Top Ten


Top ten - Words/Topics in a book that turned me off

Okay so this is a really hard post for me. Because the truth is I think anything can work in a book depending upon the way its written!! I honestly think that and I am willing to give anything a try. SO, I took this question to my Facebook Fans and below are the answers that I got. Do you agree? Disagree? Oh, and there are THREE things I added to the list on my own. (yes, I will note which three are mine so you can laugh at me, ha ha ha)

10. When people turn into rats. (drives me insane!) - This is the one I added. LOL. It’s silly but it’s the truth.

9. My husband doesn’t like the word “aback”. Naturally I try to use it in conversation as much as possible. ha ha ha ha. - I added this one too. LOL!

8. When characters cheat on each other.

7. When the main character has zero common sense.

6. Bad editing / Poor grammar

5. An abusive main character

4. When words or phrases are repeated over and over again.

3. Run- on sentences (I think I may be guilty of this in my books…. yikes!)

2. Books where the author talks down to the reader.

1. When books contain abuse toward animals or when animals are hurt or die. - This is mine as well.

Drag queens, a ghost and murder, oh my. Love spirits through the modern day tale of inheritance and greed, crossing the vale between worlds.

Inheriting a Scottish castle leads her on a wild adventure of Celtic chaos where she meets her gorgeous ghost. Finding her life in danger, Baillie calls the diva squad to the rescue: her friend Gillian Nation and his girls.

Will she choose her normal, safe existence or grab onto an unusual love that makes life magical?

Excerpt -

Chapter One 
The cat flattened itself to the carpet near the front bookcase, ears lost against its orange-striped head, frozen in fear. A terrified hiss leaked through his open mouth and, slinking backward, the cat spun and ran toward the back of the store.  Catching a brief flash of orange out of the corner of her eye, Baillie shook her head. “Now what’s gotten into Sebastian? Must be a mouse.” She fanned her painted fingernails along the spines of books stacked on the shelf beside her. Listening to the hushed clicking sounds of her nails against the bindings as she walked down the aisle, she inhaled the intoxicating aroma of paper and leather around her. She loved opening her bookshop every morning, where antique classics, used and new volumes of various sizes filled the shelves around her. Framed paintings by local artists dotted the walls between the bookcases.  “Morning,” Baillie called to the previously owned hardbacks without the slightest apprehension of appearing insane. She talked to inanimate objects all the time—great audience, no heckling. Besides, I’m alone in here unless you count the cat, and you can’t count on that spoiled feline for anything. Where did he dash off to just now in such a hurry?  A thin volume of poems lay exposed on a shelf. “You don’t belong here,” Baillie said, sweeping it up to reshelve. She hesitated; the book cover felt cold in her hand, the worn leather chilling her fingers, sucking the warmth from her fingertips in seconds. She quickly shook her head to keep her thoughts from running amok. Of course the book was cold; in the Northwest, things always seemed cold.  “I swear someone helps themselves around here at night. The least they could do is put the books back where they belong when they’re done.” She turned and pushed a ceramic bookend aside and placed the wayward book next to the others as a quick chill shivered down her spine.  “Hey, Einstein, ol’ buddy.” Baillie grabbed an ornate feather duster from a brass umbrella stand nearby and took a few housekeeping swipes against the framed lithograph hanging on the wall. “Dang, I’m looking more like you every day.” She checked her reflection in the glass. “Tell me, did you see who moved Robert Burns’ book of poems last night? Maybe I need to borrow your glasses —going blind in my old age and missed putting it away after closing.”  Baillie turned, whistling the theme song from Fame, at the end of the aisle. She missed seeing the slow, deliberate movement as the same book silently shifted out from the shelf. The dark brown edition slid away from the other poetry books, hanging suspended for a moment, then lay back on the empty surface of the shelf. The ceramic bookend moved, closing the empty gap.  The front door of the shop opened with a tinkling of metal chimes. “It’s just me,” yelled a female voice as she came in.  “I’m in the north quarter, Sally. Would you turn on the computer?” Baillie responded from somewhere behind the walls of books. “Time to open up, I guess.”  “No problem, boss.” Sally dropped her purse under the counter. 
Baillie knew her assistant’s routine by heart: She’d click the black toggle switch on the power strip with the toe of her shoe, sending juice to all the electronics at the same time. Baillie heard the calculator, printer and credit card unit each create its own hum as Sally pressed the power button.  “How are the hot flashes this morning?” Sally asked.  “Midlife under control, thank you very much young whiner.” Baillie dusted another shelf with a few fast swishes. “You can kick the personal heater on for a while.”  “Just a little damp for June this year, you know. Some of us don’t have the benefit of hormonal heaters,” she taunted.  “I heard that!” Baillie continued up and down the aisles, swishing the duster back and forth. Suddenly, a bitter cold swept around her, sending a blinding chill through her body. She gasped from the icy shock. Baillie couldn’t catch her breath as the splash of numbing cold flowed into her heart and out again, pounding inside her chest. The reddish blond hairs on the back of her exposed neck stood on end. Her teeth chattered against the chill, like Lucy Ricardo locked in the meat freezer.  “What the …?” She leaned against the shelving for support. “Whoa.” Baillie blinked rapidly and focused on her right hand, more specifically the beige metal shelf under her crimson-painted fingernails. The metal felt warm, warmer than her soul at the moment. Goose bumps traveled up her bare arms and under her short-sleeved blouse. Titles describing Scotland and its clans stood in military straight rows in front of her.  As quickly as it had struck, the air around her trembling body returned to normal temperatures. She took a shaky breath, mentally searching for some logical explanation for the bone-chilling cold. “Who turned the air conditioner on?” she whispered to herself with mock confidence. Looking around the cramped quarters of bookshelves as she moved away, the store seemed peaceful. She dropped the feather duster into a stand with a soft thud.

