This wonderful author has a beautiful soul and helps her fellow Indie Authors all the time so she is very deserving of a prize like this.

So the day has finally arrived when my lovely author friend Maria Gibbs and I find out if we are ready to host our 2nd Online Facebook Christmas Party. Why not come and say Hi all from the comfort of your own home (Or where ever you may be?) Eat, drink and be Merry.
There will be lots of fun, games and giveaways. A great many number of our Indie Author Friends will be joining us and lots of them have very kindly donated FREE eBooks for you to win.
Maria will be doing a special ‘Cover Reveal’ for a wonderful new book that I have had the great pleasure of reading as an ARC or Advance Reading Copy. If you want to know more get yourself over to Facebook no time like the present (even if it is before or after the party event). There are lots of things for you to check out especially a whole host of #BooksWeLove. Below are just a small selection. To join the party click below
Thanks for dropping by, do call again and tell your book reader friends.
‘Seal Mother’ by Rose English
The beautiful illustration on the cover was penned by the wonderful artist Abigail Ryder
called ‘Daughter of the Selkies’
The text and background cover done by the wonderful JC Clarke visit her Etsy store
I thought this little folktale finished, yet I find myself expanding the book so people will hopefully get their money’s worth. I have done this by adding a further story this time of a handsome selkie male. An old folktale from the Shetland Isles check the tune below on the video.
‘The Great Selkie of Sule Skerry’
Here now follows a small teaser of ‘Seal Mother’ followed by my own little video from YouTube
I do hope you enjoyed these little treats, I would love to read your thoughts please do drop me a line in the comments below.
So as promised a little bit more on my WIP
Today a sneak peek at the first story which is the title of the book too.
‘One Night In Fabulous Shoes’
OK so here I am, like I said playing wallflower, awaiting my turn to be escorted around the floor by one of the elderly brethren doing his fatherly duty so to speak. These events draw mainly couples and most of them have shared a life-time with each other, very loyal. It is very rare for single males to grace the event but there was ‘something in the air tonight’ (“Oh lord”, sorry bit of Genesis popped into my head then) or maybe it was the glass or three of red I had consumed whilst toasting ‘His Worshipful Master’ Hic!
Suddenly I had a ‘Westside Story’ moment the music slowed and the dance floor cleared. Across the room was a pure vision of gentle-manliness. Yes, tall dark and most certainly handsome, he seemed to be wearing some type of dress uniform; very dapper (I can use that word as we are currently at an old fashioned event and etiquette allows me to use it).
And here are the shoes that inspired the tale
Silver Roland Cartier Shoes, you have to agree they are totally fabulous.
Hope you enjoyed this sneak peek. I am giving away 5 PDF copies of the story during our special ‘Roses & Dreams Christmas Party on Facebook
Why not drop by and say Hi, lots of fun, games and giveaways

Thanks for visiting, love to read your thoughts below.
Hello, so I thought it was about time I brought you up to date. I did start another website, unfortunately the costs to renew were way too high and they shut me down. As I was posting there and not here you lovely people may have missed out. So please forgive me.
In November I took part in the NaNoWriMo Challenge, to write a 50,000 word story in one month. I just about scraped through but the basis of the project was a collection of short stories based on or inspired by shoes that I own (or did).
The idea came to me after spotting some beautiful tempting book covers by my lovely graphic designer friend JC Clarke. Check out her Etsy Shop by clicking HERE.
The image at the top of the page was just one such cover, I bought a set of 3.
I had it in my head to call the book something like ‘The Life of Shoes’ (or Su’s Shoe Shorts) but then I saw the lovely image above and started writing my first short story, I decided to add the words Fabulous Shoes and there was the title. ‘One Night in Fabulous Shoes’
I came out with some weird and wacky ideas over that month so come back and visit again to see how the work progresses.
Thanks for dropping by. Oh by the way here is just a small selection of my shoes. Enjoy.
