Getting ready for the launch of “A Lesson for the Teacher” on 3rd. June. We have been giving out posters and leaflets and sending invitations by post and on line. Not everyone replies so we don’t have much idea of how many people to expect but having it in a restaurant should encourage folk to attend.All three of us, Angela Petch, Elaine Hankin and me are launching together.Our books are very different so there will be something for everyone.

I can no longer claim my book is locally based so I’m hoping the fact that it is about teachers and set in the 1960’s will bring some new readers.



Seeking friends

Maybe if I do a list of categories and tags I’ll find all the folk I used to read. Anyone know the alien? I really miss his posts. Also a UK poet. I didn’t write down their names. I thought I’d always have them on the computer but now I’ve changed, I’ve lost them.

My news, I’m checking out sixties fashions for a workshop at Worthing WOW festival. I don’t have a mini skirt – or the figure for one, but I can read from the new novel, A Lesson for the Teacher.Off to post review copies this afternoon. Great fun!

hunting followers

So sorry to all my followers. Now I have a new blog I can’t reach all the people I was following, either. I didn’t keep a written record of them all so I’m hoping they all come back gradually.

I promise to try to write about self publishing, writing groups, novels and poems and maybe if I tag them properly you will all find me.

A Lesson for the Teacher is going out to reviewers and the three of us who are having a book launch on 3rd June at the Swallows Return had a meeting there this week with coffee and fudge!(Nice touch)

Poem – annihilation

Will it be an asteroid strike

That knocks humanity off its bike

Or will it be a nuclear war

Which flattens us to the floor

A pandemic spreading far and wide

To consign us to the other side

Maybe eruption and volcanic ash

Will cause the human race to crash

Or a tsunami high and fast

Making sure that we don’t last

Rising sea and desert spread

Leaving the population dead.

After all this speculation

About the world’s annihilation

The most likely consideration

Is our exploding population.
