Fontaine

Thanks to everyone who has supported Cloud..

The beautiful covers for my books are by former Authonomite, Iso Nuys. Big thanks to him, once again. Please note that both books have been to the Desk. No backings required.

I only back books I like and don't change my shelf very often. I give honest feedback.

My avatar is called 'The Billy Boys' and is by Jack Vettriano, one of my favourite artists.

Books I would recommend on here are on my shelf.,

Now living in Africa and at last have time to follow my favourite occupations, writing and reading (and walking on the beach).

    Thanks for letting me know. It'll be great to meet a couple of other authonomites, have a chin wag and promote your book! X

    Hello past and very recent supporters of The Black Dionysia, Yes, I've joined the ranks of users who accidentally deleted their books, in my case just as it was about to go from 9 to 4 on the ED! I've sent an email to the site administrators but I'm not very hopeful they'll resurrect my deleted book. In the meantime I've uploaded the first chapters of the book again and am asking people who've backed the old one at some ...

    Hi Fontaine

    Thank you for your kind thoughts - yes it was so sad to lose Elizabeth, but as a family we count ourselves so lucky to have had her love.
    If more people could meet the Sadies and Elizabeths of this world, I feel the world would be a better place.
    I wish Sadie well in all she does.

    I seem to have reached the age where following directions is not worth the effort. Have fun, guys, I'm off for a nap.

    Would you be able to post the poesy results on sunday night? I won't be here and Tonia isn't a member any more. You would ask her for the results (she checks my count) and all you'd have to do is say who was 3rd, 2nd and 1st as I do. And post the winner again, if you can. Don't worry if you can't, I will just do it on minday night when I get home. I will have to ...

    Hi Fontaine. Thank you very much for our comment on my book DEATH IN PROGRESS. I was particularly interested to hear that you felt it was 'rushed.' I know my writing is very fast moving and I have difficulty seeing how I can slow it down. When I have finished it I will go over it again and see what I can do. I have to say I often stop reading novels because they seem so slow and boring. My ...

    Thank you Fontaine, your kind words are more than enough to make me snap out of my tantrum!
    Another lesson learned the hard way! At least I have Mr Vettriano!

    Hi Fontaine, it's been a while but someone told me GUIDESTAR was at number 10 so I thought I'd better pull my finger out and get polishing! Thanks to you, I'm enjoying Mr Vettriano a great deal, he's everywhere now (alas only from my printer). Merry Christmas, if you support such things but most of all Have a great New Year! I'm hacking and culling but I suspect it will still be too long winded for some, I swear if ...

    Hi Fontaine! I was wondering if you'd consider giving my fantasy novel a glance?
    Thanks!
