@SylviaHubbard1:

#amreading And don’t forget the local Michigan Romance authors as well!!

Originally posted on Southfield Library Reads:

Don’t let February fool you. August is National Romance Awareness Month. To celebrate, we wanted to read some great love stories besides the classics we know and love.  Here are just a handful of books filled with romance, laughter, missed opportunities, and deception.

One Day by David Nicholls—It’s amazing what a difference one day can make. On July 15, 1988, Dexter Mayhew and Emma Morley met.  On the same day for the next twenty years, a snapshot of their relationship is revealed. They face ups and downs and love and missed opportunities.

Outlander by Diana Gabaldon—After being torn apart during World War II, Claire Randall and her husband are finally together and on a second honeymoon in the British Isles.  When Claire walks through a standing stone, she is transported to 1743. Among fighting Scottish clans, she meets James Fraser, a young warrior. Together they experience a love so strong that Claire…

An Interview with H. Eugene – MWN Spotlight

H. EugeneJoin the Motown Writers Network in welcoming H. Eugene to the spotlight!

H. Eugene is: A writer and author of his newly released Fiction Thriller, The Trifecta.  His second book , Speaking With Your Lips Sealed:  The Essence of Life and Love Through Poetry is also in the works for a release in the summer of 2015.

 

He is also a video game player, sushi/pizza/burger junkie, powerlifter, wannabe bowler, wannabe Captain America, and father of three.  He was born, raised, and still resides in the city of Detroit.Outside of writing, his career has span 25+ years in various facets of the customer service industry.

 

His penchant for writing developed at a very early age, as he began writing stories while he attended middle school. After winning two first place prizes for poetry in high school, the fuse was lit.  He hopes that through his writing, he can reach and affect many.  What you will find in his books are a renewed and fresh perspective of storytelling.

 

The Trifecta

Myles Julian Larson always felt much different from others, even as a little kid. There was something burning deep within him, a manifestation that was becoming increasingly difficult to control. He always had aspirations to one day, “Save the world.” Little did he know, that one day he might be responsible for ending it. The mystery behind who Myles really is will unlock the Vatican’s greatest cover-up. The viability of humanity is foretold in the Lost Gospel, but where is it? Who is The Unopposed? What secrets are locked away in the Holy Book of Velrusa? The Trifecta, a story of deceit, absolution, and divine purpose. Welcome to Hell Myles!

#michlit #motownlit

Originally posted on Southfield Library Reads:

We’ve entered movie season. Now through the rest of the year, some of the best movies of the year will finally be released.   Unsurprisingly, there are a few stories making the transition from book to silver screen. Here are a few that that we’re excited to see:

Paper Towns by John Green—Quentin Jacobsen has been in love with his neighbor, Margo Roth Spiegelman, for years. One night, she appears at his bedroom window and convinces him to be the get-away drive in her revenge mission. The next day, Margo disappears. Quentin believes Margo left a trail of clues and is determined to find her.

The Martian by Andy Weir—Astronaut Mark Watney is the first man to walk on Mars. Six days later, he and his crew are collecting samples when a massive dust storm blows through. The crew flees the storm in the nick of time; but, Watney is trapped behind…

How would you Feel about #MotownWriters having private membership for readers & authors? POLL

As 2016 approaches and Motown Writers Network is looking for better sustainability we see power is in our outreach and how we can leverage that while not going broke trying to get the word out about the Michigan Literary Network.

cropped-mwnheader3.jpg

So we are thinking of developing an exclusive membership service for authors and readers.

For readers, we’ll have quarterly book giveaways, exclusive content from work in progresses from authors, exclusive events (online & offline) and more… (you can offer suggestions in the comments).

For authors, we’ll provide blog tours on our 7 blog network, set up book giveaway, reader chats and lots of promotional for a week on our network. There will also be discounts on various workshops and events (offline and online), plus free service offers from literary services that advertise with The Michigan Literary Network.

If you are interested in this, please like this post below or submit comments. I’d like you to respond and let me know how much should I charge for readers and authors and any other services The Michigan Literary Network could provide.

Thank you in advance. I can’t wait to hear from you.

Your author and founder of Motown Writers Network, Sylvia Hubbard
