Good News

Thought I’d share some good news today -

1. My editing of the story I shall submit to my RNA New Writers’ Scheme is going well.

2. Attended my first RNA Birmingham Chapter group on Saturday. Haven’t been into central Birmingham on my own for many years, but I made some new friends and thoroughly enjoyed the meeting and lunch. Jean Fullerton came all the way from London to join us and shared some helpful insights about marketing and characterisation. Thanks to Marilyn Rodwell for organising the event.

3. I have been chosen to give away copies of Pride and Prejudice to people who would not normally read it on World Book Night. I am looking forward to lurking in the High Street and cafes giving away my books.

4. My big son got a job!!!!! Yay. Those who have read my previous post about The Lucky Button will understand. He graduated in Summer 2011 and has managed to get down to the last few in several selection processes, but this time he got it. I am so pleased and proud.

5. Watch out for a competition on my blog in the next few days.

Hope you are all having a great time too, please share lots of good news in your comments.


  1. It was good to see you on Saturday, and lovely to meet you too for the first time. Hope you enjoyed it enough to return. Well done on your writing and editing too. And huge congratulations to your big son for getting himself a job! Something worth celebrating!

  2. I love Pride & Prejudice - my favourite book - I've got two copies! Giving them away is such a great concept - I hope you enjoy it.

    And congratulations to your son.

  3. Marilyn - I will be back!

    Annalisa - I'll no doubt blog about how it goes! Mx

  5. I love good news - and yay for World Book Night :-)

  6. That all sounds great news Morton - hooray! The good news here is that the sun is shining, I was able to take some photos for the new walks book yesterday, and I'm off to singing shortly!

  7. Catherine and Sarah - Thank you. I am looking forward to giving away books.

    Flowerpot - The sun shining always makes me feel better. Loved the video of your singing group breaking into song in the shopping centre. Enjoy! Mx

  8. Glad everything's positive! I'm giving away The Secret Dreamworld of a Shopaholic (my second choice - I wanted The Book Thief).
