Letter W April A to Z Challenge #AtoZChallenge

Day 23 April A to Z Challenge my theme is characters from books I’ve read plus some audience participation.

Letter W for Sergeant Winston Windflower from A Twist Of Fortune by Mike Martin

A Twist Of Fortune by Mike Martin

A Twist Of Fortune by Mike Martin

A Twist Of Fortune is a piece of crime fiction set in and around Grand Bank Newfoundland, Canada. Sergeant Winston Windflower is a member of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. This is the fourth book about the sergeant. The book opens with Windflower’s girlfriend, Sheila, being taken away in handcuffs at a community protest about the closure of the local fish plant.
Winter is making itself know in this part of the world and Windflower and his small team must patrol and close the highways as necessary when the snowstorms blow through. During one storm there is car accident, Michael Ridgeway a local pharmacist is killed. After the storm has cleared and the car is recovered a second body is found, that of local outlaw biker Frankie Fallon. Post mortems produce evidence of opiate and narcotics abuse .
Windflower and his team find themselves working with other officers to solve a much wider drug ring. Meanwhile the Mayor has a fatal heart attack and the local community is shaken up once more.
This book is a leisurely stroll through some of Canada’s wild places, where no one can hide from the effects of crime. We get an insight into the communities and people who choose to live away from the bright lights of the cities.

For my audience participation I’m asking readers to create book titles using the letter W for the picture below.

A book title and cover picture can often make or break a book sale. Is a book cover eye-catching? Does the book title appeal to the reader?

Have fun creating book titles from my own pictures, you might even think about a genre they could fit.


Leave your answers in the comments below and I’ll choose my favourites.

  1. ‘Wear and Tear in Tyne and Wear, Why Aye’.
    Travel memoir ~ a Geordie native walks the whole of the county of Tyne and Wear in his favourite old trainers, and also explores the anomalies of the English language (Wear-Wear).

    I also toyed with the idea of ‘Ware and Tear’, ie, the same thing, but in Hertfordshire. Geddit!


  2. Hi Rosie – the Winston Windflower series sounds a great read .. and as you say tells us about Canada and some of its hidden secrets around the mystery of the story line.

    Fantastic titles you’re getting .. I was just going to say yuck! Cheers Hilary


  3. Thanks for the shout-out! I’m a bit behind in the A-to-Z Challenge myself (will be putting up a few extra posts tonight), but am having a lot of fun trying to do it for the first time! Enjoy the rest of the challenge 🙂


  4. Thank you so much, Rosie, for the wonderful mention. The recommendation here sounds great. Once I get a break, I’ll have to take a look. We are almost reaching the end of the challenge… almost there!
