NEW TALENT! These Books Are Definitely Worth Checking Out!

The Days of My Life
By Jeannette Ellwood

A quirky exotic family experiences danger, adventure and turbulance at a time when the world as we knew it was turning upsidedown.

'I was born in a lunatic asylum...' into a family of seven. We loved my escapee Russian aunt who absent mindedly left the family jewels in a Moscow railway station, we admired an uncle who tried to commit suicide outside the family home by shooting himself in the foot, and we hugged my darling Uncle Ted who managed to smuggle fireworks from the French Resistance into the blackout dark basement of a house in London at war in order to make his little sister happy. We lived in the turbulent times before WWl and survived the assault of WWll and carried on the fight for right into the 21st century by joining the UN peacekeeping force in Kosovo. We met with the great and the good and the great and the bad. We faced guns and mountain mists aided refugees, drove along roads laced with mines and gave help in refugee camps. We achieved and we failed. My family, my life. 


The Days of My Life

By Jeannette Ellwood
This is an outstanding first chapter. Rarely does an author so courageously expose truths, realities, day to day struggles, hopes, and fears under Germany’s invasion in the UK.    What excellent narration from a first-hand perspective. 

Backed and awarded high stars.

The Secrets Of The Forest “Cosmos 501”
By Neville Kent
“An incantation or enchantment is a charm or spell created using words!” and you manage to do this flawlessly in this wonderfully written fairytale – my inner child was brought out as soon as I started reading and I soon found I couldn’t stop. I read the whole 12 chapters in one sitting captivated, intrigued and lost in this incredibly endearing story of these adorable characters.
I can envisage that it’s just a matter of time before these delightful stories are published and available worldwide.

My review of Daemon Seer by Mary Maddox.


Luanda and Lisa share a devastating history with one-another that connects them in ways they never thought possible-they were both abducted and tortured by the same serial-killer several years prior.  Luanda has the ability to enter Lisa’s mind, when Lisa allows her to and also feels her friend’s deep tormented emotions.  Lisa is able to paint the demons that torment Luanda unaware that these demons are real in her friends mind and that they are threatening to change the course of Luanda’s existence.  Lisa is on the run from Psycho cop who has brutally raped and deliberately planted a large amount of narcotics to force a warrant for Lisa’s arrest, so he can re-claim his victim and subject her to more terror.  Luanda summons the demons to help her friend but the demons only interest is in Luanda getting pregnant and bringing another baby into the world they can take possession of.  There are plenty of twists and turns to keep you guessing and plenty of thrills and excitement to provoke the reader to read further and further.   
I particularly enjoyed the eccentricity of this dark, twisted and macabre story of these two young women brought together in these extra-ordinary circumstances.  


The book was well edited and had a very pleasant layout.
The dialogue was easy to follow, straight forward and understandable.
Very good description and dialogue by a very competent author!


Author Mary Maddox successfully manages to combine a mixture of horror, terror, suspense, thriller and a subtle supernatural element all in one go.  This is a taunt, gripping, thriller; make no mistake and it leaves little to the imagination as the pages are turned. 
I’d be interested in reading a sequel to this book and would definitely recommend it to my friends.
