FOGMAKERS by Deirdre Devlin!


Four children sleep peacefully in their isolated farmhouse unaware of sinister dark shapes creeping towards them in the fog. When one of the children, Christopher, is kidnapped, the others must join forces with strange creatures who've come from a dark and dangerous secret kingdom. 

Together they must save not just the boy but the kingdom itself. To do so they must first overcome the terrifying Negatron machine and eerie Time Slice that allows them to move forward and backwards in time but from which, nobody has ever returned alive. This is the Kingdom of the Fogmakers, a secret world on our very doorstep and the children are the first humans ever to enter.

Updates and Things!

So, it's been a long time really, yes I have posted about fellow author's books and review's for my two book's but nothing about what is happening with me. Well, would you want to know, that is the question. You have no choice but don't worry, its just a sentence or two if you don't mind.

The end of July, 29th to be precise I tuned 50, yes the big 50 and you know what, it's rather grand to say 50 when I'm asked my age and not 49. As whenever I said I was 49, all I heard was, "NOT LONG TO THE BIG ONE." So the big one came and it has now gone, so time to reflect......................................Reflection complete and now to see out the rest of the next half century.......well okay, maybe a quarter then! 

My next project is my next book, my third. No title as yet, as I believe a title should come once the book is complete, just like the naming of the chapters. Exactly what I did with Wrong Place Wrong Time and My Way. It's just my way of doing things, each to their own I guess.

I am 25k words into my third book and it has been like that for a few months, as I have started a new job, and moved, the things that get in the way, so it has been on the back burner for some time. But now I am ready to tap away, as I am doing right now and complete the book and send to my brilliant editor Elaine Denning, who will no doubt be thinking, "You should have sent this blog post to me to edit before publishing it." but I have to do something on my own for a change. I am 50 for heavens sake!

Also, I'm rather chuffed with the rankings for Wrong Place Wrong Time, currently #3 in Biography in UK and was #1 in Spain, Australia and Canada. Also in the top 50 in Drama as well. But what has amazed me is the number of reviews, over 330 with 200 being 5* and 52 being 4*. Yes there are 1/2/3* reviews, and that is the beauty of personal opinions, which keeps it real of course. If one could please everybody, one would bottle it and sell it, wouldn't one?

Well that is about it really, thank you for reading, if you have enjoyed me muttering along, let me know and we can do it again some time!

198 X 5* review for WRONG PLACE WRONG TIME!

#198 X 5* review for WRONG PLACE WRONG TIME!

A tale which should be read. Both harrowing and haunting.
"Reading Wrong Place Wrong Time left me in a bit of a quandary. Did the main character get his just desserts? Was the ending what I wanted it to be? Well, to be honest, that is neither here nor there, as Wrong Place Wrong Time is a true story, and as a result, only had one possible ending. Whether it's the one that the reader desires is not up for questioning. This book intrigued me from the moment I read about it through social media. I deliberately shied away from scanning other numerous reviews of the author's work as (a) the real David is an extremely affable chap (which is not something that can always be said for the 'character' David - but then who's perfect in life?) and (b) I like to make my own decisions. I'm glad I did as now I see a debate rages as to whether this book is believable or not. For me, it is. And a gripping read. At times I didn't understand the lead character's actions as he faces his hideous journey into a hellish time in Spain - why did he do this? - why would he do that? - but again, I think that is truly apt and spot on for what most of us do in life. No-one is perfect. We can all regret doing something and the subsequent consequences that occur as a result. No spoilers here from me as I believe this a tale which should be read. David's words transport you perfectly along his somewhat bumpy and gritty ride and even though maybe you shouldn't always be on his lead character's side (that being the real David of course) I found I did sympathise with him. I wished him well despite not always wishing he'd followed a certain path. I would recommend Wrong Place Wrong Time quite happily. David is skilled at what he does with his writing, and also with his tireless and varied marketing. I salute his story, I salute his words, I salute his ability to write what must been a most definitely soul-cleansing but also deeply harrowing story. After all, it was his. He's lived every word, and I'm glad I was able to now share it."
