Halloween Teaser from Young Ebenezer

Young Eb Bully Teaser

Happy Halloween

Were you out trick or treating? No me neither, and with the weather so damp the kids stayed away this evening too. More sweets for me whoop whoo.

I do however have a treat for you. I am working on a new ‘Young Ebenezer’ story and below is a little teaser. I hope you enjoy it, I would love to know your thoughts leave me a comment below. Happy Reading.

Young Ebenezer ~ Confronts the School Bully

I bring you a treat,
a Halloween story.
Of young Ebenezer
and his best friend young Rory.
I watch over the boys,
I am Grandfather Time,
and I’ll tell you this tale
in rhythm and rhyme.

It is All Hallows Eve,
and the kids in the schools
are getting excited
to go home, dress as ghouls.
There’ll be vampires and ghosts
with monsters galore,
stepping out on the streets,
to knock on your door.

‘Boing, Boing.’ I chime out
as Eb reaches our door.
‘Boing, Boing.’ Once again
as my hands have reached four.
The house it smells yummy,
Mum’s made a great feast
and like the Grinch in the film
Dad will carve the roast beast.

School bag and blazer
are thrown without care,
and land in a heap
at the base of the stair.
‘Go back, pick them up.’
His Dad’s strict command,
‘Or no treats for you,
no matter how much, you demand.’

Eb does as he’s told
so he won’t miss the treats.
Or his first Halloween,
with his mates on the streets.
Dinner is rushed
and fills up his tummy.
But there is still room for sweets
and all things that are yummy.

Now two streets away,
Halloween started early
for a naughty young lad,
his name – Jacob Marley.
He’s the naughtiest boy,
in the whole of the school,
and is often caught out,
breaking every rule.

Jacob Marley thinks nothing,
of stealing kids treats.
He’s an absolute terror,
when out on the streets.
A boy who is bad,
and never plays nice.
Of tormenting a child,
he never thinks twice.

His plot for the day,
to steal all the treats
that others collected
after walking the streets.
But today I am watching,
And he’s in for a surprise
let us hope we can change,
his ways by sunrise.

I am Grandfather Time
With magical powers
I can enter a clock
as it chimes out the hours.
My friend is a puppy
named Miss Ruby Heart,
and together we help
children make a new start.

To be continued…

Thank you for visiting.

27 Goodreads ‘Wings of Defiance’

27 Immortal Sorrows

Wings of Defiance: Book 3 of The Immortal Sorrows seriesWings of Defiance: Book 3 of The Immortal Sorrows series by Sherri A. Wingler

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Book 27 of my Goodreads Challenge

WOW I REALLY LOVE THIS SERIES

This is Book 3 in the Immortal Sorrows Series, you really should read books 1 & 2 before this one though in order to understand what is happening.

The focus this time is on the Dark Reaper Grim (who by the way is sexy as hell) and his relationship with Gwen equally as gorgeous. She lost her best friend and is trying to come to terms with all that is happing in a world where paranormal is becoming a normal way of life for her.

I love the writing of this author so many memorable lines within each book, below is just one outstanding line I wil remember for a long time,

‘She lay the yellow rose between the graves with a heavy sigh, a splash of sunlight on the barren ground.’

This series is VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

About the Author Sherri A. Wingler

Sherri Wingler is the author of Wings of Darkness, Book 1 of The Immortal Sorrows series. She lives and works (way more than full-time) in Indiana. She shares her home with her husband, Steve, way too many rescued kitty cats, two geriatric dogs, and a co-dependent Shih-Tzu named Spanky. (Without Spanky’s help, Wings of Darkness would have been finished much sooner!)

When she isn’t working in the real world, or writing stories to keep herself entertained, her spare time is spent raising money for her local Humane Society, in the hopes that she can save at least a few little critters.

Over for another year, the UK Indie Lit Fest

LitFest 29 BEST

UK Indie Lit Fest 2018

What an amazing day, the rain did not keep the sunshine from entering Kala Sangam  in Bradford where the 3rd annual UK Indie Lit Fest was hosted last weekend. There were so many talented writers chatting with a great number of Book Lovers and readers of all ages. There are tons of photographs to check out on all the social media pages but visit the lit fest website for some of the best ones. Click the logo to visit.

Book Lover, Superfan, WINNER.

Although the UK Indie Lit Fest is a FREE Book Event all those attending were asked to download a FREE ticket. This not only helped us with finding out the numbers who might have been attending, but the ticket also acted as a raffle ticket with the opportunity for one lucky attending book lover to win a signed book.

No one was more suprised than our superfan and blogger Rainne Atkins who was the winner of the draw. She was telling me last year she spent around £200 on books, so she has been saving for a whole year. The way she was buying books I bet she exceeded last years spend? Rainne is a wonderul person and always happy to help Indie Authors, Writers & Poets. Congratulations to her the prize could not go to a better person (Actually I think she used the prize to treat her granddaughter Shanice to a book by our Indie Author friend K.S. Marsden.

Click HERE to visit Rainne’s wonderful blog and see the phenomenal amout of books she reads and reviews.
