This & That!

What a week is has been, for a start it is sizzling hot down here, temps in the low 30c and that is in the shade!

Before I get too carried away, I want to welcome Susan Livingstone another Associate Reader at, who has added her name to my list of fabby Associate Readers, I now have 6 great ARs. Please go along to her Blog, across the pond, and say, hi!

This week (Thursday 8th) is publication day for fellow author at Sue Watson with her debut novel, Fat Girls & Fairy Cakes. You can read all about Sue on her author page at

Putting on my editor hat, I've written another edition of The Fizz, so if you have time please stroll along and see what or who I've been gossiping about this week!

The other day I read Lou Graham's wonderful review on Satchfield Hall and I admit to crying... sob! You can read why I needed a tissue or two

Today, I saw another new 5 star review on Amazon for Sometimes It Happens.... Thank you Dot from the UK.

In between everything else, I've been busy editing with my wonderful editor, Jo Field. We are storming through Magnolia House. My lovely story is still the same, my characters have not changed, but it now has Jo's special sparkle.
Very soon I will revealing a new cover design ready for the re-laucnh later this year.

That's it folks, as alwasy, big thanks for stopping by, I love to see you and I hope this time, I've not bored you to sleep.... yawn! I'm away to edit!

I see you're keeping busy, Pauline. We've been in the 30C's here, too. Our average for this time of year in Northern Alberta, Canada is 17C! We're lovin' it!

Hi Eileen great to see you here. Whow you are having strange temps there! Here we are normally around 28c this time of year, but mid 30s this last week... phew!

I'm with Eileen. Don't know how you're managing to get all this work done in such sweltering heat. I'm looking forward to reading the updated version of Magnolia House. Will it be available on Kindle? [You see! I'm finally starting to work out how to use it!]

Pauline Barclay said...

Hello Ros, you get used to it... I think! And yes, MH is available on Kindle and the new version will be too....thank you! xx
