Where to begin? It’s been another crazy month. I have begun another book, apart from the children’s one I am writing. This one will mix the present day and the past. I have no title, my first three chapters are planned out but beyond is a mystery to myself and any future readers. Could it be a time-slip? It’s possible. Stay tuned.
The next four months are going to be horrendously busy. On Monday, I am speaking to the Townswomen’s Guild in Chichester on the theme of Secrets and Lies and how that has led to writing a saga spanning four generations. I will let you know how it goes.
I have also been busy with planning for our events at the Chichester Festival. We are running five events. Promote That Book; A Glimpse of Life on writing winning short stories, the one opposite, a Ghost Tour of Chichester and a creative even for children.
Yesterday, I interviewed the lovely, Beryl Kingston, for a radio show. As a successful author of thirty books with a million sold, she is the most delightful interviewee and full of stories. She has thirteen more up her sleeve which should get her to her centenary. You can read all about her here.
If that weren’t enough, I have written a short story for the Chindi book of Christmas Stories set in Sussex which we are compiling. Entries are due in by May 31st. They will then be judged blind and around 15 chosen. I hope the book will be available for sale by the autumn. Which cover do you prefer?
