It’s launch day for Do What You Love and today I am featured by two lovely blogging author friends, Ritu and Adele!
This is from Ritu… who is chatting to me over a book and brew… and sharing her review of Do What You Love.
Ritu: I’m back with a second edition! Today, I am thrilled to welcome an old blogging and writing friend who I have met in person. None other than the lovely Marjorie Mallon, one of my blogging sis…
Pop over to Ritu’s blog to read at source: Book and a Brew with Ritu – Do What You Love by @Marjorie_Mallon by #NewRelease #BookReview | But I Smile Anyway…
Oh what a lovely book, filled with poetic gems and beautiful prose!
I felt a keen connection to the poems about her daughters and the autumn trees. Autumn is one of my favourite seasons.Ritu Bhathal
A lovely book with a personal touch.
And from Adele, a fellow Scottish lass, a lovely celebratory post and a review of Do What You Love. https://firefly465.wordpress.com/2022/11/25/dowhatyoulove/
I’ve known Adele a long time and Adele and I have collaborated in anthologies together, and Ritu and Adele both contributed to my lockdown project, This Is Lockdown. Even though I have not met Adele in person, I feel as if I know her. I recommend you connect with both of these wonderful authors.
The mix of poetry, flash fiction and photography is something M J Mallon does very well. She combines them as part of the journey and the adventure she leads us on. She is a very skilled author and this newest release is a joy to traverse.
I loved how her favourite poem from the collection is about my home from home Edinburgh…Adele Marie Park
It calls me
this Scottish City
Edinburgh’s dark shadows
perfect time and place
