Well, I've created a new blog which I'll be using more than Iberian Bird. You can find me at suzyturner.blogspot.com
You can also find me on Twitter @2010suzy
Hope to see you there!
After finishing my novel, I now want as many people as possible to read it. I'm looking for constructive comments to help make it as best as it can possibly become. Which is why I have uploaded it to a great website called www.authonomy.com
Specifically for writers (and readers), the site allows authors to upload their novels and be read by anyone keen enough. Those registered on the site can then 'back' the books that they like the most. This leads to publishers Harper Collins picking the top five books every month and reading them - which could potentially lead to a publishing deal. That's the hope anyway!
If you would like to have a look at my book, entitled Raven, visit the site www.authonomy.com and search for me, Iberian Bird.
I'd love to hear your comments.
Well... it's been quite some time since I last posted anything here on Iberian Bird.
I have, in fact, been quite busy.
Not, as you might imagine from reading my last post, working alongside my husband (although I have assisted on occasion), but writing a novel.
Although hard work, I am thoroughly enjoying the process.
The book is aimed at teens and young adults and centres around a girl, Lilly, who discovers her whole life has been based on lies.
The woman she thought was her mother turns out to be a witch who kidnapped her and her father shortly after she was born.
When her father and her 'mother' mysteriously vanish from their London home, Lilly must move to Canada to meet the family she never knew existed. But that isn't all she didn't know. She soon discovers that her family has an amazing secret.
But that's all I'm telling you for now!
Bye for now
So it's true then.
Being made redundant stinks.
However, as one door closes another one opens and so I am going to join my husband's business. We have been talking about it for a while but we now have the perfect opportunity to expand it to include property management. So that's what I'll be doing from now on.
It's great that I can now work for myself so, although I had a massive shock last week when I was told the news, I am now, in fact, rather a happy chappy (or chapesse)!
I hold no grudges as I fully understand why the move was made. In the current economic climate, business is tough for everybody and publishing, I think, has been hit hard. I wish the group all the success in the future.
