Telephone Road by Ann Swann / #SpotlightPost #BlogTour @RRBookTours1 @ann_swann




Marlena caught the eye of one of the richest, hottest guys on campus, Preston. But when her attention shifts, and she falls in love with a hometown boy, Jimmy, she finds out that Preston is also deeply disturbed.

What follows is a life-changing evening out on Telephone Road, and Marlena knows she will never be the same when she takes matters into her own hands.

Justice has a new meaning. It’s called revenge.

Escaping Demons by Killian Wolf / #SpotlightPost #PublicationDayPush @rararesources @Killian_Wolf22




One phone call landed me the perfect job. Too bad it didn’t come with life insurance.

I didn’t think this job would be anything special. Sure, the first phone call was weird, and yeah, maybe it wasn’t the smartest idea to come to someone’s house before I met them in person, but Dax seemed nice. All he wanted was a caretaker for his sick father.

Oh, and an exorcist for the spirits haunting his family’s estate. Now he’s left me alone with his father, and the ghosts know my name. Caring for an old man with dementia, I can do. Fighting evil spirits? That’s way above my pay grade.

But Dax has disappeared so I have to learn on my own or both Orlando and I might not live to see tomorrow…

Julia was only trying to help but has she become drawn into a web of mystery that she can’t escape? 


Book Trailer




Boy meets girl. They fall in love. They get married. Fairy tale, right? Well, yes, but fairy tales do not really exist, do they?

Some people are a god-sent gift or so they seem, but it’s not all gold that shines. They can change from angel to demon and back again in the blink of an eye. 

Where does that leave you? Should you stay or should you go? Both options terrify you, but a decision has to be made, or will someone else make the decision for you…?

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It went through it like there was no tomorrow. 

I loved the way the story is being told through the eyes of several characters which gives us different perspectives.

I adored the ending… 5 stars.

My Travels With a Dead Man by Steve Searls / #Interview #BlogTour @rararesources @StevenDBT



Jane Takako Wolfsheim learns she can alter time and space after meeting a charismatic stranger named Jorge Luis Borges.

Inextricably she falls for Borges. Soon, however Borges’ lies and emotional abuse, and nightmares about a demonic figure, “the man in black,” nearly drive Jane mad. After her parents are murdered, Jane flees with Borges. Both the ghost of haiku master, Basho, and the Daibutsu of Kamakura, a statue of Buddha that appears in her dreams, offer her cryptic advice. Unable to trust anyone, Jane must find the strength to save herself, her unborn child, and possibly the future of humanity.




– When and where do you prefer to write?

At my desk in the morning after breakfast with sun shining through the window, but id I’m bumping up against a deadline, I’ll write anytime, day or night. That’s for fiction, however. Blog posts often come to me on the spur of the moment, and I’ll write them out in a rush, which can have its advantages if the subject is topical, but also a downside, as I don’t spend much time editing them before posting.

The same applies to poetry, which was once the only thing I wrote.  I still write poems spontaneously these days, usually after reading online poems by people I follow on Facebook, but not as often as I did when I began writing poetry following my early retirement due to my autoimmune disorder.

– Do you have a certain ritual?

I’ve never really thought about that. I used to get a coffee each morning to wake up, but I’ve stopped all caffeine since the coronavirus pandemic started, except for the occasional green tea. So, the answer is no, I suppose.

– Is there a drink of some food that keeps you company while you write?

I often forget to eat or drink when I’m writing, especially when it’s going well. I’ve been known to write straight through lunch at times and suddenly look at the clock as see it’s already late afternoon, and I realize I haven’t eaten anything for hours.

– What is your favourite book?

It’s impossible for me to pick just one. I’ll just list a few books I like to re-read on a regular basis:

Lord of the Rings (JRR Tolkien)

Mrs. Dalloway (Virginia Woolf)

Rebecca (Daphne du Maurier)

Blind Assassin (Margaret Atwood)

The Rings of Saturn (WG Sebald)

Blood Meridian (Cormac McCarthy)

Dune (Frank Herbert)

The Dispossessed (Ursula K. LeGuin)

The Stranger (Albert Camus)

Slaughterhouse-Five (Vonnegut)

Labyrinths (Jorge Luis Borges)

And that’s just fiction. Ask me a different day, and I’ll probably name a bunch of other books.

– Do you consider writing a different genre in the future?

I don’t consider myself a writer in any particular genre. “My Travels With a Dead Man,” is a multi-genre book in my view, a literary novel combining elements of magical realism, fantasy, coming of age, science fiction, romance, mystery and the paranormal. I write intuitively, without an outline or a plan when I begin, so it depends on where the characters are taking me, and what they need to tell their story.