Character Interview with Cora Device from Returned and Before by author Keeley Smith.

Returned and Before Banner 450 x 169


Hi guys, today we are joined by Cora Device from Returned and Before by author Keeley Smith. I was told that the end of the interview would completely blow my mind, so let’s get on with it.



Character Name: Cora Device

Character Bio: I’m 17 years old, and will always remain 17 years old. How much does that suck? I recently found out that I’m a witch.... and I’m still mastering my power but I can’t tell you too much about it. I shouldn’t be talking to a commoner about such things... I live with my mum, who isn’t actually my mum because my real mum was hung for being a witch, but my mum now is pretty cool. I also work with another witch called Tabitha and I have a coven with witches in it... sorry, this could get confusing and for your safety I won’t tell you too much more.



Describe yourself what is your worst and best quality?

I would say my best quality is my sarcasm but some would disagree, I really like to push it and annoy them. My worst quality... I don’t have one

What is the one thing you wish other people knew about you?

That I’m a witch and I can kick their ass. Unfortunately we can’t tell commoners, you are really very lucky that Tabitha has allowed me to tell you and talk with you today.

What is your biggest secret something no one knows about?

Other than being a witch...I guess I keep it a secret that I’m afraid of death. I like literally fear it. I guess because when I’m going to die it will probably be the result of severe pain I fear it more. Trouble seems to find me no matter where I am.

What are you most afraid of?

The Corenthio Coven. When they come, they will come and kill us. I fear them.

What do you want more than anything?

A peaceful life, one where I can see my real mum again and work at the witch shop without any trouble.

What is your relationship status?


How would you describe your sense of fashion?

I wear what is comfortable, I’m not wearing one of those robe things that Tabitha wears. They are hideous. I would love to dress like Ember. She has amazing fashion sense and always looks beautiful.

How much of a rebel are you?

Now that I have my power I find the rebellious side of me is more difficult to contain. Occasionally I like to let it out, for a bit of fun.

What do you considered to be your greatest achievement?

Going through the change. If I hadn’t gone through the change then I would be dead, for real. I was strong enough to go through death and come out the other side. I’m proud of that.

What is your idea of happiness?

Family. For me, family is so important. They make me happy. Without them I wouldn’t be.

What is your current state of mind? Those three feeling push to the front of my mind... I remember seeing Evander’s face before I fainted... Jack’s screaming my name.... I don’t remember much more.

What is your most treasured possession?

My element. It is something passed through my mother’s side of the family. Now that it has returned, I feel a connection to them.

Which living person do you, most despise?

Evander... he has done things I will kill him for...

What is your greatest regret?

That I didn’t save my mum when she was hung during the trials, I should have saved her.

What is the quality you most like in a man?

He has to be caring and protective. I love that a man would stand in front of a witch and stand for me. He will probably have to do it too.

Which living person do you most admire?

Tabitha. She is such a strong, single woman who has lived her life exactly how she wanted to. I admire that she has no regrets about anything.

If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be?

I wouldn’t change anything about myself. The person I am today got me through some tough times, and that person will probably get me through many more.

