The Abduction of Nelly Don by Parrice Williams Marks


Book Title: The Abduction of Nelly Don
Author: Patrice Williams Marks
Publisher: Circa Publishing
Publish Date: July 2, 2015 (252 Pages, e-books)
Genres: 1930s, book, Gangsters, thriller, true crime, true story, Non Fiction, Mystery
Disclaimer: I received this from Circa Publishing on Tomoson site for an honesty review
Description: Based on a True Story:

It’s December 17, 1931. Millionaire fashion designer, Nell Donnelly, has just left her factory, accompanied by her driver, George. She is on her way home to care for her sick infant son, David. She’s worked extremely hard to get to where she is today. From sewing dresses in a spare room, to a factory filled with over one-thousand employees, Nelly has achieved success by any measure.

But these are desperate times. The Great Depression, the effects of the Dust Bowl, has a chokehold on even decent men. Kidnappings are becoming commonplace, with only the more high-profile making the papers.

While pulling into her estate’s driveway, armed men block Nelly’s car and take her by force. There are unexpected casualties. However, Nelly has always had a survival instinct. She uses that instinct to find the right moments to escape her captors. But it is more complicated and dangerous than she could ever imagine.

Captain Harrison, a copper who needs to redeem himself, makes this case his priority. Her philandering husband Paul, rallies their employees in an effort to find her. Neither of these efforts, on their own, bring Nelly back.

Senator Reed, a powerful ally and friend of the Donnellys’, personally steps in to lead the investigation. He was unable to help a close friend, whose son was kidnapped and murdered. He is not used to failure and decides to take extraordinary steps to rescue Nelly. These steps cross him over to the other side. He elicits the support of two Kansas City crime bosses; both requiring quid pro quo in return. This deal with two devils may very well be Reed’s downfall.

Twenty-five car loads of hardened gangsters are unleashed and spread out over Kansas City in search of Nell Donnelly. Will their involvement lead to finding her alive, or lead to her demise?


What a story this turned out to be. You see how a woman had to work and get up in the world. Though most of this deal on kidnapping, You see what it like in 1930's. It more crime and Mystery of who is creating all the mayhem.

A Senator wanted to help a close friend and son. Though when he could not help them. He get another chance. Will he do everything to find Nelly Don? You learn and get twist and surprises around every corner.

As you read, you are wondering who is it is? You will want to know why? It get you to want read until you get to last page. Though for me It only held my interest. Though it a great. I say it an 4 to a 4.5 rating.

If you are a reader of crime and / or mystery. This may be a book for you.


Author, Screenwriter, Playwright

I’ve been a writer since age 6 when I pinned the wildly successful (in my own mind) THE DAY SNOOPY GOT MARRIED. My teacher at Nunaka Valley Elementary School was so impressed that she shared it with the entire school staff. Unfortunately, I never got it back!

I’ve written over 10 screenplays; some of which have been optioned. Hoping one will make it to the big screen some day. I envision Universal’s spinning globe, with its majestic horns announcing the opening of the film … my film. Gives me chills.

I’ve also written and directed a few short films, “STRINGER,” about a rogue photog on the edge of a nervous breakdown, and “F-HARMONY”; a funny spin on the dating site with an unexpected twist at the end. I’ve written and produced a short stage play, as well as founded “two film festivals. I’ve also written over ten screenplays; with two of them being optioned.

But after reading short stories from Derek Haas’ (bad-ass, big time screenwriter and producer/creator of Chicago Fire) website, aptly called “Popcorn Fiction,” (where he features short stories from writers), I decided to give it a go.

I came up the idea of marrying 1940’s Film Noir with Sci-Fi and ended up with “The Unfinished.” Love the idea of taking a character out of one world and implanting them in another… known as “fish out of water” story.

I’m also all about sharing what I’ve learned with people. Not only do I write fiction, but HOW TO books as well such as HACKING KICKSTARTER, INDIEGOGO: How to Raise Big Bucks in 30 Days, as well as WANT TOP CASH FOR YOUR GOLD?

But the novel I am currently working on, THE ABDUCTION OF NELLY DON, has me so excited as the release date is almost upon me.

Our clothing is fun, stylish and California-cool! Located in Ocean Beach, California, the land of sunshine and palm trees, Micha Doggy Wear offers a full line of doggy clothing that conveys the beach lifestyle and our company’s vision; a relaxing day hanging out with friends enjoying life.

The inspiration for creating Micha Doggy Wear came from my dog, Micha. Our paths crossed almost five years ago while I spent a year teaching English in South Korea. I've always loved animals so when an opportunity came up to volunteer at an animal shelter, I took it. It was during that time, that I came across this spunky, little fur ball who happened to be born with a straight leg. I was surprised to learn that this beautiful little dog was born in a shelter and had lived there for two years of her life without ever being adopted. And considering what she's been through, I was amazed at how affectionate and sweet she was towards me. Let's just say that it wasn’t long before I fell in love with her and now I couldn't imagine my life without her.

Here you can see what my dog wearing and sporting good from Micha Doggy Wear:

 I received this product for free from Micha Doggy Wear. I just had to choose the right size for my dog. I did. I got a medium size and it fit just right for my dog. I even tryed it out with walking her and surprising my mom and her friend with it on Icicle. She let me put it on her with no problems. She hat in front of me and let me put it on her.

It was not hard to do and was quite easy and enjoyable. I would do another one for her. I enjoy finding good clothes for Icicle who will let us put clothes on her. This shirt was cuite and stylish and different. I have never seen one like it.

Tender by Shai Amit


Book Title: Tender
Author: Shai Amit
Genres: Romance, Adult
Publisher: Shai Amit
Published Date: April 28, 2013 (272 Pages, Paperback)
Disclaimer: I received this book for free from EbookPro for an honest review
Description: A captivating and original novel that pulls you into the world of nightlife in Amsterdam, New York and Tel Aviv. A world of fascination, dizziness, and deception, brought to light from the point of view of the spectacle’s leading figures. A sidelong view from the central position. The book provides a frank, true, and unique reading experience about a story of introspection, with climbs and crashes, with success and emptiness, and with a desperate search for understanding and love until self-destructiveness is itself destroyed.

This book looks like it a story about a young boy. This young boy goes on a journey of his life. We see how deals with his growing up. We also see how he deals with all kinds of emotions from death, to finding his love of this life.

We get in an depth of how you can destroy your own spirit. We get to learn and get try and get understanding. We also see his success and many crashes. He learn even what love is like or is and though friendships. You could be looking and end up emptying your spirit of that love.

You really can not say it based on one thing. It goes about this with giving you different way as it could be about yourself.  The rating I would give this is a 4.5 moons. The reason for this is that I really did not get what most of it was about except that it might be a romance. I do know it a little more about trying to understand himself and what love is about. Well that's want I think if about. You can destroy yourself be giving all the time and not know if it really love that doing the drive or if it sex driven drive.

This book I would suggest only be for Adults that are 18 and up. There a few words in here that are not for young adults. These words are a bit sexual. I have parents be advised and I will let you decide for your Teenagers if this book is appropriate. To me I advise for this to be for Adults ages from 17 and up.
