So ..I have written a book for kids, what next?

The simple answer would or should be, write another one. And there are five or six books written but not edited sitting in a neat queue somewhere in my desk.

However, I am stuck on the marketing and shouting about the first one.

If I constantly blog about it, – am I seeming too pushy? I dither on this question. But you guys are truthfully the only ones who read my ramblings, and for that I am extremely grateful.  So please let me know if I am pushing it a bit.

Blogging, twittering, FB and G+ are very time-consuming events. Which limits time for other important stuff. The only one in my house who loves to see me head for the computer is – Bob.

He assumes his best-loved position. Sorry there are two:



Everyone else groans, (including Ellie) as they know I will be superglued to the seat until I have set up x amount of promotional posts.

And lastly for today my promotional push is:

The Runaway Schoolhouse is on Kindle for €0.99 ($0.99) for the next week, in the hope that a few reviews will float or clunk (be thrown) my way.

The purpose of the reviews for me is to help discover the fate of the other books gathering dust in my desk. Do I continue to publish or simply to blog?




Bob’s Diary: Home alone

It was a busy week for the two women which meant I was left home and alone.

My idea of heaven.



Plenty of time to sit and think or snooze while they walked the countryside or sat around in a jeep drinking tea.


Maria did apologize to me and she does to you, for not posting any entertaining pictures of me doing silly things but – truth is I am enjoying the rest.



Get up and tell yourself you can do it

For every writer, artist, photographer, entrepreneur who is struggling, keep going….
