My book’s first review on Amazon.com

5.0 out of 5 stars Before and after Stardom 7 Feb 2013
By MichaelW – Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Amazon Verified Purchase
“This little book by Moragh (Mo) Carter is an enjoyable journey through the lives of Jack Blanchard & Misty Morgan. I knew their biggest hit “Tennessee Birdwalk” but living in Australia and being young, I knew their hit ,but no more, until quite recently I became friends with Jack and Misty on Facebook. I quickly became a fan of Jack’s wonderful humour and wicked stories of life hanging between fiction and fact. So, when I discovered this biography, I couldn’t resist it. As a musician, one’s goal is success : a hit song. But there is the long road to arriving and, more surprising, the even longer road after a world number one! Struggle. Some quite awful situations present themselves which required presence of mind, effort and good fortune. So Jack and Misty are a good read; a nice romance; an adventure; a chart topping creative stream and a darn nice little book.
My compliments to Moragh on her conveyance of the rough and smooth of their lives. She, as author, is quite transparent usually – faithfully describing her subject with, I think, very little false colouring.
If you know just their hit song or if you’re a serious fan, it’s a nice book to read. I confess I would have liked a bit more because some situations stimulated intrigue and a thirst for a more in depth look but buy it. Honestly. It’s nice.”
Thank you, Michael from Australia.

Nice to get the approval of my typesetter …

Jennifer Liptrot of Matador Publishing, who did all the typesetting for Jack & Misty’s biography, ‘In Harmony’, was asked if she ever got time to read the books she was working on.

She replied, “I sometimes do get to read our books all the way through. I read the majority of yours and found their (Jack & Misty’s) lives fascinating.”

She went on to say that she had ordered a copy of the finished book for herself.

It’s Finshed at Last … !!

At long last my book, ‘In Harmony’, is finished and now on sale from Toubador Publishing or from Amazon. If you have been waiting with bated breath, your wait is over and you can go ahead and order your copy just as soon as you please.

The work for me is not yet over as I have 100 copies to sell in my local area. The Book Shop in Nantwich is carrying some copies on a ‘sale or return’ agreement and so is my local garage. I have already obtained permission to sell them at my line dance classes and at the country music clubs that I attend regularly.

One or two people have told me that they are waiting for the e-book which will be out before the end of November.

Here is a picture of the back cover of the book
