Perfect Boyfriend, the banner photo ThePerfectBoyfriendTourBanner_zpsade38a3e.png

Perfect Boyfriend, The photo PerfectBoyfriend_zps3bf90909.jpgThe Perfect Boyfriend by Renee Novelle 
(Boyfriend #2)
Publication date: July 27th 2014
Genres: New Adult, Romance

Synopsis:
The Perfect Boyfriend picks up right where we left Reagan and Ian in The Boyfriend List.

As their friendship blossoms quickly into a steamy romance, Reagan and Ian have to learn to navigate their shifting relationship…and everything that entails. But their newfound bliss doesn’t come without a few unexpected challenges.

In the midst of realizing just how sweet the romance can be between them, and all the benefits of their new dynamic, Reagan is informed that her ideal situation has changed. Not only will she need to begin taking on more classes to speed up her graduation date, but she’ll also have to start looking for a job to supplement her fading income. Meanwhile, Ian has chosen to pull out of school once his father is diagnosed with a terminal illness in order to help manage the family business and spend time with him while he still can. But he wrestles with the guilt of leaving Reagan behind, and the pressure of his new responsibilities.

As the two meet their new challenges head-on, they’ll be forced to discover whether or not they’re as compatible as lovers as they were as friends. With their focus pulled in so many directions, will they have what it takes to keep a long distance relationship alive? Can Ian prove that he’s still be the perfect boyfriend, or will they fold to statistics under the growing tensions of their lives? Throw in some manipulative exes, a new boss with an inflated ego, and a co-worker from hell and the two have a recipe for either a fairy tale ending, or a complete disaster.

The Perfect Boyfriend is a New Adult Romance about trust, love, and discovering the true depths of personal strength.

Excerpt:
The black Camaro was shimmering under the fading sunlight, fresh from a detailed washing earlier that day. Reagan reached for the handle to the passenger side door, as she had at least a dozen times before, but Ian put a hand up to stop her. Instead, he drew the door back himself, opening it in a chivalrous move that revealed something in the seat waiting for her -  a slim, robin’s egg blue box wrapped with a crisp white bow. 
“What’s this?” Reagan inquired excitedly after immediately recognizing the trademark packaging. 
“I wanted to get you something special.” He said, smiling mischievously as he leaned down to retrieve the box and place it in her eager hands. “Something to remind you of what you mean to me, and how important this night is.”
Reagan eyed him suspiciously, but her fingers trembled as she pulled at the bow and opened the box. A tiny gasp of surprise emerged from her throat, and the familiar sting in her eyes returned as tears of joy pooled, threatening to spill down her cheeks. Blinking them back, she looked up at Ian then back down at the delicate silver bracelet that was stretched the length of the box. It was a dual silver chain, knotted sweetly around a silver infinity symbol. 
“It’s beautiful.” She exclaimed, her voice the hushed whisper of a woman impressed. 


“I want you to know that this is real for me.” He began as he removed the token from the box and began to clasp it around her right wrist. “This isn’t just another first date. This is the beginning of forever for you and me. And if you decide that’s not what you want down the road, that’s fine. But Reagan, my intentions aren’t just to find another short-term girlfriend. I want you, all of you, for as long as you’re willing to give me.”

Blog Tour: Make It Right (Bowler University #2) by Megan Erickson @MeganErickson_ @GCReading @WmMorrowBks @Morrow_PB


Title: Make it Right
Author: Megan Erickson
Series: Bowler University #2
Publication: September 9th, 2014 by William Morrow Impulse

Max Payton lives by two rules:

Size and strength win any fight, and never show weakness.

When a rash of assaults sends Bowler University for a tail spin, Max volunteers to help teach a self-defense class. One of the other instructors is the beautiful pixie-faced girl he keeps butting heads with…and who challenges everything he thought he knew.

