Ringwood is proud to present its new upcoming novel Checking Out Of The Hotel Euthanasia by Gerard Graham.
Set in a near, quixotic future, the novel takes the reader through life’s ups, downs and (literal) blasts. It inspects the controversial matter of assisted dying from all sides and illuminates its sombreness.
Newly-converted Rab Lennon takes his Scottish underlings of the Catholic United Network for the Transgression of Sins on a journey from deep-fried Glasgow to alien Villadedino – the only country worldwide where euthanasia is legal. There, we encounter a variety of characters and a voyage of discovery of the human’s versatility and volatility begins.
Checking Out Of The Hotel Euthanasia is deeply satirical and not for the faint-hearted. But see for yourself and order now!
Only recently has the Scottish government decided to increase the fund for IVF treatment for eligible couples from two to three full cicles. While in vitro fertilisation remains a controversial issue for some, this move is a step in the right direction for others.
All moral and ethical convictions aside, however, the desire to start a family turns out to be a greater fight for some than many of us can imagine. There are ways and means to have children when couples are having difficulties conceiving; these include adoption or IVF. If potential options are found, oftentimes these possibilities demand persistance and patience – and sometimes much more of both than many consider possible.
I have no better example for the sheer force of will and determination than shown in the inspirational case of Carol Fox and her double-digit tries to become pregnant with her much beloved only daughter. Where quite a few would have opted for another approach or even given up, the committed feminist followed through with her wish and eventually had a baby. In Memoirs Of A Feminist Mother she writes about the matter that attracted media coverage at that time and is still relevant to this day.
Every one says a dog is a man’s or woman’s best friend but a couple of books I have read recently have shown me how true that is.
Recently on Woman’s Hour Lauren Fern Watt, an American author discussed her dog and how when Gizelle a very large bull mastiff was diagnosed with bone cancer she created a bucket list for them to tick off ranging from watching people in Times Square to a walk on the beach. Gizelle was only 6. This is a brave book showing that even though dogs can have shorter life spans the time you are able to spend with them can be rewarding and enriching.
Like Gizelle was for Lauren, Ronnie, a lurcher cross, was a life changing experience for Susan and Colin Campbell when he came into their lives. His presence led to them changing their lifestyle and even their jobs and helped them deal with problems and loss in their lives.
Ronnie thankfully is healthy and full of fun and readers are waiting and hoping for a follow up book soon providing an update on Ronnie ‘s life and the lives of his doggy and human friends. Buy Ronnie here
Another very successful book launch with an overjoyed author and an excited audience. After 17 years, Charlie Campbell finally published Millennial Munros and family, friends, and admirers alike anticipated this publication long in advance.
Charlie Campbell took a trip down memory lane and entertained the audience with his honesty and wit – twice. He and his book turned out to be so popular and in demand that the reading and round of questions had to take place two times on the same night because the whole crowd could not fit in all at once.
By the end of the night, the audience was satisfied twice and copies were sold out.
Millennial Munros is the inspirational story of an ordinary bloke doing an ordinary job, who did something extra-ordinary. With the help of his mum and some mates, he got motivated, got fit and completed an unprecedented endurance event, in breaking the record for a continuous self-propelled round of all the Munros, Scotland’s 284 mountains over …
