Christmas Gifts and a little good news

24 Dec

For those of you who haven’t bought my book The Chocolate Refuge yet, then I’m giving you a little Christmas present, you can download it for free from Amazon for two days only on the 25th and 26th at http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/reader/B009Y67UV8/ref=sib_dp_kd#reader-link   I would ask though that you pop on a little review, and if you like it, please ‘like’ it.

As for the good news I found out that I’d been shortlisted (nine out of 200 of those who’d applied) for the Scottish Book Trust New Writer’s Award http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/reader/B009Y67UV8/ref=sib_dp_kd#reader-link unget fortunately I didn’t get the award in the end, but I was really pleased to get that far. When motivation is waning it’s great to get a boost. Coming after the Mslexia publication it’s been a great end to the year.

Looking forward to the holidays, only 11 hours of paid work to do in the next two weeks, so a bit of relaxation and re-charging of the batteries before the New Year’s Resolutions kick in. I’ve been procrastinating a bit with the new book (mainly due to lack of time) and been putting short stories into my workshops (now renamed the G2 Writers) but I’ve got an early slot in 2013 so I’ll need to get on a bit further before I let people start commenting on the first section.

Hope everyone has a great Christmas and I’ll be back in 2013

I make nice frocks and write average poetry. And there's a bit of embroidery and the occasional rant.
