IT’S TIME TO BRUSH UP ON YOUR LITERARY TERMS.

Cereal Authors

You probably learned them in middle school but how many writers remember the  literary terms?  In the next few articles I will review some of these terms.

Literary devices are techniques that writers use to create a special and pointed effect in their writing, to convey information, and/or to help the reader understand the piece on a deeper level. These devices are often used for emphasis or clarity; they are also used to get the reader to more strongly connect with either the story as a whole or specific characters, themes, etc.

Okay let’s go!

SO WHAT ARE THESE STORIES REALLY ABOUT

ALLEGORY

An allegory is a story that is used to represent a more general message about real-life (historical) issues and/or events. It is typically an entire book, novel, play, etc.

On another planet two hundred years in the future, twenty-one-year-old Isla Jane struggles helplessly to figure out who she is and what her world really means.

THECITYJANEHARVEST2.jpgMarked with a forbidden tattoo of the rising sun, she is a natural champion of humanity and a gifted warrior in Heats– lavish battles fought in the conjoined minds of the participants for the morbid amusement of the masses.

Despite Isla’s desire to fade into the background, she emerges as an obvious leader of her people when the senseless assassination of a youth forces her to face the truth. Her volatile world, disguised by its elaborate battles and constant mayhem, is a prison without bars and a coffin, the lid already half-closed, that they must escape.

But when she vows to find a way to bring her people back home, Isla will have to deconstruct consciousness and the very nature of the space time…

I’ve only recently become a reader of indie authors, my reading was usually king or koontz, topped up with a bit of Coban. Angela Gascoigne is yet another extremely talented author that I have happened to come across. It starts with Rosie running away from her boyfriend armed with only her cat. What follows is something endearing and delightful, as she meets the cat allergic Danny. The characters are very believable, the story goes at a good place and urges you to read on. It’s full of humour and heartache and you just want to race on to see how it all ends. A change of author and genre for me and I’m so glad I did. On a more general note, there is an amazing bundle of indie authors, who…

 THE IMPORTANCE OF A GOOD BOOK TRAILER!

WHY YOU SHOULD HAVE ONE!

There are many views on having a book trailer or not having one and it is a personal decision. Many book trailer companies make very high-quality trailers, and some do actual film trailers to excite people’s interest in your book. The biggest problem with the actual film trailers is they are so pricey that it will make one think twice or three times about having a trailer…

To say I love this book is putting it mildly. Very rarely does a book pull me in so completely. I found myself reading it slowly. I savored it, enjoyed it, and did not want to rush through, and yet toward the end I could not put it down and I stayed up way past my bedtime to get to the climatic ending.

The use of dialect was very well done. The character development was exceptional and the author lead me down quite a path as I watched Rhona change from a young person I disliked to a mature woman I admired. My favorite character was the twisted laird himself, Edan. He was a brave and honest man of honor, who did whatever he had to do to take care of his tightly knit little clan. His goals and…
