#Sharing Sue Vincent’s Blog

There was still a little time before my son had to be at the station… time enough simply to drive, showing him some of the places I love, places that call me home to a place I have yet to live. I am a Yorkshire lass, but the hills know no border, no boundary line. […]

The Passionate Shepherd to His Love

I absolutely love rhyming poetry and so glad I found this lovely little blog 🙂


Come live with me and be my love,
And we will all the pleasures prove
That valleys, groves, hills, and fields,
Woods, or steepy mountain yields.

And we will sit upon the rocks,
Seeing the shepherds feed their flocks,
By shallow rivers to whose falls
Melodious birds sing madrigals.

And I will make thee beds of roses
And a thousand fragrant posies,
A cap of flowers, and a kirtle
Embroidered all with leaves of myrtle;

A gown made of the finest wool
Which from our pretty lambs we pull;
Fair lined slippers for the cold,
With buckles of the purest gold;

A belt of straw and ivy buds,
With coral clasps and amber studs:
And if these pleasures may thee move,
Come live with me, and be my love.

The shepherds’ swains shall dance and sing
For thy delight each May morning:
If these delights thy mind may move,

Blood on the Snow

A great review check it out 🙂

The Written Word


Winter, 1794, Flanders, and the British are retreating.

Faced by appalling weather and pursued by an overwhelming enemy, the very survival of the British Army is at stake.

With little supplies and ammunition, Lieutenant Jack Hallam of the 28th Regiment must prove himself by leading his company through the full horrors of the withdrawal, where morale is desperately low, and where looting and ill-discipline are rife.

The men must endure freezing temperatures, disease and battle if they wish to see home again, and if any officer can accomplish this feat, then that man is Jack Hallam.

Blood on the Snow is a gripping tale of honour, bravery and self-sacrifice in the darkest of times.

Fight not for glory, but to survive.



The third installment in David Cook’s The Soldier Chronicles, Blood on the Snow is a harrowing tale of war, bravery, duty, and camaraderie. Cook packs a…

13 Book Banter with Craig Hallam

Forgot to share the interview of my fellow Yorkshire man Craig Hallam but here you are better late than never 🙂

Indie Book Banter

Introducing Craig Hallam

Craig Pic 02

  1.  #IndieBookBanter today welcomes our Indie Author Craig Hallam.  Please tell us a little bit about yourself, and the best place for us to find out more.

Hi everyone, I’m Craig Hallam, an author of Speculative Fiction from Doncaster, South Yorkshire. My main motivation is to get the stories that keep popping into my head out on paper before I go utterly mad. I write wherever I can, in whatever spare time I can find, and take every word as a small blessing. As for secrets about myself…then they wouldn’t be secrets would they?

2. Briefly tell us about your work in progress, what are you planning next? 

As usual, I’m juggling three books right now. I’m working on the third (and final) instalment of The Adventures of Alan Shaw trilogy, a cyberpunk novel and a horror novella as well.
