Okay, so I’m posting about me. Why not? It’s my blog. I’ve got news to shout about. I retired planning to trek the world and things changed, for all of us. I was offered a contract for my debut novel in 21. Now my second novel, a standalone is sequel to Secrets, Shame, and a Shoebox is being launched WORLD WIDE! mybook.to/twentyon
YES. WORLD WIDE. GO FIGURE. AMAZING. A WHOLE NEW CAREER AT MY AGE! PLEASE DON’T WAIT. GO FOR IT AND SUBMIT YOUR WORK WHEN IT’S SHINY.
THE TWENTY-ONE-YEAR CONTRACT!
Blurb: Kathleen Gray—talented, a little wild, at times rebellious, but always popular—has a fun, easy life in rural Somerset, with a doting family.
Suddenly, they are gone, everything is changed, and she has only Uncle Jack. Try as he might, he cannot be father and mother to her—he has a business to run and his own life to manage.
Kathleen takes a chance and becomes Kate Westfield, fending for herself in London, with a new life built on her hopes and dreams and new friends. She could hardly have imagined that one of those friends has a shoebox full of answers.
Here is an an interview with my protagonist – Dorian Craddock
Dorian Craddock is a secondary character in The Twenty-One-Year Contract. She’s pure evil, but in my opinion, she shines out as one of those people you love to hate. I thought I’d push one of her buttons to get a response.
“Dorian, I think you owe an answer to our readers as to why you feel the need to be so mean to so many people.” I handed her the mic. And started typing furiously.
“I owe the readers an answer, do I? Seriously? Who do you think you are, pushing me about, asking me to tell the readers about my business? Really, I’m mean? Besides, you know full well Harriet and Kate got everything they deserved! It could have been so much worse.” She gave me one of those sly smiles. “Read the dialogue, read between the lines. You wrote it. I’m owed plenty, as you well know, and I’m going to get what I deserve.”
(Little does she know!)
I’m on a Blog tour starting 18th May with the lovely writers of the The Wild Rose Press. How great is that. Other authors supporting authors. Just as it should be.
If you loved Harriet in Secrets, Shame, and a Shoebox, trust me she is sure to pop up!
Thank you so much for sharing with your friends, colleagues, family and the dog down the road. 🙂
