The morning, happy thing,
Supposed that he had come to dwell,
And life would be all spring.”

African Me and Satellite TV by Jo Robinson


Learn more about author Jo Robinson and her book ‘African Me & Satellite TV’. I highly recommend it! ~ Bette A. Stevens

Ms M's Bookshelf

I received a free copy of this ebook in an online giveaway.  These are my honest views of this novel.

AfricanMeTVJo Robinson’s novel, African Me and Satellite TV, is a most compelling and powerful novel, with a wide range of characters drawn with deep emotions, and a message some may find uncomfortable.  Which is not necessarily a bad thing.  Jo’s main character, Suzette Hertzog, is caring, artistic, somewhat emotional, and extremely inhibited.  She has lived with pushing down her abhorrence of the way whites treat blacks in Zimbabwe ever since she saw “her father punch their driver in the face.  Her 10-year-old heart had frozen in her chest, and over the next few days of listening to her parent’s vicious racist rants over his suspected, but unproven, theft of five litres of fuel, and watching him sobbing, denying it, begging them not to make him go, she finally decided to stop looking.”

VISITING WITH BETTE — AN AFTERNOON IN SKOWHEGAN


A great day in life of two authors! ~ Bette A. Stevens

SERENDIPITY

Bette’s new novel, DOG BONE SOUP has just been released. I’m about half way through it and I can hardly wait to finish it so I can review it. It is wonderful. She has a writing style so pure, it’s as if the story tells itself. It’s a story of coming of age in a hardscrabble world. Trials and triumph in northern New England.

This seemed a perfect time to remember the wonderful afternoon we all spend last October in Skowhegan. We were staying at an inn in Jackman, Maine. It’s just up the mountain — about 85 miles via route 201, from Skowhegan. In rural New England, that’s “just around the corner.”

Down the mountain we drove. Around 85 miles down, same mileage back.

We met Bette Stevens, of 4 Writers and Readers. She was in the middle of a round of editing her next book, but she took a bit…

Blog Tour: Runaway Smile


Meet my friend Nicholas C. Rossi and run away with a smile! ~ Bette A. Stevens

Things happen for a reason

smicov1I’ve come to realize lately that things happen in their own time. No matter how much I want something, if it’s meant to happen, it will, no effort needed on my part.  Other times, I might want something very much, but no matter how much effort I put into it, it just doesn’t happen – and trust me; this has happened a lot.  Then again, something that I completely ignore might just flourish in front of my eyes, unexpectedly and effortlessly.

Following that, I think about how things have “happened” in my life, leading me to where I am right now.  I studied civil engineering (my dad’s idea of a secure job) and in 1995 I went on to do a PhD in Digital Architecture (the only way for me to link my degree with two of my passions, design and computers).  Hardly a month into the course, a professor asked…

To honor M.L.K Jr. Do a act of kindness.


Kindness counts! ~ Bette A. Stevens

Remembering Martin Luther King.

A Poem by Coyote Poetry

"

Someone said to remember M.L.K. We should do acts of kindness. I believe he would appreciate his memory of anti-violence and love to be strengthen by kind deeds and love.

Remembering Martin Luther King Jr.

I was just a baby when Martin Luther King Jr. led the world to equality with his sermons of love and anti-violence.
Even as a young boy he motivated my dreams of all men and woman being treated with equality and fairness.
I wonder how different the world would be? If Martin Luther King Jr. lived. I believe the world would of been a better place.

A old man walked into the mall.
He was wearing old clothing and not talking to anyone.
Me and my daughter were sitting at a coffee shop.
The old man sat across from us.
The manager of the coffee…
