Smorgasbord - Variety is the spice of life

Welcome to the first of the blogger daily posts of the week and today I am also sharing a couple of book reviews. They are always worth celebrating as are those who take the time to review. You will see that the bloggers today are also authors in the Cafe and Bookstore. I created that as a promotional platform for authors and as many are bloggers too, it is an opportunity to showcase their writing skills.

If you are not in the Cafe and Bookstore and would like to enjoy regular promotions then please take a look at how you can be added to the shelves.

Sally’s Cafe and Bookstore – Author Update #Reviews – Daniel Kemp, Toni Pike, Marcia Meara and Gigi Sedlmayer

I was thrilled to have a wonderful review of DEAD DRY HEART included in Sally’s Cafe and Bookstore author update today.

Smorgasbord - Variety is the spice of life

Welcome to the first of the author updates this week with recent reviews for authors on the shelves of the bookstore.

The first author is Daniel Kemp for his book The Story That Had No Beginning.

About The Story That Had No Beginning

Alicia Collinson poses a surprising question to her dinner guests:

“Do you think lying is endemic in society today?”

They all have different answers based on their experiences, but what was the purpose of Alicia’s question?

She was separated from her twin brother, Tom, when they were eight. Tom graduated into a life of violence, while Alice found a life of fortune and wealth in her partner, Mary.

But when Mary unexpectedly passes away, a new person enters Alice’s life – someone who seems to know every detail about her.

Soon, her past and present lives collide with life-changing consequences.

I‘m excited to announce that my latest release, a psychological thriller called Dead Dry Heart, is now live and available at all Amazon outlets. I hope to publish the paperback version in the very near future.

This was something I wrote several years and recently took out of a drawer to rewrite. The story is close to my heart – an Australian thriller set in Canberra, the nation’s capital city, and in a remote area of Western Australian.

Here is the book description.

DEAD DRY HEART – A psychological thriller

Tyler Thompson is Australia’s young, brilliant and charismatic Prime Minister, riding high on a wave of popularity. But the past has come back to haunt him and there is a shocking secret from his childhood that he will do almost anything to conceal.

Five Questions with Author Toni Pike

Many thanks to Maria Hanako van Straaten, who has featured her interview with me on her blog.

Maria Hanako van Straaten

I have recently had the pleasure of interviewing the amazing Author, Toni Pike. She is a fellow traveller and novelist who enjoys travelling the corners of the world to gather inspiration for the scenes in her novels. I hope you enjoy reading this article, and her stories.

1. How did you initially find the inspiration for your Jotham Fletcher Mystery series?
I had dabbled in writing for years, but several years ago decided to try my hand at writing a fast-moving thriller. I thought it would be fun to take on the challenge of writing an exciting story that would entice my readers to keep turning the page.
First, I read as much as I could about the features of that genre and decided that I want to write a conspiracy thriller about a religious mystery. While doing some research, I read about Simon Magus, a magician and cult leader…

Smorgasbord - Variety is the spice of life

Welcome to the Friday edition of the Author Update where I share new releases and recent reviews for authors in the Cafe and bookstore.

The first author today with news is Balroop Singh with a new review for her poetry collection Emerging From Shadows.

About Emerging from Shadows poetry collection

From darkness into light, from despair onto the wider ways of hope…life oscillates between sunshine and shadows. Emerging from shadows is a choice, which lies dormant, which can be gently inspired by self-talk. Each poem in this book banks on the hope of emerging stronger, saner, positive and resilient. Each poem in this book would talk to you, revealing layers of enclosed emotions. Each poem would divulge a secret path that could lead you into the world of poise and serenity.

When turbulences hit, when shadows of life darken, when they come like unseen robbers, with muffled exterior, when they…

I’m proud to announce that HOLY SPEAR OF MAGUS, the fourth book in The Jotham Fletcher Mystery Thriller Series, has just been released. Jotham Fletcher returns in another non-stop adventure, and this time he must fight to stop the Holy Spear falling into the wrong hands.

There are now four books in the series: THE MAGUS COVENANT, THE ROCK OF MAGUS, THE MAGUS EPIPHANY and HOLY SPEAR OF MAGUS.

The Moment of Clarity

The moment when we decide to achieve a dream

The moment of clarity is the most mysterious part of achieving a dream. It is that one lucid moment before you start to follow a plan and achieve a goal. No one can explain why, after years of longing and setting targets that were never met, everything changes. It is a magic moment when the fog in your mind lifts and your purpose becomes clear.

Just pretend for a moment that you want to go on a holiday. Not just a few days by the beach, but an overseas trip that you have been thinking about for a long time. There is a vague idea in your mind that you would love to see a certain part of the world.

When and why did you decide that you would love to see Scandinavia or Asia or…
