    About Author

    1. I grew up reading Beverly Cleary and Madeleine L Engle, loving their skillful way of weaving a story together My own children got me hooked on the Harry Potter series, which in turn inspired me to attempt to write my own books Most of my book ideas come through my vivid and detailed dreams My Scars of Defiance series began as a recurring dream over 17 years ago It took me until 2005 to begin writing the dream down which proved to be a bit difficult, mainly because I never excelled in English class I should have paid better attention A Diamond In My Pocket began as a dream also However, it was a rare event for me because 1 the dream was fantasy and I never dream in fantasy settings, and 2 the dream had a beginning, middle, and end I remember waking up and thinking, Wow I ve got to write that down I spent the better part of four days typing 50,000 words Not much of the original story line has changed throughout the editing process There were parts that didn t fit into the story such as other powers and abilities, but those were worked into the following books in the series My daughter, Luna, helped me immensely in developing the back story of the magical diamond and the possibilities of where the series could go She is an active collaborator with The Unaltered seriesWhen reading books, I love the unexpected twist, the Snape characters who are not what you think, and good chemistry between the sexes I try to incorporate these into my books, mainly because I write what I like to read.My husband is very supportive of my writing When I finally let him read my rough draft of The Dictator s Daughter, the first book I wrote , he was floored He told me he had to keep reminding himself his wife wrote the book He also began to wonder, Who is this woman I m married to Some tidbits about myself I married my husband in 1989 We have three daughters Over the last 20 years I ve worked the craft fair circuits selling hand painted wall hangings, been a Pampered Chef consultant demonstrated over 250 kitchen shows and trade shows, I operated my own catering business specializing in wedding receptions and Christmas parties, I ran a State licensed home daycare for five years gray hair from that one , worked a short stint at a juvenile detention center, another short stint at a grocery store bakery 4am shifts are for the birds , worked in a family practice medical office as a file clerk, and operated a jewelry business buying from bidz and selling on ebay I started working part time at my local Walgreens in 2015 to support my writing habit The Unaltered series is currently being optioned for film and television super exciting and the series is being professionally edited, getting ready for print There will be ten books in the series.Thanks for reading

    1. I got this book because it was free on my kindle, so I figured Why not Obviously, it being free, I didn t have very big expectations for itThe book was interesting enough for me to finish it, I ll say that much, but it just felt like there were things missing The main character, Calli, understands and excepts this new world she has been thrown into WAY too fast, she knows and understands things that she has never been told and often better than everyone else in the book that has been living in t [...]


    2. I really need to try being nicer in my reviews But books like these really test my ability to do so I really don t much like this book.But it s than that I started to like it At the beginning I was interested in what was going on That was until the character got every super power ever invented The problem with amassing so much powers in one person human or not they start becoming unreal Towards the end of this book, the main character had no flaw and could make no mistakes She saw and knew ever [...]


    3. This book is a quick read and packed with adventure However, the main character isn t that believable as a teenager, which really hurts with the whole willing suspension of disbelief philosophy I noticed that many of the characters didn t react within the bell curve of normal in this novel, and the overreactions took me out of the story quite a bit I would have enjoyed this book a lot if the characters reactions had been believable Instead, they all seemed bipolar half of the time Calli, the ma [...]


    4. This novel is the perfect example of tell, don t show I was told what people were thinking, I was told what people were doing I never felt connected to the characters or their experiences The plot had moments of promise, but the author s inability to make me feel it kept me distanced.And please, please find someone to edit for you At one point, the main character mauls over her thoughts Mauls Really How about mauling the English language It s mull over one s thoughts Although I have to say, it d [...]



    5. I as well downloaded this book for its free status I have done this so many times that when i search through my kindle list i forget what the stories are about since they have sat there for so long while reading other books that have piqued my interest So i finally ran out of reading material I came across this title again and figured its time to give it a try so i go into it thinking based on the title not remembering what this story is about that its probably some romance noveli was pleasantly [...]


    6. I wasn t too fond of this book I found the plot engaging, but the main character was very much a Mary Sue She winds up view spoiler going from being perceived as the weakest to being leader and worshiped in a few short days on her first mission because she has all the mutations known to exist hide spoiler , which I found quite irritating The plot was what saved this from a one star review it was pretty engaging, although it did drag a bit in the middle.


    7. I love finding books that are nothing like what I expect This book surprised meg time It s such a unique premise, nothing at all like other YA novels out there The author did an amazing job of setting it up, lots of intrigue and action I liked the main character very much I m looking forward to reading the sequel, probably one of the biggest compliments out there


    8. Eh ten year old son likes it But he s in love with all the Goosebumps books too So I ll give it two stars for him But as an adult way The protagonist is okay with this strange new world of hers way too fast and the proverbial asshole hot guy falls for her way too fast Not for me but hand it off to your tween They may like it.


    9. This is another book about teenage superheroes but with a new approach From the first sentence, I was captivated The book is pure fantasy, pure fun, and has a light touch of romance.


    10. Supernaturals, super powers, magical diamonds, well that is just a piece of all that happens This book jumps right into the action and takes off running There are many things in this book that although it makes for good reading just doesn t make sense It is a good read and with this being a new writer to me I plan on trying but this author wants you to have an open mind for some of the things she does and just flow with it In paranormal books that isn t really a stretch normally but there s ple [...]


    11. Interesting but not believable This book has many far fetched ideas and scenarios, but the story line was interesting enough for me to finish it There are a few curse words towards the end of the book, but other than that it s a pretty clean read If you re bored and have nothing else to read, this will fill the void, but there s nothing remarkable or compelling here.


    12. When I began reading this book, I didn t know what to expect As the story unfolded, I became intrigued by the interplay of the characters I went from not being overly interested to becoming invested in their growth and responses to the events that were happening I was happy to read that their story continues.


    13. Slow slow to start but a promising beginningAlthough I wasn t fully engaged at the beginning the tension built to a suspenseful climax There could have been greater depth of character and I wasn t convinced by the team s about face when Callie discovered her powers I didn t understand why she was so happy about this as it was simply because power impressed them.




    14. This review was originally on my blog at rebeccaelton.Official rating is 2.5 stars.In reviewing all of these free, young adult books, I think I m really carrying out a quest to find the ultimate self published, young adult novel that is, I mean, one that lives up exactly to the expectations I have when reading a traditionally published manuscript.A Diamond In My Pocket went a lot further than a lot of books of that description have gone However, without revealing too much, it hasn t quite got to [...]


    15. How cool to discover an indie writer I had never read an indie author before and I am so sold after this great read that I plan on exploring many I bought this book because it was only 99 cents and because the story looked intriguing I do enjoy YA fiction because the stories are often unique and because they are usually stories I wouldn t mind sharing with my children because the language and subject matter isn t the kind of thing that would embarrass me if someone was reading over my shoulder [...]
