Would you marry for money?

This is the first thought-provoking question at the end of The Trinket Wife. Reading the novel isn’t necessary, although you might like to. You can submit a personal or group response. 

My personal answer: Not only for money, but people do tend to marry in social groups and I guess I have.  People know they don’t want to live in poverty with children if avoidable. They may not marry for heaps of money, more for a steady job and prospects for both partners. Having hope for the future when making plans depends on some financial security.

The more I think about this question the more possibilities there are for answers. Please add your comments in less than 100 words. All comments will be moderated to avoid offence.

Returning to my blog

I am pleased to be back after taking time out to write The Trinket Wife and do all the other things that add up to a full life.

November to March is the time I spend in Sri Lanka and an opportunity to spend days when writing is a priority.

Today The Trinket Wife started its journey from upload to download availability. There is a lot more work to do. Getting the paperback version available. Marketing and reconnecting with my blog and more.

For any writer, taking control of a book is a huge task. It takes many hours of preparation. There are the times when the computer goes down at the wrong moment. and numerous interruptions. For all my fellow writers I send my admiration.

Also to all those who keep on writing because they enjoy it and don’t want the hassle of publishing.

I have joined a writing group here in Kandy, Sri Lanka, and take pleasure in listening to what others have written, over a cup of coffee. It is because of them that I have found the spirit to go through the task of publishing and marketing for a second time.

This is a blog to reconnect, now each week I will be in touch and read your blogs too.
