Appreciate this lovely review for Hope in Liverpool.
Today I’m on the book tour for Hope in Liverpool by T N Traynor, thank you to Kelly at Love Books Tours for organising it and inviting me to take part and thank you to the author and the publisher for my copy

Hope in Liverpool follows a dejected young woman who finds renewed hope in a handsome stranger that provides the prospect of a better life. What was the inspiration for the setup to your story?
My Women of Courage series is a set of standalone stories, all of which I try to find a courageous female as the lead. In all my books in this series I would like to inspire or encourage. Hope in Liverpool is about showing that although we can go through extremely sad things in life, if we look towards hope we can be pulled out of the mire.
Each book has a unique place and time in history. I decided on Liverpool in 1958 because my mum has told me of what life was like for her back then. This isn’t her story at all, but the things like the dance…

Thanks for a great review! 🙂
Hope in Liverpool is a stirring historical romance novel following a dejected young woman who finds renewed hope in a handsome stranger that provides the prospect of a better life. But that life has its own set of obstacles.
Hope Bennett is an intriguing character and could be described as a woman with a gentle soul and a heart of gold, but don’t let that fool you because once you hit a nerve she can be as feisty as ever. This dynamic character is really brought to life by T N Traynor’s sharp writing.
This emotionally charged love story showcases the hardships that women go through on a daily basis, yet somehow they are able to soldier on and continue being the anchors in their home while also being their own pillars of strengths. Traynor takes this novella beyond your typical romantic love story and makes it a book that…

Susan, thnk you so much for such a wondeful review you have made me happy and given me so much encouragement to continue writing, thank you.
Okay, for the first time, Tracy Traynor owes me a box of tissues! Wow, she just ripped out my heart, stomped all over it, and I didn’t even see it coming! Keep the tissues close by as you are reading FAITH IN ABERTILLERY . She will have your emotions all over the place. I have never read any other books by Tracy Traynor before but I know FAITH IN ABERTILLERY won’t be the last! Wow! What an awesome story. Once I started reading, it was very hard to stop! Tracy makes her readers feel every emotion her characters are feeling to the point where you feel as if you are right there, struggling along with them.
Faith needs to find a job and quickly. Her mother relies on her as well as Bertie. She begins working for Lord Geoffrey Driscoll as a maid. Before that, she was a…

IDI &The Oracle’s Quest (Born To Be-Book 1) by TN Traynor
IDI & The Oracle’s Quest is a magical story with many different and wonderful characters. This is the perfect book to read when you have a free day and a long evening. I felt that this book expresses that everyone is special through the character IDI an Orphan living a life where he doesn’t feel loved or understood and doesn’t feel special at all. But life and growth can make all the difference.
The story itself follows Marcus and the band of brothers as they prepare to meet the chosen one. However, Marcus is sent by a magic oracle to help IDI discover he is magical and special and hopes he will help him discover the chosen one. However, will Marcus convince IDI of his hidden powers? Will they go on a journey to find the…

AutoCrit When you're someone like me, who struggles so much with grammar and the rules of good writing, then this tool is a lifesaver! The above is my score for Faith in Abertillery before sending it to the professional editor. This is amazing for me.

Images shown under the Fair Use Act for Critiquing As a Christian, I love it when I find a book full of morals. One of my all-time favorites is the Narnia series by C S Lewis. Clive Staples Lewis (1898–1963) states that Lewis was one of the intellectual giants of the twentieth century and arguably one of… Continue reading The Innkeeper’s Son ~ K C Herbel

My experience with OnlineBookClub.org I decided to pay to advertise my book with Onlinebookclub.org. I paid $598.00 for their Book of the Day deal. In the days running up, I began watching the rankings of other books that were the ‘book of the day’. I was quite excited to see a few of them rise… Continue reading Are book promotions value for money?
We are sensitive people us indie-authors. I know I for one, practically fall apart when Amazon 'hit me' with another veto, whether removing reviews I received or those I have given. I do feel that Amazon has taken an underlying - almost sub-conscience, decision to get rid of us, well the ones not selling thousands… Continue reading AMAZON – INDIE-AUTHOR HATER?
This book appealed to me straight away, due to its aspirations to help people. Blacksheep, outcast, dunce, unwanted, loner and weirdo. Name tags that hurt and prevent us from growing into strong, beautiful people. I called myself dunce for a long time, nearly 40 years, actually. It is liberating to come out from underneath the… Continue reading Book Review: What does it mean to be a black sheep? by Kristina Gallo
