New Novel

I have just selected a possible cover picture for the next novel,” A Bend in the Lane.”

It follows the grandmother from the ‘Lane ‘ trilogy from Blackpool to Italy and I wanted a Tuscan landscape, which I think we have found.

There’s something so good about being able to pick a cover, rather than letting a traditional publisher choose it. That’s one of the advantages of being a self publisher.

Now to concentrate on the Charity Gig.

Tortoises

Reading Mary Smith’s blog about turtles I realised I had a lovely picture of tortoises.

Can’t tell you anything about the new book until I find a cover, so here they are instead.

Travelling

Hubby and I went to the Daventry area for a couple of nights last week on personal business and he let me find the accommodation! That was dangerous. especially as I am a bit of a meany as far as hotels are concerned.

Anyway, I found the most reasonable nearby hotel and booked it, only realising too late that breakfast was extra. It didn’t matter. We could order it when we got there. I was looking for one of the more famous travel inns but they were too far from where we wanted to be. So I booked a GoodNight Inn, which turned out to be full, fair and friendly.

We had a lovely full English breakfast both days and the room, which appeared to be in converted stables, was adequate. In fact, two single beds put together to make a double was a little too large for a couple who like cuddles!

My photo from my camera will not load from my ‘pictures’onto media so I can’t show you what it looks like. I need to get this fixed. HELP!

 

New Theme

Somebody said if I change the theme I might be able to load my photos. OK. I’ve done that but it still won’t work.

I’d be glad to hear if you all like the new theme. if not, I’ll go back to the old one. I’m a bit fed up with the computer as it has a will of its own at present. Just when I was getting used to putting pictures on it stops allowing it! Now I have to find out if the problem is wordpress or the photos. It even won’t load ones it did before! Is this Windows 10’s fault?

I’m going to try again now, with a photo I have loaded before: That worked. New one didn’t.
