Hi Guys :)
Well as you can see I've altered my website, please have a look around and let me know what you think of it. I decided I needed a bit of a change, and well, everything just mushroomed from there :). You know how it is. One small change seems to have a knock on effect, and you end up with something totally different. But it's not so bad, it's kind of growing on me. :) Like a weed :)
Well, my two minute change ended up being four hours. No doubt someone with more experience would have done it in a half hour, but this is me we're talking about, the complete tech idiot.
I do like the more cozy look, somehow it has a warmer effect than the old one, but that was one of the things I was aiming for. It's not all finished yet. I'm pretty sure I'll be adding and taking away, at least until I think it's as good as it's going to get for someone like me :)
Right! On to the charity book. Most of the stories are in now, and we've semi agreed on a title, which was almost impossible to do. My friend AR advised me to try getting some of the virtual book tour people to help out with getting noticed, and as soon as I have a full list of authors I'll be looking into that. Something none of us thought about, but AR, being as brilliant as she is, is always full of ideas. Of course, the next thing will be local news papers, and local radio stations. Who knows, if your in the UK you might actually see, or hear, about an author in your areas involvement :).
And last, but by no means least, I have managed to get the first few pages of book three done :). It's not as much as I'd like, but with everything else going on it's been slow going. Maybe when I get my workstation built it'll be a little easier, because then I can just sit down and do any time I feel like it :). Sounds real good to me :)
I guess I shouldn't forget that I also have to run a home, look after my granddaughter and son, and keep hubby going to. Whoever said a homemakers job was easy, clearly has no idea :).
Ah well! when Amazon start selling extra hours in the day, I'll be the first in line :)
Well, I'm off for now. I have to catch up on some things before hitting the sack, and it's already 1-30 am. No early night for me, but there will be a 2 year old waking me up early in the morning. Wish me luck :)
Take care all, and I'll speak to you soon,
I am a wife, mother, and grandmother, and I live in Wales in the U.K.
