Review: Moorehead Manor by David McMullen-Sullivan

Moorehead Manorby Claire Rees

So I decided to take a short break from zombies and instead find a good haunted house story. Moorehead Manor caught my eye because of the creepy picture on the front.

The story involves three teens on their way home after baseball practice, Emily, her brother Adam and his best friend Jimmy. Messing about on the way near the woods, Jimmy’s prize baseball accidentally gets hit into an old abandoned house. Not wanting to leave it he runs in after it and the others follow. They find themselves trapped inside the home with a violent spirit who has a horrible past. They scramble to get out of the house as quickly as they can before the spirit claims them forever. They meet two ghosts one lost in unhappiness and despair and the other a violent, nasty ghost determined to kill them. They are shown various scenes from the houses history that helps them to decide who the terrifying ghost is and actually this helps them in the end.

The story was good and at the beginning I was shouting ‘no just leave it! Don’t go in there!’  I knew something bad was going to happen, but as always the characters didn’t listen and they went into the creepy house.

The storyline was really well thought out with a sad, creepy, violent history and the end has a twist that will shock!

I would recommend this to anyone who loves a good ghost story. It is also tailored to a YA audience.

Why Use Calibre, The Easier Way to Organize eBooks by @CeriClark

calibre screenshot 2013 for blogpost
Have you heard of Calibre? No? Great! I would like to share with you this wonderful software for the first time. You have heard of it? Did you know that you can catalogue your Kindle books or even your paperback, hardbacks or even DVDs? 

So what is it? Calibre is free, ebook management software. "What’s that?" you might ask. Well, say you are an avid reader (I used to be although I don’t have so much time now.) I have hundreds, possible thousands of books on my Kindle. Kindle is amazing as is my ePub reader on my phone and tablet. If I want to find a book in any e-reader’s software, I have to search for the author, book title or go through categories. It’s not the easiest way to find books if all I want to do is browse and let inspiration hit me. 

Calibre is basically like the library catalogue you would find down your local library when you want to find a book, but it only holds your books, is tailored to you and is free! Shh, don’t tell your librarian that, they may go green with envy, those library catalogues can cost thousands! 

A Simpler Guide to Calibre
You can catalogue your book and upload it inside Calibre. When cataloguing you can give a book tags. This means that one book can be in more than one place, unlike a Kindle category. For example, say I have a sci-fi romance ebook. I want that book to go into the sci-fi category but what if I am browsing the romance category and I want something different? With Calibre, if you have put these two words while you are adding the book to your catalogue, then bam! You click on either tag in the ‘tag box’ and it will appear, begging you to read it. 

As a former librarian I’m going to admit to something I wouldn’t do in my old day job. Come on, lean in closer, I’m going to whisper this one. I judge books by their covers. I know, I know, I probably said it a thousand times not to do that to the kids at the school I once worked at but really who doesn’t? The reason I love Calibre so much is that I can choose a genre or one I make up when I’m cataloguing it and then with the cover flow on, I can later click on that genre and just flick with my mouse from right to left and get a load of beautiful covers flitting before my eyes. It’s like browsing in a shop. Click on that cover and the back cover description displays on the right. Another click and I have the option to send that book directly to my kindle (if it isn’t already on there) or then go to my Kindle and search by title. After all I now know what book I want to read. 

I do have to admit though, it does take a while to set up in the beginning but once you start using it, you will love it. I even put in my paperbacks and some DVDs. They are not ‘in’ Calibre like ebooks but the tags I put in tell me exactly where they are in my house (e.g. top shelf, guest bedroom) or if I’ve lent them to a friend! To be honest I don’t know what I would do without it now. 

Go on have a go. What do you have to lose? After all, it is free.

Critter Control to the Rescue by Jeannie Kaye (@jeanniekaye_)

Are you aware there are varmints lurking in your writing? Even worse, you may have made these pests into pets. Pets you love and adore. But as a writer, you must call in critter control to trap those little guys. You may be asking, “Where are these vermin? How can I find them and delete them from my manuscript?” Ah. It’s tough, but it can be done.

