The Wing-Friends and Other Books

In Blogger's slideshows images are greatly reduced, so lose much of their impact. And captions added to them in Picasa Albums vanish, so the images shown above are: the Milky Way, the Orion Nebula, Earth, Earth with New Zealand circled, New Zealand, Auckland & the Hauraki Gulf, Waiheke Island, some native NZ forest, a Fantail and chicks, various doves, etc.

(If you want to see the first ten images in their original size, they are in a posting made on the 24th of November 2011.)

My book The Wing-Friends is an imaginative tale of a small brave boy, a magical adventure, a magnificent Pegasus and the wonderful Kingdom of the Pegasi. It has been given very good reviews, and virtually every reader on Goodreads has so far awarded it five stars. It is available here. Some of my other writings are available as e-books, such as The Lower Deck, which is an over-the-top take on Waiheke happenings--sort of.

A multilingual teacher of language in India who recently read The Wing-Friends has written a glowing review of it on Google Plus , for which I am extremely grateful. It is a book I wrote many years ago, and it has always had a special place in my heart. I'm very glad she enjoyed it so much and found so much value in it. I hope others will too. This is what she said:

Hullo, Plussers! :-)
I am eager to share with you a precious treasure. Ever since I was a child I have been mesmerized by the beauty, power and dramatic grace of a Pegasus, and dreamed of riding on one, of soaring across the sky to a very special place. Well, last night my wish was granted, and it was soul-restoring.

A magical tale titled The Wing-Friends by our very own +Nobilangelo Ceramalus  transported me back to Innocence, to the magical land of Erendor. I was filled with enchantment and cried happy tears all through it. The beautiful home of the Pegasi imbued me with its serenity and helped resuscitate a part of myself that I had thought was smothered by the infinite weariness of the world. It has been a healing experience, one I want to share with everyone.

The author's reverence for language is reflected in every beautifully-crafted phrase. He has kindly allowed me to share with you a picture of the front and back covers of the book.

Thank you, dear sir, for this wonderful gift--"it goes to the heart and speaks words of truth." I am sure it will fill everyone who truly appreciates it "with an awful joy".
