To Karen however this was not just another date with her devil’s toy as she would be using it for the first time after having made love with her husband, adding to her excitement as she opened the secret compartment. This being after having gone through the same routine which included; first removing what ever night gown she was wearing; her being one to prefer the act in total nudity, where perhaps stockings might be left on. To any who might observe her… Continue

Crucifying Angel - Review by Martha A. Cheves, Author of Stir, Laugh, Repeat
'The heat sent mirage waves up from the ground, making the air in the distance wiggly and unfocused. Payce eyed the endless highway that ran through the desert toward the city the cops liked to call The Adult Disneyland and sped the unmarked car toward the first homicide scene of the day. Gavin sat silently in the passenger seat taking in the long highway and the… Continue

Murders Do Not Come by Accident - Review by Martha A. Cheves, Author of Stir, Laugh, Repeat
'She had just started to walk by a tightly clumped set of evergreens, when all of a sudden she felt a large heat searing pressure on her chest. She fell backwards, dumbfounded. She glanced down at her chest and observed a large set of deer antlers had penetrated her chest and lungs. Her last thoughts before she lost consciousness were why would a… Continue

Last year mustered in a new president, a sad economy, and plenty of unemployed people.
As a writer, I'm self-employed and living creatively close to the poverty line. The idealistic days of soulful writers in Parisian garrets, swigging cheap wine and pounding out the Great American Novel are gone with Hemingway and Fitzgerald.
Modern writers once worried people would stop reading altogether. The success of Harry Potter defied that theory. The public willingly paid money… Continue

Fast Track - Review by Martha A. Cheves, Author of Stir, Laugh, Repeat
'I prefer to see the world not in blacks, whites and grays, but in rainbow colors. The contrasts can be stark, and there can still be room for individual expression, but there are boundaries, too. Choosing the right colors for the painting of your life can be an adventure.'.... But what if the painting gets messed up?... Color over it. Try something new. Don't just let… Continue

Knowing the Struggle is Over! - Review by Martha A. Cheves, Author of Stir, Laugh, Repeat
K. M. Johnson is a remarkable woman. She has been in the U. S. Army for 12 years. She served her first four years on active duty, the other eight in the Reserves. She recently completed her 12 month tour in Iraq. Whether you are man or woman, that's impressive to me. The hardships she has gone through in life and her way of handling life's battles has… Continue

Reflections of a Mississippi Magnolia - Review by Martha A. Cheves, Author of Stir, Laugh, Repeat
I don't think I've ever picked up a book that brings back as many memories as Reflections of a Mississippi Magnolia. And the memories were all good memories. It made me remember growing up in the south and participating in the activities the poems represent. From the "Partyline" which talks about growing up with a telephone number shared by… Continue

Lost Witness - Review by Martha A. Cheves, Author of Stir, Laugh, Repeat
'Barky looked forward to celebrating his sixteenth birthday by getting high. He grinned at his reflection in the storefront window, admiring the Mohawk he had shaped with a discarded razor in the Shop-N-Stop restroom. With a furtive sweep of the street, he veered off onto a gravel drive behind a strip mall. Satisfied no one could see him, he two-fingered the blunt from… Continue

Tilly's Tale - Review by Martha A. Cheves, Author of Stir, Laugh, Repeat
First let me say that I'm an animal lover. It doesn't matter what the animal might be, I love them all but dogs are my favorite. They give non-conditional love no matter what you may do to them or how you may treat them. After reading the first few pages of Tilly's Tale I had to put the book down, hold my own dog and cry. The neglect of this beautiful animal tore at my… Continue

Our Conspiracy Theories Were Right."
“One of the good things about sleeper cell is it’s ability to make you look over your shoulder and wonder about the person next to you. You also begin to see the potential for bad in everyone, even a small child. The story spends a lot of time talking about the short relationship between the soldier and the boy and even gives our glimpses of Ben’s “All American” life after the tragic death of his family. The frightening part is how the author… Continue

My Husband's Woman - Review by Martha A. Cheves, Author of Stir, Laugh, Repeat
When I read a book for review, I do no research on the book. I don't read other reviews, I don't go to the Author's site, I want to judge the book on it's own with no outside influence. When I read the first paragraph of My Husband's Woman I thought, 'this may be a book that will have a hard time holding my interest.' Boy was I wrong!
There are three… Continue

Small publishing vs. BIG PUBLISHING.
Every Author sets out with high hopes of publishing their book and seeing it on the shelves of the big chains. They deserve to be there. After brain-sweat and sacrifice, the reward should be wonderful book signings and lines of buyers waiting for an autograph.
That's the carrot that keeps writers pounding away at the keyboard. It happens to a lucky few. But sometimes the author published by a major publishing house is a one-book wonder… Continue

CEOs Don't Cry - Review by Martha A. Cheves, Author of Stir, Laugh, Repeat
'"Could this day get any worse?" Leslie Knotts muttered to herself, eyeing the watermark-circled hole in the ceiling tiles above her head. Thudding and muffled expletive rumbled from the hole. She yanked her cashmere scarf from her neck and stomped the slush off of her Prada heels. She took one look around her new office in the Carterville branch of Hanston and Boyd… Continue

It's in the Eyes - Review by Martha A. Cheves, Author of Stir, Laugh, Repeat
'"Please get him." Lars looked down at her and flashbacked three years, as if he was seeing his own daughter at the morgue. Candance Hawthorne, the fourth rape and murdered coed, was almost an identical twin of Lars' daughter, Lisa. As he looked at Candance's face, he recognized some of those facial features. And the blue eyes seemed to be staring intently at… Continue
