ON WRITING

“It’s very easy to quit during the first ten years of writing. Nobody cares whether you write or not, and it’s very hard to write when nobody cares one way or the other. You can’t get fired if you don’t write, and most of the time you don’t get rewarded if you do. But don’t quit.” Andre Dubus

ABOUT THE BOOK:

*This novel contains coarse language, violence, and sexual themes.

Sonia yearns for sharp objects and blood. But now that she's rehabilitating herself as a "normal" mother and mathematics teacher, it's time to stop dreaming about slicing people's throats.

While being the wife of Melbourne's leading drug lord and simultaneously dating his best mate is not ideal, she's determined to make it work.

It does work. Until Mia, her lover's daughter, starts exchanging saliva with her son, Mick. They plan to commit a crime behind Sonia's back. It isn't long before she finds out and gets involved to protect them.

But is protecting the kids really Sonia's motive?

  1. Dalmatian? I think she's mentioned it before on her blog, but not sure of the breed.

  2. My first dog was a Black Labrador mix, so out of love for Shorty (my first dog), I will say Black Lab. :-) WHITE LADY seems appropriate for Halloween!

    1. PS - I was not able to download the pdf advance copy as I must have waited too long. Too busy with hubs and the hospital. Sheesh.

  5. Yep I was going to say Dalmatian. Nope, don't want to win the book thanks. Not reading murder and mayhem much any more.

    1. Plenty of murder and mayhem in our daily papers. Fictional murder is better.

  6. Oooh! I love ghost stories.

    Jessica, you're everywhere. Way to go! I'm going to say the dog is a lab? (Only because that's what I'd get if I had a dog.)

  7. Been seeing White Lady all over the blogosphere, and it sounds like such an intense read. Congrats to Jessica!

    And oh, the ghost story challenge sounds like a lot of fun! Since art is an option for this, I might have to consider taking part, if I can find the time... :)

  8. Hi Denise - love the two pages you've pictured - what a great way of promoting Jess' book - her psychological thrillers I'm sure would give me sleepless nights ...

    Art for the ghost stories .. now that would be amazing .. except I can't for the love of life draw or paint or ... I could throw paint!?

    As for Jess' dog - I think it may be a Dalmatian .. but I'm going for a Pointer .. cheers Hilary
