More About the Author

I am Preisler Harrington. I am an Anthropologist ( B.A. Anthropology). I also have a Masters degree in U.S. National Security from the American Military University. My Twitter page is http://www.Twitter.com/PKHarrington and my Facebook page is http://www.Facebook.com/PreislerHarrington. You can also reach me by email at preislerharrington@hotmail.com.
I have many causes that are particularly special to me like the environment, modern day slavery, primate conservation and domestic abuse. I live on Long Island and I have a large family. I have 5 children and 2 grand children.

I write because I enjoy it. I have written many work related research projects in my life, but always had the help of colleagues for proof reading. Fiction is new and seeing that I have always had fun telling stories, I decided to put it down on paper.

The best constructive advice I have ever received was from another author and that was to always hire a professional editor to critique your work. I didn't do it when my book was first published and several readers called me on it. The story needed some work. Although I don't agree with less than tactful criticisms, readers can write what they want. I have since headed that advice and the result is a newly edited version. It still may not be to everyone's liking, and that is OK.

I made the mistake of allowing my personal feelings to get hurt with some of these unkind postings and responded in kind on this page. I had the good sense to remove it, but obviously not quickly enough. One of my readers emailed me recently to inform me of a harsh personal response dated nearly 6 months ago to that regrettable post in the reviews. All I can say is; such is life. Please do not feel like you have to respond to this lengthy, ungenerous, oration. Being torn apart publicly via the anonymity of a computer is what is commonplace today. I will just have to grow a thicker skin. Enough said.

The follow up to "2012 Armageddon: Unholy Alliance"; "Analyzing Doomsday", will be out this year. As a non-fiction work I hope you will find it interesting and informative.

Many of the research projects I have done in the past such as: "The Portrayal of Women in Modern Crime Dramas" and "Whose Manning the Gate: A Look at National Security Concerning Our Northern Border" will be the basis for some additional non-fiction books as well as a few fiction stories.

I also have a few projects in the works concerning spiritual matters. I am also a graduate of a Bible College and I am an ordained minister. There may be a few things I can share that will touch people lives in a positive manner, like moving past regrets. I may also write about when I served on a mission to orphanages in Romania, after the fall of former dictator Ceausescu.

Being an active duty military spouse for 20+ years has also given me some insight into living the military nomadic lifestyle. I have one "short" project with tips on how to make the transitions a little easier on our children.

I have a lot to learn, I am a beginner when it comes to self publishing, yet strive to be as professional as possible. This is by no means a get rich quick scheme or even a way to make a living. Since I am retired from all other work endeavors in my life, including the government, sharing these stories and this research is my current dream, I hope you enjoy the ride.

Kindle books on Amazon are easy to download to ANY media device and comparatively inexpensive. It's a great opportunity to grab a story and share the life or imagination of another.

I wanted to read the whole book, but so far it feels like pulling teeth. I tried to make allowances for a self-published book, but ...

Ms. Harrington just about lost me before we started when she introduced SEVENTEEN people and five pets, all in a single two-page paragraph, starting on the third text page! I'm supposed to remember all of the people and pets in this menagerie and their inter-connections, all at once?

Also, she REALLY needs a proof-reader and a good editor. As others have mentioned, the misuse of many homophones, such as "your" and "you're" (which ought to be a no-brainer for a writer), "adds" for ads, "job sights" for job sites (on the web), and others makes for a slightly jarring read.

On the other hand, she found all kinds of ways of NOT saying "said". In the first few pages, characters "replied", "nagged", "stated", "nasally squawked" (!), and "spouted", before the author finally caved in and started to use "said" again. Even then, we have phrases such as "lovingly said", "said lovingly" (for variety, perhaps?) and "said exhaustingly". Or "said jokingly", "jokingly said", and "jokingly interrupted", not to forget "joked".

Punctuation was also somewhat iffy. For example, "I know, said Marshal but soon...." (quotes, and lack thereof, hers). Or "Hey, hey, hey Leonard interrupted, this is a ..." Or multiple lengths of ellipses, with one small paragraph, for example, having 3, 4, and 5 dot versions: "Uh, no...no...MOM! no....they aren't interested....." Jordan stated `as matter of fact.'

In any event, I still want to finish the book, but I'll have to take a rest for a while -- for my headache to recede.

This is probably the worst book I've ever read. Writing was horrendous. The author akwardly skips from one subject to another and one character to another. Hard to follow and filled with a lot of technical gibberish and too many "cutsie" moments that have nothing to do with the story. Not a thriller and not a feel good book, but the author tries miserably to accomplish both with no success. Don't bother to waste your time.

The author starts out by telling us that this is a "reedited" version. I find this book to need a lot more reediting. This could be a good story, but it's not. There are too many plots in too little space to give this story any kind of suspense. Way too much space is given to the antics of Seth, and the oh, so such touching scenes, as the main character and her husband say goodnight to each other. If I could give this book zero stars I would.

The first part of the book introduces what feels like twenty or thirty characters that are all part of a large extended family that is going through the challenges of our current economy - single incomes to support multiple family members, kids at home because college is too expensive, etc etc etc. Frankly it was very boring, none of the characters even sparked my interest. The plot is slow moving and boring (for me) as well. I'm confident someone else is going to absolutely love this book but personally I am sorry I purchased it.

My original review (the author's response and my comments on that are below):

The author doesn't seem to really know how to use commas, semicolons, or periods. Many useful commas are missing. Some periods should be commas; others should be semicolons . . . . Conversations sometimes have quotation marks and sometimes don't, which makes them hard to follow, particularly when they go on for several paragraphs with nothing separating the dialog from other text.

The author also doesn't seem to understand about homophones, using "your" instead of "you're" and "adds" rather than "ads". The author also doesn't know that they are "job sites" and "websites", not "job sights" and "websights". Also uses "Dr." for the word doctor (not in front of a name).

Text is in past tense and then present tense. Some sentences aren't complete; others are 2 sentences stuck together. The plot jumps around a lot which is confusing. For example, the main character and her husband go on survival training for her security work (at the Department of Homeland Security) and then the book just jumps ahead to another month.

I read 20% of the book trying to see if the story was worth the pain of reading it, but I just can't read any more. So far not much has happened and it's just too annoying to read to continue when the plot hasn't hooked me at all.

*****************************
THE BELOW WAS ADDED ON 2/17:

Below I've posted the section of the author's Amazon biography where she comments about the 1-star reviews she's received. Since there are only three at this time (and some of the things she disparages are things I mentioned), this "biography" is at least partially directed at me.

Format: Paperback
How frustrating would it be to actually `know' something that was so critical to our nation's security and our well-being - something so sinister as to totally change; or possibly destroy for that matter, our world as we know it - and yet have it fall on deaf ear? Not just any deaf ear though. The deaf ear of our own Country's Department of Home Land Security - you know the agency that is charged with protecting us?

2012 Armageddon Unholy Alliance is not a how-to book. It is an "uh-oh" book. It is a fictional book with real life implications. Jobless families, multi-family co-habitation, job application rejections - most, if not all of us have been there or in at the least have known of someone who has.

Read how a family `survives' the unimaginable... a terrorist attack on our Country.
