Olga, just a gentle reminder that in the novelist group (as indicated at the top of the page) we don't post links to blog posts. We try to keep the wall for conversation, and if we allow any links to blog posts, they tend to swamp other conversation, so we just don't allow them. Thanks!

Thanks for the comment on my wall...so glad to meet a fellow late bloomer on She Writes!

Thanks Olga, my publisher did the design. Curiosity Quills Press.

Thank you Olga, though I have lived in Japan for years, I am just now wrapping my head around the very complex and layered culture. Makes for very interesting and challenging times, but always something to learn by and grow from.

Sounds like a plan! I am on good reads too, so any word you could spread there would be wonderful, and vice versa I'm sure.

Thanks so much Olga! I would be very interested in what you thought of my novel -- if you felt like it was something you would be able to review and spread the word on if you liked it, I would be able to give you an e-copy as a review copy? You can download the first four chapters here if you wanted to taste-test!


Just let me know!
Peace and happy writing!

Nice to know another Olga. There's not many of us around. I live in Sydney, Australia. Where are you?

At 8:51pm on January 10, 2013, Julie Luek said…

Olga-- It sounds like you have a lot going on with your writing. Thank you for the friend invite.

Hi Olga,

Thanks for the info (for some reason I can't approve your comment on She Writes, so am writing you here). My post will go up tomorrow with descriptions of what people are writing on, you'll also see the questions then. You'll send me answers to the questions and we'll link back to my blog--which I think is a very creative way to get around you not having a blog yet! I'd like to post your responses on Nov 27, so that will give you plenty of time. Thanks again for saying yes! More soon...

At 6:55am on November 18, 2012, Michele Tracy Berger said…

Also, I'd need that info by this coming Tuesday (just what day the post will go up and description)



What am I reading

At the moment, I'm gorging myself on Jayne Ann Krentz. I'm also re-reading Georgette Heyer. Love her.
