It’s Sunday evening. The sky is washed with eggshell shades fading to blue, my cheeks still tingling from being outside. The working week awaits… and yet, the working weekend has just finished.
I’m currently deep into the final edit and formatting of Under Stone, book four in my Ambeth series, with a view to publishing very soon. This last push has been accompanied by lining up some associated promotion and deals, so it’s been a very busy time of late (which has made me a not-very-good blogger at the moment).
That being said, you may have also noticed a couple of new things on my blog. One is the mailing list sign-up. If you do sign up, I promise not to inundate you. Rather, I’ll just send through a newsletter once in a while with publishing updates, sneak peeks at upcoming books, the occasional competition and a few other goodies.
The other new thing is a shiny badge proclaming me a member of the 2018 Bloggers Bash Committee. I agreed (was talked into) joining the committee at this year’s Bash, and I’m enjoying being part of the team! Watch this space (and my newsletter) for news about next year’s event.
And now it’s back to formatting once more. The sky is now dark, the nights drawing in early. I don’t mind though – autumn, and the lead up to Christmas, are my favourite times of the year. I love the cold air and crisp leaves underfoot, the sparkle of lights and Christmas songs, good food and warm jumpers, Halloween treats and Bonfire night.
Wishing you all a good week, wherever you are! 🙂
What’s the date for next year’s bash? I shall endeavour to make it next time, it sounds like a blast.
It’s on May 19th and yes, definitely a blast! Hope you can make it 🙂
I’ve blocked it out in my diary. Unless something urgent takes over, I plan on coming 😀
Yay! Fantastic 🙂
BTW I just started my series of photo blogs on the Outer Hebrides tour though it wasn’t until the end that we found serious quantities of standing stones.
Oh, I’ve been checking in to see if you’d posted anything – I’m looking forward to seeing them! Did you have a good trip?
Yes and no. Some of it was fantastic, but some was disappointing. At least it varied!
At least it did! And I’m glad it wasn’t all disappointing 🙂
Congratulations (commiserations? 🙂 ) on your proclamation. 😀
😀 Thank you!
Hoping your week is happy and productive! 🙂
Thanks, Linda! And the same to you 🙂
Sending you sparklies for your editing and formatting…with hugs. X
Aw, thanks, Jane 🙂 Sending hugs and sparkles back to you x

I love this time of year, too. Everything about it. I’ve been a not-very-good blogger recently, too. And I’m okay with that. I’m also okay with you being a not-very-good blogger because you have a life outside the internet, too, even though we all love you here. 🙂 And…you’re writing. (Editing/formatting…whatever.) Very excited for you! Have a lovely week. 🍁 🍂
I was playing the how-many-times-can-we-use-the-word-‘too’-in-a-comment game.
😀 You did well!
Thank you, that’s lovely 🙂 I hope life is treating you well and you’re writing too. As you say, life outside blogland takes over at times, even though I love it here. Wishing you a lovely week too 🙂 And we can be not-very-good-bloggers together!
