PorterGirl – Sinister Dexter Live Launch & FREE STUFF

Wishing every success to Lucy – I’ll let her tell you what’s she’s up to in her own words!

And if you haven’t got into the PorterGirl Novels yet these two brief reviews may help you:

Secret Diary Of PorterGirl

The day is almost upon us, my friends! The third PorterGirl novel, Sinister Dexter, will land on Kindles all over the place at the stroke of midnight and I am rather looking forward to it. To welcome my new book into the literary world, I will be doing a series of live broadcasts on Facebook and Twitter between 7pm and 8pm (UK time) tomorrow (Friday 27th April) evening. I will talk about the books, the characters and my time at the real Old College. If there any aspects of Old College (or even my good self) you would like to know more about, or have any questions about anything at all (no maths ones – I can’t do maths) then please do drop me a line via Facebook, Twitter, the comments section here or email lucy@verticalrecordings.com.

By way of celebration, the first book in the series, First Lady Of The…

Thank You, Mister Putin

My pre-order now made for the 3rd PorterGirl novel ‘Sinister Dexter’ written by Lucy Brazier- can’t wait for its release on April 27th. If you are not yet into these novels you’ll get a little taste of my take on ‘First Lady of the Keys’ and ‘The Vanishing Lord’ from my Amazon and Goodreads reviews- both of which I’ll post here tomorrow.

Secret Diary Of PorterGirl

Well, this is a bit of a surprise, to find me here on a Saturday. And no one was more surprised than me when my dear publisher informed me that the general release date of my new novel, PorterGirl – Sinister Dexter, was being brought forward to 27th April. This is largely due to the main bad chap in the book – new Bursar Professor Dexter Sinistrov – being a suspected Russian spy with a penchant for poisoning people.

Which is rather topical, I must admit. Although somewhat unnerving in its timeliness.

One can only assume that the remarkable Mister Putin is such a big fan of PorterGirl that he couldn’t help but stage an elaborate promotional stunt to get things moving.

A huge thank you to those who have offered me guest spots to discuss and promote the book, articles will be winging their way to you very soon…

Go Dog Go Café

She didn’t like

The tone

Of his silence

A day

She’d prefer

He didn’t breathe

He’ll not try

That hard

To please her

Takes another glass

Of her

Iced tears

I’m Jealous- Eric (EDC Writing), Guest Barista

… lines inspired a while ago by ‘Jealous’ a song by Labrinth.

Go Dog Go Café

I’m jealous of the light that sees you every day

I’m jealous of the night which holds you to daybreak

I’m jealous of the world you live in without me

I’m jealous of the wind that blows a kiss upon your face

I’m jealous of your clothes that touch and hug your curves

I’m jealous of the men you lead on and give your smile to

I’m jealous of your youth the mistakes you’ve yet to make

I’m jealous of the time you have for anyone but me

I’m jealous no fault of yours I a man you’ve never seen

Winner of Flash Fiction Contest #4

… to my surprise I find myself within this post, in such good company.

Carrot Ranch Literary Community


By Irene Waters

During October, the Rodeo, which was the brain child of Charli Mills from Carrot Ranch, gave us a wonderful opportunity to put ourselves outside our comfort zones by writing different forms and genres. Personally, I found it difficult, challenging but always fun and judging by the number of repeat entries, so did many others.

It was a pleasure to lead the fourth contest and come up with a topic and judging criteria. The topic – Scars – was inspired by a quote by Stephen King – whose book on writing should be read, I believe, by all aspiring writers. He wrote “Writers remember everything … especially the hurts. Strip a writer to the buff, point to the scars, and he’ll tell you the story of each small one. From the big ones you get novels. A little talent is a nice thing to have if you…

When Did You Decide- Eric (EDC Writing), Guest Barista

Sometimes you read yourself and wonder ‘Did I write that?’ Then remember … why.

Go Dog Go Café

When did you decide

No one on one with him

The day before or after

You said you couldn’t wait

When did you decide

To mess up bad his mind

The day before or after

You said you never would

When did you decide

You’d made a big mistake

The day before or after

He said he understood

When did you decide

You didn’t need to cry

The day before or after

He wiped away your tears

When did you decide

You’d always love him

The day before or after

He said ‘I love you’

Not A Day- Eric (EDC Writing), Guest Barista

Guesting at the Go Dog Go Cafe … thanks to Christine/Brave and Restless

Go Dog Go Café

You may not want to read this

You may feel I don’t deserve you

You may wish you didn’t know me

Maybe you’ve given up on me

I may have got it wrong

In so many ways that’s me

 I may have got you wrong

 In what you need of me

 There’s not a day you’re not with me

There’s not a day I’ll not smile

There will never be a day

I’ll not wonder how you are
