Reviews are essential for unsigned and signed authors alike, so to get a hugely positive one as I recently received from Rose Auburn on her fabulous site, has, well, made my week. It has also made me want to shout loudly about it.

It not only touches my heart, but lifts my desire to keep writing when I get a review that really tunes in to what I am trying to do and this latest one did exactly that.

I have pasted a teaser and then left then link, so you can dive over to read it all and check out Rose’s fabulous site for further tips on great reads.


Books, Bits & Bobs is ostensibly a collection of sixteen short stories. However, the compilation plays with traditional form and short structure with some narratives barely more than a paragraph; others more traditional and one that touches on novella length.

I thought Books, Bits & Bobs was a candid and impressive collection of short musings and tales that makes the reader’s brain work and wonder.
