The Swallows have Returned

6 May

For the first time in months, this morning I saw Welcome Swallows in the park. A group of four or five perched together on the top of the shark-proof net that surrounds2013_0921imagefacebook0037 the baths. By swimming backstroke I was able to see them quite closely. They are such sweet little birds, building their nests high in the dressing sheds.

A Couple of Announcements

16 Mar

To all my loyal blog readers…

I’ve been writing eBooks (and tree books) now for six and a half years. It’s been a journey of hopes fulfilled, and hopes dashed. I’ve known both brickbats and bouquets from reviewers. I’ve known the joy of a writing a best seller – ‘Longbourn Revisited’.  I’ve known the sadness of publishing more than one title that’s been loved by most reviewers, yet overlooked almost entirely by the book-buying public. ‘Uncertain Love’ and ‘Charlotte’s Lance and the Round Fable’ spring to mind in the latter category.

Enough of that.

The time has come for me to have a break – perhaps forever – from writing.It’s so long since I touched the piano that I’ve all but forgotten how to play. Ditto for painting in watercolours – something I used to love.

So, what’s left?

I have twenty-five titles out there, all available on Amazon. Within hours, both ‘Romance, 50’s Style’ and ‘More Romance, 50’s Style’ will be US99c and US99p Countdown deals. For those who enjoy clean, nostalgic romances, these are well worth a look, especially at this price.

Here are the links.

Enjoy!

A uniquely Australian anthology of short stories, visually, culturally and linguistically evocative of that country (and continent), the unsurprisingly named ‘Long and Short Australian Stories’ is incredibly readable and relatable, with the sort of easy-going narrative fluency that makes each story a thoroughly enchanting page-turner.

Though always from her perch on the Aussie shoreline, Sharp explores all the universal themes that define stories of romance and relationships: jealousy, ambition, empathy, love and self-actualization.

Backdrops include beaches, cottages and city apartments, the urban and the rural: a multifaceted scenic tour that enhances the feel of the various narratives… long and short. This is a book for fans of literary fiction and romance, but suitable also for a YA audience.

I’m so glad that these have become popular! In many of our local streets, these wonderful flowers are to be seen. Several well-advanced trees are growing in nearby nature strips. And don’t the Rainbow Lorikeets love them!
