Lazy Friday

This week has been a fun week for me, it's my town's carnival and air show so loads going on to see and do. I've been a little neglectful of my reading as a result! However this week I have reviewed :

Hired Guns by Mark Boss, an action novel
...and Night Falls by Tommie Lyn, a crime thriller and
Twists & Turns, A Red Adept Collection of short stories

I've just finished another anthology of short stories, review coming later, A Selection of Meats & Cheeses by Danny Gillan. I previously reviewed his novel Scratch and Danny is the focus of this week's special over at Webbiegrrls's Writings. Take a look to find out more on this Glaswegian author and his works.

And now onto Follow Friday. At parajunkee.com the question for today is:

If you could write yourself a part in a book, what book would it be and what role would you play in that book?

I don't have a particular book in mind, but I would love to be a kick-ass, adventurous, tough yet smart girl. I like to surprise people, hate the idea of being average, and I love new experiences so an outdoorsy type who turns their hand to all manner of extreme sports, acquitting herself well in hand to hand combat while would be kind of cool. I guess a Lara Croft kind of character would be great.

No Book Blogger Hop over at crazy-for-books.com so I'll try and come back to that later.

Last but by no means least I am excited about an upcoming promotion I'm taking part in. Author Scott Nicholson is running Be Nicholson's Agent, details are on his blog here. It should be fun and will give bloggers and readers the chance to win gift cards, freebies and prizes. Keep an eye out for more news on this soon.

Hope everyone has a lovely weekend, I'll be trying to relax and enjoy a break from running around like a maniac. TC x

I'm the same way - if I'm going to be in a book, I don't want a normal role. I want something powerful and/or supernatural. :)

Great blog! I'm following you now!
