New Year, New Book!

Hello again all.

Been a bit quiet here lately, due to old man being in hospital with pneumonia (again). As he's had two strokes, he has various problems with his health, and swallowing etc, so sometimes he gets chest infections, which can easily turn into other problems. I had to wait with him in the hospital for 11 hours whilst they sorted out a bad for him!!  11 hours! Can you believe it? I was just about ready for a bed next to him after that long on a hospital chair I can tell you! And because they were so short staffed, they'd had to bring in theatre staff to do the booking in of patients, and other work which, one of the theatre staff said she hadn't done for over 5 years! Chaos, complete and utter. That's the NHS for you. But hey, at least we have one, in other countries we'd have to pay through the nose for the treatment. (Which, because of that, would probably be better. Hey ho!)

Right, off the soapbox now! Not long now until I go to do my talks, and workshops, for the libraries and groups around here. Robert Hale are sending me some nice big publicity posters, with stands, to put on a table, so, as I used to be a window dresser, there should be some nice displays for people to look at when they tire of me yapping on!

Johnny Depp hasn't contacted me yet about starring in a film of my book! Never mind, there's time.

My third book will be on Kindle in the next few weeks. It's another Western, which was rejected by Hale, as not having enough 'action', but I've bumped up the Romance a fair bit. I finished designing the cover this week, and am now tidying up the last couple of chapters (for about the third time, I have three alternative endings, and can't decide which way to go). Once that's done, I will be putting it on. I will let you all know as soon as I start, and keep you posted on the progress and how easy (or hard) it is to do, especially for a non-techie like myself! And as soon as I can figure out how to bring my new cover pic into this blog I will post it for you all to see.
Oh. Well at least I've managed to add the picture to the side of the page, so please check it out. And while you are at it, why not come and join my page? It's free!

Bye for now, keep warm.
'Till next time. X
