Alberta Ross


The past was interesting the present is fun and the future exciting.

My writing began just before retirement, having spent many years travling the world and studying, I gained a BSc in anthropology and food science and an MA in my 40s.

Among my many interests I include reading, ecology, ethics, crazy patchwork, gardening, food,
climate change, music,family history and sustainable living.

The Sefuty Chronicles are fed by my many interests and experiences, by my concerns and hopes for the future of the planet.

    I found this book one day while browsing the nonfiction titles and took a chance. So glad I did. Splendid book - clear and concise. Marketing one's books with advice from writers seems to me to be a better way to go than advice from marketers - don't know why. Have read the book quickly to get a feel for what would apply to my books and now will go through it again to follow the links and ponder the advice. This will be near by me for a long time I can see. A very useful book. Well done and thank you
