Yes, you read that right!  I am absolutely stumped: I don't know what to write about today. Nothing happened yesterday, so far nothing has happened today, and if the trend continues, then nothing will happen tomorrow!

That does not mean I want something horrible to suddenly descend on me just so I can write about it tomorrow. No, far from it. But just think, wouldn't it be wonderful something exciting were to happen today or tomorrow so that I could come back here bursting with news.

I can't even tell you anything about the novels I started am working on some time ago because I don't seem to be able to add anything to them. So you can see how serious the situation is. I used to sit here and ramble away, but I seem to have writers' block. At one time I didn't believe there was such a thing, but I can tell you here and now that there is - and I have got it!

I have just thought of one trickle of news. Our lovely nephew, Christopher sent a little card thanking, both me and my husband for the little Easter present we sent down for him. Of course the little man didn't actually pick up a pen and write it himself, his father did it for him. But I am sure he dictated the message and made sure his daddy got it right. :-)

Christopher is growing up fast. I understand he is going on his holidays to Corfu this year, so he has had a passport sorted out for him. And I am sure that he has made a list of all the things he wants to take away with him. Another big smile here :-D  The little man isn't a year old yet, but I know he has the family organised.  He has even got his first pair of shoes for when he is up and walking, which I gather won't be too long now.

I think that is all for the moment, but, as usual, if something suddenly blows into my mind, I will get straight back here with it.

Oops, nearly forgot, if you have a minute to spare, please log onto my new website. I need a little traffic to show Google search engine the way there!! 

Have a great day wherever you are,

My New Website! & a few other things!

Two exciting pieces of news for you today!

I have just launched a brand new website. 

I would really be grateful if you would take a look and let me know what you think of it so far.

I still have a few things to add, but I am getting there. At the moment it is displaying my novels, which is why I set it up in the first place, but I hope to add a few other things of interest. Therefore I would love a few ideas from you all

The address is

The Trojan Project now has a new publisher

The recent promotion I organised for The Trojan Project was a great success. A big thank you to anyone who downloaded a copy. I do hope you enjoy the read and pass on the information to your reading friends, group and anyone you can think of.

Since the promotion, the novel has been picked up by a publisher. So how exciting is that?  They also negotiated with the artist who did the cover and have been given permission to use it, so I am quite delighted on all points. I love the cover and it has been well admired.  It seems that the new publisher loved it, too and wanted to keep it.

I have also upgraded my phone. However, I do still have the same number. I think I have got to grips with it now. Technology is way beyond me these days, but I am learning. And I have to say the people I spoke to on the EE help line were really very good.

So all round it has been quite an eventful week for me. I don't suppose anything more exciting will happen for some time - unless I win the lottery this evening.  But that is not going to happen!!

Nearly forgot - I am going on a diet!!

Have a great day wherever you are


Quick PS!!!  I didn't win the Lottery last Saturday :-(
