Peter Gribble’s book Quickening received a glowing five-star book review from Reader Views!

“Quickening” is a perfect conclusion to The City of the Magicians trilogy. Peter Gribble showcases his wonderful talent for writing epic fantasies in this amazing adventure. Fans will enjoy the complex plot, engaging characters, political machinations, and magical elements. This is a must-read for fans who enjoy sophisticated sagas.

It’s a 5-star review for A Day at the Waterhole by James Marck from Reader’s View!

The author has used a lot of words, and some of them are large, “magnifique,” for example. So, I would consider it best suited for kids aged seven and up (it’s labeled for ages 5 through 12). But overall, young readers who like highly engaging picture books with positive, meaningful lessons will likely find this jungle excursion interesting, enjoyable, and worth reading again and again.

April’s Literary Success Stories

Publicity

Tellwell author Hunter Snow was recently featured on Find Your Sounds and Tinnitist with her novel Rock Crush and Roll.

This book, at its core, is about navigating relationships. Friends, families, partners, colleagues, and what truly makes you happy at the end of the day.

A former North Vancouver RCMP officer, Tellwell author Russ Grabb, shares his story on Global News about his book Traces Of A Boy.

Traces of a Boy is creative nonfiction at its best. True and accurate down to the last detail, it pulsates like a stylized novel. Above all else, it’s the out-loud narration diary of an injured child in search of untroubled peace. As a story that exposes the barbarity of opposite-sex incest, bone-breaking violence, and the depraved indifference of mainstream society, it is by design a hair-raiser with an intensity reminiscent of A Clockwork Orange.

Events

Tellwell author Millian Lloyd Jones was in Florabel, Eden, New South Wales, to launch his book Milli and Max

A unique alphabet learning book and a treasury of fun facts about each sea creature that will delight children and their parents alike. Grab your copy of The Adventures of Milli and Max here.

Growing Pains author Sarah Taylor-Malo recently had her book signing at Indigo Kingston, Ontario.

It’s a story about the ups and downs of: life, love, anxiety, expectations, and self-acceptance. Grab your copy of Growing Pains here.

Author of the book The Heights, Shaelyn Gaskin, was in Mississauga, Ontario, for her book signing.

Delving into the complications of grief, this story examines the hardships of losing a loved one while showcasing the different ways grief presents itself. Ada’s journey, while difficult, seeks to provide the reader with a sense of hope that even the toughest obstacles in life can be overcome with the love and support of those around you. Grab your copy of The Heights here.

Reviews

Susanne Clark’s book Dishing Love Daily received a glowing five-star review from Reader Views!

I love how the author shares mindful words and concepts in the beginning of the book, how food played a role in pivotal moments in her life. She also describes the book’s origin story. You’ll find space to write down your ideas and inspiration, and extra tips for that special flourish. The tempting images will motivate you to try some of the recipes right away.

-Reader Views Book Review

It’s a five-star review from Literary Titan for Tellwell Author Joanne Kim, for her book The Enforcer’s Tale!

Joanne Kimm’s The Enforcer’s Tale stands out for its captivating plot, richly drawn characters, and thoughtful use of language. It is an excellent choice for those who appreciate novels that blend suspenseful narratives with complex characters and themes, offering a rewarding literary journey.
