magical midlife detectives

I started writing the paranormal women's fiction book when I needed to give my mind a rest from my dissertation writing. I asked on Facebook if 40+ ladies would be interested in reading the first draft. 

I copy the post here: 

"So here's the question (to 40+ ladies):

if I wrote the fist draft of a tongue-in-cheek paranormal women's fiction book as blog posts on my website, would you be interested in reading and commenting on it? Maybe even suggesting where you'd like to see the story go? (Not promising it would go that way but you never know...)

Just asking as I am having a hoot writing such a story at the moment when my brains need a break from my dissertation writing...

And anyone else but midlife ladies be warned: the story is about directly speaking kick-ass heroines who might need supportive underwear but won't be put down by anyone with the idea that life worth living ends at thirty. They find suddenly that magical stuff exists, that stories of fantasy figures are based on reality, and sprout surprising magical skills."

I got so many yes-answers I posted the first draft here.

But now (early 2022)  the book is in ints final editing stages, and I have removed the first draft. I may post audio files of its to my newsletter subscribers later. Also - if you sign up to be on my reader team that gets the book for free before it is officially published (in return I only ask for your honest review), you get to read the book for free.
