A note from Chris:

I went to see my mother around Mother’s Day. She’s eighty-nine and slowing down, though she’s still driving—which is a scary thought to me. She looked around at the house, the furniture, the memorabilia, and said to me, “When I leave this world, I won’t miss anything but my books.”

Books were a part of her life since I was young. She read to me. She modeled reading to me. She loved nonfiction, commentaries, poetry—anything that was well-written. I know I caught the writing bug from her …

Operation Zulu RedemptionSynopsis:~

They never should’ve existed. Now they don’t.  

Zulu, the first all-female special ops team, was set up to take a devastating fall. Fearing for their lives, Zulu members vanished with new identities.

BookishQu250There’s no doubt e-books have revolutionised the reading experience as we have such easy access to millions of books at the click of a button. I carry over 1500 books in my handbag these days, thanks to my Kindle – and this from a women who initially vowed e-readers were not for her!

One thing I have noticed is that much of the benefit of ebooks is in favour of the reader with books cheaper than ever, and a never ending supply of free books available, thanks to the power of Amazon! It has opened up many opportunities for writers, …
