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.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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. https://calibre-ebook.com/download
You can read other reviews for the collection on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Whats-Name-Sally-Cronin-ebook/dp/B01N6Y8BK1
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.
