Today I am totally thrilled to be on the blog tour for The Puppet Master which is Abigail Osbornes debut novel for Bloodhound Books. Many thanks to Sarah Hardy for inviting me.

About this book…

Billie is hiding from the world in fear of a man who nearly destroyed her. But a chance meeting with budding journalist, Adam, sparks a relationship that could free her from her life of isolation and fear.

Unbeknown to Billie, Adam knows exactly who Billie is and is determined to expose her and get justice for the lives he believes she has ruined. But first, he needs to convince her to open up to him. As an unwanted attraction blossoms between them, Adam comes to realise that all is not as it seems.

13 Reasons Why – Jay Asher ★★★★★

Between The Pages Book Club

Blurb;Clay Jensen returns home from school to find a strange package with his name on it lying on his porch. Inside he discovers several cassette tapes recorded by Hannah Baker—his classmate and crush—who committed suicide two weeks earlier. Hannah’s voice tells him that there are thirteen reasons why she decided to end her life. Clay is one of them. If he listens, he’ll find out why.

Clay spends the night crisscrossing his town with Hannah as his guide. He becomes a firsthand witness to Hannah’s pain, and as he follows Hannah’s recorded words throughout his town, what he discovers changes his life forever.

My Review;I decided to read this story as I have heard a lot about it, both good and bad! Many mixed reviews, also because of the series on Netflix which I have not yet watched so cannot compare to the book.

13 Reasons Why is…

Book Review : Clipped Wings by Jennifer Gilmour 

Life Lessons Post

This book had my heart beating wildly in my chest as I read each real life account from survivors of domestic abuse.

Synopsis:

The silent chorus. Just imagine you thought that you had met the man or woman of your dreams. This person was charming and you thought they were the one or perhaps that this was fate; it was just meant to be. But as the months go by things start to change. Their behaviour towards you isn’t the same, they are more critical, more particular about your appearance, what you do, how you do it, who you see. Time goes by and you feel isolated from your friends and family because that behaviour has now changed to threats, maybe violence and you feel that your identity is all but gone. But still you stay. Where would you go? Who would help you? You are not worthy. But you…

Upcoming: All the Tomorrows by Nillu Nasser

My train of thoughts on...

Dear friends and readers,

Drum rolls, please:

All the Tomorrows by Nillu Nasser will be published tomorrow!

I just finished the ARC and – loved it. My review will go live by the end of the week.

⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

All the Tomorrows

Sometimes we can’t escape the webs we are born into. Sometimes we are the architects of our own fall.

Akash Choudry wants a love for all time, not an arranged marriage. Still, under the weight of parental hopes, he agrees to one. He and Jaya marry in a cloud of colour and spice in Bombay. Their marriage has barely begun when Akash embarks on an affair.

Jaya can’t contemplate sharing her husband with another woman, or looking past his indiscretions as her mother suggests. Cornered by sexual politics, she takes her fate into her own hands in the form of a lit match.

Nothing endures…

Book of the Month… Catling’s Bane — Myths of the Mirror

There are few online surprises quite as delightful as popping onto WP in the morning and finding an unexpected review of your book. Or better yet, that your creation has earned a little limelight.

Confluence: Allies and Enemies (Space Fleet Sagas Book 3)

About the book: Daniel Cooper returns. Following a head injury from an attempted assassination, his regenerative abilities have rebuilt his brain. Will he be the same as before? Earth certainly has changed.
An isolationist anti-alien movement threatens to destroy the United Earth Council and return the planet to regional rule. An unusual band of allies work behind the scenes to discover the truth behind the conspiracy. The new and improved (?) Coop must join if Earth is to remain a stable force in the galaxy.
Elie Casalobos and the PT-109, John F. Kennedy are part of a battle group of Space Fleet ships sent to determine if the Prophet is a harbinger of peace, or the destroyer of worlds. The group sails into a distant star system and a dangerous vortex in space. Peace talks or trap?
Alien allies are left wondering if Earth and Space Fleet will join the rest of the galaxy, or shut them off.
Confluence completes the storylines set up in Book Two of the Space Fleet Sagas — CONFRONTATION. It also completes the foundation novels begun with Book One — CONTACT AND CONFLICT.
It is strongly suggested you read CONFRONTATION (bk 2) in order to fully appreciate CONFLUENCE. Hereafter the adventures awaiting the Space Fleet Saga characters will be completed within each new novel.

Today I have the pleasure of introducing author Don Foxe who will be sharing his thoughts on reading and writing, and details of his book series, Sapce Fleet Sagas.

 Don on Writing

Where do you get your ideas?   Combination of history, my life, and current events.

What motivates you to write?      Joy. It’s fun seeing what happens.

How many hours a week do you spend writing?  

This is a bit tricky, because now that I have published works, I find a lot of my time is spent writing for marketing, not just in production of the next story or collection — still, I average two hours/day on fiction alone, so fourteen to fifteen hours/week.

Best thing about writing?

Again, for me, because of how I write, its seeing where the characters take the storyline.

Your biggest writing distractions?
