I haven’t posted any song titles for ages, so I thought I would do so today. The next one is number 14, Magic by Pilot (a 70s pop hit) which I thought was appropriate because in this scene Rose is trying to formulate a Wiccan spell which will bring Richard back to her again.

Although I have had a book page on Facebook for some time, I have only just got around to creating an Author Page – better late than never, I suppose!
Anyway, please have a look and ‘like/follow’ the page for updates and news about my books and stories here!
Here is a link to my interview for the Ricardian Chronicle.
There are two new Kindle countdown deals on:
Richard Liveth Yet – until 27th (US) / 28th (UK) April only 99c/99p to download
Dickon’s Diaries – until 30th April also only 99c (US)/99p (UK)!!
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.

Rose has a psychic reading from each of the other members of her friend, Lynne’s, circle. She can understand some of what is said, but not all of it. She leaves not much the wiser, but a conversation at the end gives her a new idea…
I chose the song ‘Too Bad’ by Nickelback (click the link to watch video) for this scene, because Richard would have considered this witchcraft and thence a sin, but also because it was too bad that Rose didn’t really get much out of the session.

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:
Keeps you Laughing!
Desperate, Rose resorts to psychic mediumship to try to contact Richard – after all he would technically be dead by the twenty first century. She visits her friend’s psychic circle and has a message from a mysterious woman with hazel brown eyes.
Of course, this title had to be Van Morrison’s ‘Brown Eyed Girl’ – such a great song. Click to see the video.

It’s a year since Richard informed Rose he wouldn’t be coming back to the Major Oak, where they have agreed to meet once a year. Despite this, Rose returns there, hoping against hope that he has changed his mind, but to no avail. Depressed, she is at a loss as to what to do, but Laura makes a suggestion which leads to Rose formulating a plan…
I have used ‘I’m Still Waiting‘ by Diana Ross to illustrate this scene. Click to see the video.

Laura tries to comfort Rose after Richard’s bombshell, but she cannot control her see-sawing emotions and she begins to question her own worth. Why do the men in her life leave her?
I thought the great song, ‘Stop Your Sobbing‘ by The Pretenders was just right to portray this scene. Click to see the video.