Thanks for doing this interview but I think Tabitha may do something with your memory...sorry about that...

Huh? I….  Where the hell am I?

Pendle Hill Series

Book One

Keeley Smith

17 year old Cora Hunt has one wish, to live the life of a normal teenager. Her wish never comes true.

After her reluctant move to a sleepy village in the middle of Lancashire Cora's life is turned upside down when she discovers she is a witch. Cora is not just any old witch, she is the daughter of Alizon Device who was one of the most powerful witches of her time.

Dealing with her new found powers is quite a challenge, but when the past she didn't know about unearths new complications in the form of Jack Thomas, her life becomes increasingly dangerous with each waking minute. Jack also has a secret past, a past that clashes with Cora's.

A confrontation between the two results in a life or death situation. The brutal events of 1612 happened hundreds of years ago, but what Jack and Cora face is a definite déjà vu.

The only question is, will their fate be the same as those who perished in 1612?



A Pendle Hill Novella

Keeley Smith

Cora and Jack are childhood friends who have always lived next door to each other in a beautiful, idyllic part of Lancashire. What binds them as lifelong friends are their powers.

As young witches, life is hard. If the commoners find out their secret, they will be killed. But Cora is lucky, she has her best friend Jack by her side.

Having grown up together they know each other, they trust each other, they love each other. However their blossoming relationship is cut short by the events of one day. A date that will bring their perfect worlds crashing down around them.

20th August 1612

Cora and Jack are forced to face the reality of being a witch during these turbulent times, however they don’t know that their lives will become part of one of the most famous witch trials to have ever hit England.

The Pendle Hill witch trials of 1612.





I've always loved reading, it is a common known fact that I pretty much demolish a book a day. Expensive hobby, but a great one! I've dabbled with writing since the day I could actually write. So, it was only fitting that I had my first book published when I was 15.

If I'm not writing you would generally find me reading, creating jewellery, trawling social networking sites and listening to music. I will pretty much listen to any kind of music but I have two favourites, country music which has been with me since I was a little toddler and I also love to listen to movie scores, especially when I'm writing!

I currently live in Yorkshire with my husband.

Into the quiet village of Lindenhope comes Helen Graham, an attractive young widow and mother. Living alone with her son at Wildfell Hall, her seclusion attracts curiosity from the local people, in particular Gilbert Markham, whose interest in her is soon edged with desire—and Helen, despite herself, begins to reciprocate his love for her.

But when scandalous rumours begin to circulate about Helen’s behaviour, Gilbert is filled with anger and jealousy. Helen attempts to clear her name by offering Gilbert her diary, which reveals the dark, passionate story of her former marriage to debauched rake Arthur Huntingdon, whose sexual and sensual desires fill her with excitement and pleasure but precipitate a gradual descent into hell.

Gilbert believes he could forgive her anything, but the lies continue to spread, threatening Helen’s peace of mind and, above all, her physical safety. Will the secrets of Helen’s past get in the way of their future?

Excerpt -

He was already in the room when I entered. I felt his hands rest on my shoulders from behind and he gave a low chuckle at my gasp of surprise. I was in my nightgown—Rachel had helped me disrobe before retiring herself—and his breath heated the nape of my neck as he teased his fingers along the silk edging. I had chosen the material deliberately. It clung to my body, the sheen of the fabric highlighting every curve.

“Would you like me to undress, Arthur?” I asked.

“No, Helen,” he answered, pressing a kiss to my shoulder and sending a chill along my spine. “I want to undress you myself.”

My heart quickened, but I held myself still as slowly he slid the gown from my shoulders. The cool air on my skin made me shiver, my nipples hardening as the soft material dropped past my waist to land lightly around my feet, exposing my naked body to his gaze. I closed my eyes, feeling conscious of my bare skin, the curls at my quim, the growing wetness inside me.

“Don’t move,” he commanded, and with his fingers he began a slow, tortuous glide along the curve of my spine. I felt one hand slide around my ribs to cup my breast, his thumb brushing against my nipple, and I was unable to suppress a moan as sparks of pleasure radiated from that tender spot. Instantly the movement was repeated, his other hand mirroring the motion until I cried out, overwhelmed by the unfamiliar sensation.

