Lost in a Book goes outdoors!

OK so I ducked out and went indoors on Saturday - but now I've booked to go to a Summer garden party at Stillingfleet Church ground and village hall -  Stillingfleet near York on 2nd July. The fun starts at 2.30pm and I'm hoping for sunshine... well I'm ever the optimist, we could be having a heat wave by then... and if not, well everyone could do with a new book to get lost in when they get home.

Book signing at Naburn

I had a good day at Naburn tabletop and craft fair on Saturday. This was supposed to be my one outdoor event of the season, but when I was offered an indoor or an outdoor table I went running inside for cover away from the storm clouds which were gathering, but I'm pleased to say that the clouds sailed innocently by so everyone stayed dry.

Getting distracted

The internet is a very distracting place, in fact I find the best way to get any actual writing done is to switch it off... But my dilemma is, should I be spending my time writing the next book, or trying to find new ways of getting my books out there to the wider population. Of course the answer is, as always - multi tasking. So I've done my bit of research on the net which has resulted in me ending up on amazon and buying a book... oh well I guess I'm just a lost cause when it comes to books... but now I'm going to switch off the net and write!

Outdoor event

I'm hoping for good weather on Saturday 18th June when I'll be doing a book signing at:
Naburn PTA Tabletop and Craft fair, at Naburn Primary School, York. 11am - 1.30pm I try to keep to indoor events usually but this one has the option of being indoors in case of rain, so no need to start thinking about gazebos.
I've heard a lot of traumatic stories about gazebos - anything from them tearing themselves apart in an attempt to escape their tethers, to actually flying away out to sea when their ropes weren't up to the job, so I've come to the conclusion that, far from being an inanimate object of shelter - they are in fact a wild beast intent on escape...
