Hooray! The Healing Paths of Fife paperbacks have arrived ~ Queensferry Competition

Hi all

DSCN4172[1]There have been a few glitches getting the paperback version of  ‘The Healing Paths of Fife’ because Eventispress are trying out a new method of distribution. More about that in another post.

Anyway, a box of ‘The Healing Paths of Fife’ has finally arrived. Patience is a virtue they say.

I am giving away two copies of the paperback version to readers in the UK for the best responses in completing the sentence:

I’d like to travel over the new Queensferry Crossing because …..

Responses can be made as comments on this blog, on my facebook page or by email to dianariduna@yahoo.com

If you don’t live in the UK and your response is really good then I can send you an Amazon gift voucher for a kindle version of The Healing Paths of Fife instead.

Even better, if you’d like to donate to our new community library in Kinghorn, Fife as well, then I’m only a quarter way to my target fundraising for our walk over the Queensferry Crossing this Sunday.

Offer of 12 Book Reviews on Diana’s Book Review Spot

Would you like me to review your book on my blog and on Goodreads in the next twelve months?

Are you a Scottish author in particular?

I would like to focus my book reviews in the next year on good Scottish literature. Now, I am happy to choose famous, less well known or debut authors. These would be honest reviews, but I would only post my review with your permission. I read historical fiction, fantasy, mystery, crime, saga and women’s lighter fiction. I’m not too enthusiastic about passionate and explicit romance.

If you would like me to consider your book, then all I ask is a small donation of £3 or more for Kinghorn Community Library, which is only just opening this month due to hard work from many enthusiastic volunteers.. I don’t consider this as payment for a review just a donation to a worthy and needy cause.

Here’s our Just Giving Page

Firstly get in touch by email diana@dianamaryjackson.co.uk and request a review.

Then we’ll agree a month and you can make your donation.

I’m looking forward to hearing from you. Please RT and share if you can. I will consider any books outside of Scotland too, especially if I’ve already reviewed one of your books favourably.

Walking over The Queensferry Crossing in aid of our new Kinghorn Community Library

In two weeks’ time, on Sunday 3rd September, we are lucky to have been allocated tickets to walk over the new bridge over the Forth, The Queensferry Crossing near Edinburgh, Scotland. It will be a motorway linking Edinburgh with Fife and the north, leaving the old road bridge initially to be repaired and then to be used for buses and taxis I believe.

The Queensferry Crossing Scotland

I would like to make this a more meaningful experience for my community by raising much needed funds for our new library which will open officially on the same day, Sunday 3rd September.

I realise than many of you will not visit or benefit from our library, (although you would be more than welcome to pop by and say hello) but if you believe that reading should be encouraged from a very early age and that libraries are precious for our leisure, for education and as a focal point for community life then we’d really appreciate a donation of as little as £3 or $3 or much more if you are feeling generous. I am aiming for £200 and have a long way to go.

Follow this link to our Just Giving Page and the contribution will go directly into our Kinghorn Library bank account.

On Saturday I took these pictures at the Queensferry Regatta when some very brave men and women competed in their skiffs. It is an excellent spot to view all of the bridges in their glory.
