It has been quite a learning curve for me – my first compilation/anthology!

The formatting was a challenge. There are lots and lots of photographs in this collection. The majority are observational photos I’ve taken during allowed walks of all manner of things including concrete frogs hidden below bridges…. and my thoughts about why this fellow is there… So mysterious…

There are also lovely kitty photos from my good friend Samantha Murdoch… Now that’s a face! Poor Charlie, kitty, what is the matter?

As well as fetching author photos… and masked up photos from myself, Beaton, and the Masks4NHS venture.

Anyway, it is a true account of my observations, and the thoughts of authors, bloggers and creatives from the UK, US, Canada, Italy and Zimbabwe.

Wherever we are, we are all feeling it. This time unites us in a way that we could never have imagined.

Stay safe and well.

Hi. Welcome to my blog: M J Mallon - Kyrosmagica Publishing. A blog about magic, books, writing, laughter, and much more! I'm a debut writer, my first YA fantasy novel The Curse of Time - Book 1 - Bloodstone is set in Cambridge. I write book reviews on my blog and on Goodreads. I have a penchant for travel and have relatives in far flung places, Australia, Malaysia, and Singapore, (my birthplace.) I grew up in in Bonnie Scotland, in Edinburgh, and now live in Cambridge. I love sunny, hot places, particularly Rome, Venice, Portugal, Barcelona, and I forgot to mention the sun drenched beaches of the Caribbean, how could I? I am lucky to have been blessed with two lovely daughters and a husband who I fondly refer to in this blog as my black sheep. Family joke! With my passion for travel, culture, beautiful beaches, good food, books, theatre, writing, and humour, I hope to keep you entertained. I'm loving every minute of this creative journey, please join me.

  1. So exciting, Marje! You’ve worked so hard on this, I’m thrilled and delighted to have my piece featured alongside so many wonderful contributions and alongside such talent. And I love my mask! I’ve shared on Twitter and FB and linked in my blog post at The Summerhouse, out shortly. And of course, I’ve pre-ordered, can’t wait! Big hugs, you deserve it! <3

      1. It’s wonderful, Marje. I’m so thrilled too, thank you again for this amazing opportunity. I’ll be keeping an eye out for launch date etc! Hugs back to you…and as always, keep safe! <3 xxx

  2. Woohoo, looking good Marje. Thrilled to be part of your project. We’re set for Juy 24th! Should be a fun twist doing the Q and A for a twist. 🙂 <3

  3. This looks great and you all got it together so quickly! Will certainly pre-order and if you ever do anything similar and would like a contribution from me, please let me know.

      1. Not sure what the FB promo group is? But by all means add me if you think its appropriate for me to there, not having contributed to the book. Must warn you I’m not terribly active on social media, as I’m trying to prioritise writing…Have pre ordered the book.

      2. Hi Jessica, no problem, its mainly for contributors but a few others are members too. Small, friendly private group. Thank you for pre ordering. Appreciate it. 🙂