Lea Travers avoids guys like Max - cocky jocks who assume she's fragile because of a disability caused by a childhood accident. She likes to be in control, and something about being with Max makes her feel anything but. But during the moments he lets his guard down, Lea sees a soul as broken inside as she is outside. Trusting him is a whole other problem...

When the assaults ramp up and hit close to home, Lea and Max must learn, before it’s too late, that true strength can come from vulnerability…and giving in to trust is sometimes the only way to make things right.

Brooke's Review:
I want to thank William Morrow for providing me with an early copy of this book to read and review. Receiving this book for free has in no way altered my review or opinion.

What I love about books like this is that they can be read as stand alones even though some of the characters may have been introduced or had their own stories in previous books. It's nice to get to know them from other books but not necessary

Since I knew Max a bit from the first book, I wasn't sure what I would think of him in this one. I didn't think I could fall for him but I kind of did! He came off as so arrogant and didn't seem to treat women all that well. But deep down Max wants to just please people. And he's stuck in a place with his family that he doesn't know how to escape. He feels like he'll never get to live the life he wants to live and be happy. So when he gets a taste for Lea he's in for a big surprise. He tries to come off as confident and coky, a know it all, but she shows him fast she can put him in his place. On the flip side, you can see that Max has a romantic and sensitive side that he doesn't really want to show to anyone. But Lea changes that!

Lea is spunky and downright strong. I love how she doesn't take anything from anyone and stands up for herself no matter what. So when she starts to fall for Max, I'm a bit surprised, but they kind of compliment each other in ways that I wasn't expecting. Where she is strong, he is actually weak, though he would never admit to it. Her vulnerability is heightened around him, though she doesn't want to show it.

Both these characters become vulnerable when they start to open up to each other, slowly breaking each other's walls down. They compliment each other as they both learn about love, forgiveness, and going after exactly what you want and what will make you most happy. Megan fills some moments with fluff, but for the most part their relationship is a roller coaster of emotion as they tear down each other's walls.

Megan's writing is fun and fresh. I will say that I have issues with getting into books told in third person for the most part, but Megan really does it well and doesn't make it awkward. I was never worried that I wouldn't like this story, because it wasn't predictable. There was lots of depth and character growth.

Anyone who loved the first book in this series will be super happy with this one, as well. Maybe even more so, I know I was. If you're a fan of Cora Carmack or Jennifer Armentrout, I think you'll absolutely love Megan's series! I'm looking forward to future books in this series.

Blog Tour: Some Boys by Patty Blount @PattyBlount

Some Boys Banner photo SomeBoys_TourBadge_zpse0845662.jpg


Some Boys photo SomeBoysCover-2_zps63cb6399.jpgSome Boys go too far. Some Boys will break your heart. But One Boy can make you whole.

Seventeen-year-old lacrosse player Ian Russell—sidelined by a concussion—is sentenced to spend spring break scrubbing out lockers. It’s bad enough when Ian discovers his partner for the week is Grace Collier, the girl who claims his best friend raped her at a party in the woods a few weeks ago. But what sucks most of all is that he used to have a thing for Grace… before Zac MacMahon got to her first.
Grace wants to crawl into one of the lockers and die. Ian was the only reason Grace even bothered to go that stupid party, but he never showed up. Not until… after. Suddenly, someone was shaking her awake. The last thing she remembers is the expression on Zac’s face. But Zac told the entire school the sex was consensual and posted a video on Facebook to prove it. Her best friends have abandoned her and even her parents aren’t too sure.
But Ian and Grace surprise each other. He never disrespects her, and she even helps him when a dizzy spell hits. Ian still likes Grace with her bad-ass style. Unlike the rest of the school, who has rejected Grace, calling her a slut and a liar, Ian is funny and kind with secrets of his own. But how do you trust the best friend of the boy who raped you? How do you challenge your best friend and call him a liar? How do you believe in love?

