Mark Williams and Saffina Desforges, authors of the bestseller Sugar & Spice are featured on the Summer Book Club this week, and they're talking about their amazing success as Indie Authors! 

Sugar & Spice - The Story Behind The Story

It’s just over a year now since the Saffina Desforges Partnership began. And what a year!

It’s been a roller-coaster ride so improbable that if we used it as the plot for a novel it would be rejected as unbelievable. 

An unknown name (actually two writers colla...

Cover for 'Not What She Seems'

Victorine Lieske is the author featured this week on The Summer Book Club. Let's find out how her fab success began! Take it away Victorine...


You know, it’s funny, I never set out to become an author. I thought it would be cool to be able to tell people that I wrote a novel. That was my whole motivation. It’s really kind of a silly thing, now that I think about it.

And of course, being a silly thought, I wasn’t very serious about it. I started a novel once, then about ten pages in I los...

Scott Nicholson is the next author to be featured on The Summer Book Club! I'm lurrving this cover so I want to hear more about Disintegration. 

Take it away Scott...

Disintegration was written four or five years ago during a dark time in my life. The title just sums up what was going on, and what I had to write to survive. I knew it was going to be dark and bleak, and that good people would do bad things and terrible people would do worse things. The evil twins are just a symbol of where I wa...

The Shop by J Carson Black is the next book to be featured on The Summer Book Club. Let's find out more about it...

How the Cult of Personality Inspired My Thriller THE SHOP 

When I decided to write a new thriller, I had several ideas on the table.  None of them made the final cut.  The idea for THE SHOP came out of the blue, thanks to a cable TV news show. 

Come to think of it, most of my ideas come out of left field.  When one of these ideas strikes, it’s like being hit by lightning.  I get...

Cheryl Shireman's Life is But a Dream is the next book to be featured on The Summer Book Club. So let's here a bit more from Cheryl...


I’m a Baby Boomer. Which means that I remember bell-bottoms, Happy Days, and having only three channels on the television. I played Donny Osmond albums on a record player. My parents watched Gunsmoke, and on Sunday nights we all watched The Wonderful World of Disney. In the living room. Together. On the only televi...

Natural Cures for Insect Bites

Posted by sibelhodge on Saturday, July 24, 2010, In : Health & Fitness 

It's summer again! Hurrah, I love the hot weather. The only downside to that, of course, are the mosquitoes and sandflies. And no matter what we do, the little buzzers will always sneak up on us for a quiet munch.
