More About the Author

"A Book to Die For" is not only Janice Daugharty's first mystery, but her first time working with a co-author--her Math and Science-oriented daughter, Angela Nix. "It's an online novel in every way," Daugharty says. She and Angela, who lives in Florida, swapped ideas and information by way of email over the past summer; Angela often edited the work-in-progress on her Kindle Fire while sitting on her cabin cruiser. Then thanks to Amazon they easily launched the ebook for sale through the Kindle Store. "Digital formatting used to make me cringe," says Daugharty; "it was like track-switching at full tilt from right to left sides of the brain. Now, you just up-load and submit--Amazon's program even spell-checks." Final job for the weary authors: the book cover. Yes, Kindle's Cover Creator program likewise took care of that. They both say the creation of the joint mystery made for a long, hot summer, in more ways than the weather.

Janice Daugharty is the author of 9 published novels and 2 story collections. She is writer in residence at Abraham Baldwin Agriculture College, in Tifton, Georgia

Angela Nix attended Valdosta State University where she received her B.S. degree in Biology. She currently works for the Department of Business and Professional Regulations for the State of Florida.

It's Okay To Cry was an OK book. The author had a good idea, and a good start to a story, however they did not go any farther with it than what probably could've been a prologue. From the description I thought the other "evil younger sister" would have been a younger teenager, and much more teenager acting. The author didn't go quite as far as I would've liked into the story, but it is deffinitely a good idea! I'd like to see more added, such as chapters and a full book. Very short to this point, but interesting enough to make you want to read more.

This story is a good character study rich with tension. However, I had trouble determining the time setting. Ialso had trouble picturing Bethanne and figuring her age and Holly's. But i do appreciate the author making this story available for free. She is a talented writer. The story needs some editing. Looks like the conversion to HTML resulted in problems with paragraphing and spacing.

This is a 9-page short story by Janice Daugharty that is full of contrasts between two sisters and the difficult challenge that the older Bethann has in taking her so far ne'er do well sister, Holly, back to Florida with her after the grandmother who was raising Holly has passed away. The grandmother didn't have a lot of success with Holly and Bethann is in college in Miami, Florida, where she is taking Holly, but she sees her sister as "nineteen, but an adolescent mess..." (Loc 2)

At the funeral, Bethann has genuine tears for her grandmother, but Holly remains dry-eyed, "ugly, greedy, mean." (Loc. 13) The mother of the two girls hanged herself in jail, and their father died from drinking, so a lot of Holly's problems are understandable. Bethann heads to her car and is hoping in the back of her mind that Holly's shadow isn't following, but the same shadow that has always followed Bethann is lumbering along behind, casting that of the two-hundred pound sister behind Bethann.

Holly was pregnant at fifteen, and Bethann isn't sure she can even read. Bethann doesn't know what kind of job Holly can hold down, but hold down a job she must because Bethann cannot support her by herself. Holly needs to learn to express her feelings and to gain some self-esteem and her sister is hoping to help her to do that.

This is an excellently written short story by a master of writing. Characters are genuine and whether you like them or not, you will feel something for them, and in the end, it really is okay to cry.

THE AUTHOR HAD A GOOD IDEA BUT WAS NOT ABLE TO COMMUNICATE IT VERY WELL. THE WRITING STYLE CONTAINED ERRORS AND SIMPLY DID NOT FLOW EASILY. FOR THE DEPTH OF THE AUTHOR'S IDEA, THE LENGTH OF THE NOVELLA WAS ENTIRELY TOO SHORT.

This is only a 15-page book, insanely boring, with no real plot, and a really sad ending. I would not recommend it. The other reviews led me astray and made me believe this was a better book than it really was.

Okay idea but needs a lot of work. Deleted it as it is not worth the space. Was also made to think it was a good book by a few of the reviews. Glad this was free!
