In the Mood for Nostalgia? Free Right Now!

29 Jul

In the mood for nostalgia? Right now, and for the next 47 hours, ‘Romance, 50’s Style’ will be free to download on Amazon Kindle. Two sweet, Australian romances set in a bygone age…

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!

Veronica’s Review of ‘Love, Desire and Betrayal’

7 Oct

A big ‘Thank you’ to Veronica for her 5 star review of ‘Love, Desire and Betrayal’.

In part, she writes:

‘Margaret Lynette Sharp’s writing is poetic and descriptive. The stories realistically depicted the heady feeling of falling in love and how circumstances and distance can put a strain on  a relationship.’

This title is currently available on Amazon Kindle. I am hoping that, in the not too distant future, a paperback version will be issued.

I Really *Am* an Author…

8 Sep

I started writing my first book, ’25 Stories of Life and Love in Australia’, four years ago, next month. Naively, I thought it would be a one-off. 🙂

Eleven titles later, it’s still a nice feeling to be *reminded*, to have *concrete evidence*, that I *am* an author.

So, how proud I was when I visited Kogarah Library some months ago, to find my books on their shelves.

There, I knew it! I  really *am* an author. 🙂

Guess who?

Boomer lit: Here’s an Extract!

10 Jul

The wonderful members of the Goodreads Boomer Lit Group are having a blog hop this Friday, and I’ve been invited to participate!

With six collections of Australian Short Stories from which to choose, my only problem was to decide which story to feature.

After some deliberation, I’ve selected ‘Au Revoir’ from my third title, ‘The Essence of Life and Love in Australia’.

Here’s a snippet.

AU REVOIR

My dear Pierre,

Surprised isn’t a strong enough word to describe my feelings when I first heard from you. So much has happened in the last forty-two years that I now look back on my young life as almost ethereal. Please don’t read into this any dismissal of my feelings towards you, but rather as an acknowledgement that, to me, it seems so very far away.

Glad to hear that you’ve had an interesting, fulfilling life, and that your late, darling wife brought you much happiness, though as you say, you never knew the patter of little feet. My daughter, Briony, proved a source of much pleasure, but occasional heartbreak, as Henry and i watched her grow up. Now a mother of three herself, she is a great pillar of support, especially now, since Henry’s death.

Are you enjoying this? Then why not treat yourself to a copy of this book.
