What readers are saying about: Layered

What readers are saying:

Thank you Lynette, for sharing a free copy of your book so I could read it. I must say that even tho I normally choose creepy/horror books, I also enjoy cute tales! As the title says, this book has many layers... layers of characters, layers of feelings, layers of stories... and a refreshing twist in the end! Is well written, some parts express really deep emotions and you can identify with them (specially going back to your teenager years). Really enjoyed this title. a-maze rated it at Goodreads

I like this book... it suits to read by young adults... i do really like the "Hannah Part" in this book... it's so sweet :) Stephany Efflina rated it at Goodreads
I would like to thank the author for the free ebook copy she sent me. At first I could not read this book and was lost between Caitlyn and Hannah's worlds; and that is why it took me too long to get back to re-reading it. However, I gave it another chance and the book started to get much bette…

I have a backstory too

Image
I was born in Burgersdorp in South Africa on a beautiful autumn day. As a child, I moved around a lot with my family, and even though I went to a new school in a new town every year, I grew up happy. 

As I grew older and got used to moving around, I realised it does not matter if the kids at the new school looked at me strangely for the first day or two. Soon I blended into the background. 

I was always excited about going to a new school, I enjoyed the excitement of a new environment, and most importantly what the boys would look like and will I find 'the one'. I only found who I thought was 'the one' in Grade 11, aged sixteen. After a year, I realised I am going to have to kiss more than one frog to find my true love - sadly!



After school, I went to work at one of the last manual telephone exchanges in South Africa for my gap year. The year after, I went to Teacher Training College in Durban. Here I met whom I thought was 'the one'. After a tumultuous ten-year e…

The Vampire Pirate Saga: William the Damned

What readers are saying:

First of all I have to say that I love the cover! It made me want to buy this book and I was not disappointed. CathyMcReader rated it at Amazon

Love is complicated and the author does a great job of proving that. The prose was poetic and the tension was real. All those thoughts and feelings you had when you found love or thought you found love are here. Scott A. Coleman rated it at Amazon

What the story is about:

A deadly vampire should not fall in love - but that is exactly what happens to William.

Terrified of being sent off to marry a man whom she has never met, Susanna boards The Majestic to travel from England to France. 

The attack on The Majestic was planned. 

Keeping Susanna was unplanned. 

Now, with a lady hidden in his cabin and a crew who is getting restless, William has a lot of decisions to make. Keep her or kill her?

We made these memories for ourselves

Image
When we woke up to a bright, sunny day and decided not to go to church, but instead to venture west and go to the beach.

We stopped at a town called Buncrana, located in the Republic of Ireland and about an hour's drive from home.




Buncrana is located on the northern bank of the River Crana as it enters Lough Swilly, which in itself provides a most scenic drive.



We went to visit the three-story O'Doherty's Keep, which is the only surviving part of an original 14th-century Norman castle. 



Then we went for a long, long walk on fine, white sea sand. I have not seen sea sand in a forever long time, and as the gentle breeze washed over me, my soul felt as if it had wings.



After a very enjoyable day, we went back home, but it is a day I will remember fondly for a long, long time.

Reasons to love April

Two: It is a time for spring-cleaning in the Northern Hemisphere;

ThreeEaster - celebrating the resurrection of Jesus from the dead;

Four: William Shakespeare was born in April 1564;

Five: Diamond is the birthstone for April;

Six: My Life Hereafter is available to download for nothing*

Let me tell you a story of William the Damned, a vampire pirate

Image
At last! It feels as if this has been a long time coming and today I feel so very accomplished 💗 I've just finished uploading the audio files for William the Damned: A Vampire Pirate and hopefully soon, the audio book will be available for download from audio-book-places all over the web.




I was umming and aahing whether I should change the cover for the audio book, but then, in 2010, Tahnĕ had created such an amazing cover for William, and I would never find anything as beautiful (to me) and so fitting. In my mind's eye William looks just like the guy on the cover.

Eileen send me the files for both William the Damned: A Vampire Pirate & The Vampire Pirate's Daughter all at once, and so now I'm off to indulge in some chocolate biscuits, a cup of coffee and to listen to her soothing Irish accent. The audio files for The Vampire Pirate's Daughter should be uploaded soon.


Links to audio book will follow soon.

In case you forgot: The ebook editions of both William the …
