Please help me welcome Hans Lindor to the blog today! Please visit his website and let me know what you think!



My review for I'm Going Where I Belong


1. Please tell readers about your current book.
I am Going Where I Belong is a novel based on fictional characters and events. The story begins in Haiti. 14-year-old Hans Leger is unfamiliar with the hunger, pain, and suffering that plagues the large majority of his island cohorts; however, he is soon introduced to the dark underbelly of life in the impoverished nation when he witnesses the living, breathing effects of poverty firsthand. He also eyewitnesses a fifteen-year-old girl being forced into prostitution. Not long after his chance encounter, Hans' father is brutally gunned down during a violent coup d'etat, and he, his mother, and younger brother are forced to flee to Miami in search of peaceful refuge.
My goal, while writing this book, was to make the story believable. I wanted to give a voice to those who only know poverty and hunger. Also, behind that story there is another story in the book that many readers tend to miss. And the clues are right there in the book.


2. Who or what inspires your writing?
My writing is inspired mostly by those who feel abandoned and forgotten. I am told several times by several journalists that my writing is unique and heavy. I tend to write about what I know. The book is now endorsed by Serving Our World, www.servingourworld.org


3. When did you know you would be a writer?
Well, I didn’t become a writer. I still don’t consider myself as a writer. I consider myself as an essayist or a storyteller. I started writing at a very young age. I used to write poems and sell them to my friends to give to their girlfriends. Writing has always been my only passion. What I like the most about being a storyteller is you are the god and the devil. You create characters and destroy them. You make people laugh and cry. You make people jovial and angry. You bring them joy and fear. You create a world of imagination and make people to visually and mentally live in that imaginary world. Being a writer you are also the prosecutor and killer. It’s fun!


4. How long did it take you to write your first novel?
I am a slow writer. It took me two to three years to write this book. I don’t ever see me writing two books per year. I am challenging myself right now to write a book within a year. I don’t write to get rich. I write to evade the rest of the world. I write to inspire myself to become you or whatever else. I write because this is the only freedom that I have to be my own god and devil.


5. What is the hardest part of writing for you?
The hardest part of writing for me is always to type the first word.


6. Do you have any writing rituals?
No. I can write anytime of the day.



7. Have you written any thing else?
Yes. I wrote two plays and I am currently writing my next novel.


8. Any advice to aspiring writers?
A short one. To write about what they know.


9. Who is your favorite Author?
My favorite author has to be myself, Hans Lindor.


10. What is your favorite book?
My favorite book is the bible. The bible is the greatest book ever written. I also like “For one more day” by Mitch Albom.


11. What are you currently reading?
I am not reading anything right now. I just got done reading a French novel “Je suis un ecrivain Japonais [I am a Japanese writer] ” by my friend, Dany Laferriere, international bestselling author of “How to make love to a negro without getting tired.” I like the way Dany Laferriere and Mitch Albom write, easy and fun to read.


12. How do readers find out more about you?
The best way for anyone or readers to find out more about me, simply by reading my book(s). However, they can easily contact me by going to my website http://www.hanslindor.org or http://www.goodreads.com/hanslindor. In fact, I just launched a reading challenge to anyone who read “I am Going Where I Belong”. The reader has to tell me exactly what really happens to Hans, the main character? He or she could win a $25 gift card. I also encourage your readers to go to www.servingourworld.org to make a small donation.

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.


Since I had recently moved, the first thing to do was to walk around the place and see where a piece of art needed to be placed. Then it was about finding the perfect photo in my collection to hang there. Next, I was onto the website to start building the print.



Once you start, it will seem like there is too many options, but it's so easy to use. You choose the size, and within a few minutes you will be done and waiting for your art to show up.
