#BookStuffing and why it matters.

Cait's Creatures

If you’ve been on twitter in Romancelandia recently, you may have noticed some interesting hashtags.

#cockygate
#tiffanygate
#bookstuffing
#GETLOUD

Some of them have been talked about to the max, (#cockygate, #BYEFaleena), and some are just starting to gain momentum (#tiffanygate). If you haven’t heard of any of these yet, I suggest falling down the rabbit hole on twitter to find out more. This post isn’t going to explain #cockygate or #tiffanygate (though Tiffanygate and BookStuffing have something in common).

As a reader, I came across Kindle Unlimited about a year ago. It was as I was discovering more indie authors, and wanted to find more. So I got my subscription, and started devouring books that participated in the program. I found authors like Alexa Riley, Mia Madison, Madison Faye, Ella Summers and so many more. I started reading novellas and full length novels, reading almost 200 books in a year…

The Normalization of Perpetual Disaster

Kenn Orphan

In case you missed it…

A hole the size of the Netherlands has opened in the middle of the Antarctic ice sheet. 40,000 penguins just perished of starvation on the same continent. And earlier this summer an iceberg weighing one trillion tons broke away adding more momentum to inevitable global sea level rise.
Floods have killed thousands and displaced many more over the summer and into autumn from China to India and Nepal to Southeast Asia to West Africa. Scores of people were killed and many still missing from fires that have scorched Northern California, Spain and Portugal. Three and a half million people in Puerto Rico are still in survival mode without drinking water or electricity weeks after Hurricane Irma made landfall. Parts of the Gulf Coast are a toxic soup of chemicals. The Amazon rain forest, the lungs of the planet, are belching…

Book Review – The Camera Guy by R.W. Goodship

http://amzn.to/2hcWpRr

camera guy coverAfter discovering this book on Twitter and reading that the Author was a retired police officer (with 22 years experience in forensics), I knew I had to read it. The fact that it has a paranormal twist only added to my interest and oh boy, I was not disappointed! The crime-scenes are true events that really happened; only they have been authentically adapted into a gripping part-fiction, part-truth story, with just enough information that leaves you slightly squirming but wanting to know more. Without giving too much away, the main character Bill Walters, arouses a great deal of suspicion amongst his fellow police officers. His ability to see the spirit of dead victims at crime-scenes gives him the edge; he has never lost a case! When his Inspector employs Tom, a psychologist, to spy on Bill, he sees straight through Tom’s cover story. The relationship between them develops into something quite unexpected and makes for great reading. This book really had everything for me; great characters, intrigue and a little humour thrown in. I can’t recommend it enough…a very well deserved five stars!

Cosmic Influences on the 1977 Tenerife Aviation Disaster

An amazing insight into cosmic influences on the day of the Tenerife air disaster. In conjunction with the amazing book by OJ Modjeska, ‘Gone – A Catastrophe in Paradise’. This true story moved me to tears.

Marcha's Two-Cents Worth

doorintospacebkgd[Note: Several weeks ago I posted a review of the book “Gone: Catastrophe in Paradise” by O.J. Modjeska, which chronicled events leading up to and following the horrific ground collision between two jumbo jets in the Canary Islands in March 1977, killing 583 people. As a professional astrologer, of course I had to look at the cosmic influences at work at the time. As is typical of an event chart, everything was there, but at the time I didn’t have time to write it up. Thus, I am doing so now.]

Astrology isn’t simple. Every planet, major fixed star, constellation, named asteroid (and some that aren’t), zodiac sign, and house has multiple meanings and implications. The good news is that this is conducive to computer interpretations, or what is sometimes referred to as “cook book astrology.” I sell several varieties of such reports and use them for myself, family, and…

THE ORDER by JOHN MAYER #The Parliament House Books 2 @johnmayerauthor

This sounds like a brilliant read…I absolutely love the cover too!

BOOK DESCRIPTION

The story of how The Earl of Marchion who owes £7.8m in Death Duties, thought he could kidnap, smuggle and cheat his way out of paying them. But he didn’t reckon on the skills of an 11 year old African girl or her crusading lawyer Mr Brogan McLane QC.

HERE ARE MY THOUGHTS AND REVIEW

This is the second book in the series although I believe that it could be enjoyed as a standalone book. This is such a tragic story of human trafficking and the appalling ways in which children can be shamefully used and abused all for greed and profit. The opening scenes set in Africa are unthinkable. I just couldn’t get my mind round what little value a man put on his children. I don’t mean monetry I mean in the human sense, God damn it these were his flesh and blood and it was…

My Very First Blog Post!

Nostra Dame Blog

Hello world! Finally got round to writing my first ever blog post; something I’ve been meaning to do for a while. I aim to write a random kind of blog…stuff about books, my thoughts on the world and current events.

As a child I was an avid reader, often holed-up in my bedroom, reading Enid Blyton, and the likes. But then in my late teens, work and life (partying) took over and having little spare time, my love of reading took a back seat. I still read the occasional book but it had to be non-fiction. Back then, I was only interested in true-life and considered fiction a waste of time; that is until the summer of 2016, when my passion for crime-fiction and psychological thrillers was born.

So what brought on this sudden yearning, you may wonder? I think it was initially down to self-publishing my first book; Nostra Dame – A True Story. The book details how a near-death…
