Readers, Download my Free Book on Amazon

Readers, did you download my Free Book, Revenge of Zeeka: Zeeka and the Zombies Book 1, at Amazon?
Here is the Book Description:
On the island of Gosh in Jan 2036, Raynor is awakened by the sound of robot-like creatures on the beach overlooking his villa,
Was he dreaming o was it a vision?
Raynor is a hospital doctor.
The woman he secretly loves is engaged to another man, and is sleeping in the next room.
Why is she there?
Everything seems hazy to Raynor until he receives a phone call from the hospital's Chief of staff to attend an urgent meeting.
But who is Number Nine?
He seemed harmless until he said that his Master is Zeeka and he wants revenge.
Why does Zeeka want revenge?
One man knows Zeeka's secrets, but can he stop the bloodshed and save the Islanders in time?
For answers to these questions, you must continue reading each of the books in the mind-blowing series.
Revenge of Zeeka: Zeeka and the Zombies, Book 1, is the engaging introduction to the science fiction series Zeeka Chronicles: Revenge of Zeeka, which consists of five books.
Zeeka and the Zombies Book I, Zeeka's Child Book 2, Zeeka Returns Book 3, Zeeka's Ghost Book 4, and Resurrection Book 5

Review:
An intriguing start of a promising series.
Format: Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a story about a mad scientist who got really mad. We do not learn about him and his motives much in this book since it's just the first part of the series. Yet Brenda Mohammed shows us the first consequences of his madness in this clever story about a virus outbreak leading to an emergence of strange zombie-like people. The fast pace and amount of action keeps this story thrilling. At the same time, the author manages to give us a glimpse of the main characters' feelings that do not concern the zombies directly. We can observe a young doctor planning her marriage and her admirer's disappointment. This seems to be a plot within the main plot, and it makes this story more complex, the characters easier to relate to, which is not easy to achieve in such a short story that is packed with action. Yet there is a final twist that reveals to us that personal lives of the main protagonists may be infected by Zeeka's influence more than it seems at first glance.
This book leaves many questions unanswered and makes me look forward to reading the sequels. I can even imagine this book as a good movie.

I picked this up as a quick beach read. Heart Warming Tales is a short book of stories with intriguing plots and pleasant characters. Although each story is set in the real world there seems to be a fantastical quality to each. The style of the writing is satisfyingly simple and easy to follow.

Best-Selling Author Susan Faw interviews Brenda Mohammed

Author spotlight caught up with superheroine Brenda Mohammed and her trusty sidekick pooch, cruising in her cancer kicking pink mobile.
Advocate for all things rosy, Brenda is sure to be found at the forefront of any cancer-related crusade.

Without further ado, here’s Brenda!

Why don’t you tell us a little bit about yourself?


Author Brenda Mohammed
First Susan, let me thank you for offering to do this interview. I am a Multi-Genre Author living in Trinidad and Tobago and am a fan of photography and art. When I am not writing I am on Canva.com playing around with graphics. If you visit my author page at Amazon, you will see the seventeen books I wrote and the ones for which I received awards.

Two of my non-fiction books and one fiction book have won awards.

I am Cancer Free’ won the award for Best Non-fiction from McGrath House in 2016.


My Life as a Banker: A Life Worth Living’ was voted second in the category Best Bio/memoirs in the SIBA Awards by Metamorph’s Publishing in 2016.


Zeeka Chronicles: Revenge of Zeeka’ placed third in the category Best Science Fiction in SIBA Awards 2017.

I donate books to children’s hospitals, national libraries, and school libraries. I love to travel and I wrote a book on my travel memoirs.

How did you get started on your writing journey?



I started writing after I left the corporate world. I retired at an early age from my job as a Manager of a leading bank in the Caribbean and entered the Insurance Industry. I qualified for the prestigious Million Dollar Round Table six years in a row. As a result, I attended the MDRT Conferences in various cities in the United States. At those conferences, I heard from many speakers, who spoke about how they achieved success in life. Every one of them wrote a book. I decided to write a book and to date, I have written seventeen.

