Bone by Bone

Okay, it’s been a very long time since I finished my first fiction stack.  I think I am now on my third.

Three out of the nine titles in stack No. 1 were “fails” (i.e. I didn’t finish reading them), but there were also some real gems (i.e. books that were better than expected!)…AND I picked one to do my creative writing university-assignment on.  Which was really the point of this whole fiction blitz endeavour in the first place.  But I think I’ll leave that particular book until last, so you’ll have to try guess which one it was.  Hopefully.  If I ever get reviews up for the whole stack!

So, the next we have Bone by Bone, written by Tony Johnston, who is a female by the way.

The Butterfly Circus

I was surfing the web the other day when I came across this little film.

Well, there's more of a story behind it than that.  It took a little hunting around in the right places, but voila!

Doorpost is a one of the largest online film festivals held once a year.  [I didn't even know there were online film festivals!]

What I like about Doorpost is the fact that all film entries have to fit into a topic category:


I'll be keeping an eye on these short films!

Back to the Butterfly Circus....
It won the 2009 Short Film Competition, and I can see why.

Doorpost is so great about sharing the films that I could pop it here on my blog for you to see!  It goes for about 20 minutes, so grab a mini snack, and possibly your family, and enjoy!

PS.  This is the acting debut of a very special Australian, so keep an eye out for him. ;)

Lovely, right?

Crocodile Tears

Now, I don’t want to hear any groans from people who have read an Alex Rider book before.  

They may seem to be aimed at 14 year old adrenaline junkie males who hate to read anything that could put them to sleep (incidentally that describes Alex Rider himself).  I think there is a little more to them than that.
