Day 1 flying With Fire Review Tour

So today Gabby over at What's Beyond Forks kicked off the Flying With Fire review tour with a bang! She says "There are dark and crazy twists with some time travel mixed in, and you just don't know what to expect from one page to the next." ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Head over to her book blog to read her full review!

Another two reviews have come in from the UK & US administrators on the FB page, Claire & Marley. I have posted them below as they don't have their own blogs.

Flying with fire! Another great book from the author Emma Mills. This book is a prequel to the Witchblood series looking a little at Brittany's time at the boarding school, but in this book Brittany isn't the main character, it's a new character called Brooke and I loved this twist and was excited to learn about all the new characters including Brooks love interest Leo. This book had it all and kept me wanting to carry on reading all the way through and I'm hoping that the author continues telling Brooke and Leo's story. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This book has a great story to it. We are introduced to a new character which her story seemingly attaches to another character we met in Witchcraft. In Flying With Fire, we meet an extraordinary girl, Brooke, who is unconscious of the power she can elicit. We travel back in time and into the future with Brooke. We learn that there are certain people working against her and trying to suppress her wonderous power. Brooke fights with all her might to save others and some one who may potentially be a love interest. Emma Mills writes a dark tale compared to her previous books. This book gives you hope that her magnificent writing will develop other dark stories with themes of 
fighting what is right. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Remember that Flying With Fire is on promotion this week and is only 99p /c so grab it now before it goes back full price!

Review Tour and lots of Reading!

I can't quite believe how fast time is flying currently. These last couple of weeks in Sept are the last I'm dedicating to Flying With Fire before I move on. So I have reduced the digital price to just 99p... or cents! If you haven't already bought it grab it quick because it will be going full price again in October.

I have a review tour kicking off on Monday over at 'What Beyond Forks'. For the full list click the 'Tour Schedule' tab above. If you have read the book please leave me an Amazon review. They are the most important thing for indie writers, and we really appreciate them!

Other than juggling life I have been doing a bit of reading over the last few weeks! I have read and thoroughly enjoyed the Divergent series by Veronica Roth. I have also read the Delirium series by Lauren Oliver, and now I've just started Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. Have you read any of these books? What did you think?

Another book I read recently was The Spell of Summer by a fellow indie writer called Dianna Hardy. I loved this book and thoroughly recommend it for a light-hearted romantic read.

Words can change everything, but can they change your destiny?

Meredith is leading a straight-laced life in London with her straight-laced fiancé, determined to forget her reckless, wild-child past. They're about to get married.

Jamie is an old, poetic soul with a broken heart returning home to Cornwall to get his life back in order.

What binds them?

One chance meeting thirteen summers ago; one innocent spell spoken after one perfect night...

And now history is unravelling; the past and present, merging...

Words can change everything, but can they change your destiny?
And in the messy world of magic, what part does love play?
It's summer all over again, but the spell has only just begun.

My Review
I really enjoyed this book; and that was straight after reading The Book Thief (one of my most loved books!) In fact it is the perfect antidote for when you are feeling upset! I immediately fell in love with the two main characters Merri and Jamie. I thought they were believable and realistic. I adored that it was mainly set in beautiful Cornwall; the descriptions were vivid and never too involved. The story itself had just an ounce of magic peppering what is otherwise a contemporary romance. Of all Dianna's books this is my favourite. I heartily recommend you read it the next time you want a lift!

School's Back! I'm Back!

So I hope everyone had a lovely summer? It was our first summer in Somerset and luckily the UK was blessed with amazing weather for once! We managed to take full advantage of our fantastic local outdoor pool, have a couple of day trips down to the Dorset coastline and had a lovely week in the Isle of Wight.

This morning felt very quiet after I dropped the children at school. I have a long list of writing work that needs to be done, but I felt so deflated this morning that I had to get out instead, which is why I'm logging on at 2:30pm... which isn't very helpful when I have to go out for school pick-up in about 45 minutes!

I have been considering writing a Halloween Flying With Fire novella for the end of next month (& I had a great plot line) but I have decided against it as it would follow on from the FWF story and not enough people have downloaded the first book yet to make it viable... So please if you have read and enjoyed Flying With Fire leave me an Amazon review, so I know whether to carry on with it!

With regards to FWF I have instead decided to arrange a short review tour for the end of the month, for all the book bloggers who have read (or are reading FWF) and would like to review. I already have the first week full, but if you are a blogger and would like a review copy and could read by the first week in October, please get in contact. If you are yet to read FWF I will be reducing the price for the duration of the blog tour.