– Do you sometimes base your characters on people you know?

Yes and no. None of my characters are based entirely on anyone I know, but some have traits similar to people I crossed paths with.  I never start out writing a character with the idea that he or she is a stand in for any specific person. I have included autobiographical elements in some of my characters, mostly in the short stories I’ve written.

– Do you take a notebook everywhere in order to write down ideas that pop up?

No. I should though.

– Which genre do you not like at all?

I don’t think in terms of disliking any genre. What bothers me is a poorly written book, with flat or stereotypical characters and a predictable plot, regardless of genre.

– If you had the chance to co-write a book. Whom would it be with?

Wow, that’s tough.  Writing is such a personal thing for me. It would have to be someone who shares my vision for the book we’d be working on together.  Also, I would need someone who respects my work enough to listen to my ideas.

– If you should travel to a foreign country to do research, which one would you chose and why?

With my chronic autoimmune disorder, travelling is difficult.  There are many countries I wish I could visit, but in terms of research for a book, the country would depend upon the book’s setting.  I’ve only travelled to Japan and Mexico in my life, and never for the purpose of doing research. More than likely, a trip to another country would spur me to think of stories that could be set there, rather than choosing a place first and then going there for research purposes.  All that said, I’d love to visit Italy, Spain. India and New Zealand (the last because my daughter spent a semester there and tells me she’s going to take me to New Zealand at some as yet to be determined date).  But that has nothing to do with any literary aspirations.

Blood Ties by Peter Taylor-Gooby / #Interview #BlogTour @LoveBooksGroup @PeterT_G @matadorbooks



Ritchie’s life is shadowed by the death of his wife, Cat, in a car accident twenty-two years previously. He was the driver. He loves his children – Nic, who is bi-polar and often impulsive, and Jack. Both are active in the campaign to welcome asylum-seekers and refugees to Britain. His life comes to a crisis as he realises how much his children despise his trade in advertising and how much the loss of Cat still means to them all.

Ritchie abandons his career but achieves new success in driving Britain’s treatment of refugees up the political agenda. This earns him the respect of his children but brings him to the attention of Makepeace, the populist Home Secretary. Nic, his daughter, strives to show she can overcome her disorder. She infiltrates a people-trafficking gang but is arrested as a criminal. Makepeace uses this to blackmail Ritchie to help him in his political schemes. Ritchie is horrified to discover that his task is to sell the reintroduction of forced labour, modern slavery, to the public. As a result he is once again rejected by his children.

Ritchie has reached rock bottom. He is desolate but believes he can outsmart Makepeace. Blood Ties shows how he finally resolves the situation, embraces the causes his children hold dear and reunites his family.




1. Do you always take a book/e-reader wherever you go?

Yes – but the book is often my note-book which I fill up with sketches, characters and situations, even odd phrases and turns of speech. I end up using about four per cent of them.

2. Say someone asks if they can use your name in a book. Would you rather be the ‘good one’ or the ‘bad one’?

Difficult – who is most sympathetically presented? If I’m in a novel I’d like the reader to understand me, my desires and my fears, what drives me on. I’d like them to grasp why I behave as I do, no matter whether I’m good or bad.

3. Where can I find you when you are reading?

If I’m lucky it’s a shed at the bottom of the garden on a sunny day, but often it’s on a commuter train or in a corner at work.

4. Where can I find you when you are not writing/reading?

Talking to someone, walking round the countryside.

5. Can you walk past a bookstore without going inside?

Only under duress. It’s the small independent bookstores I love, you never know what you are going to find.

6. What are you most proud of?

It has to be my latest novel “Blood Ties” because I feel I did what I wanted to do in it (but I know there are scenes that could do with more work, not saying which ones!)

7. What goes through your mind when you hold your new book in your hands for the first time?

Triumph – I did this! – mingled with fear – “Little book you are going forth into the world. I do hope people are kind to you”.

8. What piece of advice would you give to aspiring writers?

Write! Write as much as you can, just think of a character and take them for a walk that ends up in the supermarket or riding a motorbike or meeting the love of their life. Also talk! And make sure you talk to other writers.

9. Who would you like/have liked to interview?

So many! Can I have Toni Morrison – she goes straight to the heart of things, and Byron – rich, privileged, he lived an interesting life and made such an awful mess of it.

10. When and where do you prefer to write?

Wherever I can – it’s not so much the place it’s the ideas. What I love about it is that moment when you have in your head something that no-one else has ever had, you don’t know why or where it came from, but it’s your job to try to get it onto paper.

