Book Review: Christmas Crafting with Lacey by Lacey Lane

Here’s my five star review of ‘Christmas Crafting with Lacey’.
This is a short craft book, packed with lots of ideas for Christmas crafts. All the ideas are worth trying and give professional looking products. The author rightly points out, that children doing these crafts should be supervised, as she uses, for example, scissors and glue guns for some of the crafts. In some ways the book is like a recipe book; you get the ingredients you will need for each craft and then the instructions. It is clear, well set out and illustrated with beautiful coloured pictures. So if you are looking to personalize your Christmas, this is the book for you.

You can purchase this book on Amazon’s Kindle for £1.99 in the UK here.
In the US you can purchase it for $2.55, here.

The Truth Finder

Thank you so much Sarah. I’ve reblogged.

Sarah Stuart - Romantic Suspense

It’s very easy to identify with people living on Earth in the fifth millennium, made so by the clever use of recognisable everyday items upgraded, and how matter-of-fact people were. Rooms could be made smaller or larger depending on whether you needed space to entertain friends or to sleep in the bedroom. “Of course, we have to be careful not to drop things or the mechanism jams.” Also, the geography of what remains of inhabitable Earth is clear, and it is frighteningly believable that man would have polluted most of the planet.

Okay, so there I am “magicked” forward – and I do need a magic carpet; most sci-fi/fantasy leaves me cold. I fascinated by Vrail and his struggle to control his gift to read people’s minds and become a truth finder who can trace criminals, save lives, and stay sane! He’s an ordinary young man, no better or worse…

FREE The Truth Finder 24-25 November 2018

The Truth Finder is free this weekend on Amazon’s Kindle. Ususally it’s £1.99 but always free on KU. The paperback is £6.99. You can download it here.

The Truth Finder is the story of Vrail, who can read minds and talk into people’s heads, but his gift can put him in great danger from people who want to control and exploit him. In the fifth millennium, those with gifts have to take extra care. The Earth is struggling to survive after it has been polluted and damaged by wars that have made most of the planet unihabitable.

Here’s my latest review – thank you Sarah Stuart

I fascinated by Vrail and his struggle to control his gift to read people’s minds and become a truth finder who can trace criminals, save lives, and stay sane! He’s an ordinary young man, no better or worse than the average youngster, battered by voices in his head, and the thoughts of others he’d rather not know.

That’s a simple introduction to a very detailed story. Many previous reviewers refer to it as YA, and it would certainly appeal to the teenagers I know, but I neglected all sorts of things I should have been doing to read it and it was a sad moment when I realised all I had left to do was write a review.

Coming soon – The Visualizer (sequel to The Truth Finder).

Book Review: Bea & Bee by Sylva Fae

This is a charming tale about a little girl who would love to have a pet. She makes friends with a bee. Throughout the story she finds similarities between herself and the little bee. The book is well written and beautifully illustrated. An added bonus is some factual information at the end of the book about how to care for an injured bee and what flowers and plants they like. I’d definitely recommend this book for little ones. You can buy the book here or in the US here.

It costs £1.99 on Kindle and £4.00 in paperback. In the U.S. It’s $2.56 on Kindle and $6.50 in paperback.
It would make a great Christmas gift.

Chester Christmas Market 1-2 December 2018

Little Birdhouse Art Organisation are running a Christmas Market in the first weekend in December. It’s at St Michael’s Church, Bridge Street, Chester.

Apart from all the wonderful individual art and craft work, I will be there with all my books. If you’re any where near Chester on 1st and 2nd December, please come and say hello. I’d love to see you and have a chat. My table will be a great place to pick up stocking fillers and small Christmas pressies.
