Little Secrets

Blurb

A town reeling in the wake of tragedy

An arsonist is on the loose in Colmstock, Australia, most recently burning down the town’s courthouse and killing a young boy who was trapped inside..

An aspiring journalist desperate for a story

The clock is ticking for Rose Blakey. With nothing but rejections from newspapers piling up, her job pulling beers for cops at the local tavern isn’t nearly enough to cover rent. Rose needs a story-a big one.

Little dolls full of secrets

In the weeks after the courthouse fire, precise porcelain replicas of Colmstock’s daughters begin turning up on doorsteps, terrifying parents and testing the limits of the town’s already fractured police force.

Rose may have finally found her story. But as her articles gain traction and the boundaries of her investigation blur, Colmstock is seized by a seething paranoia. Soon, no one is safe from suspicion. And when…

TaeVon‘s review

Jul 29, 2017
really liked it
Read from July 28 to 29, 2017 , read count: 1

I didn’t think a collection of short stories could flow so naturally between two authors, but Didi Oviatt and Kim Knight did just that.

I rated each short story on how much I would like for it to be written as a complete novel. Here’s my tally below that rounded to 4.25/5:

1. It Was The First Time I Killed A Man = 5 Stars (Think this may need more stars)
2. When He Ran His Hands Up My Thighs I… = 3.5…

Didi Oviatt

So this happened today! I’m split equally in three ways. Gratitude (thanks Kim!),  excitement, and obssession are all three pulling me in their direction!

I can’t believe I have my next cover!!!

I think this makes it all real (or sureal, take your pick!) Four novels in four years, I’m setting my goals and then killin’ them. You can probably just call me ‘the goal slayer’ from here on out.

Also, on a side note, completely off the subject — I’m about 92% sure that I’m going to get a tattoo on the back of my neck that says ‘Edit Me’… If anyone has any thoughts on that then please share, I’d really love some input, or encouragement. Lol really though, my husband thinks it’s silly so a few votes in my favor might shut him up a little because we all know that I’m going to do what I…

Featured Blog…Secret Diary of a Porter Girl!

Secret Diary Of PorterGirl

I was very honoured to be the first guest on my chum Dan Alatorre‘s new show, Writer Rants, to talk about PorterGirl books First Lady Of The Keys and The Vanishing Lord. Here are some edited highlights; whilst almost two hours of Daniel talking about how great I am might be good for my ego, no one really wants to listen to that. But what you might want to listen to, however, are insights into how I built up the Old College world and developed the characters, the truth about what really happened at Cambridge University and how I fell in love at first sight at the Royal Opera House…

Book Review – “The Memory Of Health”

Being Lydia!

MemoryOfHealth2

“I have been given this product as part of a product review through the Chronic Illness Bloggers network. Although the product was a gift, all opinions in this review remain my own and I was in no way influenced by the company. “

“The Memory of Health” by Edie Summers is a very interesting book. I think she had me from the start of the forward with “Dear Friend”. Why? Because I instantly felt this person wants to meet me where I am.

The 470-page book takes on many forms:

  • It contains excerpts from the author’s journal citing how her health is from day to day, etc.
  • The author has included some of her own poetry which gives a glimpse into how her illness comes out in her creativity.
  • There is some medical terminology to give substance and credibility.
  • And there is “the story”. All through the book, Edie talks about…

4.5 stars rounded up. it took me three restarts to get into this book, but I finally got it on that third time and it was completely worth coming back to and reading cover to cover. The timing was a perfect fit, I started it July 5th, sixth months into the Tr*mp administration, and barely put it down until completed July 7th. The essays are intelligent and her breadth of knowledge is impressive – though she acknowledged the advent of Google and internet searches, the way she weaves the information together is all her. I love the stream of consciousness, I write in a similar manner, just without all the travel, facts, or famous connections. Given the current political situation in the United States, I find this book very current and almost mandatory reading. The chapters that relate to the Bush Jr./Gore election and aftermath are a striking parallel to…
