Like a phoenix


Many thanks for all the messages I received from people after my last post. I truly appreciate the support extended by each and every one of you. If I haven’t responded to your email as yet, please bear with me, I will get back to you pronto. 

Great News

There’s tons of it to pass on.

  1. Airbnb have opened up my calendar and I'm booked up until the end of October. This is a great relief to me.
  2.  I’ve been loading my books on Draft 2 Digital which means they’re available for all e-readers and not just Kindle. This is long overdue so I’m very glad I finally got that squared away.
  3. I’ve also finally gone ‘wide’ for my paperbacks so can approach local independent bookshops and libraries to stock my books.
  4.  I’m working on a short book as part of the Deed series. It will be exclusive to members of my mailing list. That should be done by mid October and with my subscribers once I convert it to an epub and mobi doc. I will also provide a pdf if people prefer that.
  5.  I’m well into the final edit of The Witch Adoption Project. My ART will receive their ARCs in early October if not sooner. If you like children’s fantasy fiction and want to join that please drop me a line.
  6. Here is the proposed front cover for the above. I would love feedback on it. Don’t be shy!

I stood there, eyes shut, head tilted to meet the day and promptly sneezed humungously.  I recall this happening to me as a child.  It appears I'm still afflicted. Why does this happen?  I pondered  So I G o o g l e d it. Because:  a) the laptop is in the next room  b) it can be accessed even with one hand still wrapped around a cup of tea and c) I think a trip to the library for this sort of diversionary tactic is a little excessive And discovered an actual syndrome called Photic Sneeze Reflex .  18 - 35% of hu

Zoo Nation: the animals speak out!

Finally it’s here. The poetry collection which my Sheffield bestie Bev Cross and I have been promising you. Sincere apologies for the delay. That has been down to me entirely as I was in charge of the final edit and only just recently got my act together. A huge thank you to our ART team for helping us make this collection reader ready. Your support is invaluable and immeasurable. £1 from the sale of each book will go to our respective animal charities. Bev’s Sheffield based chosen charity is cat-CHING . Follow them on Facebook  or Instagram to see the incredible work they are doing. Also, click on his image and take a moment to meet BBIII (aka Beaumont Barrington the Third), recently rehomed and now settled in the Fulwood area of Sheffield. Bev chose this charity because she admires the selfless work of the two women running it in their spare time. BBIII My chosen charity is Ebony Horse Club which is based in Brixton.