Excerpt:
First Kiss

He tugs me closer. “How are you gonna hurt me when I’ve got your hands trapped?”
I go completely still. Ian Russell is holding my hands. Ian Russell is holding my hands. And there’s no pressure in my chest, and I haven’t warped back in time to the moment when I knew I couldn’t stop Zac from taking what he wanted from me. Jesus, a boy is touching me, and it’s kind of okay. And for maybe the first time in forty days, I laugh.
“What’s so funny?” He looks at me sideways.
“Glad you asked.” I grin. Since he’s on the floor and I’m not, all it takes is a simple shift of my weight, and a second later I’ve broken out of his hold and have him pinned.
“Impressive. Ow. Very impressive. Ow. I’ll applaud once you let me go.”
“Stop crying.”
“I will when you let me go.”
I should probably let him go.
But I don’t.
My heart’s racing from the power trip of taking Ian down, or maybe it’s just because I’m so close to him and thought this was over for me. His muscles go lax. He stops struggling, and I don’t let go. I want to freeze this moment and keep it—keep him—forever. Slowly he leans in closer and closer, and I still don’t let go. His eyes drop to my mouth, and his tongue darts out to lick his lips. I think he wants to kiss me, and damn it, I want him to—I want him to so badly I almost cry, so I don’t let go. Closer, closer, and his eyes shut, and his head tilts. And I don’t let go. His lips touch mine, and he kisses me like it matters—like matter—and oh, my God, it’s amazing. He’s amazing, and I don’t let go. And then the steel door on the floor below us screeches open, and Ian goes tense, his eyes darting to the stairs at the far end of the hall. And it hits me.
Ian doesn’t want anyone to see him with the school slut.
So I break our No Zac agreement. “You wanna know why I didn’t fight off Zac? Because I was unconscious.”
Ian’s eyes snap to mine and then away, but it’s too late. I already saw the disgust in them.
This is when I let him go.

Indie Author Interview and Giveaway: Welcome Jacqueline E. Garlick @garlickbooks


Welcome to Author Interview Thursday hosted by the Never Too Old for YA and NA Books group on Goodreads. September is our Indie Author Interview month and we're very excited to share it with you!

Today we welcome Jacqueline E. Garlick to the group and blog for an interview!

Lumiere photo Lumiere-JacquelineGarlickebooksm_zpsd4368479.jpgOne determined girl.

One resourceful boy.
One miracle machine that could destroy everything…

After an unexplained flash shatters her world, seventeen-year-old Eyelet Elsworth sets out to find the Illuminator, her father’s prized invention. With it, she hopes to cure herself of her debilitating seizures before Professor Smrt—her father’s arch nemesis—discovers her secret and locks her away in an asylum.

Pursued by Smrt, Eyelet locates the Illuminator only to see it whisked away. She follows the thief into the world of the unknown, compelled not only by her quest but by the allure of the stranger—Urlick Babbit—who harbors secrets of his own.  

Together, they endure deadly Vapours and criminal-infested woods in pursuit of the same goal, only to discover the miracle machine they hoped would solve their problems may in fact be their biggest problem of all.


Welcome Jacqueline, take it away!

