August Blog

Beautiful summer here on the Isle of Wight… I’ve been lucky enough this year, first time ever mind, to be able to enjoy our garden. It’s looking quite good, small or should I say bijou!!!! I’ve read in the sun, eaten alfresco and listened to the radio, bliss.

The 1st of August saw ‘Bella and Bentley’s Day Out’ Book Two out!! I dedicated this book to my amazing Mum and Dad because of there continued love and support and to thank them for honestly the best childhood I and my sister and brother could’ve ask for! For this month I ran a competition to win the book and some products from The Dog and I company in Devon that produces shampoos etc… Wendy Nivison and her lovely Bob were the winners and she kindly sent me this picture with his prize… apparently here he’d already had a bath!

This month too I booked myself a place at the The UK Southern Book Show for next year too… exciting times planned for 2018.

July Blog

Hi, this month has been quite busy. I finally got round to photographing all the bits of merchandise I had made. The ‘Little Shop Of Goodies’ page was created by Antonia on the website because if anyone knows me I still struggle with this computer lark… learning new things everyday though. I shall surprise myself and others one day! I now have the book bag that fits the books perfectly which I love. I’m very pleased with the mugs, keyrings and magnets. They were made by a lovely young lad here on the island. My very creative mum has made me some lovely handmade cards too! Still thinking of bits to add, got some good ideas in the planning. Also in July I connected to quite a few fellow authors of all genres not just children’s they have been amazing to talk to and have given me some great advice, pointing me in all the right directions.

This month too Book Two ‘Bella and Bentley’s Day Out’ was ready to print and Sarah again has done a great job. I’m so pleased…
