Category: Q is for…


Day 17 of the April 2013 AtoZ Challenge… enjoy…

I may have forgotten to mention my theme – it is fractals, fractal art, everything fractal up to and including my new book Fractal Dreams! Have a look around my pages and such to see lots more fractals. Also, every Friday I post a FridayFractalFeature (fff, for short) for all to enjoy! Thanks for stopping by and engaging in the A to Z 2013 Challenge! This is my FIRST ever, so I’m pretty excited! So every day I will post a fractal whose title starts with the letter of the day… and perhaps other things fractal related.

Q is for….
the fractal for Q is: Queens’ Valley



Queens’ Valley is in my book, Fractal Dreams, which is available exclusively at RedmundPro.

Disclaimer: I am NOT a mathematician, so please forgive the uneducated tone of my definitions. I am an artist, so I try to explain the math of fractals to the best of my (limited)  ability.

Queen of “The Gods of the Asphalt”
H. E. Ellis

Review of “The Gods of the Asphalt”
by Janet Russell

(Chapter 9)

To judge a story, ask not what it’s about, rather what is happening in it. That’s pretty much how I’d have to describe “The Gods of the Asphalt”. It’s not about a place, or a time, it’s what is happening to Sawyer, his brother, River, his dad and a myriad of other characters who populate this place and time in the middle of everywhere.

From the beginning, I’ve had mixed feelings regarding this story. I want to hurry and find out what happens to these people I’m growing fond of. But also, I fear that something awful might befall these people that suddenly matter to me. And, on top of that, if I do find out what happens, then I’ll be done with the book and won’t get to spend any more time with them.

Sawyer is our guide through this adventure. Though I’m nowhere near being one of them, I fully believe he is just like every other teenage boy in the world. From what he thinks about to what he thinks with.

And it’s not like Sawyer has a simple, uncomplicated life to deal with. His brother, River, looks nothing at all like Sawyer, or their dad. And their mom, Savannah, well, she is the complication that defines their lives.

Every day I spent with Sawyer, whether he was getting the tar beat out of him or teaching his friend Jeb how not to travel (on the basketball court), was an adventure that I couldn’t wait to get all wrapped up in. One thing I didn’t expect was that Sawyer would have such a good heart. Methinks, that is just what Sawyer didn’t expect, as well. And he’s finally getting the chance to get to discover himself. His TRUE self.

H. E. Ellis has turned out one fine first time novel. She is the Queen of “The Gods of the Asphalt”. Though, I have to wonder if maybe she IS a teenage boy.

The book is available in many formats.
Check her out on her Goodreads page.
Or she’s on Smashword
Or the omnipresent Amazon


PS: Happily, there will be at least one more book in this “series”!

BTW – I gave it a FIVE star review on Amazon (that reads exactly like this one)!

In closing…
