Well Done, Amazon!

10 Oct

From first publishing my fourth collection of modern Australian Short Stories on 22nd September, until now, spans less than three weeks. Yet, amazingly, within this time-frame, Amazon.com has made up its very own web-page, complete with extensive previews!

Yes, readers, you can call up ‘Reflections of Life and Love in Australia’, and, a few clicks later, (hopefully) whet your appetite for the entire book!

If you like romantic, easy to read fiction, interspersed with engaging human interest tales, why not take the plunge and sample this collection?

A Day of Happy Surprises

26 Sep

What a pleasant day it’s been!

My first surprise came in the shape of a most encouraging comment from one of you, about my article ‘What Makes a Collector?’

Next came the extraordinarily rapid appearance of my latest collection of Short Stories, ‘Reflections of Life and Love in Australia’, on the Amazon site.  I typed in my name, clicked onto ’25 Stories of Life and Love in Australia’, and there it was: a miniature of my newest book, which was produced in collaboration with my husband Ronald Sharp B.E.M.;  and a link to its web-page!  Wow!

The final surprise came in the form of an unexpectedly sunny, mild day.  After a rather gloomy weekend, weather-wise, it was a treat to get out for a walk, and smell the Spring flowers.

What will tomorrow bring?

About ‘Life and Love’

16 Aug

‘Life and Love’ is the common thread of titles and themes in my series of modern Australian Short Stories.

By ‘Life’, I mean human interest stories; tales that shed light on human nature, and document scenes and situations that people may find themselves in, without necessarily involving romance. My first book ,’25 Stories of Life and Love in Australia’, contains several of these, as does my fourth.

My ‘Love’ stories are, of course, romances. Mostly, they end happily, though, as in real life, sometimes they don’t; therefore, the outcomes aren’t totally predictable. The final stories of each volume are linked by characters to the first, and often resolve the unhappiness of a lover.

Many people have told me that they liked ’25 Stories of Life and Love in Australia’, but sadly few have had the time to publish this comment.

The ‘Amazon.com’ site features ‘Click here’, so that you can read at least the first story in each book.
