WHAT MAKES OR BREAKS A RELATIONSHIP? - Relationship: Notes on Love, Mutual Respect, Boundaries, Marriage, and Divorce by Bill Benitez


 

When I decided to write this book on relationship, my wife Barbara was surprised and cautioned me by saying that she would not dare write such a book because it was such a varied topic with so many nuances. That scared me because she is certainly more qualified to write about relationship than I am. I hesitated for a while.

Most of my writing had been on housing, business, woodworking, even publishing, but nothing on relationship. It's an expansive topic and I wasn't sure if my information would be of real value. I considered that all my books are based on firsthand experience and realized that even though I'm not an expert, I have a lifetime of experience in relationship. Based on that I felt able to contribute something helpful to some readers and I feel good about this book.



I found this book to be such an informative and important read offering tips for all types. I couldn't agree with the author more about never ever taking your partner for granted and that love means ALWAYS saying you're sorry-- actually as quickly, whole-heartedly and as often as needed. I'd recommend Bill's book to add zest to an already good relationship or to help you create the one you long for.

Denise Fleck

Oftentimes clear, true insight comes from someone not "trained" or "educated" in a particular field of thought. This book represents one of those times. The subject of "relationships" is so complicated few outside the legal/ counseling/mental health arenas even attempt to address it for fear of being ignored, misunderstood or, worse yet, laughed at.

The author's conversational style makes his book about the subject quite easy to read / understand and as one absorbs his meaning . . . believable. It rings so true that as I was reading, I kept wanting to cut out paragraphs to put on my computer, refrigerator and bathroom mirror!

Read this book. You will be glad you found it. In fact, you will probably send a copy to your child . . . I did!

MEET THE TALENTED BILL BENITEZ - AWARD-WINNING AUTHOR, PUBLISHER, AND ALL AROUND GREAT GUY.

When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer?

I worked in the City of Tampa housing program and decided that some housing employees could use a how-to book. I wrote a book on housing rehabilitation, and the National Association of Housing and Redevelopment Officials published it. That was the first of many how-to books related to housing. They aren’t listed with my more recent books since it was so long ago.

 

How long does it take you to write a book?

It depends on the book. Most of the how-to books take one to three months since they relate directly to my personal experience and I have all the information on hand. The relationship book took much longer because it’s a complicated subject, and I was not as confident as I would be on how-to topics.

 

What is your work schedule like when you're writing?

It’s always flexible. I usually have several things going at once, so I have to stop writing to take care of other things. I don’t experience difficulty stopping and starting my writing.

 

What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?

Probably my ability to stop and start writing at any time.


How do your books get published?

Except for my first book published by NAHRO, I publish all my books.

 

Where do you get your information or ideas for your books?

The information for all my woodworking and handyman books comes from my twenty-five years of experience in the woodworking and homebuilding and remodeling business. The material for my relationship book also came from personal experience in intimate relationships.


When did you write your first book, and how old were you?

I wrote my first book in 1976 when I was 37 years old. Housing Rehabilitation: A Guide For Municipal Programs and NAHRO published it.


What do you like to do when you're not writing?

I like to read, go on walks and sometimes work in my shop repairing or building something.


What does your family think of your writing?

Other than my wife, Barbara, most family members express no interest in my writing.


What was one of the most surprising things you learned in creating your books?

I learned many things, but the two most surprising were how I could share my knowledge with others concisely and how difficult it is to sell books.


How many books have you written? Which is your favorite?

I’ve written ten books during the past ten years and another eight during the seventies. I guess my favorite is Relationship because it is so different from my others.

 

Do you have any suggestions to help me become a better writer? If so, what are they?

Read a lot. Learn all you can about writing—study grammar. Rewrite, rewrite, and rewrite. Edit, edit, and edit. Have people whose writing skills you respect read your work and comment and then listen.


Do you hear from your readers much? What kinds of things do they say?

Not as much as I would like. I do get good comments from my woodworking and handyman books. Mostly they’re comments about how the information was helpful and profitable. I got surprisingly good remarks from my relationship book.


Do you like to create books for adults?

All my books are for adults, and I prefer to write for them.


What do you think makes a good story?

Since all my work is non-fiction, there’s not much attention to a good story. However, in my woodworking and handyman business books, I do share some stories from life experiences.

 

As a child, what did you want to do when you grew up?

I don’t remember. I started working construction with my dad at age 12, and he was a taskmaster. My goal then was to leave his business. I managed to do that at age 22 by going into business for myself. In my 30’s, I used my construction experience to get an excellent job with the government for several years and then began writing books and a newsletter about my experience. I also did consulting for local governments across the country.

