Pay It Forward: Callum McLaughlin

Pay It Forward Fridays came from this post by Emily Guido. The idea is to feature a blogger or author on Fridays and give them a little shoutout. Anyone goes as long as they’re interested.

I’ve received an incredible amount of support from bloggers, authors and people I’ve met on line who didn’t know me and were just very kind, supportive souls. And, when I read that post by Emily Guido, I thought: time to give back.

I loved this quote from Emily’s mother:

“I cast a couple of pieces of bread on the water and the waves bring me back a ham sandwich.”

Karma is a beautiful thing.

Today I’m focusing on Callum McLaughlin.7400503

He says of himself: “Born and raised in the Scottish countryside, Callum McLaughlin works as a freelance content writer and in November 2013, published his first book, The Vessel. His next release came in October 2014 with False Awakening.

Outside of fiction, he is a keen poet and released his first collection in 2015.

A lover of all things literature, music and nature, he takes his biggest inspiration from the world around us.”

His influences are: “Thomas Hardy, JK Rowling, Henry James.”

A very talented author, Callum has already published two books.

the-vessel-ebook-ad-versionThe Vessel is a suspense thriller and Callum’s first book. Here’s the blurb:

“The story follows nineteen year old Eva Cole as she struggles to expose the truth in a world equally as ravaged by famine and disease as it is ruled by corrupt government. With extreme measures being taken to try and save the dying population and innocent people becoming embroiled in secrets and lies, she could be the only chance the people have to obtain justice.”
