Pan's Whisper and Forget Me Not.

Best Blogger Tips
I was doing my grocery shopping when a lady I know stopped to congratulate me on my new book. At first I was a little stunned. How did she know I was doing the final edits on my next book?
Then it dawned on me she meant Pan's Whisper, which has just come out and is about to be launched. I quickly regrouped and thanked her for her support, and explained why I was slow to react.
The writing process is a long one and quite often when a book is released, authors are up to their necks in their next work. That's why we can appear a little vague when you are kind enough to comment.

While I'm doing bits and pieces for the launch of Pan's Whisper, I'm working also with my editor on my next book, which is due out in April, 2012. This book is called Forget Me Not - more about it later.
In the meantime, it's time to launch the one I finished work on about five months ago.
If you are free December, 9, I'd love to see you at our launch for Pan's Whisper, and I promise not to be vague!

Time to take stock...

Best Blogger Tips
This morning when I sat at my desk, I looked out the window and marvelled at the beauty of the day.
And then I thought of friends, reeling after a heartbreaking tragedy on the weekend.
Six lives, gone.
Countless friends and families devastated.
A cruel, cruel accident that is impossible to comprehend.
Life is fickle and heartbreaking and again I am reminded of the importance of gratitude and of making the most of every moment.
I am grateful for:
my daughter's laugh
blue skies
my husband's sense of humor
honey eaters resting on the fence outside my window
my niece's wicked giggle
my friends
my family
my home
my life...
