Snow in the Springtime
A blizzard has brought a wintry blast this week so I've spent a lot of time indoors reading and writing.
After the Burning: Dystopian Stories is out in less than 2 weeks! The book now has a Goodreads page so you can add to your ‘want to read’ list. Pre-order from Amazon to get the book delivered to your Kindle on 23rd March. Available on Kindle Unlimited too!
I’ve also been working on my new project - a non-fiction book! More details in the near future. I’m planning my next fiction too, but it’s only in the ‘scribbled notes’ stage at the moment…
Soon I’ll reach another blog milestone - 900 posts! I might even pass 1000 this year and have to do some kind of celebratory post. I have been getting well over 100 views some days, mostly from search engines but sometimes from Twitter, which is the main place I promote the posts.

In mid-March last year, I visited Kew Gardens specifically to see the magnolias. The weather was glorious and the spring flowers were absolutely stunning. I included lots of photos in my blog post. The best one is probably the green parrakeet in the pink blossom!
