Things You Should Know About Women (Written By A Man) - Quentin Cope

This is a book that comes with its own guilty smile from the first page and several situations calling for nothing less than outright laughter. Why? ... Because we have all been there! WARNING ... Sense of humour required. Now released on Amazon worldwide is the latest offering from author Quentin Cope. 'Things You Should Know About Women (Written By A Man)' is a collection of words that has ended up as a rather difficult subject to categorise. How it is viewed will very much depend primarily upon the gender and particular viewpoint of the reader, as it could possibly be seen as a book promoting marital and partnership harmony or, at the other end of the spectrum, a guide to treating the dangerously infectious inferiority complex of a fully committed male chauvinist. However it will finally be received, at first glance, a clue must be considered to be hidden within the title. This engaging and positively amusing missive can best be described as a sideways glance at relationships; an observational study of man at his best ... and worst, and a credible guide for practising divorce lawyers of either sex.

                                    Anthology 2020 - The Hartlepool Writers Group

Anthology 2020 showcases an eclectic mix of writing from participating members of the Hartlepool Writers Group (HWG). From Flash Fiction to Fantasy and Poetry to Romance the author/contributors to this fascinating 2020 Anthology are proud to present a series of work where hopefully every reader will find some particularly absorbing subject matter.

The need to write; the need to explore our minds and take ourselves to a different place on occasions is within all of us. The HWG is a collection of individuals who have a need to write; a need some would perhaps describe as a passion. By getting together once a month, and guided by HWG Facilitator Denise Sparrowhawk, members of the group are able to share their ideas, exercise some basic techniques and most importantly of all seek critique of their work from other members.

As more and more processed entertainment and thought divergence advertising bombards our modern lives, it is often difficult to consider starting the writing process. The pressures of caring for a young family perhaps leave little time for embarking on laying down a measured number of words; words that would be the beginnings of that elusive novel which is supposed to rest within the soul of all of us. Being a member of a writing group, such as the HWG, provides support, encouragement and most of all the confidence to grab any spare minute you can to get your thoughts down on paper.

So, we hope you will enjoy this varied anthology, provided without the use of hard and brutal editing. The poetic words, heartfelt emotions, spirited actions and possibly amusing storylines that lay between the pages of this book are those provided by the contributors as written, and we expect this to be the first in a series of annual productions.
