  Recommends the Book Out of My Mind

January 21, 2021

I met Brian Campbell many years ago through Business Networking. I knew he wrote articles for magazines and helped other business owners with content for their websites, etc. What I never realised was what a multi-facetted mind Brian has! The picture on the front of the book says it all. And this book will have something for everyone, I’m sure. Off-the-wall-funny, spooky and adventurous, political comment and family points of view. To top it all, you can’t live in Winnipeg and NOT talk about the weather, and he does! My favourite story? “Legacy of the Master.” Beautifully told and very interesting, I loved it right to the end. Support local talent and support local businesses……order yours today!

Brian’s book held my interest.

October 11, 2020

Previously I had no interest in political satire-actually had no idea even what it was. Upon reading certain chapters in Brian’s book, I now understand and appreciate this concept of humour.

The chapters about how families’ live and navigate thru less than ideal circumstances-could feel close to home for some of us readers.

A section of Spooky Tales definitely an entertaining experience. Lovers of various Halloween themes will appreciate the darker shades of grey…..well written and easy to visualize the story.

As a writer myself I truly appreciate the time-consuming task of choosing the exact word or phrases needed to convey the author’s precise thoughts and meanings.

Well done Brian.

I do highly recommend purchasing and reading Brian’s unique and personal narrative. Feel the emotional input. Hear what your mind is thinking as you experience this joy of reading. Visualize different situations presented in Living the Adventure.

What would you do?

Respond or React —-you’ll understand the energy Brian presents for our reading pleasure.

Thanks Brian for the personal delivery.

I enjoyed the fiction parts the most – brief insights into bigger stories left to the imagination, like a short story is meant to do.
I call it a light read, but it leaves behind some food for thought.

This Time It’s Personal

I pulled the dagger out and unfolded the parchment. If you ever want to see the boy alive again, bring 6000 gold pieces to Fool’s Passage below Archer’s Bluff when the moon shines directly overhead tonight.  The dagger blade was sunk deep in my door before I realized I was swinging it.  It snapped as I tried to pull it back out, leaving a portion of the tip still buried in the wood.  I had to consciously force myself not to crumple the parchment in my other hand.  I opened the door, stormed inside, slamming the door behind me, and dropped into my chair, my eyes never leaving the words on the parchment.

Trouble Squared

“NO!” “Plleeeeeease!” “I said, no!” Why can’t people just take a hint? “But you must help,” Prince Reggie insisted. “I must? Actually, I’m pretty sure I mustn’t do anything of the kind.” There was no way I was taking on this suicide mission. I rather enjoyed living. “But it took my Princess,” Reggie begged. “You have to help me get her back.”

An Old Buck’s Tale

“Grandpa! Grandpa!”  The two fawns came tearing across the meadow.  Bambi looked up from munching dandelions and smiled.  He always enjoyed it when Didi brought the fawns over. Their energy invigorated him.  “Grandpa, tell us a story,” Daisy begged, as she skidded to a halt in front of him. “Yes.  A story,” her brother, Lucky, agreed, as he crashed into his sister, knocking them both into the remaining dandelions, crushing them. Ah well, he should stop snacking anyway. The other bucks were beginning to ask when his fawns were due.  “Hi Dad,” his daughter, Didi greeted, then asked. “Where’s Mom?” “Hi Didi.  Your mother is in the field at the other end of the glade, foraging some vegetables for dinner.  She could probably use and extra hoof.” “I’m on it, Dad.” Bambi watched his daughter glide towards the human farmer’s field, then turned and smiled at his grandfawns. “A story, is it?  What story would you like to hear?”

Witch Adventure Now

To tell the truth, I didn’t want this job, which was what I was attempting to explain to my potential client.  But, sometimes you have to take the lesser of two nasty problems.  I only hope I made the right choice. “I’m sorry sir, but I don’t think I can help you.” “But my children. The witch has them, and I dread to think what she may do, if someone doesn’t rescue them soon.  Even now, we may be too late.”   The man was pleading with me.  He looked desperate, and it was obvious that he dearly loved his children. But he was also poor, which was where the problem lay.  “I understand, sir. I really do. And I sympathize with you.  But my fee-”
