New Beginnings

Happy Easter to one and all and I hope you are all enjoying the time off from work, catching up with friends and family and generally relaxing? We all need to have a break sometimes!

I have a week off (yay!) and start a new role at the beginning of April. I’ll still be delivering adult education qualifications, just in a slightly different way, and I am looking forward to the new challenge.

I’ve been a bit quiet on here for a week or so (sorry, if you’ve missed me) but I’ve been unwell – there are so many bugs going around at the moment and I caught a particularly nasty one that settled on my chest, unfortunately, and wiped me out spectacularly. It appears to be on its way out now – something to do with the heavy duty antibiotics and inhalers, no doubt – and I’m praying that it stays away at the end of them. Fingers crossed, eh?

Nan Nose Best is now edited and I am starting to get some feedback in from the readers who have been kind enough to trial it for me. The overriding consensus appears to be that it’s good! One person suggested it would make a good family film – and now it’s been said, I can imagine it only too well! (Delusions of grandeur? Moi?!!)

So now I have a decision to make: do I submit it to agents/publishers and wait for months in the hope that it will be picked up, (and then wait for a further year or more for actual publication), or do I go indie? Either way will mean that I have to promote the heck out of it, and I’m beginning to see signs of saturation with book ads on social media, which makes me nervous. So, how do you get your work in front of those who matter? And by that, I mean the people who want to read it…

What would you do?

  1. Thank you! Those are very kind words and have given me a (much needed) boost! Am currently going through the Writers & Artists Yearbook to see who would be a good fit for this one. I’m giving it six months…


  2. You’re a great author. I’d say give the traditional way a try. Set a timeframe and stick with it. If nothing comes of it, go the Indie route.
