What I’ve Written
Sometimes I’m overwhelmed with ideas. Sometimes, I wish I could grab a can of inspiration from the pantry.

What I’ve Read (reviews)
She’d Dance poem by Brian Bilston (Brian Bilston on Facebook) A beautiful, sad, poem about love, loss and dancing. Brian Bilston regularly shares great poetry – often funny, sometimes thought-provoking.
If I read it and I like it, or find it interesting, it goes in here. I try to only include one item from any single author in a week (even if I loved a number of things they published), because otherwise the list would get over-long.
I don’t do paid reviews, but I do accept recommendations, and even review copies of books, so if you’d particularly like me to review something, tell me about it.
Sorry about the reading list being so short this week. I’ve had to try to get a week ahead on my writing. Things unrelated to writing are happening here next week, and will take most of my time and energy. I still do plan to publish something every day, but it may be later in the day.
A Look at a Book
Rescuer? Predator? Imaginary childhood friend? Artist’s muse? Goddess? Ancient unspeakable evil? All of these and worse? You always knew you didn’t imagine that shadow that moved, the thing lurking just outside of your field of view, the items that weren’t where you left them. You always knew, but you chose to ignore it, because the alternative was unthinkable. From the slightly warped mind of author Iris Carden, comes a monster who can give you everything you ever wanted, for a price. The catch is, you don’t know the price when you accept deal. When a failing author and an artist at the start of her career discover inspiration comes at a cost, and the consequences will outlive them both. (This book is absolutely not for kids.)
Reviews for Muse:
Perfect October read……or any time, actually! Muse is a very fast paced, creepy story filled with some unique characters. Iris Carden gives you a good reminder of why if something seems too good to be true, you should RUN! – Dawn (Amazon)
Goosebumps! Great read! No feet left sticking out of the covers after reading this one! Yet another great book from Iris. Looking forward to the next publication! – TvR (Amazon)
