About me

Just One Year is my first novel, written entirely in Mojacar in Spain. It started very tentatively but eventually reached about 100,000 pages (edited to 98K). It has been quite a feat to get the POD and Kindle publishing done, but we did it!! Website now developed (www.colettesmith.weebly.com) so taking advice from this site. Now just got to sell.

About me, a retired lady living in Spain/UK – my doesn’t the sun make writing so much easier! I’m looking forward to reading some of the work here and hope some of you will read my effort.

Gotta say my feet haven't touched the ground for the last two months and now I seem to spend the time twittering blogging and generally do things that are so far from writing I can't believe I'm doing it. Anyway, hubby showed me a review on your book and congrats. Mine is onCN but not on Amazon yet and am getting disillusioned about the lack of interest. Ah well, back to the drawing board!!

I am sort of inordinately proud of the book now, not because it is a Pulitzer Prize novel but because I have made it as good as I can do. Will get my Technical Manager to investigate the website although we have had many hits. xx (more) and won+3
