Book reviews and an offer

1st May and first trip up into the mountains, Weisspriarch

One of my ideas on the other blog  is to offer to do book reviews for books people send me – eBooks I should think mostly.  Then I will review it here, add the review  to any Amazon site, such as .co.uk and .com and so maybe increase sales.

In the same breath, I want to offer to do critiques of anyone’s book, if they want an in-depth analysis. I’ve a first class honours in English and am an author (!!!!!!), have experience with analysing texts – my brother being the last victim but I’ve done others.  I wouldn’t be offering to get anything published as an agent I’m too far from the UK and US to be effective, but maybe could help people on their way.   I would need at least two chapters and a short synopsis to begin with. Again any such book would then get a review on the Amazons if already self published.  For this, I would have to make a fee but we could negotiate.

Any takers???????

PS forgot to say, contact me through comments!

Changing direction

The little house in Tyrol that started the dream

I’ve been wittering on about the new job and being at home and stuff, and trying to keep myself open to everything that God wants me to do, and things are happening -albeit slowly.  The most important is that voice that has been saying maybe its time to make some money out of all of this blogging and writing.  Since I’ve been doing book reviews, the readership has shot up, and this may be a way forward -such hardship, having to read books!   It seems I can also earn from adding advertising  for a certain well know international website as  well.  So why not, if it doesn’t work, well, it just doesnt work!  I’ve done a certain amount of proof reading and critiquing, so I could offer this for people.   My degree in English might finally have some use.  Trouble is, I will have to create a new Blog as this one can’t carry the advertising, I’ll keep you informed!

It was my dream when we saw the very first house in the Tyrol. To have a place where I could write and read and paint (painting’s a while off!), and have retreats for people. I still have my idea for Austrian riding holidays, which could be do-able.  I just need God to give us some of his money to buy the flat next door or the one upstairs to make it into a B&B or Guesthouse, then perfect!   Then the therapy work wouldnt need to be such a bread winner for me, and maybe I’d then be able to have a dog, or a horse…………..
