I can smell spring coming!
Even up here on the Isle of Skye, hints of spring are afoot. We have had Snowdrop Day at Dunvegan Castle and seen the first brave daffodils in sheltered spots. We have even sighted the sun once or twice.
I have been away in France so my blog has rather taken a back seat since the New Year. But I am back at my desk regularly now, working on a redraft of my fictional biography of William Augustus Bowles.
I am also trying to engage with potential readers in other ways. Today, I am talking and reading to the Skye branch of U3A (university of the third age). I have also produced an article on ReadersMagnet in their Authors' Lounge.
You can go straight to the article here:
Next month, I am attending the Scottish Writers' Association annual conference near Glasgow where I will share a display with Scottish History Writers zoom group and have my books for sale.
There are also some new reviews and interviews in the pipeline which I hope to be sharing in the next few weeks.
I have been accepted to write an article for The Historical Times Special Edition on the Myths & Legends of Skye which I am excited about, although the deadline is tight so I really must get on with it!
I have entered a couple of competitions too and will let you know if I have any luck. I wish everyone the very best with their current projects, whatever they are.
