Reading Update
Art for Kids: Drawing: The Only Drawing Book You’ll Ever Need to Be the Artist You’ve Always Wanted to Be by Kathryn Temple. Good basic overview of a wide variety of drawing concepts. I’ve tried a few of the exercises in my sketchbook and plan to try a few more before returning this book to the library.
The Gluten-Free Revolution: Absolutely Everything You Need to Know about Losing the Wheat, Reclaiming Your Health, and Eating Happily Ever After by Jax Peters Lowell. DNF. Not going to rate this. I didn’t realize it was the third edition of Lowell’s Against the Grain: The Slightly Eccentric Guide to Living Well Without Gluten or Wheat, which was a really important read for me after I was diagnosed with celiac disease in 1997. Lowell’s no-nonsense, seize-the-day attitude was so completely different from every other book about celiac and the gluten-free diet – it was refreshing and freeing. But I’m in a very different place now with the gluten-free diet and this time Lowell’s style was just rubbing me the wrong way.

Ebook giveaway: Jack in the Green (2nd ed) by JL Merrow

Many thanks to JL Merrow for donating an ebook copy of her forthcoming paranormal historical m/m romance, Jack in the Green (2nd ed), for a lucky commenter to win! Jack in the Green will be released by JMS Books on May 3.

Stranded in a remote country village in 1920s England by his car breaking down, shy young Arthur finds himself drawn to the rough mechanic who comes to his aid, Bob Goodman. Forced to stay until the May Day holiday is over, Arthur makes the best of it, enjoying the village procession and fete.

But the villagers seem to know more about him than they should, and there’s a second, darker, May celebration that starts when the sun’s gone down. In the drunken revelry that follows, Arthur is whisked off in a wild dance by Goodman, who plays the part of Jack in the Green, the spirit of the greenwood.

Dancing turns to loving, but is everything what it seems? And is one night all Arthur can have?

Note: This short story (approx. 7,500 words) was previously published as The Green Man. It has been fully revised and re-edited, but is substantially the same story as that previously available.

About JL

JL Merrow is that rare beast: an English person who refuses to drink tea.  Having grown up by the seaside, she also loathes fish and chips.  She read Natural Sciences at Cambridge, where she learned many things, chief amongst which was that she never wanted to see the inside of a lab ever again.  Her one regret is that she never mastered the ability of punting one-handed whilst holding a glass of champagne. She writes across genres, with a preference for contemporaries and the paranormal, and is frequently accused of humour. You can find out more about JL at her website, blog, Facebook, Goodreads, and Amazon.
