I am writing this mail to you with due respect trust and humanity, Honestly, I must first ask for apology to burden your respected life and for the surprise this letter may be seen to you because we have not been in much communication. But I want you to contact me back for important issue here email@example.com
I only make furniture for myself (and friends) these days - my tax standing in France means that I can only work with intellectual property, not as an artisan. If I wanted to sell furniture here I'd have to register on a whole new tax bracket - too complicated, and expensive.
And you are on. I'll give "The Safe Word" a review. Here's the proviso - I'll never write a nasty review, (except for a Bestseller - if it deserves one), but I will write a fair one.
And another thing, I really, really hope I like your work. I'll start reading at lunchtime (in about an hour).
Market research is related to the IT Industry - I do the back office stuff; database design, data analysis, public domain research. - Sorry this reply's in parts, but I'm new to this Crimespace format. Hope you're receiving this okay. :)
A Shropshire lass? Nice one. I did my PhD in Birmingham and spent some time near Malvern, but lived in Northampton for 21 years before moving to Brittany.
Snap! I have three grown up kids (a girl and two boys) and three grandchildren (a girl and two boys).
Why France? Good question. My wife and I have holidayed here forever and decided to buy a pre-retirement renovation home, in 2004. Took me five years to finish rebuilding the place and decided to retire early - couldn't stande returning to England every other month. Moved here permanently on January 10th 2007 - once they installed Broadband in our local village.
Now I spend my days as follows: paid work in the morning (market research), cycle training alternative afternoons, and writing the rest of the time.
Self-published my first full-length crime thriller last month. So excited to have something in print at last - it's actually selling too. Whoopee.
