Q & A session with the Bookworm Girl

 

Many thanks to the Bookworm Girl an awesome book blogger who hosted me and the novel, What If I Go? here-

http://bit.ly/2tDzFzq

The questions were interesting and were great to reflect upon in my writer journey. Hopefully, I have inspired others to put pen to paper. The novel is aimed at empowering women.

For all those who ask, ..’but what can I do?’ over difficult circumstances or tragic events then my answer might just be, ‘Why not write about it?’

Raising awareness is sometimes all we can do to help traumatic situations. Signposting vulnerable people and victims to support organisations that deal with sensitive issues such as grooming and sexual exploitation is satisfying. At the end of the book there are pages dedicated to victims giving the contact details of helpful organisations for support.

New Adult Book Review-The Healing process was Slow & Long

My thanks go to fellow author Magdel Roets from South Africa. I appreciate her time and care.

Her review said …’Polly White leaves us with the hope that there is always a way out and that turning back to the Lord God, trusting Him and leaving everything in His capable hands, is the way to total restoration. What If I Go is a story that has a distinct warning and a message of joy awaiting on the other side of trouble.’

Self set or weeds?

20170704_102248

I said it with flowers. Sometimes formal isn’t best, though. These country flowers smell great and cheer up a table and the home it’s in. Many of the clipped foliage in the vase could be counted as weeds. There are even grasses, for goodness sake. That doesn’t mean to say they’re less valuable, in my opinion…

Nature does a grand job of raising a smile through the rich tapestry of flora it provides. Or is it God giving the free gift of a sweet aroma for all?

Either way, don’t forget to smell the roses.

An Amazing Book Review!

My heartfelt thanks go to Valicity Garris who posted a marvellous review of ‘What If I Go?’ 20 DAYS AGO!

Sorry, I’m so late giving my heartfelt thanks. Put it down to a crazy, heat haze that’s just clearing. However, I do really appreciate the time of reviewers amongst their busy schedule.

All good things go to those who wait…

I am sooooo happy! Not bad for a debut? Please go ahead and check the novel out for your friends and family.

Election-I’m writing

Well, I’ve dodged the showers and gone down to vote. What a job the next government have to do!

Don’t forget to mark your cross…

Today I edited a short story. At the moment, I couldn’t write the news. Are we in for a shock tomorrow? We’ll soon see.

The world will keep spinning and the

rain will continue to

fall and the

sun shine.

We are truly blessed.

Let’s continue to count our blessings.

Keep on keeping on.

Review of a similar story-The Bigger Fish

This short story mirrors my own, What If I Go? It is suitable for a younger audience if you find my novel too challenging this will more subtly warn young adults onward of the dangers of taking hard drugs.

It also raises awareness of the sensitive topic of sexual exploitation within a short story.

The book is called ‘The Bigger Fish’ by Magdel Roets see

I highly recommend this empowering quick read. Happy Reading!

 

Old fashioned fruit cake treat!

20170506_141537

This Christening cake has been under construction since November. I’m happy to have finished it for a real deadline. There have been layers involved similar to those techniques required in creative writing. Polishing involved several editing tasks; things seen and unseen. The proof of the pudding will be in the eating…

The baby it was made for is only six months older than the cake that was definitely designed with parents in mind. This fruit is laced with rum so will deliver a kick! I’m making healthier puffed rice nibbles for the little ones, fear not.

The daisies are edible and sweet indicative of the young life they represent. Yay!

My debut novel for New Adults is less palatable, maybe? My next writing recipe includes short stories. To make them palatable or tasty? That is the question.

Reality may well prioritise. I don’t want to induce sickness but good health.

Book Giveaway

Yay! My suspense novel, ‘What If I Go?’ is safely on its way to another happy reader. Thanks for taking part in my book giveaway.

Also, there are still free PDF’s available for reviewers. Just ask, I’ll sort it.

Trusting that the springlike fine weather is fast upon us. I’m enjoying chocolate so much recently that what-if-i-go-001-1salad days are looming…

Don’t forget that the ebook can be downloaded very reasonably, if you are one of the disappointed. Please go here for further details- myBook.to/pollyjwhite

Happy Easter!

Okay! I admit that there were definitely chocolate eggs on this humming-bird cake. Not in the original recipe…However, the pineapple banana and pecans were so good for me. And I took the chocolate off my piece but so enjoyed the rest.

Needless to say, I had considerable help from the family to keep me from falling into the chocolate chomping trap.

Trusting that you can share such a feast over the holiday. With chocolate or without?

Easter- More than eating chocolate

I am really looking forward to eating chocolate after Lent, don’t get me wrong!

However, my sacrifice was nothing. I’m celebrating passion week with a free giveaway of my thriller giving the heads up to students about staying safe from gangs.

Please, join in the fun. Someone has to win. Like this post or follow me on Twitter  @pollyjwhite4.

Enjoy the countdown to a long weekend.
