Fresh off the Starship


I'm delighted to welcome Ann Crawford to the Flight Deck today, to tell us some more about herself and her book Fresh Off The Starship - a romantic comedy, which as it says on the cover is 'out of this world' - so appropriate for this blog, don't you think! 😊 HL: . OK, I just have to ask you Ann - Where did the idea for the book come from AC: I moved to Kansas—from the Northern California coast and after growing up in New York—thirteen years ago to marry my husband and be a stepmom to his two wonderful kids. I’d been through Kansas a few times as I crisscrossed the country over the years. He grew up halftime in Wichita and halftime on a farm in Western Kansas. When he took me out there, I fe...

Review of Crossline


I featured this on 27th March, and having read the book, this is my review, posted on Amazon and Goodreads. Crossline by Russ Colchamiro My rating: 4 of 5 stars This is a highly original and entertaining science fiction novel, When Marcus Powell takes Taurus Enterprises revolutionary space vehicle ‘Crossline’ on a test-flight, he just can’t resist pushing her a bit further than he probably should have, with astounding consequences. I enjoyed the middle of the book rather more than the first and final parts, finding the change of P.O.V. in the finale a bit abrupt. I found I identified with Buddy, and found him a really interesting character. The climax was exciting and satisfying and I found ...

The Circle of conspiracy by Cas Peace - Spotlight and #Giveaway


I'm thrilled to be part of fellow Brit, Cas Peace's book tour. I love fantasy, adventure and horses and really enjoyed the Artesans of Albia Trilogy. Sullyan is a brilliant heroine, I've rarely been able to empathise with a female lead character in the way I did with her. She is such a strong, courageous, charismatic person, and yet very vulnerable and sensitive beneath the tough exterior. The other characters are all excellently written too, including the horses. I'm sure I will enjoy The Circle of Conspiracy just as much as I did Artesans. Congratulations on the release of this new boxset Cas. Now let's find out more about the book: Nine months have passed since Brynne Sullyan helped forge...

"Try that again and I'll blow your head off..."#Book Hook' from Beloved Enemy - #MFRWHooks


Apologies for not posting last week, I was up to my ears in stardust (or something similar). It was Beloved Enemy's  Birthday yesterday, so I thought I'd post another 'hook' from that. (It carries on the confrontation between the two main protagonists from last time.) I'm still eagerly awaiting the audio files which hopefully should be completed soon. Each book in the trilogy has a hero and heroine with there own 'happy ever after' but each story features some of the same characters and a link to the starship Destiny (I may not be able to comment much tomorrow but I promise I'll try to visit all the 'BookHook blogs and comment on as many as I can in the next few days.)

"Yes, I know who you are." #Book Hook' from Beloved Enemy - #MFRWHooks


I'm posting another excerpt from the third book in the Destiny Trilogy, the award winning 'Beloved Enemy',  which will soon be joining the first two books Starquest and Children of the Mist as an audio book, as well as in eBook and paperback. Each book has a hero and heroine with there own 'happy ever after' but each story features some of the same characters and a link to  the starship Destiny EXCERPT (carries on a little further from my first excerpt too weeks ago.) “The name suits you.” It did not sound like a compliment. “I am Kerry Marchant.” “Yes, I know who you are.” She ignored his quizzical look. “As I said earlier, don’t get any ideas. This ‘cat’ has claws.” “I don’t doubt it.” She...

I'm still here!


Hi folks Many apologies for my long absence from this blog - I've been really busy with all sorts of 'real life' things and a couple of visits to the hospital - nothing too serious but it all takes time and I've sadly neglected the blog. Anyway, I'd like to wish you a very belaed  Happy New Year. Just a couple of pictures - a nearby Stately Home in the winter sunshine and this one is my dog Choccy enjoying the snow, which only lasted a few days but was fun while we had it. I haven't been idle with my writing though, I've been busy trying to finish my current Work In Progress which is a ghost story set in Wales. I've been sadly neglecting it but am now about half way through. For more informa...

Eileen Troemel Author of the Wayfarer Series


I'm really pleased to welcome Eileen Troemel to the Flight Deck today, to tell us more about her  writing and her  Wayfarer Series. I just have to ask this, Elieen - what do you do for fun when not writing?   Crochet - I'm a nut about this.  I've crocheted since I was 12 and usually ended up making my own pattern.  This led to me publishing these patterns.  I used to enjoy crocheting too - but now I don't have time, unfortunately, but I've checked out yur patterns and they're gorgeous. When did you start writing?   I was eight and in third grade the first time I wrote a story.  I always wanted to do something with writing but was too practical to jump in when I was young to be a writer.  I w...
