Web Design Examples - Linda Gillard
Linda Gillard - Author Author Linda Gillard is a recently published author with Transita who needed a website built prior to the release of her second book. She wanted a site which featured the subject matter of her books while also reflecting her interests in texture, fabric, and photography. I took the themes of Linda's first book, Emotional Geology, and using images of rocks, mountaineering equipment, and Linda's own quilts, I was able to create an attractive and evocative environment for Linda's own thoughts and writing. Linda wanted to be able to update elements of the site herself so it was constructed as a database driven system using PHP and MySQL and incorporates a content management system controlling the text and images.

Author Profile : Linda Gillard
Linda Gillard graduated from Bristol University and trained as an actress at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School. For eight years she pursued an acting career, the highlight of which was sharing a table in The National Theatre canteen with Sir Michael Gambon. (The lowlight was playing a fairy for four rainy months in an open-air production of A Midsummer Night's Dream in London's Regent's Park). Whilst under-employed at the National Theatre, Linda accidentally became a successful freelance journalist and wrote many articles based on her self-sufficient "Good Life" in rural Cambridgeshire. For twelve years she had a humorous column in Ideal Home. Linda ran her two careers concurrently for a while, then decided to give up acting to raise a family and write from home. Twelve years later she re-trained as a primary teacher and taught in Norfolk specialising in English and Art. A further rethink entailed giving up teaching and downshifting to the Isle of Skye, realising a long-held dream to move to a Scottish island and write full-time. Linda now lives with her teacher husband in a big house overlooking the Cuillins, a mountain range featured in her novel; Emotional Geology . You can read an interview with Linda and find out more about why and how she wrote Emotional Geology by clicking here.

Enigma Variations - Bill Marshall's personal blog

A couple of posts ago I mentioned that Linda Gillard had a new book coming out and I hoped to be reviewing it.
It comes out today and I've been working on a new set of web pages for it on her site - Untying the Knot. Review The book is perhaps the closest to a romance that Linda has yet written, but as always with her it's so much more than that. Indeed if that were all it was I wouldn't be finishing reading it let alone enjoying and reviewing it. She has the knack of creating characters that you can believe in as if you'd met them, and imbuing them with exactly the sort of flaws, errors and misconceptions, balanced by persistence and courage and refusal to give in, that signal something more akin to real life rather than fiction. What principally sets this book apart from the average romance and gives it its cutting edge is that much of the story focuses on the strains of living with the demons of mental illness - another theme which Gillard uses both frequently and with astonishing clarity and sympathy. Linda Gillard is a writer who is a little harder to pin down - "intelligent romantic fiction" is maybe the nearest you could get to a short snappy description but really she has a lot more depth than that conveys. She started with the independent publisher Transita for her first two novels, the innovative Emotional Geology which took the brave step of having a heroine who was middle aged and was recovering from mental illness and which was set in South Uist, and the dark and challenging A Lifetime Burning, then moved on to Piatkus for the third, Star Gazing, a slightly more mainstream romance except that the heroine has been blind from birth while the male interest is from Skye and has the second sight. Translated into a number of different languages it has proved a popular and award winning book, but here things started to go wrong when the publisher demanded more of exactly the same and rejected the book she actually wrote next. Like most real writers she was not one to churn out formulaic stuff and wrote the ideas that came to her, and she was forced to part from them and seek alternative publishing. In the meantime her popularity amongst the online book discussions and bloggers was really taking off - something that could have been easily researched by any publisher - but astonishingly her subsequent books have been consistently turned down by all the publishers they have been submitted to. As a result she decided to publish her most recent book - House of Silence - as an ebook. In that form it has done very well, and despite setting a low price she has done better from the sales so far than she would have done from a full price paperback. Despite all this, a proven author who has lots of enthusiastic readers and online fans who are waiting impatiently for anything she writes, her latest book has again been turned down by a swathe of publishers. Since most of them don't seem to have the required understanding it's inevitable that many more authors will take the path that Linda has and publish themselves, and eventually publishers will become obsolete.
