Are You A Reader?

Brain to Books Cyber Convention



Known as the B2BCybercon for short and it is for you, as a reader. This is happening on Goodreads, which means it’s from the comfort of your own chair.

We are talking cyberspace here, so imagine that you have checked into the B2B Goodreads Hotel and you make your way to the virtual conference rooms.

Now think the biggest library with a wonderful choice of books in every genre you can imagine. Wouldn’t that be magic?

Well, magic is happening on 7th, 8th, and 9th April. Not only will you be able to visit each genre room, you can browse the books on offer without a shop assistant jumping out at you. Because don’t forget in cyberspace, no one knows you are there, so you can stay and look around without any pressure.

Not only that, but should you wish to, you can ‘meet’ the author. They will be quietly sitting beside their booth waiting for someone to pop in, but of course, they won’t know you are there either. So you can speak to them if you wish, or in this case, post in the comments box. You can actually talk to the authors about their books, how cool is that?

During the three days, stroll around the booths and buy as many books as you want, or at add them to your ‘To Be Read’ list, the choice is yours.

There may even be some special offers and you could probably get hold of a signed paperback as well.

So when is this happening again? It’s easy to forget the date, isn’t it? Well, that’s taken care of too. Just follow this link for a save the date notification.

 Save the Date

And one last thing, when you register, you’ll be entered into a draw for a $100 Amazon gift card. If you win, you won’t need to worry about the amount of books you buy!

I shall have two booths, one in Romance the other in Thriller, I hope you’ll come and say hello because it would be great to see you.

Raising Awareness

The Magic of Stories is pleased to tell you about a story that will touch your heart and one man’s struggle to help himself and others.

On 1st of February 2016, Wayne Dixon and his dog Koda set off from the Lancashire coast to walk the whole coast of Britain. That’s some feat as he intends to walk constantly over the next couple years.

This has always been an ambition, and after losing his father in 2012 Wayne found himself able to get on the road and raise money. 

These walks are also a healing process as Wayne’s dad suffered from bipolar, it is also an opportunity to raise money to improve services and attitudes to those who fall vulnerable.

I live on the beautiful island of Anglesey and Wayne is approaching my area. and there are many great places to walk and see. Like other UK cities, we are occasionally blighted by litter. Wayne is picking up litter as he goes.



I love dogs and you may have seen posts or tweets about mine, so raising awareness for dog neglect can only be a good thing. The Northern Inuit Society will tell you everything you need to know about these beautiful husky dogs.

MIND is a mental health charity and mental health is such a big issue at the moment. There is little help out there due to funding and this charity goes a long way to support people.

Stop moaning & start doing – Wayne Dixon 2016 is his favourite quote and he is doing that just.

If you can help support Wayne by cheering him on when you see him on route or go over to his Facebook page.

Another way to help is to sponsor him either on his Just Giving page for MIND  or his Go Fund Me page for huskies.

I will also be following him on Twitter, so follow me for updates.
