Author friends you know how much I love to read, I’ve had the pleasure of reading some of your work. For five years I ran a book club in London, I loved it so much. I crossed paths with a wonderful author on Facebook, she has a book group with 1,000 readers and counting! I put it to her that we could actually start a proper book club, she accepted and so now I’m reaching out to all authors who may wish to submit their book to the club, to be considered as part of the Miss Flames So Bookish Summer Book Club. I’m seeking books for our club to read for June- September.
Here’s how it works…
1.Submit your book details below. Book club organisers will check the details, then confirm if your book has been included within the Club.
2. Your book will be put to our readers in a two week poll, to pick which book(s) they’d like to read! Between 1st-15th June 2020. On the 16th June 2020 the winning books will be announced, readers notified, and authors also notified.
3. If your book is one of the books in the top four with the most votes, your book will be allocated a month ( June, July, August or September) as a read for our summer book club.
4. Book club members will purchase your book – those who wish to join in on your book’s reading. We’ll start reading from the 20th of each month, and on the 25th of the FOLLOWING month there will be live questions and discussion, in the group, about your book. We encourage you to join us for this and engage with readers!
Note: the Club’s organisers have the right to accept books at their discretion to put to its book club members. It’s advisable to have your book available in as may formats as possible. We have readers who like audio most, some print, some e-book etc. We aim to be inclusive of members who have disabilities and need certain formats such as audio. The more you have the better!

Kim’s Review 5 Well Written, Surprising & Heart Warming Stars!
I came across this publisher on Facebook, offering avid readers the chance to read some free books. I picked this book as the title drew me in, I do like Christmas themed stories and I’ve never read a military one. The first thing I have to say is it’s just twenty pages, and therefore a short story. That said, it deserves five stars I feel from my reading experience, it’s length did not in my view as a reader take away anything at all. Yes, I did want more, when a reader says that it’s never a bad thing, a compliment to the author! We loved your work. Here’s what I loved about this little romance story.
Development– Like I said, this story is just twenty pages, but I found as soon as I read the first few pages the author really did do a great job at showing how the main character felt, over the loss of her husband. In such a short story, the feelings are developed well, I appreciated the author’s ability to draw me right in, and make me care about this lady’s story and her loss.
The writing style- clean, crisp, and a plot that moved along. I was very engaged. Read it in one sitting.
The surprise twist- my five star experience as a reader really was here! There’s an unexpected twist that just touched my heart. I don’t like to give spoilers, let’s just say it’s everything a romance lover could expect. The twist in the plot made me go ‘ohhh wow” and giggle a bit.
Overall, five stars from me, a well crafted short story and a good example of how to write an engaging plot in such little words. Romance was there, love, loss and happiness. What more could you ask for? I’d read more from this author!
Also free on Kindle Unlimited to read.
