💉In Their Shoes Book 5 The Nurse💉
(͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) By Andrew Mackay
RRP: $2.99
Or FREE with your Kindle Unlimited subscription

💉Praise for In Their Shoes - The Nurse💉

"The Nurse captures and intensifies the chaos and bureaucracy of working in the health service. It will reduce the reader to tears of outrage, shock and hilarity!" - Jo Taylor, Student Nurse, UK"

"F*cking BRUTAL, and piss-funny!" - Stephen Lockeridge (book critic)

It’ll take a bucket-load of guts, heart and patients to survive this one!

The inpatients are getting impatient.
The psychiatric ward is losing its mind.
The maternity ward is suffering a midwife crisis.

Welcome to the graveyard shift at Shotterlay General Hospital.
It’s chucking-out time at the bars on Valentine’s weekend, and chucking up time down at the hospital. The poor, sick and infirm in the waiting area are revolting… in more ways than one! Soon, Shotterlay’s Accident & Emergency department won’t be so much A-OK, as DOA.

None of this will stop Sangita Gallagher, though. She’s the hospital’s charge nurse and runs an incredibly tight ship; expediently plugging holes in the paperwork, shift patterns and her patients’ gory wounds.

Tonight’s medical mayhem will be journalist Joy Attwood’s toughest assignment yet. It’ll involve copious amounts of violence, blood, vomit, mucus, amniotic fluid, lacerations, fractures, amputations, heart attacks, fornication and pulling things out of unwashed bottoms.

It’s absolute chaos and should really come with a trigger warning!
If you love British humor, satire and gross-out farce (think John Cleese, Helen Fielding, Tom Sharpe, Kurt Vonnegut and Imogen Edwards-Jones) then you cannot afford to miss out on In Their Shoes - The Nurse!

Incarnation By Devin O'Branagan

incarnation by devin o'branaganIncarnation  by Devin O'Branagan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Maggie was the pilot of a ship on a mission to observe a cultural rebirth of a messiah on a neighboring planet. What she did not realize was that she and the other members of the expedition were part of a bigger story. This is a tale of faith that has been told and retold for generations and which will be told forever no matter how hard authority figures try to stop it.

This is a fantastic story about faith, forgiveness, and the power of God to always find a way to reach us no matter where we are in time or space. I would highly recommend this book to anyone seeking more from this life or wondering if God is truly out there. This book is masterfully written. It reminds us that God is a relationship and not a religion. Therefore, it does not matter if religion is banned because all you need is your personal faith in something bigger than any of us and its power to make everything all right despite the hardships involved in doing so.

Dominance: An Erotic RomanceDominance: An Erotic Romance by Devin O'Branagan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Conor Fitzgerald was a broken man, a fact hidden from the casual observer. Outwardly, he was a true Dominant. After his wife died, he made it his mission to heal sexually broken women in a desperate attempt to do for them what he couldn't do for his wife. What he didn't realize was that through the simple act of helping others he was also helping himself. Deep emotional feeling was unlocked after years of holding it inside. Read this journey of discovery as Conor finally closes one chapter of his life so he can start a new one free from the guilt that held him emotionally trapped for years.

This is a fantastic emotional journey filled with love, sacrifice, and mystery, which will leave you satisfied well after turning the last page. The journey of Conor is one that many emotionally broken people have traveled. This author has once again captured the essence of the human soul and laid it out in a masterfully told tale of love, loss, and most importantly, healing. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who likes hot and heavy romance filled with self-discovery and emotional response.

Review of Innocence Taken: A Billionaire BDSM Erotic Romance by Devin O'Branagan

Innocence Taken: A Billionaire BDSM Erotic RomanceInnocence Taken: A Billionaire BDSM Erotic Romance by Devin O'Branagan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Desperate to find her younger sister, Angeline hires Cody, a private investigator. He follows a trail to her last place of work, a local brothel shrouded in mystery and lace, where the leads seem to vanish. This club is definitely not a place for a respectable lady, but despite the many dangers she may face, Angeline decides the only way to save her sister is to work at the brothel herself. Haunted by the past and lost in the passion of the present, Angeline is forced to look deep inside to find what she is truly looking for. This is a hot and heavy thriller mystery with a deep message about the power of love. Love can bring you a better understanding of your past so you can become a better person in the future. This book has a lot of hot sensual scenes, but each one has an interesting underlying cause that will leave you nodding your head in agreement. If you like mysteries with a passionate naughty flair then this book is for you. I found it to be a well-rounded story with a quick pace and defined characters. I would recommend this book to anyone who is not offended by sex and likes a good quick read.