Did you always know you wanted to be a writer or did you want to be something else? 
I’ve always written and drawn and painted since I was very small. Earliest account, by my mother’s confirmation, I was three, sitting on my sister’s lap drawing the cartoon that used to appear in the back of magazines for a chance to win a prize. (Apparently, I always wanted to be a winner, too!) I’ve always told stories, too. One infamous one when I was three was about myself as a mouse living in the cupboard of my family’s kitchen, before I made the choice to come live with them. Unfortunately, it took me a long time to get back to my earliest passions, diverted by the saddle of responsibility, I took jobs I was less than passionate about, always looking forward to one day being able to write and create art. So glad to be spending my days that way now!
How long does it take you to write a book from start to finish?
It takes me about two months to write the first draft of a book. It then takes me anywhere from four mouths to two years (apparently) to re-write that draft. (I say two years because that is how much time I spent editing and improving LUMIERE.) It was definitely more difficult when I was focusing on publishing traditionally. It takes a lot of perfection to be that one grain of sand that gets through the New York publishing house hourglass. Now that I’m self publishing, I can relax a little, but for me, the quality still needs to be there, so I give books whatever time they need to become great stories. It also depends on the depth of the plot and what type of story I’m telling. Science fiction and fantasy books take longer because you have to define the world, build it from the ground up, establish the world’s rules, create unusual, yet believable characters—that all takes time. Whereas, a contemporary plot is a bit easier to complete, because the reader automatically understands the world. That kind of novel I can re-draft it in about three or four months time.
How do you come up with themes for your stories?
I’ve discovered that my writing generally centers around one consistent theme and that is, the quest for justice. I guess subconsciously, my mind is obsessed with my characters obtaining the justices I’ve been denied in real life. HA!
Do you have a schedule of when you write? 
Yes, I do have a schedule. I typically write every day, almost all day, while my son is in school. I treat it like a job. I start around 8:30 – 9:00 after he gets on the bus and I write until he gets off the bus around 3:30. I sometimes take a short break to grab something to eat at lunch, but most of the time I’m so engrossed, I write straight on through the lunch hour. I don’t write on weekends, on whatever day my son has sports (he plays soccer, volleyball) but I do sometimes sneak in some writing on the opposite day. For me, writing is a full time vocation. I also write in a room with lots of windows, because I love light, but it has to be silent when I’m writing. I can’t write with noise.
How are you able to balance other aspects of your life with your writing?
That’s a toughie. I’m not sure that I do balance the two aspects very well. HA! In fact, I’ve been known to skip family functions to attend special writing conferences. (Yes, I’m that obsessed!) There’s a very funny story about my family having to eat a one-legged Turkey for Thanksgiving at a relative’s house, while I was away at writer’s retreat in the US, where I’d earned a scholarship. But we’ll save that for another time. (PS: Canadian and US Thanksgivings are not at the same time.)
What elements do you think make a great story line? 
I have a passion for books with deep hidden meaning, not the kind that knock you over the head with it. I like to come away from reading something having learned something about myself, or others, or the world. I like to be forced to think a little when I read. Therefore, I tend to write what I’d like to read. Thus, developing themes in books is very important to me, but again, not ones that knock you over the head with their message. Just ones that poke you a bit keep you on the edge of your seat a little, force you to feel and wonder and think. Hopefully! HA!  I also (heart) books that resonate with you long after you’ve finished them. Books with characters you’re sad to say goodbye to, that you’d like to go have a coffee with long after you’re finished reading their adventure. I strive to create those types of characters in my books, because I feel the essence of any book really comes from memorable characters. 
What was the hardest thing about writing a book?
