‘Success for Quitters’ by Jodie Crook

I’m very proud of my fellow writer and friend, Jodie Crook, who has recently made available her short story GIRL RED. The  story was entered into a writing competition which I organised in Gibraltar a few years ago. Girl Red was chosen as the clear winner by Ruth Dugdall, an award-winning author of psychological thriller novels, and one of the judges of the competition. If you aren’t aware of Jodie’s work, she has also just recently published her new ebook Success for Quitters: 5 Mindset methods for Success (Hello CEO Book 1) available on Amazon. I have reviewed the e-book and give it a definite thumbs up.  I am also personally touched that Jodie mentioned me in her acknowledgements.
To discover more about Jodie and to feast your eyes on her excellent short story, visit her website. Well done Jodie, keep us all informed of your great work and I wish you many positive blessings and a successful writing career.

Exciting News and ‘Hello Waterstones’

I have so much to say to my friends and readers, but I’ve been so busy of late, please forgive me. It’s been a crazy month, but in a good way. Emotions have been high and low, and like anyone else I am affected by praise or otherwise. Let it not be said that life is dull.

I want to share this. I recently sat back to think that I can’t quite believe that I’ve spent nearly ten years wading  in the interesting fish pond that is called the writing world. At first, I swam cluelessly, and then with an increasingly hungry desire to push myself into deeper challenges.  Along the way I’ve met sharks and I’ve met angelfish. And of course I’ve learnt a great deal from both species.

But….. no matter how many books a writer does or doesn’t sell; no matter whether reviews are glorious or vilifying, no matter whether creativity flows, or is a well that has run dry – the sustaining thing is that a writer will always remember the way a story feels to an appreciative reader. And that is why we do it. (At least that’s why I do it). So we try our very best to reach out and to grab hold of your heart.

Now for the promo bit:

Girl Forgotten has been re-published. Please check it out. Buy it. Review it, or download it from Amazon. I will appreciate every bit of support on this venture.

Girl Forgotten at Waterstones

Girl Forgotten on Amazon Kindle

The three current titles have been re-published under the imprint Charlotte Greene and will be made available to an expanded distribution channel. All three titles will be available in the publisher’s autumn catalogue.

I want to sincerely thank John Morris of Charlotte Greene Publishing, for all his effort, attentive help and support, and of course, having faith in my work (as well as putting up with me!)

I leave you with love and this thought..
