Veracity - guest blog March 2015 Veracity - guest blog March 2015

Well here it is - the full blog as featured in Verulum Writers' Circle #28 newsletter - Veracity. Just out, it's a regular round up of all things writing - bit like RiWiSi but been going waaaay longer. They do a good annual 'how to write' workshop day too - more info on their website. My original blog is on archives to the left, but to read their newsletter just (click here to download their newsletter #28).

Book of the Week

Tricky one this, as I've just begun the next in the Outlander Series. See last week for full info of why I rave about them! Am looking forward to watching the whole eight hours of the long awaited TV version now on Amazon Prime, I'm gonna binge-watch it on Good Friday - it's going to be my treat to myself after so much hard work lately, in my quest to get another book published, and am looking forward to it. An Echo in the Bone : Outlander Book 7 is fab so far - and takes a different turn by covering 
other so-far peripheral characters more (Jamie Fraser's 'other' son) and am loving the extra time travel elements in this one. I won't say too much or it'll be a spoiler (like some silly woman did at the talk last weekend - just spouted out a couple of the major plot lines in this book - really annoying if you're only on book 6!) Anyway go here on Amazon for it where you'll see the audiobook version too, and over 150 five star reviews.
