Blog Tour Review - Service Model by Adrian Tchaikovsky To fix the world they first must break it further. Humanity is a dying breed, utterly reliant on artificial labor and service. When a domesticated robot gets a nasty little idea downloaded into their core programming, they murder their owner. The robot then discovers they can also do something else they never did before: run away. After fleeing the household, they enter a wider world they never knew existed, where the age-old hierarchy of humans at the top is disintegrating, and a robot ecosystem devoted to human wellbeing is finding a new purpose.

Blog Tour - Grace-Ella Witch Camp

Blog Tour - Grace-Ella: Witch Camp by Sharon Marie Jones

Good morning,

Today I am joining in the blog tour for an absolutely charming new book, Grace-Ella: Witch Camp by Sharon Marie Jones.

This is the second Grace-Ella story, though it's the first I've read. Grace-Ella is a young girl who's found out that she's actually a witch, and in this story she goes off to witch camp to try and earn her Spells for Beginners certificate.

At camp she makes new friends, learns new magic and gets into all sorts of bother. The story has lovely messages there about the importance of helping people, supporting each other, and about self belief and confidence too.

It's lower middle grade, suitable for young readers, with lovely illustrations by Adrianna J Puglisi throughout.

As part of the blog tour, I'm really pleased to be able to bring you this extract from the book. On her first night at camp Grace-Ella is having trouble sleeping. Settling down with her copy of the Book of Rules, she finds the following story to read.

I'm giving Grace-Ella: Witch Camp four moons, it's a sweet, lovely little story.


Grace-Ella: Witch Camp is written by Sharon Marie Jones and illustrated by Adriana J Puglisi. It is available now, published by Firefly, and is recommended for ages 7-9.

I was given a copy in return for an honest review and participation in this blog tour.
