I have been busy though with both my reading and my writing.
I’ve read some wonderful books over recent weeks. The Year of Marvellous Ways was a true find, which I read back to back with Val McDermid’s version of Northanger Abbey. Dear old Henry Tilney has now ousted Fitzwilliam in my affections, perhaps for all time.
The Wedding Reject Table by Angela Britnell was a light fun read that I raced through one evening followed by Susan Wiggs latest, who can always be relied upon for interesting plots. I’m now half way through Catroina Ward’s Rawblood, which I predict will be a huge hit for this new writer. It’s a dark gothic mystery, romance that reminds me a little of Wilkie Collins Woman in White, but I can’t say for sure where it’s going to end up.
I have two more books lined up on my Kindle, one by Jane Lovering called ‘I don’t want to talk about it’ who can be relied upon for intricate plotting and Alison May’s follow up to just released Midsummer Dreams, entitled Sweet Nothing – but they are going to have to wait a little as I’m back in the writing saddle.
I gave myself a couple of days off but I spent the morning in the local library stacking up on reference books and have put pen to paper.
More later but the coffee has perked!
