Hi Lindy,
I am a beginner writer, first few chapters down, I love that my characters are beginning to go off on their own tangents. I see we have a luv of all things Sci Fi, although I'm not a fan of the original Star Trek. Jack O'Neill is my favourite, although our earth bound NCIS's Jethro Gibbs runs a close second. DeMille's John Sutter really makes me chuckle. Any pointers for new writers please show me the way... cheers and good health Gaile (hmm or is that NCIS')

mmm, I thought it was about time I joined. I'm still trying to figure out how it all works. You know how useless I am at anything techno.

Hi Lindy,
Thanks for adding me. I came across this site by chance while searching for Marianne Delacourt's website. I LOVE this site!
I love the look of all your Books. You've been busy ... Cheers,Karen :))

Hi Lindy. My books are only available on line, as BeWrite only publish that way, being a small press. They are on Amazon etc., but if buying from Australia I suggest the best way is to purchase from The Book Depository in UK. They are really very good and postage is included, yet they are cheaper than Amazon. You can of course ask any bookshop to get them in, but that is expensive. Check out The book Depository,
or ask your library to purchase them! :-)
Hint: the City of Yarra has the three books, so you may ask your library to borrow them for you.

Proscrastination is my dearest friend! I wallow in it sometimes. Of course I do have a couple of demonic acquaintances, too: Envy and Spite!
They do my head in--! I've just about subdued Proscrastination, but Envy and
Spite do pester me occasionally, along with Writer's B--(but I don't like to think about that)¬
seriously, thanks! and welcome, friend!
I have a few real friends on here--not folks I've met, but people I really liked, I'm sure you're going to be one, Lindy! I can tell.

Thanks for that, Lindy - I'll try SinC-Oz.

Hi Lindy

Good to 'meet' you. I live near Upper Beaconsfield, so not too far away, but I have a daughter in Balnarring and other family at Mount Martha, who would be closer to you on the peninsula.

A friend gave me Scarlet Stiletto, first cut, and I really enjoyed it, so well done. As for Sisters in Crime - I've been to some award nights and I don't know how many times I've sat down to fill in a membership form, but I've never actually completed one - always interrupted and never got back to it (story of my life, really).

Maybe I'll treat myself to a membership for Christmas - I just have to remember.

Birds of a feather, hey. We need to start a Procrastinaters Anonymous Support Group for writers!

Hi Lindy!
of course Australia is the best country!
Just read your comment on the election and I loved it!
Yup, first time in a LONG time I was really proud of the US!
Still flying over the results!

Hello Lindy,
Another Melbournite! And another cat person, although sadly I don't have a PC at the moment. Good to catch up!