Knowing when it’s finished. I honestly believe I could write the same book forever and ever. Tweaking here. Revising there. For me, it’s really hard to know when it’s time to let go, and believing it’s good enough for the world to read.
How many books have you written so far? Do you have a favorite? 
I’ve written six full novels. I haven’t released them all. My favorite? It’s hard to choose a favorite, it’s like choosing my favorite among my children, but if you’re going to force me, I’d have to say, I love LUMIERE the most. I LOVE the characters and the world and the inventions, (especially the inventions!) but I also love a book I haven’t released yet entitled, RAGING BITCH QUEEN. (Yeah, you heard that right!) I love RBQ because it’s completely different to LUMIERE in that it has a contemporary setting and a very sassy fun, funny voice. I also love it because it is partially based on the struggles my daughter and I faced, trying to see eye to eye, throughout her teen years. 
Do you have a favorite character?
Hands down, I love to write Iris from LUMIERE. She is such a challenge because, of course, she doesn’t speak. It is extremely difficult to bring a mute character to the page and still have her stand out enough to win a tender spot in a reader’s heart, let alone become a reader favorite. Though fan mail, I’ve been told readers adore Iris and want to read more of her, which I guess, means I’ve accomplished what I set out to do. (yay)
When deciding on how to publish, what directed you to the route you took? 
Failure. HA! No. I think a more accurate term for it would be, rejection. I spent six years beating down the doors of traditional publishing, nearly five with a top agent. Though I received consistent glowing feedback from top editors at major houses, my work was never chosen, and it was starting to affect me, creatively. I felt as though my best was never, and would never, be good enough. Then I attended a weeklong writer’s workshop taught by Donald Maass, (on my relentless quest for New York publishing house perfection) where I was lucky to have a thirty-minute private interview with Don. Not only was Don excited enough about my work to try to get me to jump ship and be represented by one of his agents, he praised my work in such a way that made me realize my work was good enough and ready to be read by the world. There just wasn’t room for it in the inn. Because publishing houses couldn’t find room for it on their shelves, didn’t mean it wasn’t worthy. In fact, according to Don, it was quite the opposite. I gained a lot out of that meeting but there was one thing Don said that never left me, and that was, “If you can write like this, why are you begging at the gates of publishing? Why don’t you boot down the door and walk right through?” I remember not knowing exactly what he meant by that. Was a top NY agent advocating for me to self publish a particular piece of my work? I left that meeting, mind reeling, trying to process what happened. A potential offer, a loaded suggestion…so many things he’d said made so much sense. Sadly, I wasted another full year being rejected by top houses and chasing an illusive measure of perfection, before I finally came to my senses and took the world and character I loved and set them off into the world.
Have you gotten feedback from family about your book(s)? What do they think?
My husband is my first reader, my second reader, my sometimes eleventh reader, and my last. (He’s a trouper, no?) He will let me know if things sound wonky, or if I’ve used the wrong word (which I do a lot) or if the plot is going astray in some obscure way. He is very bold and very honest, which I appreciate most of the time! HA! He gets all bent out of shape when I make up words (which I love to do) and starts shouting, “Who do you think you are, Stephen King?”
Despite all the craziness, I love him for all of it. He is a great GREAT help to me. I couldn’t do it without him.
I also have a good friend and fellow writer, Rosemary Danielis, who reads over my work and has a keen ear for story and an even keener eye for errors. She too, is an amazing help and frank friend, and I love her for it.
Did I answer the question? What do they think?
Well, they seem to like my work! Believe me, if they don’t like something about it, I hear about it!
What kinds of things do you like to do outside of writing?
