Happy Reading 2018

First of all Happy New Year to you all, hope the holidays were nice and peaceful with lots of Happy Reading?

Sorry I have not been around for a while so much happened at the end of last year, Oh it seems so long ago now. The main thing was being involved in the Roses & Dreams 1st ever #WorldBookovision (like Eurovision, but for books instead of songs) over on Facebook. WOW I added so many interesting Indie Books to my 2018 reading list. Click the image below to see the covers of the 30 participating books.

Day 13 Roses & Dreams Christmas Special

Please forgive the delay in posting, I was hoping to post daily but time waits for no man (or woman) and with so much going on right now there has not been a spare moment.

My book ‘Young Ebenezer’ is generating a lot of interest, it is now available in all formats and currently in production as an audio book. Fingers crossed it will be ready to purchase next week. Click the image to take a look inside on amazon. If purchasing the eBook please check compatibility with your eReader I know for certain it will not work on Kindle Paperwhite.

Also I have been fundraising for the Children’s Unit in my local hospital things are slow we have had some generous donations but still only enough to purchase one leg of the table needed for the Table Tennis equipment we hope to purchase.

So if you do happen to have a moment or two spare in your busy life why not pop by the Roses & Dreams Christmas Party on Facebook. Fun, games and giveaways daily throughout December.

I have decided to increase the kindle price for all my novelettes this weekend from £0.99/$0.99 to £1.99/£$1.99 If you’ve been meaning to pick up a copy and haven’t done so yet then you have the chance to do so before the increase. The reason I have decided to do this is two-fold. One is […]

Finally #SpringCleaning

Today I was in the Mood for Spring Cleaning

By this I mean I finally got around to clearing out some of my many, MANY books to make space for the new one’s and my ‘Leaning Tower of Paperbacks’. I believe I filled around 4 boxes & 6 bags all making their way to my local Oxfam BookShop in Hereford.

So the bottom left is after sorting & bottom right ONE shelf left for the new stock.

Not so sure the new stock currently sitting on my bedroom floor will all fit.

I need some new shelves.

Happy Spring Cleaning
