From the Readinista site:
In honor of Valentine’s Day, I asked a few authors experienced in the art of writing romance. Often when I read romantic scenes I wonder how the author dreamed up the scene. As much fun as kissing scenes are to read, I personally think it would be difficult to write these steamy moments without making them either devoid of any actual romance or just too awkward for anyone to want to keep reading.
Kissing scenes are no problem for some of these authors, while a couple others seem to share my sentiment. It’s fascinating to learn about each author’s approach and process for kissing scenes. This post is just part 1 of the kissing scene scenes post so there is more to come. Stay tuned!
Thank you to all of the authors who wrote about kissing. Happy Valentine’s Day to everyone! Please feel free to comment with your thoughts on writing these scenes?

My Rating: 5 out of 5 stars!
Rapture is written in a beautiful, hauntingly way full of descriptive style that leaves your mind tingling. Phillip Simpson expertly braids together an action-packed, coming-of-age story that both females and males of all age will enjoy. There are, of course, religious undertones, but in a classy make-up-your-own-mind kind of way that adds to the overall feel of the story. With this we witness characters question their faith, find their faith and the unwavering faith(even throughout all the struggles he faces, mentally and physically) of the half-demon boy. Irony well played.

Fascinating and riveting! Author Phillip W. Simpson takes the post-apocalyptic vision out for a new test drive: rather than a plague, a nuclear holocaust, or an overrun of zombies, here is the Christian rapture foretold for two millennia, actually occurring.
