Hey everyone!!! I just wanted to tell you that currently Amazon is running a deal of 3 months of Kindle Unlimited for absolutely FREE!!! That’s right FREE! Valid until July 31st, 2019.

As an Amazon Affiliate it would build my stats back up if you go through my link to sign up for this completely free deal! No extra charges or anything like that. You will just be doing me a solid but either way I hope you can benefit from this deal regardless where you clickety click. 😆 Anywho, I got Kindle Unlimited with a credit I had last year for 3 months for 99 cents and I loved it. There were so many good ebooks and audio books! I use Text to Speech so make all my books audio due to dyslexia but that’s just another perk of reading books via Kindle or Kindle app! Anyway last year, I barely wanted to move. So I would lay there filled with grief and depression and the Kindle Unlimited membership became handy. Hell, books saved my bacon those days and they are still helping me heal. Anyway, if you love books even if just here and there, check this deal out.

The Keeper by Misty Mount~R&R Promo Blitz



I would like to thank Reads & Reels & Misty Mount for allowing me to be part of this fantabulous tour! I absolutely love all of Misty’s work and can’t wait to get started on The Keeper. So sorry everyone that I had to repost this post! My first one posted came out unfinished! Crazy WP! Anyway, thanks so much again everyone! Have a fantabulous day!❤

The Keeper (The Underground Defenders Book 1) Expected Publication Date:May 28th, 2019 Genre: Mystery/ Suspense Page Count: 230 Pages Publisher: Liminal Books (Between the Lines Publishing) When the Ericksons move home to care for their ailing grandmother, they’re told a stranger has taken up residence in the attic of the sprawling mansion. Upon investigation, the family isn’t sure the tenant is anything more than a figment of old Mrs. Erickson’s imagination—until a mysterious young woman begins to show herself to the family in fleeting, uncanny visits. When unexplained things start happening under the mansion’s roof, suspicions arise as to just who—or what—she is. In the chaos that ensues, the family is forced to make a decision: trust the stranger or band together as a family against her—and their grandmother who’s protecting her.
‘She tried to distract herself by thinking of other things, like the invigorating chill in the atmosphere or the soft crushing of the mushy grass under the thin, flappy shoes, but nothing worked. The feelings and emotions around her were too big to be crowded out by minor sensory input.   Amira was aware of darkness rolling off Dr. Bordell like a smothering fog. She could no longer hear the other two men out here with them. They had either straggled far behind or were being strangely silent. Most likely it was just her and the doctor now traipsing out into nowhere. Would she ever come back?   They only walked a short while longer when the doctor stopped Amira in her tracks. He ripped off her head covering in one violent motion that took several long brown hairs with it. He watched her with a sickening grin as she tried to get her bearings.   Amira’s gaze went straight to the heavens, an immediate escape. It was a cloudy night and she couldn’t locate the moon in the sky, only a glowing veil of clouds in its place and a sugar-sprinkling of stars all around. The tree branches that clawed at the atmosphere were unfamiliar in shape, and she couldn’t find a recognizable landmark anywhere in the inky darkness. . . . The doctor gripped the nape of Amira’s neck and flung her to the ground like an unwanted stray kitten. She tumbled several times from the unnecessary force, kicking up loose soil before coming to rest atop a bare, earthen mound.   “She’s in the ground, you stupid moron,” Dr. Bordell replied and laughed, thoroughly enjoying his moment of revelation, “which is exactly where I’m going to put your mother if you don’t do everything I tell you to from here on out.”   Amira clutched fistfuls of dirt in her palms and let the powder cascade through her open fingers. “No,” she whispered as the soil rained against her bare legs.’

Misty Mount has written since age five and was first published at fourteen. By day she’s a caregiver, wife, and mother to a young son but during the quiet hours of night she becomes a novelist. She resides in Wichita, Kansas.

The Space Between Time by Charlie Laidlaw-R&R Book Tours


Big thanks to R & R Book Tours for having me as a guest for this tour!

Tour Banner

Welcome to the month-long mega tour for Charlie Laidlaw’s newest book, The Space Between Time, due for release on June 20th! There will be fantastic bloggers participating, who will be posting interviews, excerpts, reviews, and other exclusive content! Additionally, there are loads of goodies being given away, so be sure to enter at the bottom!

