#4 - Pretend you have just finished reading this book and in 7 sentences, describe your feelings. GO!
This is an eye opening read which has certainly opened my eyes to things I never knew.
Made me cry, both tears and noises on several occasions.
(It breaks my heart to hear squeaky toy noises coming from our fluffy bunny squirrel...sob...sniffle)
I am shocked and stunned.
While it is wonderful to hear so many personal tales, it makes you feel totally hopeless.
Made me consider just how resilient people really are, or, I suppose how they must be.
I could not live like that for a day, let alone years.
After reading this, I agree that there are far more heroes than soldiers.
#5 - Rewrite a major scene in this book, in 7 words. Can be connected as in a sentence or individual.
Returned to find home, rubble. Daughter missing.
#6 - In 7 sentences, tell me what you are writing, or working on, now?
I always have projects on the go.
(A very busy squirrel and super spy for the 'better fur coat' squad)
My next publication will be The Pussers Cook Book containing recipes of the traditional and most loved Royal Naval dishes.
(Some of which, I hope, contain nuts...hint, hint)
I am nearing completion of On the Highway of Irreverent Rumination and Delusion a compilation of my, (now defunct), Social Comments on Life blog, strung together by the device of an imaginary car journey.
Put simply it is "An eclectic collage of momentary instances loosely stitched together by wisps of fleeting reflection".
I am also working on a Novel, delving into the darker side of human nature; a tale of an escaped psychopath on a rampage of bloody revenge against all involved in his original incarceration.
A nice, homely SLASHER type read that is not for the fainthearted!
(Swooning...and not in a good way...shudder)
Maybe another Read to Me Children’s book is on the cards too…possibly more little fluffy rabbits?
(Hang on! Fluffy rabbits/slasher type...can you say split personality squirrel? Mommy, I'm scared.)
#7 - Name 7 Indie Authors whose work you have read and enjoyed. If you haven’t read 7; shame on you.
Squid McFinnigan: An amazing short story writer with an excellent debut novel Honeysuckle Lane.
(I love the name, Squid McFinnigan...there's a book in there, somewhere.)
Michael J Elliot: For all things, Scary as with How Does Your Garden Grow.
Karen J Mossman: Another great short story writer and super novelist. You won’t go wrong with Hero’s or The Secret.
Kris Nicole: Cute, kind and wonderful to know. Writes excellent, burning girly romance. "Yes, I have read the girly stuff."
(Multiple personality squirrel?)
Elizabeth Newton: View from the Sixth Floor and my current reading Riddle.
India Taylor: I have not read yet, but have promised and I have her book Bite me ready to go.
(Possible rabid squirrel? I gotta get her here for an interview)
I must also mention Andy Peloqui, a new-to-me writer, but one whose book Child of the Night Guild I am itching to read.
(I'll give Paul creds for the two not read, but going to read. I'll be checking up on you, Paul.)
And there you have it, folks; in a nutshell. All of Paul's links are at a click, so check him out and meet me, Angel M., at the ole oak tree every weekend for another installment of #SQUIRREL!
If you are an author and would like to be squirreled, send me an email at email@example.com and say "heck yeah, I want into the nut house". My goal is to post a new #SQUIRREL every week through 2017 and beyond, if there is enough interest.
