A cat, a phrase, a comic and a reading spot. 

This section is an idea I borrowed from Migue and Caro, awesome bloggers of La abadía literaria.
First time on blog here.


Aww... cutest thing ever! I wonder what he is reading...


And here goes one by Ed Sheeran... not that I'm a fan... honestly I think I know only 2 or 3 songs by him... but I liked his words. 

“I can't tell you the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.” 
― Ed Sheeran


Haha, I always loved Garfield

A cat, a phrase, a comic and a reading spot

Hello everyone!

So long no see! I'm glad to be back after exams and a hectic semester. And I'm specially happy to introduce you to a nice new section of the blog:

A cat, a phrase, a comic and a reading spot. 

This section is an idea I borrowed from Migue and Caro, awesome bloggers of La abadía literaria.

So what it is about? 


It is well known the bond that links cats with the world of books... if they are not sitting or sleeping over one of our books, they are just playing in front of our pages to get our attention. This section intends to be a small tribute to these little furry friends. 


There is such great power in words and some people are better with words than others, so I intend to share some of the phrases I like (famous or not) from authors, books, characters and more.

Today I chose a quote from one of my favorite scientists ever:

“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” ― Albert Einstein


Because short comics can always make us smile... 


Personally, I read anywhere: the bed, the sofa, the bank line, the airport, doctor's office... but who doesn't like to have a special reading spot?

I hope you enjoyed...

Read, win books and help Macmillan Cancer Support!

100% of the royalties earned or accrued in the purchase of this book, in all formats, will go to the Pamela Winton tribute fund, which is in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.

You're not Alone
by Ian D. Moore and friends

An anthology, themed on relationships, of more than 20 authors 
from around the world 
From urban fantasy to stories that bring tears to the eye.

Quick Details:

Release Date:  July 11th, 2015      
Cover Design by Christine Southworth

What can be better than a good book and the satisfaction of helping others at the same time? 

An international group of indie authors, inspired by the personal grief of one, decided to collaborate in the spring of 2015 in a project to create this multi-genre smorgasbord of original short stories, all with the same potent theme – relationship. Some are heartfelt, some funny, some poignant, and some are just a little bit scary – much like relationships themselves. All are by authors fired by the shared enthusiasm to give something back in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support. 100% of the profit made on the purchase of this book, in any format, goes to the charity. Cancer touches us all. It has in some way affected those who have contributed their time and talent here. This is our way of showing that we care.

Indie authors carry forward a revolutionary shift in publishing, which allows the author to be creative director in their own work. There are many exceptional, experienced and acclaimed writers who have decided to take this bold step in publishing. In producing this anthology we have also had the inestimable assistance on board of artists, graphic designers, and bloggers – all of whom have a place in our acknowledgments. You, the discerning reader, are the other vital part of this equation. By buying this book you are supporting the work of indie authors, as well as discovering their worth. You are also supporting the charity to which we have chosen to dedicate our work.
