“Why I write” by Rebecca Hubbard

eBook Review Gal Author Guest Post by Rebecca Hubbard.

Writing has been a part of my life since early elementary school. I remember writing my first poem on fat lined school paper. I do not remember what my first poem was about but I recall writing to understand the things I was experiencing in my life. I also wrote about nature and things I wondered about.

If I wasn’t on a horse or reading a book, then I was writing something. Growing up, writing was a salve and a constant companion. I did not start writing for others until I was a therapist.

As a therapist I began using my writing skills to help my young clients cope with traumas and difficult experiences. This started out with me telling them very short stories.

Then I started writing short stories that they could take home. My first story of this nature was called “Sneaky Pee.” My process evolved into creating stories for a larger audience of children.

My passion is writing stories for children who do not have books that reflect the trauma that happened to them. I want all children who have experienced traumatic events to be able to find a book that helps them feel that they are not alone, and gives them hope that they can feel better.

It is an honor to shed light on the problems children face and on their resilient and beautiful spirits. The majority of the stories I have written are to be used in a therapeutic setting. These stories do not have a publisher so they are not available at this time.

While the “The Gift” leans itself to as a therapeutic story, it also stands alone simply as a children’s book. enjoy writing stories that help children grow and learn about themselves and the world around them.

I know I will continue to write these types of stories, as well as the ones that are more specialized. I cannot imagine my life without writing stories for children. It is an honor and a privilege to give a voice to children who feel they do not have one.

Author Robert Germaux Announces Cover Reveal Event for His Upcoming Novel Release

eBook Review Gal Press Release for Hard Court by Robert Germaux Cover Reveal Banner

ROBERT GERMAUX REVEALS THE COVER FOR HIS LATEST DETECTIVE NOVEL, “HARD COURT”

 Author Robert Germaux returns to his detective novel writing roots with his latest suspenseful thriller “Hard Court”. He unveils the much awaited book cover during a Cover Reveal event scheduled for March 7, 2016.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

February 10, 2016 – Robert Germaux is back and better than ever. After a brief venture into romance novel writing with “The Backup Husband”, Bob introduces readers to Jeremy Barnes (JB to his friends) in his new novel, “Hard Court”, which is set to release on April 11, 2016.

JB is a likable character, who can quote Shakespeare as quickly and easily as he can land a solid left jab. He uses his wits and his ever-present sense of humor to wend his way through a cast of characters who range from the ridiculously inept to the ruthlessly lethal. When he’s contacted by Miles Bradshaw, the dot-com billionaire owner of Pittsburgh’s first NBA franchise, JB looks into what appears to be a simple case of harassment of one of the team’s players. But the case soon proves to be anything but simple, eventually involving a local businessman with suspected criminal ties, a major FBI task force, a computer geek in California and a mob boss in Erie.

Coming in at just over 400 eBook pages, “Hard Court” is jam-packed with numerous surprises and plot twists, culminating in a dramatic confrontation that neither JB nor the reader could have predicted.

The Cover Reveal will be shared on March 7, 2016, via several blogging host sites, as well as on the main Cover Reveal page on Susan Barton’s book marketing website, My Book Tour. Ms. Barton has plans for a full book tour in April, after “Hard Court” is released on April 11, 2016.

“Hard Court” will be priced at just 2.99 for Kindle on Amazon.com. Print copies will follow soon after. More information can be found on Robert Germaux’s Amazon Author Page.

Robert Germaux encourages readers to find out more about him and his books on his author website. He’s available for author guest posts and interviews and can be contacted via his author website or via Susan Barton.
