So You Have Finished Writing Your Book

So You Have Finished Writing Your Book

So you have finished your book. Wheee!! Break out the champagne. You deserve it. But now you have sobered up, what do you do now? Well, the first thing is to put it away and forget about it, at least for a fortnight. Go on, forget all about it. Weed the garden. Tidy your desk. Write a few short stories. Then get it out again. The next thing you need to do is read it through, as critically as possible. Read it out loud, that is the best thing (stock up on the throat sweets). Make more...

The Social Author

So you have written your novels and they sit waiting to be grabbed off of Amazon or one of the other Internet Book Stores and there they sit waiting and waiting. The problem with Amazon or anywhere else is they have millions of books, sadly they have thousands of books written by authors just like you that are free, free books are great, a lot of them are well written but the problem is, if readers are reading a free book then they are not reading yours and there is not much you can do about

Doing the Write Thing for your Kids

Doing the Write Thing for your Kids

My son, James, is now 21. He is no angel, he is not perfect, but he is mine! There have been times over the years when I could have happily strangled him and other times when he has made me feel very proud. What he is, is a very articulate, well-spoken young man who has been able to hold complicated conversations with people from an early age. I think that my mother got it right when she told me, years ago, that being a parent is the only job in the world for which there is no training...

“...forget the cafe latte, screw the raspberry iced tea, a Malibu and Coke for you, a Gin and Tonic for me...” Callie slowly opened one eye, reaching up to rub away the crusty rheum. That one eye, now free of the sleep crusties, tried to focus on her iPhone alarm. It took a few seconds. She squinted at it but then ducked her head back down, as she caught a flash of a large white object, aimed at her face. “Hey!” “Shut of that fraking music, will ya?” “Settle down, Karen. It's time to get up”

Misery loves company: why Stephen King remains Hollywood's favorite author

22 June 2017 | 6:00 am Books | The Guardian

It’s a particularly fruitful year for the bestselling author, with big and small screen adaptations on the way – but what makes his work so consistently popular?To say that Stephen King is “back” would be an absurd statement. The man never really goes anywhere, permanently inhabiting his sliver of the spotlight with a steady stream of novels, short story collections, loose magazine pieces, and less formally, his alternately bemused and biting tweets. King topped the New...

‘I can’t write something relentlessly awful – I’m not robust enough,’ Australian author says of gripping, grim second novel shot through with warmth and humourAnna Spargo-Ryan’s debut novel, The Paper House, was an honest look at mental illness and grief – but it came at a cost. “[The book] was about a nervous breakdown and, when I finished writing it, I essentially had a nervous breakdown,” she says. In the Australian writer’s second...

French Saviour
by Jackie from Australia

It was in the centre of Paris that I was run over. Our ever-faithful bicycles were used to the maximum around the city. It was rush hour, and the reputation the Parisians have of being the worst drivers in the world was justified. Admittedly, we were on the pavement, studiously avoiding the square-hatted policemen who had told me off earlier that day for riding on the path.
We were sitting at the lights, and when pedestrians were shown the green light, off I sped. A lady in a small car hurtled around the corner through the red light, we collided. Actually, I pushed myself off the car, only knowing too well that I could be sucked under. All eight lanes of traffic came to a halt; Paris came to a standstill. The lady in the car was distraught; I was shocked.
Without really knowing what happened, a tall, handsome man picked me up and almost carried me to the pavement, while crooning, ‘Madam, you are ok, non? You are not hurt, non? Madam, you fell like a ballerina, like poetry. I am so sorry. You come all this way to our country to visit and this is what we do to you? I am so sorry, madam. What can we do to make it better?’
My knees were weak, not from the accident but from the smooth, poetic voice that caressed my ears. As I stared up into the beautiful, dark face of my saviour, letting him lead me to wherever he wanted to go, I felt a sharp pain in my ribs.
The magic of the moment was shattered with a, ‘She’ll be right, mate,’ from the unmistakable Aussie twang from my husband as he elbowed his way between my rescuer and me.
Reluctantly, the man let me go. As I thanked him, my heart sank as he disappeared. I think I loved him for a short time, if not him, then certainly the romance of the situation. In true Aussie form, Noel handed me my bike and said, ‘Come on, let’s go!’ And off we went. I was somewhat shaky, but smiling.
