Smorgasbord – 20th Anniversary #Free Book and Some of my Very Odd Jobs by Sally Cronin

Sally Cronin is offering her book – Just an Odd Job GirlFREE! I’m pretty sure I’ve read all of Sally’s books, as she is a ‘smorgasbord’ author who writes in various genres. This book happens to be my favorite. Fall in love with Imogen and her jobs as she ventures on through life. And along with this promo, Sally is divulging, in a series, the true identity of those jobs as she shares about each of them – and some we never knew about, in this series.

It is 20 years since I put pen to paper.. of fingers to the keyboard and wrote my novel Just an Odd Job Girl. I am delighted that it still gets the odd recent review, but I thought to celebrate the anniversary I would offer it FREE for the next few weeks. Particularly as I am in the middle of editing my next collection due out in November.



As an indie author on Amazon I don’t get to do free giveaways, so I would ask you to email me on and let me know if you would like a Mobi for Kindle or an Epub version of the book for other devices. I promise I won’t share your email with anyone else. You can find out more about the book and its most recent review at the end of the post.

To set the scene I am going to repeat my series from early 2018 which shared the background to the stories in the book that I elaborated on and fictionalised. As a bonus I will also be including some other jobs that were not in the book that might also be considered a bit different. For example, flogging bull semen at agricultural shows to selling ‘similar’ top end perfumes in the East End of London. I think you get the idea about how odd some of these jobs might have been. . . Please visit Sally’s blog and get your free copy!

Book Review – Just An Odd Job Girl by Sally Cronin

book reviews

Today I’m sharing my review on Sally Cronin’s book ‘Just An Odd Job Girl’.


Sally is not only a dear friend of mine, but she’s an amazing writer who knows how to draw her readers in with heartfelt emotion. And she happens to be one of the busiest bloggers I know. She runs numerous series on her blog from her health series, to short stories, to featuring other artists and authors and their works which she extends an open invitation to all to submit their books to be featured on her blog. Sally is a big personality with a big heart.


And speaking of her generosity, Sally has featured this book in weekly installments on her blog, so if you go to her blog, you can read the book for free HERE.


Please keep in mind, that even if we read books free or gifted, it’s still a huge appreciation to an author to leave a review if you’ve enjoyed it. And a small reminder to other authors who seem to have a problem with Amazon taking off their reviews, it’s quite alright to review a book of an author friend as long as you add a disclaimer to the review, something like this will suffice:  “This book was a gift from the author”.

odd job



Imogen takes us on a journey of her colourful life through sharing her stories about the many jobs and careers she experienced in her younger life while taking the plunge and being interviewed for a job after decades of not working.

After finding herself single after exiting a loveless marriage, she decides it’s time to change her life and rebuild her self-esteem.

Cronin’s flair for the written word and subtle humour keeps us wanting to know more about Imogen’s life, while rooting for her till the end.
