I'm Me, Darn it! [Jan. 1st, 2013|05:17 pm]
sallyodgers
I have been trying to get rid of yet another comment from an older LJ post. I don't know why some people persist in making comments that have nothing whatsoever to do with my posts. Once again LJ won't let me delete the comment "because only the author or the owner may..." I'm the owner! I'm posting here, aren't I? LJ has my picture and my name up...
Grrrr.
So as not to waste this post - please, if you have nothing relevant to say, do not comment.

Deborah De Williams [Nov. 8th, 2008|11:27 pm]

Today Tess (our elderly Jack Russell) and I were lucky enough to meet Deborah de Williams and her border collie Maggie, who are running for charity. They are attempting a world record run around Australia with 365 days on the road, and raising awareness of the search for a cure for breast cancer along the way. Deb's artist husband drives the wonderful pink support van. I was especially interested because of the tie-in with my book WILDERNESS (Eternal Press - www.eternalpress.ca ) which is also about a cancer survivor running for charity. To support Deb and Maggie and their team, check out www.runningpink.com.au .

I found A Treasury of Flowers by Alice M Coats at the market last week. It's too wet to walk there today, so I've been vegetating with the computer, Tilly-Trump, Jeanie and a pear... and the book. It's charming, with a fine turn of phrase. I'm bidding on another one by the same author at eBay.

Under the Waterfall [Jul. 21st, 2008|12:26 am]

Hi all! My new book, UNDER THE WATERFALL, is available now from Devine Destinies at www.devinedestinies.com.
Someone is out to kill Corrie!
Stranded at a campsite with her brain-damaged brother, Ethan, Corrie swims under a waterfall. She finds herself in the land of Sisterin, where women rule and men are subservient. As a female, Corrie should be among the favoured ones, but in Sisterin she is a nullard, a person without a trade. Only one person is prepared to help her, and that's a boy named Athen. He seems strangely familiar.
Dealing with a self-sufficient and healthy version of her brother Ethan is bad enough, but Corrie soon finds herself if deadly danger.

Under the Waterfall is available for download from www.devinedestinies.com for (US)$5.99.
If you buy a copy in the month of July, let me know and I'll send you a free copy of my century-hopping love story, "Replay".

Meanwhile... it's hot, and I have a lot of deadlines. Currently struggling with a third re-write on a project that should have been simple...

Happy New Year! [Jan. 1st, 2008|11:49 am]

My resolution is to try to keep on top of things this year. Last year things got away from me somewhat, but this year I hope to catch up and stay caught up.

I know from experience there is no point in resolving to be tidy or organised. With four jack russells, several thousand books and various strong-minded relatives it's not going to happen!

Happy New Year, everyone-

Sally
