First author interview – thanks MMB

First ever (online) author interview – supposed to be featuring in tomorrow’s edition of the local paper – but not counting chickens yet on that one.

Delighted though to have talked to MM Bennetts – you can catch up with the interview on her blog

(Though I don’t think my uni friends would recognise her description of my St Andrews days!)

First Gallery Photograph.

A steep learning curve for me here – I’ve just uploaded my first photo to Gallery – Winning the Historical Fiction section of the Harper Collins / Alan Titchmarsh People’s Novelist competition was my first step towards finding a publisher. How I felt at the time is related on a guest blog for the Writers Workshop

How I feel now – I’m 100% sure that the various competition wins and listings were a major contributory factor in my achieving publication and well worth the time and effort I gave to them. (And sometimes the one you think least likely may be the one you win…)

A huge thanks to Richard who ‘captured’ the stock photography for me and to Annette who sent me a quick guide to Word Press.
