Excerpt from Wolfe Manor

“The King of Swords shows a righteous man. He will sacrifice himself for the good of his family. The last card is the Tower. This represents overcoming that in the past which holds you back, the breaking of chains and the crumbling of old ways.” She smoked and with her other hand she rubbed her temple.

Laurence opened his mouth to speak, but the door crashed inward with a determined push of energy. An invisible guest entered with a rush of wind. Fianna screamed.

Miriam got to her feet. “Get out of my house.” She ran towards the kitchen cupboard, opened it and took out a glass jar. Once opened she sprinkled the contents around the room. “Get out!”

“Laurence, what’s happening?” Fianna said, gripping his arm so hard, he winced in pain. The pain enabled him to focus on what attacked the cottage. A wind sprung up from nowhere. It battered the tree limbs against the window. A vase of flowers levitated in mid-air, remaining for a moment before they sped as fast as a bullet towards Miriam. They smashed against the cupboard, missing her by an inch. Cupboard doors banged opened and slammed shut as if they played a demented symphony.

Fianna gaped at what was happening around her. Laurence took her hand away from his arm. “Fianna, listen,” he shouted above the noise. “This thing is here because of you. Command it to leave.” She shook her head. “It’s attacking Miriam. You can stop it. Command it to leave,” he said. But, she couldn’t move, her whole body had become a wobble of shakes and fear. He gazed at her then kissed her forehead.

 “Okay. I’d only do this for you.” He left her side and stood in the middle of the room where plates executed a macabre dance above him. He flung his arms out to the side of his body. “Hey. Demon,” he shouted, and the chaos stopped for a second. “Yes. You know me. I remember and so do you. Leave or I’ll do what I did years ago.” A howl of anguish echoed around the small cottage. It ended in a deep throated-growl. The plates dropped and crashed. The door shut itself with a vicious slam that vibrated bones and teeth.

Miriam turned towards him, her hair as wild as the mess of objects, the jar still held in her hand. “Why did that thing do your bidding?” They stared at each other, frozen in the moment until the sound of sobbing fractured them. Fianna sat at the table with her head on her arms and sobbed, her body shaking, convulsing with the aftermath of terror.

“I’ll explain later. Cleanse the room,” Laurence said.

Meet the Author

     Fantasy and horror writer, Adele Marie Park originally hails from the Orkney islands. Rousay is a small, but archaeological important island, dubbed “The Egypt of The North.” The oral tradition of passing down stories fired the young Adele’s imagination with tales of trolls, faeries, sea monsters, witches, ghosts, and seals who could change into humans. The landscape of the island fascinated her as moorland hills swept down through green fields to the shores of secluded beaches, where black volcanic rocks might be a troll or a sleeping giant.

     Reading the Hobbit at an early age inspired her and in her teens she turned to Stephen King, James Herbert, Anne Rice and Storm Constantine to appease a mind hungry to delve into the paranormal. Throughout her life she never gave up writing but it was an ongoing medical condition which forced her to give up work that began her passion to publish her writing for others to read.

      Genres may come and go, but Adele’s writing encompasses a solidity which does not change; the overcoming of obstacles in one’s life, love, death, grief and pain all infused with those supernatural elements that one sees out the corner of the eye or feels when one is alone in the house at night and a floorboard creaks.

Advanced readers comments:

‘Lockdown Innit is a wonderful collection of predominantly free verse poetry on all kinds of themes experienced during the author’s third lockdown. I am sure many of the pieces will resonate with readers who have also experienced humanities frustrating behaviours during this pandemic. The discarded masks rolling down the roads and the impact of this on wildlife in the future when landfills are filled, and oceans invariably get full of them is certainly something that has crossed my mind. (Simply cutting off the side strings from the masks before throwing disposable ones away could make a big difference so they don’t get tangled on wildlife!) I’ve also had my fair share of dealing with drivers filled with road rage, presumably from the stress! The varied mood and tone of the pieces is equally matched with the lovely presentation and wonderful splashes of humour. Emotive and descriptive language is employed to engage our senses and of course my favourite piece is probably ‘The Face.’ Making this a highly enjoyable collection and one I have no doubt in recommending.’

Sarah Northwood, Author and Poet.

‘An intricate mix of observations from the author about how the pandemic has brought change. Some welcome, some not so much. A thought provoking read.’

Lizzie Chantree. (Full review to come soon.)

The Little Ice Cream Shop By The Sea – Lizzie Chantree – #New #Release #Romance

It is my great pleasure to welcome the lovely Lizzie Chantree to my blog today with her new book.

The little ice cream shop by the sea, by Lizzie Chantree
Book link: viewbook.at/IceCreamShopByTheSea

Book blurb:
From the international bestselling author of If you love me, I’m yours, Ninja School
Mum and Babe Driven.


