From the caterpillar a butterfly was born

Life is about learning and giving. I am thankful for mine.

Natalie Lives

“I have not left, I am in another room …. “

Natalie was withdrawn from sale for a major rewrite, and has now emerged in a stunning new outfit, bigger, stronger, more sassy. New characters have been added, some of whom are to feature in the follow-up – oh yes, there’s lots more to tell – and new scenes have been added. Natalie herself has become more confident … she will need to be.

The new book is called ‘Natalie Tereshchenko – Lady In Waiting’ and has been released as an ebook on Kindle and Smashwords, and as a paperback on Amazon (see my homepage for links).

Setting the Literary World Alight

Setting the Literary World Alight … or not, as the case may be

How do unknown authors get themselves noticed?

I’ve tried taking off all my clothes and standing outside the local library. Apart from several pidgeons, no-one took any notice, and I had to wait two weeks for a man from the council to come and wash off the poo.

Someone suggested putting an advert in Facebook. I tried that, too. Lots of clicks, no sales, and my friends list has dropped below a thousand.

Book signings, that could be an idea. But bookshops are only interested if they can sell your book, and they don’t buy off Amazon.

So, I watch my sales figures creep slowly towards double figures, and hope that one of them is someone who has the power to launch me into stardom.

Not holding my breath.
