#CoverReveal: 'The Heart Of Escher' by Jonathan Dance

Born and raised in Hampshire, I spent most of my childhood dreaming up random adventures.   I left the sunny south coast to study Graphic Communication in Bath, where I fell in love with the rolling Somerset hills when I wasn’t walking up them.   Returning to Hampshire 6 years later, after meeting my now wife, Claire, I enjoy a quieter life, walking in the New Forest and relaxing with my wonderful wife and fluffy cat Molly.   I have always enjoyed telling stories, more often than not in visual form, either in films or animations. However, the idea of Escher was too big for me to do visually by myself so I picked up a pen and started writing.   Having written one novel, I am now keen to tell more stories of Escher, while at the same time expressing my imagination with my art.  Connect with the Author here:   ~  Facebook  ~  Instagram  ~  Twitter  ~  Tumblr  ~ James Fisher, a lonely, bullied schoolboy, finds himself in the dark and twisted land of Esc

Grandma's Wedding Quilts 12 Day Blitz - Day 12, Tad's Treasure by Shanna Hatfield

I've been fascinated with the Victorian and Edwardian eras, as well as the Old West as long as I can remember.     Growing up on a farm in Eastern Oregon where only the most determined and resolute individuals dare toil the soil that spent centuries covered in sagebrush, rock, and the random juniper tree, I never gave a thought to my great fortune in having a rural foundation on which to build my future.    All the crazy exploits I had as a girlie-girl being raised as a tomboy came in handy when I began writing western romances. You'd be surprised how many of the wild adventures in my stories are based on things I either experienced or witnessed during my formative years.    I joyfully bear the burden of being a hopeless romantic, with a bit of sarcasm thrown in for good measure. I've always been a sappy-hearted girl who loves a happy ending. I also love the western and rural way of life and that's why I began writing sweet and clean western romances.
