Have you ever wanted something so much you were afraid to even try? That was me ten years ago.

For as long as I can remember, I've wanted to be a novelist. I even started dozens of stories, over the years.

But life kept getting in the way. A seriously ill child who required years of therapy; a rising mortgage that led to a full-time job; six children, my own chronic illness… the writing took a back seat.

As the years passed, the fear grew. If I didn't put my stories out there in the market, I wouldn't risk making a fool of myself. I could keep the dream alive if I never put it to the test.

Then my mother died. That great lady had waited her whole life to read a novel of mine, and now it would never happen.

Hi Roxane

Look for Candle's Christmas Chair by Jude Knight on any of the retailers you patronise, and there'll be a place to post a review.

Here on Goodreads, you can write a review when you rate the book. As soon as you mark the number of stars you want, Goodreads will pop up the question 'Thanks for rating. Write a review?' If you click on that, you'll go straight into a review box.

If you want to write a review for a book you've already rated, set the Read this book status back to Want to read, and then redo the rating. It'll offer you the same question. Good luck. I look forward to seeing your review.(less)

Spotlight on Music on the Waters


St Magnus Cathedral, and its organ, play a central part in Music on the Waters, the latest novel from Caroline Warfield. The video above gives the history of the cathedral.


I love stories about two people groping their ineffectual way towards an understanding, and this is a delightful one. The hero is a successful businessman, but hasn’t been quite as successful in understanding his now deceased wi

David Sorry for not responding. Last few months have been manic. Having my 1st Pale Battalions - The Dark Land novel published at the first attempt has been quite surreal, but I'm beginning to enjoy it. Now at 'the find reviewers stage'. Still enjoying reading, and looking forward to sharing thoughts on novels.
Regards
David

Hi Steelwhisper. I won't read what I'm not interested in, and I won't take offence. But thanks for the warning.


Steelwhisper Thanks for the friending! I need to warn you though, unless you already saw this, that I read and write hardcore erotica, BDSM, LGBT and dark erotica. I also am writing historical fiction and romance, but this is the pen name with which I discuss a lot of such themes.

So, I hope my feed and reviews won't be offensive to you. But I'm interested in a very broad spectrum of books and topics, so if that isn't the case I will look forward to exchanging reading/writing experiences with you!
