Things are SO fiddly around here. I’ve heard lots of nice things about Blogger…so have just set up home here. I will still check in here – there are so many fantastic blogs! I’m just going to try writing elsewhere…the changes here have put me off writing, really.
Ok…it sounds crackly, crinkly and a little bit cheesey. Aren’t we all?
Here I am, reading from my eBook ‘Spring Heeled Jack’, a story for young ones.
As a result of a powerful curse, no chair that Harold sat on could ever be comfortable. He deeply regretted that weekend in Tacoma. —Richard F. Yates

Well – I am thrilled! I have my first Amazon book review. Wow. Someone has kindly left me some extremely thoughtful feedback. Thank you!
Well, I mean.
One of the blogs I follow is by someone who is clearly in some sort of debt. Though we’ve never really chatted, I follow their blog and give the occasional ‘like’.
I noticed that they had asked for financial help from readers. They are based in the US, and I so happened to have made a miniscule amount of money from my writing. It was just sitting in my PayPal account, in dollars. I sent it on and said ‘sorry it’s not much, but I hope it helps’, along with my blog name.
I didn’t receive any acknowledgement for this or even a thank you. I thought that was a shame.
Logging on today, I can see they are still trying to rinse their readers for cold hard cash.
Oh, well. Lesson learned!
Hello! Long time no post.
Thing is, I’m now at university! I know! I’m 35, and have started my adult education. I went straight to work when I was 16…I’m now finally following the path I should have followed. I’ve taken the long way around.
I’m not sure how much I can share on here – my new career is bound by professional standards. We’re not allowed to say much on social media.
This should give a clue…
From experience, the gingerbread people are the best fun! http://hub.me/ajMtZ
