Just finished my second book in Greek, looking forward to publishing it.

Book sold.

If anyone's interested in hiring me, please, let me know.

Thank you.

Good question.

I'd been calling myself a writer long before I got a traditionally published deal.

Price lowered to $1200.

That's as low as it will ever get, so grab it while you can.

Price lowered to $1400.

Two cups of coffee, some reminiscing and B.B. King's blues usually do the trick.

I was writing stories in primary school and having them published in the school magazine. I continued to write stories for my friends in high school. I have several university degrees, including a Masters in Education, and I'm an English teacher, so I'd better darn well know how to write :D

You never stop learning.

Indeed, you never stop learning.

There are always ways to improve. I'm not so sure about courses and seminars. I'd rather read some established authors. I believe I have more to learn from them than attend a seminar.

Erotic thriller springs to mind.

No worries Becca, if anything, I should apologize for messing this up. Sorry.

I've added a substantial number of samples for potential clients.

Just wanted to announce that the book is still available.

I've also added a 7,000-word sample.

Paperbacks are amazingly convenient, not to mention the feeling I get when I pick one up.

It just feels right. No internet, no excessive light emanating from a tablet/computer screen, no swiping, nothing. Just me and the pages.

KenWard, I get that a lot, too.

My explanation? As the brain tends to relax, it produces ideas that it wouldn't normally produce due to stress.

I always keep pen and paper handy. Otherwise, I will forget those brainwaves.

Off to write a political romance novella.

It's not my cup of tea, but it's still writing.

This is a one-off deal and I don't have another client at the moment. So, if you think we'll be a good fit, please, let me know. ;)

I respect that, but the vast majority of readers don't.

Anyway, I'm prepared to lower the price if people think it's too high.

Hello everybody :)

A while back, an old client of mine came back and asked me to write a 60k mafia romance novel. Knowing that he'd put the contract together quickly, I started working on the book.
However, two days later, he said that he didn't want the book anymore because of a family emergency.

I must point out that no contract was signed, and the plot is entirely mine.

Eventually, I finished the book.

Dual POV, plenty of action, steamy scenes and of course, HEA. No cliffhangers. I know how much readers hate them :)

Price: $1200 (+ Free Blurb)

Please pm me for details.

Kindly check the sample, and let me know if you're interested.


Sample Removed - Book Sold

Thanks and happy bidding!

 Massive paranormal fan here. :D

I'm glad to say that I've discovered quite a few, wolf shifter writers. Patricia Briggs is just phenomenal. Great world-building, strong characters and page-turning plots.

Sadly, I can't say the same about bear shifter writers. Somehow, I think I've stumbled upon average or bad writers.

Mostly 3-3,500 a day.

Sometimes, even getting to the 3k mark is very hard.

Amazon is notorious for treating authors like dirt. I think in time you won't regret that decision.

Good luck with the other platforms.

A rather tough choice, but it will have to be this:

1. Scorpions
2. Bon Jovi
3. Whitesnake
4. Eric Clapton
5. B.B. King

Offers are still not good enough.

The book is still available.

Had a few offers, but couldn't agree on the price.

Writers' Cafe / Important Update

A while ago, an old client of mine came back (after 2 years) and asked me to write a mafia romance novel. Knowing that he would put the contract together pretty fast, I started working on the book, but, two days later, he emailed me to say that he no longer wanted it, because he had a family crisis.

I never sent him anything from that book, neither did we ever sign a contract. Since I liked the idea of writing about something I'd never written before, I went on to finish the book. It's 60,000 words, dual POV and of course, HEA.

Plot, samples and pricing will be provided per request.

Thank you

Update: Sold
