"Overnight the sky fell down. From the US and across the Atlantic the shockwaves travelled to the tiny island that for so many years had been letting the good times roll without ever wondering when the wheels would come off and burn."
When I saw this image I thought of The Pink Cage by Derbhile Dromey. The book is about Astrid Johnson, a 26-year-old freelance proof-reader and DJ who has eyes that do their own thing. Astrid inhabits two distinct worlds: a world of beats and flashing lights, and a world of dusty books and seawater.
With its pulsing soundtrack and disembodied electronic voices, The Pink Cage is a novel that you can hear as well as see. If you like books that expose the extraordinary worlds hidden beneath the surface of ordinary life, you will love this book.
If you like reading on your eReader you’re in luck; The Pink Cage is available from amazon.com in eBook format.

"Love grows and flourishes in many different ways throughout our lives."
"A wise man knows each day the sun will rise and set, and though some days seem shorter or longer than others do, all days are equal in time. But the wisest men know that no two days are ever the same, and some are more precious and special in our hearts than others."
The LA Commandments, by Gillian Duffy
Joanne Kavanagh and best friend Suzie pack their bags and swap dreary, depressing Dublin for the cool Californian coast. Both are determined to start a new life in the land of opportunity, leaving behind the recession and their complicated families.
They make a pact at the airport to stick religiously to the ‘LA Commandments’, a list of ten ‘Thou Shalt Nots’ for their new life in LA, including ‘Thou Shall Not Fall in Love,’ but when Jo befriends sexy, shy musician Marc, and Suzie falls for womanizing bar-man Chris, not only are the commandments at risk of being broken, but also the girls’ hearts…
With all California has to offer —sunshine, shopping, killer nightlife, and drop-dead-gorgeous men, will the girls stay faithful to the LA Commandments?
