Delay

A big delay for my next book Families as there has been a hiccup in production and it will take some time to sort out so it looks like the end of the year before it’s out. Such is life! Meanwhile the others are all going along nicely it seems.

Next year another one hopefully; the best yet!!!

Excited

I am feeling very excited for three reasons, Firstly not long now hopefully before my next book is out called Families. Secondly I have had what I think is the best yet accepted by the publishers. It’s called Alone and I hope everyone will like it! Thirdly I will be visiting friends and family in the uk soon. How good is that? before that I have an author event coming up too. More on all this later.

Talk

Yesterday I was invited to talk to a group of ladies at the Salvation Army hall in Boonah. It was a very happy morning that started off with  morning tea then later after a few offical things I was invited up to talk to the assembled ladies. I say ladies though there was one gentleman there too. I gave them a brief summery of my life and a short piece on each of my books then read a small piece from my children’s book. That was the audiences choice. rather to my surprise though some said other books it was the one that most wanted. After that I answered questions. Later during the evening I met one of the attendees who said she wished I had spoken longer; she was enjoying it so much. A great compliment indeed!

Boonah Writers festival

This long weekend just passed we had the 3rd writers festival in Boonah which was a huge success. People came from quite a long way way to attend. Four workshops on Saturday with a dinner in the evening and a guest speaker. Two more workshops Sunday morning and we finished at lunch time. The workshops were each an hour and a half  ;so it was all very full on and interesting. Met some lovely people too which is always good. Lots of discussions about books and writing. Some of it inspirational and some left me thinking ‘don’t ever go there’ the ghost writing being one. That sounded like a real quagmire to me, very easy to get into legal trouble and other trouble too!

So onwards and upwards ,our writers meeting this week so it will be interesting to see what people think. Next week I have an authors talk.

Travelling

So now Travelling is out I will see how my readers like it. One or two may find it slightly confronting but hopefully they will see what I am trying to say, the subject can be emotive. There is an Irish quote I love and it’s so true.’ As you slide down the bannisters of life, may the splinters never face the wrong way” How apt is that, and in a literal sense a splinter in your bottom would be very painful  i’m thinking!

Reviews

I have had some awesome verbal reviews lately for both Belonging and Possession and I am very grateful. I just wish people would post them on one of the web sites my books are on. its great being told but it would be even better if they were posted.

Never mind as long as people are enjoying my books what more can I ask! Someone told me yesterday they thought Possession would make a great movie. Anyone out there????  It will be interesting to see what people think of Travelling , very different from the other two.

Out Now

New book is now published by Austin Macauley and it tells the story of Sam who has a secret she feels unable to share. The fallout from this follows her across the world from England ,Ireland to Australia. It impacts on her life in a way she hadn’t thought possible and because of it she comes near death , can she be brought back from the brink?