About the author

I enjoy talking to my children, holidays, hill-walking and riding my bike. I’ve worked on adventure playgrounds, as a teacher, as an antique dealer and in a social security office in Newcastle. Before that I spent a year on a Gandhian Ashram in Vijayawada, supporting myself as assistant editor on a local English-language newspaper. In my day job I’m an academic but I believe that you can only truly understand the issues that matter to people through your feelings, your imagination and your compassion. That’s why I write novels. My first novel, The Baby Auction, 2017, is a love story set in a fantasy world where the only rule is the law of the market. That someone should help another because they care for them simply doesn’t make sense to the citizens of Market World, any more that auctioning babies might to us. My second, Ardent Justice, 2018, is a crime story set in the world of high finance and city fat-cats, where money rules, but greed can trip even the most successful. My third, Blood Ties, 2020, is about the ties of love in a troubled family, and the bonds of debt that chain illegal immigrants to people-traffickers, and how they can be broken through self-sacrifice. I hope you enjoy them.

False Front by Debbie Baldwin / #Review @debbaldwinstl


Bishop Security Series, Book 1

Emma Porter is not real. She is an accomplished young woman, living a fulfilling life in New York City, working for an online news agency, and striving toward normalcy. The truth, however, is something else. She was once Emily Webster, a child of privilege, and the twenty-first century Lindbergh Baby. Her high-profile, unexplained abduction and subsequent rescue led to a childhood of paranoia and preparedness, as her kidnapper remained at large and still on the hunt. With her father’s guidance and resources, Emily became Emma Porter, living each day in her new identity, vigilant and unattached. Unattached but for the seemingly unbreakable tether that connects her to the man who, as a young boy, lived next door. 

Like Emma, Nathan Bishop is not what he seems. Preparing to helm his family’s defense contracting company, Nathan is better known for his womanizing and reckless behavior than his business acumen. His striking image peppers the pages of society tabloids and police blotters, but beneath the facade of a rake, lurks a warrior. When an arms dealer procures a lethal bioweapon and is rumored to be selling it on U.S. soil, Nathan and his team must use every resource at their disposal to stop the threat. 

With danger closing in, fate, once again, puts Emma in Nathan’s path, and the two must determine if the weathered bond between them is enough to find the truth behind their false fronts.




When the author contacted me she was certain I was going to love the book. I can only imagine how it must feel to give your ‘baby’ to someone and hope they love it as much as you do. I, for one, am not someone who likes to disappoint anyone and it made me a bit anxious to start reading it.

Well, ‘mama’ Debbie, I liked your story a lot. Some parts were maybe a bit confusing but they were explained later on. It kept me wondering what was going on and made me want to go on reading. I can be frustrating but good things happen to those who wait. 😉

Some guys are really tough. They are like a brick wall, but when love is concerned they melt as much as anyone else. Some girls are soft, but never underestimate them.

I enjoyed the mixture of hard-boiled scenes, sexy ones and those filled with love. If this concoction has your favorite ingredients too, you really should check it out.

4,5 stars.

Thank you, Debbie Baldwin

Dangerous Games by Gillian Godden / #Extract #BlogTour @LoveBooksGroup @GGodden



Annette Lambrianu is young, blonde, beautiful and bored. Life on the family vineyard with her husband and young son, Antonias, is not what she had expected. Yearning for excitement, she flees to London with her lover and the boy, only to find out the streets are not paved with gold.

Since being taken from his home by his mother in the middle of the night, fighting for survival is all Antonias Lambrianu has ever known. He soon learns that money is power and sets his sights on what he sees as a better future. When his past finally catches up with him, it unexpectedly opens up new opportunities, but new threats come hand-in-hand with them.

Antonias is determined that he will emerge triumphant, but there’s jeopardy everywhere and the stakes are high. Everyone, it seems, is playing dangerous games … Antonias most of all.

This is a tale of selfishness, cruelty, love and betrayal. But who will be the ultimate winner?

Dangerous Games is the origin story of gangster Tony Lambrianu. Book two in the series, Nasty Business, will be published in July 2019, and Francesca – available now – covers the next stage of his journey




Carlos had noticed Annette hanging around, her long blonde hair swinging around her shoulders making her stand out from the rest. He had watched her serving the wine and glancing in his direction.

‘You English, si?’ he had asked her one day, daring to speak to the boss’s wife and at the same time breaking the ice with an innocent question.

‘Yes, I’m from London,’ she had said, and blushed.

He had laughed with her and the others at the tables, calling her the ‘queen’, because only the queen lived in London, and here she was serving the wine.

Carlos had flirted with her, and she with him, whenever possible, although she always ignored him when her husband or the foreman were around, and especially when Miriam’s eyes followed her like a hawk.

