#BookReview:Venom of the Black Lotus by JC Nelson

One of the few upsides of the coronavirus lock down, is that I have more time to read. Having completed my move to the Scottish Highlands at what could not have been a better time (so much space, so few people), I am slowly unpacking, a bit at a time, and organising my stuff. I […]

#BookReview – THE ARCHANGEL by Elicia Hyder #paranormal #supernatural

I’m busy writing (yay!) the next in my Caledonian Sprite series, so today I’m going to share my last review of 2019, a new novella in the Soul Summoner series I have been so enjoying. You can find my other reviews of books in this series here, suffice it to say this supernatural/paranormal series has […]

#BookReview – SECRET GARDEN by Ian Martyn #Paranormal #Mystery

I’m back again with another review, this one the third in the Inspector Kirby mysteries – books 2 & 3 were released at the same time, so it was a great pleasure to go straight on to the next, after enjoying Brexitus! so much. If you missed my review, click on the title to see […]

#BookReview – BREXITUS! by Ian Martyn #paranormal #mystery

Back to reviewing – this time, book #2 in the Northumbria mystery series by Ian Martyn – contemporary mystery with more than a touch of the paranormal and supernatural. I reviewed book #1 HERE at 4*, this one came in as a solid 5* If you like the sound of this book from my review, […]

#BookReview – SOUL DESTROYER by Elicia Hyder #paranormal #angels

First, the good news: I’ve started writing again! I’ve begun both a Rustam short story, and a Caledonian Sprite novel. Both characters are immense fun to write, and just at the moment, Cassie Lake’s sassy, snarky outlook on life resonates with me. The downside is you’ll have to wait a bit longer for the final […]

3 things to do for paperback formatting #publishing #indiepublishing

I’ve been unable to write creatively for some weeks now due to high stress levels, and the ill-health those visit upon the body, so when I haven’t been in the throes of a migraine I’ve been tackling the production of the paperback version of THE PRINCE’S PROTEGE. Under normal circumstances, I would have done this […]

#BookReview – PRINCE OF DREAMS by Pippa DaCosta – Messenger Chronicles #4 #SFF #Paranormal

Continuing to catch up on my reading, I’m also catching up on my reviews. I recently shared my review for book #3 in the Messenger Chronicles: The Nightshade’s Touch, and mentioned that it grabbed me so completely I bought the next one as soon as I got off the aircraft where I’d been reading. Here […]

#BookReview – The Nightshade’s Touch by Pippa DaCosta #SFF #Paranormal

Time to catch up with another review… Fae in space – awesome! A truly masterful mix of fantasy and SF, with a slow-burn reverse harem at its heart. This one is for Book #3 in The Messenger Chronicles by Pippa DaCosta – see my reviews of the previous books: Shoot the Messenger Game of Lies […]

#BookReview – The Threats of Sky and Sea Trilogy by Jennifer Ellision #fantasy #YAfantasy

One week on and I’m still not up to doing anything creative myself yet, so today I’m sharing my review of a box set – you can see my review of Book 1 here, and you can clearly see I enjoyed it enough to go on and buy the set! Elementals: The Threats of Sky […]
