I have been invited
to give a talk to the local WI on February 14th and I am determined to have a
book in my hand on that night. I also hope to be dressed as a land girl, in
khaki dungarees, green pullover and boots. Don't laugh. I know land girls were
young, but I'm going to do it anyway, because it'll be fun.
Foxden Acres has been uploaded to Kindle and lulu books, by
the wonderful Rebecca Emin today, Feb 8th. No books - Kindle or paperback - yet.
The author's copy has been ordered so, after I've given it a final proofread,
Foxden Acres will go live. We're still on track for next Saturday. I can't
believe it? After all these years, Foxden Acres will soon be in the public
domain. I'm so happy. My face is aching from smiling.
I feel an article about King Richard III coming on. It was confirmed today (Feb 5th) that the remains found under a car park in the city of Leicester are those of Richard III who was killed at the Battle of Bosworth. Leicester is 12 miles away from my home town of Lutterworth, so it's a must.
