Another wonderful week!

Hello everyone, thank you for stopping by! If you're looking for details of where to enter the Coming Home to Cuckoo Cottage signed paperback giveaway you'll find them on the next post down. The closing date is fast approaching so do add your comment and watch this space as this is where I'll be announcing the winners.

As regular visitors will have noticed, I've made a couple of changes to the blog this week but you can still find all the usual stuff in all the usual places. What do you think of the new colour? I'll probably change it again when Sleigh Rides and Silver Bells is published, but this to me felt very summery and very Cuckoo Cottage. I hope you like it.

So how have you all been this week? It's been pretty busy in my neck of the woods and very exciting! I never thought I'd see the day when my face popped up in Heat Magazine, but here I am, sharing a top writing tip, giving away a FREE book and basking in the glory of a fabulous 5 star review. Not sure I'm going to be able to top that for magazine experiences!

I've also popped up on the blog of Chatty Cat author Suzan Collins this week. Suzan asked some fantastic questions in her interview and I even revealed what my first ever job was! Here's the link if you want to find out...

I will be appearing with Suzan at the East Anglian Festival of Culture 'Meet the Author' weekend in Lowestoft in September. I'll have more details soon and hope to see some of you there!

Along with all the excitement I have been working hard. I promise! I've been using some of the suggestions from the RNA Conference workshops and really getting to grips with the plot and characters of Novel Number 6 (title still under wraps), which will be published in time for your Summer hols next year.And I've been having a bit of a tidy up in the writing corner. This isn't a permanent writing spot - I still don't have one of those - and so consequently I have to keep on top of the mess. I found no less than 6 notebooks awaiting my attention and that's not including the pile of unused A4 pads. I suppose I better get cracking and get some words down.

And of course I've been looking out for Cuckoo Cottage on the supermarket shelves! The smile says it all.

Wishing you all a wonderful week!
