Book Review - Author vs Character

Posted January 21, 2013 at 12:24 AM by Ann

Author vs Character by Lazette Gifford

This is a very funny book. The author is writing the 5th chapter of his novel when the Character suddenly starts talking back giving his suggestions as to how the story might go.

I read it out loud to my husband who also found it very entertaining.

A definite must read.

The book is free from smashwords.com

I would be interested in your opinions of the book.

The last few days....

Posted January 17, 2010 at 10:30 AM by Ann

I don't post in my blog or indeed on any social pages such as facebook other than the odd comment here and there.

I feel that given the events of the last few days that I need to vent my frustrations on things that have not gone well.
