My Blog SCRIBBLE AND EDIT reflects my love of creative writing, design, literature and film. Check out my Poems & haiku, Romantic Flash Fiction; Blogfest Entries; Blog Awards and other prose and Flash Fiction. Do bear with me, as I will reciprocate with those genuine commenters on my blog.  BTW I sometimes withhold comments for challenges until later. Comments about the post are much appreciated. Thank you.
Comments based on others' comments can lead to misunderstandings that spread like whispers!

The only SURE way for me to follow you back is if you leave a comment. However, if your Blog has a black background and white writing then it makes my eyes squiffy...

DID I Notice Your Book? BLOGFEST

Alex J Cavanaugh and Ciara Knight are joining forces for this Blogfest .
Post about a book you’ve noticed. You can choose a book that you’ve read, something you saw on a blog or social media site, Goodreads, or a sales website. Anything that caught your eye because of a great cover, blurb or reviews, but DON’T tell the author that their book has been noticed. Instead, shout out on social media sites, and encourage others to do the same, until the author finds his/her book. Leave a blog comment at Ninja Captain Alex or Ciara Knight when the author finds their book.
Let’s blow up the blogsphere with great new reads! Only two rules:

1) You can’t post about your own book.
2) The book shouldn’t be on the New York Times or USA Today bestseller list.

This is your chance to shout out about a book that might not have been noticed by others.

Okay first the lovely Rachel Morgan is launching Part 1 of her YA Creepy Hollow Series in one printed volume and the book cover is awesome! She's a great writer too.
Check out my review here.

Milo James Fowler, an awesome writer, has a whole host of eBooks out. One in particular I have read a reviewed is Maikro: Haiku & Mirco-fiction.

In this volume, Milo shares an impressive and inspirational collection of haiku and mini stories for science fiction, fantasy and horror enthusiasts that have been independently accepted for publication in other online and print publications.

While the haiku don't always follow the traditional 5,7,5 syllable structure they are full of wonderful imagery, clever observations and wry humour. Themes covered include common phobias and vices; the possibilities and anomalies of time travel; parallel universes; global warming; space and planets; space flight; dreams to name just a few.
Milo's writing does not disappoint as he skilfully draws the reader into the fantasy, illusion or terror, building worlds and realities through his fertile imagination to create a satisfying punch-line that provides food for thought.

If Haiku and Micro-fiction don't appeal then he's got some awesome Sci-Fi stories, too.
