Summer Break and Submissions

Well, that's me getting all set to head off for a summer break - just the final washing, ironing and packing to do! Fortunately, we're remaining in Britain this year so don't have to catch flights or worry about excess baggage, and that makes a difference to stress levels.

The photo is one of the places where we hope to be in a couple of days time - some of you might recognise it or know where we're going, the others can guess until I return! I also enjoy having a complete break from the Internet at this time of year and won't be seeking access, except to perhaps check emails very occasionally, if possible. One of the advantages of not having a phone with Internet access is that I have an enforced rest from it. No doubt it will help my thinking time and I'll be raring to get back to everything soon enough.

Here are a few links to explore until the next post.

Novels/novellas Submissions: Prism Book Group (various genres); Entangled (Holiday Magic); Aurora Metro (Fiction Prize); Escape Publishing (romance); Samhain (horror)

Fiction Comps: Ifanca Helene James (story); Aesthetica (story - pricy fee); Morgen Bailey (flash fiction); Irish Writers and Carousel Writers Centre (various); Greenhouse Agency (children's/YA funny prize)

See you soon,

Wherever it is, it looks lovely, Rosemary. I'll be away in a weeks time to gorgeous Greece and unlike you, will have to contend with the flight which I hate. Have a wonderful internet free break and I hope the weather's nice for you.

Have a wonderful time, Rosemary, walking on that beach and climbing up to the castle!! The weather can only get better!!!

I think an enforced break from the internet is a wonderful thing and I hope you have a lovely time. I don't know where it is, but it looks absolutely perfect :-) x

Just popped in to say thank you! I can see I'll have to be dragged from the computer tonight.
Have a lovely time, Wendy.

That looks like a beautiful destination, Rosemary, and you have been so busy that it must be time for you to have a peaceful break from everything.
I hope you have a wonderful holiday and I'm looking forward to hearing about it and finding out where it is!
Many thanks for all the very useful competition details. Take care and enjoy every moment. xxx

It looks lovely, Rosemary. Somewhere in Scotland, perhaps? Wherever it is, have a wonderful time and enjoy your break.