Annette hated her mother-in-law and resented the way she monopolized her son, Antonias. She had to admit that, in some respects, Miriam was a good woman who wanted the best for her family, but Annette wanted more than just to be a wife and mother, buried in the back of beyond.

She wanted to go into Naples and Rome and enjoy the clubs and the nightlife Italy had to offer. Annette had expected life to be so different.

She had met Marias on holiday, and it had been such a whirlwind romance she had decided to stay longer. Seeing the vineyard in all its glory, and realizing the wealth it carried with it, had make it seem too good an opportunity to miss.

Miriam had never trusted her, she knew Annette wasn’t happy with the way things had turned out. Marias worked the vines all day, and when they were able to go out, they did, but then Antonias came along and everything changed.

Annette had been expected to drop in to a family routine of looking after little Antonias, and having more children to follow him. She had soon grown bored with it all.

It didn’t matter that Marias told her that one day Antonias would be a rich man and inherit everything; Annette wanted her share now, and never mind Antonias.

And then she had seen Carlos, who seemed to ease the boredom. He made her smile again

About the author

My name is Gillian Godden an Indie author and a full-time NHS Keyworker at a local inner-city medical centre in East Hull, East Yorkshire, England. My patients come from all sectors of society and no two days are ever the same. My duty of care is to my patients and during the recent pandemic, a lot of frightened and lonely people have relied upon us at the medical centre to offer guidance and support. This year is the 72nd anniversary of the NHS and we do everything we can to support outpatients when they need us.

When I come home I like to wind down and writing is my escape from the mental stresses of my day. My job is not a 9 to 5 job and I work to support my patients when they need me so my days can be long.

The medical team at the surgery work together to support all our patients during their time of worry and need.

On a more personal note, I grew up in a large family and am the youngest of 7 siblings. Over the years we have lost touch as life moves on. I lived in London for over 30 years and during this time I worked in various London stripper pubs and venues. I have a grown-up son who now lives and works in London as a haematology lab technician. He has been working on the COVID 19 testing and this has been a worrying time for us as a family.

Once he left for University 5 years ago I had more time on my hands I was encouraged to write a short story by a local library book competition. First prize was a P&O cruise and 2nd prize was £50, I lost to a pigeon fancier and an addicted crocheter.

My NHS colleagues supported my writing and encouraged me to continue to write, however being a little green and naive I went with a Vanity publisher, much to my cost. This experience did give me a platform to showcase my first book Francesca on Amazon and in the online book clubs. I was totally overwhelmed by the response and people messaged me via social media wanting to know more about the characters and how Tony Lambrianu grew up and became so successful in the London Gangland crime world.

To answer their questions I went backwards in time and wrote Dangerous games and Nasty business. These also were successfully received by my now increasing readership, so in order to complete the series, I wrote Dirty Dealings.

My readers are still interested in the characters throughout my books and asked for more information on the lives of Julie and Ralph Gold, so as I do everything I can to support my patients in my NHS job I wanted to do the same for my readers, so I am now writing Gold, the story of Julie and Ralph. Although this is standalone book readers who have read all my other books will soon be able to find out more about Julie and Ralphs life and how they met

The Wife’s House by Arianne Richmonde / #Review #BooksOnTour @bookouture @A_Richmonde



The perfect house or the perfect lie?

The moment my husband showed me Cliffside—a sleek and modern glass home perched on the edge of the jagged Big Sur clifftops—I fell in love. And right there and then I made a pact with myself. I am never leaving this house.

But when my husband was killed on the perilous roads leading up to the house, weeks after we moved in, I had a decision to make—leave the home I love and start a new life or stay and shut myself off from the world? I am never leaving this house.

As I pieced together my shattered life, my mind began to play tricks on me. Footsteps along the beach, leading to my home, then blood-red flowers left on my doorstep with a note that read Looking at you. So I retreated back to the safety of my glass refuge once again. I am never leaving this house.

But now, as I stare out of the towering windows of my perfect home, I know there is someone out there staring back. I know that they are watching my every move, waiting to make me pay for my past mistakes.




I have said if several times before but I have to repeat myself once again: What a great book!

Straight from the start there were some people that I did not trust and the whole atmosphere throughout the book is downright creepy.

We are confronted once again with the fact that lonely people are easy targets for manipulators and I have to admit the manipulation was simply subtle in the beginning.

This story is a case of the main character being to trusting to see through what’s going on and in my head I was yelling: ‘Don’t you see what they are doing???!!!’ But of course that is what makes a story a good one too.

Although, in general, the story can be compared to a slowly flowing river it suddenly turns into a white water one.

I loved this book with its great structure and surprising revelations. 5 stars.
