Well, that didn't work out so well...

I would feel a lot worse about not having posted anything in nearly a month if anything had happened in said month, which it hasn't. This is why I don't get Facebook. I would have to be making up so many things to make regular updates that I wouldn't have time to do anything else anyway, even if there was something to do, which there clearly isn't. Surely all the more reason to not be saying anything about it. Anyway, I do have some news today which is that I have finished my book, Dolci di Lov...

Day Two of Aforementioned Attempt

Well, absolutely nothing has happened since yesterday although I have been hard at work on my new novel, Dolci di Love, otherwise known as As Yet Untitled. As the word "dolci" might suggest, it's about sweet things in Italy, with a bit of love (and heartbreak thrown in). I thought I had finished it earlier this year but it turns out I was wrong, so now I am due to really finish it this time by the end of the month and then it will come out in the US this time next year. The good thing about it ...

Evidence of Author Attempting to Keep Website Up-dated

OK, so here's the situation. I can't manage facebook or twitter. They're just a bridge too far. I'm still getting over not being able to use a quill for Heaven's sake. Still, I do spend all day long on my computer and I do have this website so I am going to start a small experiment whereby I will undertake to update this blog in the interests of finding out what happens as a result. My fear is that I have nothing to update. Oh look, there you go, my fear has already been realized. There isn't ...

Yikes, is that the time?

I'm astonished that it has been four months since I last posted anything. Where does the time go? This certainly explains my wrinkles but not much else. Since October, we have moved back to New Zealand from the Gold Coast of Australia. I loved it there so was a little bit bitter to begin with but now that summer is here, finally, I'm cheering up. And thawing out. Also we had an amazing trip to New York for Christmas and New Year. I'll tell you more about that when I get the time to write it up...

And The Winners Are...

The kind people at Shingle Peak wines have made their decision about the five lucky winners of a 6-pack of wine. For those of you who know me and didn't win, I had nothing to do with the judging! For those of you who know me and did win, I had nothing to do with the judging! Winners, if the email address you gave me on your post was correct, you'll be hearing from Shingle Peak in the next few days regarding delivery of your wine.
