The Vixen Scream and other Bible Stories
by Nancy Stohlman
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.29

5.0 out of 5 stars ... to Nancy Stohlman's weird and wacky world in this wonderful collection of short stories, 8 Nov. 2014
Welcome to Nancy Stohlman's weird and wacky world in this wonderful collection of short stories. Turtle Tears is outstanding and the line 'Love should be approached like a cobra' made me laugh out loud in the story My Boyfriend Lives in a Tree in Front of my House.

5.0 out of 5 stars Flashy ..., 20 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Twenty quirky tales delivered in short sharp bites. Favorites are Out Of The Mouth Of Babes and The Alchemy of Chocolate but all are classic Flash Fictions with a small fleeting slice of life offered for our enjoyable ingestion. This is Debbie Young's first collection and I look forward to her inevitable next.

Debbie Young has written a moving and informative account of how Type 1 Diabetes has impacted on two members of her immediate family. Three cheers (and five stars) to Debbie for this awareness-raising book and to the charity JDRF which is committed to research into this potentially devastating disease.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Very Useful Handbook ..., 4 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Debbie Young leaves no stone unturned in this excellent guide to promoting and selling books. She writes very well, offering clear and concise advice on the many aspects of social media including setting up your own website and the advantages of engaging on Facebook and Twitter. There are good suggestions too on how to use local media and also a comprehensive point by point model for the best way to approach the mainstream reviewers. A very useful handbook for any self-published author looking to increase book sales.

Compact, poignant and goes straight to the heart - with an unexpected twist at the end. Written when the author was just sixteen makes it all the more impressive. Well done!

5.0 out of 5 stars a real page-turner, 24 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pattern of Shadows (Paperback)
The author sets a perfect pace in this moving and completely believable love story, told against the backdrop of Northern England during World War Two. It's extremely well written with excellent characterisation and an obvious in depth knowledge of the time and place. But be warned ... once started it's impossible to put down, and will have the reader tightly gripped in it's hands to the very end.


Make it Happy: A short guide to long term relationships
Make it Happy: A short guide to long term relationships
Price: £1.99

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful gem ..., 14 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This excellent self-help book is written in the format of a conversation between the two authors John Hill and Sadie Wolf, who are themselves a couple, as they explore and offer insights into the hotbed areas of relationships such as Money, Sex, Housework, Love and Fidelity.

Ideas such as how to deal with the toilet seat issue without seeming like nagging, and that it's OK to be a slob around the house in track suit bottoms as long as you make the effort to dress up at other times, are muted along with the importance of having that conversation about money before you move in together. And indeed ensuring good communication with each other is the theme throughout.

The authors are open and honest as they share and analyse their own past experiences in an effort to shed light on their present relationship with each other. This is conveyed in a comfortable and laid-back style where although the topics are intimate at times, one never feels like a voyeur, but like an accepted third party in the room. Written primarily for those in long-term relationships, it will in fact greatly benefit all who are in any kind of romantic relationship.

The overall message of the book is comforting as John says "Trying to be perfect is pointless." Hear Hear.

5.0 out of 5 stars wonderful, 11 Oct. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Wonderful. I expect this book to become a bedside bible for all those who are chronically sick . Toni Bernhard intertwines her own personal experience of ME/CFS with selected Buddhist exercises to nurture the body, mind and soul. Excellent, and a must buy for anyone who is chronically sick or indeed those caring for them.
