Trends... What to be seen with this Summer

Shorts are this summer's big trend...
I am not speaking of clothing; I am talking about books. This year, to be 'uber cool', you must be seen reading short stories. Lazing on the beach, lounging around a pool, or simply sipping coffee in a chic pavement café while you watch the world go by, you just 'have to have' a short story book in your hand.

Film stars, celebrity and musicians may be seen flaunting the bright orange covers of any one of the 'Tales of Crime & Violence' books. From the Hamptons to Cartagena and Bora Bora, those who are 'on Trend' could be reading 'Within the Invisible Pentacle'. Otherswill have downloaded copies of Paul White's Electric Eclectic books onto their Kindle, Kobo and Nook, ready to read at a touch of a button.

Update on Barns & Noble…

The May edition of Electric Press – Literary Insights magazine led with a feature on Waterstones, the UK bookstore. This is the latest news. The hedge fund (Elliott), owner of the UK’s largest book chain, Waterstones, has bought Barnes & Noble, the biggest chain in the US. The UK arm of the $35bn Elliott Management hedge fund plans to install James Daunt, the Waterstones boss, in New York as chief executive of both chains, with the two brands retained and operated separately. Barnes & Noble’s founder and chairman, Leonard Riggio, said Waterstones and Elliott were “uniquely suited to improve and grow our company for many years ahead” and promised to work with Daunt for a smooth transition.

A New Summer Garden

A New Summer Garden is Paul White's seventh Electric Eclectic book.

'A New Summer Garden' is a crime drama; a story of cheating, of greed, of revenge and murder.

Sam was a down and almost out with little prospect for the future when he meets Rachelle, the beautiful wife of the philanderous Peter, the kingpin of an international criminal business empire.
When Peter catches Sam 'in flagrante' with Rachelle, he ensures Sam's simple life becomes uncomfortably complicated.
What happens next leads Sam down an ever-darkening pathway, where the only plausible outcome is for him to end up in prison, or dead... most probably both.
Here is a short excerpt to whet your whistle...   

I have never played poker before. The only game I played with cards was ‘Snap’ when I was a child and I usually lost then. Yet somehow, by one o’clock in the morning, there was a great pile of money in front of me, bunches of twenty and fifty-pound notes.
Things were looking good.

By three o’clock my e…

The new App readers are loving.

Occasionally, something makes you sit up and take notice.
The world is full of a million and one bits of information zapping about the Interweb, popping up on our phones and tablets, so for anything to 'jump-out' and grab you it must be a little bit, or a big bit, special.
What caught my eye is an App.
"Big deal" I hear you say. 
This App is not technically amazing, it is not even a great design; in fact, it is pretty much basic when judged on those levels and it's not simply because it is a FREE App. It is what the App is all about that makes it's wonderful.
I'll explain…
Just over a year ago, several authors joined together and formed 'Electric Eclectic'. They started producing short books, e-Books Novelettes, designed as 'sample' or 'introductory' books to their other works.
The idea being, if someone enjoyed one of their shorter stories they will then buy a full-length novel or another book of that author's works.
Since then…

Why is Electric Eclectic causing an internet storm?

Generally, I keep BRILLIANT BLOG SHARE as a special platform for hand-picking and sharing some of the most Inspiring, Informative, Heartfelt and Entertaining blogs on the web. You only have to read the amazing posts in these archives to know that.
Occasionally, I post about a product or service which I think is wonderful, ground-breaking or just plain crazy.
Today, I write about one of those. It is a relatively new, but fast-growing way to find new books to read and great authors to follow.
It is called Electric Eclectic.
Electric Eclectic is a book brand designed to introduce readers to 'new' authors. A little like a readers meet authors 'Tinder'!
It works like this.
Readers browse the Electric Eclectic website, http://bit.ly/visitEEbooks where you will find a whole plethora of amazing 'Novelettes' demonstrating each authors style of writing and narration.
Electric Eclectic novelettes are written by many different authors and cover a large range of genre. So…
