Bits and pieces

4. May, 2022
Good morning, everyone. This morning has been full of surprises for me, all very wonderful, but the highlight has to be the fact that out of several thousand stories that are going to the moon one of mine has been selected for a special edition digital magazine, Gravity City Lunar Edition issue 2. I'm absolutely chuffed as well as feeling slightly emotional as this is a huge honour. At this rate I might have to pack my PJs.
Wishing everybody a great day; you might not be aiming for the moon but you might just reach it anyway

Happy Beltane (1st May) everyone. It is the celebration of spring and fire in the northern hemispere but in the south it is not really recognised as such except for the fact that it is May Day.

No celebrations here but as some of you know my writing world has been on vacation lately with just a little bit of editing and a long hard look at prior works. Not only will my middle-grade books be getting a revamp as mentioned in my last blog post, but I will be doing the same for my children's book, Natural Magic. Like everything they need a refresh. I've also got a few new story ideas together, which I'm very excited about. 

In the meantime there has been movement in my sewing room. The weather has finally decided to cool down so it's now a nice comfortable 25C instead of a scorching 35C so stitching resumes. 

Have a good one, everybody and take care. Covid seems to be doing the rounds again.

It's not an unusual thing for a book to have several different covers over a period of time. My books will not be any different. I decided at the beginning of the year to do a spring clean and a revamp. I don't know if my new approach to the covers will fit the bill, but I enjoy the process or design which is why I'm giving them a go. Only time will tell. 

In the meantime I would appreciate your thoughts on number one (pictured - Sword of Stone #2 in the Merlin's School series) Please note here that all credit always goes to the original owner/artist of the images I select. I do not take any credit for anything except putting the cover together.

Have a great day, everyone.

It's been a while getting Unbreakable Ink 2 up and going but it's finally out there ... an anthology with over 20 stories put together by Shebat Legion. My story, 'The Games We Play' is part and parcel of this publication and I'm pretty chuffed to be included. It's not every day an Australian author is accepted by an American publishing company. But there I am!

If you enjoy short stories of a different nature, please give it a try. It is an affordable read, which we - the collective - hope you enjoy. And please, kindly leave a review when you have read it.

Have a great day, everyone.

Happy new year, happy Valentine's and happy birthday to all those who celebrated. I know it's been a while but sometimes life happens. During this time I have decided to relauch my Merlin's School series with new covers and a slightly different approach.

Also, with the melding of D2D and Smashwords I have an extention to my author platform so I will be doing a bit of moving things around. This means less writing and more organsing for a while. It's not such a bad thing as one does need a break away from the muse on occasions.

So, with all that out there I will give you a glimpse of one of my new cover ideas. I would love some feedback, remembering that this series is initially aimed at 10 years plus, but has been greatly enjoyed by 'big kids' too.

Have a great weekend folks, and catch you next time.
