Elaine White's Life in Books

The Author

 

Elaine White is the author of multi-genre romance, covering everything from paranormal, crime and contemporary. Growing up in a small town and fighting cancer in her early teens taught her that life is short and dreams should be pursued. Living vicariously through her independent, and often hellion characters, she lives comfortably at home with a pack of wolves cleverly disguised as one standard poodle. The Winner of two Watty Awards – Collector's Dream (An Unpredictable Life) and Hidden Gem (Faithfully) – and an Honourable Mention in 2016's Rainbow Awards (A Royal Craving) she has explored the worlds of multiple genres, but remains a romantic at heart. A self-professed geek, Elaine has fallen in love with reading and writing LGBT romance, offering diversity in both genre and character within her stories.

 

The Reviewer

 

I’m an author and reader, who just can’t get away from books. I discovered the MM genre a few years ago and became addicted.

Ghostly Tales & Sinister Stories of Old Edinburgh - Alan J. Wilson, Des Brogan, Frank McGrail Okay, so this book truly was a tale of two halves.

First off, it's not really what it says it is. Some stories are only half a page and very vague. Most are not about ghosts at all. More like a history book of interesting facts. Not really telling stories either. Not what I expected at all.

Less than halfway through I wasn't even sure I wanted to finish this book. My TBR list is so long but I decided to give it another chance. It was difficult to read and kind of boring, even for a fan of Scottish history. Especially supposed 'ghostly tales' and 'sinister stories' It's just a shame these snippets of stories don't qualify as either. The telling of the stories sort of jump back and forward between facts.

The second half, the ghost inspired stories are interesting but also difficult to read and follow. You can clearly tell that some are written by one person, and some by someone else. Some read well, over the span of about two pages, while others are short, blunt and less than a page.
