What to Expect When You’re Not Expecting


Being a writer may well mean writing all the time (in which case, you’re fortunate), or writing in as much of the day or night as you can steal from the world and your family and your day job. The point is that it’s difficult, a lot of effort goes in before anything ever sees the light of day. You’re unlikely to be constantly bringing out a new nov

" Cheers! "
Restoration by Angela Slatter
"This book was sent to me by the publisher, Jo Fletcher Books, at no cost. It was launched just a week or so ago - hooray!

I'm going to be smug and say this is actually the second time I've read this, because Slatter sent me a very early version which," Read more of this review »
Restoration by Angela Slatter
"Another enjoyable instalment in the Verity Fassbinder series, following a sarcastic, witty and edgy heroine who now has even more to lose with a baby and family.

As usual, the complex and detailed plot line follows Verity's investigations in the Weyr" Read more of this review »

“Confess how you worship and obey Lucifer, the fallen one.”
"You fool. I worship none, and what woman with a brain in her head obeys anyone, let alone a failure?”
Angela Slatter, Of Sorrow and Such

“Memories change and shift, ferment in our minds; they are never the same when we take them out as they were when first we put them in.”
Angela Slatter, Of Sorrow and Such

“there’s a part of us which is still yearning for the tales that we were told as children, the ones that shaped us, the ones that taught us the value of imagination. Fairy tales may very well be the greatest of all the tales we’ll ever read; when we’re first given them they seem so simple, so easily recognisable—and as we grow older, we see the darkness behind them, their passions and their horrors.”
Angela Slatter, Sourdough and Other Stories
