Horses and volcanoes [Mar. 30th, 2014|09:28 am]

Not actually at the same time, fortunately.

I do still visit LJ occasionally to catch up on what my LJ friends are doing, but when I get around to blogging (which is not very often), I use Blogspot. While reading a wonderful horsey post here recently, it occurred to me that one or two of you might enjoy hearing about my own recent horsey outing:

The volcano was a peaceful one:

I'll try to remember to post a link from time to time!

A book review that had me dancing [Aug. 27th, 2009|09:11 am]

Yes, literally dancing around the room. Fortunately no one was here to see.

I submitted "Sentence of Marriage" to a review site recently, and this morning their review was posted. Perceptive, generous, and responding to the elements of writing that mean the most to me. The reviewer's reaction to Susannah would be enough on its own to have me cheering. I'm gobsmacked in the best way.

It's been a while [Jun. 4th, 2009|01:28 pm]

I haven't felt motivated to post in ages. Hopefully I haven't completely disappeared from the collective consciousness.

Three of my books now appear on Amazon. I was far more excited about this than cool logic should suggest. The mark-up makes it unlikely that anyone will buy them there. But there's something about having one's work appear in the catalogue of such a high-profile retailer.

They're still much cheaper on Lulu, and for downloads the best option is Smashwords, which has a range of formats (including Kindle and Sony Reader).

Our digital camera seems to have gone phut, so we'll be buying another one soon. Probably another small one, as it's convenient for our unsettled mode of living.

I've made lots of crabapple jelly recently, and though I say it myself it's delicious. It's also rather beautiful. I'll see if I can get a picture (though see above regarding the camera).

It's a beautiful sunny day. We had a frost this morning, and are enjoying the sort of crisp sunshine that generally follows. I must go out and start enjoying it.
