DAVID: My friend asked me how my day had been and jokingly I described it as a diary entry with each bit broken down. She loved it and asked for more. After about a week of this she suggested I try a book. I was bored as I spend most of my time indoors so I agreed. This was in about September 2010. I finished the first one before Christmas and another friend did the proof reading for me and Ilil did my editing. Because the story was written like a diary and because she compared me to Trollope and PG Wodehouse we decided to change the village to part of Barsetshire and it became My Barsetshire Diary.
To fill in the holes for those who have just discovered author Janet Beasley and the JLB Creatives Blog, Janet has written her inaugural epic fantasy novel and is hard at work on the next 5 novels in her Hidden Earth series while "Maycly" is out on submission. Self-publishing has been put aside for the time being as Janet feels strongly about having such a large novel professionally edited, printed, and marketed. However, this does not mean she has completely vanquished the idea of self-publishing but wants to test the waters first.
To read an excerpt of "Maycly" you may wish to visit Janet's interview with Lord David Prosser at http://barsetshirediaries.wordpress.com/interview-with-janet-beasley/
