National Children's Book Week, and Delilah Dusticle!

Did you know it's USA National Children's Book Week? And here I am writing and rewriting my next book of children's Bible stories (published by Cape Arago Press). It's so easy just to tell the familiar story, and so much harder--also more satisfying--to find an anchor that might make kids relate and repeat, and maybe even learn from it. Still, the collection's growing, and I hope to have at least one more book completed soon.

Meanwhile, Delilah Dusticle, which I reviewed a while ago (click here for my review of Delilah Dusticle), is free to download via Amazon this weekend (Saturday 18th to Monday 20th May), and I'm happy to be part of the promotion party. Maybe Delilah will eradicate some dust and cobwebs for me...


Delilah Dusticle is a short story that has been enjoyed by young people and adults alike. The story has been described as heart-warming, captivating, delightful and fun.


"I loved Delilah, I loved Abi, I loved reading this story"


Delilah Dusticle has special powers, she can completely eradicate dust. With her quiver pouch of special dusters Delilah can run up walls and reaches places others just can’t. As a maid in the Fenchurch-Whittington house Delilah’s unusual skills soon lead to her being promoted to Chief Dust Eradicator and Remover. Until one day a broken heart leads to her powers taking an expected turn.

This is the first in a series of touching and funny stories about Delilah Dusticle. Follow her on a journey of self-discovery, friendship and adventure.

Excerpt:

A suit of armour standing beside her in the hall coughed and shot out a puff of dust from its helmet. “Staff are not permitted to fraternise with the family and any shenanigans would lead to instant dismissal,” wheezed the armour.

“Don’t I know it,” said Delilah who then waved her duster at the falling dust cloud making it vanish in mid-air. For good measure she selected her dandelion duster and polished the armour, who was very ticklish and kept giggling. She then made her way to the staff kitchen for dinner.
