FREE BOOK: Light Bites 

 

Take a pinch of humour, a touch of light-heartedness and a drop of whimsy and you have the perfect recipe to be savoured any time, anywhere. Light Bites – a collection of satisfying and uplifting tales.

 

 

 

‘The author writes so well, in such a ‘real’ way that I found myself immersed in each tale.’

‘Her characters are easy to relate to and there is lots of humour that keeps you entertained.’

‘I thoroughly enjoyed every story and would definitely recommend it.’

‘There is certainly something for everyone here.’

‘A very good read.’

‘Utterly delicious’

‘Dahl-esque delight – ridiculously funny, yet intelligent. Weird and wonderful characters – a chocolate box of surprises.’

‘When you read a collection of short stories and come away thinking “I wish each of those was a book in its own right” then you know the writing is good. Ms Laycock makes the absurd seem real. In one of the stories, Harry Potter could have waltzed straight in. Written with a light touch and a dry sense of humour. I loved it.’

‘If you like your stories short, wickedly funny, more than a little twisted and unexpectedly sentimental in places – then this is definitely for you.’

‘Perfect length for a work break or with coffee and biscuits, care needed to not laugh out loud or choke!’

‘The true-life tale of Yiscah (formerly Jeffrey) Smith may serve as the inspiration for UK author Helen Laycock’s knock-about comedy, ‘Occupational Therapy’, a tale from her short story collection, ‘Light Bites’, in which fairy Lily Blue becomes a goblin and lives happily ever after.’

‘This mirthful collection of a dozen cheery tales makes clear that she revels in her present work and causes me to wonder how much her school students must miss her — even now.’

‘I would recommend this collection to anyone who is looking for some “Light Bites” to entertain them.’
