A Note for my Mailing List Subscribers

I joined Mailchimp a couple of years ago and have always used the free account service provided. At the moment I have 1553 active subscribers, but Mailchimp have informed me that I can no longer send emails to all of them unless I pay for the privilege, even though their rules state that free accounts are allowed up to 2000 subscribers. Also I cannot contact them to complain that I haven't used up my quota yet, as surprise suprise ...that is a paid service as well.  Therefore some of you will who signed up at the start will probably receive fewer emails from me, although you will get notice of any new books I publish.  Sorry, it's all my fault because I prefer the free service... wouldn't you (lol)?

5.0 out of 5 stars by Janice Spina on Goodreads August 3rd 2022: It was amazing - 

Shelves: books-reviewed, e-books

An intriguing read that kept me in suspense as it wound down to a shocking ending.

Stevie Turner is a talented writer of short fiction. She creates well-defined and interesting characters with a fascinating storyline.

I really enjoyed this story though short was full and rich in details and character development with a heart-wrenching premise.

I recommend this enjoyable read.

5 stars on Goodreads by Janice Spina 25/7/22

Two women, co-workers, different as night and day, go on a Caribbean cruise together. Pauline and Shirley are looking forward to a wonderful time away from work. Pauline is married while Shirley isn’t at the moment. Shirley has already had two broken marriages and wants to find the love of her life.

This story, Cruising Danger, kept me riveted to find out what happened to Shirley when she goes missing from the cruise. Pauline does all she can to find her. She suspects that Shirley’s fling with a band member on the cruise went awry but she can’t prove anything.

Pauline’s goal is to find her friend and get home safely with her in tow. But things don’t add up and Pauline is forced to take matters into her own hands. She contacts her husband, Jim, to help to report her friend is missing.

This was an enjoying and intriguing story that I highly recommend. It will keep you in suspense until the satisfying ending.

New Review for 'The Pilates Class'

5 stars on Goodreads by Janice Spina 25/7/22

The Pilates Class was an enjoyable and comical story that made me laugh out loud at the antics of the some of characters in the class. The author has a wonderful sense of humor and displayed this in the cast of people she created in this tale.

There are several characters, both men and women, who interact in this story, some more favorably than others. They connect and get together while others cannot stand to be in the same room. Each has their own story to share which makes for an intriguing read.

I would recommend this lovely short story.

A New Review for 'Lily: A Short Story'.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Sweet and Endearing Tale!

Reviewed in the United States on July 22, 2022 by Janice Spina

A sweet and endearing story of a woman, Lily, of advanced years (92) whose health is failing. When her children are unable to care for her anymore, they move her into a health care facility where she will get better care. But does she? There is a health care worker who is cruel and uncaring in her treatment of Lily. Lily suffers at her hands and prays that her suffering will end soon.

Her only wish before she dies is to find out what happened to her sister, Violet, who disappeared at the age of 14. Her parents never told her or her other sisters where Violet went and why.

This story is cleverly crafted to engage the reader to sympathize and empathize with Lily. Will the mystery of her lost sister ever be uncovered so she can go in peace? You will have to read it to find out.

This is a lovely story that will grip your heart. I highly recommend it!

Newest Review for 'Scam!'

I received the following 5 star review for 'Scam!' on Goodreads on 27th June 2022:

'This book was recommended to me by someone else and I have to admit that it shattered my preconceived conceptions of what to expect from it.

The story starts fairly straight-forwardly with newly-married Lauren desperate to escape from the house that she and her husband Ben have to share with his parents while they save for a place of their own. The claustrophobic atmosphere in the house is wonderfully portrayed and gave credence to Lauren’s stupidity in falling for an online scam.

We all think we’re too clever to be taken in by a scam – until we are. The scam itself was slickly done despite the reader seeing clearly what was going on. However, the scam itself wasn’t the important part of the story for me. The way the author handled the impact that it had on Lauren and Ben, and how those ripples further impacted on those closest to them, showed that far more than money is lost in a situation like this.

This wasn’t a long read and was one that I finished in one, gripping sitting. I really felt for the characters and it’s one of those books that will stay with me.' - Alex Craigie

Another 5 star review for 'His Ladyship'

5.0 out of 5 stars A Heartbreaking Struggle to Find Oneself!

Reviewed in the United States on January 6, 2022 by Janice Spina

Verified Purchase

His Ladyship is a story of a sad, lost and confused soul who is trapped inside a man’s body but has all the emotions of a woman. But what can he do? He can’t get a job because he is not interested in doing what men do. When he tried he was tormented for being different and not manly enough. He longs to take a job in an office with women which is what he truly thinks he is.

Norman Wicks struggled from childhood with mixed feelings. On the outside he was a male but on the inside he was a female. As a child he only wanted to play with his sisters’ dolls and push around their pram. No one can understand that he doesn’t want trucks, cars and toy soldiers to play with. He wants a doll to dress and change.

He wasted most of his life before he made a life-changing decision to become a woman. This story is a heartbreaking tale of how some poor souls in life have had to struggle to find themselves and be who they longed to be. It took great courage and stamina for Norman to finally have a life and find love and acceptance from his family.

The author has done a commendable joy getting inside the mindset of this tortured soul. Anyone who has struggled as Norman has will gain confidence from reading this story.
