Well I am now officially a published author ... not a particularly successfully published author but it is early days.

I've bugged all my friends and family to check out my book and a whole 6 of them have!! lol But now I have to say I'm a little stumped on where to progress from here and in the short amount of time I have being a busy mum of 4.

Do I put all my efforts into blogging and social networking, tweeting etc. or do I put my head down and work on my next titles to start building a brand?

I'm now on Amazon in many different countries but its hard watching your rating slide into oblivion because of lack of sales and no reviews.


How do you get someone to see your killer cover if no one knows it's there???

Well this is an exciting time! My first ebook in what I hope will be a long standing series of fiction and non-fiction ebooks about quirky and interesting tales in Australian History.

Shipwrecked: the Saving of Eva Carmichael has been a long time coming. In fact it was many years ago that my husband and I took our two older children for a driving holiday along the Great Ocean Road here in Victoria, Australia.

I had no idea exactly how rich in folklore the area was when it came to shipwrecks and I found the whole idea of people travelling for months on end in these vessels only to founder at the last possible moment both tragic and intriguing at the same time.

The story of two young people being the only survivors of one such wreck is both gloriously romantic as it is poignantly sad. To know that they lost all that was dear to them and be the only survivors to remember those lost must have been an incredible burden to bear. One that I don't think in our modern times we could ever possibly comprehend.

Subsequently this story has been floating around in my head ever since this holiday and I knew it was the perfect story to launch the series.

What do you think? Let me know whether you enjoyed this story or not and what you think the next book should be about? That would be fun!

Anyway ... not too long now. Almost time to get this website live and then to publish the book! Yay!

Happy reading everyone!
