A Book in Pictures: 'Order of the Seers' by Cerece Rennie Murphy

A Book in Pictures with Cerece Rennie Murphy


'A Book in Pictures' is an original feature, in which I ask authors or readers to choose pictures that relate to their own book or their favourite book in some way, be it photographs of the setting, actors who would play the characters in a movie, or pictures of anything that inspired them whilst writing/reading. I then ask them to explain why they chose those pictures.

Author Guest Post by Amber Lynn Natusch!

I was lucky enough to be invited onto the blog tour of 'Caged' by Amber Lynn Natusch! She has been kind enough to include an extract from her book below: 

Author Guest Post/ Book Extract

When I was asked to compose a guest blog post, I had no idea what to write. As an author, it was an especially low moment. Then a great friend suggested that I take an excerpt from the first novel in my series, Caged, and explain what I loved about it. Genius! Times like this illustrate my need for a team of levelheaded people around me―an entourage of rational thinkers.

Top Ten Tuesday: Books on my Autumn TBR!


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Every week a different topic comes up and bloggers list their top ten books in that category. 
I love a good list...I've always said that. That's practically my catchphrase.
