Gwen's Free Book - Part Four

For anyone following Gwen Kirkwood's great family saga series, the final part, Home to Lochandee, is now offered free until Wednesday 16th. This story sees a new generation of Maxwells hoping to farm at Wester Rullion in the 1980s. As always, nothing runs smoothly. You can find it on Amazon UK and Amazon US.

If you haven't already heard, Best Magazine is running a Christmas Short Story Contest at the moment. The closing date is 26h November and there's a prize of £1000 plus publication in the Christmas magazine. You need to collect vouchers to enter: either download them from the website or cut from the weekly magazine. Good luck if you enter!

This week, I'm preparing a talk on e-publishing and all the current choices open to us for a Writers' Day being held at Inverness on Saturday. Really looking forward to it and I'll be able to write on the long train journey both ways!

To keep me going while writing novels, I've had a short story Highly Commended in the Ifanca Helene James Competition and an article published in Scottish Home & Country Magazine. Next week, the focus will be on the release of Midwinter Masquerade and all its attendant promotion!

Have a good week,

Congratulations on your short story success, Rosemary, and on your published article too. It really does help to have these coming through during the long process of getting a novel into shape. Good luck with your e-publishing talk, which I'm sure will be a great success too.

It's a lovely wet day here today for staying inside and working on novel revisions! xxx
