RELEASE BLITZ: DEAR DIARY by Susan Horsnell

Title: Dear Diary
Author: Susan Horsnell     
Genre: Children’s
Blurb:
DEAR DIARY,
Rebecca is an eleven-year-old girl whose father has taken a job in a new town.
This means she is forced into a new school.
Shorter than most her age, and not quite as intelligent, makes her a prime target for ongoing bullying.
The only thing she can trust in, confide in, is her Diary.
A story about the real danger of bullying which every child should read.
This story is fictional but based on a true to life event.
I have written two children's books during my career.
This is my second, dedicated to my nephew who took his own life just a few weeks after he turned twelve years old.
I have five grandchildren who are subjected to bullying, a coward's way of displaying power over another and occurs at any age.
Hopefully through this book, both children and adults will learn how dangerous bullying can be. It's not something which can be dismissed as a childhood 'stage.'
My first book – Secret Beneath the House - is the story of two children left alone for the day. What they find under the house is another magical world.
I also write Best Selling/Award Winning Western Romance and Best Selling Contemporary Romance under a pen name.
I have been married for 43 years, have 2 married sons and 5 gorgeous grandchildren.
Hubby and I are retired and love to travel Australia with our caravan, our elderly Jack Russell dog – Caellagh (Kelly) and a very opinionated Cockatiel called Rocky.

I live in Spain with 3 Labradors, 2 children & 1 girlfriend.
Moving to Spain gave me the impetus I needed to finish Conversations with Eric. The warm climate caused me to move the second half of the novel here as well.
I love telling a compelling story that will both intrigue and excite my readers. I want to take you to places that will exhilarate as well as entertain. I’m never shy about sailing near the edge. The unusual is my normal and jaw-dropping surprising my stock-in-trade.
I am currently writing a new psychological thriller called, If The Bed Falls In. I hope to complete the novel by December 2015. If you liked Conversations with Eric, watch out, If The Bed Falls In will knock your socks off!

About the Author
When I was a child, I made up games and characters when my sister and I played with dolls. As I grew older, I would make up scenarios and scenes, fully intending to write them down but never finding the time. In my late teens, I discovered the world of role playing and settled into an avid ‘geeky’ life of D&D, comics, sci-fi and fantasy fiction. Years passed and I finally gave voice to the stories in my head. I write romance, fantasy, action and adventure. I love tales of steampunk and history, tales of magical powers and dark curses lurking in the shadows. Though The Black Lotus is not my first attempt at a novel, it is the first I have finished.

And some fun facts about me:

I sew.
My favourite Disney film is Atlantis.
I’ve been a film extra and stood 5 feet away from Sam Rockwell.
Babylon 5 is my fave sci-fi show.
I cried at the end of Toy Story 3.

EXCERPT:


Emerson?[RC1] [C2] Her eyes flicked up to meet Tay's, and a frown creased her features.How did you manage to draw a servant’s ration?Tay froze in fear as the woman glanced at the guards stationed at the sides of the room. With quick steps, two of the guards moved into place on either side of her and caught hold of her upper arms.
What's wrong?” Tay tried to sound unconcerned, but her voice came out as a small squeak. She should have known that the Centre staff would recognise her family name. The woman did not answer but nodded to the guards. Tay felt her stomach sink as they pulled her upright.I haven't done anything,” she called out as they dragged her across the floor, hands clamped about her upper arms like steel. The few other patrons of the centre stared down at the floor, ignoring her panicked voice and expression. Struggling vainly against their grip, Tay was dragged towards one of the small interrogation rooms. The guards pushed her through the door, into a small, claustrophobia-inducing, room. Rough hands thrust her into a chair, and she cried out as her elbow smashed against the arm. Both guards ignored her squeal of pain as they took positions on either side. Bulky, and solid with muscle, the guards discouraged any effort to escape. She swallowed nervously as she looked at the empty chair before her. Why had she not anticipated this? The centre controllers would know her father's name and realise that she wasn't entitled to the position that she now held.


Is this lady recognises the famous name, why don’t any of her new employers/co-workers? Maybe she his has surname from most, but the maid and nobles would know it - it’s on her employment form, apparently.
