Giving up. Two words that have powerful meaning. No, I am not giving up writing – I can’t do that, too many characters in my peabrain!
What I am giving up is many extensions of me. The Virtual Bookcase is one of the things I am giving up. I need the time to write. I have showcased and shared over 600 authors and their books. This takes a lot of my free time and I truly feel I have to stop. I will no longer host author interviews on this blog. Sad, but necessary.
Whitefoam, my crime novel has taken off well and truly. My dectective, Morag Blake, has even gifted me the opening chapter of book II, the working title is apparently, Folklore.
I recently visited Redgrave, the Suffolk village where Maggie’s Child is set. I’ve never been but felt as if I knew the place inside and out when I set foot on the churchyard. It was an exciting day out. I leave you with a few photographs. A young woman paid me the biggest compliment recently, she said the images were exactly as she imagined when she read the book. I had described it as she imagined. It did surprise me considering I researched via the Internet from Cyprus.

At last I’ve brought them together …