 

Any books in the works?

I’m considering a couple of rewrites to modernize the topics but no new books at this time. I spend almost all my time now publishing books for other authors. Since 2008 I’ve published about 100 books with my company Positive Imaging, LLC, and am changing that to Mikael Publishing.

 

What are your plans for the future?

I plan to grow my publishing business, Mikael Publishing. We provide personalized publishing services to authors in all genres.

NATALIE FISHER COMMITTED SUICIDE AFTER AN AUTHOR STOLE HER WORK AND PUBLISHED IT AS HER OWN - TWO YEARS LATER, HER BEST FRIEND TERRI IS FOUND DEAD - ARE THEY CONNECTED? DEAD TO WRITES - BOOK 7 OF THE LAURA & GERRY MYSTERY SERIES BY KAREN VAUGHAN


 
Natalie Fisher committed suicide after an author stole her work and published it as her own. Two years later, her best friend Terri is found dead in her hotel room. Are the two deaths connected? Laura Fitz and Detective Gibbons are on the case to trap a ruthless author trying to get away with murder!

Whether you have been following the Laura & Gerry Mystery series, or you are jumping into book seven in the series like myself, you will enjoy the read.

Sit back in your favorite beach chair, relax with lemonade in hand, and follow Laura Fitz and Detective Gibbons as they try to unravel the mystery of why Terri Carter is the second author to die. Best not to drink wine and eat dark chocolate while reading this very active, short, easy to read, suspenseful mystery. Keep reading and you will learn why….

Chapter one opens in November 2015 with Natalie Fisher frantically searching for her flash drive which holds her finished manuscript. If data has ever gone missing on your PC, you can relate to her dilemma. For an author who has just invested their life into a manuscript, traumatic is an understatement. This is the beginning of more than one mystery that will keep you turning the page. Question remains, is theft of a manuscript worth committing suicide over?

With a full cast of well-developed characters that could live in a home town near you, each with their part to play in this believable story line that could end up on the TV show ID Discovery. Laura’s eccentric neighbor Myrna might hold an important key in the case. Human emotions run deep surrounding envy, thief, suicide, sabotage, revenge and possible plausible deniability.

I invite you to join Detective Gibbons at the Convention Centre for the Writers' Symposium. He is there to talk to the authors and follow through on some alibis. This will be a challenge as the authors are still in shock over “Such a brilliant candle in the literary world snuffed way too soon!”

I, Theodocia Mclean, endorse Dead To Writes (Laura & Gerry Mystery Book 7) by Karen Vaughan. I invite you the pick up the whole Laura & Gerry Mystery series for you reading enjoyment. I purchased this book in Kindle. This review was completed on June 23, 2018.


AN ENGAGING, SEDUCTIVE, AND SUSPENSE FILLED LOOK AT HIGH STAKES BURGLARY & FAMILY SECRETS - DIAMONDS AND LIES BY USA TODAY and AMAZON BESTSELLING AUTHOR INGE-LISE GOSS


 

Sparkling rocks, family secrets, and seductive lies

Mia’s advertising career masks a side job in the family business―the business is thievery and the competition kills. Partnering with her brother, Andy, Mia is drawn into a short timeline to plan a diamond heist to make good on Andy’s double-cross of the crime boss who hired him for the prior job.

A Heist That Her Brother’s Life Depends On

Openly teasing the mark, Mia plays with the jeweler’s attraction to her, insinuating herself into his life, gaining his confidence. When Andy’s past threatens them both, Mia abandons the heist and disappears. The mark, under Mia’s spell, hides and protects her from danger. They are both in peril as her brother’s stalker closes in on them. Alternating between ecstasy and fear, she has to make a fateful decision.

Is she placing her trust in the wrong man? Can a relationship built on lies become real?

THE PAST & THE PRESENT COLLIDE, WHILE SHADOWS AND SECRETS ABOUND IN SHADOW'S WAY BY BARBARA FRANCES


 

Her timing was perfect. As she rounded the corner, daily Mass had ended, and the Archbishop was standing outside the ornately carved doors of St. Paul’s Cathedral.

His followers were tiered below him on the steps. He turned and allowed his eyes to trace the contours of her body and she felt the thrill of power. A sheer white muslin shift clung to her black swim suit, still wet from morning exercise at the community pool. Despite the heat and the humidity from the Gulf of Mexico, she strolled by as if it were a cool spring day in Vermont.

