What is the price paid for the creation of a perfect society?
In Whitopolis, a gleamingly white city of the future where illness has been eradicated, shock waves run through the populace when a bedraggled, dirt-stricken boy materialises in the main street. Led by government propaganda, most citizens shun him as a demon, except for Wellesbury Noon – a high school student the same age as the boy.
Upon befriending the boy, Wellesbury feels a connection that he can’t explain – as well as discovering that his new friend comes from a land that is stricken by disease and only has two weeks to live. Why do he and a girl named Ezmerelda Dontible appear to be the only ones who want to help?
As they dig deeper, everything they know is turned on its head – and a race to save one boy becomes a struggle to redeem humanity.

On this lovely day, I should like to share three reviews with you dear readers. As usual I got the ARC’s from http://www.netgalley.com; it’s a good place for amateur reviewers to get books early, but you don’t get to keep them; they expire 55 days after being downloaded, and sometimes I have to download them again.

You may be wondering why I’m writing reviews at one in the morning on 1st November when I clearly should be having an early night so that I can be up good and early to get the first couple of thousand words written on my NaNo novel in the morning. I have a legitimate excuse: I went to see a film and then a recording of a play at the cinema this afternoon/evening. It’s been an exhausting day but before I go to sleep I’m going to write my reviews.

I’ve got three book reviews to post, and they’re all too long to do on my phone.

I’ve finally got my twelve stories written for the collection I’m writing, the first drafts anyway. I need to type them up and do a first edit, give them to people to read through and then maybe edit a couple more times. After that I don’t know what to do with them.
Should I publish as an ebook?
Also, soon I will be being sent my first paper book to review by a publisher, The Devil’s Ribbon by DE Meredith. I’ve reviewed e-books for publishers recently so this is a new development for me.
And a free book is a free book after all.
Best be off, books to read, reviews to write, the usual, bye.
I found my way to a website called http://www.everythingbooksandauthors.com/ this morning, and on their ‘Special Offers & Freebies’ page there were a few books that I thought looked interesting. I’m going to read them all and review them.
I love having the Kindle for PC app. I have so many books on it, most of them free.
I got an email the other day. One of my book reviews has been used as a featured article on http://www.suite101.com. I’m very pleased about this.
There will be a new Tobold and Hibalt story soon. just as soon as I get my internet back up and running.
