LAUNCH DAY of THE LOVE SHACK - a great new release from Tina K Burton

Today, MBB welcomes Tina K Burton back, with her brand new release, The Love Shack, a piece of contemporary women's fiction which is a really good read. She writes short stories, articles, novels, and even the occasional haiku. Both her novels, Chapters of Life, and, The Love Shack, are published by Crooked Cat Publishing, and she's working on her third, a story about a girl who dies suddenly, and finds herself back in the thirties.When she's not writing, Tina spends her time crafting, relaxing with friends, and taking her rescued greyhound for walks across the beautiful moorland in Devon, where she lives with her family.

Tina, what inspires your writing?
All sorts of things. Nature and the countryside around me, people - I love watching people and eavesdropping on conversations - snippets of things I see on the TV, anything and everything really.

How did you get the idea for this novel?
My daughter mentioned something about dating agencies, and I don't know where it came from, but the main character's name came to me - Daisy Dorson - and this whole scenario set around a dating agency then evolved from that. 

Did you face any obstacles in the creation of the novel?
If so, it would be great if you could share how you managed to overcome those obstacles!!! 
No, this one was easy and a real joy to write. The only problem I have is lack of discipline. I wish I could keep proper office hours when I write, but I don't work like that. I can sit down to write at 8am and still be there at 7pm, having not even stopped to eat. I'll do that for two weeks solid, but then go for a month without writing a thing. It's not a good way to work, but I can only write when I'm in the right frame of mind. So when I am, I make the most of it.

Please sum up the plot of THE LOVE SHACK in a Tweet-sized sentence (140 characters only!)
Daisy Dorson stomps into The Love Shack dating agency to complain about how useless they are, and ends up getting much more than she bargained for.

What's next on the agenda? Is there another novel in the foreseeable future?
Yes. I'm currently writing a novel set in the thirties. It's about a young girl who dies suddenly - she suffers with a phenomenon called Sudden Death Transition (it's not real, I made it up) - and she finds herself back in 1932. Her great aunt Clarissa looks after her. It's a fun story, but with an underlying sadness.


Welcome to The Love Shack! 

When Daisy Dorson stomps into The Love Shack dating agency to complain 
about how useless they are, she ends up getting much more than she bargained for. 

An unexpected offer, the people she meets along the way, and the course of events that follow, turn her life upside down. 

The Love Shack – a fun, feel-good read, with quirky characters, and plenty of romance...

Review - 1857 Dust of Ages - The Forgotten Tale by Vandana Shanker

This has to be the first review on MBB in a very long time and it was well worth the wait. Anyone who likes Indian historical fiction is going to adore this beautiful read.

Maria Perry Mohan's Review of 1857 Dust of AgesVolume I -  A Forgotten Tale by Vandana Shankar

As historical fiction goes, this is first class. We’re literally getting glimpses of a fascinating story as seen through the eyes of today. Can it really be that an Indian royal family gave their daughter in marriage to a British Army officer?  Some say it could be impossible, but has the truth been covered up? And why?
Those glances back in time show teasing glimpses of a royal family at a crossroads. The queen’s consternation when a male hair has not been born and her greedy sister-in-law, the one who has a son, eyes up the kingdom. Would such a queen mother be good for a kingdom? Probably not.

The princess’s character comes through as a girl who has been born to lead her kingdom. The 19th century produced one of the gr…
