Not Only One - but TWO!

Yesterday my novel 'Only Twelve Days' went up for grabs at only 99c/99p. The offer is to last the whole week.

However, if that wasn't enough to be going on with, today my other romantic read, 'Divorcees. Biz', suddenly decided that it didn't want to be left on the shelf, so to speak, so it, too is now on sale for 99c/99p.

Only Twelve Days

If you enjoy reading heart-warming love stories or novels of fun & romance, I suggest you head over to an Amazon near you and download your copy today!

Or you could make my heart sing, and download both copies while you are there! If you do, please tell me which one you liked the best!

You might recall that I was going to start a diet at the New Year - well unfortunately it isn't working. For some reason I can't get myself motivated this time. I had hoped that I would have lost some weight by now. After all we are two months into 2015 and I am stuck. I really need to get a grip on myself and give myself a good talking to. The spring, then the summer will be here before long and I won't be able to fit into anything. Okay, I know I could go and buy something new, but I don't really want to buy anything in a larger size. So you see my dilemma. Things are just not going to plan!

I don't think I have mentioned that wonderful series, The West Wing for some time. Well it is still at the top of my agenda. I finished watching the series for the umpteenth time recently and what did I do - yes you are ahead of me - I started watching it from the beginning all over again. You are right! there is not enough going on in my life!

By the way, just before I go, ff you haven't already dropped by to see my website, I would be grateful if you would take a look sometime. Eileen Thornton   Go on, humour me  :-)

That's all for the moment, Have a brilliant day wherever you are and I do hope the sun is shining down on you.

A Surprise for Christine

A Surprise for Christine is a collection of short stories.

A Surprise for Christine

The collection was originally published under the title Twelve of the Best, but my publisher thought that it was time they were given a new title and a brand new cover and hopefully a whole new lease of life.

The stories are light-hearted, very easy to read and would fit in nicely with your coffee break. (if you manage to get a coffee break in your busy day)

Anyway if you are looking for a quick read, then A Surprise for Christine could be something you might be interested in.

They seem to have finished digging up the streets in Kelso or at least I thought they had. But it now seems that there was something not quite right because they are at it again. The pavement outside the Town Hall is up again. I think this must be about the third time they have fiddled around outside there.
Could they possibly be looking for something a workman left behind? Or more importantly, could they be looking for one of the workmen?

Is it possible that when they did a head count at the end of the day, they found that one man was missing and had to come back and start looking for him? Okay, I know it sounds stupid and probably is, but why do they have to keep tearing up the areas that have been done once or even twice before unless they are missing something?

I play the lottery online and the other day I received an email to say my ticket had been lucky. I was to go to my account and find out how much the ticket was worth. As it turned out, I have won £25, which is very nice, but wouldn't it have been wonderful if there has been a few more noughts on the end. I could have seen our family were okay and set up a fund for our gorgeous nephew. But it wasn't to be - at least not this time. But you never know - one day...

I think that is all for the moment, except to wish you all good luck in whatever you do.

Have a great day

Fifty Shades of Romance!

Valentine's Day is almost upon us once again.  But this year, there is a little added extra, as the film version of Fifty Shades of Grey is about to be launched.

I haven't read the book and I certainly have no interest in the film. Therefore, as there may be more people like me out there I thought you might like to take a look at some of the other books on offer. There are plenty of romance novels on the go and all without a hint of 'Grey'.

If you follow the link (above) it will lead you to my website where you will find a selection of romance novels written by author friends of mine. I'm sure there will be something there to suit every taste. Click on any book for more information.

So why not give it a whirl. You'll never know until you try.

That's it for the moment.

Have a great day thumbing through the books.

Wonderful News!

Yes, I have had some wonderful news today:

The video trailer for The Trojan Project has won the January contest at Cold Coffee Cafe

As you can imagine I am delighted and would be grateful if you would follow the link and take a look.

Those who have read the book will agree that the video, designed by Creativia, really depicts the mood of the novel very well.

No more news at the moment except to say that it was my birthday on Friday. This means I an one year older. Not that I feel any older, but the calendar says I am, so it must be true.

On that note, I will close.

Have a great day!!
