Smorgasbord Reblog – Review by Paul Andruss – What’s In a Name- Volume One Ebook – FREE 11th – 13th August

Thomas the Rhymer

You are all accustomed to Paul Andruss and his ability to take a tale, myth, legend and deconstruct it and put back together again so that we look at it with a new perspective.

Paul also does this with book reviews and I am honoured to have received three of them over recent months. Apart from my absolute gratitude to all who review my books, I also love seeing my writing through my the eyes of my readers.

Paul has just read my story collection What’s in a Name – Volume One and has posted a review on his blog.

I hope that you will head over and read all the review which is a story in itself… and then you will find a FREE offer for the book at the end of this post.

I always feel sad reaching the end of a Sally Cronin book.

It is not simply because I feel a chapter of my life has closed.

Nor because I will no longer be dragged along, a willing, nay eager, voyeur into the lives of people I have just met, but feel I have known for years. People who I am convinced will go on to live happy lives off the page, but who I will never see again; although I will think of them often.

Neither is it because I have not laughed hard enough or had my eyes mist over more than once and had to sternly tell myself: Get a grip you old fool. It’s only a story. A story it might be, but only a heart of stone could remain unmoved by Sally Cronin’s prose: even a heart of ice would melt.

It’s none of the above. Quite simply, when I finish a Sally Cronin book I really miss my mum who died some 20 odd years ago. Yes I know, even though they are gone they are with us. But truth be told, I no longer think of her enough.

If she were alive, knowing how much she would love What’s in a Name? I would jump in the car and take it down to her, like I used to. Although these days I would probably email it for her to download into her e-reader or tablet, or whatever it is the old folks do these days.

Read the rest of the review and if you like the look of it then please email for your free eBook:

Free Book Offer – From Friday August 11th until midnight UK time Sunday 13th August.

I am not part of the Kindle programmes so as an Indie I do not run free offers on Amazon. However, the files for the eBook version of What’s in a Name – Volume One is not very large and I can email you a copy.

Please email me on and request Mobi (Kindle) or Epub (Kobo etc)

If you do not have an eBook reader I can recommend Calibre which is a free multi-source reader that is free to dowload to your PC or other devices.

You can read other reviews for the collection on Amazon:

I have no expectation of a review but if you do enjoy the stories I would be grateful if you could share your thoughts on Amazon and Goodreads.

      • I sent my request immediately upon reading about your generous offer on Deb’s site – and thank you SO much. I’m eager to curl up on the couch with your book – (vs. sitting at my desk reading everything on my computer – lol) — all the more so after reading Paul’s beautiful review.

        I’m still learning how to navigate my Kindle, so who knows how easily I will be able to get a MOBI from my computer into the darned device – I only recently made it “work” through Amazon (duh!), but I’m sure I will figure it out . . . eventually.

        It may be a while before I will have read it TO leave a review anywhere, but I most certainly WILL . . . eventually – lol. 🙂
