We seem to be having some seriously hot temperatures at the moment and as I write it is 36.4c in the shade in our garden. But what makes the heat unbearable is the hot air, which remains long after the sun has gone down and throughout the night.
We are around 70 miles from the Moroccan coast so if the wind direction is from the east or south we have a amazing hot winds. To give you some idea how these winds feel, it is like having your fan oven on maximum temperature then opening the door just as the thermostat clicks off! The heat that rushes out is not unlike the hot air that has been circulating around the island this last week. Hence why I am in my office writing a post with the doors firmly closed and ceiling fan whirring away, and no, we don’t have air-co!
Though for the tourists who have arrived on the island for the summer holidays, they are very happy indeed! Perfect beach weather!
Despite the heat, the week has been another busy one. On the Famous Five Plus front, there have been three great Indie authors join the Group, bringing the numbers to 27. FFP is truly international with authors from Australia, USA, Canada, UK, Italy, Portugal & Qatar. There is an amazing list of titles from these great writers from thrillers, memoirs, humour, sagas, war, Young Adult, fantasy and more. FFP really has something for every reader.
On my book front, Sometimes It Happens… should be available in paperback by the end of August, making this B.R.A.G Medallion Honouree available in Kindle and paperback.
My fourth novel, title yet to be confirmed, mainly because I haven’t agreed on one yet... sigh, is progressing well as the word count nears 80,000, though the end is still a few more chapters away! The story is set in 1965 in the north of England and I will reveal more as soon as I’ve written the two most important words: The End.
It looks like our hot weather will continue and so must my writing! So whatever your week has been like I hope you found time to sit in the garden, chill and read a good book.
Have a fabulous day and thanks for stopping by to catch up.