Book Cover

The Space Between Time Expected Publication Date: June 20th, 2019 Genre: Contemporary Fiction/ Dark Comedy There are more stars in the universe than there are grains of sand on Earth… Emma Maria Rossini appears to be the luckiest girl in the world. She’s the daughter of a beautiful and loving mother, and her father is one of the most famous film actors of his generation. She’s also the granddaughter of a rather eccentric and obscure Italian astrophysicist. But as her seemingly charmed life begins to unravel, and Emma experiences love and tragedy, she ultimately finds solace in her once-derided grandfather’s Theorem on the universe. The Space Between Time is humorous and poignant and offers the metaphor that we are all connected, even to those we have loved and not quite lost. Add to Goodreads

Mum is waiting for me outside the school gates and is surrounded by several other
mothers who, like hyenas, all seem to want to devour her. How do they know who she is, I
wonder? They’re all talking to her at once and Mum is gamely trying to smile and engage in
several simultaneous conversations. Mum, as always, looks like a million dollars. The other
mothers, dressed sensibly in beige, look like loose change collected from underneath the sofa.
Mum sees me and waves, extricates herself from her tormentors, and ushers me quickly
towards her car which is partly parked on the pavement and mostly on a pedestrian crossing.
‘From now on, Emma,’ she immediately says, once we’re safely inside and buckling up
seatbelts, and before she’s even asked me how my first day has been, ‘I will either meet you
further down the road or leave you to walk home. I do not want to go through that again.’ She
looks in the rear-view mirror, just in case the hyenas are snarling and whooping and giving
chase.
It turns out that she’s already been asked to join the Parent-Teacher Association and, being
a parent, has felt obliged to accept. But, in the mêlée outside the school, she’s also been asked
to be honorary chairperson of something else, and didn’t really hear what she was being
asked to be chairperson of, or if she’s said ‘yes’. It happens to her sometimes. Her mind just
goes blank, thoughts and words wafting around her head and then drifting from her ears.
Mum’s worried that she might inadvertently now be in charge of the North Berwick &
District Paedophile Society, or something worse. It turned out that she hadn’t said ‘yes’, but
hadn’t said ‘no’ either, so the Pottery Club assumed that she meant ‘yes’, which amounts to
the same thing. She did attend a couple of their throw-downs, an expression that neither of us
had heard of before, coming home with a well-turned if rather wonky bowl, with only a
couple of small cracks, and decorated with painted flowers nicely arranged in a vase: Mum’s
presidential way of neatly killing two birds with one stone.
From then on, I generally walked home after school.

Description automatically generated

I was born in Paisley, central Scotland, which wasn’t my fault.  That week, Eddie Calvert with Norrie Paramor and his Orchestra were Top of the Pops, with Oh, Mein Papa, as sung by a young German woman remembering her once-famous clown father.  That gives a clue to my age, not my musical taste.

I was brought up in the west of Scotland and graduated from the University of Edinburgh.  I still have the scroll, but it’s in Latin, so it could say anything.

I then worked briefly as a street actor, baby photographer, puppeteer and restaurant dogsbody before becoming a journalist.  I started in Glasgow and ended up in London, covering news, features and politics.  I interviewed motorbike ace Barry Sheene, Noel Edmonds threatened me with legal action and, because of a bureaucratic muddle, I was ordered out of Greece.

I then took a year to travel round the world, visiting 19 countries.  Highlights included being threatened by a man with a gun in Dubai, being given an armed bodyguard by the PLO in Beirut (not the same person with a gun), and visiting Robert Louis Stevenson’s grave in Samoa.  What I did for the rest of the year I can’t quite remember

Surprisingly, I was approached by a government agency to work in intelligence, which just shows how shoddy government recruitment was back then.  However, it turned out to be very boring and I don’t like vodka martini.

Craving excitement and adventure, I ended up as a PR consultant, which is the fate of all journalists who haven’t won a Pulitzer Prize, and I’ve still to listen to Oh, Mein Papa.

I am married with two grown-up children and live in central Scotland. And that’s about it.
