#Freebooks Reviews

If anybody would like a FREE copy of any of my books in exchange for a review on Amazon, I’d be more than happy to send you a copy via email.

Please send me a short note, and I’ll be in touch: adonnellywriter@yahoo.com


Here’s a quick overview of the titles I currently have online:

CHARLIE THE MIGRATING SNAIL: a young, curious snail sets off on anĀ  adventure to find answers to all the questions in his head, and is very surprised by what he discovers.

THE COCKROACH CHRONICLES: a cockroach explores the world of The Enemy (humans) to discover why they are hated so much. A reflection on humanity and a mirror to how we, as humans, are not living in balance with the natural world.

MICHAEL AND THE MAGIC HICCUP – The Adventure Begins: a quaint fairytale about a common garden gnome that hiccups his way into a magical kingdom.

MICHAEL AND THE MAGIC HICCIP – The Teapot’s Revenge: part two of the story of a special garden gnome, that rescues the Princess and her friends, and becomes a hero afterall.


I’ll also post the reviews on this blog, and if you have a link to your site, or books, I’ll add them to my resources section.


Many thanks for your help and support.




Spiritual Quotations: “As We Enter…”

Since I was a young lad, I have always enjoyed quotations of all types, but especially those of an inspirational or spiritual nature.

Many I have altered over the years and added a new spin to, as they either didn’t make sense or resonate with me, or I simply felt they just didn’t go far enough. In moments of contemplation and meditation – often while writing – little gems fall into my mind.

This is the case with the quotation below, that appears in one of my ‘children’s stories for adults’, The Cockroach Chronicles.


“As we enter, so shall we exit.

What we leave behind can be

a beach to walk upon, or

footprints in the sand.”


In expansion of this quotation, some of my readers have wondered if there was a hierarchy to this. That is to say was I implying that creating a beach to walk upon was a better pursuit than merely walking upon one. My point doesn’t draw a comparison, as the opening suggests, we arrive with none of the illusionary, physical trappings many of us strive to acquire during our short ‘vacation’ here in this strange, perceived reality, and we cannot take any of that ‘stuff’ with us at the end. What we can do in this preciously short period of experience is create something of pleasure for us (and others) to enjoy, or enjoy all the wonderful things that are already here. It is all transitory and impermanent.

We came here to share and enjoy all the love and beauty that surrounds us.



Thank you for finding and stopping by my author site.

Please pop back regularly for updates on new works-in-progress, reviews, musings, and spiritual observations. From time to time I shall be posting more in depth articles about various spiritual themes and awakenings that I allude to in my Children’s stories and writings.

As always, I encourage comments, suggestions, personal reviews and feedback.

Many thanks!
