Great Onions and welcome! Check out our index of topics. All the topics are 'live' so you can add any books in any area you like and we can also start new threads if you have a particular interest that we haven't covered yet. It's also good to go to the Discussions tab and sort by 'most recent' because we do jump around a lot! Hope to see you in the discussions soon.
Decided to following after looking at your shelf - Very interesting! Several years ago we spent time in Dublin/Ireland touring the country and we fell in love with it. Our last 3 days we stayed at a B&B in Dun Laoghaire, one of our favorite places to stay in Ireland.
Hello Onions, what an intriguing random choice, at a glance I see two birds and two devils! Whenever I'm in Ireland I head for the bookshops to look for titles not seen in London. It's hard to keep up with Irish writing. Obviously, and with justification, Tana French goes down a storm. Any other bright sparks over there lately?
I hope that the season finds you warm and reading. We had a bit of a blizzard yesterday. Hoping for a mild winter but Mother Nature has a mind of her own and often carries a big stick.
Dracula: Hearts of Stone (Dracula is a good guy)
We start with a shiny new pot of boiling water and add too many evil vampires, and not enough of the good biters. Toss in one suicidal Dracula; add a cup of mayhem and a dash of romance. Stir in some red sheriffs. Oh yes, and a pinch of mirth. Stir lovingly and you have a novel by A. J. Gallant. If it sounds like the recipe for you then you must read Dracula: Hearts of Stone.

Unrealistic or not my writing gives me hope. But with something like 50 000 books published a month it is a little discouraging. I can just picture my book underneath that pile being crushed. I didn’t think there were that many writers.
