Taking my books to market


Sh!…don’t tell anyone…writing stories is fun. Living many lives through your characters is wonderful. Having your stories published is fantastic. Receiving positive comments from reviewers and readers is amazing.

Trying to get your books noticed in a crowded marketplace isn’t fun. So I was thrilled when another author contacted me to ask if I would be interested in doing an in-depth interview for her blog. Lynn Lawler has done some great interviews with other authors I admire, so I was pleased to be asked.

Lynn asked questions about my books, what the characters mean to me, as well as questions about my life – which I tend to think is rather uninteresting. Doing the interview though, I was surprised at how much I found I had to say.

Doing the interview was fun. A big thank-you to Lynn for helping to get the word out there about my books and here are the blog links (Lynn has two blogs):

Vindolanda, May 2015

I’ve already shared this photo on Facebook and Lynn has included it in the interview, but it’s the only one I have of me on my knees at the dig site this year. Anyone who has read the books and/or followed my ramblings on here and FB will know that one of my interests is archaeology and I’ve been fortunate to be able to pursue it with taking part in the dig at Vindolanda for the last two years. 2014 was much warmer even though I went to the site six weeks earlier. This year, May has been very cold, wet and windy. I’ve been asked for more information about the dig – so I’ve included a link to this article that features some of the most recent finds: http://www.culture24.org.uk/history-and-heritage/archaeology/art527022-archaeologists-put-roman-gateway-on-wishlist-after-finding-ancient-water-tank-at-vindolanda-fort
