Happy New York!

I sent my daughter a text this morning (she’s working today) to wish her Happy New Year. It wasn’t until I got her reply saying ‘Happy New York to you too!’ that I realised predictive texting had got the better of me. Doesn’t bode well for writing during the year ahead!

Obviously what I meant was HAPPY NEW YEAR, and I wish the same to all of you.


May it be a good one filled with peace, hope, health and happiness for you all!

I don’t really know what I’m hoping for, but definitely the following:

  • The main priority is to feel healthy after  being plagued with viruses and other health issues this year.
  • Several friends died in 2015, and I would like to hold the others close to me to keep them safe.
  • I’m at a crossroads with writing, not sure what I want to do next. Have I got the energy for another novel?
  • I’d like to help The Broken Road to be at least as successful as Unravelling and The Piano Player’s Son. I must try to do some promotion, although it doesn’t come easily. My two reviews an Amazon look very lonely.

But I was thrilled to discover this review on Facebook over Christmas: I have read Lindsay Stanberry-Flynn‘s latest book – The Broken Road (in two days!) and found it to be one of my favourite books of 2015. It is the kind of book I take on holiday when I don’t want to be disturbed and can just lose myself in the plot, sub plots and characters. Lindsay’s book ticks all the boxes. Unputdownable!
Places and situations are beautiful described without being over-wordy, and images spring to life instantly. I would have loved to have written something on Amazon but the button to highlight my review wouldn’t highlight! Probably because I bought the book directly from its very accomplished author! If you fancy ending your festive holiday with a good book or, something to pack in a corner for your sunshine holiday, I totally recommend this book.

It’s so rewarding when people express their enjoyment. It makes all the hard work worthwhile.

    …a recent attempt by me to write Human Resources came out as bad language in a Chinese province, I.e. Hunan curses… And I read in yesterday’s paper that within 10 years machines will be running all aspects of our lives. Not mine they won’t. Hippy Newt Yarn to you and Trevor from me and Maggie xxx

    Thanks, Derek. I’m intrigued how you realised about the bad language in a Chinese province. I didn’t realise your Chinese was so fluent! Hippy Now Yurt!
