Tag Archives: Writing my first Novel

My Mother is MISSING

I am pleased to share a brief surprise; more and more people are reading my book, and its Amazon rating has climbed up the charts. 

Last year, I gifted three copies to the local library, and my reward was a PLR payment (Public Lending Rate). Although not an enormous sum, I accepted this as a recognition of having produced an entertaining novel, and people were enjoying the story.

On completion of my writing course with the Open University (UK) I drafted this book as confirmation of my progress of the writers’ craft. This book took ten months to complete, writing in the evenings for three hours on and off. I had a lovely editor who kept my motivation on track, as I almost tore it up for burning.

Will I write another one? People tell me I should. 

If only they knew the determination and work involved? However, the enjoyment of writing is my best reward.
