Free ebook

Are We Nearly Famous? is a free ebook, written by me and three of my writing friends. It contains a short story, some information about how we got started as writers and where we're going, and a sample chapter from each of us.

This collection of short stories is about journeys; literal, metaphorical and literary. Those both of the characters and the authors.

Ailsa travels to Scotland and begins the journey of recovery after life-saving surgery. The Smith family take two trips in one, and their reactions to each bring them closer as a family. Esperanza doesn’t just switch locations but swaps one life for another, each change taking her away from everything she knows and ever closer to the independence she needs to be truly happy.

In Italy, Pedro learns about the cycle of life, death and rebirth. Lisa’s journey also begin with a death, which leads her on a search for the truth about her own life.

Marty, just like her creator, moves to the Island of La Palma and takes strides forward in both her career and love life. Although Saffy and Jess both remain in the United Kingdom, their own emotional journeys are similar in several ways. They each want to make a difference with their work, and meet men who share this passion and ignite their own.

Patsy, Rosemary, Sheila and Lynne are four friends who, although successful in specific writing fields, aren’t yet well known to the general reading public. Together we’re raising awareness of our work, and hope you’ll help us do the same by reading this free collection, telling others about it and leaving us a review. We’re not really asking ‘Are We Nearly Famous?’ as we know the answer!

You can download it for free here.

Not quite managed to download your book onto my Kindle reader on my Apple Mac yet, but thought it would be great to take up your offer of promoting my own book - 'Ta Khut' Written by K C Hogan Available on Amazon

Anyone who likes myth, and science, and a race to save the world, may like to have a look. Many Thanks

When John, a foundling child with a secret benefactor, becomes a brilliant PhD student who discovers the world is under threat no one will listen. Caught in a battle with Dr Franklyn, the twisted academic who wants to silence him, and struggling against the sense of abandonment revealed by the mystery of his beginnings, John is spiralling toward despair when gifted the truth of his past and the spiritual prophecy, which inextricably links to the catastrophic future revealed by his research. With time running out, John realizes he has no choice but to go forward, embarking on the journey his heritage has illuminated for him, determined to unravel the converging languages of mythology, religion and science, to find not only the answer to save the world from impending disaster, but also the mother, lost to him so very long ago.
