One of the most brutally honest writers I’ve read. The story centres around a troubled teenage lad and the little girl he befriends—but this is no regular child. This book is a stunning portrayal of inner-city life in the ’70s. The author is a true Scot, but not the gentle highland kilted… Continue reading Review of Lily Poole by Jack O’Donnell
Everybody loves Jessica. And you will too. This book is so well blended that it’s difficult to decide if it’s character, plot or descriptive driven. As the teaser suggests, it should be character-driven because we fall in love with our heroine, Jess. It’s impossible not to. She’s down-to-earth, authentic and fallible—and that makes her very… Continue reading Review of Listless in Turkey by Onia Fox.
OMG! I think I’ve fallen in love with you and all your staff. Your family and your neighbours! I’ve only watched it about 15 times already. I love it so much. I’m crying happy tears. And I’ll probably sit here all day watching it until it’s seared into my eyeballs. I am so excited about… Continue reading Testimonial Amanda Sheridan 19th November 2021 for book trailer
Such a wonderful experience working with BBE. Communication was excellent, and the service was fantastic. I must admit I was nervous sharing my work with someone, but Katherine has been nothing but encouraging, helping me get rid of the bad habits I have when writing. I look forward to working with BBE… Continue reading Testimonial: Caroline Muriwani 16th November 2021 for second pass editing.
Katherine has been nothing short of amazing from start to finish. The communication from BBE has been quick and concise, and from quotation to returning my finished manuscript I have been kept in the loop. With regard to the quality of her work, I am so blown away with the fantastic changes she… Continue reading Testimonial: Caroline Muwaniri 11th November for Editing.
I know I’m biased (Sooz [“Katherine”] has been my editor for more years than I care to count) but can we get a round of applause for all the hard work she does for us? Her relentless pursuit of excellence (and the strength of her convictions) have given us all a leg up… Continue reading Testimonial: Peter J Merrigan for Editing 10th November 2021
Futuristic sci-fi at its best. Techie nerds, sci-fi nerds, and nerds in general will love this series of books. Let me just say there is nothing wrong with being a nerd—138,000 Magic the Gathering cards (including one worth $650); tell me, I’m not mistaken. Ken and Cass are excited—it’s their wedding day. However, they… Continue reading Review of The Artemis War Chronicles Box Set. (The Cassidy Chronicles) by Adam Gaffen
I rarely enjoy a book as much as this one. I binged it and completed it in one day. This story is addictively fascinating. We are taken to the East-End of London in 1974. We meet Joe, a lazy fourteen-year-old who really doesn’t like the idea of anything even scantily linked to working. His… Continue reading Review of East End Butcher Boy by Joe Lawrence
This book got off to a good start but floundered. I would have given it a 7 out of 10, but I’ve raised it to an 8 out of ten for the brilliant ending. I didn’t work it out and fell right into the trap that Logan set. The characters are good enough, but we… Continue reading Review of The Holiday by T.M. Logan
This was a great read. This Author is bandied about in the reading groups all the time, and I kept seeing her name mentioned. Most people like her, so I wanted to know if she lived up to the hype. She does. I powered through it and found the characterisation very strong. Her people are… Continue reading Review of The Family Upstairs by Lisa Jewell
