SIX STORIES BF AW.indd

The Blurb

One death. Six stories. Which one is true?

1997. Scarclaw Fell. The body of teenager Tom Jeffries is found at an outward bound centre. Verdict? Misadventure. But not everyone is convinced. And the truth of what happened in the beautiful but eerie fell is locked in the memories of the tight-knit group of friends who embarked on that fateful trip, and the flimsy testimony of those living nearby.

2017. Enter elusive investigative journalist Scott King, whose podcast examinations of complicated cases have rivalled the success of Serial, with his concealed identity making him a cult internet figure. In a series of six interviews, King attempts to work out how the dynamics of a group of idle teenagers conspired with the sinister legends surrounding…

Review of Crash Burn Sting by Alora Kate

Reader with a Plan

Happy hump day word nerds!! I hope the first half of your week has gone well! I know mine has!! I love Alora Kate’s books so whenever a chance comes along to read her books I jump all on it! This book is, of course, no exception so without further ado…

Heaven. Hell.
Good. Evil.
What do you believe in?
Who do you believe in?
The best day of my sad, pathetic life was the day I died.
I’m not a good person.
I want the name Rawson Lorde and all that goes with it to be forgotten on Earth. I deserve to rot in hell and reflect on my own choices for the rest of eternity.
I don’t deserve a happily ever after.
I don’t deserve to be in Heaven.
I don’t deserve a second chance at happiness.
So, imagine my surprise when I find God and the Devil…

The wild Air by Rebecca Mascull

About the Book

In Edwardian England, aeroplanes are a new, magical invention, while female pilots are rare indeed.

When shy Della Dobbs meets her mother’s aunt, her life changes forever. Great Auntie Betty has come home from Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, across whose windswept dunes the Wright Brothers tested their historic flying machines. Della develops a burning ambition to fly and Betty is determined to help her.

But the Great War is coming and it threatens to destroy everything – and everyone – Della loves.

Uplifting and page-turning, THE WILD AIR is a story about love, loss and following your dreams against all odds.

My Thoughts

The Wild Air is a wonderful novel, it drew me in from the prologue and had me captivated right through to the final page. This is the story of Cordelia (Della) Dobbs who knows that her place in life is to help her mother…

Book Review: Oh Horrid Night

Erin Crocker

ohorridblog3‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house was a slew of creepy-crawly horror stories guaranteed to scare you more than Aunt Gertrude’s pudding surprise (no offense to the reader who has an actual Aunt Gertrude who brings mystery desserts to family dinners).

Well, hello and welcome back for another good laugh at my feeble book reviewing attempt. Keep laughing, doesn’t bother me. When I review books, I indulge myself in gas station nachos– there’s a payoff after all.

Salem, Massachusetts-based press, FunDead Publications does it again! Headed up by Amber Newberry, Author of ‘Walls of Ash’, this small but growing press places a direct focus on publishing the macabre– which makes sense– they’re based in Salem… soooooooooooooooo, it’d be strange if they produced works about pink unicorns that fart sparkling wish fairies with purple glow-wands. At least, it’d throw me for a loop–

Following the success…

My rating: 3/5Image result for the miniaturist cover

Synopsis: When 18-year-old Nella arrives at her new husband’s home in 1686, she imagines a wonderful life as the wife of a wealthy merchant and hopefully mother to children.
However, much to her dismay, her new household is not at all welcoming. Her sister-in-law, Marin, is cold and critical, and her husband is distant and none too keen to give her attention. What he gives her instead is a miniature version of their house. To furnish her cabinet, Nella enlists the help of a miniaturist, who seems to know more about her future than Nella does herself. The miniaturist sends puzzling pieces, which come to be true in startling ways. When her husband gets into a world of trouble, Nella searches for more clues of what is to come and struggles to understand the person behind her miniature objects…

About Cheree:

From http://www.chereealsop.com/about-2/

“Cheree Alsop grew up on a farm in Utah where she spent morning and night working with animals. Her step-father is a beekeeper as well as a farmer, and so her schooling in the art of honey gathering, animal care, and tending to crops has been tempered by a strong work ethic and an appreciation of hard work and patience. She studied animals on her spare time and became entranced in particular with the North American timber wolf.

Cheree has worked a variety of positions in both the health and marketing industries, including a project manager for a major essential oil corporation, an executive officer for multiple medical clinics, and a designer for CEO presentations. She has ghost written books on health and essential oils and designed pamphlets for business marketing. Cheree has taught high school music classes, and enjoys reading aloud to her daughter and twin sons. Her husband has a successful Chiropractic clinic and she is currently working as a free-lance writer and mother. She is also the bass player for the rock band Alien Landslide.

Cheree and her husband moved from Texas after he earned his Chiropractic degree. They currently live in Utah where they rock out, enjoy the outdoors, and plan great adventures. Cheree is a member of the DFW Writer’s Workshop and the League of Utah Writers, and has an Associate Degree in Creative Writing. She loves reading, writing in stolen moments between being a stay-at-home mom and wife, enjoying time with her daughter, and playing with her twins while planning her next book.”
