Read This Week 08/04

Misbehavin’ Megan

I have had the pleasure of reading an early draft of Adam Lawler’s next book; Misbehavin’ Megan.

I have enjoyed reading adam’s work in the past , this new  tale proved to be no exception. A good story it should appeal to all sorts of people. A grown up romance free from pornographic detail …. because there is no real action to report.

Due to be published soon a great follow up to:

Read this week – Mirror Earth

I just finished reading P Z Walker’s science fiction story Mirror Earth.

P.Z. Walker – Mirror Earth

It was a bit slow to start but once it got going it was a great fun read. I give it 4* (out of 5)

The scenario was quite complex and took a while to set up, hence the slow start but the pace soon picked up.

The story is one of people thrown into an alien environment and how they cope.

Teams of scientists on two Mirror Earth’s are working to prove that parallel universes exist. As a result of an accident or mistake the two teams get thrown into the other universe.

The team from the Earth closer to ours finds itself in place with different wild life, no money and no clothes … How will they cope?

The team from the alien world, can they cope with the crowds, the money driven society and the coverings?

Will they get home again … find out by reading for yourself.

Yes in this case  Reading is fun

The Naked Warriors

The Naked Warriors is a  short story in the Rags to Riches Series.

Buy on Kindle Shop

This story is about the life and loves Captain Paul Johnston. Paul is the elder brother of Bea, the woman in the life of the Uncovered Policeman. while he has not appeared in the series to date, although he has been mentioned, so this is the first time we meet him.

Paul has been sent on detachment to the Falkland Islands as part of the British Forces defending the Islands. He has just received three letters from three different women. This afternoon he has the free time to read them too.

Captain Johnston, Paul Johnston, sat in the chair in his small room in the Officers Mess at RAF Mount Pleasant, the base for the RAF and British Army in the Falkland Islands. He had just received 3 letters, so he had collected a mug of coffee from the dining room and planned to read them all during the afternoon. Later that night he would be taking over as Duty Officer so until then he had a little quiet time to himself.

Interesting all three letters from women, if only two of them weren’t from his mother and his sister. The other one was from one of his former platoon commanders. He would save that one for last.”

Is it possible to have a more Uncovered Policeman than Rags? No, but Rags journey to riches has more twists and more turns in this new adventure,

The second of the Rags to Riches stories is another novella going under the title of

The  Uncovered Policeman – Abroad

It is currently being proof read. I am not relying on Word to do the checking this time.  I have a real expert on the job, Mrs Bun.
