So Long, Farewell…

OR cover 3I offer a fond goodbye, as I step out of my “author” persona to concentrate on something new and sincere wishes for all my writing friends, as you persevere in the art.

I’ll always be grateful for the opportunity to stretch my creative wings, to study the craft and share my words with a wider audience. I’ve had a novel, memoir, short stories, poems and articles published, won a few prizes, had great reviews and thoroughly enjoyed co-writing two radio plays, as well as meeting loads and loads of kindred spirits.

Crooked Cat Publishing and my fellow authors have done their best to help me master social media, effective marketing and promotion skills but I always seem to be running to catch up. After thousands of hours, I’ve finally lost heart. I’m sorry sales haven’t been better for my publisher’s sake, despite their investment in time and money (including 3 different, brilliant covers).

If I’m honest, I’ll be a bit relieved to be able to spend my time reading novels instead of promoting them, when Once Removed comes to the end of her contract with Crooked Cat in February. There are just a few more weeks to purchase a copy.

Best wishes to you all and thank you for your support.

    I’m horribly sorry to see you go from social media but I’m one of those kindred spirits who also feels the pressure to ‘keep up’ and there are times when you just have to look after number one (and the twos, threes, fours etc that are now appearing in your life.)
    You were the first ever author I met in this ‘ere Yorkshire and I know that I’ll be seeing you – anyroadup. So I’m not really going to miss you. 😉 And I know that whatever your’e doing, you aren’t far away and you will be doing something that puts your exceptional talents to good use. Mwah. xxx

      Thank you so much for these kind words. It’s taken this long before I could bear to visit this blog! Funnily enough, I’ve been getting more interest in the book recently, so may have to find a way to bring it out as an ebook under my own imprint… How are your sales going and will we see the second book anytime soon? xox
