@burgewords – Instagram post

Thank you @burgewords means the world! 🤩🙏🏻💖🧡
It’s a crime that I’ve only just encountered The Nancys by @rwrmcdonald because its sequel Nancy Business is already out and proud! But this sissy boy who ate all the Agatha Christie he could get as a kid is profoundly impressed and thrilled that he can now see himself in the story, at last! Thanks Rob for signing my copies! Get your hands on these wonderful books!

Author Spotlight

@read.by.the.librarian 💡Author Spotlight 💡

When did you know you wanted to be an Author?
As soon as I wrote my first story at five, it was a ‘What did you do in the holidays?’ and as I had not done that much I wrote a story about going to the beach and being bitten by a crab. I still can see the red star stamp and “Good work” from my teacher. Now, after all this time, I’m wondering if maybe it wasn’t the writing but just the thrill of getting away with it.

@s.v.plittwriter – The Nancys review

Thank you so much @s.v.plittwriter , means the world 🤩🙏🏻💖 And your found family is out there I promise❤️

 

As a queer reader currently without a found family this really brought tears to my eyes. The flawed characters are so loveable, I wanted an uncle Pike and Devon of my own!

My Heart is a Little Wild Thing – Advanced Read

I was lucky to be able to read an advanced reading copy of @ngfeathers MY HEART IS A LITTLE WILD THING – thank you @ultimopress !
BLURB: Patrick has always considered himself a good son. Willing to live his life to please his parents, his sense of duty paramount to his own desires and dreams. But as his mother’s health continues to deteriorate and his siblings remain absent, he finds the ties that bind him to his mother begin to chafe. After an argument leads to a violent act he travels to a familiar country retreat to reflect on what his life could be – and through a chance encounter with a rare animal and an intriguing stranger starts to wonder if perhaps it is not too late to let his heart run wild.
A story about family, love and the cost of freedom, MY HEART IS A LITTLE WILD THING serves as a reminder that we all deserve to pursue our dreams.
MY HEART IS A LITTLE WILD THING will be out 4th May 22