Genie’s family is in crisis. Their seafront business is failing with the loss of Genie’s grandmother and her legendary ice cream flavours. Genie is determined to be the one to save her family’s heritage, but suddenly her mother wants to sell to developers and leave their shared history behind.


Buying the business and taking on a sixty-eight year old business partner, Ada, with a mysterious past and a gorgeous but distracting grandson, Genie sets out to prove her parents wrong.


Ada’s grandson, Cal, wants to protect his gran from ‘pensioner persuader’, Genie, but soon realises that living in a little seaside town and away from the paparazzi in Hollywood can actually give him time to heal. Hiding in a seafront business with its fiery owner and working as kitchen staff, is the only way he can think of to keep his ex-Hollywood glamour-puss, gran from harm.


But his meddling might also ruin Ada’s second chance at love. 

Hiring a private detective and learning about Genie’s parent’s past makes Cal regret his own impulsiveness. The information he has unearthed could destroy their blossoming romance and turn Genie’s world upside down.


Genie soon discovers that friends can become enemies and your closest family can have lied to you for your whole life.

Launch of Black Rose – Pete Adams #new #release

I’m pleased to welcome Pete Adams to my blog today.

He has just released his new book: Black Rose.

Black Rose – book 1 of the Larkin’s Barkin’ series: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Black-Rose-Midsummer-Nights-Chutzpah/dp/B08VBH5TSP/

Bio:

Pete Adams is an architect with a practice in Portsmouth, UK, and from there he has, over forty years, designed and built buildings across England and Wales.  Pete took up writing after listening to a radio interview of the writer Michael Connolly whilst driving home from Leeds. A passionate reader, the notion of writing his own novel was compelling, but he had always been told you must have a mind map for the book; Jeez, he could never get that.

                Et Voila, Connolly responding to a question, said he never plans a book, and starts with an idea for chapter one and looks forward to seeing where it would lead. Job done, and that evening Pete started writing, and the series, Kind Hearts and Martinets, was on the starting blocks. That was some eight years ago, and hardly a day has passed where Pete has not worked on his writing, and currently, is halfway through his tenth book, has a growing number of short stories, one, critically acclaimed and published by Bloodhound, and has written and illustrated a series of historical nonsense stories called, Whopping Tales.

                Pete describes himself as an inveterate daydreamer, and escapes into those dreams by writing crime thrillers with a thoughtful dash of social commentary. He has a writing style shaped by his formative years on an estate that re-housed London families after WWII, and his books have been likened to the writing of Tom Sharpe; his most cherished review, “made me laugh, made me cry, and made me think”.

                Pete lives in Southsea with his partner, and Charlie the star-struck Border terrier, the children having flown the coop, and has 3 beautiful granddaughters who will play with him so long as he promises not to be silly.

Books:

7 books published to date, described as “Crime thrillers that will make you laugh, cry and think”

Kind Hearts and Martinets 5 book Series: 

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Kind-Hearts-Martinets-5-Book/dp/B07SBZL6X8/

Road Kill – book 1 of the DaDa Detective Agency:

 https://www.amazon.co.uk/Road-Kill-Duchess-Frisian-Detective-ebook/dp/B087Z5QNTZ/

Dead No More – book 1 of the Rhubarb papers series – due out in a few months.

Rite Judgement – book 2 in DaDa Detective Agency series – out later in the year.

I have also just contracted 3 different book with my publisher – Whopping Tales:

“The imaginary is what tends to become real.” – Andre Breton

WHOPPING TALES

8 years ago my first granddaughter was born. In her first year I wrote and illustrated a story for her, a Whopping Tale. Two more followed and I resolved to get them published when she was 8 and, I’m pleased to announce I have signed a contract for all 3 books.

Thank you Next Chapter #NextChapterPub #WhoppingTales

“Zany, intelligent, well-written with fantastic illustrations, a cross between Spike Milligan and 1066 and All That” – Alison Baille author

Whopping Tales are children’s stories for grown-ups who have not grown up, written and illustrated by an 8 year old girl, (but really it’s me, der). Isla Rose is eight. Her Granddad, whom she calls Fevvers, is a gazillion years old and as a consequence, has a mental age of about, eight. Isla Rose narrates and illustrates the adventures she and Fevvers have whilst correcting the history books and, her teacher, who doesn’t like Fevvers.

In three breath-taking adventures Isla and Fevvers meet King Canute, Francis Drake and Pharaoh Heepbigfattcheops, writing wrongs. Laugh historically and be educated. These books will change history and your life, if you allow it.

“Did you ever have a much loved relative who made up stories for you when you were a child? Well this is perfect. I was transported back to curling up safe and sound and being able to giggle my way through a couple of hours” – Ali Dragon Slayer – book blogger.

“Highly entertaining! Surreal, with dashes of Monty Python, Edward Lear, Ronald Searle, Alice in Wonderland and Spike Milligan but with Adams’ own flavour to it” – David John Griffin – author

I’m looking forward to reading and reviewing Black Rose.
