On Wednesday July 8th 
my debut novel
Secrets in the Dark 
will be available to buy 
in bookshops, online (currently on pre-order) and on audible. 
.
This is so exciting for me as I started writing this book 2019, 
finished it during lockdown 2020, 
self- published it with an independent publisher August 2020,
and then...
a literary agent loved the story and began representing me March 2021 
and 
sold the book to Headline Accent who moved incredibly fast (literally in a couple of months) to edit and publish this brand new edition of Secrets in the Dark 
Available iinitially on Kindle (on special offer at only 99p atm) 
and the paperback and audible

My personal Covid lockdown story out this week ( written by myself) on the online website www

My personal Covid lockdown story out this week ( written by myself) on the online website www.femalefirst.co.uk-  in the books and authors section.
.
How my debut novel "Secrets in the Dark" came to be finished, edited and published as a result of being ill with the virus and in self- isolation from my family and friends from March onwards.
.
It just goes to show that even when faced with challenging circumstances always remain positive and never give up. 
.
It's never too late to start a new career even at age 65.

Sunday’s daily walk – finally wearing jeans, not leggings – and with clean hair too

One day each week wearing normal clothes seems to help mental wellness and even brings a tiny bit of the old normal back again into your life – even briefly.

Sometimes we all need to stop and take stock of where we are now and where we would like to be

Sometimes we all need to stop and take stock of where we are now and where we would like to be... say in three months, six months, a year.
.
The start of this new decade 2020 can fill us with renewed hopes and expectations. 
But be realistic in your aspirations.
.
Keep visualising......the possibilities:
Make your visualizations a reality.
Could it be.....
A new romantic partner in your life.
An abundance of money flooding in to pay bills.
A fitter body achieved with a new healthy lifestyle and exercise.
An exciting job you would like to be offered.
But 
Give your dreams a chance to be fulfilled. 
Rome wasn't built in a day and it's still only the 2nd week of January.

Small steps. . When life is tough don't give up.

Small steps.
.
When life is tough don't give up.
It's easy in January to make all those unrealistic  resolutions and set yourself up to fail.
.
So start your journey with small steps.
A step by step change of thinking.
.
It could be that you want to:
Change your life.
Become fitter, healthier.
It could be anything........
.
Start each day when you wake up to be grateful for 3 things in your life. That way the day will begin  on a positive note.
.
Remove any negativity and replace with positivity and the possibilities of what you can achieve with each of those small steps.
.
Be the master of your own destiny.
