On the Eve of Christmas I would like to thank you all so much for your kind support throughout the year, it is greatly appreciated as I tap away on the keyboard, hoping to God something decent comes out!
I wish you peace, harmony and plenty of laughs over the festive season, and let’s hope we all enjoy health and happiness in 2014 and beyond.
Well, here we are – the cover of my next offering, sitting patiently in some quiet corner till April 2014. Have to say I do likee very much – not too pink at all (right?) and lovely contrast between the colours (yes???) And just to clarify, the wedding in question is NOT the one that featured in One Summer. So there. But we will be getting the ferry back to Roone, and it’s summer again so pack your suncream and swimsuit, and a good book. Oh, hang on……………..
In other news, I’ve all but finished the book that comes next. I know, I know, it sounds like I’m churning them out, but I’m not really – I’ve been working on this one for about four months now, and it’s quite a bit shorter than the others, only about two thirds as long. But I’m quietly pleased with how it’s turning out, and will be dying to see who I can get to a) read it and b) publish it. Watch this space.
In the meantime, Christmas is speeding towards us. Have I mentioned the five – yes, FIVE – cakes I baked this year? Two have been iced and sent off to their respective homes, the other three are awaiting icing. And my tree is up, a little fake one with flashy lights. Cat doesn’t know what to make of it. And I have a little crib, and a few Christmassy candle holders and the like. Oh, and I saw these cute little snowman-shaped salt and pepper cellars in a shop that just had to be bought. And a red tablecloth. And I’m on the hunt for extra kitchen chairs so I can seat my seven (maybe eight) guests on the 25th. All go.
And now it’s dinnertime and the hunger is on me, so I’ll sign off. Will be back before Christmas to wish you all a good one, hopefully having got to The End in the next bestseller.