 

Elaine Chauvier was a stately woman, aware of her long legs and enticing figure. Some said she was a snob and she would have agreed with them. After all, she was from aristocracy. Her great grandfather and General Robert E. Lee had been close friends, and her family had owned sections of plantation land and nearly a hundred slaves. No one could give this woman a passing glance without being momentarily transfixed. Soft black hair, always a bit ruffled to give a false impression of casualness, framed a face of classic perfection. Piercing dark eyes conveyed the superiority she felt over everyone.

 

Archbishop Andre Figurant gave hardly a thought to the man who knelt to kiss his ring or the mother holding up her baby for a blessing. His focus was across the street, beyond the wrought-iron fence surrounding the Cathedral’s property. The gliding presence hypnotized as well as beguiled him.


Fans of Agatha Christie and her enormous ensemble casts will find many enjoyable parallels in the work and structure of author Barbara Frances. I particularly enjoyed the setting for this tale, playing on the traditional tropes of the Southern gothic genre, but also adding many flairs and twists from ghost stories, fables and psychological horror works. Both the characters and plot are multi-faceted, giving readers a lot to follow, but also a lot to gain from paying close attention to each clue and motivation. The mystery itself sometimes takes a back seat when the (often literal) ghosts and shadows take over, playing with the characters’ sensibilities and forcing them to ask much deeper questions of themselves and others. What results is an emotive but also thoughtful, spooky mystery novel. I would highly recommend Shadow’s Way to mystery and gothic fiction fans looking for something new, unique and really well crafted.



Ms. Francis’ novel Shadow’s Way, had me enthralled from page one, it kept me reading until so late into the night that I used a flashlight in order not to wake my husband.

I’ve always enjoyed reading gothic tales, but this one went beyond most that I had read. The synopsis was correct, past and present mingled and left me on the edge of my seat. Was G – G – Daddy a real paranormal experience or a figment of Elaine Chauvier’s imagination, which got worse as she sunk deeper into insanity?

I loved the various characters that Ms. Francis brought into play as needed to heighten the story. They were well rounded and interconnected in ways that one has to keep reading to get the full picture.




SHADOW'S WAY

A CLEVER STORY - WITH LOTS OF CHARACTER AND ROMANCE - PASS ME THOSE BINOCULARS! BY BRIDGITTE LESLEY


 

If Wade had to sit in the kitchen with his binoculars all day long just to get a glimpse of Summer, he would.

 

Wade rented his house to the first person who responded to his advertisement. With her lush green lawn and flowers that bloomed, everything his tenant did got under his skin. At first, he was oblivious about who she was.

Summer knew who he was. But she kept her distance and a low profile. Not being too sure of his feelings for her.

Waiting and watching, soon realizing who she was, he was biding his time to make his move.


Pass Me Those Binoculars is a clever story with lots of dialogue and character interaction. The book cover is beautifully designed. Great work! Five stars!

A SOUTHERN GOTHIC MYSTERY - IS IT SPIRITS OR INSANITY - SHADOWS WAY BY BARBARA FRANCES


 

Archbishop Figurant gazed down the extended maple table, luminous from layer upon layer of bee’s wax. Soon they would be arriving. It was going to be a hard hitting but necessary meeting, long overdue. Abandoning protocol, he would be going against the Church’s hierarchy to expose a long-lived charade of denial and hypocrisy. No longer was he going to ram his head up his self-righteous ass. He was going to act.

 

Lanita entered the room with a large tray of chicken sandwiches and fruit pastries. “Oh, ‘cuse me, your Excellency. I didn’t know you were already here. I’ll be out of your way in no time.” Her words hummed with the rhythmic cadence of a Caribbean island. Neat as a pin in a freshly starched uniform and hair tucked away in a plain white turban, she slipped from point to point, smooth and efficient.

 

“You’re fine, Lanita. I’m trying to get my thoughts in order. You’d best put out some ashtrays. I anticipate Monsignors Flannigan and Murphy will burn up a field of tobacco when they hear what I’ve got to say.” She laughed out loud. “Maybe I should put out the whiskey, too, yes?

 

“No, they’ll have to survive on coffee or water today.” He smiled at her. “Be good for them.”

 

He and Lanita had a comfortable relationship. She had been his housekeeper for six years. He knew some of her secrets and she knew some of his. Late afternoons he often watched her from the upstairs window as she rode her bicycle home, hair fanning out in an Afro halo and a colorful skirt billowing in the wind.

Shadow’s Way is a work of gothic intrigue and Southern mystery penned by author Barbara Frances. In this sweeping narrative of interpersonal drama, intended for mature readers, we meet Elaine Chauvier at the novel’s titular home, where she runs a bed and breakfast. Elaine is keen to hang on to Shadow’s Way, so when her half-sister Ophelia and cousin Rudy show up to visit, trouble ensues. Combining this with a mysterious Archbishop, his housekeeper and obscure identical twin, the novel progresses swiftly into a creepy and intriguing mystery as a massive hurricane approaches the Gulf Coast. A superbly haunted time awaits its readers.

