Review comment and event.

At last somebody has thanked us for the pantomime. I was hoping for some feedback and when they said it was’just brilliant’ and’made them chuckle’ I was so grateful. I’m not sure I’ll do another one, especially as I am focused on the next novel at present but it makes me feel it wasn’t a waste of time. I was really proud of the cast and they deserve to know their efforts were appreciated.

Sorry I can’t tell you about the book. I know some folk put excerpts on line as tasters but I like to feel the reader can identify with the characters and that’s impossible in a short piece.

I am looking forward to the book launch on 17th February when Elaine Hankin will have ‘Footprints on my Doorstep,’ Anne Saker will have ‘Matilda and the Waltz of Life’ and Wendy Hughes will have ‘ The A to Z of Curious Sussex;’ three very different books by excellent local authors. The venue is Heene Road Community Centre in Worthing, time- 10am to 1pm.

website problems

More worries about the computer. I seem unable to reach my webmaster to update my website and now it is quite out of date.

After the launch on 3rd June I tried to get “A lesson for the Teacher” on Amazon. The cover appeared but nothing else. I can supply copies from the website orders but I am having problems trying to provide Amazon with an ebook version. I’ll get there eventually but it makes me feel so ignorant.

I still haven’t written anything worth telling you about but I have completed the script for our next recording and been booked for a talk in 2017!

Reviews and news

When do you write a review of a book? I am finding that if I write it immediately after I have finished the book it is very different from when I write it a few days later. In fact, if I leave it too long I have forgotten what the book was about.If I write as soon as I can the review is better that if I leave it until later. But is this fair? Surely the books that live in the memory should rate higher?

Now to try and find the launch photo.DSCF0861

Book Launch

Don’t say it isn’t worth it! Three of us had a brilliant book launch today at a local hostelry with over 50 people attending and plenty of books sold. I even had one customer who bought three copies! We provided cake and coffee and saw friends, relations, neighbours and people who had just seen it advertised.

OK, so we didn’t have champagne but we did stay for a nice lunch and went home satisfied.Now to find out if word gets around and the books make an impression.

New Novel

Hi folks. I guess putting the details of “A Lesson for the Teacher” onto Pages in May wasn’t the best way to advertise it and it isn’t easy to find on Amazon. It is on Goodreads and Waterstones’ website.

For anyone who wants to know it is ISBN 9780955724282.After the launch on Friday it should appear on my website.www.juliecround.com.

More promotion

Well, I got my name and news onto the radio. I think that’s probably enough promotion for now. Once the book is published I’ll do more.

Back to giving talks next week. I really enjoy going to WI meetings. Each one is slightly different and they are all so friendly and positive.

Next event WOW on Monday and I have my ‘sixties’ piece ready to read, along with a couple of poems from “Honey and Humbug.” I still haven’t any inspiration for further writing. I hope this changes soon!

Fast Pencil

I don’t know how to do a search with a tag so that I can find my lost followers but hooray! I am beginning to reach you all again except for the blogger who uses fast pencil and reblogs all the time. Please come back. I’ll hope putting this title on will assist the discovery.

Amazon should soon have my latest book on, although it won’t be officially published until next month. I’ll have to go up in the loft and find some of the other five as there may be folk at the launch who have not seen them, especially as there are three of us with books this time.

I’m getting to like my new laptop. Now all I have to do is find some of the apps I would like to have on, instead of all the crazy games.
