Hi! Here's Julia's latest news.
I've just put two volumes of an action-packed family saga on the net)
If you like good page-turners, lots of intermingled story lines set in various locations and involving some sixty three characters and more, these books are definitely for you!
The story kicks off with a family of four - actually, my own ancestors - about to emigrate from Plymouth, England, to Sydney, Australia. During their six weeks' voyage they encounter other passengers, all of whom have a powerful influence on their very different lives.
The two books cover the period from 1882 - 1893, and you can expect to become involved in the successes and setbacks of the the Tapsons' building and fashion businesses. There are passionate, sexy encounters leading to romance and weddings -and a birth and death or two, along with a disastrous fire. The theme of our main characters rising in the social scale makes form an interesting background, while the plot moves through a number of different countries.
The novel is called Coming South, and because it is a lengthy saga with such a broad picture of life in nineteenth century England and Australia, I've published it in two volumes - Volume One, and Volume Two: I'm sure that once you get stuck into Volume One you'll find it pretty impossible not to go on to Volume Two - you'll just have to find out what happens next!
So if holidays are ahead, or long flights - or whatever - I think you'll find it good to get involved with Mary, Fred, Susan and John . . . and then there are many more, such as Agatha and Orlando - not forgetting his horse Zenobia!
Don't forget - you DON'T need to have a Kindle to read these books - you can download them in any of the many media, such as your ipad or even your phone!
