The Dust of the Red Rose Knight by James Bennett ~ A dyslexia friendly read!
Thank you Love Book Tours for the chance to read and review The Dust of the Red Rose Knight by James Bennet! This book tour is a great chance to help promote some dyslexia friendly fiction for adults by BOTH Press!
Dyslexic friendly fiction for adults by BOTH Press
Following their successful “Open Dyslexia” Kickstarter in 2021, which led to publishing eight dyslexic friendly fiction titles, BOTH Press is launched, on June 7th 2022, their second Kickstarter “Open Dyslexia: the sequel” with more high-profile authors than ever before, which is set to last 30 days and end on 4th of July 2022
The Kickstarter aims to publish eight more titles of high-quality fiction from bestselling authors: including household names such as Bernard Cornwell and Peter James. The line-up is full of many front-list authors such as Gareth Powell, J.M Alvey(aka Juliet Mckenna), Scott Oden, Snorri Krisjanason, and James Bennett.
What made me be a part of this tour?
I’ve already said this, but as a reader I really did want to offer my support to this campaign because even though over 117 million people have some form of dyslexia, there are very few, if any, dyslexia friendly books printed for adult readers!
What does dyslexia friendly mean?
Dyslexia friendly means that you use a wider spacing, have a cream background and use certain fonts like Helvetica, Arial, Comic Sans etc.
As you can see, dyslexia friendly styles are simple enough to incorporate, and make things better for all readers!
Review for The Dust of the Red Rose Knight by James Bennett
The other reason I signed up for this book tour is that BOTH Press has great taste in short fiction. I signed up for 3 tours and I regret not signing up for the full line up!
The Dust of the Red Rose Knight is also a perfect read for pride month, because the Red Knight, who is funny and brilliant, is also a complete horn-dog and ready to hook up with all the dudes pursuing him and also totally willing to turn himself into a chick to do that if he has to! As a character I just love him and the ending was all I could have wanted from that story! The whole thing was a blast and I am so surprised that I haven’t heard about this author or read this story before!
“Shit!” shrieked a goat as it galloped past them down the slope followed by a herd of sheep, all bleating and afeard.
I’m not going to tell you guys more about this because I’ve already given you too many spoilers! It’s a great story and I would 100% recommend it!
