Harold’s Empire is here!

Very happy to say that the latest AHaroldnn Edwards release is now available for download on Amazon Kindle.

Harold’s Empire is a story about the rise of the uncommon man. When Harold decides to leave school and join a bricklaying gang, instead of aiming for higher education, his parents are concerned and other relatives are quite snooty about him “wasting his chances”. However he develops three priceless assets: the guts to work hard, the ability to ruthlessly exploit opportunities, and the character to earn loyalty from others. His love life doesn’t suffer either!

This is a great read to warm up and cheer up those cold winter evenings.

Ann Edwards other titles include Max and Maisie, 2 plus 2 make plenty : the curious adventures of POJ and Angels Shoot Baskets.

Why write?

frog jpgWhether you are in National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) mode; thinking about writing fiction; writing inspirational true life stories. Or perhaps you just want to write reflective words about the world around you .

Whatever gifts writing gives you, just do it. Enjoy it. Luxuriate in it. Writing can be a place of refuge, liberation, therapy, encouragement and solace. It doesn’t have to be online or shared. Just grab a notebook and a pen and enjoy crafting your own words in whatever format makes you feel good.

Writing is calorie free and good for your soul. Reading is nourishing. Writing exercises your imagination and creativity. The process can help you create a happy me-space in your day.

Go on try it…
