If you don't mind, I'm just going to take a moment to relax. Ah, that feels good. It's been a busy couple of days in my neck of the woods. Yesterday, I received my copies of Small Forgotten Moments just as I was getting ready for work. And obviously, I wanted to share it straight … Continue reading Links and pre-orders!
2021-08-31T00:01:00 days hours minutes secondsuntilit's published! So, yep, it's less than a hundred days until Small Forgotten Moments is published, and - as usual at this stage of the process - I'm twiddling my thumbs, somewhat. The proofs have been read and changes agreed, some wonderful authors have provided quotes for the cover, and until … Continue reading Dancing a jig – and a bit of housekeeping
It's been almost two weeks since I last posted - my regular Mondays have gone off the rails. Last time it was a Thursday, today Wednesday. However, I have reasons... I'm going to start with some sad, personal news. My lovely Dad passed away last week. The man who taught me how to make stick … Continue reading Blogging in a daze
For anyone that awaits my Monday posts with baited breath, apologies, it's only Thursday but this post couldn't wait. Having said that, it's the weekend soon! When I was writing Grace & Serenity, I knew Grace was going to be homeless for a while, but I also planned where her story would go next. In … Continue reading Raising money this Christmas
It's time to look back over the month, but you know what? I don't want to. It's been a horrible month and I want to create as much distance between me and it as possible. All I'll say is I'm going to be a lot more careful how I use the phrase it can't get … Continue reading Not one, not two, but 3 fantastic books!
It's been an amazing week of reviews, interviews, shares, comments and - of course - a quick bottle of bubbly and a huge bouquet of flowers from my wonderful husband. I've also been stalking the Amazon and Goodreads stats - so far, not too bad - which, for the non-writers among you, is entirely natural … Continue reading The first five days!
I've always been a writer. Then, with the publication of my first short story, I became an author. Now I'm a novelist! I might have mentioned it... Today, I'm going to be popping up on social media, wafting around like a novelist, doing novelisty things like stalking Amazon sales lists and eating far too much … Continue reading I’M A NOVELIST!
So, the world's not calming down any, I guess. The silent, early days of the UK lockdown have exploded into this heightened emotion spilling out. I'm not going to linger on it. It's an ongoing, expanding situation, but I'm sure one day it'll seep into my writing. And, one day, I'll feel able to write … Continue reading A little bit of publicity
Follow my blog with Bloglovin Well, that was a bit embarrassing, that re-entrance! Like stumbling into a party after too many glasses of wine and shouting 'Look at me!' Except, in this case, it was my own party I was gate-crashing. The first thing I noticed - once I'd put the bottle down and turned … Continue reading Supporting the Indie Presses
Hello! Anyone there? I know, I know... it's been a while. How're you doing? Personally, I'm very confused about all these new WordPress features. And at the moment, it doesn't take much to confuse me. I'm in the middle of writing a new novel, I've got edits of another to figure out and - you … Continue reading I’m back!
