What’s wrong with the publishing world?

Sunday, February 12th, 2017

Hi, been a while but I’m back. Life, as it does, has eaten up my time once again and the priorities I set for myself (such as writing this blog) have yet again slipped by without me realising it. As the title suggests I’m pretty much fed up with main stream publishing world. Why can’t they recognise talent when its staring them in the face? I can write. I actually write far better than many of the authors these houses are promoting and yet I can’t get a finger through the door, let alone a foot.

I read all the time (trying to better my skills as a writer) but nine out of ten times I simply cannot figure how these editors, publishers etc pass me over for the writers they are promoting. I’m now on my seventh and eighth manuscript. My stories are good, solid works, with characters that actually come across as real. So why can’t I even get an interview or at least an encouraging letter spelling out why I’m¬† constantly being overlooked for others whose works aren’t even half as creative as mine?

Anyway that’s my gripe for the day. Hopefully it won’t take me so long to get my fingers on the keyboard and blog some more.

 

Cheers everyone. Love my readers.


At Last I’m Back

Thursday, April 7th, 2016

Yes, I know its been a number of years since my readers have heard from me, but I’m sure you will understand that time waits for no writer.

My husband and I brought a farm. Yes, crazy I know. So my time has been taken up with raising mini goats, which are rather delightful creatures and I’m sure if any of you out there have ever had the pleasure of cuddling one you would understand.

However, I have not gone completely mad and have managed to get some writing done in between the goats and the many laborious hours spent getting this farm in order.

I’ve ¬†completed two novels since “The Immortals” series . First manuscript is entitled “She-Wolf” which is a stand alone novel. The blurb for this will be on the website shortly and hopefully available on eBook soon.

I have completed the first manuscript in a series I’ve entitled “Oracor, Gift of Dragons” first book entitled “Sorcerer’s Seduction”. Still editing, but hopefully by June this too will be available on eBook.

I’m really looking forward to hearing from anyone who would like a free copy of “She-Wolf”. At this stage it’s only available in PDF.
