Romance, Adventure And Random Moments.

Hello I’m DeeDee and I’d like to welcome you to my blog, please take a chair by the fire and if there are too many fluffy pillows just knock them off on to the floor! First of all thank you for visiting me, I don’t know what you’ve been told about me but I can tell you right now that almost 99% is untrue… what’s that??? What about my brownie addiction??? I have no idea what you’re talking about!!! So hopefully you’re here because you’ve heard that I write… no??? Oh well as I’ve got you here I’m going to tell you ALL about it anyway!!! Now you know why that armchair has restraints on it! I love to write, I always have, but it wasn’t until my Aunt suggested that I try writing a book that I began to think how great it would be to write something that people might read and hopefully enjoy. So I settled down to produce a masterpiece… predictably the 90.000 words of my first story, written at sixteen, was pretty poor… but I like to think that I learn a lot from it. In any case my failure didn’t put me off and my next attempt ‘Broken City’ was born! I’ve written five stories so far (plus a few short stories), three of which are published and the other two are awaiting editing. They will be available sometime next year. They are the second books in three different series! I also love to review! When I like a book I find it hard to stop talking about it!!! Now that’s out of the way would you like a nice cup of tea and a brownie???

Review: Timeline by David Wailing

Timeline (Auto Series) - David Wailing

This story really creeped me out.

It was just so horribly PLAUSIBLE!!! I could so easily believe that in the not too distant future we would all have an Auto. I could believe that the invasiveness of an Auto would quickly become "normal", and that all those innocent seeming updates would quickly turn into a nightmare if they were assessable to someone you didn't want to see them.

I've read a short by this author set in the same world ( in A Splendid Salmagundi) and both books left me the same vaguely unsettled feeling. Like I needed to close my Facebook account, get rid of my phone and get off grid AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE!!!
