Firstly I wish to thank Kim Nash of Bookouture for inviting me to be part of the Blog Tour for The Mistake by K. L. Slater
You think you know the truth about the people you love.
But one discovery can change everything…
Eight-year-old Billy goes missing one day, out flying his kite with his sister Rose. Two days later, he is found dead.
Sixteen years on, Rose still blames herself for Billy’s death. How could she have failed to protect her little brother?

Rose thought she knew the truth about what happened to…

Hey boys and gals!
So as you may know, I started back at work yesterday!
If you’re new to my blog, I’ve been off work for 6 months due to having endometriosis removal and diagnosis surgery and dealing with the complications of that. It’s not been fun.
I stated in a few posts back that I was returning on the 22nd September (yesterday), and wanted to write a quick update of how it went!
So the company I work for recently brought and opened their second pub, and before my 6 months off, I was pretty adamant that I wouldn’t want to work there since I had been at the original place from the beginning.
After having a few meetings with various different people, we actually decided it would be best off if I did start at the newer site as it’s a lot more quieter, meaning it would be…

I have nearly 2500 followers on this blog. This is not to brag to but to bring up a larger point in that about 5% of them have regular engagement (commenting and liking). Perhaps it says something about bigger not always being better. Some of my fellow bloggers have 4 times the followers I do and have way more activity. I wonder if its the content or the person that keeps them coming back. In either case you have to offer something to keep people interested in you and what you are writing.
Sure there are case studies about such things but when it comes down to it you have to just be yourself and hope that can be the magic that draws people in. Everyone has their own sauce so to speak and the ingredients are as varied as their are recipes for this social thing.
But there is…

Lack of energy, low self-esteem and dwindling excitement are some of the…

You howled along the coast like an angry host
accosting a frightened town with a category four
more critical than ever before catastrophic floods rose
appose street rows and continued to rise
devastating priceless lives
transposing rivers on dry ground
drenching opposed citizens fleeing treasured abodes
lives shattered and unrecoverable but memorized
as they fled for higher ground
Your angry winds lashed Houston to a whipping post
wielding a woeful lesson in environmental education
taking lives presaging global warming unheeded
til the next time you winds call
with cataclysmic pleading
for a smaller carbon footprint
