The end of July, 29th to be precise I tuned 50, yes the big 50 and you know what, it's rather grand to say 50 when I'm asked my age and not 49. As whenever I said I was 49, all I heard was, "NOT LONG TO THE BIG ONE." So the big one came and it has now gone, so time to reflect......................................Reflection complete and now to see out the rest of the next half century.......well okay, maybe a quarter then!
My next project is my next book, my third. No title as yet, as I believe a title should come once the book is complete, just like the naming of the chapters. Exactly what I did with Wrong Place Wrong Time and My Way. It's just my way of doing things, each to their own I guess.
I am 25k words into my third book and it has been like that for a few months, as I have started a new job, and moved, the things that get in the way, so it has been on the back burner for some time. But now I am ready to tap away, as I am doing right now and complete the book and send to my brilliant editor Elaine Denning, who will no doubt be thinking, "You should have sent this blog post to me to edit before publishing it." but I have to do something on my own for a change. I am 50 for heavens sake!
Also, I'm rather chuffed with the rankings for Wrong Place Wrong Time, currently #3 in Biography in UK and was #1 in Spain, Australia and Canada. Also in the top 50 in Drama as well. But what has amazed me is the number of reviews, over 330 with 200 being 5* and 52 being 4*. Yes there are 1/2/3* reviews, and that is the beauty of personal opinions, which keeps it real of course. If one could please everybody, one would bottle it and sell it, wouldn't one?
Well that is about it really, thank you for reading, if you have enjoyed me muttering along, let me know and we can do it again some time!
