It’s day something of lockdown and the radio is playing What becomes of the broken hearted? Who chose this? It’s one of the saddest songs ever, the lyrics alone make me want to reach for a razor blade, but the melancholic minor keys? It’s having me dig out the last of my chocolate stash and that is positively apocalyptic.
On to cheerier things. With all of the mad scrambling for essentials like Whiskas kitten yellow, hot chocolate, and face masks, I completely forgot that I launched the box set of The Jozi Series. It drifted up into my email and drifted back down again into the flotsam of my Inbox. So HERE IT IS.
That’s The Joy of Comfort Eating, String Theory: A love story and The Ex-Factor all together in one ebook. For now, it’s available on Amazon Kindle Unlimited, so FREE if you’re on that particular programme.
I’ve been so busy with all of the erotic romance that I sometimes forget that I wrote contemporary romance which is far tamer than my other work. These stories are all about feisty women searching for love in urban Jo’burg, and are definitely NOT erotic in nature! In fact, in today’s tumultuous world (when is it not?), these stories are light and happy and about finding true love, even when my lovely ladies are sure it doesn’t exist.

Unlike Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s classic, Love in the time of Cholera, I don’t feel that love is a disease, a malady, an affliction that strikes us down and makes us weak. If anything, love is the antidote to the ills of this world with its unpredictability, instability and uncertainty. It’s often the only thing we can count on to lead us through stormy waters and navigate us safely into the calmer shores ahead. I, for one, am glad that I write love stories, even if some are unconventional. What better healing balm for scared, weary souls?
Keep safe! Stay safe.
