Hallo, Hallo dear hearts!
I have a special conversation to share with you today – as I only just learnt of this myself – where quite a few of the lovely Cedar Fort authors I have enjoyed reading have come together to offer a lovely series of bookaways for readers who are wanting to *boost* their awareness to others on behalf of the people who are creating inspiring content on their social media channels!

I love finding challenges and contests like these as they make the bookish world a bit smaller with the kindnesses which start to encircle through it’s community. What is clever about this particular event is how it’s tied to the principle of shining a light on the JOY someone else has given you to read whilst endeavouring to surprise them and yourself with a bit of BOOKISH blissitude in return! I like how the whole event is surrounded by the ‘good things’ people project through social media, how something we’ve read on our social channels has lifted our spirits and thereby, should be re-promoted to be seen by others who might not have had the chance to see it first!
These are the kinds of moments which should be celebrated as they speak to the heart of how we’re all connected. The book world is a close-knit community and one which keeps expanding per each new reader who finds STORIES to be not only thought-provoking but stimulating through the imaginations of the writers who give of themselves to give us a story which electrifies our own minds by the beauty of their words!
I readily agreed to be an ‘event cheerleader for the authors’ – as I know a lot of you enjoy reading my reviews but perhaps, haven’t had the pleasure of reading the stories? This is a lovely chance to not only tip your hat towards the goal of reading something I’ve blogged about which interested you but give the gift of a book to someone you know! Seems like a lot of lovely random acts of kindnesses are going to be sprinkled throughout the coming weeks of December!
Before I talk about the stories I recognised as being beloved reads or authors I am reading next in my reading queue of stories this December – I wanted to have a conversation with Ms Bateman, and let her explain to you how this event unfolded! Be sure to grab your favourite cuppa & settle in for a spell!
The Time Key
by Melanie Bateman
When Stanley saves a man, he’s given a mysterious device that allows him to travel through time. But he soon learns that changing his past doesn’t necessary lead to a better future. Traveling over 100 years into the future may be the only way Stanley can change his fate and save his family.
Places to find the book:

Initially, how did you pull the authors together for this event which celebrates the random joys found online through social media channels? Of where everyone at any point in time is tweeting, posting or sharing something which lifts the spirit of another and/or gives a burst of bookish joy to others?
