Hi everyone! My name is Claire Plaisted. I live in Palmerston North, New Zealand with my husband and son. Palmerston North is one of the main stops for a University Studies, especially in the Farming area. There are lots of things to do, be it walking, cycling, museums, swimming and a fabulous library with cafes and restaurants galore. There is also a huge shopping centre 'The Plaza,' with 100 shops etc.
I am an Indie Author and family history researching making family history books for clients. Since that time I have also developed a business to help Indie Authors self publish. I have helped publish twenty plus books for clients so far.
Plaisted Publishing House is a contract service bringing Authors together with Specialists they need such as Editing, Cover Design and Formatting We offer package deals for Authors who need everything or a little etc. We also still offer one-off deals. Our aim is to get as many Independent Authors published and online as possible with reasonable costs. After all, not everyone is computer savvy.
Back to me! I have published over twenty books. Two are short stories, six are part of a series which is called ‘Garrett Investigation Bureau.’ I have one adult fantasy, one children’s mythical story. I also have six contemporary romance novella’s under my pen name ‘Beth Bayley.’ I have a children's book series called Girlie Adventures. The first three are now available. ‘Girlie and the War of the Wasps,’ ‘Girlie and the Quest for Pedi’s Family and ‘Girlie’s Circus Adventure. They are adventure stories for children from four years upwards. Each one sold gives 40% to a charity. The first book is, in essence about healthy eating and the book will help raise funds for ‘Chasing a Cure for Type 1 Diabetes.’
Enjoy your lives and read a book.
