Farewell to the blog – but it’s not the end…

I started this blog almost exactly six years ago, publishing my first blog post on 20th April 2013. Over that time, I have published 130 posts and have maintained a minimum frequency of at least one post per month. These are very modest numbers compared to other bloggers who blog every week or even every day, but I’m still happy with the content I’ve created over the years.

I’m very excited to introduce you to these characters, who have been my secret companions for the past sixteen years.

And I find I can’t wait until publication day to do that! So I have Continue reading

Get an exclusive first look at my book cover design

Getting the cover designed for my book, A Class Apart, is an exciting stage in the self-publishing process. At last I’ll be able to visualise it in images rather than words and picture it sitting on a bookshelf like a real book!

A Class Apart is the first instalment in my historical fiction series, A Matter of Class, so it’s important that the genre is very clear from the cover. I began the design process for it with my cover designer a few weeks ago and am due to get a first look at it sometime next week. I’m so eager to see it and I want you to share in the excitement! If you’d like to join me in Continue reading

Snazzy New Website with a Shiny Newsletter

This post includes info on how to get a sneak preview of my first book’s cover design so do make sure you read on!

It’s been nearly three years since I set up my website so I decided it was time to jazz it up a bit. I’ve changed the theme, taken down outdated material and added some new items to make it more relevant to where I am right now in my writing career. The About My Books page provides details about A Matter of Class, the series I am hoping to get published in the future, while the About Me page might give you a bit of a giggle.

The most important new feature I’ve added to the site is Continue reading
