~ Coming Unglued: A Mother’s Journey into Hell is a story of hope and courage in the face of adversity. It reveals the good, the bad and the ugly parts of relationships. The characters are strong and lifelike; you might see your own reflection in parts of the story.~

Kelly had everything a young woman could hope for: an admirable boyfriend, a strong family unit and determination to succeed.

A few moments shattered everything. En route to a friend’s house, Kelly was raped. Weeks later, she is horrified when she learns the result of her pregnancy test. Debating the best course of action, she’s forced to face her greatest fear as she explores long held desires of her heart and soul.

When life seemed to have settled into a normal routine, a surprise encounter with her rapist changes her life forever. After apologizing, he strives to reconcile the past and win Kelly’s heart.

Tragedy strikes. Hearts are broken. Lives are shattered. In attempting to move forward, Kelly makes a decision which affects everyone who knows and loves her – a decision which begins her decent into a worse hell than she’d known.

Even though Kelly’s story is considered to be fiction, it’s inspired by true events. It’s a situation many women – who have lost all hope, faith and love – find themselves in all too often.

Fictional Humor – Riotous Retirement

Riotous RetirementRiotous Retirement
By Brian Robertson and Ron Smallwood
ISBN: 978-1500158668
ASIN: B00K5JG5F0
Published: June 2014
Pages: 164
Genre: Fictional Humor
Formats Available For Review: print, pdf, epub, ebook, modi, kindle

Want to know what life is really like in a retirement village or community? This book is a collection of fifteen short funny stories each illustrating some aspect of human interaction at the imaginary Burnside Retirement Village. If you thought a Retirement Village or a Retirement Community is where people go to rest, socialise and appreciate peace and quiet, you would be dead WRONG! It s where over 50 year olds go who are bored, who enjoy a good fight, hate authority, argue like hell, question every rule and regulation, love to interfere in the lives of others and, of course, it is where those who write comedy involving such people live! Those who like the quiet life exist only in the background of this book. It is the alternative group who fill these pages. They are the people who make life interesting, who say what they truly believe, and don t give a hoot about what anyone thinks.

Brenda desperately wants to move to a retirement village lifestyle but husband Gabriel is adamant he is staying put. Brenda hatches a bold plan.

Gabriel bossed others about in a former life and needs to be the centre of attention at Burnside but he is continually frustrated!

Helga is employed by the village operators but must also heed the wishes and interests of the residents, all the while juggling everything to fulfill her own ambition.

Alex is the caretaker who does his level best to satisfy everyone. He never succeeds! Duncan, an old bushie, is sweet on Susan. He asks her out but she will only agree if he lets her drive his new muscle car, a 1969 Chevrolet Camaro.

Helga has laid down the rules pertaining to garden gnomes. A group of villagers rebel and plan some fun. Are the gnomes breeding?

The environmental officer is coming to inspect the village. Helga is terrified he finds out that a group of ladies (lately equipped with iPads) have been killing protected species of snake, photographing them, and posting on Facebook.

You will also read about women who drive fast cars and fast scooters, men who tell great tales, some who are arch plotters and schemers and many who don t know what the hell they are doing.

They all exist together in the chaos that is Burnside Retirement Village. Differences of opinion between residents are always blown up out of all proportion, if not by the participants, then certainly by the time the stories have been told a few times. The authors have, shamelessly, taken advantage of each and every such situation!

This book documents and celebrates the odd, the bizarre, the eccentric and the downright peculiarity of over 55 year olds who are always convinced that everyone else is wrong. Stories in this book are much closer to the reality of retirement community living than all the sales leaflets and brochures promoting this lifestyle honest. And you never know you might also meet your neighbours in these pages!
