Celebrations for Friday The Thirteenth

Actually, I'm not superstitious about the date. It's just another day, (she says with her fingers crossed).

After the flurry of booty last week there have been no prizes or surprises this week. I've worked hard to clear the decks, though, because tomorrow I'm off to Birmingham Literature Festival for a couple of workshops in the Library.

Coming soon!
One of the main jobs today has been to deliver a manuscript to the printers. After a lot of to-ing and fro-ing and coming painfully close to getting a short story collection accepted by a conventional publisher, I have decided to go it alone. You can be sure I'll let you know when it's available.

Right, that's it. I'm off for an evening of mindless TV. Have a good weekend, folks.


  1. I'll be interested to hear how you go with your short story collection as I have one too. It seems you have to be a big name in order for trad. publishers to want to publish your short story collection. I want mine out between novels 5 and 6 and if I can't hook a publisher I might go it alone as well. I'll stay tuned. Good luck.

    1. I'm going to pop it on Amazon as a Kindle and POD title, but I'm getting some printed in real life, too. I'm wondering now if I should have gone the whole hog and got an ISBN, but it's too late this time around. I'll certainly let you know if I sell them all!