I love to watch my youngest son, now nearly fourteen play travel soccer. I love to watch his games. I get so into them, I feel like I’m running every step of the play along with him. (Though he’s so much better than I’d ever be!) I also love it when my older kids come home to visit. They were all home for Christmas last year and it was the biggest treat, hasn’t happened in years. I also love to read on the porch at dusk in the summer, and draw and paint and sculpt. I drew special thumbnail sketches in the front of the limited edition copy of LUMIÈRE that I offered to readers as collector pieces, when it was first released. Though they are expensive, I’ll likely offer a limited number of them again when I release NOIR.
What kinds of advice would you give to someone who wants to start writing? 
Make sure you really love what you are doing, and that you have really tough skin. It’s so easy today for people to have an opinion and state it today, and for some reason, it seems that spewing negativity has become a very popular art form. It’s true, not everyone is going to love what you have to offer, and they don’t have to, but you need to be prepared. I’d also say, make sure you are writing what you love, and only what you love, because if you develop a fan base, they are going to want more of that and only that. Also, I’d like to say, there seems to be so many stories of self-pubbed insta-success floating around out there, but those stories do not represent a guarantee. It’s difficult not to be swayed by the push and pull of what’s trending, and of a lure of a viable income from something you love, but in reality the writing is the only thing that you have control over—the quality of it, the depth of it, the creation of compelling story, memorable characters. That’s it. The rest is really up to algorithms and fate.  So, don’t waste mind power on the financial dream—just do what you love—just write.
What is your favorite book? favorite author? Do you have an author that inspired/inspires you to write? 
This is going to sound crazy but I grew up on Little House on the Prairie books. I loved those adventures, being transported back in time, to a place in history. I’ve been a history nut all my life over it. Because of those books and ones like Black Beauty, I decided at a very young age I wanted to be an author, though it seemed very unattainable from my small town of Chatham, Ontario. Then I grew up and I walked into a bookstore one day and saw this book, Rush Home Road by Lori Lansens on the shelf. Lori was high school friend of mine. Suddenly, the dream was possible. I bought the book and read it, and it remains for me, one of my most treasured reads. The book is a masterpiece. Truly, it is, on so many levels. (If you haven’t read it…you should.) I also, have another book that has never left me, and that was CHIME, by Franny Billingsley…okay…LOVE! And Laini Taylor’s Daughter of Smoke and Bone…yum!!!
Do you have any go to people when writing a book that help you with your story lines as well as editing, beta reading and such? 
Yes, I have a few. Good friend and writer, Rosemary Danielis is always there for me, to beta read and proof read and pretty much keep me on course. Veronica Rossi, of the Under the Never Sky Trilogy, is also a great friend and critique partner. We’ve known each other for years, and I trust her to tell me when my characters need puffing or my plot needs whittling. She’s truly a master, as you all know. I also brainstorm and get guidance from Story Developer Extraordinaire, Lorin Oberweger, who is also a great friend.
Are you working on anything now? 
Several things, actually. I am finishing up the second book NOIR, of my beloved Illumination Paradox Series, (hoping to have it out just prior to Christmas, January at the latest.)
I’m also working on a secret new New Adult Romance, entitled The HeartMender’s Society, about a romance writer wannabe, who can’t seem to get her life in order, and suddenly finds herself in charge of repairing the lives of six other young men, when she takes a part time job (out of necessity) as a the group leader of the Widower’s Club at the HeartMender’s Society, a self help group for young men who’ve tragically lost their wives. Mayhem ensues, when one of the men’s dead wives leaves her a package with specific instructions to find her replacement.
I am also hard at work on part three of my IF ONLY serial, which I’m really enjoying, (and I hope readers are, too!) AND, of course, because I’m not busy enough, I’ve started a new project, something that’s near and dear to my heart. A love story entitled: SCARLET’S LETTERS loosely based on my mother’s true life experiences, inspired by the discovery of my father’s love letters sent home to my mom, during WWII.
Thanks so much for stopping by today, Jacqueline. It's been great having you here.
Jacqueline Garlick photo jacquelinegarlick_zpse5f40429.pngJacqueline’s edgy, rule-breaking, Tim Burton-esque style of writing has seen her dubbed—the Quentin Tarantino of YA.

