I have a release date for the second book in the Old School series. Each novel is a stand alone read, but there’s a lightly connecting story arc for the series. Fantastical Island comes after Phoenix Blood (out Dec 27).
Someone is hunting the fantastical creatures of Catalina Island.
Do you look at art online? Any favourite sites? My Modern Met is pretty cool.
Kindle Unlimited Discoveries
I’ve found some great books in Kindle Unlimited. I’m loving Helen Harper’s Highland Magic series – Last Wish (the final book) is out in a couple of days. Can’t wait!
I’m also enjoying the first book in a new (to me) mystery series with a handsome, gentlemanly detective chief inspector. It reminds me a bit of an up to date Ngaio Marsh mystery. Holy Island by LJ Ross had a nice touch of romance, too. (Warning: it does get a bit gruesome re the murders).
No, I haven’t put my Christmas tree up yet. This is the West Australian Christmas tree that I was nattering about a few weeks ago. They’re just beginning to flower.
You probably already know this – it’s pretty obvious, I guess – but I’ve just found out about using a few drops of essential oils on cotton wool balls and placing them in cupboards/wardrobes to keep clothes and linens fresh. I used to put lavender soap on a shelf. This is better. You don’t need much oil and you can get the fragrance you want with a little drop of this and a little of that. I used lavender and ylang-ylang.
Are you ever shocked by the simple things you never thought to try?
