I don’t want to seem premature in suggesting that I have become one of Britain’s foremost writers of children’s books, but in my dreams, that’s exactly where I am. In reality the story is slightly less impressive, however I am delighted to announce my second children’s book is now available on Amazon, the link to which is below. I have in production two other books, “Nobby Brasso and the big bash birthday” which is the second “Nobby Brasso” book and “Sam and her fantastic space journey,” the writing of which was relatively stress free. However getting the illustrations and the formatting of the books done has made me prematurely grey.
There are a further seven or eight books which I have already written which are waiting to be finished, one can write quite a few as they are fairly short, but I have a very long way to go before I could even dream of matching Barbara Cartland, one of this countries, and the worlds, most prolific authors. In her lifetime she wrote some 723 books, mostly romantic fiction which was estimated by some sources to have resulted in two billion sales.
Yes indeed, I was a little premature with my dreams of dominating the best sellers list and in some ways I’m glad, for Barbara Cartland used to dress in a pink chiffon gown, with dyed pink hair and makeup which looked as if it had been applied with a spade, she would then plonk herself on the sofa and dictate to her secretary. I’m forced to think, if this is what one has to endure to become a top selling author I can give it a miss, and whilst there are certain looks I can pull off, a pink chiffon gown is not one of them, although from my previous stage career, I do have the ability to put makeup on with a spade.
