MBB welcomes a very special guest author today – author Mandy Brittany, an old writing friend. We belong to the same short story writing group and have critiqued each other’s work many times. Not that her writing needs much criticism from me, I might add. I’ve always known her as an author with a soothing voice and more than a touch of humour. Her novels Photo Time and The Cold are both available to read online for free. Is there a catch? Sort of…..Mandy Brittany is trying to raise cash for cancer research and she’s requesting anyone who reads and enjoys her two books to donate a minimum of £2.00 to cancer research at the link provided. That’s €2.35 for those living in the Euro Zone, US$2.48 if you’re in the USA, AU$3.24 if you’re in Australia and ₹84 if you’re in India. This blog has quite an international reach, so if you are unable to access Mandy’s donation link, you could always donate to a local cancer charity instead. But you could let her know you’ve done it so she’ll have a fair idea how much she’s raised. We are doing this on an honour system, so no one is going to check up on you, but this is a cause close to many hearts, so please donate for this worthwhile cause. In her guest post (we decided to keep it short and mostly focus on the books), she shares why she’s taken up this particular cause. I lost my lovely parents to this dreaded disease, so I’m giving Mandy Brittany my full support on this.
Guest Post from Mandy Brittany, author of ‘Phototime’ and ‘The Cold’
Now, after being happy with Jack for three years, things have taken a turn. An odd university reunion arranged by her first boyfriend, sightings of someone dressed like Carl Jeffery and who is the mysterious Andy? Is Isla in danger, or is she losing her mind?
He meets Cillian, a man in his fifties, who is on a quest of his own to find his long lost brother.
Cillian teaches Isaac about Phototime – a way of visiting the five minutes after a photograph was taken – and the unlikely pair set out on a comical, magical adventure that takes Isaac on a journey into manhood.
