An Inspirational Stocking Filler for Christmas

New Cover Reveal of ‘Search for the Pearl’

I digress from my series of posts to bring you the news that

SEARCH FOR THE PEARL INSIDE YOURSELF’

has this fantastic new cover:

An Inspirational and Motivational little book for young people who are struggling to find their way at the moment.

This version is only available:

at Waterstones

at the Great British Bookshop

I have heard so many people say that their grandson, grand daughter, nephew or niece find it hard to move on after Covid and Brexit. Opportunities open a few years ago have challenges, drawbacks and hidden pressures.

Their education has been disrupted.

Their university days which should have been uplifting and full of social events has been curtailed or irreparably damaged.

Opportunities to travel or work abroad have narrowed.

A gap year of travels is weighed down with concern for the environment.

A 20 year old waiter in Greece remarked back in May just as restrictions were being lifted, ‘I’ve always wanted to see a bit of the world and maybe work in the UK for a while but I’m not sure it will ever be the same again.’

This is a theme close to my heart having taught struggling 16 to 19 year olds for over a decade in Luton Bedfordshire before moving to Fife.

There are still a few copies of the first edition which I am prepared to GIVEAWAY FREE in the UK, for just the cost of postage, if you get in touch with me before Christmas and outline briefly why you think it might help. Please don’t name the young person though.

Diana’s March Book Review ~ Ticket to Eden by Ian K Pulham

Jack Lee is a likeable character, with secret horrific memories which never quite leave his consciousness. This affects his relationships and all of his life, until years later the possible nightmare scenario for our planet returns, but no-one takes him seriously.

A love triangle runs along this thread when the two people whom he holds most dear in his life become a couple.

We have messed up the earth, haven’t we, us humans. If a quick fix solution came along would we take it, regardless of the warnings? Regardless of the consequences.

Not a genre I’m usually drawn to, but I was gripped by this novel, the unexpected twists, the drama and love element. It was a compelling read.

This is Ian K Pulham’s debut novel and a touching tribute to his mum and dad, who would have been so proud …

…. ‘See you in the Next Life…’ Ian says.

About the story 

So, how do you deal with a violent and aggressive cult of over a thousand troubled souls, camped-out in a politically sensitive neighbourhood in the Middle East? Oh yes, and whose membership appears to be multi-national and led by a native of the USA?

How indeed?

My comments

I found the story gripping and quite unnerving, in this climate of uncertainty, climate change and sea pollution; a disaster waiting to happen. His novel which follows, however, although traumatic to the earth as we know it, gives a tiny glimmer of hope. Only just!

Well worth reading!