I think Karen Vaughan must have fun every time she sits down to write a story,Thankfully the humor and fun come through n her books and readers get a delightful read that also adds in murder, mystery and suspense. The novels with Laura and Gerry are a series that can also be read as stand alone books, I highly recommend all of them because readers will love the characters the author has created. In this story, murder and mystery connect to mob ties and the adventure is on. For me, I loved that a neighbor of Laura and Gerry's and a tenant in the building they manage is the one caught up in murder. Through the books, I have found, Stella is the character you love to hate. Grabbing a book by this author always guarantees a good read, a fun story and a murderous adventure

Left for Dead by Karen Vaughan, is witty and intelligently told mystery story. It’s the 6th in the Laura and Gerry mysteries series and a delightfully penned book.

It seems even pregnancy will not stop Laura Fitz from being a corpse magnet, as she stumbles yet again onto another dead body. While Laura is talking to the police, she receives a phone call from hubby. Apparently, Laura’s gift or curse for discovering the dead and becoming embroiled in the nasty affairs of the murder has rubbed off on to Gerry, for he has found his cousin near death.

The Fitz’s have once again become entangled in murder, mayhem, the lives of others along with the danger it entails. But, through it, all Laura remains her witty self. Gerry doesn’t fair as well as his love for Laura and their coming baby, upset his judgement at times. After all, it is difficult to be objective when the life of one's wife is on the line.

Ms. Vaughan has another terrific read in Left for Dead. I enjoyed this book enormously and highly recommend it to everyone.

To See the Sights, by prolific author Bridgette Lesley, is a romance, but, as with all her stories, it is a perfectly credible one. To See the Sights is not in the Barbara Cartland style, but set among ordinary working people in an indeterminate country.

Tina Hammond is about to take four weeks off work, her first holiday in years and whilst pondering that almost intimidating thought and reading the local paper, she comes across an advert from a single Dad, looking for someone to take care of his girls, ten and fifteen, for three weeks. Not really relishing the thought of trying to enjoy herself on her own in the locality, which she has wanted to explore better for a long time, she rings the number.

However, Phillip Henderson, the Dad, is rather rushed off his feet, and so, having scheduled in several probable babysitters, he brushes her off.

However, when all the applicants turn out to be unsuitable, he calls Tina back and she gets the job. There follows a hectic three weeks, during which Tina and the girls, and later other members of both families, visit all the local attractions, and love is in the air.

To See the Sights is a heart-warming romance that will have aficionados of the genre gasping in delight. It is a very pleasurable read.

IS GREAT GRANDDADDY REAL OR A FIGMENT OF ELAINE'S INSANE MIND? SHADOW'S WAY - A SOUTHERN GOTHIC MYSTERY - BY BARBARA FRANCES


 
Prepare to be spellbound. Barbara Frances' long-awaited third novel, “Shadow's Way,” takes you to the coastal, deep South, where the past and the present mingle in a gothic tale of insanity, murder, and sexual intrigue.

You'll meet the beautiful Elaine Chauvier, former actress and proprietor of Shadow's Way, her family's antebellum home; the esteemed Archbishop Andre Figurant and his fallen identical twin, Bastien; newly arrived Ophelia and Rudy, here to explore their Chauvier roots and their ties to Shadow's Way; and the mysterious Madame Claudine. Under a veneer of piety and graciousness, i.e., the questions: What is good? What is evil? What is reality?


A spell weaver, Shadow's Way, kept me in suspense, which, as a lover of good mysteries is not easy for an author to do. I often guess an ending before I hit the middle. As in her last book, Like I Used to Dance, Ms. Frances' characters are delicious portrayals, richly textured, gradually revealing their good and evil humanity, as her hauntingly realistic settings and surprising story unfolds.  To say more might give away the best of her new book. I have thoroughly enjoyed both of her novels and highly recommend them.
Sherry Haskin
Two of the historic forces that still shape American culture, ante-bellum southern ideology and the catholic church, are brought into fascinating and disturbing juxtaposition in this novel. Barbara Frances lays bare traditions that while often enough exposed as decadent in some measure, still retain strong elements of venerability through the usual telling of their stories. Not here. Nothing is embellished or disguised. At its core, like a Russell Lee camera lens, this work shows us marginalized people seeking growth and redemption without filters or touch-up. With all their blemishes, in their stumbling nakedness they emerge as utterly noble.
