I’m going to miss these ladies!!

I’ve been with Steph, Tawny, Grace and Elaina from the start in Ohio at a jewelry shop where they all met. They were there to sell their wedding rings as two were getting divorces and one almost got married and one who lost her husband. They were all fed up with men, except one who was hurting. They all connected in the shop over Grace crying and went for drinks. From their first drink of wine together they formed a friendship that none of them knew they needed. As this is the final book in this series I’m reading it with a heavy heart knowing this is it for me and the four sassy chicks. They all moved in to Elaina’s big house together as they find they need each other. As they get to know each other sometimes things got messy. Tawny brought her dog to live with them, his name is stony. He becomes a blessing to all of them. At first he was a pain as he learned new rules, but they all loved him and he became a important part of their lives They form a club (wine and sweatpants) they get together for wine once a week. Elaina says ( not my circus not my monkeys). Well will see about that!
They are all different personalities that clash at times, laugh at times and cry at times. Their pasts in Ohio need to be left behind, Steph follows a guy to Maine only to call up crying to the girls that he’s a jerk. His family owned a bed a breakfast that’s up for sale. Elaina gets the bright idea to buy the place and have all four a part of it. It was a hard decision but they left there problems behind for a set of new ones in Maine.
Can their friendship survive the crazy move, new guys in their lives and all the craziness of owning a bed and breakfast. Read as they put their hearts out there again.
Every woman needs a friendship like these ladies have, you’d be lucky to form even one like this one between these beautiful women. They’re sassy, strong, creative, pain in butts at times to each other, but they wouldn’t have it any other way.
Come get to know them by reading this awesome series, you’ll love them to.

New Release: “Tissue Of Truth” poetry and short stories by Clive Johnson


Here you’ll find twenty two of what I refer to as my “Proper poems”, those longer and classically structured works that evoke a time when the demands and rigours of poetry made it something special. Following on from these are a selection of my verse tweets from my social media presence: forty seven variously humorous, pointed, poignant, downright silly, but invariably multilayered and always thoughtful verses in less than a hundred and forty characters—a master class in concision.

This volume, Tissue of Truths, then concludes with three of my short stories, one a prelude to my Dica series of speculative fiction novels, one a reminiscence from my own childhood days, and one a ghostly tale set in the Yorkshire Dales.

A journey of the unknown: Beyond Ever Blue Skies by Clive Johnson


Mr.Johnson imagination never ceases to amaze me with the worlds he creates and writes about. This book has it all, dystopia, intrigue, romance, sci-fi and mystery. Mr.Johnson does all his own artwork for his books, one of many hats this author wears ( the cover is one of his pieces)You have to have strong protagonists, this author gets into your heart and mind, they’re creative characters with different outlooks on life. His worlds are very descriptive, easy to visualize. Get ready for a trip to ” The Promised Land”. Not your regular sci-fi story. Take the journey into ever blue skies. Morgan and Stephanie won’t disappoint!

HorrorStruck Novella One: The Conversationalist by Justin Bog #Review


I found this quote for this book: “Everything you can imagine is real”.

This new revamp of this book is very evident. The author totally rocked the cover, it says so much on its own. The stories I’ve read in the first edition were good, but you can tell the author revisited his story and tweaked them. The characters get inside your head because it’s not hard to imagine their story. My feelings were all over the place with Patrick’s story, so many people can relate with him on trust issues.
The last story is new to me, “The Night” The author scared the daylight out of me with this one! A child’s imagination makes for a great read, or is it Anna’s imagination? A big house with creaky floorboards, a child crying wolf all the time. Now Anna’s faced with a decision to run to her father and tell him of her suspicion or let her family be stabbed to death. It’s a very well written book that you’ll enjoy reading because everyone has something in common with the characters.

The Forebears’s Candle by Clive Johnson #NewRelease



It’s 1976, and hippie student Colin and his new girlfriend, Kate, begin their life together during that heatwave summer. But something—or someone—intrudes into Colin’s mind and won’t go away. It leads them to unwind an extraordinary tale, taking them back to events some 500 years ago, to Jusuf, Rodrigo and Gwenna.

Who are they, though, and what is their link with Colin and Kate? And what’s the sinister mystery at the heart of their story that threatens the very existence of Colin and Kate’s own world?

A fresh and original time-slip novel of romance, revenge, religion, and redemption, where twentieth-century England’s North West and fifteenth-century Cornwall are unforgettably evoked with colour, richness and wit. If you like beautifully engrossing tales of mystery and intrigue, you will love
The Forebear’s Candle.

Created by master storyteller Clive S. Johnson, author of Solem (Fantasy) and Beyond Ever Blue Skies (Science Fiction), and the six volumes of the Realm of Dica Series (Fantasy).