Michael Phillip Cash Reviews

The FlipThe Flip by Michael Phillip Cash
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

On the way home from a successful flip, Julie and Brad Evens come across an old Victorian home for sale. From the moment, she saw it Julie was in love, despite Brad's misgivings about the property they take a leap of faith and buy it. What they find inside is more than their relationship and nerves bargained for.
Once again, I am on the fence with another book from this author. I read this book quickly because it flowed well and the characters were unique and moved the story in the general direction it was supposed to go. That said there was a set of pivotal characters called the sentinels. They were the guardians everything and seemed to play a very important role, but they were only mentioned in passing and were not developed. Readers of this book are left hanging wondering who or what they are and why they are influencing the life or death direction of the main characters in the story. The beginning starts strong but seems to lose focus at the last few wrap-up chapters and floats to the finish line. Would I recommend this book? Yes, I found it very enjoyable but I do not find myself wanting to re-read it. If you like ghost stories, real estate flipping, or a fast read which is mildly intriguing then try this book because the underlining message is a good one; Love conquers all you just have to smart enough to recognize it.

Witches Protection ProgramWitches Protection Program by Michael Phillip Cash
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

After messing up on the job and losing a prisoner, Wes was given one last chance by the chief who was also his father. He was assigned to an obscure department who's sole purpose was to provide protection to witches. When he started it was all he could to finish the task then get out of there but what he found out surprised him so much he could not let go.
This is a must read for fans of witches, this author, or a good fast paced book with well-developed characters, and rounded plot line. It was funny, witty, and action-packed. I found myself wanting to read it again as soon as I was finished. Well, worth the read I highly recommend this book.

PokergeistPokergeist by Michael Phillip Cash
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

All Clutch ever wanted to do was win the International poker competition to once and for all prove to his grandfather he was the best. In the final round, It can me down to just him and the "Ant". He thought he was going to finally win the gold bracelet when tragedy struck. After that, his life was never the same, mainly because he was dead. He thought his dream had died with him until a young wannabe poker player crossed his path and made a wish that would bind them together. Along the way, they both learn a lot about themselves and what life truly means.
This is a wonderful book which lives up to its title it is fun, heartfelt and well-rounded the whole story flowed well. The characters were well balanced and believable. The ending was satisfying and there were no loose ends. I would highly recommend this to anyone who likes funny books, ghost stories or tales where the underling comes out on top.

Serpent Queen by J.A. Campbell

Serpent Queen (Sky Yarns, #1)Serpent Queen by J.A. Campbell
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

It is hard to balance being an airship captain with being a vampire, but Captain Adair pulls it off masterfully in this tale of sky pirates, abusive leadership, and deception. The characters jump off the page and into your imagination leaving you're breathless in anticipation. The vivid descriptions of the environments are so intense you almost believe you are a part of the book.
I would recommend this book to anyone who likes vampires, or action adventure books. It is well worth the read and a great book for your collection.

Teagan of Tomorrow (Legend of Rhyme, #3) by Jaime Lee Mann

Teagan of Tomorrow (Legend of Rhyme, #3)Teagan of Tomorrow by Jaime Lee Mann
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book starts where the previous story left off. The twins find themselves in what they thought was a different place but instead found out it was a different time. Now they must work together to find their way back. Meanwhile, one of the descendants of their younger sister travels back to their time. Where she learns some enchanting things about herself and despite being out of her element she temporarily saves the day. To truly banish the darkness forever she needs the help of the twins unfortunately while trying to return the pair are accidentally sent back to the wrong time. Are they stuck there forever, will their descendent become the mermaid's new apprentice? We will just have to wait for the next installment to find out.
I am not sure what power this series has over me, but I just can not stop reading them. They are not necessarily written well the descriptions are repetitive. The people are described repeatedly while emotions, conversations, and environments are left hanging. This said I will still continue to read further installments and would recommend this series to younger children who like fantasy, adventure and care little about the confusing elements of who is who.

