There’s so many books to choose from these days. How do you decide which one you want to read next? I’m always drawn to attractive book covers and intriguing back cover write-ups. But, since we often spend more time online searching for books rather than in a bookstore now, the right book can be more elusive. So we often rely on recommendations by our friends.
Another way to discover intriguing books is to read reviews left by readers on Goodreads or Amazon. You always leave a review after you’ve read a book you enjoyed, don’t you? I know, it’s easy to get sidetracked and never get around to posting a review, even when you loved a book. But, if you can do so, other readers and the author will really appreciate it.
From 1st to 5th June I’m offering 20 free Kindle and pdf versions of my short story collection, Dancing Shadows, Tramping Hooves to readers in exchange for a review of it on Goodreads and Amazon after you read it.
Here’s a short description of the book so you can see if it’s your cup of tea:
“Dancing Shadows, Tramping Hooves is a collection of half a dozen short stories. Tales of outsiders who discover they belong, a humorous slice of life yarn, heartwarming love stories and a tale of taming fear. The shadows are on the wall, in the heart and clouding a woman’s memories while tangible foes tramp through the physical landscape.”
If you would like one of the free copies available, leave a comment on this post with your contact details or email me at dianne_ascroftATyahoo.co.uk (with Read4Review in the subject line). I will be pleased to send copies to the first 20 people who respond and I look forward to hearing your comments about Dancing Shadows, Tramping Hooves.
I read an excerpt from Hitler and Mars Bar and thought it was engaging. If you want I can review or give comments about Dancing Shadows and Tramping Hooves. I am sure it will be an interesting read.

Lovely cover, Dianne. I bought a copy when it came out and I think I reviewed it at the time. Hope you get lots more.
Always happy to read/always happy to help! Just not sure how can get a free copy actually onto my kindle…. Had difficulty before, and don’t like reading on pc! Might just buy it…
I think I left a comment on your blog. But it suddenly shut down so not sure. Happy to help!
Thanks Madeline. I’ll send you a copy of the book tomorrow.
