Today was a proud day for me - I finally got to see my book on a library shelf. My twelve year old self would not have thought it possible and, although I have been busy with life and other things, I have tried to keep that in mind and celebrate an achievement which might seem a small one. The book is available at the Rothwell branch in the suburb of Leeds where I live - left hand side middle row under novels (even though it is a collection of short stories) and filed under 'K' for Keeling. It's a slim little thing but it is there, I promise! It can be ordered from any Leeds branch in the usual way.
If you live nearby it would mean the world to me if you could take a look, maybe check it out and have a read - even if you don't get all the way through. Each story can be read in 10-20 minutes. It has taken years of work to get this far and it would be a shame if no-one ever borrowed it! It's unlikely to be plucked off the shelf at random (can you spot it in the picture above?!). If you do read it, reviews on Amazon are always appreciated. For those of you unfamiliar with the book, here is the blurb:
’In the darkness the harbinger sings, of death, destruction, the end of all things.’ An injured soldier crosses a moor in the midst of a storm, a man chases an elusive woman through the streets of York, four children play in an abandoned house on a crumbling cliff top... Containing eight chilling stories of love, despair, loneliness and redemption, Into Dust is a collection of supernatural tales which will have you lighting a fire, reaching for a drink and, of course, locking your door.

I love most types of fiction - crime, mystery, fantasy. Oh, and historical fiction of course and middle-grade books and, well, you get the picture.
