The Silence of the Media Lambs

Newspapers defy courts when they think it is right and proper journalism to do so. Clearly, in Ireland today, mere trifles such as democracy and the right of parliamentarians to speak truth to power, those are not worth it.  Our media have, shamefully,…

Check out my blog, www.prelovedbooksblog.com - if you're interested, send me on the ebook to review.
 
I'm looking for reviewers for my new romance, Wayward Love. If you're interested I can provide an ebook copy for anyone willing to post their review on: Goodreads and Amazon. 

Description: 
Does age matter? How about race? When you think about these subjects, does the person you love come to mind? Do you find yourself trying to justify the feelings you have for someone that may not fit the ordinary couple standards? Should anyone have to give a reason for why, when that special person enters the room everything else ceases to exist? These questions have plagued Tia Grant, Junior Editor-in-Chief of her local newspaper and short story romance writer. As she enters into an interracial relationship with Maxwell Grant, a man 41 years her senior, society, family, and friend's instinctive curiosity keeps Tia questioning if she and Max are really meant to be.
