’25 Stories…’ and ‘A Taste..’: Both Kindle Best Sellers Ranked

1 Jul

Here’s an update: two  or three days in, both ’25 Stories of Life and Love in Australia’ and ‘A Taste of Life and Love in Australia’ are both to be found on the Amazon Kindle best sellers list!

Okay, they’re in the #170,000’s : but a start’s a start!

Maybe there’s a resurgence in the popularity of Short Stories and vignettes, particularly those with happy endings. With time at a premium, maybe reading a little and often, with satisfaction at each sitting, is the way of the future. I can only conjecture.

July is the month that Shelleyrae at Book’d out has  graciously listed ‘A Taste of Life and Love in Australia’ for review. Who knows the degree of interest this will engender?

As a newcomer to all this, I can’t draw on any previous experience. All I can do is hope: and cross my fingers!

’25 Stories of Life and Love in Australia’ now on Kindle

29 Jun

At last, we’ve caught up with technology and published with Kindle!

My first book, 25 Stories of Life and Love in Australia’: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B008FP217C: is now available.

There’s a diverse range of stories and vignettes, such as ‘Family Values’ ( a tale about a family visiting their folks in the country); ‘New Digs’ (about an elderly lady changing her address); ‘Fresh Pickings’ ( a tale of young love and expectations); ‘The Virgin Dancer’ ( discovering dancing in middle age) and ‘A Question of Trust’ ( a new relationship in trouble).

Many readers have told me that they liked it very much, and some have purchased extra copies as gifts.

If you like Short Stories, particularly those written by Australian women writers, then I suggest you investigate this volume.
