More About the Author

Living in the dead center of California, R.M. Gilmore writes mystery thrillers with a supernatural twist.
Drawing from people and places in her life, she brings us the irreverent character Dylan Hart, the Dylan Hart Odyssey of the Occult series, and sweet Lynnie Russell, the Lynnie Russell Trilogy.
Gilmore has contributed to numerous anthologies, as well as, short story and stand-alone works-in-progress.

Gilmore also creates original artworks in various mediums including paint and clay. Her home is filled with eclectic music memorabilia, horror flicks, and droves of complete Lego sets. R.M. shares a home with her husband, kids, and more than thirty animals including a Labrador, frilled dragon, and gargoyle geckos.

When she's not insane with writing, household junk, and animal care, she loves to watch movies, digs detective shows, and imbibes in alcohol more than one person should.

R.M. Gilmore lives to laugh and will likely die laughing.

I'm going to keep this short and to the point. It was EXCELLENT. Becoming had a few moments where I said, "WTF?" --and that's a good thing. I love it when a book surprises me. This book was original and witty. It not only had some paranormal elements to it, but some horror elements as well. I am reluctant to tell you more because I don't want to ruin it for you. Sorry, just read it yourself! Hahaha! It was a quick read and when the ride was over and I had read the last page, my only thought was 'NOOOOOO! Give me more!!!' I can't wait to read Lynnie's next installment!.

Great read! The story is unique. When I started reading I thought it was going to be another werewolf series. I was pleasantly surprised to find that this series is going to be something that I haven't read before. Lynnie is a great character. I loved her cute southern accent and her sassiness. I loved that R.M. Gilmore used typical southern sayings, being from the south myself, I found it very believable and I actually laughed a couple times I came something lynnie said that I have said myself.

This book flowed easily and I found that I was at the end in no time. I wanted to keep reading to find out what happens now when we have some questions answered. I feel like the author left me hanging right when it was getting good! Damn, Guess I have to wait for next book to come out.

Overall, it's a great start to the series, great character development, and a good build up to the second book (the good stuff). If you want to read something new and refreshing I would recommend this series because I know it will be great.

I'm really starting to love novellas. Seriously, it's almost instant satisfaction. It doesn't take too long to reach the end and have that lovely glowy feeling you get from completing a really good read. And it's thanks to such wonderful authors, like RM Gilmore, who have mastered the art of writing a short story (107 pages) in such a manner that makes it feel as though you've read a novel.

What you will find when you pick up Becoming, which I strongly recommend that you do, is a story that is original, superbly crafted and developed, in addition to creating the potential for a phenomenal paranormal series. This book is truly original. No vamps, no weres, rather something much more unusual, that it makes the story so very refreshing.

The pace was incredibly fast. A real page turner! Yes, I know that sounds ridiculously cliché, and when I read that in reviews, my more cynical side mutters in my ear - yeah right, were you struggling to write anything original - but honestly, Becoming was so very easy, fast, and kept me completely absorbed. Please don't misunderstand, the description `easy' is intended to be wholly positive.

I really enjoyed Lynnie's character, and could easily hear her voice in my head with her superb twang. She's a believable character, with very interesting, and understandable reactions to the situations that she finds herself in. What you will also find in Becoming is RM Gilmore's lovely humour which if you have read The Scene, you will be relieved to discover is evident in this book.

An excellent novella.

I had no idea what I was getting myself into from the start of Becoming, so this is one of the hardest reviews I've ever had write. It's not because Becoming wasn't enjoyable, necessarily, but because of the way Becoming is written. The story doesn't tell itself, and that's, in a way, very new to me. I've read many novels where the character is speaking to the reader, but for the most part, I've never enjoyed them. Though, R.M.'s writing is very hard to explain, it's different, and yet it's able to captivate you and really reel you in to a good story. I appreciate that factor.

Sharlene's story is very mystifying and heartfelt. I really feel as if R.M.'s done her character justice. I love the plot and all its ideas, they are very unique, yet everything still has that YA trait that keeps us all a bit closer to home. I also really liked how the story unfolded. You really had no idea who Sharlene is in the beginning, but then a quarter way through the book you feel as if you've known her for forever--she easily becomes a favorite character. My only complaint is that R.M. had such good additions to the plot that I was so happy to unravel and discover and explore, but some thing's just didn't smooth over with me. I could have been because of my high hopes, but I felt like scenes could have been executed better. This, though, didn't take away from the story in the least bit, this is just my opinion. I believe Becoming is a very fascinating, supernatural story that will have people raging for a long while.

Becoming is a short read revolving around a young woman in a small Arkansas town, complete with that Southern twang! Its a great start to a new trilogy by R. M. Gilmore with a loveable main character who gets thrown into a world she never imagined! With each page, you follow along with Lynnie as she discovers who she is and what she is becoming. There are so many good lines that suck you in, its hard to put down!

Becoming has a great storyline with strong characters, mystery and a touch of 'woo-woo' that will hook you in! My biggest complaint? Too short! I wanted more!

The biggest mystery? How did the author get all that story into so few pages????
