As stated in my last post, I had two authors solicit reviews from me recently. One I reviewed in my last post on January 26, 2014. The other was R.L. Rushing. I am not paid in any way for this review.
Here are the blurbs for each book:
“Katastrophic Decisions serves as the back story of Katarina Redford, a healer. It takes place before she was ripped from her life and forced into Ledger chaos.
Some people would kill for the chance to be endowed with the ability to heal. However, Kata Redford and her few remaining family members have spent the past several years hiding in the rugged Oregon mountains from religious zealots and other crazies who seek to either punish her for her inherent ability or possess it for themselves. Now, at twenty eight years of age, she’s reached a pivotal moment in her life. Realizing that something she’d wanted so badly was not meant to be, with an open mind and an aching heart, she sets off to find her own path in life.
Unexpectedly, Kata is enraptured by the beautiful Levin Chase, an intriguing drummer for the band, Stage a Revolt. Through their equally undeniable attraction, Kata finally learns what it means to live life to the fullest. Thanks to Levin’s strong determination, they begin to build a rock solid future on the heels of a nearly catastrophic decision. But as usual in her life, just when everything starts looking up, her world falls to pieces.”
“Rebekah Taylor, known by her friends as Rebel, has been plagued by vivid apocalyptic nightmares her whole life. It wasn’t until the ultimate betrayal of a family member that she realized the visions held much more importance than she could ever have imagined. Kittens and rainbows have no place amid the gritty, chaotic premonitions, nor the abusive situation from which she now flees.
Finding herself on the run from not only a madman she knows, but also an elusive psychopath who intends to use her abilities to fulfill his potentially world decimating objective, she leans on the supportive shoulder of a childhood friend and one true love, Dalton Fletcher. Quite dramatically, they discover that she is not alone in the world of extraordinary talents. Others exist who also play an integral role in the maniacal grand scheme. Along with the help of others who share her curse, she and Dalton set out on a path for answers to the never ending list of questions with which they’ve all been plagued. It will take them working as a team to escape certain extinction of a large majority of the human population as well as the possibility of being ruled by a murderous, self appointed dictator. What does the world look like on the opposite side of the devil’s reign? Does anyone actually survive?”
Born and raised in Northeast Louisiana, R.L. Rushing grew up on well water, dirt roads, deer meat and garden grown vegetables. Although it would be interesting to say she spent her time exploring exotic destinations and drinking wine from barrels in Tuscany, that is not the case. R.L. lived in the real world. Currently, her days are spent working in the ever exciting world of bookkeeping. Night time for her does not mean breaking into the Smithsonian to steal the hottest work of art to sell on the black market. In fact, the only work of art she’ll see will be created by one of her awesome kids while they’re doing anything possible to keep from getting in bed on time. As with every other small town girl, R.L. has dreamed of breathtaking adventures and schmoozing with the elite. She actually managed to make it about two thousand miles and a few months before realizing that the big city lights are better left to big city girls and her wild imagination. No adventure is as fulfilling as being wrapped in the strong arms of her love while surrounded by the laughter and arguing of our not so little ones.
