Winding Down Well!

Written a couple of weeks ago in Orlando Florida: I hate goodbyes. The real ones anyway. And June has become for us the beginning of our second half. I think I expected the last official day of work to be the beginning, but as we are needed for other things less and less, as some... Continue Reading →


Wrap Up for 2017!

Well, in theory, it's 2 days till Christmas, .....but we can't wait that long (and life of course, is complicated!) for our family, this year, today is Christmas Eve (very convenient for a Saturday), tomorrow is Christmas Day, and both Monday & Tuesday are Boxing Days 🙂 I'll try and keep this short, as...

Infiltrate or Collaborate?

Two completely different words, with completely different meanings, and yet some people get them totally mixed up! As you know, I am all about collaboration, "paying it forward", and being a genuine part of a community. If an author wants to sell their books they need to build a launch team and if they want...

Interview with author Alex Carver

Hi Alex, it's nice to meet you. I see that you write under your pen name, are you able to still tell us a little bit about yourself? I’m 30 ish (with the emphasis on ish) in need of exercise, though I blame that on sitting at a computer all day, and I have an... Continue Reading →

Ethical Launch Teams Part 2:

 Yesterday I started a Facebook Group for anyone who is interested in the whole concept of Launch Teams. With so many people doing their own publishing, it has become imperative to also do one's own marketing as well, and if you are a writer like me then that is HARD! I am not a sales...

Building an Ethical Launch Team!

The ink is still wet on my first book and I am already planning the next one. Actually, the next few books were written long before the Lion and the Peacock was even an idea, but that is beside the point. It is and forever will be my first book and it is not by... Continue Reading →

The Lion and the Peacock

Thanks Ren what a great post… thank you! Funny how you inspired me first, so don’t forget that!

Next time I’m complaining that my Ehlers Danlos Syndrome has turned me into a useless blob, I’m going to remind myself that my fellow EDS-er, blogger and spoonie wrote a freakin’ book!


It’s not very long, in fact, it only took me an hour to read it on my Kindle app – which is good as an hour is just about the limit of my attention span these days. The Lion and the Peacock is a short book about Jennifer Peacock-Smith’s battle with anxiety.
