A wonderful essay!

M A G P I E à la modus operandi

Entire worlds exist of just two people in love. Entire worlds exist of just two people in love.

In 1959, I knew a girl who (like me) aspired to be a writer.

Her name was Ann.

She was an oddity of sorts among the girls I occasionally accompanied to Brown’s Pharmacy where we sat at the counter on hot summer afternoons and ate Cheese Doodles while sipping Cokes through waxed paper straws in glasses topped off with half inch ice cubes.

At barely five feet and under 90 pounds, I was a wisp. She was taller by five inches and heavier, with a pronounced pear shaped body. Although her family was prominent, living in a big house in a better neighborhood, Ann dressed in drab colors, had wing shaped eyeglasses that she was constantly shoving back up to the top of her flat nostril nose, wore braces to correct an overbite and fixed her mousey brown hair in an…

Looking to Pirate my Books?

I feel EXACTLY the same way! Please read this!

Bridget Essex, Author

I’ve been a little quiet lately because I’ve been a little depressed about something. I’ve been working every day, so my sadness hasn’t affected my output thankfully (and, hopefully, A Knight to Remember will be out tomorrow, depending on how the final edits go today!). But I’m an honest person, and I’m also pretty open about stuff, so I thought I would share with you what’s made me sad.

A lot of people pirate my books. A lot. At Rose and Star Press, we purposefully make certain that every file we put on sites like Amazon, Smashwords or Barnes and Noble is not DRM encrypted. What does that mean? That basically means that if you pay for our books on one device, we want you to be able to put that book on any other device you want, so the book itself is shareable. Now, of course, this is…

THANK YOU!

To my fans, friends, readers in general I am truly humbled by the thanks I have been sent in the forms of emails, in boxes, and reviews for the book I published 3 weeks ago called LAWYERED. But…it is I who really need to thank YOU for taking the time to purchase and read it. It has been #3 most of the time on Amazon and even made it up to #2 here in the states. In England it was #1, #2, & #3. How can an author thank you anymore than this heartfelt thanks and although I have thanked those who have sent me the emails and inboxes, I thank those who have purchased who are too shy to say anything but have obviously been spreading the word. So THANK YOU! It makes the writing and the angst over these stories worth the while!

~ CHAPTER 1 ~

The view from her window wasn’t that impressive as she looked at the dismal aged and gray buildings outside on an equally dismal and gray day in New York, but at least she had a window and a view.  Not all associates had a window, most were in inner offices but she was a senior associate, a lawyer of council if you will, and it was part of her perks.  She looked out it a long time, lost in thought even though she knew she should be getting to the pile of briefs on her desk.  Instead she daydreamed about the incredible offer she had just received.  She had known it was coming, she knew she deserved it, but at the moment wasn’t sure if she should be insulted.

Nia Toyomoto worked for one of the most prestigious law firms in Manhattan.  It wasn’t a small…
