Well, I'm just back from a calm and restful holiday on Lundy Island.. with only Ravens for neighbours. That was wonderful.
I came up with an idea for one new story while I was there which I'm thrilled about, and also got some time between getting the fire going and cooking brunch to practice some watercolour painting as well.
But I can't go to bed tonight without a reminder that tomorrow I will be on a radio show with the highly entertaining Rob Pudner of Entertainingly Different, who has his own arts show 'Artz4U' on Soundart Radio FM. I am delighted to be invited on his show, and can't wait to find out what it's all about.
No doubt we will talk about music and self-publishing and SPONGE PUDDINGs... I'm hoping it's true - that his other guests 'Georgy Porgy' will be there and we may even get a live tasting of their wares on the show. Who knows? It's all action and adventure, right?
More news - the free download on the 30th September was very successful, and just over 500 (506 to be exact) people downloaded a free copy of Bradley and the Dinosaur that day. So I'm very pleased about that, and hope maybe a few new reviews may come in from that. Thanks to all of you for downloading and reading the book.
A special mention to some of the wonderful people I met on Lundy, and the wonderful conversations we had about writing - it's never been an easier time to self-publish - so if you're looking for some tips - or at least to hear about what I did wrong! Then tune in tomorrow...
Ooh.. there's more.. we now have an email address you can contact singing frog publishing on - firstname.lastname@example.org and I hope to set up a twitter account very soon. Not sure what we'll do with it.. but I'm sure we'll think of something!
