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.

Here’s a review by Eric Lahti
5.0 out of 5 stars Read minds at your own peril

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Penny Luker’s The Truth Finder is a YA story about a young man far in the Earth’s future who can read minds and communicate telepathically. In this world there are others with similar gifts such as the ability to create mirages of sorts. Throw in a pinch of political intrigue, a shot of coming-of-age story, and a dash of magical swans and you have a very rich YA story that avoids the traditional pitfalls of talking down to its audience. Our protagonist, Vrail, is not out to save the world from the shadowy forces of danger. He’s not the most powerful person in the world. He’s, arguably, not even the most powerful person in his village. And that right there is a powerful way to tell a story; rather than making the main character so amazing that he becomes a charicature or something to strive for but never attain, Luker tells us a story that we can fit ourselves into. It has a lot of moving parts – coming-of-age, political intrigue, hints of things that started normal but became magical – but Penny pulls it most of the way together.

I say most of the way because there are some dangling threads left at the end. The primary story is told, but bear in mind the subtitle of the book Future Earth Book 1. It simply wouldn’t be proper to finish everything at the end of this. Besides, if the whole story was told there’d be no reason for a sequel and I’d personally like to see more of the story. Here’s to looking forward to Future Earth Book 2.

I hope you enjoy this book. The sequel is well on its way!

Coming Soon – New Poetry Book

poetry 3 front final 2

We’ve all experienced love, in one form or another, well this book explores how love affects us, by using lots of different forms of poetry. Love can bring great joy, but also pain. We experience the unconditional love we have for our children or parents, and the worry if they are not happy. In today’s world we sometimes love objects. They can become important in our lives. Love can even turn to obsession.

This book is poetry that explores the topic of love from many angles, but the poetry is accessible and easy to enjoy. I’m just awaiting the final proof copy before it’s released.

There are over thirty brand new poems for you to explore. Watch this space.
