Life is...


My latest book!

Hello Everyone,

Do you like the cover of my latest book? I thought champers was good for me and appropriate for the book title... "Life is..." Champagne and I are synonymous!

This is my eighth published work... six novels and two short non-fiction. There are two more works in the pipeline. Be patient, my friends. Meanwhile, enjoy a free download of this one for the next five days. Just pop -  Life is... Marilyn L Rice into Amazon Kindle and I pop up on all thirteen Amazon sites. This Internet thing is so clever. I originally made it look pretty with pics in between the words and the words at different positions on the pages. Alas, either I am inept with Kindle or it has a mind of its own and I have resorted to placing all quotes to  the left of the page and I hope all the pretty pics are still in the right place. Although, from the previews the book does seem to change according to the device you are reading it on.

I, like most people on the planet, have become a great fan of social media and in particular, Facebook. During the last six months I have been posting daily. Firstly, it was 'Words of Wisdom' and then I moved on to 'Life is…' Some of my thoughts were philosophical, others humorous. Sometimes I added photographs and emojis or I dedicated certain sayings to individual people. On a couple of occasions I even added a short story telling the inspiration behind the quotation, for example…'Life is about turning left instead of right and having an adventure!'
I noticed that I was getting a lot of those 'like' clicks and friends seemed to be enjoying my humble daily offering. I had an idea… put all of my posts into a short book and publish them. I have placed the 'Words of Wisdom' in between the' Life is…' quotations with some illustrations, either photographs from my albums or downloads from the Net under creative commons licence. All the acknowledgements may be found at the end of the booklet after information on my books.

I hope that those of you who download this will delve into it on the dark days and find that it puts the smile back on your face.

How would I describe it? Humorous, philosophical, satirical, stimulating, inspirational, illuminating, intriguing, thought-provoking, fresh, invigorating and delightful.

Have fun, life is too short to be miserable.

Until next week, lots of love, Lady M xxx