The critters I’m talking about are the pet words and phrases we use redundantly, repetitiously, over and over again. These darling creatures are such a part of us, we don’t even notice they’re loitering in our manuscripts. That’s because our pet phrases permanently nest in our conversations; they make up our normal everyday writing vocabulary. Our beloved pet words and phrases even find expression through our characters.

Yep. These pets have to go. You can keep a few, but savvy readers will notice if you use the same phrase or word too many times, flagging your writing as amateurish. And bad. And weak. Time to euthanize those little buggers.

The problem is, these varmints often hide from our conscious minds. Yet, there are several ways to find them.

Search for Commoners

You might be able to identify some of these pesky pets yourself. Do a search for the most commonly overused words and hit the delete or thesaurus key.

The first pet I had to send on its way was my cute little furry kitten called “just.” I just loved to use just in my sentences because it just seemed to emphasis what I was saying so much more. I was just getting started on this writing journey and was just so excited about pouring thoughts and ideas onto the page that I just overused the word to a point that it just annoyed even me. Of course, I had read that “just” was a commonly overused word. I still use it once in a while/sometimes/occasionally, but now, after a manuscript is complete, I go on a search mission to destroy that furry creature.

Look at the list below. These are commonly used words that will make your writing weak:


Critique Partner

Ever Locked
Another way to find these pests is to ask your critique partners to look for overused words. They’ll spot the most frequent ones pretty easily while they’re critiquing your work.

In one chapter, I used the word “little” about eight times. In most instances, the word could simply be deleted. Other times, it could be changed out with a synonym.


A good editor can find those insidious words that your critique partners may miss. My editor noticed I used the word “gaze” in almost every chapter. It was hard to find an alternative, but in some cases, I simply changed the action and removed the sentence altogether.

Good editors are a must. They are worth their weight in gold. Love your editor well. Send him or her gifts.


If you use an editing software for writers, like Scrivener, you’ll find a tab that lets you see the most frequently used words in the chapter you’re working on and in the entire document. You’ll have to scroll down to find them as the words such as “the” “a” “an” and your characters’ names will be at the top.

Here’s an example of how common words can weaken your writing. The excerpt is taken from my newly released novel, Ever Locked. You’ll see some overused words. After you read it, take a look at the corrected excerpt below it.

Zo’s gaze bore into her. “I really don’t even know who you are anymore, Iris.”
“Neither do I.” Her voice was laden with heaviness. His heart was weighed down by it.
“He’s changed you,” Zo said. “You’re just not the same. Don’t let him turn you into someone that you’re not. Don’t let his ways become your ways. Stay true to yourself.”
Her laugh was bitter, her gaze so full of pain. “Well, perhaps it’s just as they say, you are the company you keep.”


And here’s the corrected excerpt.

Zo studied her face. “I don’t even know who you are anymore, Iris.”
“Neither do I.” Her voice, laden with heaviness, weighed down his heart.
“He’s changed you,” Zo said. “Don’t let him turn you into someone you’re not. Don’t let his ways become your ways. Stay true to yourself.”
She laughed bitterly. “Well, as they say, you are the company you keep.”

As I said, gaze was a pet word in the early versions of Ever Locked. So I removed it completely from this segment in both the first and last lines.

Removing the overused word “was” is always tricky and required playing around with the sentence a bit in the second line.

Typically, “just” can be removed completely, as can “perhaps.”

Cutting this section to its most basic elements makes the scene more powerful.

With these tools, you can tighten up your writing, saying, “Adios, amigos!” to your favorite pets that skulk about trying to mar an otherwise beautiful work of art.

Q&A with Melissa Pimentel

Melissa Pimentel
Although LOVE BY THE BOOK is a novel, the premise comes from an experiment that you conducted in your own life, that you turned into a blog called “Love by the Book.” What made you want to try this and how did you come up with the idea?

