“Live” Feedback for Access Denied

Earlier this week, I had an opportunity to “sell” to a lady at a train station a copy of my book, Access Denied. She said she loved true stories and I warned her that people had told me that once they started reading it, they couldn’t put it down. She bought a copy of it right in front of me and downloaded it instantly to her Kindle.

The next day, I saw her again. “Oh my God! I couldn’t put it down!” She told me. There’s something very nice, very rewarding, about hearing that directly from the reader.

Access Denied – Available, autographed, and in eBook form, from my bookstore. Also available from all other good online bookstores.

Her Majesty, The Queen, Elizabeth II

With elegance, and unsurpassed grace,

Our beautiful Queen lit up every space,

In loyal duty, until the end,

Events and ceremonies, she’d attend.

 

A wondrous Queen, full of fun and wit,

She even did a Paddington skit.

Parachuting, with James Bond,

Our Queen, of whom, we’d become so fond.

 

In the longest reign, virtuous and kind,

Our monarch, was thus defined.

Her rule may be over, but our memories nest,

In peace, with Philip, now may she rest.

 

Her Majesty, The Queen, Elizabeth II, 1926 – 2022.

Couldn’t put it down!!!!

Mind Blood is a brilliant little book of short stories – some had me thinking… One or two made me giggle and a few were quite impossible not to question if it could happen to you… or has it yet to happen?? So many little twists and lots of blood – my poor brain has had to have a holiday!! Well done to David for a book I can pick up again and again to quench my thirst of little short stories without having to leave the light on but keep me awake thinking… Drip Drip drip… Is anybody there? It’s just a book… Let your imagination run amok with this little gem of a book. Go on. I dare you.
