MISCHIEVERSE now available to pre-order…am so excited!

My first ever collection of poetry has arrived on Amazon, due for publication September 18th, but you can pre-order your copy or copies NOW!

And surprise, surprise (you know what I’m like) … it’s potty-mouthed, entertaining and very funny. Here’s what some of the pre-reviewers said…

Rude, irreverent and downright filthy … like Johnny Rotten meets Pam Ayres. –Julia Lewis, actor, Their Finest, Supergirl, Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm

This wonderful book gave me many laugh-out-loud moments. So many observations that resonated the absurdities of modern life. It’s great to pick up and open a page when the world seems chaotic, and puts a smile on the face immediately. Brilliantly written! –Jane Hatton, founder and CEO, Evenbreak

Snarky, quirky, downright rude, Suze skewers pop culture: its language, fashion, politics, entertainment. Not even family and cherished holidays escape her cutting wit. Through it all, she manages to make us laugh at ourselves and the silliness of contemporary life. –Barbara Grengs, author of the Toby Martin series of children’s mystery novels and Delicate Dames (forthcoming)

An amusing sideways look and anything and everything … the perfect gift –A E Rawson, author of best-selling crime novel, A Savage Art

Mischieverse is Suzan St Maur's first book of naughty, humorous poetry ... coming soon from Corona Books UK.

New book to be published September 18th 2017 … just in time for Holiday gifts!

Some excerpts to give you a flavour…

How to write a tasty restaurant review: introduction, Part 2

If you like eating out and want to share your experiences on Trip Advisor or elsewhere, you need to bookmark this serialisation of the late, great Sam Worthington’s (restaurant critic, not actor!) book. (You can start at the beginning with Part 1 here.)

How to write a tasty restaurant review

This was an earlier cover for Sam’s book – I prefer this one, but Sam’s final choice is below. Which do you like better?

It’s called “How to be a savvy restaurant reviewer” and shares everything you need to know not just about the elements like the food and wine, but also about the whole dining experience which in many ways is as important as what you eat and drink. Read on … and enjoy! [Read more…]

Please read this email sent to me by Mark Coker from Smashwords, and help end this sad embargo that prevents Cubans from benefiting from something we all take for granted: publishing, and reading books from the USA. If you are willing to help, please sign the petition ASAP as the US Government is due to announce modifications to its embargoes against Cuba, and we’re hoping this will be one of them. Now, over to Mark:

I’m writing to ask for your help.

6 women writers on favourite women writers: celebrating International Women’s Day

Even the most misogynistic male these days has to admit our world is constantly being enriched by the writings of hugely talented women, and has been for several hundred years now. So here’s to International Women’s Day, and our contribution to it.

6 women writers on favourite women writers: celebrating International Women's Day

“…what books are supposed to do: totally transport you into another world, another life, another brain and heart. “

I reckoned that the most interesting way to celebrate here with you, is for some of our  favourite women writers to write about their  favourite women writers … which is exactly what we’ve done. And here they are… [Read more…]