Diary of an Ugly Sweater review and interview with author Cassi Eubank

Diary of an Ugly SweaterDiary of an Ugly Sweater by Cassi Eubank
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

One little Christmas sweater decided to write a diary about her journey from the factory to her forever home. Along the way she learns a lot about friends, family, and the power of positive thinking. Like the sweater, this book is more then it seems it is filled with great tips for motivation, positive, thinking, self-worth, love, forgiveness, dreams, and family. A big theme throughout this book is the importance of loving yourself for who you are no matter what others think of you. Some readers may be weirded out by the narrator being a talking sweater, but sometimes people do not listen to others when they try to teach them life lessons and this author found an ingenious way of making learning about yourself fun. I would highly recommend this book to everyone it is a wonderful heartfelt tale told in a very imaginative way.

Please introduce yourself, who are you and what do you do?
Hi, I’m Cassi Eubank. I am an author, speaker as well as creative consultant for entrepreneurs as well as international corporations.
1) What genre do you like to write?
I am currently enjoying the world of children’s books. Kids are so amazing and see things through such fresh eyes that I find it energizes me to return to that place of innocence to be able to connect with them through the words.

2) If you were to branch out from your current genre which one(s) would you like to explore?
I am a huge reader of suspense/thrillers and feel I will at some point move in that direction. It is a challenge of a different nature and it will provide great growth as a writer, which I constantly strive for.

3) How long have you been writing? What prompted you to start writing?
My first published article was at the age of 8. It was a short story/poem that appeared in the local paper, the Coral Springs Forum. Poems, odes and short stories poured out of me until I became a teenager. Then it was high school journalism, writing for the school paper and editing the yearbook. Even when I was in a band, I wrote the original songs.
I love to write because you are able to create a whole world in your story and bring it to life. And when there is a purpose to your story, whether it is to inspire or deliver a valuable lesson, you can make a positive difference in the lives of people you have never even met and that gets my mojo going.

4) What inspires you to write?
My desire is sparked by the desire to make a difference. I am inspired, however, by the universe. What I mean by that is I have been blessed to be able to retain that childlike ability to tap into the universe by getting into a meditative state and allowing the vision of the story to develop. It plays through my mind like a movie. Then, the hard work comes in to bring the mind movie I saw to the pages in a unique and profound way. At least that is the goal.
5) When a story idea pops into your head, how long does it typically take to write it (from start to finish)? 
It depends on the book. My next book is already written and I am in the process of getting it illustrated. The Angel Alliance is directed toward children ages 2 – 10 and is a picture book that will be about 30 pages. This took a week to write and two weeks to edit, making sure each word had the most impact. Diary of an Ugly Sweater, however, took about 2 and a half months to write and another month and a half to edit. Diary is almost 200 pages and character development is more important when reaching middle grade (MG) or young adults (YA).

6) What did you find to be the most difficult part of the writing process?  Easiest?  
I find that I stop myself often to find just the right way to convey the thought I want to get across. Sometimes that breaks my flow and I have to go back a little to get back into it.
The easiest part of writing is the writing.

7) Of all your characters whom do you most relate to?
Sophie. She gets picked on and has some insecurities to overcome. While I cannot ever remember being called ugly, I know I felt that way. My adolescent years were a little painful at times, as it is for all kids. Sophie discovers the things I wish I had known at that age. I know how important confidence is to creating an extraordinary life and I want that for all young kids.
8) Is there one of your characters that you did not like when you started writing about them, but found yourself liking by the end of the story?
Not in this story.

9) What is your least favorite part about writing? Editing. I always edit three times before sending it to my editor for the first time.
The Most? When it is all flowing and the words just seem to type themselves. That is a magical experience.

10) When you are not writing or editing what do you do for relaxation? Love on my German Shepard Rocky, travel, public speaking and doing strategy plans and consulting with businesses and entrepreneurs.

