This is a 'novelette' of a life in 33 stanzas. The title is intentionally reminscent of Gabriel Garcia Marquez's outstanding novel '100 Years of Solitude'. The similarity ends there. 100 Years of Ermintrude is a poignant and moving story of death, life and birth told in an unusual manner.
Its authors want it to make a difference in the world so they are donating £1 from every download to the Walk the Walk charity for the fight against breast cancer.
In addition, they are willing to donate up to a further £1 to any charity who links to their web site or from their site or an email newsletter.
100 Years of Ermintrude reviews:
"I found Ermintrude thought provoking and moving. I loved that the snapshots are all current and the clever way that they're presented . For people who know Tom as an ecommerce guru, this baby will come as a bit of a shock" - Ann Moore
"Well - what can I say. Powerful, subtle and highly emotive." - Mark Eaton
"100 Years of Ermintrude is the first e-book I've ever bought. It's a jewel of design and beautifully written - although it can be read very quickly, actually it's something that needs to be savoured again and again" - Neil Fairbrother
"Amazingly different and great fun! This ebook will be attractive to a wide and diverse audience." - Mary Ryan
"What an endearing piece! There's a bit of "Ermintrude" in all our lives - both the joy and the tears. I was eagerly awaiting "100 Years of Ermintrude" and was shocked by how different it appeared from what I had expected. Upteen times more superior to how I'd imagined it to turn out. And your kindness to link into Walk The Walk for breast cancer research is a measure of the good people that you are!" - Guy Massey
"What a stroke of genius to turn it upside down - you're drawn further and further in, desperate to know what happened before. It made me sad - a small child trying to ease her mother's sadness, it made me laugh at the thought of the thong and it made me think that at least one of my girlfriends will develop breast cancer or maybe even me! Very evocotive writing particularly when writing as a small child. I love it and I love Ermintrude and especially the big floppy hat. Completely typical of Tom's kindness to ask everyone to donate to Breast Cancer charity. Do hope it is an enormous success and many more to follow." - Jane Owen
"Excellent story - told in an innovative way, it really makes you think. Fascinating insights into Ermintrude's life - and lovely photos and artwork that complement the tale. Well worth a read!" - Christine Clacey
