Holiday Hosting: Chance to Win Books by Jo Robinson

Celebrate car in fireworksHello my friends.  As this year draws closer to a close, I feel a sense of gratitude, because I am sincerely thankful to each of you.  It’s been a very difficult year for me. Though that is because of a facet of my life that I don’t blog about, a few of you know some details. But that’s all beside the point. You — my friends here at Teagan’s Books, are often what gets me through the week.

I celebrate each and every one of you.  In doing that I decided to take time, before I get ready for the office, to give you a chance to win e-books from the extraordinary Jo Robinson.  That’s right — free books!  Jo is launching a new book, Echoes of Narcissus. So keep reading.  You’ll want to eat-up Jo’s books.

Now let’s get a wiggle on — heeeeeer’s Jo! 

Echoes Banner

Donna thought there was something wrong with her. That she was suffering from a mental illness that has caused her husband to despise her, distance himself from her, and cheat on her. She blames herself for the desolate, miserable thing that is her marriage and her life. Then she comes across a book that will change everything for her, and reading it, she discovers that there’s nothing wrong with her mind at all, but that there is something very wrong with her husband instead. Marco, she realises, is a malignant narcissist. A text book case. He has a real and documented mental disorder, and that he’s been controlling, manipulating, and abusing her for decades. The sudden full knowledge of all that he’s purposely done to her enrages her. Not sure how to leave after thirty years of what she finally knows has been intentional mental and emotional abuse from him, and believing that she has nowhere to turn, being so physically isolated, she bides her time.

Then she meets and befriends a group of unusual people who share her passion for gardening, and so begins her journey to escape. She joins her new friends in their project to assist elderly people in old age homes care for their small gardens, as well as secretly supplying those suffering from painful and terminal illnesses with medicinal herb and plant remedies, including illegal plants such as cannabis. As weeks go by, she delves into her memories, relearns what it is to be respected, liked, and loved again, and slowly she formulates a plan to safely leave her dangerous husband. But unbeknownst to Donna, Marco is in serious trouble, and has desperate plans of his own, and absolutely no regard for her safety.

** This is a work of fiction, but malignant narcissists really do exist, and it is a recognised mental illness. Unfortunately, many people never realise that they are involved with a narcissist, because their actions are so demonically bad as to be unimaginable and unbelievable, and so they spend their lives in misery, depression, fear, and isolation. If only by the accidental reading of a fictional story, I hope that this book will help even one person, unknowingly suffering narcissistic abuse, to realise that they don’t have to, and that it’s never too late to start over, be happy, be fulfilled, to love and care for yourself, and be truly loved and respected by others.

  1. Teagan, Jo’s book looks delicious (at least the kitty seems to be enjoying it!). I wish you the best of everything in the coming year — good company, books, writing, and more. I feel so lucky to have met you this year, and I look forward to our continued correspondence! Happy New Year!


  2. Thanks Kev. However, Jo did the entire thing about her book. And she did a great job with it. Made it really easy for me, and quick too. Or it would have been if i didn’t obsess with finding just the right pictures for my part. LOL.
    Wishing you a fabulous 2015. 😀


  3. Suzanne, you never fail to make my day. “Fans”… i’m positively giddy. Tee-hee!
    I hope you’re right about the New Year — for both of us. No doubt it brings sad memories, but there are happy ones as well. I’m more concerned about you than myself for Christmas. I mostly ignore it and it ingnores me back! 😀

    Jo is a delight. I enjoy her blog. She has a range of different types of books, so browse through them. You’re bound to find one you like. Since you like fantasy, maybe look at her “Shadow People” series.

    Love and hugs! ❤ ⭐


  4. So nice to meet Jo, Teagan you are always paying it forward. You are amazing. I hope your Christmas is joyous and I just know that 2015 will hold great success for you. Know that you are loved by your fans.


  5. Dear Trisha, it’s sweet of you to reblog this. Maybe some of your readers will win a free book.
    Wishing you the best of luck with the amazing collection you have put together of your own books! Hugs.


  6. Thank you for sharing this Teagan! You’ve brought me so many laughs and smiles with your lovely words. I hope that from now on you have only joy so you can put the bad behind you. Know that we love you though, and will always be right with you on this trip. HUGS! ❤


    1. Hi Janet. Thank you so very much. When i saw your wonderful hummingbirds, i knew you’d be a gem, but it has been a true delight to get acquainted with you. Wishing the very same to you, my friend. Merry Christmas and happy 2015!


  7. Applesauce… I’ll sure try with the Guitar Mancer and with Atonement in Bloom. I’m just so bad about being preoccupied with my paying job that it gets me completely blocked — when i actually have a day to write. Hoping for progress over Christmas. I’ll be taking a few days off.
    Huge holiday hugs to you Sally. ❤