Are there any poets or writers who influence you? How so?

When I was attending High School, I read, “The Power of Positive Thinking,” by Norman Vincent Peale. That book influenced my life in many ways.

Let’s talk about your novel! What is it about?

As I said earlier, I wrote eighteen books so I will talk about the first book I wrote.


It is about my bout with cancer. The name of the book is ‘I am Cancer Free: A memoir.’

How is the title significant?

The title is just what it is. After twelve years, I am still cancer free.

Where did inspiration for this come from?

When I decided to write this, I felt that I had a good story to write – a story that will benefit others who may find themselves in a similar position in which I found myself. I did not start writing about my bout with ovarian cancer until eight years after I was afflicted with it. I wanted to be sure that I was indeed cancer free and could convey that message to the world.

Who do you think would like your story and what kind of readership are you aiming for?

Persons who have cancer or have a loved one going through that ordeal are interested in my story.

What is the message you are trying to get across in your book?

Never give up. The doctor in Trinidad gave up on me. My husband, children, and others did not; neither did the doctors at the University of Miami Sylvester Cancer Centre. I also emphasize the power of prayer.

What is your writing process like?

At first, I had no process. I just sat at the computer and wrote. Later on, after reading several writing courses I learnt to draft a plot before starting my book.

How do you go about editing your story?



I invested in Pro-Writing Aid. This software helps me to fix style and other issues. It searches out elements like repetitiveness, vague wording, sentence length variation, over-dependence on adverbs, passive voice, over-complicated sentence constructions, and much more.

ProWritingAid analyzes my writing and presents its findings in twenty-five different reports. It highlights potential pitfalls in my writing.

I can decide which suggestions work for my content, and the ones to ignore. When I am satisfied with my final draft I send it to my beta readers for further evaluation.

Where did you find your cover artist and what was the process like?

For this first book, I designed my own cover, but I discovered Sharon Brownlie for my fiction series, Zeeka Chronicles: Revenge of Zeeka.
She is a person I can relate too.

How did you go about getting published?

I chose the self-publishing route and published on Amazon Kindle Publishing and Draft2Digital.



What was your self-publishing experience like?

I had no problems. I followed the guidelines and the book was published.

What are the pros and cons of self-publishing?

With self-publishing, you can go in and change your content as often as you wish. I can also choose the price I wish to sell the book. With traditional publishing, authors do not have those privileges. I know of authors who complain that their books are priced too high, readers refuse to buy, and they can do nothing about it. Self-publishing has its stigma. Maybe readers prefer traditionally published books but I have not felt any loss by being self-published.

What were the surprises? Good or bad? If so, what were they?

There were good surprises for ‘I am Cancer Free.’

In September 2016, the book was the Winner in the category non-fiction in McGrath House Indie Book Awards.

In February 2017, it received a five-star review and five-star seal from Readers Favorite.

It has remained in the top 100 on Amazon in the category Medical eBooks > Internal Medicine > Oncology > Chemotherapy. I am surprised that it is still there.

At one time, it was No.10.

Two of my other self-published books received awards from Metamorph Publishing Summer Indie Book Awards, five-star reviews, and five- star seals from Readers Favorite in 2016 and 2017.

How do you go about promoting your book as a self-published author?



I do ads with canva.com and post them on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. I also write about my books in my blogs. I have a page on my website for all of my books.

Is there something about the whole process you wish someone had told you before? Good or bad?

Yes. I wish that I had taken writing and book marketing courses before I started writing. I have learned from trial and error over the past couple of years.

Do you have any advice for writers who want to self-publish?

Yes. I do. My motto always has been “The sky is the limit. Always reach for the skies.”
That should be every author’s motto.
I am also writing a new book, ‘How to write for Success: Best Writing Advice I received.’
It is now on Pre-order at the reduced price of 0.99 cents until publication on 1st December 2017, my Birthday.


What plans do you have for the future of your writing?

I will continue to write when the ideas flow.
