This will be my last post this side of Christmas. It’s the season of good tidings and I have some good news to share.
A few days ago I heard that my second novel Displacement has been selected by the IndieB.R.A.G. organisation to receive one of their medallions. Of all the indie-published books submitted to them only 10% are selected for the medallion sign of approval and quality. Click on the link above to learn more about this organisation and to see my book displayed along with those of other honorees. Needless to say I’m delighted to have had my novel chosen.
As for the work in progress––my children’s novel is almost at the end of the editing process. Once again I’ve used the services of John Hudspith, who I describe as an alchemist of prose. Editing this book with him has been as inspiring and instructive as always and the story is well polished and ready for readers. The equally talented Jane Dixon Smith has designed the cover for the book (she designed my other two book covers) and I’m very pleased with what she’s come up with. So, The Silver Locket is on track for publication early in 2015.
In non-writing life there’s been more good news. I got a call last week from the local newspaper to let me know I’d won a Harris Tweed owl doorstop in a prize draw. Pretty cool! It will be much more attractive than the plastic wedge I currently use to prop the kitchen door open. I await its delivery.
And that’s it. I hope all my readers have a wonderful Christmas and see you on the other side.

Thanks, Elle. Merry Christmas to you too.
Congratulations, you have had a lot of successes recently. 🙂
Thank you for visiting and for taking the trouble to comment. Merry Christmas.
Well done, you! Oh, Anne, that’s wonderful news and much deserved. What an honor to be recognized for your tireless efforts (and those of your editorial and artistic companions). I love the cover of both stories as well. They’re so enticing.
And speaking of enticing, those little tartan owls are adorkable. How I wish I could find something like that here. Although, to be honest, I usually just put the hound into service. “Stay, Haggis!” And he does.
Happy new year to you. Here’s to some brilliant success for 2015!
Why thank you, kind lady. Is your dog really called Haggis? I’d love it to be true 🙂
Yep. Couldn’t think of a better name for a hound that was part highland cow, part sheep. He truly is the best friend and best dog I have ever had the pleasure of sharing air with.
But I would never eat him. He’s way too delicious to simply squish. 😛
Yes! Excellent name 🙂 And, no, please don’t eat him.
