Welcome to the book blog of writer and creative writing tutor, Diane Paul.

Thanks to the publishers and kind PR people who send me books and releases about their clients' books for review. Press releases and review copies of fiction and non-fiction are always welcome. (No sci-fi, fantasy or erotica please.)

Due to the barrage of requests from self-published authors for reviews, I'm unable to deal with them all, although I'm sometimes drawn to non-fiction for the subject matter. And because I love print books, the smell, the touch of the paper and the sight of the words, I don't have an electronic reader or review e-books.

E-mail to: bookblogforbookworms@keywordeditorial.com for the postal address.

Diving at Sharm El Sheikh

Whether you're a diver or you just want to know more about scuba diving, a new e-book written by diving instructor John Kean may interest you.

John is a former client of my editorial consultancy and I found his book, Lost Wife, Saw Barracuda both amusing and informative. In it, he explains how he came to make the transition from stockbroker in the UK rat race to a life in the sun of Sharm El Sheikh where he became a dive instructor.

The book begins with John's experience during the terrorist attack on the resort in 2005, when many people were killed or injured and his part in helping them when he was first to arrive on the scene. In addition to that, he's been chased by sharks, had a 737 airliner drop out of the sky into his dive site, broken four bones, been arrested three times and experienced an earthquake.

The book is full of tips and advice on diving and contains humorous and some serious anecdotes about his diving adventures, the sort of incidents that can happen on diving courses and the various people he's trained as diving instructors.

John's first book was a diving guide to the wreck SS Thistlegorm, which is mentioned in Lost Wife... He also writes articles for several diving magazines.

Lost Wife, Saw Barracuda: True Stories of a Sharm El Sheikh Scuba Diving Instructor is available in Kindle Edition and can be obtained from Amazon Media EU S.a r.l.
