La Vie En Rose: Notes From Rural France

by Susie Kelly

‘Think Peter Mayle meets George Carlin. Brilliant!’

Living the French dream – vineyards, sunflowers, lavender fields, glasses of wine and platters of fromage. French ladies slender and chic, French men wearing berets and riding bicycles with baguettes clamped under their arms when they are not flirting outrageously, and all the while the sun shines down benevolently upon uniform rows of ripening vegetables. Dreams are strange and unpredictable, and sometime so is la vie en rose.

A pick from some of the best bits of the popular travel author’s blog diaries reveal the minutiae of expat day to day life in rural France. A must-read for Susie Kelly fans and anybody thinking of, or dreaming of, moving to France.

What readers are saying about La Vie En Rose: Notes From Rural France:

‘My first experience of Susie Kelly, and I am enraptured!’

‘Fun, amusing and lovely to dip into in the evenings.’


‘Wonderful book, I laughed till I cried and just couldn’t put it down.’

‘Very entertaining!’

Misfits: Steve Jobs’ One Last Thing plus Adaâ??s Universe (Time Travel Geek-out Book 1)

by Micah Joel

Now includes 2 time travel books!

The impossible happens, 500 light-seconds out from Earth. Paymonia, a trader on the probability exchange, can’t believe her feed: Steve Jobs, Ada Lovelace, and William Shockley have returned and are working together.

For the first time, now includes the complete 2nd story, featuring Ada Lovelace’s adventures with Marie Curie.

Interview with the Author

Q – Where did the idea for this book come from?

A – Not long after this universe lost Steve Jobs, someone said that he would probably come to fill a similar role in fiction as Nikola Tesla. That struck a strong chord with me. With the Silicon Valley angle established, the very colorful character of William Shockley came in as well. But the story needed something else, a character with a very different take on the multiverse…

Q – How did you come to include Ada Lovelace?

A – Earlier drafts of the first book had Marie Curie as one of the protagonists. But as the idea grew from just one story into an entire series, I realized that Curie would be important to the series longer-term. I did a lot of research into Ada Lovelace–read all her published letters. The more I read, the more I knew she had to be part of this. She was absolutely brilliant. It was only a short stretch to make her into a superhero.

Q – So you are working on book 3 and beyond in the series?

A – That depends on my readers! I have the next story in the series done, but beyond that it’s still open. One thing readers can to is visit my web site and let me know what they’d like to read.

Q – Why should readers give this series a try?

A – The Time Travel Geek-out books are written for geeks, by a geek. It includes a very sympathetic depiction of autistic characters, with a mix of historical accuracy and rollicking adventure. In the end, this is a celebration of geek culture. Enjoy!
