UPDATES! Check again please.

Quick note! If you tried to vote, but didn't find a voting form, then please try again. I have been told there was a problem with the Website. I need your help, guys. ☺

Hi again,

Just a quick post to bring you all up to speed.

I received the exciting news that Murder on Tyneside was neck and neck with another book to win the Book of the Month on Read Freely

I would like to say a big Thank You, to all of those who followed the link and voted for my novel. Your support is very much appreciated. But don't try to vote again, as I understand the site has been set up to stop anyone voting twice.

However if you didn't find the time to vote earlier, then please do so now. Your vote could be the one that pushes Murder on Tyneside over the line to come first!  Here is the link again: Read Freely 

Voting is quite a simple process. When you get to the site you will see six books, simply scroll down the page until you come to the titles and select your option. Leave your email address, as they will inform you of the winner at the end of the competition.  So, please, head over there now and add your vote.

The special offer on The Trojan Project has ended. I hope you were able to download a copy for 99c/99p before it closed.




However, if romance is your thing, then you are in for a treat, as Only Twelve Days is free until Sunday 2nd July.   Yes, you read that right. It is free!

Therefore, don't miss out on this delightful love story set in the 1970's. It's an ideal read for the weekend, which is almost upon us as I type..



My new oven, which I mentioned in my last post is working well. Not that I get wrapped up with ovens these days. Those days of cooking for the many parties we used to throw is well and truly over. But at the end of the day, I still need an oven, so praise where it is due. After all, I would be moaning all over the place if it wasn't working.

Well I think that is all for now, but please, whatever else you do today, be sure to vote for Murder on Tyneside at Read Freely

Think of it as your mission for today 😉  Thank you one and all, I shall raise my glass to you all at the end of the day.

Cheers!!
Chink! Chink!

All come and go!!

I don't know whether I am on my heels or my elbows at the moment - (is that the correct way of saying I am in a bit of a turmoil?)

It's nothing serious. Certainly nothing to get into a twist about. It seems that I have a few things to write/promote and to sort out at the moment and I simply don't know where to start.

Firstly my built in Neff oven started to play up. By that, I mean it suddenly decided that it had had enough and refused to rise to the correct temperature any more . No matter what I set it at, it wouldn't rise above 150c. Now, I agree that's fine if I needed to cook a stew or something similar on a low temp for a few hours. But it was no good at all if I wanted a higher temperature, which is often the case. Therefore after several attempts at fiddling around with the dial, I finally got the message that I needed to start looking for a new oven.

I have to say that our old oven has served us well for very nearly twenty years. I have no idea how long ovens/cooker last as my husband and I usually moved house every five years. (I am to blame here; it was a hobby of mine) But back in the old days, it was easier than it is now. Houses in the London area sold a lot quicker than they do in the current market.

Anyway, getting back to the oven situation, on Tuesday I made the decision to pop into a local shop to buy a brand new oven. I should add that our hob is separate and was working fine. Therefore, having chosen an oven similar to what I had, (it made sense as it would fit into the slot without any problems) only a more modern version, I am happy to say that it arrived today and is now installed and ready to use. The only problem is, it looks so lovely and clean, I don't feel the urge to use it!!!

The Trojan Project
Next, I had the wonderful news that my novel, Murder on Tyneside, has been shortlisted in a competition on Read Freely. The only problem is, I need votes. That is where you come in. Please follow the link to Read Freely and add your vote.

Also, The Trojan Project is on special offer this week. Only 99c/99p to download. So please if you haven't read this book yet, now is the time to download a copy and enjoy it while on holiday.

I think that is all for today, But if I think of anything else, I will be back --- where have I heard that before??

Cheers

Chink! Chink!