The idea came after a year of semi-successful dating in London. I’d come out of a serious relationship the year before (a marriage, in fact) so I wasn’t looking for anything remotely serious… and yet every time I tried to convey that to a guy, they seemed to think I was trying to trick them. It was getting annoying, so when the idea came to me to try these different dating guides – and effectively turn my love life into a science experiment – it instantly appealed. I’ve always thought that dating should be fun – when I was in college, I used to play a game called “wrong or funny” with my roommate in which we’d get ourselves in slightly awkward/controversial situations with guys and then ask each other if the situation was wrong or funny (the best ones were both) – so this felt like killing two birds with one stone: making a game out of dating and also (maybe, hopefully) learning something about male behavior along the way.

Why did you decide to write this as a novel and not as a memoir?

Love by the Book
In truth, I ran out of material! The real-life experiment was going really well for a few months. It was fun (if exhausting) and the blog was starting to get some traction… but then lo and behold, I went on a first date with one of the test subjects and fell in love. It was sort of a double-edged sword: on the one hand, I was happy to have met the love of my life (we’re now engaged) but on the other, I was kind of annoyed that I had to give up the project. I actually tried to keep it going for the first month we were together, but it was getting too weird. An editor at Penguin who had been following the blog suggested a try to fictionalize it, and here we are!

I’m actually really glad that it ended up being a novel rather than a memoir, as fiction allowed me to be more creative about what happens to Lauren. I was able to incorporate dating horror stories that my friends had told me and also invent situations, which was really satisfying. Though I have to say, real life is often more ridiculous than fiction!

How do you think the dating world has changed in the last two decades? What rules are the same and what rules are different?

I think that there’s more choice out there for everyone, which can be both a good and a bad thing. Women are more comfortable with saying that they’re looking for no-strings sex and I think there’s less pressure on women to settle down and couple off before they’re ready – which is obviously a good thing. I get the feeling that women in their twenties are less concerned about finding Mr. Right (GOD I hate that phrase) than the generation before them, and their focus now is more on their career/friends/self/life in general than getting some dude to buy them a ring. I do think it’s taking guys longer to catch on to that mentality, though, and a lot of guys still think that if a woman has sex with them, that means wants to marry them. And it doesn’t.

There’s also all the choice that online dating has brought about. Think back to Jane Austen times, when there were basically three eligible bachelors in any given neighborhood, so chances were good that you’d end up with one of them. These days, basically every single person within a five mile radius is just a message or a swipe away. This amount of choice is amazing in some ways – what if all three of those bachelors in Austen’s neighborhood were dicks? – but also sort of overwhelming. If everyone’s available, what’s the incentive of giving the person you’re going on a first date with a fair shot? Or the guy who’s photo doesn’t ring your bell, but who might be super charming and funny in person? And Christ only knows that men feel the same way, if not more. I read an interview recently with the two most popular people on a big online dating site – a straight guy and a straight girl. Both received hundreds of messages from prospective suitors. The girl was clearly a little freaked out by it, and the attention had made her more selective, while the guy was like, THIS IS AMAZING.

There are a couple of things that have remained the same, though. The first, more superficial, thing is that everyone loves a chase. For whatever reason, the human race appears to be hardwired to desire the things/people/situations we can’t have, and that is certainly true of dating. As sad and anachronistic as it sounds, if you want a guy to pay more attention to you, pay less attention to him. Don’t text him for a while. Date other guys. Men have some sort of radar about this: if they feel your attention is elsewhere, they’ll want to get it back.

The second, arguably more important, thing is that when it happens, it happens. Dating should be fun! Turning it into a serious issue won’t get you any closer to finding your soulmate, but putting yourself in awkward/unexpected situations just might. Be open to anything but expect nothing. Love is a weird animal and it will sneak up on you when you least expect it. Just make sure you have a lot of fun before it gets you.