Known for telling stories that are gritty and visceral and rather in your face, Jacqueline’s work is, at the same time deeply emotional, featuring realistic, loveable characters that her readers really connect with.
  
Jacqueline loves strong heroines, she despises whiny sidekicks and adores a good tale about a triumphant underdog. Don’t you?

Once a teacher, she was placed in a portable teaching building filled with black toxic mould in 2005, which sparked a three year long battle with her negligent school board, resulting in her forced dismissal from that career. But as they say, when one door closes another one opens. (That is the saying, isn’t it?) Always a risk taker, Jacqueline jumped ship and began writing novels, something she’d been itching to do since she was born.

Blog Tour: The Book of Kindly Deaths by Eldritch Black @EldritchBlack @SpencerHillP




WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF THE MONSTERS IN A BOOK BECAME REAL?

When twelve-year old Eliza Winter finds a secret room in her missing grandfather’s sprawling, Gothic house, her safe, sheltered life is blown apart. Inside, below a stained glass window where moonlight shines no matter the time of day, sits The Book of Kindly Deaths.

In defiance of her controlling mother, who has always forbidden her to read anything strange or imaginary, Eliza takes the book. As night sets in, Eliza reads one haunting story after another. And the further she journeys inside the book, the more the boundaries between our world and a shadowy land of monsters and forbidden places begin to blur.

When the strange, crooked man from the book arrives on the doorstep claiming to be a rare book collector and demanding entry into the house, Eliza’s world is turned upside down. To escape him she must dive all the way into the spine-tingling world of The Book of Kindly Deaths to save her grandfather-and write an end to the nightmare she’s caught inside.

Tell us 5 eerie places around the world that helped inspire TBOKD.

All of my eerie placed are in England, which heavily inspired The Book of Kindly Deaths.

The Witch’s House
There were two places in particular that terrified me as a child. Both were on the way to the local park. One was a small bridge over a stream. My mother told me a troll lived under it, and I had no reason not to believe her. I can still remember trying to tread lightly as I could when we passed over the bridge. The other place near the park was a much larger bridge that crossed the river Thames. On one side, under the bridge, was a bottle-green door, which my mother told me led to a witch’s house. I remember being incredibly nervous as we walked by. It’s fair to say my mother instilled a healthy sense of horror in me from an early age, but to be fair I probably deserved it.
There’s a hideous creature in The Book of Kindly Deaths called The Malefactrix. I’m pretty sure she was inspired by the old door beneath the bridge.

The Basement, a Victorian House in London
I grew up in a flat in a Victorian house in Teddington, South West London. It was a really eerie house and several people that lived there had ghostly encounters, including me. But that’s a different story. 
Below our flat was a coal hole that led to a deserted basement. A friend and I used to slide down the hole and explore the basement. It was absolutely terrifying down there. It was an empty place, but for a few children’s toy cars and drawings left on old peeling wallpaper. It was always freezing cold in there, no matter the season. Not that we went in there often. I used to try not to think about the basement being directly below our flat. Thinking about it even now gives me goosebumps. It’s fair to say the basement was a strong influence in the story “The Wrong People” — a part of The Book of Kindly Deaths.

My Bedroom (at various locations)
Like a lot of kids, I loved dark and scary books. There was one in particular that was a favorite. It was Grimm’s Fairy tales illustrated by the artist David Hockney. I used to read it in bed and be terrified. Which was part of the fun, naturally. But once the lights went out, a lot of the fun vanished. Then I was just scared. I’d like to say I outgrew this, but I still read such scary books. I particularly enjoy ghost stories in Winter. And once the lights go out, I’m occasionally sent back to those childhood terrors. I’m sure this must have inspired the scene in The Book of Kindly Deaths, where Eliza’s reading the book in bed, and strange things are stirring around her.

The Dolls
Eel Pie Island is a place in Twickenham, South West London. It’s famous for its music venue, where bands including The Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd and David Bowie once played. Strangely, I’m not sure I ever visited the island as a child, but a few years ago a friend and I wandered over and found a garden full of dolls, some headless, some hanging from trees, some planted in the ground. It was really weird and quite unnerving, and we didn’t hang around for long. There are no creepy dolls in The Book of Kindly Deaths, but it might well have inspired the Hoardspike’s lair.

The Tunnel

There was a nature reserve that we visited with the school as children called forty acres. I hated the place. It was wild and overgrown and there was a ruined old clock tower which was apparently haunted. It was a strangely desolate place, at least to my eyes. Beyond the clock tower was a tunnel. I remember standing before it and just being hypnotized by the sheer darkness beyond. Kids dared each other to go in when the teacher was distracted, but there was no way I was going in there. I remember hearing a sound inside. Probably a stone tossed by another kid to freak us out. At least that’s what I like to believe. Again, I think this tunnel was a big inspiration for “The Wrong People”.
