Girlie and the War of the Wasps

The time has finally arrived to publish ‘Girlie and the War of the Wasps.’  A short story set in a cottage garden where insects live in villages and go about their daily life.  One day Wasps start kidnapping insects. Nobody knows why until the day a friend of Girlie the ladybug is taken.  Girlie follows and her adventure begins.

What will she find?  Who will she meet along the way?  Will she rescue her friend?  Below is an excerpt of the story.

The earth under her feet was dank and slimy, she’d not realised she was on the brink of a slope.  Girlie started to slide down, trying hard not to squeal. She lost her footing, ending up at the bottom of the hill covered in slimy mud. Back on her feet, she shook her body to no avail, the mud stuck fast. Sighing, she looked up and around. The yellow ball in the sky had disappeared. Putting up her antenna’s, she felt a buzz. Peering into the darkness, she saw what she thought was a cave of some kind, though being so young she didn’t really know.

Girlie found a hollow tree root. She was soon to discover she’d found the wasp’s hive.

Plaisted Publishing will be releasing this book on the 28th of April 2016.  I do hope you will all attend the up and coming event.  I will be setting this up shortly.  Thank you.
