Fortune Cookie Forecasts and A Book Review: Beth Muscat’s, Triology, Remember the Eyes and Emma Daniels, The Dream Spell

Good morning to all. It’s happy dances to me today. I’m off. I’m off. Yay! I can write today. Read blogs. Clean house. Bathe Sir Poops-A-Lot and Hair Ball.Grocery shop, too-boring.

Yesterday on the way home from work I picked up egg drop soup and four egg rolls. I wasn’t much into eating last night. My stomach’s been in knots for the last several days. Although, I got a little piggy over the fortune cookies. Ate two, which meant I got two fortunes.

Fortune one stated the following:

A sense of humor is one of your greatest assets.

Do the angels know me or what, my friends?

Fortune two stated:

Your planning will bring rich rewards.

My comment to that one: Well, it better after all my hard work and planning. Right?

Now for the book review you’ve all been waiting for:Beth Muscat’s, Triology, Remember the Eyes.



Genre: Paranormal Romance


Beth Muscat introduces you to her two main characters Riley and Michael in, Remember the Eyes. Both are planning to go to college. Riley lives in Canada. Michael lives in England. Both have special talents.

Riley is insecure about her looks but utilizes telekinetic powers, can hypnotize people, has psychic dream visions, and dreams of her past lives.

Michael assumes the worst about things and is short tempered, but is a talented musician and song writer.

Both end up at the same college. It is there Michael literally runs into Riley, knocking her on her bum. Riley recalls his eyes from many past life dreams. It’s love at first sight for both of them. But will their love survive when insecure Riley tells all-assuming-short-tempered Michael about her abilities?

In haste, he rebounds to Brenda, a psycho-be-otch, with similar telekinetic abilities. Will she come between the two? Will she kill Riley?

I suggest, get the book and read it for yourselves. You won’t be disappointed.

Price:  $1.19

E-Book Two:

Things are calm and smooth in the first couple of chapters. Riley and Michael have given each other special gifts for Christmas. Riley purchased plane tickets to England for both of them to spend the Holidays with his parents.

Michael surprised her with a beautiful sapphire ring and a promise to always be around to protect her.

Little do they know while they’re enjoying their holiday, psycho be-otch, Brenda and some mad professor are plotting the kidnapping and experimentation of Riley.

Will Michael be able to fulfill his promise? Will Riley be kidnapped? Tortured? If so, will she survive? Will Michael make it on time to save her?

There’s also a few unknown surprises in this one, too. Nope. Not going to tell you all either.

I suggest, get the book and read it for yourselves. You won’t be disappointed. You’ll be sitting on the edge of your seat.

Price: $3.09


Riley and Michael celebrate thirty years of marriage together in this book. Their only daughter, Clara, gets married and becomes pregnant right away with a special baby. Riley’s quazi-parents are in a terrible accident. One survives. One doesn’t. Riley also finds out she’s got cancer.

This book was full of special twists, but I’m not going to tell you what they are. I’ll leave you with a few questions instead. What’s so special about Riley’s grandbaby? And, will Riley survive the cancer?

Also, you’ll need a box of tissues near-by for this read. 

Price: $3.09

You can find all three on Amazon and Smashwords.

Beth also has a snarky sense of humor and keeps a blog @

Also, Shelly gives Beth Muscat twenty shiny stars for a beautiful love story. Why give five when I can make the rules and give more? This is my blog, after all. Right?

That’s all for now folks!

I’ve got other things to do, you know. Like write.

 Happy blogging, writing, and reading!


PS-Mercury goes retrograde tomorrow. He’ll be like this until August 26, 2011. So whatever publishing contracts or deals you’re trying to do, don’t. Wait until five days after the last day of this transit. Why?Because it will fall apart. Instead, edit and rewrite your MS.
