I know, I know – it’s been a little while between posts. I’ve been focusing on a massive editing job, a final push to get The Last Raven out to my editor by the end of this month… and I managed to finish yesterday!
Just in time, too, as tomorrow I’m heading off on an adventure – a trip to New York, then Toronto, then Boston, with a side trip to Salem and a drive along the New England coast. Oh, and I’m doing it all in two weeks.
I’m really looking forward to it, though. Not just because I’ll get some more material for my Wednesday Wanders, but also because I’ve never been to New York, Boston, Salem or any of New England, and I love seeing new places. I plan on seeking out the partner to Cleopatra’s needle in Central Park, and have a tour of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island booked, just for starters. I’m also looking forward to finding out more about the sad story of the Salem ‘witches’, as well as seeing the New England coast.
I can’t wait to see Toronto again – I went to high school and university in that part of the world, and will be catching up with family and old friends, as well as being a bit of a tourist – well, it’s been a few years (decades) since I’ve been there.
And when I return, I’ll be back to it. There are more books to write and blog posts to share, plus the Bash will be less than a month away…
See you soon!
Have a fabulous time globe trotting friend! Hope you get some wonderful ideas for stories too 🙂
Thanks, Lucy 🙂 x
Oh wow! Yeay! Talk about a brilliant adventure ahead! Have a fab time, Helen! I cannot wait to read all about it! Please say hello to Toronto for me! Cher xo
Thanks, Cher – we head there tomorrow and I definitely will 🙂 Loving New York!
Ah, thanks wonderful, Helen!!! I’m so happy you are having a great time!! xo
Have a brilliant trip Helen.

Thanks, David! Hugs to you too x
Where on the New England coast are you going? I ask since I spend a lot of time on the New England coast. (I’m currently on Cape Cod, south of Boston.) Not the greatest season for it, as spring is usually cold and wet on the coast, but there are some beautiful places. have a good trip!
Hi Trent – we’re staying in Salem and then taking a couple of days to drive back to New York 🙂 Yes, the weather hasn’t been great so far, but am still really enjoying being here 🙂
I’m glad you’re having a good time. Yeah, the weather has been awful (a couple of nasty storms just went through, scaring the dogs). Early spring is not the time to be in New England…. I was on Cape Cod over the weekend, but am back up in New Hampshire. If you have time, Cape Cod might be nice, though not much to see if you don’t have time. If you skip it, hitting Newport RI and following the RI coast to Connecticut might be nice.
So jealous. I’ve always wanted to go to Salem. I am getting to go back to New Orleans though. I’ll send some voodoo thoughts your way. (Good ones.)
Thanks, Craig 🙂 I’ll send some good witchy thoughts your way too. Hope you enjoy New Orleans – that’s somewhere I’d love to visit one day!
I’m green with envy. Enjoy yourself!!!
🙂 Thank you x
Helen! Enjoy! I’ve always wanted to do a New England trip as well.
Thanks, Kristin – yes, I’m looking forward to it!
How wonderful, Helen! Great going with your edits and I look forward to seeing the pics from this holiday! Enjoy! 🙂
Thanks, Louise 🙂
Have a wonderful time adventuring, Helen ❤ Xxx
Thanks, Jane! It’s been fab so far 🙂
Wow! What an awesome adventure! Enjoy it and I can’t wait to hear about it.
Thanks, Steve! It’s been fab so far 😊
I can’t wait to hear about your travels! I have ancestors who were Salem “witches”. My teens have it on both sides.
Oh really? That’s so interesting. Salem was a lovely place, yet there was a sadness there, and a definite desire for lessons to be learned after what happened there. Oh, and there were loads of witches 🙂 Will write it up soon, so many posts to write about this trip!
I look forward to reading about your travels. I have recently been reading up on Salem.
Thanks Robbie 🙂 I’ve just got home and am still recovering – such a whirlwind trip! I will definitely be writing about Salem, such an interesting place…
I’m so looking forward to seeing all your posts about this now that you’re back… What was your favourite thing?
Hi Suzie! Sorry, jetlag has hit hard and I’ve not been back into blogland yet. I have LOADS of things to write about though – as for a favourite thing, I’m not really sure. We saw so much! A highlight was seeing the New York skyline for the first time, and I also found Salem to be though-provoking…
