Spotlight and #GuestPost from Rebecca Stonehill @bexstonehill #Books #1960s

I’m very happy to welcome Rebecca Stonehill, with an interesting and thought provoking guest post recalling five books that have most influenced her. So without further ado, over to you, Rebecca…..

So I’d like to share with you five books that have, over the years, affected me deeply in some way.

#GuestPost & #Extract from Margaret Skea #HistoricalFiction #wwwblogs @margaretskea1

I’m very pleased to welcome Margaret Skea, with a guest post and extract from her new book, Katharina: Deliverance, which is released today. Happy release day, Margaret, and over to you….

Sidetracked into a different world (and time).

So there I was, in March 2016, fresh from a month on a Hawthornden Fellowship – an all expenses stay in a 17th c  Scottish  castle with nothing to do but write. We were very well looked after – cooking, cleaning, clothes washing and so on all done for us – the only ‘rule’ a rule of silence in the castle from 9.00am – 6.30 pm. That, and the surroundings, made for an incredible work environment and having gone with heaps of research material, but not even the most sketchy plan for my next novel, I came home, after seventeen days of actual writing, ¼ of the way through Book 3 in my Scottish historical fiction series.  It seemed my next nine months were taken care of.

The best laid plans ‘gang oft agley’ as they say here. A couple of weeks into March I headed down to London for my first visit to London Book Fair. The buzz was energising and I managed to get individual appointments with several agents and agencies, hoping that someone would be keen on Scottish HF – after all, Outlander was proving popular…

#Guest Post & Extract from Sometimes The Darkness by Will Campbell @gibster1000 #FridayReads

Welcome to the Blog Tour for Sometimes The Darkness. Here Will Campbell explains the motivation behind his debut novel. Over to you, Will…

There were several factors that led to the writing of this novel. One was my passion for  current events, specifically in Africa, a continent in which I’ve always had a keen interest.  The other is my fascination with the role fate plays in our lives. 

I began writing the novel Sometimes the Darkness in 2005. At that time, the war in Darfur, which began in 2003, was receiving constant coverage by many of the news outlets at that time. It is important to remember that there were significantly less news groups in operation then as now. Even so, the war and the atrocities associated with it (as there is with every war) received much coverage, enough to draw my interest and study.

The causes of this conflict were numerous. Economics, tribalism, territorial issues, ethic/religious issues and disputes all contributed to the start and continuation of that  conflict in this western region of Sudan. Sudan, including South Sudan, formed in 2011, is the largest country on the continent. It is, by comparison, ten times larger than the United Kingdom.  Continue reading

Guest Post & #Extract ~ The Divine Heart by Danielle R Mani #YoungAdult #Paranormal

I’m pleased to welcome Danielle to BetweenTheLines today, with a guest post and extract from her book, The Divine Heart.

About the book

Seventeen-year-old Elle Collins spent most her life waiting for someone else to die…

When a heart donor is found, Elle awakes from surgery gifted with more than just a new heart—clairaudient messages and spiritual apparitions haunt her until she is convinced that she must be insane. Either that, or her donor is sending a message.

Desperate for answers the medical community can’t provide, Elle’s divination leads her to the family of her donor—a young girl named, Cas. With the help of her best friend, Rob—the guy who’s a testament that her new heart is capable of love, Elle must make sense of the clues Cas is sending. As pieces of Cas’s life and death emerge, Elle will discover that she and Cas share more than just a heart.
