In 2012 I started my ebook project, ebooks were in, I knew that love stories were very popular. When I started to write I wanted to write stories with humour, but many of my stories turned themselves into love stories. An ebook of love stories – why not?
I wrote a few new love stories and made a note of some of the love stories I had already written. A few more stories were floating around in my head. Ebook “too love to crazy” was in the making – a collection of short love stories.
Catastrophe hit me in 2013 and the ebook idea went on the back burner. Five years later ebooks are not so popular and being successful with ebooks means a huge amount of luck or very expensive advertising. However my stories still exist in my PC or my head. So here is my ebook:
The four storiesand and and are short and sharp. The story is a piss-take on the traditional romantic paperback. All written in 2012.
When I was young I read some romance books by Barbara Cartland, Georgette Heyer and Rosamunde Pilcher. Why I do not know, I certainly did not buy them, I must have borrowed them. They each had the same bow-legged plot: the young woman and young man were together at the beginning (feet), apart in the middle (knees) and together again at the end (top of the legs).
I wanted to write about love. The story(written in 2011) is the fight of love against violence, depression and alcoholism. I suppose that is the theme of these stories – love in awkward and unusual circumstances succeeding against the odds.
The first potato story is(written in 2012) however the other two are and were in my head for the last eight years. The theme is love battling other cultures.