What was the most ridiculous thing that’s happened to you on a date?

Oh, god. So many. There was the guy who ordered two drinks for my every one, and then ended up so shitfaced I had to put him in a cab. The guy who ate seemingly an entire head of garlic at dinner and then planted a kiss on me so bad that it made me cancel our second date. The professor who lured me to his apartment with the promise of giving me a book he’d mentioned, only to try to (literally) trap me in his kitchen as he offered to be my sugar daddy… honestly, it got to the point where I was surprised when I went on a non-ridiculous date. And a little disappointed.

What’s the lamest excuse a guy has given you when they come down with “The Fear?”

Well, as in the book, a man did literally choose watching Football Focus (which is a show in the UK dedicated to a bunch of talking heads discussing the Premiere League) over having sex with me, which was a low. And there was another who told me that I was looking for too much commitment when I suggested we try seeing each other more than once every six weeks. Actually, that was the same guy… Hmm.

You’ve worked in the publishing industry for you entire career, currently at Curtis Brown in London.  Did you find that your experience has helped you during the writing and acquisition process? How does it feel to be the writer instead of the agent?

I honestly don’t think I would have written this book if I didn’t work in the industry. I would never have had the courage (or the will) to go off on my own volition, write an entire novel, submit it to agents… no way. I would have been way too nervous and self-conscious. I feel incredibly lucky that the editor at Penguin UK, Hana, approached me about the idea and that my great friend and colleague, Felicity, agreed to be my agent. I also feel incredibly guilty, as I know there are so many people out there writing away and hoping to get published one day, and I sort of fell into it. (Though the writing of the actual book was actually pretty tricky while holding down a full-time job, so I will allow myself a little bit of credit).

As for being on the other side of things, it’s actually been really fascinating! I definitely have a bigger respect for the publishing process as a whole. There are so many people involved in the process, and so much work goes into making the finished product – it’s sort of breathtaking to witness. As a writer, you’re sat at your desk pecking away at a keyboard for months on end and then suddenly you’re swept up in this huge publishing machine. It’s really impressive to see it in action.

Did any of the dating guides give you a tip that actually worked?

Two things really worked: playing hard to get, as per The Rules (which I was pretty bad at, because I’m impatient and also because PATRIARCHY!) and flirting with everyone you come across, as per the 1920s guide, The Technique of the Love Affair. This was so much fun and such a big confidence booster – it really proved to me that if you have your light on and you’re open and receptive, basically anyone and everyone will flirt back. And that’s really fun.

Which guide ended up helping the most? Which was the biggest disaster?

I think The Technique of the Love Affair was the most successful in that it was the most fun and definitely made me change the way I went about my everyday business. Even the morning commute started to be fun, as I’d try to get as many cute guys to make eye contact with me as possible (though this is slightly risky on the Tube, where there might be a psychopath waiting quietly behind that cute veneer).

The most disastrous was probably Why Men Love Bitches, because I was trying to shoehorn it into my life after I’d met my partner. Also, while I appreciated the sentiment – I completely agree that no woman should feel like they need to accommodate a guy’s every whim and fancy – but I thought the wording was a little off. You can be a strong, independent woman who tells men what you want and what you think (men should and do love that) without being a bitch. No one likes an asshole.

What’s the one piece of advice you’d give to someone who considers themselves cursed in the dating world?

Broaden your horizons. Go out with the guy who doesn’t seem like your type, or whose picture is a little weird, or who’s two inches shorter than your ideal height. You never know what you’re going to find. And try to enjoy yourself – obviously dating can be excruciating at times, but there are so many other elements of life that cause stress and unhappiness. Dating really should be one of the enjoyable parts. And if at all possible, play Wrong or Funny. It’s seriously so much fun.

Beth Davenport has no interest in getting involved with another man for the foreseeable future. To say her last relationship ended in disaster would be a colossal understatement.
