Author: Owen Mullen

Published: March 2017 by Bloodhound Books

Gavin Law was a whistleblower.

Now he’s missing.

Just another case for Glasgow PI, Charlie Cameron, until he discovers there is more to Law and his disappearance than anyone imagined.

A gripping prologue sets the scene for a convoluted case for PI Charlie Cameron. A botched operation leaves Margaret Cooper brain dead. The surgeon, Wallace Maitland, and the hospital refuse to admit responsibility and close ranks. Gavin Law’s accusations of malpractice set in motion a series of events which no-one could have foreseen. Also drawn into the mix is Colin McMillan, whose wife has taken her own life.

#Guest Post by Gitte Graugaard #Author of The Children’s Meditations: in My Heart #TuesdayBookBlog

I’m delighted to welcome Gitte Graugaard to Between The Lines with her thought provoking guest post and information about The Children’s Meditations: in My Heart. First of all, a little bit about the book…

Thousands of families love reading “The Children’s meditations: In my heart” at bedtime. Children today sleep one hour less than we did 25 years ago. It might be the same in your country? We need to teach our children to handle their thoughts and get enough sleep. The meditations in this book help the kids move their focus away from their many thoughts that often keep them awake, and down into their bodies. When the busy brain gets less attention, and the tired body gets more, the children fall asleep. They are tired and they need sleep to grow, to develop, and to be happy. As parents, we give our children and their friends an important gift by making sure our children get enough sleep. And what better way than with a heart full of love… Benefits: Your child finds inner peace. Your child falls quickly and easily asleep with his/her heart full of love. You will have a wonderful time together and create a loving language full of symbols of love. Your child learns about self–love. Your child learns to tackle everyday challenges with love. Your child learns about empathy, love, cohesion and gratitude. You fill your own heart with love at the same time. We truly believe that the world needs these stories of love and that we can make the world a better place, if we teach our children how to feel at home in their bodies and understand that the most beautiful love grows inside them.

On The Edge of a Raindrop by @SarahBrentyn ~ A collection of #FlashFiction & #MicroFiction

Author: Sarah Brentyn

Kindle Edition

Category: Flash Fiction, Micro Fiction, Haiku

When You’re on the Edge, It’s Easy to Fall

These are stories of lives on the edge.

A girl tortured by the world within her. A boy powerless to escape his home. A mother doomed to live with her greatest mistake. A man lost in a maze of grief.

Each raindrop provides a microscopic mirror of ourselves and those around us. But we can’t always trust what we see. The distorted images disorient the mind, altering our view of reality.

Having read Sarah Brentyn’s first collection, Hinting at Shadows, I was looking forward to reading On the Edge of a Raindrop. I’ve been dipping in and out of it for a little while, sometimes re-reading particular sections. It’s amazing what can be conveyed in just a few sentences, or even words. The book is divided into three sections – Mindscapes, Lifelines and Microbursts.
