Hello. For today’s post, I’ve decided to share some of the reviews, shares and promos for my new crime thriller, The Iron Pendulum.
My ten year old daughter decided to spend her morning creating an IMovie promo to promote the book after I gave her ideas of what was trapped between the crisp pages. With the aid of some photos, she came up with this gem…
I was very impressed with her efforts and she has now moved on to my children’s book, A Tale of Knots!
Hugh, Colleen, Olga, Wally and many other bloggers, writers and friends have been sharing the link to TIP (The Iron Pendulum).
Here’s what they had to say…
“I was a beta reader for this book. It was a brilliant read, so go buy/download it right now. You’ll be thanking me. 😀” Hugh
“With little evidence to go on the detectives are thrown head first into one of the most bizarre missing person cases I have ever read. Author, Eloise De Sousa adeptly strings the reader along revealing more grisly discoveries along the way. There is an extraordinary family history intertwined within the story that propels you forward to the shocking conclusion.
If you love a good murder mystery and don’t get squeamish reading about blood and murder, then this book is for you. I did get pretty creeped out, I won’t deny that. There is quite the shock factor when you reach the end… Remember, I warned you!” Colleen
I have to admit, this story has a lot of grit to it, but I can assure all my readers, it’s not enough to put you off finding out who did it in the end.
One of my Hot Shots subscribers gave her review of TIP.
As a writer, the brick wall of procrastination and mind block is fatal to any projects awaiting completion. Here’s an example of one of my projects which have fallen under its deadly blocks of silence. Continue reading →
Hello and welcome back for another coffee catch up. It’s a bit late here but the perfect time to brew a cuppa Java and whittle away at the past week.
How have you been? What has been the highlight of your past week and weekend? My highlight has been the time taken to read a book and watch my favourite Netflix shows!
This week has flown by. I had a challenge thrown at me to complete the writing task and organising an event at work which got my creative juices flowing again. Now if I could just shift my behind off Procrastination Island, I’d be fine!
Happy celebrations are filling my dance card most weekends throughout June and to be honest, it is the season to be grateful for a large family – well that’s how I feel anyway. With so many celebrations comes the agony of finding something to wear. It may seem trivial to some but my family takes events seriously and we have to tog up. It’s a great way to feel like a party princess too!
Bubbles of excitement are crawling under my skin. We have only a few weeks left before summer holidays truly begin and it will be time to start promoting my books. While I wait for it, I’m slowly traveling through my reading list and trying to devour as many as I can before my second year begins. After all, time waits for no man…or woman.
Well, my time seems to be up. My cup needs a refill and it’s time to get in a few minutes reading time before bed.
Join me again soon for another cup and catch up. It’s been great spending time with you. Have a great week.
Thanks for joining me at the virtual coffee house! It’s great to see you after such a long time. Grab your coffee and let’s get settled on the big yellow sofa in the corner near the fire. It’s chilly again tonight and the threat of rain is imminent, as always. Continue reading →
Harry is a bit of a conundrum. She’s the kind of woman you want to sympathize with but end up hating because of her frailty and ability to call every man in close proximity to her assistance. Her life has been hell and though she seems to think there might be a light at the end of the rainbow – it’s the light of an oncoming train! Continue reading →
