I’m a NaNo Winner!

Winner's Virtual badge - NaNoWriMo 2017

I have validated my word count for this year’s National Novel Writing Month – just over 52,000 words! This is just the start, however. Since I never write in the right order, I now have to sort out the scenes and start the editing. That is the most tedious part, so there is still a long way to go. Then I have to get a proof-reader and beta readers, etc, etc.

Still, every journey begins with one step and this is a pretty large one!

The new novel is called Distant Echoes. Watch this space for a preview of the cover!

Rose’s Playlist (13) – Witches’ Brew by Janie Jones

Rose experiments with Wicca, helped by her friend, Frances, who is a devotee. She finds she enjoys the relaxing meditation she experiences in a Wicca house in Canewdon, Essex, even though she knows Richard would not approve of ‘witchcraft’. That is why I chose the title ‘Witches’ Brew’ by Janie Jones  (click link to see video) for this song. It is a sixties one hit wonder, which I loved when I was a child.

Another Great Amazon Review for ‘Dickon’s Diaries’!

Cover of 'Dickon's Diaries'

When Susan Lamb and I wrote Dickon’s Diaries, we weren’t sure how it would be received. It is purposely written in mock mediaeval speech which we knew some might find difficult and we wondered whether everyone would ‘get’ our sense of humour. Well, so far we have had one 1-star review (which mentions the mediaeval speech) and twelve 5-star ones!

Here is the latest one:

By RhiannonsWheel on 22 Mar. 2017
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
“Such a funny book. No one usually writes humour and Richard III…and in cod-Middle English, no less. Frances Lovell’s exploits in particular crack me up. Different and amusing.”
