The Ghost Writer

My first book has been published…how exciting! It’s available for £9.99 through www.lulu.com . I would like to thank everyone who believed in me and to my wonderful boyfriend, Daniel Pelling, who has been my knight in shining armour and my rock. This goes out to you when I say you are my world, my inspiration and everything to me. Thank you.

Anyway, here is a brief synopsis of The Ghost Writer. I hope you enjoy the book as much as I enjoyed writing it. And thanks to my awesome niece, Becky Joyce, who I will employ as my editor one day! Giving my first autograph yesterday was really cool and something I could get used to (lol, thanks Kat!).

The Ghost Writer: A Short Story By Liane M. Hoare

Jack Somerfield is tired of his mediocre life and is fed up with his job. He has been ghost writing for other people and is desperate to make a name for himself but lacks the confidence to do so. Deciding to emigrate to Canada from London to be with his girlfriend and closer to his publisher. When he arrives he settles in quickly but struggles to come up with ideas for a story. Eventually the writer’s block is lifted and Jack really gets stuck into it; working all day and all night. His life is taking a turn in the right direction and he begins to get excited about his new project and the opportunities it could bring. His publisher has always been supportive, as has his girlfriend Lisa. Jack was finally believing in himself. He knew things would be different from now on, he just didn’t realise how different things would be. The lack of sleep was catching up with Jack and was affecting his relationship with Lisa. Then one fateful day, while driving back from town, Jack’s life would never be the same again…

About lianehoarephotography

Well the name is Liane Hoare as you could possibly guess from the name of this website and the nature of it should tell you that I have a keen interest in photography and poetry. I am in no-way a professional photographer but one day, who knows. Any spare time I have you will find me out and about with my digital camera, which at the moment I use a Kodak Z710 which has a 12 x optical zoom so I can get close to my subjects without getting too close. I try to get out as much and as often as possible, whatever the weather. I go to Carshalton Ponds in Surrey on a regular basis, I have a good rappor with the squirrels there. No matter where I go though I take my camera out with me. You'll find photos on here from Manchester, Kent, Caterham, Cardiff, Brighton and London. Animals are my favourite subjects, I try to get snaps of squirrels, birds and even pets belonging to friends and family. You could say that nature is where I am most comfortable. I have only really shown a keen interest in photography for about two years now since I got the Kodak Z710, before I just used to take a little 3 x digital zoom camera out with me when I went out with friends - as you do. Now it has become a hobby I would like to turn into a career. I try to enter photography competitions when I can nowadays and recently entered into one on the National Trust, I'll do anything to get noticed now - within reason of course. With regards to poetry, I've been writing that for over 10 years now. In the past I used to write things down, put it away and forget about it, until one day someone found some, read it and told me to do something with them. I started off by posting them on Facebook a few months ago, just to see what people thought and I was needless to say surprised by the comments. To me it's always been a very personal thing, something that I would keep to myself as I thought that other people would shun or laugh at it, I didn't expect people to say they actually thought it was good. That's when I decided to put together this website. Combined with my photos I feel it gives a good insight to the person I am and who I am capable of being and hopefully you will feel the same way. In the future I would like to be a professional photographer, and writer come to that. My ultimate goal is to live in California and be set up with my own business in said fields. And I hope that one day I could make my dream a reality. I've since upgraded to an EOS Canon 100d DSLR camera and have never looked back. Best thing I ever did!

  1. Dear Liane,

    Many thanks for filling in the publishing enquiry form on the Authors OnLine website recently and for sending in your sample chapters.

    After a careful review of your work we would be happy to help you self-publish with us using our standard service. Your story is a real credit to you, it is well written, highly descriptive and grips the reader from the start, in fact this particular sample has actually been passed around the office and has received comments ranging from – ‘brilliant! – I want a copy as soon as it’s published!’ to ‘I can really sympathise with Jack… but I want to read the rest of it’, so well done on writing such a cracking story.

    The next step would be for you to ask any questions you wanted to ask about our standard service and then we can begin to draw up the paperwork and work towards getting you self-published with Authors OnLine Ltd.

    At any stage in your enquiry, if you have any questions please do not hesitate to get in touch.

    I look forward to hearing from you in the near future, and to working with you to publish The Ghost Writer.

    Kindest regards,

    Gaynor Johnson
