puzzle left by the previous residents of her new home, she begins to wonder if there really is something to the stories that only some have read about in books.

Louise soon realizes that she needs to save Catherine Adams, a girl who disappeared twenty years ago. With the help of angels and loved ones, Louise will be able to do something that she would have never imagined possible.” B.W. Ginsburg, author of Rest in Piece

Helpful Sites and Updates

Hey guys! First I’d like to let you know that I’ve recently updated my Goodreads page. There’s the option to have a type of blog on the site and so I’ve chosen to take advantage of the option. I will use this feature to post updates about my books; including upcoming projects, etc. However, I will still be using this blog as well as Getting Through Anxiety to do the same.

In addition, I discovered a very helpful site for authors this morning and would like to share it with you. The following is the link to the site. I hope it helps all the authors out there who are trying to create and sell their written work!
