As book lovers and avid readers, we ask – What’s better than a good book? A good book paired with the perfect glass of wine, and favourite chocolate deliciousness of course. However, we also know that all books are best consumed with cheese, but we are leaving that for another day.

We caught another author with the promise of a choccie fish!

Kia ora,

Please welcome our latest victim guest, V. L. Dreyer On the metal plate suspended above that puddle by wires is a chocolate fish. Behave and the delicious pink marshmallow fish covered in chocolate won’t end up a goopy mess on the floor.

In the event of an earthquake/zombie plague/or random occupation – you’ll find emergency procedures taped to the bottom of your seat. Yes, just like a flotation device. You’ll also find a Glock 17 with a full magazine.

Helping us help you

Good morning authors and readers,

Hope you’re enjoying this rather beautiful crisp winter weather. It’s much easier to cope with winter when it isn’t raining and blowing a gale!

Now to the point of this blog post …

We do have a request, instead of buying a coffee today (or tomorrow) would you please donate that money to our give-a-little page and help us keep our doors open? Seriously every dollar will help.

Here’s the link: Writers Plot Give a Little

We truly appreciate your help.
And would very much like to continue providing support for Kiwi authors.
