Black Dog

No, I haven’t been on holiday all the time since my last post. Simply that I still don’t have a publisher and it’s now getting embarrassing when people ask. Also, beyond depressing. Thirty years, never out of print, and now this. I mean….

So although I haven’t yet given the order to lower the lifeboats, I do have a plan. If no-one has snapped me up by August I’ll self-publish. To which end, I’m now scheduling one day a week to learn how self-publishing is done. There are other new skills I’d much rather be acquiring, but there it is. Needs must.

I’m currently working on Book 2 of a series no-one wants and have co-opted Sir Harry Lauder as my personal trainer. You too can get spurred on here. ‘Round the bend’ is about right!

    That is unbelievable that someone with such talent and range struggles to publish when “celebrities ” seem to have no problem.

    Agreed, Linda. As the “black dog” reference leads back to Churchill, I will quote another useful Churchillian saying: “Keep Buggering On!”
