My Review:

Shawnee Daniels is a computer forensics specialist by day and a cat burglar by night. I loved how the author managed to blend the two ‘roles’ so well. You get an insight into the talented specialist (or hacker!) as she uses her computer skills to aid the detectives, and then the flip side of her secret life of breaking and entering.

From blog to bestseller #wwwblogs

It only seems like a few weeks ago that I did my closing down ceremony on an old year and embraced the new, and yet here we are in June! I vowed back in January to create an uplifting year with plenty of opportunities and a perfect balance between health, life, and writing.

So far I haven’t listened to a word I said, and I’ve thrown myself into 2016 like the Tasmanian devil!

Over on my motivational blog I wrote a post about starting a happiness jar – I’m pleased to say that I’m still doing this, and my little jar is filling up steadily with all the wonderful things that I’ve done and achieved so far this year.

One of the main highlights of my year has to be my author interview in the Writers’ Forum Magazine (June Issue). Continue reading “From blog to bestseller #wwwblogs”

The Dead Lands

Review:

I’ve read some fabulous reviews about this book and so was eager to get my hands on it, but none of these reviews prepared me for what I was about to read.

I’m already a huge Dylan Morgan fan; his horror books are not to be read without a light on, and his novella, October Rain, was an explosive sci-fi novella. With the promise of a sequel to The Dead Lands on the horizon, I jumped at the chance to read this post-apocalyptic thriller.

Lane is a bounty hunter and not afraid to live his life as a hired gun. He clears the streets of Erebus of the cheating, murdering scum and gets paid for it. When he is forced to re-join the army or face the death penalty, he is thrown into a situation beyond his control. Sent on a mission to the destroyed and desolate twin planet of Hemera, the crew are told that they are answering a distress signal from a president who was placed in a cryogenic tube one hundred years ago.

Sera and her family are thrown into turmoil following the death of her father, but after the family receive an odd black box containing a key as part of his last will and testament, strange occurrences lead Sera to investigate the ‘accident’ that took her father’s life.

Alienated by her so-called friends she has to learn to adapt to her new social standing and downgraded home life. Sera’s mother is of no help to her, nor is her brother, so it falls to her to seek help from a group of otherworldly strangers.

My A-Z of Books

My A-Z of Books.

I spotted this challenge on Portobello Book Blog and thought it was a marvellous idea so decided to give it a go.

Author You’ve Read the Most Books From.

That award goes to the late James Herbert. I was a huge horror fan in my late teens and bought (and read) everything he wrote.

Best Sequel Ever.

Tough one as I do love a good sequel! I’ve decided to go for City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare. It’s the second book in her Mortal Instruments series and was pretty epic.

Currently Reading.

I’m half way through Key of Mystery by K.H.Mezek which I’m reading as part of Rosie Amber’s Book Review Team. It’s a YA urban fantasy novel.

I’m also reading Bitch Witch by S.R.Karfelt which is utterly brilliant.

And if that wasn’t enough, I’m also reading a non-fiction title about Moon Wisdom. Continue reading “My A-Z of Books”

My Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Review:

Dylan Morgan is fast becoming one of my favourite authors. Once again I was instantly captivated by the descriptive writing and fully developed characters. The opening scene of a wife murdering her husband, chopping him up and serving him up for dinner certainly hooked me in.

The brutal and graphic murders that haunt the small town of Vacant are sinister and menacing, but so too are the townsfolk and half of the police force. Continue reading “#BookReview Flesh by @DylanJMorgan #RBRT #TuesdayBookBlog”

My Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Review:

I’m a huge fan of the author’s self-help books, so it was a refreshing change to read his fiction work.

I normally avoid romance novels in general but in The Truth About This Charming Man, the emotional elements run seamlessly alongside the twists and turns of the story.  I was totally hooked from the start when we are introduced to William Lewis, ‘Will’ to his friends, and Zlata Ruzencova, his outlandish Czech agent.
