5 out of 5 stars.
Deception by Eloise De Sousa is the heartbreaking story of Amanda, her young son Zachary, and Alex. Their lives are woven together more than they know, as they take a harrowing trip down a trail full of lies and deceit to find the truth and try to capture the future that they both see at the end of the trail. Amanda ran from home shortly after learning she was pregnant; scared and heartbroken over the betrayal from her family, she ran far and fast. Alex is there to help rescue Amanda and Zachary, while hoping Amanda can rescue him from the pain and loneliness of losing his wife. When the truth starts to come out, people want to make sure it’s never known. Torn by his own loss and the lies surrounding that night, Alex is standoffish but quickly realizes his love for Amanda. Zachary is just five, but already learning that life isn’t always easy. Used by adults to try to get what they want, he’s lucky to have his mother there and a man that already thought of him as his own son to protect him from the people trying to hurt him.
Deception by Eloise De Sousa makes you wonder what would you do for your family and how far would you go to get what you want? Eloise De Sousa’s characters feel real and the imagery she uses places you right there with Amanda, Alex, and poor Zachary as they follow the path to finding the truth and their happily ever after. Deception kept me on the edge of my seat and was almost impossible to put down. I just had to know what happened next and I wasn’t satisfied until I’d read the entire thing! Eloise De Sousa did an amazing job tying everything together and showing just how far some people will go to get what they want and to protect the ones they love.
Deception is available on Kindle, Kobo, Nook, Ibooks and direct from Lulu.

I have started about three of four blog posts of the past few days, hoping to catch up with you and tell you all about the events from last week and what has been happening this week, to no avail. Sickly sprogs sprouting things that they shouldn’t, time turning the crank and speeding up every moment, my to-do list growing by the second – the cards were against me writing to you until now. Exhaustion is not an option as there is still so much to do and so little time. Continue reading

…And so I face the final curtain
My friend, I’ll say it clear
I’ll state my case, of which I’m certain
I’ve lived a life that’s full
I’ve traveled each and every highway
But more, much more than this
I did it my way.” Frank Sinatra – My Way
As we approach the penultimate stop on our Blast Off with Space Dust Blog Tour, I would like to thank each and every blogger who took the time to host our adventure through the blogosphere. Being an independent author means you have to create waves in the marketing pool using the support and friendships in the community around you, a family of creative writers who all dream the same dream – of leaving the written word out there for the world to enjoy.
Space Dust has certainly been my greatest adventure so far and with their support, it has been a joy to come out of my shell and share my special story with you. Without the inspiration of the great librarians at the Bracknell Forest Libraries, Space Dust would never have come into existence and our Little One wouldn’t have had an adventure through space in Big Ox’s canoe, paddling along with his absolute favourite spoon!
And, of course, I can’t forget you, the reader. Whether or not you’ve read my book and left a review, I appreciate you taking this journey with me and reading my posts. I hope our adventure together will continue and we will journey further into the book market, giving Space Dust a chance to be shared with more readers, more families, more dreamers.
On that note, let’s take a trip to another author’s page, this time it’s Val Neil. She has kindly given us a platform to share a bit more about the story.
Click here, as always!

About Space Dust
We’re going on a trip in Big Ox’s canoe. Watch the fire bears roar on Venus as pepper pot trees grow on the moon. As Big Ox steers us to the planets, Litte One wonders if Mum will come home soon.
My review for Space Dust
A wonderful journey around the planets in a canoe paddled by a favourite spoon that will delight younger readers, and those reading the story to them. There are beautifully colourful illustrations between the stages of the trip, which will encourage a pause in the storytelling, offering an opportunity to discuss the journey so far. The two main characters, Big Ox and Little One are lovable travel companions as they head off in search of Little One’s mum. and discover creatures…
