Welcome to all my Indian Readers

So many of my books are selling in India I felt I had to say thank you. Usually, all I know about readers is the country in which they live, but I do know a few from India, and Harsha_ir has just joined my website followers, so a very special welcome to her.

Many of you already know Jaykishan as I’ve featured his book and his music.

You can find it on Amazon  India 

Or on Amazon Com

Please, if you live in India and are reading this, do leave a comment.

If you would send a photograph to me at authorsarahstuart@gmail.com and maybe a tell me a little bit yourself and your life, I’d love to add it here.

Also, I do price my books as cheaply as I can on Amazon India, but Jaykishan tells me they are still very expensive. If you’d like a free copy of one them, please email me and say which one you would like.

Thank you, Sarah

If you thought Covid19 will go down in history, you may be right, but what of those revealed in these powerful books?

I’ve just typed THE END to my latest novel, The Chainmaker’s Wife – a sequel to The Chainmakers’ Daughter. There’s still a lot of work to be done applying my latest research findings, editing beta reading, etc, but I hope to be able to publish it before Christmas.

I was asked to write this sequel by a reader who wanted to know what happened to Jack and Rosie after the landmark strike for a minimum wage by women chainmakers in 1910. What happened to them, he wanted to know from 1910 to the end of the First World War.

So I obliged. Had I known the difficulty of the research, I might have baulked at the task, but fortunately, ignorance is bliss and I jumped in with both feet. Despite the research constantly contradicting itself and having to dig deeper and deeper, it’s been the fastest book I’ve ever written…

The Story Behind The Story

I’ve loved animals since I “adopted” a neighbours cat when I was five. (She got very fat eating in two houses until Mum found out she wasn’t a stray!) Years later, when I learned to ride horses, I discovered that people hunted foxes for fun. According to them, they were controlling foxes that kill farmers’ livestock, but if that was true, why did they protect the foxes’ setts and stop killing them when the vixens were breeding? Research showed more cruelty, and these people didn’t pretend to be helping! They boasted about how many wild animals they’d killed – some of them endangered species – and their “good bag” of birds. I joined societies fighting against this, and I donated money, but I wanted to do more. How could I persuade people it was wrong when so many others couldn’t?

I based my first romantic novel partly on a girl who was born on a shooting estate, and the research on it was so harrowing I donate 100% of my royalties from all my books to organisations helping animals all over the world. The romantic thread of the novel is based on my showbiz experience, which is probably why it has won awards, but the subtle message is in a story designed to have wide appeal. if you’d like to read it, you can find it by clicking on the cover. If you have Kindle Unlimited, do use it. Page reads count towards royalties, so you will be helping protect animals for future generations.

Honouring the Fallen

Lest we forget…

Rebecca Bryn

It seems to me that the best way of honouring the fallen of two world wars is not to forget their sacrifice and have some understanding of what they went through. ‘Lest we Forget’ is written large on many memorials for a very good reason, but what do most of us actually know about the conditions in which soldiers lived and died, or the inhumanity with which the inmates of Hitler’s death camps were treated?

This isn’t something we should close our eyes to, however painful the truth is, and between the hope, courage, resilience, and acts of self-sacrifice, it is painful.

I’ve penned two novels about war and its effects on ordinary people, inspired by ordinary people, and writing and researching them opened my eyes. How did these men and women endure with such courage? I am still astounded.

To honour the memory of those who are no longer…

Sizzling Sunset

Dramatic close of the Royal Command Family Saga is almost complete!

Read the Editorial Review of just one of the multi-award-winning novels – Illicit Passion

The plot has many layers and the author weaves in the sub-plots masterfully. All the characters have been portrayed well and the twists and turns will keep readers glued to the book to learn what is happening next. Though the plot is complex and has many shades to it, apart from the incest angle, the book also deals with sexual exploitation and abuse. The writing style is fluid and the characters and scenes come alive under the author’s detailed narration. There is a lot of passion and action and the story takes readers into a different world; to one of glamour and riches.

Watch this page for the pre-order date when the price will be a mere 99 cents or its equivalent worldwide. A saving on the first four books of $10.97 + Sizzling Sunset, which will never be published individually!

 

 

Playing with Acrylic Pouring

I like this.
Watercolour Landscapes is great, so keep practising!

Painting Made Possible

I’ve only recently discovered this process, and I was blown away by some of the art I’ve seen done by this method. Inspired to try it, I bought the stuff, and then more stuff, and more stuff. Being a watercolour artist, a tube of paint lasts me for years, and I’m naturally mean, anyway, so this terrified me – acrylic pouring uses paint at an alarming rate. However, undeterred, I’ve had a go. Results pretty miserable to be honest, but the work of others drives me to keep trying.

This is the first piece I’ve felt pleased with. It’s inspired by a YouTube video demonstration by Julie Cutts of ‘Pouring your Heart out with Julie Cutts’ Facebook group. Look her up. When I’d finished it, it made me think of old painted boards, so I added a hasp and padlock.

I’ve called it ‘The Secret Door’.

I shall definitely be…
