Wonderful News!





I am so delighted to be able to tell you Murder on Tyneside was voted 6th overall in the recent competition to find the 50 best independent authors/publishers of 2017.


A big thank you to everyone who supported my novel during the voting period.

I have to add it was a nail biting time while I waited to hear the results. However it was well worth it to learn that Murder on Tyneside did so well in the count.

I have just realized that Only Twelve Days  is also free at the moment. I seem to be so tied up with the results of the competition that I don't know whether I am on my head or my heels!! 😆

The deadline is approaching fast - I believe the comp closes on 5th December. If you haven't yet voted and you would like to, then please follow this link: Murder on Tyneside

I understand that it takes you to a pre-filled form. All you have to do is add your name and email, as they want to make sure no one votes more that once for the same book. Then submit. If the link takes you to the home page of the site, then try again. It tends to do its own thing at times!! 😅

I will let you know how the competition went once I have the results.

A Big Favour - Please Help!

Hi everyone. Yes, it's me, Eileen Thornton and once again I am seeking a very big favour from you all.

I am sure you all helped me out earlier this year when my novel, Murder on Tyneside was in a competition to be Book of the Month for July. Well, whatever you guys did, it worked, because Murder on Tyneside won the vote.

Now it seems Read Freely are seeking out the best 50 books of 2017 and I do hope that Murder on Tyneside will at least be one of them, if not in the first 10 or so. However, I can't make it happen on my own.

Murder on Tyneside
Therefore, I need each and everyone of your to nominate my novel, Murder on Tyneside to be in the top 50 books for 2017.

As I said, Read Freely are running this competition. Simply click on this link:- READ FREELY which will take you to the site and fill in the nomination form. (It is quick and easy to do - you don't have to jump through any hoops or anything)

I would really appreciate your support.

Meanwhile, I am still working on a sequel to Murder on Tyneside, though I am very near the end. At the moment, I am in the process of trying to bring the whole thing together. Not an easy thing for me to do when I have loose ends flying all over the place. Nevertheless, I am really hoping to have it finished before the end of the year.

I am also trying to work out what to get for Christmas presents. This year I have started early - well earlier than usual. However, I I know that I will still be rushing around the shops or on the internet on December 20th!! How many of you feel the same way??

I think that's all for the moment,

I'll get back to you very soon

Take care and enjoy the day

Cheers!!
Chink! Chink!

Hope You Had a Good Weekend

Good morning - I say good morning, but it could be a different time of the day when you pick this up. Nevertheless it is a good place to start.

It's very windy here this morning. I gather it is going to be like that for the next couple of days. Therefore we will have to batten down the hatches, as they say.

Once again, it has been very quiet here - so no exciting news for you. I can't remember the last time I had anything exciting to pass on. Apart from anything thing else, it is the time of the year when things are quiet until Halloween, and Christmas start gathering speed on the the horizon and hurry towards us.

Here in the UK, we also celebrate Bonfire Night on 5th November with fireworks to mark the time when Guy Fawkes and a group of men decided to blow up the Houses of Parliament in London. As it turned out they failed. However, their efforts have been remembered for over 300 years.

I am still working on my latest novel. As I have probably said before, it is a sequel to Murder on Tyneside. It is going rather slowly at the moment, I'm afraid. I'll really have to get my head around it. I had hoped it would be finished by now, but things don't always go according to plan.

The Trojan Project




In the meantime, The Trojan Project is on special offer until Friday. This means you can download a copy for only 99c or 99p depending on whether you are here in the UK or in the USA.

The story is set in North East England and tells how a woman and her children are forced to flee the area when a massive green light and a swirling mist devastate the hills and the valleys.

A chilling suspense thriller!


Well I think that's all for the moment, but I do hope to be back very soon.

Meanwhile have a great week wherever you are!

Cheers!!

Hello Everyone!

Hello again,

It seems such a long time since I last posted here. But truthfully, I haven't had any news to pass on. Not that I have today, except my niece and her family are coming up to see us this weekend.

Our nephew started school this week and I was a little anxious that he might find it strange in a whole new environment. However, it seems he loved it, so no doubt he will be telling my husband and I all about it during the visit.

I recall the day I first started school. I found it strange to walk away from my mother into a whole new world. I think I actually cried as the teacher led me into a room full of strangers, especially as my younger sister was still with mum.. But that was a long time ago and there has been a lot of water under the bridge since then. Sometimes it flowed gently, but there have been times when it hurled its way downstream so fast, it was difficult to keep my head above the water.


My husband and I will be celebrating out 57th Wedding Anniversary this weekend. It doesn't seem that long since we walked down the aisle after signing the register.

We went to London for our honeymoon and it was really wonderful back then. So much so, we decided to move down there from Tyneside.  But I have to say, I really missed the northeast.

Not sure that London is the same now as it was back in the 'swinging sixties'. But I suppose everyone feels that way about places as the years pass.

I think that is all for the moment, but just before I go, I thought that you might like to know that you can read the opening chapters to all my novels on the All Author Website. Simply follow the link, scroll down and see which one you would like to try first..


Cheers!!

Hello Again!

I hope you are all well and have enjoyed your summer holidays. Though on second thoughts, some of you may not have been away yet - after all it is still only August. Some people prefer to take their holiday later in the year.

We tend to take ours at the beginning of July. The only down side with that is by the time we reach the middle of August I don't feel as though I have been away at all! Perhaps we should simply pack a bag tomorrow and go off on another jaunt! Actually that sounds like a good idea 😇

Quite honestly, the weather here hasn't been very good at all. We seem to have had showers every day for the last month. But I suppose it could be worse - it could be snowing!

We are in the process of having our garage painted - if it stays dry long enough for the man to do the job. We have a wooden garage, which looks rather nice, but it does require a paint job every so often.

I am sticking to my diet - I did mention I was on a diet so time ago, didn't I? Well anyway I am still working on it. However I am afraid the weight is taking some time to move. I get the impression it likes being around me; it must feel quite comfortable where it is so doesn't want to go away. 

I have managed to lose 12.5 lbs, but oh my goodness it really has been a struggle. Fingers are crossed that when I get on the scales this week they will show some weight loss. Last week I remained the same as the week before. How frustrating is that!! Nevertheless, I am still sticking with the diet. I will let you know how I got on after weigh day!

 Murder on Tyneside 


By the time you read this blog, my novel Murder on Tyneside will be on special offer. You will be able to download it for only 99c/99p.

You will recall that Murder on Tyneside was voted July Book of the Month at Read Freely.

Therefore now is the time to download a copy at this low price.




Well, I think that is all for the moment. I do hope you all have a great day and that the sun is shining down on you wherever you are!

Cheers!!
