Another Review, Yippee

A Baker's Dozen

Karry Vanherreweghe rated it 5 of 5 stars false
 
I won this as a Goodreads, First Read and I wasn't sure what to expect. I was blown away at how quickly I could picture the people in these short stories. I was surprised at how quickly I knew the background of the situation and what was happening without actually being told. The only bad thing about this book is that it ended.
 
Thank you Karry for this lovely review and for taking the time to post it.
Hugs galore,
Mary

Michelle Jackson, author

Michelle Jackson is a wonderful Irish author, published with Poolbeg, whose new book ‘5 Peppermint Grove’ is due out shortly. I had the pleasure of meeting Michelle at a literary festival in Doneraile this year.  She is a bubbly down to earth author who is willing to share her knowledge of writing with others.  Her tips were useful, she recommend that a writer consider putting the current mood in life into their writings. Also if your story or book has a theme running through it, maybe consider putting a quote in relation to the theme at the start of each chapter.  Just a couple of the many hints and tips she shared with the audience. At the festival she inspired us all with her happy nature and shared her email with us if we needed to contact her with any writing questions, how good is that? I have read Michelle’s books and in particular I enjoyed ‘One Kiss in Havana’ and ‘4am in Las Vegas’. She has also co written ‘What Women Know’ with Dr. Juliet Bressan, published by Hachette Books Ireland, a book inspired by women all over the world. So make sure you catch this author and sit back and enjoy a thrilling read.
Michelle Jackson happily signing her books for her many fans at Doneraile literary Festival 2012
