Hello and Welcome Readers and Friends,
It has been a long while since I have showcased some current book clients and friends of mine. It is always exciting to meet new authors, and to help them with all their social media and book promoting needs. It is what I enjoy doing, and I love introducing all my clients and author friends to new readers who will enjoy their new books and novels. Now we all know how self-publishing has changed the landscape of book buying for avid readers.
And its the readers who are benefiting the most of this wonderful indie book phenomenon! There are so many new books releasing each day! Many are self-publishing, but there are some wonderful small publishing firms who release awesome books to. But when you self-publish it benefits the writer/author as well. They can write and publish all on their own without expensive publishing costs or without a publisher at all! They enjoy the freedom of owning their book rights, royalties and much more.
So let me introduce you to some wonderful authors, and the best part of my job? I make long-lasting friendships with all my clients. “So Lets Start With The Ladies!”

Meet Author, A.R. Tirant ~ (Rosie)
Novelist, A. R. Tirant, is the prolific writer and novelist of, “Echoes from the Oasis,” A Beautiful Historical Romance Novel Series available on Amazon and it is now an Amazon Best Seller!
Rosie Tirant-Longhurst, aka A.R. Tirant, was born in the Seychelles in November 1958, the daughter of a policeman and the eldest in a family of four brothers and four sisters. She grew up on the northern coast of Mahe island, in the tiny seaside village of Beau-Vallon. Her working life started in 1975 as a nurse at Mahe’s Victoria Hospital, followed thereafter by a career in the Hotel Industry. She emigrated to England in 1995 and now lives in West Sussex with her husband. She has two grown-up sons and a granddaughter.
Rosie wasn’t born with a pen in her hand, far from it. Life growing up was hard and strict. The home comforts we all now take for granted were but a dream for the young girl whose days were divided between household chores, cooking, cleaning and looking after her young siblings. Water for all the household use had to be carried from a stream, with one hand holding a pail on her head, and the other keeping a second pail from spilling.
Education only happened because it was the one way of getting some rest during the daytime, even if the chores still had to be done by the light of a coconut oil lamp. They were difficult times… times when she would lean against the pillar of the outdoor kitchen waiting for dinner to cook in the large black pots, staring at the tropical skies and marvelling at the diamond beauty of the scattering of stars above, and all the while wishing for a different life…
‘Echoes from the Oasis’ is her debut novel which will be followed by other titles in the same series. Please visit her beautiful website that is also supported by The Chamber of Commerce of The Seychelles Islands, were Rosie was born and raised.
