Freelance Ghostwriter.

These days I'm freelance ghostwriting novels for other people, as it pays the bills better than self publishing. I Have taken my trilogy fantasy books out of publication. I hope to edit and re-write them all, one day. I still have in publication:

*My Protector, a paranormal fantasy novella.
_________________
*13 Bites - 2 short stories in a scary theme anthology with other authors.
*Summer Dreams - short story "Last Swim" is included in this anthology with other authors.
_________________
ROMANCE EROTICA: Pen Name: Kathryn Klarkson
*Teacher & Nurse" trilogy, available on Amazon.

Really wanted to give this a 4* but I'm not a romance fan and that distracted from the apocalyptic plot, for me. The romance was done tastefully, but I wanted to brush over those parts and get back to the chase. All in all, this is a good plot and we ...more

Catherine Vickers Presently reading New Religion and loving it, so I want to share with you a wonderful quote from this book:

"He would rather have charged into a thousand rickety villages with only a spoon than face this daunting wall..."

If you knew the character this refers to, and the situation he is in at this point in time, you might understand why this is such a lovely set of words, emphasising the humour of this talented author. Great book, will report back when I leave my review.

Catherine Vickers OK I admit it, I just deleted most of my favourite authors on GR because I didn't know who many of them were. Did this when I first became a member and didn't realise what I was doing. Now I'm starting over again my real favourites.


Catherine Vickers If there are any fantasy fans out there, I invite you to read my Prologue. It might confuse as it is a bit abstract until you've read further into the story. I wanted to create a prologue that made my readers think, "hmm ... I'll have to read more to find out what's going on". ALL comments very welcome. http://www.goodreads.com/story/show/3...


Catherine Vickers FREE READ Prologue - Guardian Dragons. I welcome all comments. http://www.goodreads.com/story/show/3...

Catherine Vickers Just realised I seem to have my book on twice on Goodreads and this has split up my reviews. Does anyone know how I can rectify this ie delete 2nd one and somehow get the reviews onto the other??

Catherine Vickers Just to say, got another 4/5 review for Guardian Dragons (Aarabassa World series) by Catherine L Vickers


Catherine Vickers Did I tell you all that Guardian Dragons is FREE to download on Smashwords in many different forms. No I didn't, I hear you say, OR, yes you did and I've already got it and I'm going to leave you a review right now! https://www.smashwords.com/books/view...

Catherine Vickers I've just reached my 1st publishing goal. Book 1, Guardian Dragons at it's KDP end so now allowed to publish e-version elsewhere. Available on Smashwords for FREE in lots of different versions. Book 2 out in paperback and will now put e-version via KDP. I hope to do this process for each new book in the series. Not sure I'll have the next one ready in 90 days though so it's a bit of an experiment.


Catherine Vickers I have just discovered R4R on Goodreads and I will get all future books to read from this list (fantasy or paranormal). That way I can enjoy a good read and help my fellow peeps (English for people = meaning authors).


Catherine Vickers CELEBRATIONS again my friends. Just got my very first review on Amazon 4/5. This is fantastic. Makes all that slogging away writing worth it. I just hope Amazon don't delete it for whatever reason they decide. Whoppee
