ZIPPED!

Wow!  At last, the naughty but nice novel ZIPPED! is now available on pre order at Amazon Kindle!  Be warned, it’s an adult novel, there is drinking, swearing and sexual innuendo but it’s also a hilarious romp.

Easter Lilley is a florist without a job; she is also a horse owner, an employer, a detective agency principal and a detective by default, which is not surprising as she inherited all of this from her lying ex husband in the dodgiest divorce settlement in the country if the lawyers bills were any indication. Due to his illegal activities and her own stupidity by inadvertently allowing him to strip her of all her assets, she is forced to keep the detective agency functioning along with her odd-ball employees – including the mysterious Dash with his buffed body and law enforcement connections, the amazingly hot Jenni-Mae whose CV contains only a photo of herself in a stunning electric blue swimsuit with a phone number, and the techno geek Edward Pontifax III, who appears to work for ASIO, although he may not – all the while wondering why she hasn’t torched the joint, collected the insurance and bolted for a tropical island with her dog, the gorgeously scruffy Poppy!

Today’s lesson.  Life’s tough, even tougher to achieve goals that seem so far away but each step, each day, is another step closer to achieving them.

Quality writing

18c8d86650feb1d80a8b5023dae59cf5--henri-matisse-art-quotes

I had a fabulous chat yesterday with a keen young agent who said that there were many quality writers in the self published arena which is correct I think.  However ot hear her say this is a complete turnaround in terms of the reputation of self published writers vs traditional publishers who always insist they only take on the most excellent but now there are many excellent writers who are not published by traditional publishers.

The fact is, writers want to write and publishers want to sell – they have to sell as it’s their business.  For many writers there is a complete disconnect between these two aims, especially in terms of genre writers who are never going to get enough local support for a traditional publisher to take the chance – or so it would seem.  However the self published arena now provides a global outlet for those writers who are good at their craft and are happy to take on the whole process of writing, publishing and selling.  As a result, the rep of self published authors is growing steadily as more take the plunge which is very cool.
