Small town ladies
It’s lovely to have the opportunity to talk about my favourite ladies. Meet Sammy, Kate, Charlotte, and now Lily (with Gemma coming soon…). And I’m offering an Amazon eBook giveaway too.
When I wrote my debut romance novel The House on Burra Burra Lane I had no idea I’d be writing another four books in a series but that’s what happened, and I’m so glad it did.
Set in a fictional small town in the NSW Snowy Mountains, each story in the Swallow’s Fall series follows the romance of the hero and heroine—but each story also incorporates the difficulties of those moving to the country and those who are already settled in the country and on the receiving end of the newcomers.
Would you live a small town with fewer than 100 inhabitants? It’s a question I’ve asked my readers and the responses are so interesting. Roughly, 50% would and 50% wouldn’t. But from those who wouldn’t, the majority say they’d give it a try or that they love visiting small remote towns in books and that’s the way they prefer it. From the percentage of those who would (either have or still do), the response is unanimous: yes please.
No matter where we live I doubt many of us could cope with the hassles of life without support from others (notice I say support, not interference though! Although both go hand in hand on occasion, and that’s just life).
In my small town stories, the themes are about being lost, looking for a new start, getting over the past, and eventually, about belonging and how important it is to give and to receive. And yes, the protagonists fall in love. I’m delighted that they find their happy-ever-after but I hope my stories also give insight into small town life and everything that entails.
I currently live by the ocean in Western Australia but I’d like to live in a small country town. I wouldn’t live in town though, I’d live a twenty-minute walk out of town. That way, I’d have the satisfaction of community and the comfort of solitude. Perfect, to my way of thinking.
Books #1, #2 and #3 in the Swallow’s Fall series are out now and book #4 The Turnaround Treasure Shop – a shorter length novel out as eBook only – was released 22nd May. (Book #5 The House at the End of the Street will be released 27th July 2015 as eBook and in paperback).
For a chance to WIN an Amazon (Kindle) eBook copy of The Turnaround Treasure Shop just leave a comment, answering this question: Do you or would you live in a small town in the country with fewer than 200 inhabitants?
Looking forward to your answers!
