Beyond the Eyes Trilogy Tour - Reviews, Author interviews plus much more!

  This is the first Book Tour that I have participated in and it isn't going to be my last! Lined up for you today is an exclusive Author interview with the one and only Rebekah Ford, A great book review on the first in the trilogy: Beyond the Eyes (Funnily Enough) and of course some more exclusive information for my great readers!

The first book: Beyond the Eyes is now available for free on

Author interview:

1. Was writing always your dream job?

Yes, and it still is.

2. How much do you write daily?

Not enough. I have a day job, so I write as much as I can in my spare time. Ideally, 2,000 words a day. However, I haven’t done that in a while because I've been busy with edits and rewrites at the moment.

3. Do you read lots and do you 'borrow' the ideas of other authors?

I read all the time and so far I haven’t borrowed any ideas that I can recall from other authors.

4. Have you got a favorite book or story?

Yes, Interview With The Vampire by Anne Rice.

5. Did an author inspire you to become a writer and if yes, who was it?

No, but Anne Rice’s stories still inspire me though.

6. Do you prefer e-books or real ones?

Real ones, I can’t read a book off a screen. It doesn’t feel right and is too hard on my eyes.

7. Are some of your characters based on people in real life?

Yes they are indeed!

8. Which three qualities do you think are most important for authors?

Passion, a reader and imagination.

9. Which is your favorite genre to read and which genre is your favorite to write?

YA paranormal on both questions.

10. What advice you give to young people who want to become authors themselves?

  Read a lot, write what makes you happy, not what’s popular at the moment, believe in yourself and story, regardless if other people do or not. Also, write every day, because the more you write the better you become. Oh, and study the craft and learn how the literary world works.

Review: Book 1

  I really enjoyed this book as it was both interesting and fun at the same time. It is a book for young adults and teenagers (Hence it being a YA Paranormal) The book spirals from darkness to light, good to bad, this is a great combination in my book (well this book anyway) I would recommend it to readers of the YA section and I do believe that they would enjoy it. The book has a fast pace, it is always on the move which is a really great thing for a novel as it keeps the readers busy. The one downside was that the book didn't have quite as much packed into the story line as I would have liked, but I'm sure that the other books in the trilogy will make up for that...

The last book: The devils Third is now available on, as is the second: Dark Spirits

Please do check that blog out as it has some great content that I think you guys will enjoy. So that's all for now, I will update you when the maintenance is completed and then should be able to hopefully start posting new book reviews on a more regular basis.
Thanks for all …

The Mermaid's Sister - Carrie Anne Noble

This book is quite surreal at times and is overall very good. Sometimes it is difficult to work out some things in the story but everything does become clear at the end of the novel. The book is set in Victorian times but it seems to be mostly timeless and it's time period didn't really affect the novel for me and it wasn't something that I thought about much whilst I read the book.

  The plot is rather good and it is written very cleverly. One of Nobles' strong points is her ability to create very real characters. She does this so well that at the end of the book you can almost sense the characters reactions and emotions to different events before they come which makes the author very skilled at her craft.

8/10 I enjoyed this one, did you? Let me know in the comments below or email your thoughts / opinions to:

The Periodic Table: A Field Guide to the Elements - Paul Parsons and Gail Dixon

The periodic table was originally thought in the early 1860's, as a way of organising new elements found by scientists, the table was redesigned a number of times by different scientists to sort elements in different ways. Eventually, they came up with the system that we have today, which you will see in science when you learn it at school or college etc.

  The book is a work of non-fiction and is designed to teach you about each singular element found in the modern periodic table, the book has a factfile of each substance accompanied with a very detailed overview of it. The book is full of wonderful ultra high definiton images which make the work seem fresh and gives it an extra sense of quality.

  The book really does teach you an awful lot about the elements, from Carbon to Einsteinium. Any budding scientist would love to add this to their collection I'm sure, the book is really interesting and is good for reading through thouroughly, just flicking through now and then or…
