  1. Hi Nutschell!
    Since you like sci-fi I would love for you to consider read/reviewing my YA sci-fi Fireseed One. It’s gotten a good response so far, and I would really love to keep spreading the word. I would also be open to an interview. Here is the link to it on Amazon. BTW, I am also a published illustrator and I did nine drawings for the novel. thanks, Catherine

    Dear Nutshell

    I would be pleased if you would consider reviewing my science fiction middle grade novel, “Escape From The Forbidden Planet” recently independently published on Amazon, approximately 171 pages. Suitable for ages 9-12.

    If you like the idea of telepathic elves who are obsessed with chocolate cake with caramel sauce, that swing through rainforests on vines, can train trees into the intricate dwellings in the canopy as well as do battle with evil clones that aim to take over the universe, then this book may interest you.

    There is no rush on my review request and I would be happy to provide the title as a paper back or e-book at any time that you express interest.

    Here is the book blurb and link to the e-book so you can check out the cover.

    Caramel Cinnamon thought the worst day of her life was the day her grandparents, the King and Queen of the Elves of Cardamom went missing. She was wrong! The day she spills sticky toffee syrup onto her father’s computer, that’s when her worst nightmare begins. She finds herself marooned on a forbidden planet, sent there by an evil clone with a very sticky secret. Caramel is desperate to escape. If she doesn’t she will lose her dreams of returning to Cardamom to become a healer like her Mum. Luckily, she has a secret of her own and the lives of her family and friends depend on it!

    Just a quick note, I am also an Australian, so you may notice some of the spellings are in British English, ie realize: realise, color: colour. I hope that won’t deter you.

    I look forward to your reply

    Do you take review requests? I am not sure, but if you do, I would love a review of my second novel, The Hidden Realms of Firestone (sci-fi/fantasy fiction) – details can be found here:
