Holiday Blues

Hi peeps,

I’m back from a great holiday with the family and have a case of the holiday blues. I’m trying to cheer myself up by looking at holidays for next year.  Who of us doesn’t do that, eh??

We went to Lanzarote, if you haven’t been then I highly recommend going.  It’s a beautiful place, and the people are very friendly.  We stayed in Mashasha, it’s about a twenty minute drive from Puerto del Carmen.  It’s a mountainous area and some of the views were amazing.  Especially at dusk, watching the sun fade behind the hills.

Okay, so I’m starting to etch the blues up a notch, and I’m also not a travel blog, so I’ll quit there and get back to the writing, that’s the one thing I have missed!

Had A Bad Day...

I woke up this morning, to discover that our bank account has been defrauded.  They got our details via an online purchase.  The dangers of shopping online!  It did happen to me once before about four years ago but that was my credit card.  This money was actually taken from my bank account, which contains our money that pays the bills, buys the food, etc. 
It makes me very angry, and also worries the heck out of me that these people could just dip their hand into my account and help themselves to our hard earned cash.
Fortunately for us the stolen money was covered by insurance and will be refunded back.  But that’s not the point.  Theft is theft.
All I can say is please be careful about who you buy from online, and ALWAYS pay using Visa/Mastercard/AMEX, so you’re covered in case of theft. 
Here’s hoping for a better day tomorrow!

Today has been a day that the people of Japan will surely never forget, and undoubtedly the rest of the world.
Mother Nature sure is peeved at the moment, and I think it’s at times like this when we need to think about how we treat each other, and the world we live in.  Maybe if we showed the world some respect, then she’d show us some back.
My heart goes out to everyone who is caught up in this terrible tragedy. x

I'm in book cover hell...

Today I've been looking at pictures for possible covers for 'The Bringer'.  Sounds exciting right?  Well it was when I thought I knew what I wanted, but then I made the foolish error of 'browsing' and after looking at reams and reams of pictures I'm feeling pretty confused! Oh well best get back to it, this covers not gonna make itself!

Hope everyone is having a lovely day :)

Virgin Blogger

Today is my first official blog.  Eeek! 

I have spent most of today setting up this webpage; several cups of coffee later and teetering on a nervous breakdown, I’m just about there! No writing has happened today and I really need to get a shift on with ‘A Single Bite’ as I’m back at work (part-time) in 4 weeks and 2 days, and counting L  Which means I’ll have less time, than I already have, to spend writing.  Best stop moaning about it and get writing then! 

I’ll keep you posted on the publication progress of 'The Bringer' and any other developments of my books as they happen.
