GapYear_big

The second book in the Walden School Series

Samantha Holloway is one of the few teenagers who knows of Walden School and wants nothing to do with it, but Walden has ties with Cheswick Ladies Football Club and Sam wants everything to do with CLFC. Sam lives and breathes the game, and sometimes football is the only breath she has left in her. Coach Wiley knows that, which is why she pushes Sam to attend the Walden girls’ football trials. When originally Sam thought boarding at Walden would be a serious inconvenience on her personal freedom, Walden may just end up being the place that saves her from hopelessness.

Walden – The Prequel; A new ebook from Bella Bryce

large

Synopsis

Walden has been the school teenagers want to go to since 1660. Influence and the guarantee of success after the two-year programme hasn’t thwarted applications from pouring in, even some fifty years after corporal punishment has virtually disappeared from education. Not at Walden. With great privilege comes great responsibility and the prefects of Walden School are not elected based on popularity, but on their character, integrity and with the knowledge that they will carry out most of the discipline required of their peers. During the summer holiday, eight senior pupils return to learn what it means to lead the school – just as it has been led since 1660.   In this prequel to the series, you will meet the people with influence; some who are not so keen on the school and others who are not so amused at not having been made prefect.    Welcome to Walden.

The Protagonist – a new ebook by Bella Bryce

IMG_0742

The Protagonist:

Daisy Abbott is an author as eccentric as she is successful. She’s also used to a certain rhythm when it comes to her writing: she sits at her desk, the hero speaks, she writes. Book done. After all, that’s how she wrote thirty titles and she doesn’t expect anything to be different during the working of her thirty-first manuscript. Daisy is convinced the protagonist of her newest book isn’t speaking to her and when he appears in the flesh to challenge her, she is transported to his time and place to better understand things from his perspective. The question is, whose story is it?

Unfailing Love – a new Bella Bryce ebook

untitled

Love is a decision. It isn’t a fleeting emotion, and it stands firm when everything else is shaken. Brayden James has learned through raising his adopted daughter, Alice, that discipline is only part of what is required to establish stability. When a devastating incident causes Alice to see the reality of her prior circumstances, she is affirmed once again in her life at Waldorf. Brayden’s healing love is exactly what she needs, and his blossoming relationship with Anabelle Grayson mirrors that in its purest form. Brayden and Ana are now exploring the facets of their courtship between the deeply desired accountability system of domestic discipline and some rather amusing scenarios.

Gap Year

As a means to an end, a girl attends an extremely traditional school.

By Bella Bryce

The formal notice arrived on crisp ivory paper with the school’s crest displayed prominently at the top, as if it were making a grand entrance straight out of the envelope. Samantha frowned as she began to read.  ‘Report to the Prefects on grounds of suspicion for rule breaking??’

“Bullocks! What’ve I done – breathed wrong??”

Her outburst fell on deaf ears, and she sounded ridiculous shouting at a piece of paper. She read on for another line and then crumpled the letter. Sam could care less, because firstly, she wasn’t guilty, and secondly, if she was, it wasn’t her fault. Thirdly, she wasn’t going. She had sprints to run and dribbling to perfect before her first Langton football match. Centre forwards didn’t score goals with their eyes closed, they scored goals because they ran their arses off and practiced outside of practice. The whole reason she was on scholarship at Langton School was because of her talent on the football pitch, not because of her grades.

The Glass House – a new ebook by Bella Bryce

IMG_3499

Waldorf Manor is enchanting. Not just because of the formality of its residents and the privilege of wealth, but because it guards and protects a lifestyle some could easily mistake as traditional. It isn’t traditional to Brayden James, it’s very deliberate. Beyond the protective gates of Waldorf Manor and Barton-Court House are the lives of two men who believe formality and discipline are necessary strongholds in life. Some strongholds, however, can be crippling; especially when they prevent a man from pursuing love. Simultaneously, a thirty-year marriage is hanging by a thread and despite the shell of their lives being moulded by similar wealth and formality, their roots have come undone. The mother of the groom can’t let go of controlling everything around her, and her husband is finally faced with the consequences of his apathy. Either way, there is truth to be spoken, healing to come, love to be shown and plenty of discipline to be administered. (See below for sample extract)
