Yesterday was World Book Day. I was going to post this article on time, but when I sat down at the computer I became engrossed in my manuscript for Love Redeems, the third book in my Redcliffe paranormal romance series. Anyway, aside from writing, I am a life-long book lover. I probably mentioned that already. It kind of goes with the territory of being an author.
On Tuesday I took my daughter to our local library for a weekly ‘Rhymetime’ session. This is a great little group where babies and toddlers are entertained by singing nursery rhymes and reading books. The library assistant who ran the session informed us that in honour of World Book Day, our children would each receive a voucher for a free book. Fantastic!
She then encouraged the adults to peruse a pile of books on an adjacent table. These books were wrapped in brown paper, and were not labelled. We were invited to pick up a ‘mystery’ book and loan it from the library as part of their World Book Day celebration. I had to check it out! So I selected a juicy looking package and took it home.
How exciting to have a mystery book! When we returned home, I put it on the table and avoided it for as long as possible to prolong the excitement of this annual event. (Yes I am a geek!) So what was this book? Take a look:
It is a contemporary thriller set on a remote Scottish island. This is a genre that I haven’t read for a long time, so it will be quite a treat. Thank you World Book Day!
