"International Author"

Ooh, two posts today – this one is even book-related! For the first time, I have seen myself described as an ‘international author’, on the Modern Women’s Fiction website. I was feeling a little down about the lack of publicity for Karma, and this made me smile. Thanks for that (and I, too, like the word ‘auhorship’)!

Why was I feeling down? Well, just read a fab (actually, I’ll go as far as saying fab-er-ooni) book by a lady called Rae Earl. It’s called ‘My Fat Mad Teenage Diary’. I couldn’t stop reading it (despite being in the bath and wrinkling like a Shar Pei) even though it brought back repressed memories of my school days! I’d looked up the book on the internet, as I knew Rae from another forum, and it has rave reviews/write-ups everywhere, and justifiably so. There are no shortage of stockists in both the real and the virtual world. Was I jealous? Hell, yes (didn’t I promise honesty on this blog?) I just wish I could do more to promote Karma, but I’ve come to realise that there’s a limit to what one person can do. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not admitting defeat, just stating what, to everyone else, was bloomin’ obvious! Anyway, I would recommend ‘My Fat Mad Teenage Diary’ to anyone who grew up in the 70s/80s and can face reminiscing about those times. Or to anyone who likes to read in the bath and doesn’t mind resembling a Shar Pei!

Speaking of uncomfortable memories of school, courtesy of Facebook, there’s a get-together of my former classmates at Christmas. Hope mine goes more successfully than Paige’s…
