A big “Hello” to everyone inquisitive enough to visit my home page; it’s great to meet you. I hope you’ll stay long enough to visit my other pages on Short Stories, Art Work, Poetry, My Blog, and of course Tissue of Lies my first novel.

I intend to make this blog-site a mixture of articles, short stories and poetry. The articles will vary and will encompass life experiences, news items and interesting pieces I’ve re-blogged from other people. You’ll see from my posts that I have a wide interest range, so I hope you’ll join with me and follow me into my blogging adventure. Together, it could be a an enjoyable ride.

I’m not sure if I should plug my book here but what the heck, “nothing ventured, nothing gained” is what they say, so here goes.


This Kindle E-book is only available from Amazon.

This book is an enjoyable read. Keeps you engrossed till the end. I can not wait till your next book.

Fantastic book. Very gripping and original. Really enjoyed it. It’s a shame it isn’t out in paperback as I’d like to buy it for my mum to read. Well done Ms Parkes.

A thriller of a story enclosed in many tangled lies.
The author slowly weaves the lies, entangles her main characters within their threads and reveals the consequences and outcomes with a few twists to her plot.
I have already encouraged two more purchases to friends that l know will fully enjoy this story and would recommend this to anyone who has a fascination with the weight a lie could carry. An enjoyable read.

A well thought out story.
This is a really great story, with many twists and turns, the characters are good and the story flows along nicely, my only gripe knocking off a star for this reason is that towards the end the character Jeanette, all of a sudden became Jean, and it became frustrating, there are also a few repeated words within the book and a few silly mistakes e.g site instead of sight, I do not want to seem picky, and would not put anyone off reading the book because of this as it is a good read, it just needs a further proof read.

NB From the Author – Carole Parkes.
I have taken note of this helpful review and re-edited and re-published “TISSUE OF LIES”.

    Thanks for visiting and following! You may also enjoy, where I share, as you do here, verbal and visual artworks. I’m happy to discover your blog — love the colors in your art pieces and am moved by your words. Keep on creating!



  2. Sorry I’m a bit late getting back to you Susan; I’ve been away enjoying our long awaited sunshine. Thanks for your kind words and I do intend to keep on creating. I couldn’t find through google. I’d love to see your website.


  3. Please don’t be offended, I was just pointing out that I’m not the best person to judge if your blog will attract high traffic. There is plenty of professional advice here on help and from other bloggers. Keep in mind though that you should always show you’ve read something about the blogger before commenting on their posts. Telling me you’ve read all my books when I’ve only published one is not an honest approach. Don’t give up, just read more from the many helpful hints found on wordpress about blogging.

    Since I am only an amateur writer and that requires a great deal of time, I can only imagine the effort you have put into becoming a published author. Congratulations.

    thank you for reading my POETRY I was appreciate people’s time and attention.



  5. No problem. I consider myself to be an amateur too and I enjoy seeing how well other unknown writers progress. Every professional writer was once an amateur like us.

    Hi, Carole! I found you because you “liked” my post “Cookie Monster robbed a store this morning!” on I was so touched by your “Anniversary of the day we met 51 yrs. ago” post, I just had to write to you. In turn, looking through your blog made me want to follow. You’re a talented person, Carole, and your stories/posts are fun and interesting. Great website/blog!

    You have a very lively site. I like that you’ve incorporated so many different things–art, needlework, short stories, poetry. Thanks for recently following my blog. Hope you enjoy it. Looking forward to reading more here.


    • Thank you for the lovely comment about my site. Now you see why my husband calls me a butterfly; I’m forever flitting from one interest to another. However, I always finish a project before moving on, ha ha. I found your site interesting too and will definitely visit again soon. Have fun every day.

    Hi Carole! It seems we have a bit in common. I’ve dabbled with painting and needlepoint, although writing has always been what I enjoy most. I love your paintings by the way and Tissue of Lies sounds interesting.
