Bobbie Darbyshire, British author of best selling novel "Truth Games",
has been selling out copies of her new book fast!
She contacted me to let me know that my painting,
titled: Dreams Time, is on the cover!!
We're now friends on facebook! She's totally awesome, I can't wait to read Truth Games!
Every week she's signing books in local book shops!
She also has a second novel published, titled, Love, Revenge & Buttered Scones.
Bobbie is currently working on her third novel!

Truth Games - Bobbie Darbyshire on Amazon

Description of her Book
After the hippies and before the yuppies, between the advent of the Pill and the onset of AIDS, between the 'summer of love' and the 'winter of discontent', the newest game in town was sex.
In mid-seventies London a group of friends play a dangerous game of open marriages, secrets and lies. "It's only sex, Ann. It won't hurt us," claims Lois, beautiful, talented and determined to get whatever or whoever she wants without being held back by her longsuffering husband, Hugh. Wherever they are, sex is there for the taking. But can love be free? 'Truth Games' bares all. It's fast, funny and sexy, but as the summer heat increases, stakes are raised and consequences have to be faced...
What readers say:
"It shows the deft touch of a psychologically astute social satirist"
"It leaves you with that taste in the mouth: a blend of loss, innocence and cynicism."
"I read this novel like a hog eats its share of strawberry tart."

Hi! Maria here. I am hoping I am getting to the correct person - I wanted to thank you for the beautiful art work - I am using CONTEMPORARY PAINTING OF MEDITATION for the cover of my book "Love Your Body Now! Lose the Weight of Self Hate and Gain the Yummy-ness of Goddess-ness" When I found this piece, it was more than what I was looking for. Thank You! You can contact me at: maria@mariabucaro.com

Wow, Congratulations! You have a lot of great paintings too :) I'm curious to know, because I also paint, and you've given me the idea that I should photograph and upload photos of some of my nicest paintings, do you have your signature in your paintings on Dreamstime? I can't tell from the thumbnails... I am muddling this idea over in my head... Whether I should leave my signatures in, or photoshop them out... I wonder if they more or less useable one way or the other, and if there are any other issues I need to take into consideration...?
Again, congratulations, that is so exciting!
