VBT: Expanding Horizons & Conspiracy Theories

VBT: Expanding Horizons & Conspiracy Theories

      Aloha, friends! Welcome to Week Five of the Tasha Turner Coaching/MasterKoda VBT!
      This week’s scheduled guest is the wonderful, funny, unflappable lady of DeAnnaTroupe.com… DeAnna Troupe! She’s here to share her current summer reading picks. Give it up for her! *wild applause*


What I’m Reading Now

      I usually don’t read two books at a time.
      I’m really OCD that way. I usually like to finish one book before I move on to another book. I’m currently reading What She Knew, by our very own K.R. Hughes and T.L. Burns and Dawn by Octavia Butler.
      Why did I choose these titles? I love conspiracy theory type books. What bigger conspiracies exist than Marilyn Monroe and John F Kennedy? So quite naturally I was drawn to this book from the moment I heard about it. I also wanted to support a fellow Kodan. So that explains that title.
      Why did I pick the other one? Well I like to read sci-fi and I wanted to read something other than Star Trek. I wanted to expand on my knowledge of the sci-fi genre. Someone I met on the train suggested that I read Octavia Butler. She’s an African-American sci-fi author. So far I’m enjoying both titles!
      What are you reading?

DeAnna Troupe is a native of Atlanta, Georgia, and a serial entrepreneur that has always loved helping others. Her very first job was as an algebra tutor at the tender age of 14. Since then she has amassed over 10 years of experience at all levels of business including running her own freelance secretarial business. She has been on the social media scene since before we even knew that’s what we were doing. She has a knack for coming up with creative ways to solve tough problems. She has published a book on Amazon called Tips For Sophisticated Marketers. She is an effective teacher that enjoys seeing her clients get to the next level with their business. When she’s not coaching clients on integrating video in their social media strategy, she enjoys spending time with her husband and step kids, reading, writing, crocheting, and singing.

      So what ARE you reading? Contemporary or classic? Cozy or chock full o’ gory detail? Can you not choose just one? If not, why not? Comment below, people, and show DeAnna some love!

Love & Rainbows,

  1. Well, I JUST finished “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter” by Seth Grahame-Smith (a post about which is at Ed Griffin’s blog:here.) And before that, I also read “What She Knew” by Burns & Hughes, our fellow MKers.

    I need to go back and finish “Cedar Woman” so I can complete my review – but the borrowed faux-Kindle I’ve been using seems to be on its last legs. Eek. I may need to break down and buy either a Kindle or a Nook after all!

    The physical book that is presently in my hands, however, is “Debut Novel” by yours truly. Hah! I could not let those precious CreateSpace coupons go to waste, right? I’ll be posting about THAT adventure next week. ;D

  2. Its always great to see conspiracy news!
