Newsletter and Amazon Countdown

Where, oh where did the last few weeks go? So much for me posting more regularly! I do have the excuse that I was adjudicating a short story competition for which I had to provide a written critique for each entry.

I really enjoy doing this but it is time consuming. I've adjudicated many over the years for other writing groups and for the Scottish Association of Writers conference and people are used to me giving a full critique! I must say, the winning story was one of the best I have read for a long time and I was not surprised to hear the author had been published before. A good standard overall.

Husband and I took the chance to have a couple of days revisiting our old area in the Scottish west coast - a whirlwind tour of some of our favourite spots. Then we stopped off in Glasgow on the way back home to have lunch at our favourite Chinese restaurant. Since it was the school break here, we also took our granddaughter out for a day to Edinburgh which was tiring but fun.

To get me back into the writing world, I've just sent out my Autumn newsletter which has a free read of one of the short stories from my End of the Road collection. If you wish to subscribe to the newsletter, just pop your name in the box at the side of the blog and once joined, you'll receive a small short story collection, Romantic Encounters.

From Monday 22nd until Friday 26th October inclusive, my two Regency novels, Dangerous Deceit and Midwinter Masquerade, will be only 99p (99c) each on Amazon countdown, in the UK and US.

I'll try and keep more up to date here, but since it's coming up to my birthday, I'll be out galivanting here and there enjoying lunches out with family and friends!

Getting out while the weather is reasonable is good for all writers, and being able to visit favourite places is lovely too.

I can certainly recommend both Dangerous Deceit and Midwinter Masquerade. I have both on my Kindle and enjoyed them both.x

Hi Rosemary. The feedback you gave the writers the other night was great and clearly much appreciated by them. I've just read Samain again and wish I had come up with something as good for my homework! Catriona

It's hard work fitting everything in at times, isn't it? Have a lovely birthday and enjoy the gallivanting.

It's not gallivanting, it's exploring the world to keep the creative juices flowing. Have fun!

Rosemary Gemmell said...

Thanks so much for your kind comment, Carol - appreciate you reading the books!

Thanks, Catriona - that's lovely of you to say so! It was great to have your support too on the evening.

Sometimes procrastination gets the upper hand, Patsy! Thank you - I do enjoy getting about.

You're quite right, Julia! At least I write on my train journey to Glasgow.
