#NaNoWriMo Final Day

Visit my NaNo pages for my past attempts click HERE

I wish everyone the greatest of luck for the final day of the National Novel Writing Month that is Novembers NaNoWriMo. I started out with good intentions but then (Drum Roll) I ended up publishing a rhythmical story for younger readers or the young at heart like myself. ‘Young Ebenezer ~ A New Christmas Carol’ All the royalties are going to my local hospital Wye Valley NHS Trust children’s ward in Hereford to help buy them table tennis equipment as a gift for Christmas (no one wants to spend Christmas in hospital especially not children).

Young Eb review

So because I did not finish this years NaNoWriMo I decided I would have a new focus and do a sponsored write-in so #WriteABook was born I am looking for people to sponsor me just £2 per person and if 500 lovely folk will help encourage this writing then not only will we be getting the equipment for the children but also a new book for next year’s appeal ‘The Born Sleeping Appeal’ again Wye Valley NHS Trust.

But first I need to #SpreadTheWord Please help by supporting me on Thunderclap a social media platform that will hopefully help me reach out to more kind people. Click the image below

Thank you one and all let’s reach out and get this equipment to help cheer the children this Christmas.

Trust and Give Thanks

This is a beautiful saying and I just had to share. Happy Thanksgiving Day to all who celebrate it. 🙂

An ordinary favor we do for someone or any compassionate reaching out may seem to be going nowhere at first, but may be planting a seed we can’t see right now. Sometimes we need to just do the best we can and then trust in an unfolding we can’t design or ordain.”  ~ Sharon Salzberg

Wishing you a harvest of blessings, good health and good times. Happy Thanksgiving day America.

#YoungEbenezer Book release for Christmas

All Royalties to go to my local Hospital Charity

171113 Final Cover small

Young Ebenezer
A New Christmas Carol

This story is a seasonal treat, a modern, lyrical re-telling of the Charles Dickens classic – ‘A Christmas Carol.’

The book is specially designed for families to share during the Holiday Season, or for young competent readers to try for themselves. This book is a beautiful gift to treasure, with full colour images on every page.

Eb is a spoilt child who really is not one for caring, and he certainly hates sharing. He is watched over by a very special guardian – the family’s ancient longcase clock, who is bestowed with magic. His name is Grandfather Time.

On Christmas Eve Grandfather Time decides he must teach the boy a lesson. So he calls upon his friends; the Ghosts of Past, Present and Future and with lessons to learn he brings forth the first tutor – a little golden-red King Charles spaniel, called Miss Ruby Heart.

Will this unlikely pair be able to teach the boy the error of his ways? Or will he be doomed to be a scruffy, lonely teenager stuck forever in his own little world?

It already has an Amazon 5* review

The supernatural story of the Blue Men of the Scottish sea @MarieLaval1

I really love old folklore expecially selkies and merfolk, this is a wonderful blog I urge you go check it out 🙂

Helena Fairfax

It’s a great please to welcome romance author, friend and fellow Romantic Novelists’ Association member Marie Laval today. I got to know Marie through my first novel, The Silk Romance, which is set in Lyon, which is where Marie comes from. I first interviewed Marie here on my blog almost five years ago, and since then we have become good friends. 

Marie’s wonderful historical romance, Dancing for the Devil, has jut been re-released and she’s here today to tell us some of the supernatural history behind the Scottish setting.

Bienvenue, Marie!

I really enjoyed reading tales and legends from Scotland whilst researching for my historical romance DANCING FOR THE DEVIL, which is mostly set in the far north of the Highlands, and which has just been re-released by Áccent Press.

My heroine’s first experience…
