Bibliophile’s Collective Tuesday – A Woman’s Life Anthology and Current Reading

January 12, 2021

I am honoured and thrilled (excuse the pun!) to be included in this celebration of women’s lives. We all have such varied experiences, but share so much at the same time. I wrote about my thrill of sensation, something that remains with me even today. And yes, given the change I will sit on a swing to enjoy the pendulum sensation.

What is your ‘thrill’?

My Book Review

As usual King delivers captivating stories. I loved the author notes are the back as he described how the story ideas formed. This is such an enlightening tool for any writer to see how a well established author comes up with their ideas.
Each story weaves a spell as only King can.
Highly recommended to all readers, its not ‘horror’

My current book is Seven Lies by Elizabeth Kay – it gripped from the first page.

Bibliophile’s Collective Tuesday – A Chance to Vote on my Next Book

June 30, 2020

As I have only a few chapters of re-editing to complete on my steam punk novel before it goes to my publisher, I thought I would let you vote on which book I delve into next. I have two manuscripts that I can choose from.  So let’s see which is the most popular.

western

1. Willow Tree Tears. Western romance. Barrel racing champion, Madison Beauchamp has two suitors, one who knows her lifestyle and works on her father’s ranch with her but who has a hidden agenda, and the other, who lives in another country, a world away from her norm. Who should Madison choose? The one who knows her life all too well or the exotic wealthy Italian?

suspense
2. The Giving Thief. Suspense. He ran away from a horrific act, now living in the forest alone. How long can he stay hidden? Can he survive alone? A true hermit or a murderer?
Which one appeals the most and let me know why.

And remember review every books you read on Goodreads or Amazon or Smashwords or anyway you can. Reviews are an authors lifeblood.