“I love that this is all so new to you, my Helen,” Arthur whispered in my ear as I let my head fall back onto his shoulder, my body weakening as he continued his sweet assault on my breasts. My knees began to tremble. I clenched my fingers tightly, aching for his hands to move lower, to touch me where I had touched myself so often while thinking of him, but afraid he would think me too wanton if I asked. So new to me, indeed! What would he think if I touched myself in front of him? Would he be surprised? No—he would not, I was sure. But he might insist on pleasuring me himself, and my clit pulsed at the thought, imagining myself on the edge of ecstasy, him removing my hands and holding them until I begged him to bring me to completion.

He slid his hands down to my hips, leaving me moaning at the loss, and turned me to face him. Before I could stop myself, I reached my hand out to touch his swollen member, which jutted towards me, almost brushing against my stomach. He groaned as I closed my hand around the tip, which was glistening and sticky with moisture, hardening farther under my touch.

How strange it was to know that I had such power, that I could bring him such pleasure with only a simple touch! I tightened my grip, feeling the skin move as I tugged, but before I could continue he had caught both my hands in his and was holding them at my waist.

“My darling,” he said, with a smile, manoeuvring me backwards as he spoke until my calves hit the edge of the bed. “If I let you do that, I shall lose all control, and that will never do. Lie back for me—let me see you waiting for me.”

Trembling, I lay back on the bed, my breath coming faster as he stood watching me, his casual gaze lowering to rest at my quim. Instinctively I parted my legs, blushing as I felt the moisture seep from inside me and dampen my folds.

The smile on his face took on a possessive, lascivious quality.

“How beautiful you are,” he whispered. Slowly he placed one knee then the other on the bed, the mattress dipping under his weight as he moved towards me. He laid one hand on my breast, my heart beating rapidly beneath.

“Arthur,” I gasped.

He lowered his head and kissed my nipple, laving it with his tongue, then trailed more kisses down my body—my ribs, my stomach, my hips—until I was trembling with anticipation. His breath rushed over my quim, and for a moment I thought he would kiss me there—oh! How I wanted that!—but instead he paused, watching me with desirous eyes, and slowly slid one finger inside me to the second knuckle.

“So pure,” he whispered, caressing me as I moaned. He reached forward with his thumb and swept it back and forth over my clit. I cried out at the sensation, my body convulsing. It was so much sweeter, so much more pleasurable than when I had touched myself, and I longed for him to continue.

“Helen,” he growled, “tell me you want this.” I recognised the words from our first kiss, and felt my heart bound and my quim tighten at the knowledge that now I could be truthful. Now I could tell him what I wanted.

“I want this, Arthur.”

“Tell me how much you want this.”

“I want this more than anything,” I moaned. His finger was still moving inside me, his thumb still applying delicious pressure, and my wetness was leaking onto his hand and the bed.

“How long have you wanted this, Helen?”

Oh, he was torturing me! “Since I first met you,” I whispered, shifting my hips to match his touch. He smiled and crooked his finger inside me, touching a spot that made me clap a hand over my mouth and shriek—the pleasure was exquisite, and I was on the verge of begging him to take me.

“Tell me what you want, and I’ll do it.”

I arched my back, aching for him. “Please, Arthur, take me.”

5 Star Review for Caller of Light by TJ Shaw



5 out of 5 Stars

Caller of Light

By TJ Shaw

Carina Mckay was born a mix royal blood. And for this reason her life was more in the shadows then the light. Only pure blood’s enjoyed the full life of their world. But Carina’s world is about to change in a flash.

With the arrival of King Marek Duncan, Carina’s world is challenged and her true self is revealed. King Marek visiting to collect her sister as bride, found himself in a great battle to stay away from the captivating Carina.

When he finally can’t hold back anymore, it is Carina that he chooses to be his mistress. But the journey home is traitorous and traitors are everywhere. Will they be able to reach their home and find love in one another? Or will the world tear them apart?

Wow, Wow and double Wow. I loved this novel from page one to the end. And trust me when I reached the end I was screaming for more. TJ Shaw have created a smashing fantasy that takes you to another world filled with amazing creatures called the Criton. Strong dragon like beast, TJ Shaw describe them in such detail that you can picture them perfectly.

Carina was perfect! Right from the start the shows that courage isn’t something she lacks, but that she secretly keeps it hidden for only the right moments. I loved her! She was thought when she needed to be, strong willed and strong. Carina in my eyes was a perfect heroine.

When it comes to Marek I had a rollercoaster experience with him. He is an overall charmer but he makes some really bad mistakes. One mistake had me wishing I could reach into the book and strangle him. But in the end her made up for it and protected Carina from her evil sister and father.

I can’t wait to read more about this world. A well-deserved 5 Stars from me.
