Not much happening, except…


My book, Layers, has found it’s way into a beautiful little jungle library! To get there, I had to drive about 5km through a rough jungle backroad in a 4×4, through three streams (‘streams’ because the rain is subsiding now, otherwise it could turn into an impassable waterfall) and into the quaint jungle town of Ojochal, Costa Rica. If every you’re in the area, please pop in – it’s a beautiful little library and the friendly volunteers will be happy to show you around… 


Lots happening…


LAYERS has been awarded a Book Excellence Awards Finalist prize, in the Short Stories category! Out of thousands of books entered, my book was selected for its high quality writing, design and overall market appeal. Hooray, I can hear that film producer knocking on my door already! You can get a copy for yourself HERE if you’d like to check it out 🙂


Also, I’m finally on Facebook! If you’d like to follow me, I’d love to see you there. In the meantime though, still trying to figure out how FB works, so please have patience with this newbie ;o) Here’s my link: Zuzanne Belec – Home | Facebook


 Another one of my stories has been accepted, this time by CafeLit Magazine. In case you haven’t read MOTHERS yet, you can check out this very short story here: CafeLitMagazine: MOTHERS by Zuzanne Belec.


As if joining FB isn’t enough for a laugh, I’m going to be trying out TikTok now! Because it’s a great place for books, they say… And you don’t even have to perform any fancy moves to get noticed, they say… Only live once, right? Anyone out there who’d like to connect?
