Silver Skin's First Review!

Jamie Harris, InternSilver-Skin
Silverskin by Joan Lennon
"The premise alone was enough to rope me in, and it’s no mean feat to collide a brilliantly imaginative scientific future with Stone Age Scotland. The characters are superb and utterly human, the plot tears along at a breakneck pace, and all the way through there’s that little element of the supernatural woven in that keeps you on your toes. It’s just one of those books that does everything right. It finds that elusive sweet spot where, while it is aimed at a young adult readership, it is mature and intriguing enough to pull in older readers too. Simply put, this is a must for anyone who enjoys a cracking good adventure!"

Thanks Jamie - you've made my day!

Winter Sunset - A, B or C?

Normally when I'm going through photographs I know exactly which version of a scene I like best, but this time I couldn't choose - I mean, with elements like these it's hard to go wrong!  Which one do you like best - A, B or C?  I'd really like to know -

See This Smile?

It's on my face because there's a lovely review of Her Lines, My Lines on award-winning author Susan Price's Nennius Blog and on Eclectic Electric- I can't think of a nicer way to start the year!



If you'd like to own a copy of the book - and contribute to BOOKMARK Book Festival funds at the same time - you can buy yours here

Happy New Year! (as they go on saying here in Scotland for weeks!)

Happy Christmas from Me to You!

If you're short one last treat for yourself or somebody else, here's a totally-unsubtle reminder of something with something for everyone -



(It's an e-book, and here's the link.)

I'm dotted about today in a Christmas elf sort of way - come join me on Girls Heart Books for a heart-lifting chorus and then on an Awfully Big Blog Adventure for a tiny respite.

Which only leaves to say, Happy Christmas!  And I'll see you on the other side ...
