Publicity Ideas

Have been wondering about drumming up some publicity for my upcoming Young Adult novel, Abernethy - it's not back from print yet, and I want to check with the graphic artist if he's okay with me…Continue

Profile Information

Something About Me and My Book:
I write light satire, and the novel I'm plugging is called 'Calumny while reading Irvine Welsh' by Simone Bailey. The same day Martha borrows a copy of 'Trainspotting' by Irvine Welsh, she is stricken by a bout of 'escalator rage' when she sees an elderly woman standing on the wrong side. She storms past, and the old woman falls to her death. The old woman turns out to be the mother of a popular politician, and there just happens to be an election looming. Martha has to deal with the fallout comprising of unwanted media attention, public speculation, and the effect this will have on her dysfunctional family (her silent mother, taciturn father, chronically stoned sister, and an irritating younger brother). Did Martha actually cause the old woman's death? How will she deal with going to court? Will Martha get her life back and finish reading 'Trainspotting'?

I've also just launched 'Abernethy', whch can best be described as 'coming of age meets the superantural.' The protagonist, 14 yaer old Billy, he meets a talking dog (although the dog only speaks to him) whilst he has to deal with his father's upcoming court appeal, and bullying, and his mother's suspected affair. My books are available through Zeus Publications, httpY;//

Today's Little Ramblings

It's Friday night here in the land of Oz. My two sons are messing about in the loungeroom with the young lad who is having a sleepover, and I am pondering the imminent signing of the contract for my next book, 'Silver Studs & Sabre Teeth' - the title is a homage to the song 'Megal Guru' by T-Rex. One of my secondary characters is a Marc Bolan impersonator. Who, like me, is of the view that we need more Marc Bolan impesonators in fine literature? Who cares about boy wizards and vampires?…

Today's Vagaries

I haven't been doing as much writing as I would like lately because I have to attain a qualification to enable me to continue working as a carer.  Yes, I am an author, but like most Australian authors can't make a full time living from it.  I work part time as a community carer, and my employer is training me in the appropriate qualification.  Don't know what you call it in the US, but in Oz it's a Certificate III in Aged & Communitiy Care.  Some of the old people whom I assist with…

Sales Opportunities, And Something From The Eighties That Actually Didn't Suck

It is my long held belief that the Eighties were the worst decade ever.  Really, puffball skirts (pfffft!), androgynes who sang crappy songs (yes, you, Boy George and Marilyn!), shoulder pads that made you resemble a grid iron player, ozone-depleting hair product, skinny leather ties (I remember my cousin received one as a favour from a girl he partnered in the local deb ball, and a jealous friend upon hearing of this just slavered, 'Yum!'), mullet hair (actually, I live in a town populated…

A Yucky Song I Heard Today

In Australia we haven't exercised the death penalty since 1967.  The Act itself was repealed, I think, in the early 1970s.  There are good reasons for not having the death penalty.  Of course, there is the heavy possibility that somebody INNOCENT may get executed.  There is the fact that it is not a deterrent, because most  murders are committed in the heat of the moment, ie, crimes of passion.  Well, I have found another one.  It just may inspire songs like 'Womens' Prison', performed by…

Hi Simone,
I hope the site is helpful. Ignore most of the side advertising and read the blogs. Also promote 'Calumny While Reading Irvien Welsh' as much as possible. It's one of the best Zeus books
