First Draft

Standard

If it wasn’t already exciting enough for me to know that DAVID GOLDON’s first fiction, ENGLE BYEN: A Place To Call Home is being released next month … I have just read through the first draft of his follow up book THE ROAD TO ENGLE BYEN.

In the second book in the Engle Byen series we are treated to the prequel to the first story.Β  Most of my questions about the first book are answered and a bunch of new questions are brought up as well as some amazing new characters.

It may only be a β€˜first draft’ but there were only a minimal number of things that needed to be reviewed.

I loved it and can’t wait to read the third book he is now writing.

FINAL EDIT: Engle Byen Book 1

Just finished the final edit and proofing of DAVID GOLDON’S first book … ENGLE BYEN: A PLACE TO CALL HOME.Β 

No matter how many times I have worked through various sections separately, or read through the entire story from start to finish, this last full read through still managed to reduce me to tears at the end.Β  David is a great writer, this is a wonderful story.Β  I really want to see this as a movie or on TV … desperately.

Launch day

Standard

SO, I get up yesterday morning, turn on my laptop so I can post the launch of this new site … but the laptop decides it is doing a MAJOR update that will take 2 hours! WHAT? I’m supposed to launch my site in 30 minutes! Don’t panic … remember, there is always a solution… πŸ€”

After about 15 minutes I realise I could use the old laptop to get onto FB, but, of course, it runs VERY slow and I have no idea what my FB password is since it automatically logs in on my good laptop. I try anyway.
Eventually, I work it out, log in… and wait … it decides to be really slow … 😦

I must persist … I must get this page launched and I will NOT be held to ransom by typical crap 21st Century technology! 😠

So I persisted… and I launched (only a few minutes behind schedule)… and I hope you enjoy the page… and the new laptop finally just finished updating an hour later … πŸ™‚

Yes, there IS a solution to every problem … just breathe, think, and go for it! πŸ€—πŸ€©

Below are the posts that I shared on Facebook to promote the launch:

I am SO proud of this creation and it provided great therapy and distraction for me during a time of great stress after an incident at my former work … stay tuned for more about all that in future posts!