11) What genre of books do you like to read?
Thriller, Suspense, Self-Development, Mystery, Children’s
12) What author(s) do you enjoy reading?  Why? 
Dr. Suess – he’s fun and I have a grandson
James Patterson – I love suspense thrillers and hos short chapters are such an easy read
John Grisham, Mary Higgins Clark
I read numerous self-development books – Tony Robbins, Eckhardt Tolle, Deepak Chopra
John Grisham, Mary Higgins Clark

13) Tell us about your books where can people find them?
Fall in love with Sophie by searching Diary of an Ugly Sweater on Amazon or Kindle.

I am not a horse. I will not sleep in a stall ever again. She stomped her foot for emphasis. ~SAGA—Legends of the Travelers, 1 by J.A. Campbell

~ Excerpt ~

"My Prince, High Mage Nessa sent me to fetch you." Jarl considered ignoring the servant. He was in the middle of a great battle with a couple of the other mage children and he wanted to test his catapult. If Jarl sent him away, he knew his parents, the high mages, wouldn't be pleased. The thought of actually having to do chores, even if only for a week, was distasteful. They had servants for a reason, after all. Jarl sighed and waved at his friends before acknowledging the servant. The boy wasn't much older than him, and wore plain brown as all the servants did. He looked up hopefully from the ground, briefly meeting Jarl's eyes, before remembering his place and casting his gaze to the ground again. That breach of etiquette could get the boy flogged, and perhaps Jarl would save him greater punishment later if he had him whipped now. It was only a lash when you met the eyes of a son or daughter of a great mage or noble. The twenty required if you dared to look into the eyes of one of the mages would probably kill the boy. Jarl decided it was too much trouble and ignored the eye contact. "Where?" "Their private rooms." Jarl's stomach sank. Maybe they'd found out about the prank he and Conor had played on Cook. It hadn't been nice, putting cheese crumbs in her favorite apron and leaving it where the rats could get to it, but she was mean. She'd been head cook for as long as anyone could remember and made the most amazing pies, which was probably why his father tolerated her disrespectful attitude. Jarl nodded and headed across the well-manicured grounds toward the castle. Built with magic and stone, the castle towered above him. Banners flapped from the battlements, snapping in the breeze that didn't reach down into the walled grounds. One of the side entrances was closest and, once inside, he dashed into the servants' ways. He wasn't supposed to run through the narrow hallways and grand corridors because a ruler's son was always composed and regal. He could get away with it in the dank servants' ways though, as long as he wasn't out of breath when he arrived. In good shape, Jarl could run forever like the dire wolves that hunted the northern mountains. It was completely permissible for Jarl to run outside and he loved the feeling of freedom that it gave him. One day he would be permitted beyond the confines of the castle and would race all over his world. Those musings kept him occupied until he ran out of back ways to dash through. He stopped and took a few deep breaths to calm his racing heart, made sure his clothing wasn't disheveled, and then stepped into the opulent hallway that led to his parents' suites. The thick blue carpeting muffled his footfalls and he felt the eyes of the guards stationed periodically through the hallway on his back. When he boldly looked at them however, none seemed to have moved a muscle, not even to twist their eyes and look at him. The guards wore dark green livery emblazoned with the crystal and the griffin. Only mages wore blue. Even mages in training couldn't wear blue until they reached the first order. Jarl reached the heavy oak doors carved with the ever-present griffin and crystal symbols. The guards ignored him and he knocked on the door. An attendant inside opened it for him. Jarl hurried through the outer receiving room, well used to its ornate decorations and elegantly carved furniture. Blue dominated the room. Mostly bare except for some comfortable furniture for lounging and tables and lamps for reading. The private room beyond contrasted sharply. The tapestry and the picture of Jarl and his mother were the only decorations. His parents sat at the table reading. They both looked at him when he entered, and Jarl tried not to act guilty. "Your hair is sticking up. I do believe you have a leaf in it." His mother sounded stern, but he could see a glint of amusement in her eyes. "Sorry, Mother." He ran a hand through his short curls and pulled the offending leaf out of his hair. Then he held it awkwardly, not knowing what to do with it. "Oh, throw it in the fireplace and come here." She smiled and stood. Jarl did as he was told and hugged his mother tightly. His father stood. "How are you today, son?" "Fine, Father. What can I do for you?" At only ten, the