Divorcees.Biz - Special offer - UPDATE



It seems that my publisher,Creativia, has added Divorcees.Biz to the special offer list this week. ONLY 99c/99p

Therefore, you haven't read this crazy novel of fun and Romance, then now is a good time to get in the pink and download a copy.

Quotes on Amazon tell of it being "A Delightful Helping of Fun and Froth", "Hugely Enjoyable", and "Love in London. a Great Light-heated Read" to name a few.

So what are you waiting for?

Actually the paperback version would make a perfect Christmas gift :-)

Yesterday I was supposed to be going to Newcastle to do some Christmas Shopping. Unfortunately I was feeling so unwell I was unable to go. I'm still not sure what it was, but it seems to have cleared up this morning. However, this morning is too late!! Isn't it just like the thing?

Nevertheless, my time at home wasn't entirely wasted as I was able to sit and figure out Google+. Well sort of. At least I was able to Plus and Share a few folks and lo and behold, I see some have reciprocated.  Which I understand is a good thing. I am told that Google+ is the way to go, so if any of you want to plus/share this blog I would be delighted. This is the link which will take you to my page/post hopefully......  well, with a bit of luck it will.

I think that's all folks, but I'll be back soon

Have a great day wherever you are.

It's Me Again! Added a postscript WOW!

Yes, you read that right - it is me again!

I am bit like a bus this week - you wait for ages to hear from me, then suddenly two posts come along at once.

But I just wanted you to know that my publisher, Creativia, has reduced the price of  Only Twelve Days to 99c/99p for one week - starting today.

This gives you the opportunity to read this charming love story for less than a dollar/GBP

Also, just for a bit of fun, would you let me know who you would cast as Bill if this novel were to be made into a movie. While I was writing the story, I had someone in mind and I am rather curious to know whether any of you would come up with the same person.

I'm afraid I don't have any further news for you, except to say that I am off to a friend's house this afternoon for a natter and I don't mind admitting there will be a bottle opened when I get there.

Take care all, and have a great day,


Adding a postscript here Monday 17th Nov.  My publisher has just told me that my novel Only Twelve Days has really taken off. It seems there is still room in this crazy world for an enchanting love story. WOW! Way to go!!

Hi Again!

Hi Everyone, I bet you thought I had gone for good. Well no, I haven't - not quite!

I would love to tell you that all manner of wonderful things have been going on in my life, but I can't. I'm afraid. Things are just the same as normal, but I have simply been tied up a little more with these mundane things.

One thing of note is that the roadworks/pavement laying in Kelso seems to be coming to an end. Though I have to say the parking is still as bad as ever. And on top of that, when I made a fleeting visit there yesterday morning, not only could I not get parked, but there was a traffic hold up and I was stuck in Horsemarket for fifteen minutes waiting for the traffic to start flowing again. There was a lorry at the top, probably unloading and a bus was trying to get past and couldn't. So there you are, We were all stuck there.

I was too far away to actually see what was going on, but it looked like the new wider pavements are actually - too wide - making the narrow road even more narrow. Especially at the top where pedestrians are supposed to cross. If this description sounds complicated, it is because the whole thing is very complicated!

I have just had a message appear on my screen saying Blogger couldn't complete my request! What request? I haven't requested anything! I am too busy typing away here to request anything on another page.

Is it just me? Or is there anyone else out there finding all these little things popping up on the screen every so often? If I was more technically minded, I might had a clue what they are going on about. But as they think I know all about how the computer system works, I simply get a strange cryptic message leaving me totally perplexed.

Which brings me to another little funny incident earlier today. I was tying out a tweet, when suddenly my computer started to talk to me... Yes you read that right. Some voice in my computer was telling me about something to do with 'hangouts'. I had absolutely no idea what he was talking about, but more importantly, how could this little voice suddenly jump into my computer and start talking to me. It was quite scary, rather like one of those horror movies where someone is trying make another person think they are insane by talking to them when they are not there. Creepy or what?

Anyway, when I came to click off Tweeting, I found a little message on the screen from Google. It seems, because I have started following a few folks on Google+ they think I want to be involved with everything.

My publisher decided that I needed a new back cover blurb for Divorcees.Biz So if you want to take a peek, the new blurb is up there on Amazon now.

Well I think that is all for the moment.

Have a great day!
