Love of Books Australia-wide-Sharon Pearson

Fences, Gates and Posts by Sharon Pearson

When Sharon decided to give her book a go.  That is exactly what she did.

Why did Sharon Pearson decide Love of Books was the best option to assist with the publishing, printing and marketing of her new book?  The Care Factor!

Care is our main point of difference.  That is who we are as individuals.  Our dedicated book publishing team will take the time for you.

Apples versus Apples: It may be true that you only get what you pay for.  But what if you get the opportunity to pay less for your book publishing and book printing within Australia and get more?

With a little help from the Love of Books team Sharon invested some quality hands on time with the marketing of her book.

It is for sure all in the planning.

About the Author

One of four sisters who spent their childhood on a dairy and cattle farm at Kidaman Creek (Sunshine Coast hinterland Qld), she draws on her wealth of experiences such as fencing, timber falling and cattle handling to add authenticity to the pages and brings them to life as only a rural person can.

Sharon also draws on a variety of rural teaching experiences (governess on remote cattle stations) and travelling in ‘off the beaten track’ places to add colour to the imagery in the book.

About This Book

My interest in fences was sparked when I was travelling in a road train with my husband who explained that the end of one property and beginning of another could be recognised by a different fencing style. Fascination with gates was partly inspired when I noticed there were references to gates written in the old testament of the Bible (which was written in another country to Australia).  As I was travelling, I saw the aesthetic appeal of some of the fences, gates and posts. I also noticed how varied they were.  From this began over a decade of travelling and collecting photos in the hope of preserving some history and highlighting the importance of fences in rural (and for that matter) urban life.

Book Reviews

[What I liked most about this book is that not only does it contain information on fences, gates and posts, but there are many pictures of the Australian landscape incorporated within the images.  The book is also a useful documentary. This would assist students and immigrants likewise obtain an essential understanding of this country. It was a pleasure working with Sharon launching this historically valuable, informative and well-illustrated book.   Ian Lewis: Director Love of Books Australia-wide]

[Very thorough and detailed historical work. Offers one the opportunity to learn about even little known facts about the formation of the Australian landscape and its history, as well as progression towards its modernization.

Just had my first book published by Love of Books. The Love of Books team worked so hard with my sister and I to get all the files perfect. The Love of Books team have been very accommodating. They even sent some early copies to where I was travelling, so that I could begin to market them. Thank you Love of Books so much to all of you for your wonderful help. As a first time author I didn’t know what to expect but they were intent on trying to help all the way. Being a photographic book about Fences, Gates and Posts the files need to present well. It took a while but it eventually came together and I am very pleased with the result. I hope some of your followers might even purchase some copies. Make sure you look for my FB page which they also helped with setting up – Fences, Gates & Posts. There are some great photos of unique places in Australia. Thanks again Love of Books!

Thank you Love of Books Australia Wide. My book is receiving some great interest. We had an awesome time. Many people saying “Oh I remember those fences…” A great time and friendly library – real community at Kingaroy.
