#October ~ Meet The Advertisers on #AliTheDragonSlayer

Well you may have spotted I have opened up the blog to welcome in some lovely advertisers/sponsors. I’m lucky to have so many friendly followers and supporters across all my social media sites so it’s the ideal way to share the skills of other people and maybe you will discover somebody you haven’t met yet!

So without further ado I will introduce my first group of advertisers, they will be popping up all over my sites during the month so give them some love and a follow as well as checking out their sites, books, skills etc ūüôā xx

The Things We Learn When We’re Dead: A modern fairytale of love and loss that weaves together the inner conflicts of a young woman‚Äôs life.

On the way home from a dinner party she didn’t want to attend, Lorna Love steps into the path of an oncoming car. When she wakes up she is in what appears to be a hospital ‚Äď but a hospital in which her nurse looks like a young Sean Connery, she is served wine for supper, and everyone avoids her questions.

It soon transpires that she is in Heaven, or on HVN. Because HVN is a lost, dysfunctional spaceship, and God the aging hippy captain. She seems to be there by accident. Or does God have a higher purpose after all?

At first Lorna can remember nothing. As her memories return ‚Äď some good, some bad ‚Äď she realises that she has decisions to make and that she needs to find a way home‚Ķ

I have a copy of The Things We Learn When We’re Dead which I am planning to review by the end of the month!

 

As a child Carol Wyer was always moving, and relied on humour to fit in at new schools. A funny short story won her popularity, planting the seed of becoming a writer. Her career spans dry cleaning, running a language teaching company, and boxercise coaching. Now writing full-time, Carol has several books published by Safkhet and journalism in many magazines.

After turning to the #Darkside she has three crime thrillers published by Bookouture with the fourth following later this year!

  1. Her breath rose and fell in fearful gasps but it was too late. She could already see what she dreaded most. The back seat was empty.
    Her little girl was gone.

2. Colourful, plastic boats were scattered in puddles on the floor. In the bathtub lay Linda Upton, fully-clothed, lips a shade of blue, and bloodshot eyes wide open.

3. One girl found dead. Another girl gone…
Long shadows danced on the tin walls. Inside the trunk lay Carrie Miller, wrapped in plastic, arms folded across her ribcage, lips sealed tight forever…

4. The boy studied the bruise turning yellow at the base of his neck. With quick fingers his mother tightened his tie, and pulled his collar high above it. Her eyes alone said, We will not speak of this

I have read books 1-3 and enthused wildly over them all .. I will be reading book 4 as soon as I can!

Devious, ruthless, and loyal.
Zenka is a capricious Hungarian with a dark past.
When cranky London mob boss, Jack Murray, saves her life she vows to become his guardian angel ‚Äď whether he likes it or not. Happily, she now has easy access to pistols, knives and shotguns.
Jack discovers he has a son, Nicholas, a male nurse with a heart of gold. Problem is, Nicholas is a wimp.
Zenka takes charges. Using her feminine wiles and gangland contacts, she will make Nicholas into the sort of son any self-respecting crime boss would be proud of. And she succeeds!
Nicholas transforms from pussycat to mad dog, falls in love with Zenka, and finds out where the bodies are buried ‚Äď because he buries them. He‚Äôs learning fast that sometimes you have to kill, or be killed.
As his life becomes more terrifying, questions have to be asked:
How do you tell a mob boss you don’t want to be his son?
And is Zenka really who she says.

You can see my review for Zenka later in the month.

Welcome to the world of CRAVE Guitars. The name ‚ÄėCRAVE‚Äô is a play on words; as an acronym, it stands for ‚ÄėCool & Rare American Vintage Electric‚Äô guitars, while its¬†literal meaning is ‚Äėto¬†yearn for‚Äô or ‚Äėto want greatly‚Äô, which seems eminently appropriate.

Crave showcases many, many awesome photos from their vintage collection, interesting articles on a multitude of musical/guitar knowledge/facts/events. Keep an eye open, sometimes these instruments go up for sale!
