Another 5* review for "Of Paradise and Pigs" by Jim Pearce in France,

"First class read, very amusing.
Some very typical French and expat characters.
I learned much about pigs and truffles.
Hope to see more from this author about France”

Well, GWL Publishers say they will not be offering me a contract for “Pigs Two” so it looks like I have been drummed out of the brownies, buttons taken off and stripes cut away! I want to get “Arsenic” out ASAP and after that I am undecided. I am not sure about doing “Pigs Two” on my own and may spend what time and energy I have left doing something about the pitfalls of Indie publishing, from agents who charge, courses on how to “become a writer” or a proof-reader, weekend seminars for would-be authors – and not forgetting my dear lady friend (dead now) who took out a bank loan for £25K (really!) to have the most awful bodice ripper I have ever read published and ended up with boxes and boxes of the hardback books in her garage, which are still there God-knows how many years after the poor woman’s death.

Good work to have so many positive reviews for your book. I think will also try to read your books to know how good is your book. Having some great positive review of your work feels very amazing to know and make you have some relief for yourself about the hard work that you made to finish the book. I'm also happy that you have some friends that help you out to support on finishing your books and make it successful. Their effort did not go in vain and I think they are very proud of your success.


You have so many positive reviews. I think I'm gonna go for your books.

Amazing views by your side, thank you for that.


Nice post, thank you for sharing.


Is this a part of your book? It is strange to read a book with a pig as a main character unless it is a children's book! One of the most famous children's books with a pig as a main character is the story of three little pigs. This is embarks a very important lesson to our children! I wish there would be more of this kind of story! Thank you for making one or at least reviewing one! It is nice to read some reviews about something!
