This week has been a rollercoaster ride, and it’s not over yet!
Monday evening I attended a talk given by best selling author of romantic comedy, Adele Parks. It was good to take time out from working on my third novel to listen to Adele read excerpts from her new novel, ‘Love Lies,’ and to hear how Adele approaches the writing process.
I spent most of yesterday away from my desk visiting my best friend and my goddaughter on the Wirral. It’s always a pleasure to see them, and the time spent in their company yesterday was no exception. While we were chatting over a cup of coffee my cell phone rang. More often than not I forget to switch the darn thing on, so it was a surprise to learn the call was from the producer for BBC Radio Sheffield inviting me to take part in a programme called “Girl’s Talk.”
Not only that; I arrived home to find a message on my answering machine from the organiser of the local branch of the University of the Third Age inviting me to talk to their group.
This morning I received an email informing me that my interview with host Don McCauley of The Author Show, http://www.wnbnetworkwest.com/WnbAuthorsShow.html, be available on Friday 7th August. This weekend I shall be signing copies of my novels, The House on the Shore and Three Weeks Last Spring, in Borders Books, Warrington, and on the 14th August at 11.30 I can be heard on Girls’ Talk on BBC Radio Sheffield http://www.bbc.co.uk/southyorkshire/radio_sheffield/.
Saturday 15th August will find me signing books in Borders Books in Stockport, and I be talking to the readers’ Group at Borders Books, Cheshire Oaks on Wednesday the 19th August.
And in my spare time? Well, hopefully you’ll find me hard at work on my manuscript!