formality was hard for Jarl, but he did try. "We have a surprise for you." Jarl's heart lightened. They hadn't heard about the cheese! He couldn't understand how though, as Cook had raised a huge fuss when she'd found her rat-chewed apron. "Yes, Father?" A slight smile creased his father's face at the eagerness in his voice. Jarl had tried to contain it, but he loved good surprises. The smile made him even happier, slight as it was. Geraint Ilmarinen was not a man used to smiling. "If you're good, and you master that spell you've been struggling with, you'll find out tonight. Meet us in the stables an hour after dinner." Jarl's heart sank again, but only a little. He almost had that spell down. Requiring concentration on two different components at once, thus far he'd managed to fail at the last minute every time. "Yes, Father." "Go practice, Jarl. We'll forgive you if you need to miss your dinner." His mother's smile appeared more often, but still he treasured it. He grinned back at her. "Yes, Mother. If I may be excused?" Having permission to skip dinner meant he could send a servant for food and avoid having to dress nicely and all that stuff he hated about court. "Of course." He gave a quick bow and, unable to contain his excitement, he ran from the room. "Walk!" The tolerant reprimand followed him out the door and he forced himself to slow once he reached the public hallway. It didn't take long for him to arrive at the practice room, and he set to work on the spell with renewed enthusiasm.
∞ ∞ ∞
It took him several hours, and he almost forgot to eat the dinner that the servant brought for him, but Jarl finally got the spell to work. For all the effort, it was a relatively simple result. He was supposed to take a regular candle and make it burn with a green flame. Lighting the candle with magic was simple enough. However, altering the components of the wick to make it burn green wasn't as easy. Jarl could have cast a simple illusion on the flame, but that wasn't the point of the exercise. Supposedly, once you could perform the spell reliably with a candle, and then other fires, you would be able to apply the principles to much more complicated and powerful works of magic. Jarl, now able to focus on something other than the magic singing through his veins, distantly heard the bell toll seven times. He was late! He should have left for the stables twenty minutes ago. He hastily grabbed a fresh candle, along with the one he'd managed to craft the spell on, and slipped into the servants' ways so he could run. His parents would understand. They always did when magic was involved, however he didn't want to keep them waiting, or they might decide he hadn't mastered the spell in time. He hadn't even had time to wonder about the surprise. He thought it might be a horse of his very own since they were meeting in the stables. He could ride any horse he wanted—as long as it wasn't one of the hunting or warhorses. To have one of his very own seemed special. It also meant his father might start taking him out into the countryside more. Jarl felt confined, like he was missing out on life, since he mostly had to stay on castle grounds until he went off to school in a few years. Those with magical talent had to be protected until they could protect themselves. Shadow creatures called Ovattr hunted mages, very effectively. Now and again, a body would be returned to the castle, or the Mage School, torn by claw and tooth. The treacherous Alfar created the creatures long ago to destroy the human mages. Jarl forced himself to walk when he reached the door leading from the servants' ways to the outer courtyards. Though still light out at this time of year, the oppressive heat of the day had lifted, and a light breeze dried the sweat dampening his hair. A seabird cried out, circling overhead, seeming to mock Jarl for running late. In his impatience, Jarl ended up half jogging when he wasn't in view of the stables, and walking as properly as he could when he knew his parents might see him. Liveried guards stood outside the main doors, the green contrasting nicely with the stone that made up the front of the stables. They didn't so much as glance at Jarl. Still, he imagined he could feel their eyes on him as he scooted passed their forbidding presence. The statue-like guards had always unnerved him, though he worked hard not to let it show. Airy and open, the stables smelled of horse and dust and sweet hay. A dapple-gray that Jarl occasionally rode nickered when he saw the boy. Jarl smiled and scratched the horse on the nose before heading deeper into the large building. A high-pitched angry squeal, followed by the thump of hooves against a wooden stall, startled him. By the time most horses made it into the stables, they were quiet. The horses in training and the warhorses were kept elsewhere. A bucket crashed to the ground. Jarl heard other angry thumps and squeals, and he thought he heard the ghost of a voice screaming: Let me go!
