The cover of the eBook.  Great isn't it?

Shelley Schadowsky does fantastic covers.
It is nearly one year since we released our novel. You would think that by this time it would have made a name for itself, but it seems that twelve months on and we are still out there helping with the birthing process.
It's a great read, everyone tells us so.
Only last week, Shelley, the lady who did the cover for the ebook said to us that she had read our book from cover to cover and had been talking to her husband about it since she put it down. She just couldn't get it out of her mind. Normally, to illustrate the cover, she samples the book, has the writer suggest the main characters and twists of the story and goes from there. She began to sample our book and just had to read it all and then continually thought about it and the issues it throws up. And this is a professional who illustrates dozens of covers a month.
Also last week, at Moe Probus Club, we had the audience of about one hundred ladies and one gent spell bound as we did the reading. We have developed a good theatre piece - he says, she says where we have hand picked pieces from the novel to illustrate how far apart Jennifer and Stuart really were when it came to the important things in life. They really didn't understand each others motives at all. Our audience loved it.
So twelve months on and our faith in Lover Husband Father Monster is still alive. Today we have had an internet marketing guru over to discuss the appropriate marketing of the ebook. No good putting it up into cyberspace if nobody knows about it!
This is a whole new sharp learning curve for Elsie and Graeme, but as they say, it keeps you young and interested.
These are some other reasons men and women are different.
1. We can scare male bosses with mysterious gynecological disorder excuses.
2. No fashion faux pas we make could ever rival the Speedo.
3. We don't have to pass gas to amuse ourselves.
4. If we forget to shave, no one has to know.
5. We never have to reach down every so often to make sure our privates are still there.
6. We can talk to the opposite sex without having to picture them naked.
7. If we marry someone 20 years younger, we are aware that we will look like an idiot.
13. We will never regret piercing our ears.
14. There are times when chocolate really can solve all your problems.
15. We can make comments about how silly men are in their presence because they aren't listening anyway.
