My latest crime book DANGEROUS SHADOWS is now published as an ebook. If there are enough sales it may arrive on our bookshelves as a paperback.
Some good news. Sold a new crime book – ebook and paperback. My Christmas story, The Four Wise Men is in this week’s My Weekly. It is very funny.
All ages would enjoy it.
Several of my writing friends have been struck with the dreaded writers block. I know how it feels. It feels like the end of the world when you stare at an empty page.
Stella’s Solution: Read and read and read. This is your chance to catch up on all those lovely books piling up on the floor. Then switch on your computer and start a stream of writing about anything, the weather, the cat, the itch on your right elbow. Before you know it, a story will begin to form. It may not be what you were planning to write next but at least it has loosened those frozen words.
This lovely weather is perfect for writing in the garden. Many of my short stories have been sown and blossomed in the garden. Take notebook, pen, a cup of coffee and some cushions into the garden, find your favourite spot and suddenly you’ll see a butterfly or a nodding flower and the words will start to flow.
As it is this famous writer’s anniversary, I have written
a short story that airs many of his often quoted lines.
It’s called Nodding Violets. Fingers crossed.
I am sorry that I have not been in touch with my writing friends. It has been a stressful year nursing my husband day and night. Now life has to go on.
A new book out soon A Rose Named Vengeance and 403 short stories published.
Look forward to hearing from you.
We have just toasted the newly published Prosecco Fortune with Prosecco,
of course. We stood under and toasted a newly built porch so I will
not get wet looking for my key. We also toasted the new Princess.
A thoroughly enjoyable occasion.
This crime novel, set in Venice and the vineyards that produce
prosecco grapes, is published in hardback tomorrow. The ebook
comes out in May. Off to buy a bottle (or two) to celebrate
